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.
