London based Dj/Producer Tomoki Tamura. Tomoki is probably one of the most successful japanease djs in the world. In 2004, he moved to London where he has continued to rock the floor in top venues such as Fabric,Ministry of sound and Plastic people to name but a few. He was resident dj at london’s legendary club The END/AKA from 2007 until it finally closed its doors in 2009.
His own party HOLIC has quickly become one of the most important events in london, every month bringing a wide range of quality house,techno djs from around the world. His selection of guest djs are unique and always gather attention from the london club scene’s main players. Holic is not only for London, his party has got a permanent residency at Japan’s top club – Womb which is now recognized as one of the best clubs on the planet. He is the main underground music ambassador between London and Japan.
Tomoki’s trademark fusion of deep, tech, electro, minimal and soulful influences has won him many admirers and he was the first ever Japanese DJ on Ministry of Sound Radio while also holding down a weekly slot on House FM. Simultaneously tough and soulful, dark and uplifting, – his style retains more than enough depth and technique to satisfy the fussiest of house-heads without losing the sort of funk and groove that keeps the dance floor rammed and rocking.
In 2008 his debut EP Tomoki&nono/Voices&3years(Four:Twenty) has become No 1 Chart on deep house of world biggest music store Beatport. And after this release Satoshi Tomiie has selected his production skills,and he has signed 2 releases as Tomoki&nono from Saw recordings. His track Lark was used for one of the most famous Mix CD’s of recent times, Satoshi Tomiie’s 3D(Renaissance).
