Ahead of the release of Word of Mouth, Defected drop the Leftroom founder a line to find out about how he approached it. The press, marriage and labels Crosstown Rebels and Visionquest are also points of discussion.
From the Sunday morning warehouse to the Friday night super club, Matt Tolfrey is the perpetual young turk of London’s relentless techno carnival.
Leftroom label boss and acclaimed DJ/producer, Tolfrey knows a thing or two about crafting a musical world that is experimental yet playful, underground yet shot through with glitter and glamour, boundary-pushing yet unpretentious. His DJ sets acknowledge the trends without becoming a slave to them. His production references the history of electronica but adds a resolutely contemporary edge.
World-wise international DJ, cross continent party planner, and all-round infectious personality, Tolfrey is summed up best by Seth Troxler as, ‘Matt Tolfrey, the last great British DJ’.
