Relentless Beats

Artist Spotlight: Thomas Jack

While we may not live in a tropical climate ourselves, Thomas Jack makes sure he brings the tropical climate to us. The Aussie DJ/producer specializes in the summery laid-back style of electronic dance music we know and love as “tropical house.” In fact, he is one of the early pioneers of the sub-genre and helped coin the term, along with artists like Kygo, Lost Frequencies, and Klingande.

Tom’s tracks often feature live instruments, including sax, piano, flute, guitar and more, giving off an emotive, yet relaxed feel. However, in recent years, Tom has changed up his style a bit, exploring other facets of house music, particularly deep house.

He’s performed at countless clubs around the world, so much so that he jokingly referred to himself as “homeless” for a while. While his live sets seem partial to more intimate settings, he’s also landed high-profile festival gigs at CRSSD, Coachella, and Splash House, as well as an Ibiza residency.

With his adventurous live sets, feel-good vibes, and an infectious smile, Thomas Jack is hard to pass up. Be sure to catch him at Shady Park on April 28. Click here to purchase tickets.
