Biography

Location: Pilsen, Czech Republic Czech Republic
Genre: Tech House, Techno

Tomas Drex has been in DJing since the year 1998 when he made his initial attempts to synchronize first beats using at the time simple mixing software. In 2000, he went on to turntables and, after a few months of training, he started playing at minor parties. Organizing his own events was the next logical step – together with a few other enthusiasts, he would liven up the then nearly non-existent West-Bohemian dance scene. It didn’t take long before bookings for major events from all corners of Bohemia started coming in.

In the year 2003, he participated in the DJs LIVC/BASSLINE CUP – western region competition where he was placed second. A year later, he started to experiment with music production, gradually fitting up his home studio.

In the year 2007, he founded the successful Skillz Brothaz project together with a friend and participated in the birth of music info server Undergroundcity.cz.

In 2008, he put aside his turntables and, thanks to a cooperation with a leading Czech DJ shop he co-founded, started using the state-of-the-art digital technologies, notably Ableton+Traktor+MIDI controllers, which allow him to sample in his mixes a great deal of his own production in any form. Nevertheless, he very often plays from CD players as well and this for a simple reason – he enjoys mixing songs manually.

In the year 2011, he launched his new show called Tomas Drex PODCAST which lets you listen to new music releases, information and mix from special guest – every new month.

At the beginning of the year 2013 he founded tech-house label Soul Fly Music Records with his friends, which already has many well-known artists in the catalogue.

Nowadays, he’s had behind him several tracks and remixes released on labels such as: Yin Yang, Yaiza, Patent Skillz, Italo Business, Naked Lunch, Dum A Dum, Egothermia, Turning Wheel, Flat Belly, Hamburg Aufnahmen, Mini Elephant, Little Genius… and others. Tomas Drex is currently working on new tracks and planning on compiling his debut album soon.

You can expect combination of tech-house and techno music. He has played in a host of clubs and places not only in all of the Czech Republic but also in the Netherlands, Germany and Slovakia and has worked alongside numerous Czech as well as foreign famous artists such as: Mauro Picotto, Tomcraft, Alexander Kowalski, Len Faki, Industrialyzer, Space DJz, Marco Zaffarano, DJ Rush, Mario Ranieri, San, Ganez The Terrible, Paul Mac… and others.
