Deconstructed Live: Tom Middleton DJ Set

tom-middleton-duskyTruro School old boy, international DJ and renowned producer returns to his home town for a special performance. While Tom’s radio shows for Kiss and Radio One remain the stuff of legend, his own recordings and remixes for everyone from Depeche Mode to Prince, rocked every corner of dance music. Global Communication’s Maiden Voyage and 76:14 (his partner in that project Mark Pritchard visited a few months later)  remain some of my favourite records, and the chance to invite Tom Middleton to the turntables was irresistible.

Thankfully, Tom leapt at the chance to return to his home town, bringing plenty of friends and some mad, mad records, playing for a fraction of his usual fee and becoming the sixth guest of Deconstructed Live. What a gent.
