Lebanese-Australian producer Tobiahs shares his luxurious dance gem called Touch, and gladly answers our QFQs.
What was the first album you bought?
Justice – Cross
Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations and why?
Jai Paul for his innovation, Calvin Harris for his chart success (longevity) as an electronic artist, Daft Punk for their pioneering music & New Order or Giorgio Moroder for making the music I’ve loved all my life.
What are some non-musical inspirations that motivate your music?
Non-music inspiration is my main inspiration. I am heavily inspired by visuals, especially fashion, movie scores, and architecture.
Tell us about your single ’Touch’?
I was looking to explore the pop side of my project a little more. After Blushko sent me the vocal, I knew exactly where I wanted to take it. It is a song that you can listen to in the club, or on your car radio.
What have you got lined up for the rest of the year (2021)?
I’m currently working on my next bunch of singles. I’m looking to release music more consistently than I ever have before.
