Tom Grainger is a proud Yorkshireman, fanatical Leeds United supporter and general rate grumpy bastard. Following a long-awaited move to the capital (in pursuit of a glamorous career in the music industry) he’s been quick to make a name for himself on the London club scene, holding down a Saturday night residency at Dalston’s The Nest—in addition to regular slots at Leeds’ Canal Mills and Croatia’s Hideout Festival.
His selections are informed by everything from classic ‘80s pop to ‘90s French Touch, as well as more contemporary house and techno sounds all of which can be heard on his monthly “For Your Pleasure” show on London’s Hoxton FM. Past gigs have taken Grainger as far afield as Space and Ushuaia in Ibiza—and just down the M62 to Manchester’s Warehouse Project. He’s has been featured on Rinse FM and has played along side some of the best in the biz: a truly versatile jock adept at keeping all kinds of dancefloors moving. By ‘eck!
