Sometimes The Going Gets A Little Tough (Extended Mix)


DFTD542D2 | 2018-06-08  
A producer, DJ, NTS radio host and label head, Finn has come of age representing Manchester’s underground dance music scene over the last four years. Showing up with a timely debut for Defected that will stop you in your tracks, he’s now turning heads way further afield from the North West. The formula for ‘Sometimes The Going Gets A Little Tough’ is beautifully simple, exposing an intuition beyond the producer’s years. At 135bpm it’s a straight pumper in theory, playing directly into the hands of festival sets over the summer; with its vocal loop and heartfelt lyrics it becomes so much more. Gathering over 2m Spotify streams on its initial release via Tom Lea’s London imprint Local Action, the track also received radio support from the likes of Annie Mac, Skream and Monki and support from DJs as diverse as TQD, Diplo and Martin Garrix. The appeal is universal and the execution is perfect, making this the kind of life affirming record that 2018 needs.
