The Dutch DJ/producer chats to Sydney's Spank Records blog about his production tools, love of Amsterdam's club culture and Rush Hour records ahead of his Australian tour.
Alfabet, Yuro Trago,
Detroit-meets-disco vibe. Vocal hip-house workouts. Garage and late night electro-funk. Sleazy analogue synth wave. Upfront deep house.
These are just a few examples used trying to describe DJ and producer Tom Trago’s ever growing catalogue.
Like a modern day renaissance man, Trago refuses to be bound by the rules of just the one genre but mixes and matches all his influences, into an infectious concoction of mesmerizing grooves. Or as he puts it; “In the end it’s just about you developing yourself and not keeping up with the pressure of maintaining some kind of sound. If it’s honest music, your signature will always be there.” You might call it a hybrid form of house and futuristic boogie but maybe it’s better to just define it as the Tom Trago sound.
