By patiently building a reputation, Tom Budden has carved out an enviable position as an in-demand DJ, producer, label owner and promoter.
A lynchpin of the UK South Coast’s phenomenally productive music mafia, which sees the region produce a disproportionate number of the UK’s highest achievers, Tom’s deep, rolling tech-house sounds are seeing his name regularly mentioned in the same breath as the guys who were his early inspirations, touring with the likes of James Zabiela and Nic Fanciulli.
Tom’s dedication to House Music also comes y way of his prolific imprint ALiVE Recordings, which he founded in 2008. ALiVE has a back catalogue of artists which include Leftwing & Kody, Shadow Child, Shall Ocin, Waifs & Strays, Yousef, Cera Alba and many others of a similar calibre, and this September sees Tom himself returning for his fortieth appearance on the label. His upcoming EP, of which we present an exclusive free download here today, is entitled “Losing Control” and also features Oli Furness on remix duties.
“Losing Control” is available 2 September on ALiVE Recordings
