For those who might not be familiar with Tom & Collins, describe your sound in three words.

Deep, moving, and contagious.

Why did you guys decide to become a duo instead of performing individually?

It just kind of happened that way, this whole project has been coming to us spontaneously and we’ve been taking it seriously day by day. We played together for the first time in a club in Mexico City just for fun and ended up having a lot of chemistry.

What made you guys want to play at L Festival this year?

It’s really cool to have been invited. We are very proud of our Latin roots and glad that electronic music is part of this year’s menu.

What has been your most memorable show to date?

This is a question that we get a lot and it’s the one that we struggle with because it’s hard to pick one. We try to enjoy every show and if we get to make a connection with the people and make them have a good time, that’s what makes a great show for us.

What does the rest of 2015 hold for you?

A lot of music making and a lot of traveling, which is always great. We will be releasing our next single alongside some new remixes that we are very excited about. We are very excited to have the opportunity to perform in Las Vegas, Amsterdam (ADE), São Paulo (EDC), LFestival (LA) and many other places, so we will enjoy every bit of it taking out music to wherever we can.
