Selected by international "future music" journal URB MAGAZINE as one club musics'"NEXT 100" DJ TOM THUMP is receiving long deserved recognition for his joyful exploration, programming and presentation of all that has been worthwhile in creative club culture for most of the past 2 decades.

He has achieved a semi-cult status on the West Coast and around the world for his underground eclectic/ dancefloor jazz/hip hop/jazzy house/and atmospheric drum & bass mix tapes (and now CD's ). Including his latest "LET'S LISTEN TO SOME MUSIC!". As one of the driving forces behind the legendary rare groove/nu jazz GROOVE MERCHANT RECORDS (of Ubiquity Records fame) , from 1995 to 2002 Tom honed his knowledge and his own brand of innovative, emotionally charged "left field" style.
