Tom Taylor started dj'ing just before the age of 15. After listening to many DJs such as Judge Jules, Pete Tong, Graham Gold on radio stations throughout the summer, he finally decided it was time to have a go! Soon after receiving his first set of decks for Christmas, a shiny pair of Plastic Numark Belt Driven turntables with a mini 2 Channel Mixer, he quickly started the learning curve of teaching himself the basics. During this period he started producing demo tapes for his school friends! Tom entered a competition in his local town centre, he played out to a strong crowd of 500 happy shoppers at 11am on a warm saturday morning. He was to perform on Technics 1200's and a Technics Battle Mixer! Quite a step up in the world from his plastic belt drives i'm sure you'll agree, something which would prove to be a problem! Time for a new set of decks sprung to mind, a further 3 infact! Creamfields 2003 certainly opened young Tom's eyes to the clubbing culture that he had to be a part of! The Nukleuz and Frantic Hard House Arena started off his love for Hard House. With this in mind he joined clubithard.com and worked with a night known as YUM YUM In Liverpool. To this day he is still blasting out Funky and Hard House with Inspiration Promotions @ such venues such as FX, Tiger Too, and with his own hard dance brand and events: Certified: Hard House.
