The 2020 Breakthrough DJ Competition is now well into Round 2, so we’ve decided to catch up with each of the Top 16 to learn a little more about them 👀We’ll be speaking with all of the Top 16 in the coming days.
We’re kicking things off with Tom Davis who gathered massive support from his friends and followers in Round 1 with the greatest hits on his Mixcloud submission!
Hi Tom, well done for making the Top 16! The panel was impressed with how well you promoted your mix.
So first, introduce yourself?
I’m 18 years old and from Tunbridge Wells. Beside DJing and music I love Go Karting and Formula 1.
Ah, you’d get on with the team at Time Off then! Tell us your favourite genre to play and your favourite track right now?
Tech house! I’d say Real Love by Jess Glynne. I have always liked Jess’ music and this track always has a space in my sets. Six years and I’m still loving it.
Cool, so how long have you been behind the decks? Biggest claim to fame?
4 years… I’ve met a few names; Fatboy Slim, Jax Jones and Jess Glynne.
Nice! Let’s see if any of the others can beat that. We’d like to know who each of you aspire to?
David Penn has to be the one for me. Having been to a couple of his gigs now, I have never found myself bored and love every single moment, something I wish to portray in my sets.
Our judging panel were definitely feeling the energy in your first mix. So, if you could play at any party or venue, where would it be?
Cafe Mambo, Ibiza. A location and sunset like no other.
Great choice Tom, if you win the top place we’ll be sending you and a friend over to Ibiza.
Last question: what’s your opinion on phones on the dancefloor?
No phones allowed! Enjoy the moment!
