Going back to 2010 a Polish DJ/Producer formerly known as Pixel Cheese started his producing and DJ-ing career. Born in 1993, this young gun – now distinctively known as Tom Swoon – has made some major leaps forward in the world that breatheselectronic dance music. Although being quite new to the scene, his productions and remixes would make you believe he’s been doing it for years. It all started when under his previous moniker of ‘Pixel Cheese’, he gained lots of attention thanks to his bootlegs and remixes, most prominently his booty mashup of David Guetta & Avicii vs Laidback Luke – Till Sunshine (Pixel Cheese Bootleg) topping over 12 million youtube views.
His first official remix of Gareth Emery’s single “Tokyo” [Garuda] immediately saw Tom Swoon debut onto the main Beatport Top 100. This was followed by more remixes for trendsetters like Steve Aoki, Kaskade, Tara Mc Donald, Nervo, Alex Gaudino, Topher Jones, assuring Tom Swoon’s continued ascent. Besides this list of A-list DJ’s, international super rock/rap/pop stars are also experiencing first hand the BIG ROOM trademark of a Tom Swoon remix. This resulted in remixes for Linkin Park’s “Burn it Down” [Warner Bros] / Flo Rida and Jennifer Lopez “Sweet Spot” [Atlantic] / Ellie Goulding – Hanging [Polydor] / Drumsound & Bassline Smith ft. Hadouken! – Daylight [New State]. With all of these remixes released in the last 9 months alone and with new remixes for Dido / Steve Aoki / Dimitry Vegas & Like Mike / Angger Dimas / Flo Rida and The Bloody Beetroots being released shortly his reputation in this field leaves little to speculate about.
But remixing is not the only thing in which Tom Swoon excels. With his debut single “Elva” (Ultra) –(receiving early support from the likes of Tiësto) – “Who We Are” feat.Miss Palmer just released and an imminent collaboration with Sandro Silva before his April release of “Not Too Late” feat. Amba Shepard (both on Ultra Records) Tom Swoon is making sure he’s here to stay!
