In an industry where DJs and producers come and go in the blink of an eye, Tom Novy has sustained a career that has stretched over 18 years to date with no sign of him slowing down anytime soon! Achieving numerous chart hits, television appearances, world-renowned residencies and underground anthems, there is not a part of the dance music world that Tom has not graced with his infectious personality and endearing sense of fun.
Hailing from Munich, Germany, Tom has been firmly established on the dance music scene since 1995 when he released his first single ‘I House You’ which immediately entered the top 10 of the German Dance Chart. The following year Tom released ‘Superstar’ which gained him further international recognition and held chart positions in 18 countries worldwide. 1998 saw the release of ‘I Rock’, a track that cemented his place on the European dance scene and a notched up an impressive 18 weeks on the Airplay Top 100.
After spending most of the 90’s honing his skills as a DJ and releasing numerous chart and club hits, 2000 was the year when Tom’s career really began take off on a global level. His track ‘Pumpin’ reached #19 in the UK singles chart in June of that year and earned him the chance to mix the Ministry of Sound Annual compilation, becoming the first German DJ to do so. The following year saw him release his debut artist album ‘My Definition’ which perfectly showcased Tom’s wide range of influences and musical styles. The hits continued to flow in 2004 with the release of ‘Lovin U’ a track which touched base with listeners as far a field as South Africa where it entered the national Top 10.
For all of his massive achievements up until this point it was in 2005 and the release of ‘Your Body’ featuring Mike Marshall, that Tom really struck a chord with the mainstream. The track gained the support of every major UK radio station as well as MTV and subsequently entered the singles chart Top 10 in 2006 and held a top 15 place in no less than 20 other countries. Later in the year the re-released ‘Take It’ featuring Lima scored another UK hit reaching number 37 and charted in the top 30 in Germany and Australia.Tom recently remixed the mighty Snap classic ‘Rhythm Is a Dancer’ and scored a number one Beatport single in 2008.
On the remix front, the calibre of artists Tom has worked with could not be higher. Global superstars such as Justin Timberlake, Yoko Ono, Ludacris, Erick Morillo, Tom Jones & Mousse T, 10CC, Snap and Sander Kleinenberg have all come in for the expert Tom Novy remix treatment.
Back in Germany, Tom’s charismatic demeanour has led him to become a successful television presenter, hosting a total of four shows (three of which are on MTV). Unsurprisingly given his natural stage presence, Tom hosts a weekly radio show on egoFM and has a slot on NRJ Beirut which he has held since 2002.
It is impossible to talk about Tom Novy without mentioning Space, Ibiza where he has held a residency for an unbelievable 14 seasons.
