"Looking forward to bringing the Sound of the Cosmos to Diani Beach

With all the energy of a Festival set...many sonic surprises and a
journey into sound you won't forget...it's going to be rocking!"

Come and say hi Twitter.com/djtommiddleton

Pioneering electronic composer, producer, DJ, remixer, music curator,
and festival favourite, has shared the stage with the likes of Duran
Duran, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dog, Busta Rhymes and Mark Ronson. Warmed up
the main stage for Kanye Wests UK Festival Debut. A major label 'Go To
Remixer' and recently appointed Sound Architect and Music Director for
Yotel's flagship Hotel in Times Square. Involved in many major brand
and product launch initiatives in DJ, curator, music director roles.
An expert in the areas of pro audio hardware, software and DJ
equipment who's opinion is sought in the design and development of new
products. And as a pro audio product design consultant, his influence
can be found in almost every DJ booth on earth.

You see, Tom isn't just a DJ. He's a scientist; a meticulous
technician with a thirst for all musical forms from bass to
breakbeats, beatles to baroque.
Researching each and every project with passion, Tom approaches every
venture, from productions and remixes to compilations and sound design
installations with the attention to detail that's usually reserved for
the likes of architects, surgeons, engineers and head chef's. His mix
CDs such as 'The Sound Of The Cosmos', '3D' and 'The Trip 1 & 2' show
true precision and forethought with Tom spending days of preparation
studying the structure and key of each track and how they relate to
each other. Ultimately, everything that Tom touches has emotional
integrity, conveying deep meaning through sound, embellishing feeling
for a truly universal connection.

Many believe he was born with these razor sharp skills. Classically
trained in piano and cello Tom understood music's essential rudiments
and theory long before he could grow those iconic whiskers on his
chin. It's this adept understanding of the true technicalities of
music – how it works, how arrangements compliment each other and how
you can convey the strongest message – that's helped him carve a
unique career that's spanned from his deep space masterpieces with
Mark Pritchard as Global Communication and Jedi Knights to the
breathtaking debut album 'Life Tracks', a homage to ambient and
soundtrack music. To this day he refuses to sample other people's
music, preferring instead to create his own sounds using a virtual
orchestra and studio session band he’s programmed, and performs every
instrument himself.

He's flirted with chart success with the 2002 club smash 'Take Me With
You', hosted his own Radio show on Kiss FM pre-empting the Bass and
Post Dubstep sound of 2012 by a decade, been resident at Ibiza's most
super of superclubs Manumission and tutored the winning DJ Ryan Shaw
in ITV's cult DJ challenge The Joy Of Decks. As a DJ he's performed in
almost every corner of the globe to crowds as large as 150,000. With
his trademark widescreen musical repertoire, he's spent years
championing styles long before they were the norm, brokering the Aphex
Twin's first record deal, signing Matthew Herbert's debut Wishmountain
EP's, helping Ulrich Schnauss develop his career and hosting Hot Chip
and Mylo's festival debut appearances.

Tom is setting up a new imprint; Sound Of The Cosmos, to showcase the
new generation of Deep, Cinematic, Electronica and Bass music talent
along with Joe Muggs and Richie Rundle.
Expect new releases and curated events from Q2 2012.

DJ Miss Nine has been a major presence on the dance scene for quite some years now. With her eclectic taste in music, ranging from energetic grooves with plenty of vocals to a deeper, progressive sound, Miss
Nine turns heads and moves feet wherever she performs.

Amsterdam //
Miss Nine was born in Germany as Kristin Schrot and at the age of 16, she started her career – not as a DJ, but as a model. Shortly thereafter, she secured a worldwide contract with Elite Model Management .
After moving to Amsterdam , she discovered the art of DJ’ing and her passion for music eventually led her become a DJ as well. In 2003, only a few months after touching the decks for the first time, she
became a resident DJ at the legendary Motion parties where she evolved as an artist and DJ while playing alongside masters such as John Digweed, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren and James Zabiela .
2003 was also the year that Miss Nine took to the decks as the youngest artist at the 10th edition of Dance Valley (renowned Dutch Dance Festival). At the end of 2005, Miss Nine was then asked by
Grammy Award winning DJ duo, Deep Dish to join Bullitt Bookings , the reputable agency of A-list DJs. This allowed Miss Nine to enter the forefront of the international DJ scene for the first time.

925 Digital //
In 2008, Miss Nine started her own record label called 925 Digital . Having spent so much time in the dance scene, she realized that there were too many excellent progressive-house tracks that didn’t get the
release and the attention that they deserved. 925 Digital was created in order to ensure that this didn’t happen and bring progressive house, and the artists behind it, to prominence. Miss Nine performs all
around the globe, spinning at clubs such as Privilege in Ibiza , Avalon in Los Angeles , Warung in Brazil , the Ministry of Sound in London and several Pacha’s around the world. She has also graced
the main stage of the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, joining a line-up of, among others, Tiësto and David Guetta .

Discography //
Miss Nine was the first female DJ to mix a compilation for Washington-based Yoshitoshi Recordings , the world-renowned leader in progressive and big-room house music. The highly anticipated Yoshitoshi
Ibiza : Mixed by Miss Nine was released in September 2006 and made it to the number 1 spot on iTunes in the United States . In June of 2008 Miss Nine also released an album on the world famous Armada
label: Dancefloor Sessions. Over the last few years her studio work has featured on renowned labels such as Spinnin’, Garuda and Blackhole Recordings , whilst having remixed artists as varied as Timo
Garcia, Eelke Kleijn, Solarstone, David Puentez, Sultan and Gareth Emery .

Nine Sessions //
Nine Sessions is Miss Nine’s monthly radio show which is broadcasted in more than 35 countries, including DI.fm, Proton, Frisky and Dance Paradise . Since January 2011, Nine Sessions is also
available as a podcast on iTunes. During this one-hour show, Miss Nine shares her favourite tracks of the moment with her listeners.

Campaigns //
In 2010, Miss Nine became the ambassador of the revolutionary Levi’s® Curve ID line. To draw even more attention to this new line, she mixed the compilation album Levi’s® Curve ID . In addition to
spinning at numerous events, which are actively being promoted in Europe and Asia , Miss Nine also hosted Levi’s® presents Miss Nine in the Supperclub during the Amsterdam Dance Event in October
of 2010. Miss Nine is also now the face of Pioneer for their new Pioneer 350 series, turntables that are meant for amateur DJs. As part of a European-wide promotional campaign, video clips in which Miss
Nine is demonstrating these turntables are being televised on MTV.
