Profile picture for     Tom Pooks

Born in Montpellier, Tom Pooks has started his musical trip in the middle of the 90's, hanging around a few raves.Then, he got closed to Francesco Farfa & Joy Kitikonti, and started to get interested in producing his own music.His first productions were released on labels as Scandium, Eukahouse and Serial Records, in a quiet tech-house style. In the same time, some big DJ's opportunities came to him and led him to play with international DJ’s (Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Josh Wink, to name a few). Shortly after, the frenchy defined his own sound : a mental, hypnotic and somekind groovy techno.His tracks got signed to reknown labels, like Ovum, Intec and Kompakt. Those labels definitely gave him an international status, allowing him to play everywhere, from South America to Russia and all Europe (including Space Ibiza, Love Parade, Global Gathering, Kazantip,Watergate Berlin...). In 2006, 'Pablo Assan' was one of the hottest track of the year, handled by the whole Kompakt crew and hugely supported by Sven Vath and the Cocoon-addicts. Further on, a big remix of Jamie Mc Hugh's track, ‘Confusion’, as well as 'Moon H', released on Brique Rouge, maintained the French producer in the best underground DJ's playlists, while his latest tracks, Trouble',’Love And Cocaine’ and ‘Step 808’ kept on disturbing the best sound-systems.

As a DJ, Pooks reveals an incredible energy and uses his own special way to hypnotize people.It was time to shout it over, that’s why he decided to record a live session from his appearance at Electromind festival in July 2008. As a result, we have an extraordinary spotlight of what the French techno dude is able to do when he stands in front of you, “lucky people”...
