Vancouver-based Cam Tatham’s journey as Sleepy Tom has been one for the history books. The producer has worked with well-known labels such as Atrak’s Fool’s Gold, Diplo’s Mad Decent, Spinning’ Records and currently MNRK Music Group.

This wasn’t the first time Cam has collabed having earlier worked with Anna Lunoe, Grandtheft and LIGHTS. While his remixes skills have held him in high demand having flipped Zeds Dead, Martin Solveig, Porter Robinson and Dillion Francis amongst others.
On “Real Love”, Sleepy Tom collaborates with Ngaiire, the celebrated PNG indie-soul singer who currently calls Sydney home.
In 2021 she was nominated for an outstanding array of awards including 3 ARIA’s, J Awards(Double J Artist Of The Year), Air Awards (Best Independent Pop Album) & recently performed at the 2022 AFL Grand Final halftime show.

“Real Love” will be released on Sleepy Tom’s forthcoming EP “This Thing Called Life” out on January 20th. It’s a stand out single with Ngaiire’s buttery smooth vocals, combined with Sleepy Tom’s energizing new disco sound, feels like a match made in heaven.
