I fell in love with this guy's music in 2005 after listening to his Star Wars Special Essential Mix on BBC1. It blew my mind on almost every level. It was the first truly consistent and complete house mix I have ever heard. It was like listening to a concept album with constant beat. An incarnation of Dark Side of the Moon for my generation. On the other hand there is Tom's unique sound; a perfect blend of genres. It's too energetic to call it deep house and also too smooth to say it's techno. Listening to his version of Ian Pooley's 900 Degrees or Kylie's Chocolate you wonder how one could combine sounds so delicate and innocent with deep bass and rocking groove.
Tom's tracks carry the same energy as Carl Sagan shows - they both give me that strange sensation of perfect unity with the universe, the past, present, the future and the cosmos. At least for a little while. To make that moment last a little longer I have prepared a few mixtapes (yes, tapes) filled with Tom's tracks.
