[House] Thomas Jack – Symphony

Thomas Jack
Symphony (Original Mix)

Sydney, Australia’s 20 year old electronic boy wonder Thomas Jack is once again back with a brand new original “Symphony”, after previously authoring a string of viral remixes for the likes of Of Monsters, Adrian Lux and Men and Men at Work over the last few months. Much like previous single “The Final Speech” Thomas Jack has turned to saxophone player Adrian Symes to lay down a hauntingly sexy hook over a gritty four-to-the-floor kick-clap pattern, and a new display of his deeper side using dark, arpeggiated synth stabs to bridge those elements together. Of course the young talent didn’t skimp on what is becoming a signature staple in his production diet either, with the addition of a well placed pan-flute and another classic vocal, this time from JFK. Thomas Jack is certainly asserting himself as a rising player inside of house communities not just in his home of Australia, but stateside as well, and with a first North American tour kicking into gear tomorrow (see dates below), we thought it was the perfect time to gift you his latest tune as a free download. Grab it above.

[Electronic Soul] Thomas Jack ft. Adrian Symes – The Final Speech

The Final Speech (Original Mix)
Thomas Jack ft. Adrian Symes

20 year old Australian wunderkind Thomas Jack has just gifted us with an electronic track sounding more mature and instrumentally textured than his age would suggest, with “The Final Speech” featuring sax player Adrian Symes. It is a melodically driven effort beginning with a laid back, and slowed up four-to-the-floor drum pattern, before a lovely piano and Symes’ subdued alto saxophone carries “The Final Speech” through a building break and vocal snippet, before shedding a layer and ratcheting up the sexiness tenfold for the second half of the composition. Bolstering “The Final Speech” are a few house and garage elements; and while the song is better as listening music than dance, there is no doubt that if this one found its way onto a floor there would no doubt be more than a few bystanders hypnotically swaying away to the beat. Thomas Jack has a sound and taste which seems like a perfect fit for the current wave of young electronic producers, and like most of them, he is giving away music for the price of… on the house. So listen above to Thomas Jack’s “The Final Speech” and grab a free download while you’re at it.
