Biography

After his introduction into the scene with his first release on Mindtours, MT06 in 2004, Tom went on to set up and co-run his own label Trimsound with his good friend Leif. After a couple of releases with Trimsound and Mindtours he started releasing on Morris/Audio citysport with the "Trimstyle" records, a series of split ep's with Leif showing off their trademark funked up minimal house style.
In 2005 Tom's "day after yesterday" ep on the French label Logistic Records, showed us a warmer, jazzier side of his production and led onto the Trimsound remix of Minimono's 'ndiki' track on Telegraph, which was a collective effort by Leif, Tom and his brother Joe.
Tom also founded Minordust, the sister label of Trimsound, which is a free netlabel dedicated to providing after-party music. This led to the birth of Ekkis, Tom's project name for his downtempo productions, giving him a chance to experiment without the boundaries and constrictions that are imposed on writing music for the dancefloor.
His music has now spread worldwide and is being played by some of the top names in the scene; Akufen, Richie Hawtin, Daniel Bell, Magda and Zip are just a few dj’s that have been spotted playing Tom's records.
Now represented world wide by the Moon Harbour agency, Bookings Quaas, Tom plans to spend more time DJing and putting his years of hard work in the studio onto the dancefloors of the world. He is becoming well known for his unique sets of 99% original material, and performing the Trimsound Live show with Leif, using live sequencers, bass guitar and percussion to create live remixes and jams of deep and funky minimal house.
