SKY GARDEN BALI
JL. Legian 61 Kuta Bali
In spite of his tender age, Heeswijk-Dinther’s own Thomas Newson has made an unshakable mark on the global dance circuit. A young and unstoppable warhorse serving blow-after-blow of quality music to the digital market and its expanding live arena, huge collaborations and impressive label ventures have made Newson an unprecedented success story by anyone’s standards. Having experienced a huge spike in industry stamina throughout 2014, the road ahead is one of unlimited potential for Holland’s next prospective heir to the big room throne.
With no shortage of European contenders to battle against, Newson’s ascent can be attributed to a genuine focus on quality from the outset. Bent on matching tough sounds with melodic composure, that balance between the club floor and the expanding radio market is the route through which the young talent has built an impressive repertoire with artists from across the industry spectrum. In his own words, it’s the combination of great ideas alongside talented people that make the kind of unforgettable moments in music that Thomas Newson wants to be a part of.
For all his early musical aspirations, it took just two years for Newson to assert himself as a dominant player of the European circuit. After road testing the track during his infamous Tomorrowland set, Hardwell wasted little time in
signing ‘Pallaroid’ – Newson’s debut strike for Revealed Recordings. Following DOORN debut ‘Flute,’ the track represented a second entry into the Beatport top ten and a universal spike in attention towards the young Dutch contender and his practiced big room advocacy. Subsequent releases for Spinnin’ Records, Musical Freedom and Armada Music have seen the young talent consistently hold the upper echelon of the industry, signaling an unprecedented yet well-deserved spike for Newson and his accomplished studio getup.
With singles for Protocol Recordings, Revealed Recordings and a subsequent remix for Hardwell still to show their face, Newson’s studio efforts for the remainder of 2014 are matched with a significant run of live landmarks, including two spots at Tomorrowworld and subsequent high profile action at Amsterdam Dance Event. If Thomas Newson represents the precedent set for the next generation of big room stars then its future looks brighter than ever.
