Time for Renewal

Hello and a belated Happy New Year to you all – I hope you had an amazing time…and are ready to take on 2014. I can’t believe how fast this year is going.

So far this year I have already completed a guest mix for TranceSound.net and for UCB Beats Radio which will be broadcast shortly and also have another 2 guest mix slots lined up.
I have also uploaded a preview of my new track called ‘Renewal’ with an amazing remix coming soon from a top UK DJ/Producer.

Also, just been booked to play at Dance for Justice in June. This event is a fund-raiser for a UK based charity called Hope for Justice I am really looking forward to this event and being involved with this great charity.

Tickets are not yet on sale, but you can get more info from their facebook page www.facebook.com/danceforjustice

Christmas Guest

Well, there are only a few more days left until Christmas.  I hope you have got all your presents wrapped and ready under the tree.

I am really excited to be the featured guest DJ on EuphoricNation/TranceParadise radio show on Boxing Day ( 26th December ) which will be broadcast live on Club Beats TV and ETN.FM You can follow Euphoric Nation/Trance Paradise on Facebook and Twitter

This has been an amazing year for me. Apart from having my track ( Utopia ) played by some of the top DJ’s of the world, such as Photographer, Above and Beyond, Karl Forde, having the opportunity to host my own radio show on TranceRadio.fm, and playing a set in the home of techno – Detroit, – my wife also had another beautiful baby boy.

It really has been an exciting and fun-filled year, but…next year if going to be even better,  so watch this space.

Already I have a new track ready for release called ‘Renewal’ , a few remix projects in the pipeline plus many more uplifting trance mixes.  All my mixes will all be uploaded to iTunes , Mixcloud , Youtube , and of course my Podcast page so be sure to check them out.

Remember you can get two FREE – Sonar Zone – tracks from 2011 on the Media page of my website.

Well, that’s about it for 2013….but before I go I would like to say special thanks to all the DJ’s/producers ( too many to mention in this blog ) who have supported my mixes/releases and  a massive thanks to everyone who has bought my music and downloaded the free tracks. Your support is much appreciated.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year

Sad News..

Hey everyone,

I just received an email with some sad news. Unfortunately TranceRadio.fm is closing down on 15th December. 

I would like to thank the station owners VIzionaru Kty and Christian DjPhalanx Sprung for hosting my ‘In the Zone’ radio shows and wish them every success in their new ventures.

That means that this week – Sunday 1st December will be the last episode on TranceRadio.fm and I will be looking for a new home for the show. I will be posting details of a new location as soon as possible.

New Arrival

Hi everyone,

Got some exciting personal news for you…

On 5th November at 08.53 my wife gave birth to our third child. A beautiful boy called James Ethan Thomson weighing just under 8lbs – both mother and bay are doing great – not sure about the dad though 🙂

I think he’s going to take after his dad..as he was already spotted wearing headphones.  I managed to get a quick photo as proof 🙂 These ‘headphones’ we actually used in a proper medical hearing test but it looks pretty cool anyway.

Having some time out for #familytime but will be back very soon.

In the meantime, remember you can listen to past episodes of ‘In the Zone’ on Mixcloud , Youtube , and on Podcast
