Indonesian DJ-producer Tomatow combines his danceable, tropical house style with soft, emotional songwriting on his latest collaborative track with Jfarr, “Meant To Say.” “I don’t want to see you go, you know I’ll always hold on,” LA singer-songwriter Jfarr sings, seemingly in a plea to his lover. The expressive vocal breakdown leads into a powerful dancehall-infused drop with chopped-up vocals and plucky synth chords.
Tomatow’s unique style has made him a well-known innovator of the dance pop genre. Although many of his earlier tracks explored different styles, in the last year Tomatow has dialed-in on his organic, tropical-inspired sound. It’s a switch that seems to have paid off, with releases like “Bandaid,” (also with Jfarr) reaching well over 600,000 plays on Spotify. With “Meant To Say,” Tomatow and Jfarr hope to replicate their previous successes together.
