Tom Donax

Tom Donax’ real name is Thomas Donati. He was born in Toulon (South of France) in May 1984. His father was a former trumpetist in a jazz band and inspired him to learn play music at a very young age. He studied the piano for several years and later learned to play the trumpet. Exposed to an artistic background since his childhood, Thomas plays a lot but most of all prefers composing his own melodies.

In High School, he took an interest in electronic music and its unlimited possibilities. The “French touch” movement was celebrating its heyday during this period in France. He bought his first equipments and set them up in his bedroom and began exploring the technological possibilities of music. His influences come directly from Jazz, Funky music, bands and artists such as Kool & the Gang, Toto, Vangelis, Dobbie Brothers to Jean Michel Jarre, Air, and the Chemical Brothers.

At seventeen, Thomas met Fred de F, a southern French artist with the same passion and they decided immediately to work together. A year later, they created their own record label, “Radioactif Music” to maintain their independence of creation that is expressed through their innovative musical fusion.

In his first debut single Radioactif Music EP “Hot Clubbers” (RAM001), Thomas delivers two fresh tracks “Express your love” and “House Feelings”.  This first opus was distributed inhouse, selling their record from shop to shop.

In 2005, Thomas then 20, released the third record which has driven Radioactif to the international scene.  Soon after the release of the song Dreamin’, the progressive, funky bass captivated DJ’s attention.
With a strong remix from Fred, this RAM003, different in nature from the happening style is being played in the finest clubs, for the pleasure of the audience who is led into a dream, the space of an instant, by the chorus.

Several months later, Fred de F asked Thomas to remix the track “Disco Revolution”(RAM004) which also became very popular.

Fred De F / Fred DeFrance

 

Precocious and gifted, Fred de F touches his first keyboard at 3 years old. Very attracted to music, he learned very fast to recognised and reproduce songs.
Jean Michel Jarre, its first influence, drove him to the electronic music. “Jarre is an artistic model who pioneered the computer music, used by everybody nowadays” says Frederic, feeling admiration for Vangelis too…

Discovering the guitar with artists like Jimmy Hendrix and Carlos Santana, he was driven to the rock music sphere during his teenage years.

Fred’s influences are very eclectic.

During his teenage years, he listened to Rage Against the machine, Metallica, Offspring, Iron Maiden, Nirvana… It was also the period in which he felt in love with the Bass, its instrument of predilection.

Later, marqued by the DJ movement, Fred came back to electronic music. In this universe, Fred who early on was playing popular pieces, prefers now to compose and perform his own material.

Five albums, very strucked by the bass and a strong compression have been released through the internet. With a music style in constant progress, his tracks such as Baby for Love, Electric Funky and many more were successful and ranked amongst the best downloads; He finished fourth in 1999 Vitaminic contest.

In 2003 with Thomas, they created their own record label “Radioactif Music” in order to be independent in their musical choices.
His records on Radioactif Section Rock (RAM002), Disco Revolution(RAM004), Electron modulator, Funky love (RAM005) have been widely played. There is always something mystery that makes you move, maybe that mixture between rock, funk and Electro !
