With experience spanning three decades, DomT, aka Dom Thrupp, is one of the most versatile and sought-after DJs in London. In 2016 he played the official after party for the Massive Attack British Summer Time concert in Hyde Park and the star-studded opening party of the V&A’s “Savage Beauty” Alexander McQueen retrospective.
Dom started out as a DJ in the early eighties in his hometown of Bristol where he was a key player in the city’s ground breaking and influential music scene. In 1990 he moved to London to take up residency at the infamous Wag Club from where he launched his international career. For many years, Dom’s been a mainstay of the London club scene with longstanding residencies that include China White, Ministry of Sound, Café de Paris, The Cuckoo Club and Loulou’s.
Also a music producer and re-mixer, one of his collaborators is the legendary Nellee Hooper with whom he’s worked on various music projects, including film soundtracks. He’s also assisted Nellee on album productions for Madonna and Bjork, as well as re-mixing tracks by Massive Attack, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode and De La Soul, amongst many others.
Dom is a long time favourite of London’s art and fashion crowd. Indeed, the late Alexander McQueen, for whom he produced catwalk music, said of his friend, “Dom T always has the perfect synergy between fashion and music.” Over the years he has also created runway music in all three European fashion capitals for shows including those of Balmain, Fendi, Givenchy, Hussein Chalayan and Mary Katrantzou.
He is also the DJ of choice for exclusive international events. These include The Dolce Vita Ball in Monaco, Eddie Spencer-Churchill’s annual bash at Blenheim Palace and New Year’s Eve parties at The Mandarin Oriental in Chiang Mai.
Currently, as well as one-off high profile events and private parties, he regularly plays at The Groucho club, Novikov, Kitty Hawk, Hide restaurant and Quaglino’s.
