Tom Curtis: Cutting Up Edibles By Day and Chopping Up Audibles By Night

As much as I would like to take credit for the title of this post, I can't. This title was actually taken from Tom Curtis' Soundcloud page and it was just too good to not use! I got in touch with Tom Curtis and he was kind enough to tell us a few things about himself. 
I am currently producing music under the monikers Tom Farrago and Tectac. I am from Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK., but I currently live in Torquay, South Devon, UK. I have been producing tunes for ten years. 

I'm hugely inspired by films, art and nature. Here are a few of the musical artists I would say inspire me the most: Depth Charge, Rage Against The Machine, Prodigy, Cinematic Orchestra, The Stranglers, People Under The Stairs, The Moody Blues, Handsome Boy Modeling School, DJ Shadow, Goldie, Sigur Ros, Aphex Twin, Portishead, Nirvana, Amon Tobin, Nightmares On Wax, Groove Armada, Louis Armstrong, Gotan Project, balam (Fred White), Mad Professor, Erik Satie, Harry J and The Allstars, Roots Manuva, Radiohead, Edgard Varèse, DJ Spooky, Squarepusher, and The Doors. There are loads more that I can't think of right now. 

I've just recently finished a remix of Rebecca Ferguson's latest single "Glitter and Gold" for Sony RCA. I'm also working on two EP's under both of my names.

Well, I'm looking to work on new remix projects for any artists that are interested.

For those of you that are interested in collaborating with Tom Curtis aka Tom Farrago aka Tectac, he can be reached at the the links below. 

P.S. Tom Curtis also has a clothing line called Farrago Funk Clothing.
