The sounds come from C64, Amigas & Ataris and the passion comes from the early computer demoscene fanaticism and extensive performing as part of various IDM and electro-constellations through the years. Born in Hamburg, 1976 he discovered the illegal computer scene in Germany and was quite obsessed with it until the mid-90s when he began producing with Amiga computers and focusing primarly on music. Since 2008 he runs Bleepstreet Records and starts DJing and promoting dancefloor chiptune sets mashed up with sweaty electro and techno around European party nights.

DJ // Friday/Saturday ~22:30
Tomasan lives in Cologne and is part of the [elek´tro:nik mju:zik] crew. He's been deejaying since 2006 and has had gigs all over Europe: from Bucharest to Brighton, Berlin to Rotterdam and Dresden to The Hague. During this time, he's played everywhere from basement clubs and festival tents to a moving train, the rooftop of a mall and the bunker of a medieval castle, as well as local and international radio stations.
His bag is always heavy, as he mostly plays vinyl. Tomasan explores genres from Garage and U.S. House to UK Bass and 2-Step swings. And if the vibe fits – some Rap and Hip Hop too.
