Since moving to Los Angeles five years ago, Thomas Michael, along with fellow DJs Christopher Lawrence and Jason Blakemore took control of a waning dance scene and turned it into one of the most thriving underground scenes in the country. Thomas’ specialties are spinning everything from progressive house to techno and his spontaneity and inherent ability to energize the dance floor regardless of circumstance. Thomas’ popularity quickly developed and his reputation grew and was soon travelling from coast to coast. With over 700 parties and clubs under his belt, he has become an expert at creating the vibe on any dance floor even as far as New Zealand and Australia. Thomas loves playing for a crowd and in return they are always left wanting more.
In 1999 Thomas has performed at some of the largest and most talked about events in the US, such as Cyberfest in San Francisco with over 24, 000 people, The Sun Festival in Denver, Unity in Pittsburgh, Love Festival in San Diego and JuJu Beats in Los Angeles. Thomas has headlined with Carl Cox, Sasha, John Digweed, Chemical Brothers, Crystal Method, Goldie, Way Out West, DJ Rap,
Derrick Carter, Cevin Fisher, DJ Tomcraft, etc.
Not only is Thomas Michael one of the top DJs in the US, he has produced tracks and remixes for Fragrant, FXTC, Phatt Phunk Records and Fuzzy Logic.
On Thomas’ first trip to Melbourne, he has so inspired by the vibe and the crowd at Every Picture Tells a Story, he returned in hopes to capture that same energy for this CD.
Thomas has been working steadily in his studio with fellow artists Pure Nova & DJ Eyal on his first original 12″ release on Fragrant. Also included in his producing skills are remixes done for Impeccable Records, Fuzzy Logik and Phatt Phunk Records. His remix of “rollergirl” for skylab2000 is a crowd pleaser and you can hear it on his progressive house compilation West Coast Vibe – volume one on Phatt Phunk Records. Be prepared to be kept on your feet with his energetic & melodic sets the next time Thomas plays in your city.
