Notorious for releasing single after single, Teen Daze released his first full-length album “All Of Us, Together” this past June. His lo-fi, dance-trance music has beats which pump through your body and synths that whisper a breathy, sexy sound in your ear. “All Of Us, Together” is more like a retrospective of Teen Daze’s previous work; it’s a statement that shows he has found his sound. Teen Daze states: “It fully represents where I’ve come to as an electronic artist.” Does this mean Teen Daze is going to kick open a new window for future songs? We are just going to have to sit back and find out! In the mean time, YandP wanted to get to know the man behind the beats…
