Gurney-Champion (Thomas Gurney-Champion) is a proud member of the KLEAR agency.

Artist in heart and soul, he mixes the sound of today with the sound of tomorrow. In his sets he blends RnB and Hip Hop with House, UK and Disco music. Nevertheless he also isn’t afraid to surprise the crowd by playing African or Brazilian music, or bringing a percussionist playing along side during his set. He draws
inspiration from the beginning of this millennium, pop music, culture and contemporary art. Always
gives everything he has, whether he plays for fifteen minutes or for three hours. Gurney-Champion is
a prominent figure in the Amsterdam underground club scene, but also regularly gets invited to play in
Berlin, Manchester, Paris, Antwerp and other European cities, or festivals like Lowlands and Down the
Rabbit Hole. Besides the club scene, Gurney-Champion also hosted several radio shows on Red Light
Radio, NTS Radio and Rinse FM.


In his previous role as co-founder and pack leader of the Orthogon Wolf crew, and promoter in
general, he invited artists such as Dj Oneman, Mykki Blanco, IAMNOBODI, Sam Tiba, Brenmar, Dave
Luxe, Jameszoo, Murlo, Eclair Fifi and Falcons over to Amsterdam. Besides being a club Dj, Gurney-
Champion makes music and has a passion for art. From end 2015 Gurney-Champion started a project
in which he works together with various artists and produces music for their art projects. He loves to
approach music in a more abstract manner and to give his own musical interpretation to various art
forms. For example - this short movie he produced the music and partly wrote the concept for.
