SLEEPY TOM New EP to be Released on Fool’s Gold Records
Sleepy Tom. The name is definitely what his skills imply. This Vancouver-based producer has been snoozin’ for the past few months or so, dropping some dope tracks on us for the past six months, from trap and moombah to electro. But for some reason, Sleepy Tom has been a total sleeper in the blogosphere.
I’ve been personally following this cat for quite some time now, ever since he dropped GIRLY. That won my Facebook like and SoundCloud follow, I knew this kid was just goin’ in. I mean just listen to it. The genre title is “Damn,” and you’ll soon know why.
It wasn’t until his edit of “Rumble To The Jungle” by Zed’s Dead that really pushed his following. The edit landed in Zed’s Dead’s show back in December up in Toronto.
But that’s not the last time ZD used it. I guess they’re keeping it Canadian, since it popped up as the third track on Zeds Dead BBC 1XTRA ‘Diplo and Friends’ mix from last Saturday, which can be downloaded off their SoundCloud.
It doesn’t stop there. As per monthly ritual, A-trak dropped FOOL’S GOLD RADIO 2013 MIX, capping it off with Sleepy Tom’s Girly. See, I told you. Fast forward to yesterday and we saw yet another blimp of Sleepy Tom on the map via the FOOL’S GOLD BLOG, with good ‘ol Mr. Goldbar announcing that Sleepy Tom will be releasing his EP on Fool’s Gold Recs, one of our personal favorites. As a cock tease, Sleepy Tom bestowed us with a teaser as to what will be expected with a track titled “HIT EM” for our favorite price: FREE! This is not on the EP, just a little gift for all of us to twerk to. His EP will be hitting “shelves” fairly soon with Fool’s Gold and can be downloaded directly from SoundCloud.
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely going to keep your eye on this one. You’ll see a lot more of him in the next year.
