SLEEPY TOM RELEASES AMATEURS FT. LIGHTS
AMATEURS EP OUT ON MARCH 15
AMATEURS THE VIDEO GAME PREMIERING VIA BILLBOARD TODAY
Toronto, ON – March 14, 2019 – Vancouver-based DJ and producer, Sleepy Tom, has decided to mix things up on his new EP, Amateurs, which is set for release tomorrow (Friday, March 15). Having broken the crowded EDM scene, Sleepy Tom sets to dip into the pool of pop. Continuing the move to a fresh new sound, he releases Amateurs ft. Lights, along with a coinciding video game, premiering over on Billboard today. Listen to Amateurs here.
In an interview with PopMatters, Sleepy Tom explains, “I wanted to make an EP full of pop songs, with dance influence. I had been writing a lot with my friends in Vancouver as well, so having them featured was important. The production style was something I'd done on the side while making club music the last five years, I just never explored it heavily until now. Felt like I'd been pushing it down because it didn't fit the club mold. Now I get to make club versions of these songs!”
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, Amateurs 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.
