Read the Toast Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hi, I'm E.J. Gary II, I go by Toast. I'm a Bigroom House, Future House and Bass House Producer/DJ from Houston,TX, USA. I started producing music in 2013 but I've been immersed in dance music culture for a very long time, way before I even produced my first track.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My influences come from many different genres and artist. Being from Houston,Tx I grew up listening to Hip- Hop of course. My favorite producer of all time is Dr. Dre. His sampling techniques and his overall work flow is second to none. I always try to incorporate his style of production and sampling techinques into my tracks. I also listened to alot of Old school Chicago House and Detroit Techno. But the moment i truly fell in love with dance music was the first time I heard Darude's "Sandstorm". At that moment I was hooked on dance music. Darude is still to this day the dance music producer that I look up too. Then a friend took me to a Deadmau5 show, that's when i really knew that this was something I want to do.


What´s new right now?


Right now a Bass House track I released a few months ago titled "ENSVN3" is doing really. It's getting spins in Belgium and lots of online views. I just released a Future House track titled "Set You Free" for free download and it's also doing fairly well. Recently I just signed a Bigroom track titled "Galvanic" with Electric Station Label. It's set to release December 24,2017. It will be available on beatport and other music outlets. I'll give you guys the links to those tracks in a bit. I think you'll enjoy them. I don't have any live shows booked at the moment. I'm really focusing on production right now. I have some really important projects that I want to finish before the end of the year.
