Toby Nolan is a producer from the Gold Coast (Australia) who makes uplifting electro-house music that can be likened to a mix between Kaytranada, Flume and SG Lewis.
Over the last few months TOBY has been busy working on a bunch of new material that he’s planning to share with us over the coming months, and he’s kicking it all off this week with the summery sounds of new single ‘Aint It’, which features the golden vocal sounds of Sydney singer/songwriter Chelsea Warner.
“I initially started writing this song in mid-2020 during the height of the Covid lockdown. A few months later I decided to share it with Chelsea to see if she’d be interested in doing some vocals for it. I’ve always thought she had an incredible voice and I thought she would be the perfect fit.
Both Chelsea and I were really into the bouncy RnB style at the time with Kaytranada being at the top of the inspiration. After sending each other various versions over Instagram, we eventually landed on the final version by the end of that year.
Unfortunately, following this I had an issue with my hard drive and I lost the majority of its contents, but thankfully I found I had actually backed-up the final mix mp3 file somewhere else, so I did end up with a copy of what we had created.
I unearthed the project again this year and decided I wanted to just get it out into the world. We both loved the track so much and I would probably say it’s my favourite song that I’ve produced so far – fingers crossed it was worth the wait!” – TOBY
