thomas gandey review
Discovered by Fat Boy Slim at Miami WMC, the two Brighton boys soon struck a musical accord and have since toured the world together, from Vegas to Japan. Supporting Underworld, the Chemical Brothers and Fat Boy Slim himself, Thomas Gandey has been on World Tour with them all. 

Brighton born, but now resident in Berlin, you know if Thomas Gandey is taken seriously by the underground hotbed of Europe, he must be a force to be reckoned with. 

Well loved for his 2012 Ibiza anthem, Horny, a remix of the Mousse T classic with Radio Slave, you'll find Thomas Gandey main stage regularly at all the major festivals, performing live & as a DJ.

His legendary mixes have been featured on Pete Tong's Essential Mix for Radio 1 and DJ Mag, and it's common territory to find Thomas Gandey topping the Beatport charts. All you Castle Koh Tao lovers are in for a treat! 


Listen out for him to drop his new track, That's the Trouble, released under Thomas' alias Cagedbaby on Fat Boy Slim's record label Skint, at The Castle...  

Deep germanic underground grooves, uplifting piano solos, enchanting vocals - deep and meaningful yet uplifting and groovy, that's the trouble with you, soulful yet hard hitting - a bewitching deep house tour de force.

"This is my fourth year in Koh Tao. Once again I've had an amazing time with wonderful friends coming and going. This is my longest trip yet and I've really got to explore the islands. Meeting new people all the time and enjoying the island life."

Thomas recently played the Maya Beach Festival at the Campsite Koh Tao alongside Jonathon Ulysses, Leeroy Thornhill of Prodigy and Phil Hartnoll of Orbital


"The Campsite was a great couple of nights, superb location for a party, like an amphitheatre. The sound system was the best I've heard over here, & a brilliant line up. The Escape Yacht VIP party was great fun too, swaying on the dance floor while the boat rocked was super fun, like an informal underground line dance." 

And next he is headlining The Castle Koh Tao on Mar 12th along with Ibiza favourite Marco Loco, voted Ibiza Resident DJ 2013. Keep Calm & Party!

"I have been to the Castle to see my friend Marco Loco play and loved the vibe in the party. Definitely looking forward to putting my spin on the music and giving everyone a great time. See you there!"

Does that mean we on Koh Phangan are missing out? Not a chance! Catch Thomas at Ku Club on Mar 13th and Jungle Experience's Full Moon Warm Up Party Mar 14th.

Thomas Gandey's next gigs on the Thai islands:
The Castle Koh Tao:  Weds 12th March 
Ku Club Koh Phangan:  Thurs 13th March 
Jungle Experience Koh Phangan:  Fri 14th March

Get your groove on!
