Emerging on the dance circuit in 2013, Sleepy Tom rose to prominence with anthems on the likes of Fools Gold and Mad Decent. Having broken the crowded EDM scene, Sleepy Tom sets to dip into the pool of pop. With a fresh new sound, he releases Move feat. Sophia Black from his forthcoming EP The Times.
With dynamic riff breakdowns and vibrant melodies, Move displays Sleepy Tom’s flourishing sound journey. Demonstrating versatility as a producer, instrumentals crossover to funk and jazz realms propelling the single to heights that rise above regular pop releases, whilst its energy still cements Move as a dance friendly tune. No longer restricted to one genre, Sleepy Tom explains:
“I started to feel confined to making strictly dance music,” the artist admits. “I wanted to explore pop song structures, more real instruments, more hooks – basically, to create a more accessible and intimate experience for people listening.”
Since his prolific rise, Cam aka Sleepy Tom has lent his production skills to the likes of Zeds Dead and Porter Robinson for official remixes with his remix of Martin Solveig‘s Intoxicated surpassing an impressive 7 million streams. Also producing incredible originals, he cracked the charts world-wide with hit single Be Right There alongside powerhouse producer Diplo. Now exploring new avenues, Sleepy Tom’s forthcoming The Times EP focuses on a more musical and collaborative effort that finds new levels of influences and inspiration, whilst still giving a nod to the hook-laden dance landscape that catapulted Sleepy Tom into the international spotlight. Although his achievements and accolades he’s amassed in recent years are ones to be admired, Sleepy Tom is no longer following anyone’s else’s rulebook, only the one he’s writing for himself and his first chapter is seriously compelling.
