-Hey! How is everything in the world of TC?
Really Great! I am more happy in this moment than I have ever been.
-You’ve been on the road gigging like crazy and appeared at Hospitality shows throughout 2014. Have there been any particular events that have stood out for you this year?
Every time I see Hospitality pop up in the diary I am like, “Yes! This is gonna be a lot of fun.” The Warehouse Project in Manchester was a particular highlight for me, I played after Etherwood and he was going in so deep. It was great playing to a big tunnel full of people – every time I dropped a tune I could hear such a reaction from the crowd.
-Being no stranger to how it goes down at the Hospitality, are you looking forward to joining us in Leicester on 31st January?
Leicester is gonna be a good one I think! As they all are for Hospitality. I actually have family in Leicestershire and will have to bring my cuz along, I might get a little drunk, don’t judge me!
-In the early summer this year we saw you and DJ Fresh smash it into the UK top 10 with “Make You Bounce”. That must have been fairly crazy? Especially with the festival season getting into full swing…
Yeah it was really unexpected and I am so happy to have been part of that record. Fresh is a great guy to work with and he’s so on the ball when it comes to hit making. I know he’s got some bangers that he played me that are on they’re way too!
-Another key release for you recently was your single “Everything For A Reason” which we’ve been absolutely loving at the Hospital camp. You’ve also had some epic reworks under your belt including Jess Glynn’s “Right Here” and Becky Hill’s “Losing” – two of the biggest vocal talents at the moment. How did those come about?
“Everything For A Reason” was a really personal one for me. I really wanted to sing on a record and have it work on the dance floor and it definitely works every time I play it out. It reminds me of the days of my old tune “Flatline” from my “Evolution” album. I am so happy with how it all went and can’t wait to release some more along the same kind of vibe next year.
With the remixes of “Right Here” I think it was a straight up label getting in touch kind of affair, I loved the original and Jess is killing it right now.
I know Becky Hill is a big D+B fan so I think she personally requested the Losing remix from me, I was so happy to remix that record!
-Are there any other emerging artists that you would love to work with?
There is so much great talent in D+B, every week I get a couple of tunes from established and up and coming producers where I’m like, “DAYM, that’s SICK!”. There are definitely acts I’m watching closely for dubs and tunes.
-What can we expect from TC throughout 2015? Any new releases scheduled in?
The next TC record will be “The Countdown” which is a free NYE giveaway record.
Then there is a record with Wilkinson called “Hit The Floor” which is a dance floor banger if ever I heard one!
-Looking back on this year, what has been your favourite track of 2014 and why?
Big question, so many tunes!
Hazard – “Bricks Don’t Roll” because it’s always the first remix of my set – people lose their minds!
-Christmas is around the corner so we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very merry festive period. Will you be taking a break or partying through?
I’m playing in Colchester on Boxing Day for Hiest and that’s about it, apart from Birmingham and Bristol on NYE. Its such a change to the normal Australia or USA bookings. I’m really looking forward to waking up in my own bed with a stinking hangover rather than some hotel thousands of miles from home.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with us. We can’t wait to see you in the new year and wish you all the best for 2015!
Thanks to you and big up to the Hospital Records crew! Thanks so much for the love looking forward to seeing you all in 2015!
