This week I am going to introduce to you two Producers/DJ’s who are making a name for themselves and are being quickly recognized by many in the world of House for their unique sounds and production talent.
Tom Flynn has been working hard over the last several years to make a name for himself and it finally seems to be showing. I stumbled upon him through the likes of his releases through Dirtybird and immediately liked what I heard. He is known for his sets that feature a wide range of any and all sub-genres of house music and his productions are the same way; they range from the funkiest, disco-house to some really forward thinking, future bass to classic house tunes that incorporate elements of UK garage and tech house. He really seems to be hitting his stride and this can be seen with the sheer amount of tunes he’s been releasing as of late, along with the fact that each one is as good as the next. His most recent EP’s, Freshly Squeezed (released through Mobilee Records) andBe Yourself (released through Dirtybird), both released within the last month within days of eachother are a prime example of his recent spate of recordings and display his variety in production. The man truly is a fresh talent and one that is here to stay. If you didn’t know about him know you do and you should give his stuff a listen.

Shadow Child has not been around for that long but the man behind the name has and is someone you might already know of; Simon Neale is his name and you probably know him best by his production alter ego Dave Spoon. He has been making a name for himself for sometime now for his originals and remixes for the likes of Madonna, Pet Shop Boys, Calvin Harris, Funkagenda to name but a few. He released his first single “21st Century” with Toolroom Knights in 2005, was a DJ on BBC Radio 1′s showIn New DJ’s We Trust, and most recently started his own record label Televizion. Just as recently as this year though, he began producing under the name Shadow Child to dabble in different sounds that what he was previously working with. Due to the success of the project Shadow Child is here to stay, and if you listen to what he’s released so far you’ll quickly see why. The sheer quality of his tracks which I might call deep, quirky tech house is amazing and it all makes sense as to why this became more than a temporary side project. The tracks combine all these great elements from future bass, UK garage, tech house, along with his sheer musical genius to create the Shadow Child sound. Take a listen below and you’ll be thanking me for introducing you to Shadow Child.
