Thomas Koch aka DJ T. has been a vital part of electronic music and club culture for over 20 years. Uniquely accomplished in both influence and scope, he has excelled in every one of his incarnations, DJ, label owner, producer, club operator, publisher and journalist. Having recently closed one chapter of his working life – behind the scenes of Get Physical Music Management – DJ T. is now primed to conquer purely as an artist.
Back in 2002, T. and five of his friends started their own label, Get Physical Music. Within ten single releases, the label had forged an international reputation that took in far beyond its German base, it reach #4 in the annualGroove reader’s poll of 2004, and claimed the coveted ‘Label of The Year 2005’ award from British clubbing bible DJ Mag. Established by six seasoned veterans of electronic music & club culture, the label collective included Patrick Bodmer and Philipp Jung (M.A.N.D.Y.), Walter Merziger & Arno Kammermeier (Booka Shade), and studio owner Peter Hayo. Four years after inking Get Physical, its sister label Kindisch was founded. Dedicated to deepness, Kindisch was T.’s playground and he played accordingly, driving its dancefloor identity, and honing in on what he labelled the ‘minimal booty house sound’.
T.’s famed selector skills took him to even loftier heights in 2010 with Fabric 51, his celebrated instalment for the venerated British mix series, and a fantastically diverse and intricate mix full of sharp twists and unexpected turns, otherworldly soundscapes and deep elegance.
Whether DJing in his hometown of 5 years, Berlin, gigging internationally, T.’s sets are invariably stirring and extraordinary varied. T. is no style fascist, nor is he a slave to trends, he is a bass – and groove-addicted club historian, with a firm grasp of the contemporary. His sets turn 25 years of electronic music history into one finely rendered journey, transforming the links between genres and ages into a truly physical experience, whether he’s capturing the peaktime party spirit, or sending early morning crowds into veritable delirium with one of his famed marathon excursions.
