With a mother who’s teaching music and himself already playing the piano at the ago of 7, he was bound to end up in music someday.
Emerging from the old industrial center of Belgium (Aalst), young producer Tom Dazing got hooked on music at an early age. Born in 1985 on the musical axis of Ghent-Brussels, and with music strengthening its grip on him, he soon found his way to the record stores at the age of 18, setting of on becoming a reputed dj but soon evolving towards the production side of things. Tom developes an interest in a wide spectrum of music styles, but consumed by the strength, power and instinctive structure of techno, that music would control him up to now.
In 2006 gave birth to his debut EP on Toys For Boys records that immeditately blasted its way into the playlist of several a-list dj’s worldwide. His unique blend of bumping minimal techno with huge influences of oldskool chicago and acidhouse landed him a release on Marco Bailey’s MB Selektions in that same year. Soon followed by releases on Andre Crom’s Heimatmelodie imprint, PsyTox’ label Coincidence, and again MB Selektions where his track “Octopussy” scorched the feet of dancefloor punters all over the globe. He also performs his material live enabling him to turn up the energy levels a notch further. In his records he tries to blend in old school drum elements into a subtle environment of new slinky grooves and all-out raving madnesshave, which attracted the attention of top DJs.
His production skills, time shifting rhythm patterns and funky complex melody’s are very highly appreciated by the croud and promotors.
He received much acclaimed support from people like Richie Hawtin, Josh Wink, Karotte, Marco Bailey, Monika Kruse, Gabriel Ananda, Seth Troxler, Len Faki, Dominik Eulberg, Skoozbot, Alexi Delano & Tim Xavier,… and played dj and livesets in venues and events such as Kozzmozz, Ultra, Heimatmelodie, Forbidden Fruit, Déclic, MinimaLicious, SeSSioN and performed in clubs & venues like Tresor (Berlin), U60311 (Frankfurt), Fuse (Brussels), Vooruit (Ghent), Kiosk Club (Lille), Aquarium (London), Club Versteck (Dortmund), Silo & Decadance.
He has recently picked up a montly residency in Frankfurt’s U60311 and he’s maintaining his local position on the Thriller parties in Ghent. Expect future releases on Trapez, Toysforboys and a series of remixes on various labels.
