Tom Moroca might be a new name for some, but Thomas is no stranger to the EDM-scene. He has been dj’ing both as a resident DJ in clubs as well as playing big events and parties since the mid-1990s. In his native country Norway, he has played on pretty much everything from small clubs to warming up for Lisa Lashes in a sold-out Trondheim Spektrum, played the worlde-known Quart festival and playing
on a moving fleet through Oslo central on the annual Summerparade for about 70,000 people.
After turning his head to production in 2004 – then under the alias “Adrenaline Dept.” – he has shared posters and lineups with names such as Sean Tyas, Misja Helsloot, Claudia Cazacu, Miss Behavin’, The Tidy Boys, Lisa Lashes, Nick Sentience and Anne Savage – to name a few and has played international venues like Ministry of Sound and The Fridge in London. From 2008 until 2011, he’s also been a studio-engineer for and collaboration-partner of hardtrance stars such as Steve Hill, Amber D, Phil Reynolds and Carl Nicholson.
From 2011 and onward, Tom felt he’s done pretty much what’s to do within the harder side of music and turns back to his roots of house and electro under the new alias “Tom Moroca”. This rapidly emerging alter ego has lately been developing his unique and intricate productions and caught the attention of many of the top labels within electro-house and complextro such as f.ex monolith labels 'Straight Up', 'Big Alliance' and ‘Peak Hour Music‘, which already houses names such as Lazy Rich, Porter Robinson, Zedd, and Afrojack.
His previous release ‘Hello’ reached the beatport electro top20 and was featured on many beatport-charts including Porter Robinson’s and beatport’s own “secret weapons” for February 2012. The latest EP gained support from world stars such as Sean Tyas and Far Too Loud.
Tom’s style of production is recognized by his heavy, bassline-driven sound fused with a variety of sub-genres like dubstep, house and even trance.
If you hear brutal and pumping basslines, a melodic and beautiful breakdown leading in to a complex drop that makes your fist pump – it may very well be a Tom Moroca track you’re listening to!
