Tomasz Guiddo – DJ, composer, multi-instrumentalist, sound designer, radio journalist. Founder of Fine Coincidence Recordings.
Being raised in Warsaw and Berlin, his musical career started at an early age performing in theatres as a young guitar prodigy. It soon became an addiction to music itself, where jazz and flamenco were the greatest of influences. His first music productions (while still attending primary school) were made using a PC and some very basic ‘cut and paste’ software.
Around 2002 he reached out for some new sampling and mixing techniques and got involved in non-commercial dance music. His first DJ experience he gained in Warsaw’s underground clubs (Pruderia, Piekarnia, Luzztro). In 2008 he became a member of the Warsaw Electronic Festival artists community playing an active role in the East-European experimental electronic music scene development as both sound-artist and promoter.
Since September 2005, Guiddo manages his own cyclic radio show – ‘Input-Output-Putput’ on RadioJazzFM (www.radiojazz.fm), presenting a fusion of rare grooves and spiritual jazz every Wednesday at 6PM(CET).
Always close to the German electronic music scene he finally moved back to Berlin in 2011 and set his recording studio up in Prenzlauer Berg. A year later his house music project – Manhooker – released the debut EP ‘Wheels in Motion’ (“Genius!” – De:Bug Magazine 01/02/2013) on Unterton/Ostgut Ton. Next releases and deals with the most influential record labels – such as Sonar Kollektiv, Luv Shack, Connaisseur, Mule Musiq – followed.
2014 saw Guiddo relocating to Shenzhen, China. He quickly became an inspirational figure as trend-setting DJ and pioneer promoter (booker and resident DJ at Pepper Club, co-owner of Lavo Jazz Bar, co-founder of VINYLHOUSE Recordstores, music director of Shark Lounge, curator of ChoP sound-art festival and resident DJ at Potato Head Hong Kong). “The man putting Shenzhen on the map!” – Mixmag.
In 2020 Tomasz has returned to Berlin and is now involved in Rave The Planet – a non-profit organisation aiming to protect Club Culture as UNESCO Intangible Heritage and to bring back the spirit of the Love Parade with a new ‘big techno parade’ on July 9th 2022. www.ravetheplanet.com
Throughout his 2 decades long DJ career, Tomasz Guiddo has performed at the most prestigious venues all over the world: from Berghain in Berlin to MoMA PS1 New York, Lantern Beijing to Woobar Bali.
Recent studio collaborations include names like Ingrid Chavez, Jamie Lidell, Ursula Rucker, Louie Austen, Jimi Tenor, Rexy, Georges Perin, Nirosta Steel, Niki Darling, Arnold Kasar and many more.
