City Series Mix Volume 68 (Summer Edition)
Astrocolor perform and record live electronic music, recalling the Chemical Brothers, Air, and St. Germain. The band plays on the edges of funky house, Balearic, breakbeat, and ambient.
Astrocolor II, the second release in an ongoing trilogy of EPs on Softtone/eOne, sees the band tackle minimalist house (“Tokyo Metro”), new jazz (“Figure it Out”), alternative house (“Push Too Hard feat. Fox Glove"), and dark breakbeat (“El Escape”). Mixed by Count (Tycho, DJ Shadow), Astrocolor II provides a silky smooth soundtrack at home or a chest-thumping experience in the clubs.
Astrocolor have performed at seminal West Coast festivals including Rifflandia, Tall Tree, Upstream and Song & Surf, and are quickly becoming dance tent favorites. The band formed in 2015 and are based in Victoria, BC, Canada.

"Beard-strokingly cool” UNCUT (UK)
“A sonic adventure full of creative experimentation and undeniable talent...uplifting complex, but undeniably easy to love.” Fingers On Blast (Canada)
