In this edition of ANFWMC the spotlight is focused on up-and-coming internette sensation #TOMCREW. Chances are you’ve seen their photoshops of Tom Anderson (MySpace) floating around the web. More likely than that, if you’re really hip to the electronic music internet scene you’ve probably heard one of 19 year old #TOMCREW CEO Tokyo Hand’s pieces on BBC radio 1 played by Eclair Fifi, Rinse FM, or the most recent compilation released through Donkey Pitch. If you are not familiar with the king, Tokyo Hands, I would like to implore you to first peep this track debuted on the BBC.
In a very cryptic way I’d like to let you know that Tokyo Hands is at least twice as prolific as you might think. He’s Burial. Juke, footwork, jersey club, whatever #TOMCREW makes it tight.
Foxy Brown, the co-CEO of #TOMCREW, is in fact the juke Justin Timberlake, according to certain sources. He resides in Oklahoma but runs the web by way of his soundcloud account. On many nights you can catch Foxy live djing on Tom Crew Tv.
I feel a little remiss only truly showcasing these two members but according to Foxy Brown, #TOMCREW is in an interim period, trying to decide which members of the community will transition to the formal label. Having said that, Keiska, Buckmaster, and Tielsie are all confirmed artists as of right now.
This Sophie remix is nearly perfect.
This message from Mad Decent sent via facebook with no explanation would seem to suggest that big things are popping.
Like so many internet crews, #TOMCREW, is actually comprised of living IRL people. In recognition of this fact they are going on a little Midwest tour in the coming month. Tour Dates Below.
