Sleepy Tom “The Currency” Out Today!

Posted on May 28th, 2013 by Mr Goldbar

Vancouver upstart Sleepy Tom makes his Fool’s Gold debut today with The Currency, four tracks of high-powered electro house out today on Beatport!

Yung Sleepy has quickly proved himself a master of all things massive. His hometown parties and DJ sets alongside some of electronic music’s biggest names have earned a rep as Canada’s funnest. His internet incinerating bootlegs and official remixes (including an especially chunky take on Diplo’s “Set It Off”) can be heard everywhere from BBC radio to festival stages around the globe. And now with his first EP, Sleepy Tom takes his taste for overdriven laser riffs, donk’d out kick drums, and all manner of speaker-zapping dance music to an even higher level of OOMPH.

Pick it up now, and check out these snippets for a taste…
