Tomson & Fyza – Elevate
Tone Control Music return to your ears with a collaboration from electronic deep house producer, Tomson and soul songstress, Fyza. Determined lyrics, and analogue chords cruise along live bass in a future boogie styled original, while Tomson provides house-heads a darker dance floor version in his self styled dub. Zed Bias engineered the recording, and Matthew Bandy set the faders right, to make this 16th, all original, Tone Control Music release.
Tomson is most notably known for his work on Freerange, Huddtraxx, Morris Audio, Kolour, Illusion, Urban Torque and his own we_ctrl label among many others. In a relatively short career, his productions have received support from DJ’s such as Josh Wink, Laurent Garnier, Deetron, Paul Woolford and BBC Radio 1’s Mosca. As a resident DJ at Manchester’s infamous Development parties, Tomson played alongside luminaries such as Masters at Work, Ron Trent, Lil’ Louis, Danny Krivit, Kerri Chandler, Dixon, Larry Heard and many others. Taking his influences in equal measure from soul and hip hop as deep house and techno, Tomson’s music comfortably morphs together inspirations old and new.
Singer, songwriter, vocal producer and make-up artist, Fyza is a truly multi-talented creative. Fyza has been established as a UK soul artist in her own right, releasing a consistent flow of music since the 90’s, with underground hits such as “Poetical Love”. Moving into House music circles in recent years, Fyza has worked with producers such as Zed Bias (as Phuturistix), DJ Kawasaki (Kyoto Jazz Massive, EMI Japan), and Phil Asher for his singles “Look at What We’ve Done” (Archive) and “Take Me Away” (Mn2s). Fyza writes and produces vocals for several up and coming artists on both sides of the Atlantic, and has worked with The Black Opera in Detroit.
