Thomas de Raad
As a kid Thomas saw a local band playing on the streets of his hometown. Intrigued by the drummer of this band, he decided he wanted to learn playing the drums and bought his first kit. Turning 13, he exchanged his drum kit for a dj set, and started performing at local bars and events. Once graduated with a BBA and Music Marketing & Management specialism, he started working for Protocol Recordings, doing the day-to-day management for Nicky Romero. After a year he started managing his own acts; French dj and producer Arno Cost and Dutch duo Volt & State within Nicky Romero’s label. In 2016 a new challenge crossed Thomas’ paths. He started working for CTM Publishing as A&R Dance/Pop, guiding composers and producers in the emerging Dance music scene, and extending CTM’s roster within this genre.
CTM Publishing is one of the leading independent music publishers with offices in Hilversum, Brussel, Berlin, Stockholm, London, New York and LA. CTM Publishing has had cuts with Sam Feldt, Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Galantis, Lost Frequencies and many more.
