Artist of the day: Versus INTL
Like Washed Out, Versus INTL (a.k.a. DJ/producer Matt Moore) is a one-man electronic act with a lo-fi, atmospheric, "chillwave" sound. It's loungey, ambient and extremely fashionable at the moment, thanks to buzz-generating bedroom DJs like Neon Indian, Toro y Moi and Millionyoung.
Moore hails from Orlando but came to Tampa in 2005. As Versus INTL, he has worked with Prophit and Eye Alaska, and he's just released a new EP, Under Heavy Lights, that's available as a free download on their MySpace page. It offers even more fuel for the Washed Out comparison, as it includes an iced-out remix of Washed Out's excellent collab with Caroline Polachek, You & I. Click here to get the EP.
