Baio, the solo project of Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio, followed up a string of EPs (Mira EP, Sunburn EP) with his full-length debut, The Names, in September 2015. Chris’ solo work is a continuation of his time as a college radio DJ, where he first fell in love with electronic music. “What I wanted to feel with this record was that it’s not a band record, it’s not a solo record and it’s not a producer record, but a combination of all three. I wanted to create a space where almost anything could happen,” he says. As a DJ, he's spun on Boiler Room, made several well-received mixes and performed all over the world. As a songwriter, he’s amassed praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Pretty Much Amazing, Spin, Paste and more.
