Mounties – “Headphones (Sleepy Tom Remix)”

Sleepy Tom

Vancouver’s Sleepy Tom is definitely not sleeping at the wheel.  After his monster remix of “Voyager” with Krusha, he has now released his take on Mounties’ “Headphones.” The result is a lush trap-esque big bass bomb. There’s something about this track that makes you feel like you’re on a safari hunt, looking for the big catch with it’s punishing wood percussion, tribal chants, mystical vibes. Speaking to Magnetic Mag,  Mounties’ Steve Bays explained: “I met Sleepy Tom when he showed up on the stoop of my recording studio a couple years as a fresh faced intern. Within a short time I realized he was too talented to not pay, so I brought him in as my assistant. Within a short time from that, I realized he should just be focusing on his own music, so fired him but let him work outta my studio. Within a short time from that I realized he needed his own studio, and within a short time from that he was signed to Fool’s Gold. Somewhere in there he killed this remix.
