Manchester-born Sam O’Neill, better known as TCTS, is back with another exciting, club-ready production to follow up the success of recent single, ’Jelly’. New single ‘Live For Something’ is now out on Polydor, tapping firmly into the buzz already surrounding his name.
An infectiously upbeat track, ‘Live For Something’ features a 2-step beat, summery piano chords, deep synth melodies and a bouncing bassline underpinning the soulful vocals that lead it. Due for release just ahead of the festival season, ‘Live For Something’ feels like a perfect summer anthem in waiting.
It’s accompanied by an effective, cleverly-shot video. Showcasing the skills of three hip hop dancers, the video features a dance routine routine perfectly choreographed to fit the song, shot with a variety of different lighting and effects.
Touted as an artist to watch by leading dance music press, as a DJ, TCTS has shared line-ups with the likes of Disclousre, Jackmaster, Todd Terje and Duke Dumont, touring alongside Bondax and Chase & Status. He’s also remixed for artists such as Watermat, Haim, Years & Years, Jessie Ware and Snakehips. He’s well-known for his production ability, with his previous EPs coming out on respected labels MTA Records and Greco-Roman, and receiving heavy rotation at BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra. He launched his own label, Make Something, earlier this year with the release of his single ‘Jelly’.
