"It's exciting to explore new countries and meet new people. I have heard a lot about the Indian EDM and dance music scene, so I want to have a look myself. I have been to India once and I had a great time, so I'm happy to be back," he says.

Speaking about his genre of music, he says, "The music I do reflects my own personal favourites, my kind of sounds and a distinct way of producing. I am a huge fan of punchy drums and pumping basslines in combination with melodic and epic synth sounds; I love to do those long and huge breakdown sections where the energy builds over a long time. I am a fan of the overall vibe of House and progressive house. I am also into Tech and minimal stuff and I integrate some elements of these styles as well.  I love big percussion sounds,"
he adds.

He recently worked on a new track with Dirty South in his studio in Los Angeles. "We are in the middle of finishing it now. I am very excited also about my upcoming release on Axtone, called Sing2Me. Apart from that, I am currently working on some new ideas and there might be a new remix coming soon," he informs.
Having played at many gigs across the world, Thomas shares an anecdote about one particular festival that he will always remember. "It was when I was playing the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas this summer. It was my first performance on such a huge stage in front of such a huge crowd; it was an amazing crowd. I was so excited and I had a lot of fun."

DJing is a profession which seems awesome from the outside, but is a lot of hard work to get to the top. Thomas suggests that aspiring DJs need to find their own way and style of DJing. "Take your time to get to know your equipment and how to use it to get the best out of it. Always read the crowds and try to give them the best time of their life. And don't forget to enjoy it yourself," he
