TC AKA Tommy Boy chats to JosheeBee about his new Single ‘Hold On’ and album ‘Unleash The Wovles’. He also talks about upcoming gigs and where to name of his album came from.
There are few figures in electronic music who manage to combine commercial success with underground respectability. The Bristol-based producer and DJ known as TC is one such individual, utilising his talents to comfortably flit between remixing Number One artists and unleashing rave-razing bass-driven monsters pitched straight at the underground. First emerging with tracks for one of jungle/D&B’s most legendary labels, Dillinja’s Valve Recordings, it was the release of TC’s debut album ‘Evolution’ in 2007 that propelled the young producer to D&B’s top table.
After taking a short break from the spotlight, 2011 saw TC return to the raves and the airwaves in style, dropping one of the year’s biggest D&B bangers ‘Tap Ho’ while turning his hand to dubstep on ‘Concrete’ and drumstep on ‘Burning Starlight’ (both featuring vocals from Dread MC). Released through his own freshly launched record label, Don’t Play, the artistic freedom offered by being his own boss is already clearly paying dividends for TC.
