Sleepy Tom -- born Cam Tatham in Squamish, British Columbia -- spun a brand of deep house befitting of the '90s on his debut EP, The Currency.
Released in early 2013 on Fool's Gold Records
, the four-song release thumped and throbbed like Disclosure
(with just a bit more stank on the kick) and packed enough bombastic excitement for the festival scene, much like forebears Justice
. The Vancouver-based producer and DJ went on to remix tracks for some of the heavier hitters of the EDM scene at that time, like Zeds Dead
, Martin Solveig
, and Diplo
, who would collaborate with Sleepy Tom to score a U.K. hit ("Be Right There") in 2015. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
