Like many producers, Leeds native Tom Wrankmore took to beatmaking at a young age, saving up from his "awful call-center job" to buy an MPC and start making music. His first productions were strongly influenced by hip-hop, garnering comparisons to artists like Madlib and other LA experimentalists based on his Out of Phase and Made Seasons EPs. Now residing in London, he's broadened his sound palette and has begun mucking about with house and garage, getting a track signed to Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Electric compilation, and most recently dropping the Undivided Whole EP on the somethinksounds label.
