Reuniting for their first collaborative outing since the July 2022 release of their Siolim EP on Rebellion der Traumer, Tomy Wahl and Los Cabra’s new White Nonsense EP on Sincopat delivers everything we’ve come to expect and more from the two in-form producers, who have been going from strength to strength with each passing release over the past few years.
With early support already in from the likes of Tale of Us, Fideles, Oostil and The Element, the double-sided journey begins with the gripping title track White Nonsense; a veritable sonic feast combining powerful bass, stunning synths and an unexpected main break that’ll leave audiences and listeners speechless. On the flip is Roboticsoul, a rousing peak-time cut that commands attention from start to finish; its hypnotic bass and ethereal vocals transporting us to a dimension where time and space cease to exist.
We sat down with Tomy to find out more!
Hi Tomy! How are you today?
Hi, everything good here!
Can you tell us a bit about yourself for our DMC audience?
I´m a normal guy who enjoys the simple things in life. I’ve been an overall music lover since I was a child. I dived in different music styles like rock or pop, but the last 20 years I’ve focused on electronic music.
Where are you based these days?
I’m at my hometown now, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
How did you get started in music? Was there a particular show you attended, or record you bought, that changed everything?
I made my first musical steps playing the guitar in several bands, in which I was also the producer. I learned to use all the computer softwares at that point. I gradually added electronic gadgets like synthesizers and drum machines, inspired in bands like Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Depeche Mode and Nine inch Nails.
The tipping point was when I started going to rave parties, like Creamfields, in the beginning of the 2000. From that moment on I begun producing club music and fell in love with it.
You’ve just released your amazing new White Nonsense EP on Sincopat with Los Cabra. What can our readers expect?
Yes, we are very proud of the outcome. This tracks perfectly combine both our styles, they are two powerful tracks that will set any dance floor on fire.
How did you connect with Christian for this release?
We´ve been working remotely for the past two years, time in which we released a track for Stil For Talent Label. Although we’re both from Argentina, our usual meeting spot is Goa, India, where we normally tour once per year. We gathered everyday and divided our time between going to the gym, visiting the beach and working at the studio.
How do you feel about the use and role of social media today? Does it take too much away from the music?
Social media plays a very important role in music nowadays. The promoters are more interested on how many followers you have rather than your art. This are the new rules that govern the electronic scene, you have no other option but to play the game.
This is not the way I would like things to be, but it is what it is.
Can you tell us something about yourself that only a few people know about?
Something that not everybody knows about me is that I like to keep an active and healthy living. I train 5 days a week at the gym and I run 1 hour twice a week.
Talk to us about your studio set up. Are you a big fan of hardware?
I use Ableton Live, a Fireface Ucx soundcard, Beyerdynamic 990 Headphones, Mackie Hr900 Monitors, Sonarworxs, Moog Subsequent 37, a Midi controller, AKG C-2000 Microphone and a good acoustic treatment.
When I’m on tour I only carry a laptop, a soundcard and headphones; all my last tracks were made like this. New hardware is always welcome, but I believe that there is not need to have a lot of devices to have a good outcome; creativity is the main ingredient.
What are 3 pieces of studio equipment that you’d be lost without?
Laptop. Soundcard. Headphones
How do you keep yourself entertained when you’re not making or playing music? Have you checked out any good movies, series, books, or albums you’d recommend?
I love to work out and to make outdoor activities like hiking and trekking.
Anything else you’d like to mention before we wrap things up?
I´m developing a new concept of visual live set, in which I will be playing a Moog synthesizer, live vocals, all with tracks of my own, combined with 3D Mapping visuals. For this purpose I will be touring with VJ Dogpw, one of the most talented Argentinian Vjs in the electronic scenario right now. We are planning a long term tour in America, Europe, Middle East and Asia, I’m very excited and looking forward to this. I believe that this concept is the future.
