The High Beams EP (out Tuesday, 7/16) is his massive Fool’s Gold debut, coming off two of the biggest “every DJ plays this” remixes of the past year (Kanye & Co’s “Mercy” and Benny Benassi’s iconic “Satisfaction”) and non-stop international touring and festival appearances. The EP features five high-powered, tweaked-out hybrids of hip hop and dance music, including the massive “Secondary,” a collaboration with LA’s rap hero of the moment, Problem. R U READY 2 GET SPOOKED?

Vancouver upstart Sleepy Tom has quickly proved himself a young 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 original release, The Currency (hitting Beatport on 5/28), 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.
Check out some snippets below: from the supercharged house of “Let It Go” to the title track’s rollercoaster-worthy buildups, The Currency is one debut that’s impossible to sleep on. Don’t let the kid’s name fool you!
