Matt Tolfrey has embarked on his ‘Word of Mouth’ tour this month. Third stop on his route is our very own La Cave in Costa Mesa, California. The origin of his tour name is synonymous to the title of his latest record. Tolfrey describes this release by stating:
“I cannot play the piano and I am not professionally trained in any way musically, but through years of DJing I know exactly what I like, and I have great tracks in my head that need to get out. While searching the Internet for alternate ideas of making music, I came across some amazing software that enables you to simply sing or hum into a mic, which then translates into midi notes, which you then use as the basis of your tracks. In essence, it means that while I am walking the streets, or away travelling, and I come up with an idea for a bassline, or a melody, I can simply record it into my phone, return home, and sing it into the computer. In other words, ‘in theory’ the album is mainly going to be written with my mouth, not my fingers, and then fully realised with the help of engineers and guest vocalists – hence the name ‘Word Of Mouth’.”
Matt Tolfrey is a favorite among the top players in the industry, such as Get Physical, Cocoon, Rekids, Saved, Culprit, and Crosstown Rebels (with whom he launched his debut album in 2005). We can’t wait to see Tolfrey live tomorrow night (September 12, 2012) alongside fellow UK Ambassador, Gavin Herlihy!
Gavin Herlihy been exposed on a wide variety of house record labels. Herlihy recently joined forces on Air London – one of London’s most prestigious underground labels. With a love of hard bass, his sound takes us down deep waves. You are definitely not gonna want to miss this stacked night in The Cave.
