Tom Vek Recommends

The producer talks to us about all of his favourite things as he returns with his long-awaited new album, 'Leisure Seizure'

Yes, we know he's back. Yes, we were excited to hear it too. There's probably no use then, in asking you to calm down before Tom Vek gets set to release 'Aroused' from his long-awaited album Leisure Seizure. In the signature nonchalance which had devotees clamouring for more material over a lengthy six-year period, 'Aroused' is frenetic and focussed in equal measure. The video for it is smoking hot, too (scroll down to unveil a mediocre pun). Whilst attractive video ornaments are always a plus, we wanted to hear a little more from the other 'TV' that everyone is watching right now...
