"Thommie G (Thomas Gaarthuis) was caught by the enchantment of music since the very beginning. Working as a graphic designer for 16 years, it felt natural to step into the world of sound design. Having a big affinity with tribal music, he combines organic sounds and rhythms to his productions, carrying the listener to places beyond their audio system. His sets start out nice and slow, and rise to intense levels, capturing the audience on a trip through carefully selected sounds and productions.
Although not stuck to a specific genre, his style touches elements of deep, melodic, slow house and tribal. He produces different sounds for different occasions, mostly by himself, sometimes joining forces with other musicians, delivering remixes for artists around the globe.
And with success: his first solo EP titled Athinouk, was released on Brazilian label Tropical Twista Records in May 2016. More releases appeared on Amsterdam based Phat Elephant Recordings and brand new label Whirling Wolf.
His music is played by a number of DJ's, such as Mira, Eelke Kleijn, Oceanvs Orientalis, the notorious Voodoohop collective from Brazil, Urban Cosmonaut Radio collective and more.
