Earlier this year I had the pleasure of interviewing 19-year-old up-and-coming producer Tommy Leas, better know as PLS&TY ('Please And Thank You')
. We talked about his plans for 2015, how he got his start DJing/producing, his biggest musical inspirations and much more.
His latest track is a flip of Nelly Furtado’s 2009 hit “Promiscuous” filled with his own unique future bass take on the track. To get that future bass vibe he implements an huge sub-kick combo, capturing music lovers from the beginning. And the synths... Oh the synths. So many people are in love with them on this track, myself included.
Nelly Furtado - Promiscuous (feat. Timbaland) [PLS&TY Remix]
What was the process of remixing "Promiscuous (feat. Timbaland)"?
Nelly Furtado is a bad bitch. The acapella and vocal track simply guided the way to create what you hear now.
OTB: Will you be expanding into more of a Future Bass style in other releases?
Yes, expect a lot of future bass. But I can’t say that I don’t have a few unreleased trap tunes in the bag as well though.
The synths on the track are amazing. Any advice for up and coming producers on how to create such huge synths?
Layering is the most important thing. Sounds on sounds.
Have you gotten any feedback from other producers on this track?
I actually haven'
t sent it to any other producers yet. I feel that if people like it enough, it will naturally make it's way into the right hands!
Many more old hip/hop and classic song remixes. I've been on a roll with these lately, and they’re super fun to make and even listen to myself.
