Conor Smalakis, known by his artist name Tom Bombadil, is a 20 year old trip hop instrumental artist residing in Van Nuys, California. His newest release, "The Nexus", is a journey into finding the meaning and road which he seeks to take in life. Placing together the media he loves around him like an asymmetrically mirrored collage, he seeks to construct a version of himself to reflect properly on. "The Nexus", is heavily influenced by producers such as DJ Okawari, DJ Whitesmith, and Nujabes. This EP is a follow up to his recent EP, "Poisoned Piano", released via Black Chalk.
"The Nexus is a place commonly used in art to be the intermediate area between worlds, also a place between life and death. So when I was making this, and still right now it feels as if I am in between worlds of possibility."- Tom Bombadil.
