Tom Dazing (BE)
One day a young kid from the Old Industrial center of Aalst (Belgium) was destined to discover and create music. At the age of 18 he found his way to the record stores with a desire to become a musician. With a mother who's teaching violin, a grandfather born in Detroit and himself already playing the piano at the ago of 7, he was bound to end up in music someday. He realised that music is the driving force behind his intuition and he evolved towards the production side of things. In 2006 he gave birth to his debut EP on Toys For Boys Records. It didn’t take long before it was discovered and launched into the playlists of several dj’s worldwide. A unique blend of pumping minimal techno with huge influences of oldskool chicago and acidhouse landed him a release on Marco Bailey’s MB Selektions in that same year. The releases kept following on Andre Crom’s Heimatmelodie imprint, Cologne based label Trapez and again MB Selektions where his track “Octopussy” moved the people on the dancefloor all over the globe. By performing live the energy levels on the dancefloor rise and when you feel that lifting desire you know it’s good. 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.
