Germany based D&B producer Tom Finster has possibly become a slowly growing presence within the genre’s global reaches. With releases on a host of imprints, including names such as DIVIDID, Neosignal and US based VALE, alongside remixes for the likes of Camo & Krooked and Mefjus on Hospital Records, he’s apparently garnered attention from some of the biggest pillars from the community.
However, he’s no stranger to electronic music, being a vital part of bass duo DONKONG, something which showcases his versatility across a range of styles. But it’s his forthcoming selection, one he’s decided to self-release, which is the opening chapter of 2022 for him and one which continues to define his alias musically.
‘Lights’ rolls out on sub basses sitting underneath the mix as its orchestral first breakdown takes you deep into the record with each rhythmic wave. Slipping into half-time midway through, punctuated by spoken samples, Tom flexes his production from the track’s start to finish.
It’s a self-release from the artist, a generation of producer who highlights their technicality through the all-encompassing nature of their sounds.
After the struggles of lockdown, which ended with an emotional DJ set on Let it Roll’s main stage, ‘Lights’ begins this year well for him.
