Vancouver’s Sleepy Tom has had quite the success with his releases in the past two years, from his debut release The Currency EP in 2013 to his collaborative Jobless EP in 2014. It doesn’t seem Sleepy is holding back for any amount of time putting out a handful of bootlegs and remixes between and after his releases plus his Pillowcast series that he puts out every month. This new year we’re sure will be full of fun and exciting tracks from the Vancity native with “Pusher” being his first single of 2015 which features Australia’s Anna Lunoe on vocals. Stream or purchase the fresh new track and check out our little interview with Tom below!
1. We heard you once were the Fool’s Gold mascot for a Blueprint event before you were with them, how does it feel to go from that to being on the label?
Yeah, it was the hottest day of the year on this A-Trak boat party, and kids really like to take advantage of mascots. Was a tough day lol. I’ve been signed to FG for two and a half years now, but I still feel super geeked to be working with them!
2. How did the track come about with Anna?
Anna put out this song “Breathe” on Fool’s Gold & she and the label asked me to remix it. I think it was one of the easiest remixes I’ve done because her vocal parts were so rad. We just kept and touch and sent some demos back and forth. She wrote on the demo of Pusher back in July & just smashed it :)
4. What are your main influences?
Thanks a bunch to Sleepy Tom for his time!

Germany’s Tube & Berger who have been steady at it for 15 years now will be bringing their immense electronic house catalog to Vancouver’s Fortune Sound Club with Joel Armstrong & Project Mavara getting things started. From early experimenting in the world of punk, the German duos first breakthrough came with their 2004 hit ‘Straight Ahead’, which featured the vocals of Chrissie Hynde and shot straight to the top of the Billboard Dance Radio Chart. Since this early success their output has evolved significantly, incorporating real-life recordings, samples and an intricate, emotion-laden production style to create records that are organic and evocative, without losing focus on packing that dance floor punch essential for the modern-day DJ.
