One of South East London’s most closely guarded secrets has recently emerged from the shadows and is set to take the music industry by storm.

TroyBoi is without a doubt one of the top up-and-coming producers in the game right now and it’s quite clear from his composition that his influences are vast indeed. He has already produced tracks with some very high profile artists and his collaboration with Flosstradamus ‘Soundclash’ is arguably one of the biggest anthems in the scene today. His style is undeniably his own, infectious to the ears and beyond stimulating to the mind. He is also one half of the Producer/DJ duo SoundSnobz with one of his best friends, icekream and together they craft the most creative and daring audio paintings you’ll ever listen to. Buckle up and get ready to be taken into the world of TroyBoi because once you are in, you will NEVER want to get out.
You’ve been hinting at dropping new music all over social media, can you tell me what you have in store for your fans?
Well I definitely have in store for you guys an album.
Oh, so not even an EP? A full album?
Yes, a full album. I mean I have always been dropping singles, or dropping three songs at a time. And I have been keeping quiet lately and doing a lot of touring, so I feel like now is the time I should put a body of work together. It is coming out this summer.
This summer for sure, it is almost done.
You have done collabs with the biggest names in EDM from Diplo to Flosstradamus, will we see more of those in the future? Like on this new album of yours?
I mean I just heard an Ekali collab during his set before this so..
Haha yeah. Just know that of course I am going to be making a lot, even with this album, more music. I have way more tracks ready, I’m just doing some fine tuning with them. But definitely a lot of new music coming out very soon.
I remember a few years ago you played one of your first shows in Florida, and years later you already live in Miami. Explain how different it is living in the States versus in the UK.
I mean it’s almost like night and day you know. Going from really overcast weather, for a start, to like 30 degree sunshine every single day. Also the whole Latin culture in Miami, which I love. And the food differences. Like everything! It’s a huge change.
Do you miss anything back home?
Of course! I miss London of course. But then this is almost like a dream, to go from London to the States and especially Miami.
What would you say is your biggest achievement thus far?
I would say my Mantra Tour. Which I just did. Like doing a fully original set, bringing my own stage, lights, dancers, you name it. It was a show, and I put everything into that. And I am still going to go off that tour in the future, but I would say that it is one of my proudest moments thus far.
What is your ultimate goal as an artist?
I don’t have an ultimate goal, but I definitely take each day as it comes. I look to exceed my potential, to achieve my potential. And I think it will take a lot of time to reach an ultimate goal.
Since you have started producing is there anything you noticed that has changed or improved in your style?
Absolutely, I would say I am evolving for sure. I definitely think I am improving, because I always try to do better than my last track. I try to think what I can do to make it sound better. Or things I can do that I haven’t done before. Yet I still use old elements into my newer songs, so I can make my style my style. All in all, yes I am improving and evolving, but also maintaining my own style.
Was there ever anything crazy that’s ever happen to you on tour? For example, fans doing anything crazy?
Well the only crazy thing that happened, on my first Mantra tour was that someone broke into my tour bus. On the final day of my tour too! They stole all my drinks and a lot of valuable things. It was very unfortunate.
