BIOGRAPHY

With a mother who´s teaching violin, a grandfather born in Detroit and himself already playing the piano at the age of 7, Tom Dazing was bound to discover and create music someday. At the age of 18 he found his way to the local record stores with a desire to become a musician. Soon realising that music is the driving force behind his intuition, he quickly 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 play lists of several DJ´s worldwide. A unique blend of pumping minimal techno with huge influences of old school Chicago and acid house landed him a release on Marco Bailey´s MB Selektions in that same year.

The coming years releases kept following on Andre Crom´s Heimatmelodie imprint, Cologne based label Trapez and again Toys For Boys & MB Selektions where his track "Octopussy" moved people on the dance floor all over the globe. His records try to blend in old school drum elements into a subtle environment of new slinky grooves and raving madness.

After teaming up in the studio with his friend Gols around 2010, his musical journey took another turn. A series of more house orientated productions resulted in signing on labels as Monique Musique, Kina, Circle Music and Fantastic Friends. The amount of tracks released on such short notice is a silent witness of their flowing enthousiasm behind the machines.

By 2011 his list of studio guests had grown so much that these fresh influences lead to the epiphany and birth of his "Thrill Recordings" label. It doesn´t only house his solo productions and remixes, but it also gives local producers a chance to enfold themselves on the label. The sound is broad yet the focus is always put on dirt, rawness and grit. Thrill Recordings provides wide variations and a distinct sound civilized within the borders of House and Techno.

In 2012 he was mainly doing productions for Labyrinth music, Monique Musique, and a series of remixes for various labels & Thrill recordings. Opening new perspectives he joined the "Sweet Trade" crew, a bunch of pirates who are well-known for hosting several booming events in Belgium and Europe.

Because he´s always looking for a way to channel different emotions, he created a techno moniker called Quake. This project quickly got signed by Belgian´s Coincidence Records, and launched a groundbreaking debut EP with a remix from Marcel Fengler.

In order to remove all studio restrictions he decided to pick up the production pace in 2014, with projects like Quake, Noose Brigade and brand new material with Gols. Thrill Recordings forms the perfect hive to experiment and showcase the direction of these various projects.

After quite some time without releasing any vinyl, ´Back In The Daze EP´ ment his comeback on wax for Coincidence Records, brought together with an amazing video. Having a massive amount of unreleased tracks 2015 will definitely highlight more of this guy.
