Musical wunderkind Black Summer, otherwise known as Rhys Toms, is back with a luminescent new song Sadness, featuring Bahamian vocalist Chloe Campbell, set for release on March 23.  The perfect follow-up to 2017’s Young Like Me, which has racked up over three million streams across multiple platforms, Sadness is an exciting offering from the accomplished producer who is still yet to turn 15 years old.  Black Summer has also dropped a truly spectacular video to accompany Sadness, directed by Tim Maxx.

It’s been a wild ride for Rhys since he was Unearthed by triple j at the tender age of 11 as one of the country’s most exciting young producers.  Young Like Me, his most successful release to date, was debuted on national television across Channel 9’s Children’s Hospital Telethon and attracted a lot of international attention after being added to high rotation on triple j, and in its wake, Black Summer appeared at Groovin’ The Moo.  Now still only 14 years old, he has a fantastic attitude towards the industry and is thrilled to be working towards some live performances for 2018, saying,

“I still can’t believe that I’m doing what I’m doing now – it is literally a dream come true.  I’m so grateful for the opportunity triple j gave me to get my music out there, they really gave me the confidence to do what I love!  Over the years I have learnt so much about music theory and the industry… I love anything to do with computers, from programming video games to make my own music.  I love to travel and see new parts of the world and performing live is one of my favourite things to do!” – Black Summer.

Alan Walker:

I like Alan Walker because the collaborations he has done so far have been awesome and great fun to listen to. I like the chords he uses in his tracks, the way he plays his chords are in an offbeat kind of way which I find really interesting. I listen to his music when I’m doing homework and working on assignments because it’s upbeat and keeps me going.

Misogi:

Misogi is one of my favourite electronic acts at the moment, he started making music at a young age and continues to inspire me now and the music that I make. I remember listening to Misogi over and over in my headphones at my school when I was going through a very hard time. His music really cheered me up and inspired me to keep making music.

Panda Eyes:

Panda eyes make some really hardcore dubstep music but also has this way of incorporating melodic moments between the parts and I think that’s really unique and really hard to do in that genre.    I listen to his music when I’m feeling hyped up and energetic, I also listen to him when I”m looking for inspiration for making my own bangers.

Lil Peep:

I really enjoy listening to Lil Peep because he had a really cool grungy sound. Before I discovered electronic music I was into grungy music like Tool and Nirvana and his voice kind of reminds me of them. I really like how he mixes guitar with trap beats and the way he mixes his rapping with singing. I listen to his music if I might be feeling a bit down. I was very sad when he passed away.

Martin Garrix:

I have been listening to his music ever since his track ‘Animals’ came out. I have always loved his music and how he is not afraid to try new things. I like how he is always changing his sound, he’s never always the same. I used to watch how he made his tracks on Youtube as I used the same software as him at the time. I felt like I learnt a lot from watching him. He was one of the first electronic artists that I discovered and inspired me a lot.
