U.K based songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Thomas Day, constructs an intoxicating blend of hip hop and soul with a twist of R&B thrown into the pot for good measure.
Strictly classified as a neo-soul/conscious hip hop track, ‘All Mine’ sees Day teaming up yet again with Jod.e, and the two proceed to create absolute magic together. Day’s flow is masterly and Jod.e’s effortlessly cool vocal melodies are proof if any was still needed, that something special happens when these two artists work together. Thomas Dixon also deserves a big shout-out, for his immense saxophone playing on the song.
Thomas Day is driven, devoted, and dedicated to his craft. I get the sense we’ll be hearing a lot more from him in years to come.INDIE TOP 39
We asked Thomas to share few more things about the song:
What does ‘All Mine’ mean to you?
This song to me is all about telling a story of better times that we long to share with someone else, something that I feel a lot of us right now can relate to.
It also speaks a lot about the fear of the unknown that sometimes leaves you wondering, ‘what if…’. In this way, it’s kind of a song urging you to shoot your shot otherwise you never know what might have been.
Aside from the subject matter and meanings behind the song itself, this is also a track I’m really proud of in terms of production, lyrics, flow, and the killer work ethic and talent supplied by both Jod.e and Tom to make the track what it is and really take it to another level!
How did you decide to collaborate with Thomas Dixon and Jod.e?
I’d actually worked with Jod.e previously on one of my earlier releases ‘Breathe’, a bit more of a faster-paced, Kaytranada inspired production, so when I went back to her to ask her to lay some vocals down on this one, I knew she’d do a madness with the track! Her voice is great and everything about her ideas for this just fit the vibe of the song so perfectly for me.
I first reached out to Tom to see if he would be interested in working together on the track after running a session at Loft Music Studios where he was tracking various sax parts for another artist. During the session I knew already I had to try get this guy on a track, his talent is top level and he really knows his instrument. Again, just like with Jod.e, once he started sending me back some ideas I knew this was the missing piece of the track!
Music to me is my escape, my passion, a way to make sense of and overcome my own thoughts, and undoubtedly, one of the main things that bring me happiness in life!THOMAS DAY
Thomas Day Bio:
Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Thomas Day is doing things his own way. Carving out his sound through a D.I.Y, self-taught approach to production, Tom’s music blends together laid-back soulful melodies, dreamy chords and hard-hitting beats into a contemporary R&B fusion that paints a picture of his own unique musical identity.
Hailing from Lincoln, UK, Tom received musical training from a young age, later becoming infatuated with producing his own releases. Taking wide sonic inspiration from the likes of Tom Misch, KAYTRANADA, edbl and FKJ he combines Soul, Hip-Hop, and R&B styles together to create an understated groove within his music that oozes confidence and feeling, willing you to bop along with every beat.
Significant support from BBC Introducing has seen his music receive continual airtime on the programme, leading to multiple appearances at Beyond the Woods Festival (headlined by easy life & Fickle Friends) and reviews from Fresh on The Net (Tom Robinson Band, BBC 6 Music) comparing single, ‘Breathe’, to “Sugababes debut single ‘Overload’ being produced by Tom Misch”.
2020 saw the release of Tom’s biggest project to date ‘No More Normal’, with lead single ‘Wine’ feat. Tee Peters paving the way for Tom’s sonic development.
