Meet Tomos Emlyn Thomas, 23 years old from Abersoch, North Wales.
“I made the playlist in 2014. At first it was just a small playlist to listen to in my car and to play at pre drinks, after parties or when I chilled with my friends. But it became a bit of addiction and then I started DJing. I feel like it shows the evolution of my music taste and how my sound has changed over the years. I’ve recently started to mix Vinyl so I don’t really add as much music as I use to but nice to see that the followers keep going up week by week and also flattering to have up and coming artists and label owners messaging me on Facebook asking if I can add their material to it.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
That’s tough as my sound and taste has changed a lot over the past few years and I’m pretty flexible when it comes to house, techno and minimal music. But the one I remember from when I was in school that really kicked things off and introduced me to the genre is Arman Van Helden’s Remix of CJ Bolland - Sugar is Sweeter a Classic.
At the moment it’s Artists like Toman, Diego Krause, Juliche Hernandez, Ray Mono, Josh Baker, Traumer and Ben Rau. The list goes on but the one that sticks out at the moment is Archie Hamilton. His releases are quality and he has a lot of music that he plays in his sets that have not been released yet which I’m very excited about.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)
Carl Cox. He’s the face of house and techno and would love to hear about his take on the evolution of house and techno and how club culture and DJing has changed.
What is the best concert you have ever been to?
Thats very tough I’ve been to a lot of music festivals and events all over the world but the one that sticks out is Cocoon in Amnesia, Ibiza that was life changing and a real eye opener for me.
Do you have a favorite quote?
Whatever you are, be a good one.
Do you play any instruments? If not, any you would love to learn?
No but I mix Vinyl and CDJs. Would love to eventually start producing music one day.
Do you have a life slogan?
Be the best you.
What is the most annoying song in the world?
There's a lot out there for example Ylvis - The Fox and PSY - Gangnam Style!
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Music. It’s all about the rhythm!
