Tom Woxom - live in Berlin

l_ca891d7196e84bbf9d91f376f82a49aaYou are going out tonight? Need to set your mood right for the evening?
Do yourself a favour and listen to Tom Woxom this weekend. This deutsche guy knows how to lay down a beat or two to make your booty shake. German precision!

His liveset at the Micromusic Get Together 2009 that happened in Berlin at the same time as Blipfest Europe (and as such, quite largely going under the radar) is pretty damn cool.

Tom Woxom’s first album Kickstart on DHR

dhr-09_thumb-newAnother great release from Da! Heard It, some details:

Da ! Heard It Records is going back to the classics with its ninth production: “Kickstart”, the first album by Tom Woxom, a German composer fascinated by the Amiga 500.
With help from his treasured computer, a couple of keyboards and software, Tom Woxom built himself a puzzling musical universe.
Through ornate beats and powerful heady basses, this album lures the listener into multiple atmospheres.  Tom Woxom dares unusual pairings, as in Sofachips, where he combines a soul voice with an electro melody on the verge of dance music.
