Amsterdam based DJ Tommaso is giving us Monday motivation with this weeks mix! Co-owner of Diserpiero Records with Tiorted and Max Lane, they are establishing their own imprint with a fresh wave of music of classic sounds and modern grooves! We caught up with the him to find out more about his sound and surviving lockdown...
What style of mix have you gone for?
I decided to do a groovy and dubby set, that tries to enroll you in the journey!
What DJs have inspired your sound?
Jamie Jones for sure is one DJ I never get bored of, always something new from his sets. Toman, DeMarzo and Traumer are also a big source of inspiration, they're sound really inspires me when making music.
What’s your favourite part of the mix?
My favourite part is making the mix, I really love this! The track selection for me comes from an empty folder, some vibes in my mind and I start to go with the flow...
How has the pandemic affected you?
For me this long period was actually positive musically speaking, I had a lot of time to spend on my productions and crafting my own sound without losing my job, so was all worth it.
Has your sound changed at all during lockdown?
Yes definitely, it has changed a lot because I got the opportunity to discover my own imprint and what sounds I like more with a nice workflow.
What do you think clubbing will look like in 2021?
I hope that clubs are going to be open again, but I see it as a very hard thing at this point. I hope everything is going to be back to normal and stop paralysing the world with this pandemic stuff!
What’s your top tip for surviving lockdown?
My top tip is always staying blessed for what you have and going for more. Set your targets and never forget there are going to be harder times.
Do you have any 2021 goals you are happy to share?
My goal for 2021 is making the most out of it! Producing, networking, running the label, I try to always grow in this aspect and I try to project myself in a few years, having some time limit while doing your projects and enjoying the process!
