There are few tales more compelling than the rise of the enigmatic producer, artist and songwriter Running Touch. The elusive and multi-faceted creative has spent the best of the past few years fast cementing himself as not just an incredible musician and performer but forward-thinking visionary in every sense of the word. Through his music, live-show and identity (or lack of thereof) Running Touch has curated a multi-dimensional brand that gives a focus to storytelling through art, performance and music and sits in a realm that is matched by few.
Looking back on a massive 2019, Running Touch took his sounds around Australia for a headline tour as well as heading tours throughout the UK and USA; including a very special set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Gaining a worldwide cult following, Running Touch has seen wide support from the likes of ZHU, ODESZA, Safia, PNAU, Crooked Colours and more.
As Running Touch continues to spread his vision and more fans take a liking to the weird and wonderful world of the Post-Modern Collective, it is no secret as to why people are calling Running Touch one of Australia’s most exciting talents.
