TOBY – Tax Free EP

Recently London producer TOBY announced he would soon be releasing his debut ep and gave a small taste with its first single ‘17’ – that ep is called ‘Tax Free’ and it is seeing its official release this week.

‘Tax Free EP’ is a diverse four-track collection of future-beat electronica with a creative tropical flare, minimal electro-pop elements, and strong hip-hop influences.

TOBY enjoyed experimenting with a variety of drum-loops and chord progressions, while also drawing influence from artists such as Flume and Kaytranada to help formulate the particularly diverse sound he was hoping to achieve with his debut ep. Each of the ep’s tracks has a strong melody-driven approach, which is one of the elements TOBY really enjoys experimenting with.

“My main aim for this release was to keep my music fun & upbeat, and I also really wanted to portray all the different styles & genres in my sound – and I think I’ve accomplished all of these things quite well”. – TOBY

The ‘Tax Free EP’ is in-fact a fun collection of upbeat tracks that are both impressive and inspiring as they play host to a wide range of genres & styles that will easily cater to many varying situations and moods. The guest vocal styings of Infuhmus and The Napoleon Complex help take TOBY’s music to all new levels as he continues to explore the outer regions of his diverse sound & style.

OUT NOW “Here It Goes” by Chris Ramos, An Inspiring Single On Paving Your Own Way 

As the latest track to release on the upcoming Emotions EP, “Here It Goes” by Chris Ramos is OUT NOW. With Chris lending his own vocals, the emotive track dazzles with rhythmic bass lines and atmospheric beats led by a heartfelt melody. “Here It Goes” tells an inspiring story of what it feels like to not fit in, letting it go and being yourself instead.
As Chris explains: “We’ve all been there. Pressure building up before that pinnacle moment in your life. A speech. A performance. A life-changing risk. “Here It Goes” addresses the fear we all feel when psyching ourselves out in front of that mirror before our big moment, and attacking it head on. At the end of the day, you need to live life to the fullest, face your inner demons and not look back. We’re not born to fit in, so be yourself and don’t refuse the opportunities life gives you.
