Inside the new edition is a 10-page exclusive in-depth interview and shoot with TroyBoi. Here's a snippet.
Interview & Photography: Sarah J. Edwards
I usually stir from my sleep with a natural alarm clock of birds singing, dogs barking and speeding traffic. My daily pre-breakfast metaphorical nutrition begins with a 30 minute fix for all senses; water and a full workout with a constantly refreshed soundtrack to get my creative energy flowing. Uncovering music often takes me on longtail journey around SoundCloud and Undrtone and it was doing this a few months back I landed on SoundSnobz and subsequently TroyBoi - South London’s own Music Manipulation Specialist.
Troy is like a molecular chef of music, each track created is a melting pot of genres; trap, hip hop lean, soundscapes, sharp vocal samples with an extraordinary ability to deliver big bass. Watching Troy’s career rapidly gain momentum over the past several months and seeing the amount of excitement his music gives people internationally is a real treat.
Jim Beanz and Diplo are early adopters, he’s collaborated with Flosstradamus, remixed Jack Ü’s Take ü, Father, ILoveMakonnen and Key!’s Look at Wrist and gathered millions of listens. A champion of sound, put his music in a time capsule and it would no doubt give you a good idea of how 2015 looks.
So, it’s up the hidden rooms at Soho’s L’Escargot, we meet for the first time. Troy is laid-back, maintains a refreshingly positive attitude and a wicked sense of humour – soundtracking our shoot with fits of the giggles.
