BOOKINGS TOMMY THE CAT

Dj Tommy The Cat

With energetic musical productions and killing it seamless behind the decks, Sammie a.k.a. Tommy The Cat is renowned for his technically explosive DJ style that never fails to makes the dance floor go boom with highly enthusiastic crowd.

Sammie van Cleef has been DJing since the mid-’90s, when he first discovered the fresh and thriving sounds of breakbeat, jungle and drum & bass. Operating under the alias Sam-C (and slight variations on it), he began playing and organizing events within the free party scene in his home country of the Netherlands and further afield too, bringing his crew’s soundsystem to abandoned warehouses and disused military spaces and other such prime raving sites. 

Over the years he has mainly been spinning drum & bass, jungle, free party tekno and acid core, hardcore and headed up the Dosis Decibel Record label. In 2018, however, Sammie started a mainly jungle Cat In The Bag Records label with alias Tommy The Cat. Since then, he’s been releasing beastly tearout worldwide junglism releases via the outlet, and alongside the likes of Coco Bryce, Tim Reaper, FFF, Duburban, AcidLab, MsDos, Subreachers, Msymiakos, Donnie Murdo, Junglefever and many more, while the following year he added other imprints, Park Sessions & Oldschool Shoes, to his repertoire.

Music production has remained the in-demand creative mainstay of Tommy The Cat’s abilities, including vinyl releases on labels such as Myor Massiv, PRSPCT, Vibes ’93, E-beamz, Unknown To The Unknown and Tuff Cuts. His dj and producer tactics are a mixture of Jungle, Oldschool DnB, Atmospherical Jungle and Oldschool Trip Hop.

Running a successful Cat In The Bag Jungle Sessions night at the OT301 in Amsterdam and bringing his Cat In The Bag sound to various venues across the Netherlands.

Tommy The Cat made several podcast guest mixes on Eruption Radio, Kings of the Amen, Vibes Promotion, PRSPCT radio, SeekSickSound, Rinse, Everyday Junglist & RaRaRadio and has been featured on the October 2020 DJ Mag edition as an emerging artist.

While constantly striving to innovate with his productions and DJ’ing, Tommy The Cat always looks to explore new musical territories and ideas, while relentlessly touring his compelling sound around Europe.
