A big thank you to Tom for taking time out of his busy life to get involved with a quick little Q&A that is all business ;) Below is a little info about the man before we dive into the why of things.
Following a live music background, Tom Lown started DJing at various parties and clubs in London in the early 00′s including Peg and Plastic People. A move to New York City saw him pick up a residency at SubKulture and online outlets East Village Radio and Downshift Radio. Through his work at a New York studio, Tom composed and produced music for TV and commercials. Since returning to South East London, he’s had a string of well received releases on Sudup Recordings, Lost My Dog, 3am Recordings, Acryl Records, UM Records, Savoir Faire Musique and DeepWit Recordings.
And here is his latest release with us, his timeless and deep remix of “Oceanfront”.
