Tom Smeyers x Joel Hemmen
Tom Smeyers will bring you a blend of underground house music and melodic detroit techno, taking you back to the raw essence of house and techno. In his crates you will find records from artists such as Glenn Underground, Terence Parker, Romanthony, Mike Huckaby, Ron Trent, Funk D' Void, Reese, Chez Damier, Octave One, Maurizio and Kerri Chandler. Besides being a vinyl collector, you will often find him in his studio tweaking knobs, patching cables, stabbing chords and hugging synths. Tom founded the vinyl-only label SneakerFreaks Music in 2015 and took credit for the first release on the label. His Back & Forth EP received plays by Kerri Chandler, Tom Trago, Bicep, Soul Clap and reached a solid number 2 spot in the house music buzz chart from Decks Records. As a radio show resident for the Brussels based We Bring You collective, you can listen to his mixes on Bruzz FM during the weekly Friday night radio show.
