Within his sound factory, TomA is a french composer and beatmaker who creates music by transforming reality into a musical journey.
His music is an hydra, a mix between sampling technics, acoustic and ethnic sounds, electronic music and digital noise.
With many influences from Hip-hop to Krautrock, you'll find something for your ears and add the term future beat to your musical vocabulary. After a first album in 2011, he released in 2012 his first mixtape 100% DIY from the production to the distribution and off course the composition.
In 2013, he crosses the Atlantic to go to Montreal with his last LP "Numbers Station" in his luggage. He starts collaborating with many local artists such as Art Beat Montréal, On The Stick Records, BigBang MTL and many other. He becomes a member of the Pinkcloud's collective. Back in France with a new disc called "Lost Frequencies", he now performs on stage an organic live show which leaves room to improvisation in a live beatmaking set. At the end of 2014 he released his EPhemere EP produced in Montreal. These 6 tracks take us on a journey to the unknown, where the time does not exist, at the borders of electronic and urban music.

Vraiment excellent, j'ai écouté "L'illusion du bonheur" plusieurs fois d'affilées ^^
There are Tone Poems and there are Soundscapes: then there is this Collection which is on a Level Entirely its Own! And not to put too of a Fine Point on it these Songs are Pure Sonic Magic! Track #1. 'L'illusion Du Bonheur' starts the Album on a Eccentric Electro Lounge Hybrid which has a Retro Disco-Pop( Late 70s sort of Feel)Ambiance. This Track alone is worthy of Representing the Album but as the songs continue; even more Wondrous Sound Textures reveal themselves in the most enchanting ways such as Track #5. 'Migrations' which incorporate Traditional African Rhythms or Track #6. 'Clean it Up', that mingles, Techno, Woodwinds and a Island-esque Vocal. The Album Title suggests impermanence but once heard I believe these songs will never be forgotten.
This Collection is HARD to Describe because it is So Many MAGICAL Things Blended Simultaneously! Strong Elements of very Contrasting Genres such as Dubstep and East Indian Style(s)( Bengali )World Beat co-exist within the same Song ( Track #3.'Telephone Call From Bengalore') not to mention the Entire Album. East Indian Dialects contrast with French, Syth Bass Contrast with Native Eastern/Middle East Virtual Woodwinds and Strings. Other Worldly Female/Male Adult Vocals contrast with those of Children. Track #6. 'Cercle Polaire', adds English, Howling Huskies and Countless Sound Effects in a Wonderfully Strange Arctic Themed Work. Track #12. 'Cabora Bassa Part.2[Feat AGE]' tosses in American Style Hip Hop/Rap and so goes the Collection; multiple Genres, Themes, Moods and Musical Textures. Explore for yourself.
It's ALL Here! Techno Pop, Jazzy Pop, French Lyric Hip Hop, English DJ Voice Overs, Splashes of Trance, Lyrical Riffs, Melodic Melodies and purely pleasurable Music for relaxed listening. Every time you listen to this Album something New will be heard. Track #3. '-273', takes a Hypnotic Bell-like Melody and Blends it with Cool Synth Keyboard and Hip Hop Digital Percussion for a Ultra Lovely Composition. Track #6. 'Onomatopees', somehow Fuses Trance with Urban for a Lively Dance to Road Mix Cruiser Song that DOES NOT QUIT! Track #1. 'Le 13eme Singe', starts the Album on a Power Trip of Brass(Trumpet), Fusion of Jazzy Pop-Lounge and Trance and sets an Unstoppable Tide of Great Music for the remaining 20 Tracks. Only a Fool will not recognize the Musical Greatness contained in this Collection. Grab it while you can.
