Dom Thomas (Brutal Music)
We are pleased to announce the return of Aficionado for 2012 at Electrik Bar with very special guest Dom Thomas who will be joining balearic maestro's Moonboots & Jason Boardman for their "Valentines Massacre".
Dom Thomas and partners in crime, Andy Votel and Doug Shipton, are best known for their endless compilations on the legendary Finders Keepers label, who specialise in trawling the world in search of lost gems, and who have brought us (well, the Western world) some of the most surprising mutations of disco, funk, pop, and whatever, from the least reachable corners of the world, deliciously fused with local influences.
Expect the finest in Turkish Disco, Malaysian Funk, Vietnamese Boogie - who knows? Dom also co-runs Brutal Music, focusing on mixing up obscure and forgotten selections of some of the finest proto house, weird psyche and mashed up funk.
As a founding director of vintage vinyl archeology team "Finders Keepers" and cross-continental club night B-Music, Dom Thomas has travelled the world twice over supplying Psych-starved mods, b-boys and misfits throughout the world with his unique brand of unidentifiable cosmic slop.
An ardent, assiduous B-Music crusader - whose love of obscure, obsolete, deleted and delectable experimental vintage Pop music and graphic design has sparked a vibrant record-stall, dancefloor and sub-cultural uprising, this Manchester beat-freak spearheads an infectious, impetuous campaign that champions long-forgotten way-out sounds.
