My Story

Known as the ‘sound behind sounds’, Tommy the Sound is the mind behind some of today’s heavyweights in dance land, as well as a coach to many rising talents. His trademark, a piano-laden pop sound, makes the perfect blend with house grooves, progressive vibes and many other styles in electronic dance music. In the studio he has paired up with artists like Sebastiaan Hooft, but he’s also put his own productions to limelight display. In 2015, he decided it was time to reinvent himself as an artist, driven by an all-destroying, groovy tech-house sound. He also started his monthly Follow My Sound Radio show broadcasted on a Dutch radio station

One studio sure-shot after the next was released, ending up on well-respected labels like Dirty Soul, Big & Dirty and as Tommy the Sound on Hed Kandi, Ministry of Sound, SPINNIN, Housesession and so on. The strorie continues and another adventure awaited the talented producer.


After a lot of co-productions Tommy deceided to develope his skills a 'overal' producer because of his wide musical production spectrum.
