TOM MIDDLETON (Global Communications/Cosmos/Jedi Knights):
Pioneering electronic composer, producer, DJ, remixer, music curator, and festival favourite. A requested DJ for special VIP events for international Royalty and Entrepreneurs, warm up support for Kanye West at The Big Chill, has shared the stage with the likes of Duran Duran, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dog, Busta Rhymes and Mark Ronson. A major label ‘Go To Remixer’ and recently appointed Sound Architect and Music Director for Yotel’s flagship Hotel in Times Square. Involved in many major brand and product launch initiatives in DJ, curator, music director roles. An expert in the areas of pro audio hardware, software and DJ equipment who’s opinion is sought in the design and development of new products. And as a pro audio product design consultant, his influence can be found in almost every DJ booth on earth.
You see, Tom isn’t just a DJ. He’s a scientist; a meticulous technician with a thirst for all musical forms from bass to breakbeats, beatles to baroque.
Researching each and every project with passion, Tom approaches every venture, from productions and remixes to compilations and sound design installations with the attention to detail that’s usually reserved for the likes of architects, surgeons, engineers and head chef’s. His mix CDs such as ‘The Sound Of The Cosmos’, ’3D’ and ‘The Trip 1 & 2′ show true precision and forethought with Tom spending days of preparation studying the structure and key of each track and how they relate to each other. Ultimately, everything that Tom touches has emotional integrity, conveying deep meaning through sound, embellishing feeling for a truly universal connection.
Many believe he was born with these razor sharp skills. Classically trained in piano and cello Tom understood music’s essential rudiments and theory long before he could grow those iconic whiskers on his chin. It’s this adept understanding of the true technicalities of music – how it works, how arrangements compliment each other and how you can convey the strongest message – that’s helped him carve a unique career that’s spanned from his deep space masterpieces with Mark Pritchard as Global Communication and Jedi Knights to the breathtaking debut album ‘Life Tracks’, a homage to ambient and soundtrack music. To this day he refuses to sample other people’s music, preferring instead to create his own sounds using a virtual orchestra and studio session band he’s programmed, and performs every instrument himself.
He’s flirted with chart success with the 2002 club smash ‘Take Me With You’, hosted his own Radio show on Kiss FM pre-empting the Bass and Post Dubstep sound of 2012 by a decade, been resident at Ibiza’s most super of superclubs Manumission and tutored the winning DJ Ryan Shaw in ITV’s cult DJ challenge The Joy Of Decks. As a DJ he’s performed in almost every corner of the globe to crowds as large as 150,000. With his trademark widescreen musical repertoire, he’s spent years championing styles long before they were the norm, brokering the Aphex Twin’s first record deal, signing Matthew Herbert’s debut Wishmountain EP’s, helping Ulrich Schnauss develop his career and hosting Hot Chip and Mylo’s festival debut appearances.
Tom is setting up a new imprint; Sound Of The Cosmos, to showcase the new generation of Deep, Cinematic, Electronica and Bass music talent along with Joe Muggs and Richie Rundle.
