Thomas Tuft Intro:
With roots in House, Jazz, Funk, Hip-Hop & a life-long love affair with Disco, Thomas Tuft
has been described as one of the most versatile DJ's of his generation. He is also a gifted and successful producer, an entrepreneur, a talent-spotter and a musical leader.
Thomas broke out of the underground in the early nineties as resident DJ at the Pleasure Dome, a fabled club in the North of England that laid the blueprint for future events like Tribal Gathering and Creamfields
. Guests at the club during Thomas' residency included Carl Cox
, Andy Cato, Nick Warren
and Laurent Garnier
. One highlight of this residency was a hedonistic New Year's Eve party in 1993, sharing a line up with Derrick Carter
, Luke Soloman, Jon Marsh, Angel Moraes , Africa Bambatta, Fabio
and LTJ Bukem
Since then, Thomas has been taking his own unique blend of styles to dance-floors across the globe. From tearing up the main room at Club Friends, Valencia, in front of 8000 Spanish clubbers, to performing a rare guest set in Club Revolution, Holland, alongside Rene Amez, Thomas has left his footprint all over the continent…
Over the years he has also helped shape the musical landscape of his adoptive city, Liverpool. Thomas is a favourite in clubs throughout the city and as Director & the senior house & Nu disco buyer for internationally acclaimed 3B Records, he supplies DJs across the North West with upfront and classic vinyl, while continuing to feed his own insatiable lust for wax...
His live broadcasts on Liverpool radio station Juice FM have become an institution, with guests on the show including Joey Negro
, Greg Wilson
, Mighty Mouse, Kelvin Andrews
, Charles Webster, Guy Williams, Cosmik Boogie, "Little" Louie Vega
, DJ Pierre
, Tiger Stripes & DJ Hell
(to name check but a few). You can catch Thomas on JuiceFM every Friday, 12-2am…
Some of Thomas' regular Liverpool haunts include The Lemon Lounge
, The Magnet
, The Cotton Club, Alma de Cuba, Geisha
, Barfly and Nation
. When London's Soul Heaven
came to town, they tracked down Thomas to warm up for legendary house music vocalist, Robert Owens
. He recently played his fourth year at Award Winning Festival Creamfields
and is currently enjoying a successful residency at uber-cool new bar Santa Morelia…
As well as playing in bars and clubs throughout Liverpool, Thomas has helped create movements in the city all by his own. Troubled Souls
, a night which Thomas founded at Liverpool's Carling Academy
, was a runaway success. Guests included UK talent Richard Earnshaw, Norway legend Rune Linbaek and New York sensation Mr.V
Thomas' influence extends beyond Liverpool too. Across the North West, he is a familiar face at the Mint Club in Leeds, and at Wigan's infamous, all-night rave, Like This Like That. Other venues across the North West to have been graced by Mr. Tuft include U:Soul, Fluorescent, True House and Love Punk in Derby, where he played alongside Kid Massive. At Dean Baker's notorious Bank Holiday Knees Up, Thomas was asked to spin as a representative of esteemed record label Urban Torque and he also warmed up for the legendary Sandy Rivera
It's fair to say that Thomas has an impressive résumé of gigs to speak of and, over the years, he's spun with some of the best in the business. Other than those already mentioned above, some of the legends with whom Thomas has shared a line-up include Alexander O'Neill, Blakkat
, Liquid People, Greg Vickers
, Kelvin Andrews
, DJ Dimitri, Farley `Jackmaster Funk', Paul Kane
, Jo Mills
, The Unabombers
, Steve Angello
and Sebastian Ingrosso
, DJ Meme, Dr. Bob Jones and loads more…
On the production front Thomas has remixed for Peppermint Jam's Runnin' Records, and under his own name produced the underground smash You've Been Warned - a favourite with Darren Emerson
. He is currently working on several new projects and industry leaks to local press have tipped these new beats to be his best yet…
Finally, behind the scenes, Thomas writes a weekly column for EMP magazine and has been a respected talent scout for a top UK record label. Thomas Tuft
is a musical aficionado, a tastemaker and a globetrotting, floor-filling troubled soul.
