Tommy Four Seven has had a busy year. Currently based in Berlin, the UK producer has been touring clubs and festivals in support of Veer, his latest LP recently released via his 47 imprint. Comprised of 10 raw experimentalist tracks, the album captures the techno specialist in industrial mode, crossing cold broken beats with harsh noisy atmospherics – the kind of thing that sounds like it was designed to be played in our Room Two space. We’re set to see this first hand when he joins a hard-hitting bill for our 20th birthday celebrations next weekend. He put together a typically merciless mix for us ahead of his appearance, showcasing his aptitude for serving up heavyweight dancefloor damage.

Tommy Four Seven – 2084 (Rhys Fulber Remix)
What have you been up to since Veer dropped?
I’ve been busy racking up some incredible shows in as many places as possible. In between, I’ve been prepping future releases for my label, 47, including the Veer Remixed LP, which drops in November.
Was there a theme you were going for on the mix?
It’s pretty much a full-on club set condensed into one hour. The opening track by Shlømo sets the scene with some spoken word pulled straight out of a sci-fi film. I finish the set with Rhys Fulber’s remix of 2084, taken from my album, Veer – excuse the shameless plug! I really like the cinematic direction he took it in.
Where did you source the records from?
It’s a mixture of buying online, promos and some upfront tuneage from friends.
What was the main inspiration behind Veer?
I think it came from watching far too many sci-fi movies whilst on the road. Netflix has done a lot to mitigate in-flight boredom!
This is your debut with us. What are you most looking forward to about visiting the club on our birthday month?
Just to play at this historic club in my original hometown is an honour. Also, to rip the hell out of the system alongside Paula and IMOGEN. It’s gonna get spicy!
