Tom Zanetti’s 2021 single ‘Didn’t Know’ became his biggest hit to date, peaking at #14 as it spent the majority of the summer flying high in the Top 20. It became a Gold-certified favourite, adding to previous hits including ‘You Want Me’ (Platinum), ‘Flight Mode’, ‘More & More’ and ‘Darlin’ (all Silver
‘Slow Down’ is Tom’s radical reinvention of Bobby V’s classic R&B slow jam which reached #4 back in 2005. After adding his original boisterous bars with a bombastic bass attack and accelerating the tempo, Tom Zanetti has given an old classic a modern touch that will introduce it to a whole new audience. The original has a special place in Tom’s heart, as there was always R&B playing in the house when he was growing up. The video was directed by Capone and filmed in Farringdon.
Tom says, “Bobby’s original version is a total classic, so to be part of an update that brings it to a new generation is a huge deal for me. Being able to modernise classic tunes and breathe new fresh air into songs that people maybe haven’t even heard is a real privilege.”
Based in Leeds, Tom Zanetti has a broad skillset – singer, songwriter, MC, producer and promoter – but his goal is simple: to bring people together 24/7. After all, nightlife doesn’t sleep. His first guiding passion in music was bassline, and inspired by Eminem and Biggie Smalls, he started rapping over the genre’s frenetic rhythms. A DIY CDR release was passed around the local scene, but Tom didn’t realise the following he was gaining until he heard his voice flowing from the speakers of a market stall selling bootleg mix CDs. It turned out his mixes had been their biggest seller for months.
