Featured Artist: Tom Swoon
Tom Swoon was born in 1993 in the small city of Goleniow, Poland. His interest in music started at a young age, and he started his own rock band with a group of friends when he was just 14. At the age of 17, he discovered EDM and was inspired by artists such as Deadmau5 and Daft Punk. Over the next few years, Tom taught himself the art of DJing and gradually improved his skills through constant practice and mixing at a local club. He eventually saved up his earnings and bought a proper DJ setup, and within six months he had created his first bootlegs and unofficial remixes in his makeshift studio. These tracks quickly received support from respected artists such as Nervo, Gareth Emery and Laidback Luke. Swoon’s bootleg of “Till Sunshine” (David Guetta & Avicii vs. Laidback Luke), which was released under his moniker Pixel Cheese, was an instant success and topped over 15 million views on YouTube. With his fresh-sounding remixes and big room approach, Tom was called in for another set of remixes for Nervo, Sultan & Ned Shepard’s single “Army”, and Benny Benassi’s collaboration with John Legend called “Dance The Pain Away.” This past year has been one of long, intense studio sessions for Swoon, and also included live performances around the globe and A-list remixes for artists like Iggy Azalea and Armin Van Buuren. His new single is set for release on Spinnin’ this month, and there are also mutterings of collaborations with Steve Aoki and Showtek as an extensive touring schedule is falling into place.
