Magic Touch "Strongbow & Spliffs (feat. Roche)"

Los Angeles producer/DJ Magic Touch—who delivered a retro-leaning XLR8R podcast earlier this year—is set to embark on an Asian tour, making his way through Indonesia, Hong Kong, China, and Japan (for much of which he'll be joined by Japanese producer Oorutaichi). To help spread word of his ensuing travels, Magic Touch has dug into his vaults to pull out "Strongbow & Spliffs," a jacking house track crafted alongside fellow 100% Silk affiliate Roche. Built around a clap-heavy drum-machine core, the collaborative production comes bathed in hardware synth textures, its restless bassline joined by a number of gooey pads and delicately tweaked melodies. The pair's "Strongbow & Spliffs" track can be grabbed below while the full details of Magic Touch's upcoming Asian tour—which begins this Friday, May 30—are included after the jump.
