DJ Tomas (Umoja Soundsystem/Voltage Music) is a man of many aliases – his most famous being Double Identity, his producer title. This makes sense since he’s a double Gemini who’s played drums in noise rock bands, DJ’ed for over 15 years, written for Urb and XLR8R magazine, and hosted radio shows since the late-80s. The Bay Area native cut his teeth as a reggae radio DJ in high school and also at college station KXLU in LA. He began spinning clubs in 1990 and co-founded (with DJ Daz) the Umoja Soundsystem, a six-person multicultural, multi-genre music crew. While primarily a reggae sound, Umoja also plays hip-hop, soul, electronic, house, broken beat, Latin and Afrobeat – a unity of cultures and ethnicities through music. On the production side, DJ Tomas is a drummer who’s recorded as Double Identity for his own Voltage Music label, as well as others. He has five nujazz/broken beat-style singles out as Double Identity, and tracks floating around the internet under his dub/dubstep alter ego Dub I.D. Look for the debut Double Identity album in spring ’08. His current monthly residency is La Bodega, at Otis in SF and he cohosts the Friday Night Session, 10 p.m. Fridays on KUSF 90.3 FM.
