Groove ambassador Tom Burclay from Munich is devoted to music since his childhood. He played trumpet in a big band performing classics like Weather Report`s "Birdland" or Herbie Hancock`s "Chameleon". Thus his musical roots are based on jazz, funk, soul and latin. In 1996, at the age of 16 he got caught by the Hiphop movement, bought himself a mixer & turntables and started spinning records. Above Hiphop, his musical horizon continued growing towards Electronic Music and led him to downbeat, breakbeat, disco and finally afro & disco influenced tech and deep house.
After the millenium, he started DJing in different clubs and bars in Munich, later also in Los Angeles (Blue Monkey Bar (Hollywood), El Cid), Baltimore (Sonar), Berlin (Cookies, Icon) and Geneva (MàD).
To satisfy his daily appetite for fresh music, he's working at Compost Records.
He was hosting the weekly Compost Black Label Sessions radio show until 2019.
