Drum Therapy

Drum Therapy is the debut album from Canadian producer Tor. Released on December 11th, 2012 on Emancipators new label 'Loci Records', it combines layers of downtempo melodic beats, organic instrumentation, and the unmistakable sounds of dusty samples. For the album, Tor mined everything from 60’s Italian film scores and long-lost Turkish psych records, to Celtic folk hymns, exotic eastern instruments and deep south gospel. He also played many of the non-sampled elements himself, and treated the sounds to give them the warmth & texture he had always wanted the album to have.

Physical CD also Available to purchase here.

All tracks written, arranged and produced by Tor

New Track + Album Announcement!

Tor - Aperture

Most of the feedback I get from people these days is asking me what the hell I'm up to, so I thought it was time to share. I am part way through producing a full length album of original tunes that I will be releasing sometime in the coming months. One of the songs on it is called 'Aperture', which you can stream and download for free below. Keep an eye out here and along the social networking channels for more news as the album progresses!

Illinoize turns 1

March 5th, 2010: Illinoize turns 1 year old today, and with over 50,000 downloads and still hundreds of new listeners every week, I want to say thank you! Also, everyone who has taken the time to email me, make a donation, or write about it in their magazines, blog, or tell their friends - a HUGE thank you!

I would also like to give a shout out to Asthmatic Kitty records for contacting me and extending a license for me to use Sufjan's samples - a really refreshing and awesome move from them, in a time where unfortunately a lot of record companies are still trying to resist the changes in how fans listen to, distribute, and manipulate music.

If you haven't heard Illinoize yet check it out, and if you like it become a fan on facebook, and keep checking back here for updates!

Cheers
