At a time when headline "DJs" shamelessly play pre-programmed - even pre-recorded - sets and the masses mindlessly embrace the charade, Dieselboy
- The Destroyer - stands out as a rare virtuoso of the art and craft of live DJing. His complex, high voltage, take-no-prisoners sets have created legions of loyal die-hard fans around the world. Arguably no other DJ mixes live - on four decks - with more precision, imagination, intensity, energy and finesse. An inspiration for generations of DJs, Dieselboy's longevity and relevance in a mercurial industry is a tribute to his relentless drive to create "amazing" experiences for his fans in their headphones and at his infamously explosive live shows.
Tastemaker to tastemakers and musical-icon, Tommie Sunshine
is renowned for his reputation of being consistently ahead of the curve while still standing firmly in the zeitgeist. Set apart by his iconoclastic productions, he is regarded as one of today's most prolific remixers with well over 300 commissioned remixes to date including Katy Perry, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Donna Summer, Santana & Fall Out Boy, and his original production career spans collaborations with such diverse artists as Junkie XL, Deorro, Arthur Baker, Felix da Housecat, The Partysquad, Rebecca & Fiona, Midnight Magic, Glowinthedark, Peaches, Kid Sister, Bart B More, Shinichi Osawa, The Disco Fries, James Murphy, Live City and many more. Whether as a producer, DJ, artist, dance music historian or social media provocateur Tommie brings a unique enthusiasm to his craft; one that is fueled by his encyclopedic (if not obsessive) knowledge of underground and pop music spanning the last half-century.
