Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement
Tomy De Clerque
A member of the new generation of Slovenian deejays, Tomy De Clerque grew up in an environment full of promising development in the sphere of electronic dance music. In front of his eyes the local scene has been turning into a globally acknowledged style of techno music in the hands of artists such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani. A natural choice for a guy with talent and ambition was to jump the train – and Tommy DeClerque has road it ever since.
Performing as a deejay since he turned seventeen Tomy DeClerque soon realised that making his own production was essential if he wanted his carrier to really take off. He hooked up with his friend Zox to form the Tomy or Zox duo, and their hard work paid off as their My Desire single received some favourable feedback in Spain, Russia and Mexico. However, it was the Music Makes Me Happy hit single that caught the attention of top artists being remixed by the likes of Mainframe and ATCF, and released on several prestigious compilations, such as Ministry Of Sound, DJ Awards at Pacha Ibiza and Blanco Y Negro Mix. ‘The greatest satisfaction, though, – Tomy says – was when we got set as Essential new tune of the week on Pete Tong’s celebrated Essential selection radio show.’
After parting ways with Fox, Tomy felt that it was time to take a break from a demanding life of producer and performer, before he went on to start his solo career. Searching for genuine underground sound that could revive the authentic feeling of electronic dance music he experienced in his youth Tomy turned to Valentino Kanzyani’s Jesus Loved You label releasing a much praised I Don’t Know. Driven by his passion for teamwork, a lot of his studio work is done in collaboration with his friend F. Sonik. The duo’s first major success was winning VONYC remix competition with a remix of Valentino Kanzyani’s Nueva York, which is also a part of Carl Cox & friends at Space Ibiza 2008 compilation.
He started the 2009 with Umek's nomination as best producer of the 2008. But he is determined to accomplish even more. ‘You’ll hear a lot about me in the future,’ he promises.
