Anjunabeats Introduces: Tommy Farrow
Rising star Tommy Farrow joins the label with his remix of Grum
We welcome one of dance music’s most exciting new faces, Tommy Farrow, to Anjunabeats with his remix of Grum's standout album track, ‘Come Alive’ (feat. Sarah Appel). The 24-year-old counts Sam Divine, Jess Bays and Diplo amongst his fans, and recently supported Hot Since 82 at Manchester’s Warehouse Project. He’s since released on Stress Records, Shall Not Fade and Armada Electronic Elements, and recently signed to Sony Publishing. Farrow’s releases tread the line between breakbeat and trance, and he expertly combines the two genres with his ‘Come Alive’ remix.
Listen to 'Come Alive' (Tommy Farrow Remix)
“I wanted this remix to be a big room club record with a driving bassline and a bright trance-like lead - Sarah's vocals in particular were amazing to work with. I’m so excited to release this remix with Anjuna, they have an amazing following and the label is home to some of my favourite artists. I’m also a massive fan of Grum’s work, so I’m really excited to get this one out!”
Q&A with Tommy Farrow
Describe the Tommy Farrow sounds in three words.
Euphoric, energy, journey.
What are the biggest bangers you are listening to right now?
The Goom Gum remix of Alphadog's 'It's Insanity' is always a highlight of my sets. I love Kaz James' 'Footprints' and the Sparrow and Barbossa remix of 'Difficult'. They are more mellow but still amazing to get the dancefloor moving.
What is your favourite track to play out in the club?
I have an unreleased DJ Tool by Duke Dumont with a crazy two-minute breakdown/build up. Without a doubt, it gets the best crowd reaction whenever I play it!
Do you have a favourite Anjunabeats record?
It has to be Trance Wax 'Manaya'!
