Following on from his pop crossover tune Move last year, Sleepy Tom gets set to release the Move Remixes. The two-track package sees breakbeat producer Otira and rising underground artist Dale Howard providing the remix treatment, taking the original to new, genre-defying realms.
Chopping Sophia Black’s vocal and reworking them into a majestic synth break down amongst a rumbling bassline, Dale Howard’s rework transforms the pop-tinged original into a punchy dancefloor track made for the club.
Meanwhile, Otira weaves in his signature and modernized 90s rave and hardcore productions with a 150 BPM. Using old school sampling techniques and Move’s melody for a pulsing bass drop, Otira takes us on a mind-bending journey with his bold genre selection.
Aiming to take Move in different directions, Sleepy Tom enlisted the perfect producers for the job, “Otira and Dale brought it to both ends of the club-spectrum and I couldn’t be happier!”
With Sleepy Tom’s Move amassing 250K streams and counting as he returned with a fresh pop sound, the newly released remixes allow the producer to delve back to his dance roots that initially catapulted Sleepy Tom into the international spotlight. If the original is anything to go by, the Move Remixes look to demonstrate Sleepy Tom’s impressive ear and skill for a finely tuned production.
