Tommie Sunshine tells us: “At the start of this year I began working with Live City. I played them tons of Melbourne Bounce the first time we met & they asked me if I had ever heard of Deorro.
I had not but when they played his music for me, I freaked out! I unsuccessfully tried to track the ever elusive Deorro down but had no such luck. I figured he had already had his head in the clouds & I almost gave up. When we finally did connect, we laughed because not only is he one of the most genuine & gentle artists I’ve ever met, but he reminded me that I had reached out to him long ago when he was Ton!c. We bonded instantly as we are both lovers of music above all things & created two of the most powerful pieces of music I’ve ever been a part of. “Supa Hot Fiya” was made the day we met in a fury of excitement. I consider myself privileged to work alongside such a genius. We agreed that this first jam should go out to the world as a free download. We meet again this coming January to finish the other track we started & I’m sure he shares my enthusiasm for how large that track could be.
We made the music we wanted to make with no consideration for who would like it & when I sent this song around to the peeps it gathered a wide range of support from Zedd, Bingo Players, Will Sparks & Kaskade to Laidback Luke, W&W, Martin Solveig, Tiesto & Showtek.
For anyone paying attention, making music you want to make with people you want to make it with will always result in the best art.
Again, I am lucky to call Deorro not only a collaborator but a friend.
enjoy our sounds.
