Tom discovered underground house music as a teenager, which drove him to move to Ibiza shortly after graduating school. The soulful balearic vibes and watching all his old-school heroes spin at the island’s icomnic venues inspired him to follow his ambitions to become a DJ and start building up his vinyl collection.
Soon, he was playing his first litlle shows on the island.
Back in Germany after summer was over, MTV Europe’s music department recognized his talent and hired him. He grew as a music programmer and producer, and toured Europe for MTV as a DJ.
His career really took off when he started with Europe’s biggest youth radio station, WDR L1VE in 2003 where he hosted and curated Germany’s most influential DJ shows for over a decade to come.
Over time, he became friends with the influential players in the game, showcasing their music on his show, touring with them, and even releasing music with them.
From 2010 on, he also hosted the TV show of Germany’s well known dance music magazine, FAZEmag, which secured his standing as a well-known and important figure in the scene.
In 2014, Tom was ready for a change. He moved to Brooklyn and began to establish himself in the U.S. He lived bi-continentally, travelling to Europe for his shows, while curating and hosting nights at New York’s most recognized clubs like Output. After relocating to L.A. in Spring 2016, he is now working on conquering the West Coast with his eclectic, energetic and soulful sound.
