Tom Junior joins the Spotlight Mix series


Fast rising UK House Producer, DJ and label boss Tom Junior released the deep and vibrant ‘Music Takes Me’, out on Simma Black on 11 June.

Tom Junior is a House Music Producer, DJ & Groove Soul Records label boss based in the Midlands. His roots are grounded in growing up listening to Soul, Funk & Disco and later, the mid 90’s US Garage House sound, all of which you can hear in his productions. He has played at Ministry of Sound London and The Egg, taking his talent to the White Isle with Ibiza Rocks, Liquid and other residencies around The Midlands. Tom’ Juniors solo releases have enjoyed several Beatport Top 20s and support from some of the biggest DJs in the world, including Todd Terry, Jamie Jones, and Sam Divine, who played Tom Junior’s previous single ‘All The Blues’ heavily on her KISS FM show and on the Defected Festival live stream.

Proving why he has been hailed as ‘one to watch’, with ‘Music Takes Me’, Tom Junior combines the hypnotic pulsating beats with a sultry female vocal (“I can feel it all over my body and the music takes me”) to produce an addictive cut which was inspired Tom Junior reading an interview with Armand Van Helden in which the celebrated house producer was talking about his greatest remixes and “that 90’s sound” – deep, bass driven and with lots of groove.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
