Turbo Recordings. Fear. Trust. Respect. An unbeatable stable of artists. A catalog beyond compare. Thomas Von Party is the man behind the label, Tiga’s brother, a DJ and up-and-coming artist in his own right.
TVP joined Tiga’s label Turbo as head of A&R in 2006. Since then, he has been responsible for putting together Turbo’s much-lauded releases, remix packages, podcasts, and tours, having signed such artists as Azari & III, Gesaffelstein, Popof, Brodinski, Sei A, and Proxy.
As a DJ, TVP is able to go hard, go house and go to your home to play a Goa-themed anniversary set for your former wife and her new husband. Festivals, after-hours parties, infra-hours parties – he does it all with the flair of a chameleon with particularly eclectic taste in contemporary dance music.
In 2008, he added “co-remixer” to his resume, collaborating with Brad Lamborghini on a remix of Moby’s “I Love to Move in Here.” Thomas has also co-directed two music videos, for Tiga’s “Hot in Herre” – which garnered him a number of award nominations – and “Louder than a Bomb”. Is there anything he can’t co-do?
And what does the future hold for Thomas Von Party? “I have a million ideas for the label: online scented-candle sessions, stealing music back from people, making children smile. All that and my own EP in 2012.”
