The Canadian House producer Tiga sometimes tells this story about how he was at a hotel gym in LA, minding his own business, playing Tomboy on his “ghetto blaster”. Then Michael Douglas walks in, he grooves to the music for a few minutes and then tells Tiga: “This music is fucking great, man”. So trust Michael Douglas, a movie star, Oscar winner and sex addict … HE LOVES TOMBOY!

Tomboy aka Tomas Barfod (DJ, Über-producer and drummer of the futuristic Danish disco band Who Made Who) is one of the most talked about guys in the new Electronic scene. He has done four euphorically received solo maxi singles on Gomma and this year has also been asked to do a single for Tiga’s Turbo label, Get Physical and Kitstune.

Now its time for his solo debut album: “Serios” are 14 moody, mellow, but freaked out spaceship electro songs. Inspired by 70ies Cosmic disco, 90ies Warp and leftfield electronica and the funky side of rave culture.

But “Serios” isn’t a dance album even if it consists of elements from the danceunivers. Tomboy is a tricky guy. He uses common clubmusic ingredients (acid lines, discobreaks, ravesynthesizers, drummachines) in a totally unusual way. He plays the drums and reworkes them with electronic techniques. Creating this very personal sound.

“Serios” is sleazy chilled out music – but far away from any chill hop lounge. And even if it was made by a “real” musician and studio wizzard the music never sounds too clean and perfect.

The album TomboySerios” (Gomma) is going to be released February 19, 2007.
