Boomkat Product Review:
Untouchable DJ, Tom Boogizm shells 4 hours of seamless, wayward dancefloor suss in this crucial recording of his all-night set @ La Cheetah, Glasgow in 2019. it is tune-for-tune one of the baddest selections we’ve heard in eons, and surely serves its purpose as a showcase for one of the UK’s most vital - if unsung - record collectors and CDJ alchemists.
Becoming the first lick on Tom’s hugely promising new label, Shotta Tapes, the 4-hour selection testifies to a DJ of serious wingspan with skills to match. Hustling countless cuts ranging from drill instros to dub to rap, South African house, garage, grime, techno and jungle, all helmed in devilish dancehall anthems and obscurities.
Flawless in execution and pace the mix packs more blends than Kenco, and in a rudely dextrous style that’s seen Tom hailed among the UK’s most prized DJs with them that know. As ever he gives the club what it needs, not what it wants; toggling the vibe between classics and rarities - and always with a mind for the dancers - but never one to patronise them, and ever up for chucking a curveball. And it’s there where Tom’s talents and knowledge come into their own - properly distinguishing him from a groundswell of keen-but-green, social media-friendly DJs who, according to Tom’s swivel-fingering blurb, have attempted to “turn the underground into one big episode of Hollyoaks…”
Basically it’s 100% fire and thee very best advert for Tom’s Boogizm event this Friday 17th January, 2020 at The White Hotel with the All Hands On Deck firm, as well as a tease for his imminent new club night with crack DJ squad; Finn, Anz and Jungle Joe.
