That's been the case for Tolfrey, seemingly, since he burst onto the scene in 2005, showcasing a deeper take on tech house via his Leftroom imprint. Since he began the label, Tolfrey has quickly become an international fixture, establishing himself as part of a new generation of DJs that includes Seth Troxler, Dyed Soundorom and Stuart Geddes. The trio are among Tolfrey's closest musical friends, all pushing similar agendas: Get darker, deeper, weirder. And have a lot of fun while doing it.
Tolfrey is clearly having fun these days, and why shouldn't he? With two new labels on the way—a digital arm to Leftroom, a bootleg label with Soundorom—and a number of productions with frequent collaborator Inxec set to be released, the humble DJ from Nottingham is living the dream. We caught up with him via phone late last week to find out what has been soundtracking that dream lately.
