Signal Flow is a new live electronic Dj and production duo featuring San Francisco's own Michael Tello of PillowTalk and Ray Zuniga. Originally from Los Angeles, the label mates migrated north to San Francisco and now live bi-coastal in NYC and Los Angeles allowing the opportunity to build a strong music network and expand the TOCR family worldwide. Michael and Ray began their musical collaboration six years ago, giving birth to the innovative partnership that is Signal Flow. Their international profile has risen quickly. With gigs at Berlin’s best nightclubs and Robot Heart Burning Man, 2013 additionally saw the duo playing across the globe at other hotspots in London, Mexico and Ecuador having quickly made a name for their eclectic sound and energy.
2013 marked the introduction of the duo's new imprint: Touch of Class Records. The label’s debut release by Signal Flow entitled “Dirty Hands ” features two prodigious original compositions including the lead track entitled “Dirty Hands” co-produced by label mate Jonny Cruz and laced with the signature sound and intoxicating lyrics of Berlin’s, Aquarius Heaven on vocals. Since the labels premier showcase and live performance after the BPM Festival 2013 in Tulum Mexico, the track has received serious buzz and positive acclaim. Accompanying the lead track is “Drug Lips”, a dark but beautiful deep techno beat with melodic and sultry vocal flavors by Wolf + Lamb newcomer, Navid Izadi. Supporting the two original tracks is a dubbed out disco funk remix of Drug Lips produced by Izadi himself and an instrumental mix which rounds out this new labels debut EP perfectly.
Signal Flow had their debut artist release this past summer, ‘Dananude’, on a shared EP alongside Guti & Luca Bachetti on Luca’s label, Endless. After that they kicked off the launch of TOC Records with their very own debut Dirty Hands EP. Their next EP will come this winter via Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom Records; followed along by a forthcoming remix on Get Physical.
As for their daily brainchild, TOCR, the label has a full 2014 release schedule of pure magic. The imprint will see its third release in December from new project, Pattern Drama, and expresses the vibe of the label. Signal Flow will be closing 2013 with upcoming label showcases at Miami’s Art Basel and the second annual TOCR “Midnite In Tulum” event which follows the BPM festival. It’s safe to say, 2014 will be a year to watch for the fast rising DJ’s, Producers, label owners.
