Tom Vek is an longtime personal and KCRW favorite. Since his future classic “We Have Sound“, Vek has built his signature sound on mesmerizing loping rhythms over which he floats super catchy crystalline melodies.
When I caught up with him a few months back, he told me about his increasing fascination with the Drum N Bass sounds of his ravey mid-90s youth.
We reminisced at length about Mo’ Wax comps, Goldie’s “Metalheadz“ and Bukem’s “Logical Progressions“.
You can hear it in a brand new remix of UK singer-songwriter Emmy The Great’s “Swimming Pool“, from her new EP.
Skirting the edges of trip-hop reminiscent of Lamb, Vek turned the track into a skittery dream with progressive Drum N Bass vibes and it’s a super sharp look.
