Biographie Born in Montpellier, Tom has started his musical trip in the middle of the 90's, based in South of France. From raves to festivals and clubs residencies, Tom Pooks has become an important local figure, in the region of Montpellier, one of the biggest electronic cities in France. When the DJ started being curious about production, it's along with Joy Kitikonti that he learnt working on his computer. From then, his first productions got released on labels as Scandium, Eukahouse and Serial Records, in a quiet tech-house style. But his DJ's opportunities getting bigger and bigger, Pooks progressively turned into more mentalistic and groovy techno. Regularly playing with Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Josh Wink, to name a few, he found a new way of producing and his tracks got signed to more prestigious labels, like Ovum, Intec and Kompakt. Those labels definitely gave him an international status, allowing him to play everywhere, from South America to Russia and all Europe. Lately, Tom Pooks has been working with Martin Eyerer, doing remixes and productions for his Kling Klong imprint. Last year, 'Pablo Assan' was one of the hottest track for Kompakt crew and was even compiled by Sven Vath for his Cocoon compilation. This year on, a remix for Jamie Mc Hugh's track, Confusion, as well as 'Moon H', released on Brique Rouge labels, invited Pooks in best underground DJ's playlists. Now, one of Tom Pooks's new track, 'Trouble', is coming soon on Ovum, with a special edit version by Josh Wink. All these tracks definitely gave Tom Pooks a strong place belong the international techno scene. Behind the decks, his energy and intelligent way of hypnotizing people create a very unique mood that dancefloors are not about refusing !
