ARIA DJ Of The Week: Tom Evans

Get the know the Melbourne DJ.

Tom Evans is the talented local jock from Melbourne, Australia.

Tom has been masquerading in a bloated stupor in a Machiavellian masterstroke for the best part of ten years, disguising his understated technical genius by boozing until the wee hours of the morning with punters and promoters alike, endearing himself to the masses, propagating a cult following and subsequently performing at most of the local clubs, festivals, backwater bars and bikie haunts in Melbourne.

Throughout his stellar turntable tenure, his unprecedented talent and skill behind the decks, and eclectic track selection has led him to play at every major electronic music festival to grace the state of Victoria, as well as being a feature at the hugely successful Likes Of You parties. He has been on the bill alongside every international known to man and a resident at every club in Melbourne that one would desire to have.

Tom can play a wide variety of genres accommodating to needs and desires of promoters and venue owners, with proficiencies in House, Deep House & Techno. With a preference and appreciation for more melodic sounds


Tom has had originals and remixes across some of the finest labels in House music with his latest release 'About A Place' with Tim Light, on his own imprint Valiant Records. 'About A Place' reached #1 on the ARIA Club Chart. His previous single ‘Kate Moss’ went out on Sharam Jay’s infamous label Bunny Tiger.

Tom is also a part of techno duo The Journey, which were nominated for The Age Music Awards – Best Electronic Act alongside, Client Liason, Harvey Sutherland, Dom Dolla and KLLO.

Tom finds himself in the enviable position of being booked up to six months ahead of schedule. With such a full timetable preceding the subsequent hangovers, Tom routinely spends his mornings after DJing relishing the finer things in life, a hearty bacon and eggs breakfast in bed.
