Little is known about mysterious producer Tommy Rawson.
Our first our first acquaintance was the aptly named ”Shy Track” on Red Rack'em’s Smugglers Inn 001 release.
We tried to find out more but the trail got cold pretty quick. It was not until hearing Gilles Peterson playing a version of Hugh Masekela’s ”Don’t Go Lose It baby” on his show that word got around, Tommy Rawson was back.
This particular anthemic track found it’s way to Mats who then started playing it out and every time, in every club no matter where in the world the reaction was same, people completely lost it on the dance floor!
We had but no choice to release the track and luckily enought Tommy must have a sixth sense because at the same time Mats blasted the track at the Local Talk office to convince Tooli shouting ”this is the next big release for Local Talk, I’m telling you!!” another track made it into his mailbox, the soulful house jam Brenda Done Died With No Name. Both tracks ended up on this 12” of course.
Mr Rawson has delivered the goods here, warm, sunsplashed music all the way. A name to watch for this year and probably not mysterious for long.
