“I was first touched by Tom’s work in 2009, by his consecrated talent for forging raw, heartbreaking emotion into his music. Last week when he released “& It Was U” ahead of his full length Total Loss on Acèphale, I was taken aback with inspiration.
Over the next few days, I reworked the track into what I felt was a modern notch in the belt of the house music spirit. My goal is to contribute to the greater narrative and history of producers retooling r&b, soul and pop music for the purpose of working in the club and on the dance floor.” - Avalon Emerson
