Thomas is definitely one of the most talented trance producers around having achieved a remarkable number of releases with his latest release ‘Constellation’ even released on single by Paul van Dyk his label Vandit.

Thomas Bronzwaer is one of those young Dutch producers you hear about. Born in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) on the 30th of September, 1984, he became interested in dance music around the age of 13. Early inspirations were the soundtracks to the WipeOut series on the playstation, featuring artists like Paul van Dyk, Sasha, the Chemical Brothers, FSOL and the Prodigy. Around 2000 Tiesto, Push and others came into the picture. Thomas released his first record in 2003 – a collaboration with Greg Murray who took care of the technical aspect of producing while Thomas wrote the themes. More collaborations followed such as the highly acclaimed Starburst and Profound made with Paul Moelands and released on Armada.

But it wasn’t until 2005 that things really started rolling for the Dutchman. The release of his very first solo production, ‘Close Horizon’, caused something of a storm in tranceland as it was picked up by literally every big name in the scene and eventually licensed to Vandit and remixed by Paul van Dyk himself, a unique event by any stretch of the word. The follow-up single ‘Shadow World’ did even better, again picked up by all the relevant names and the two singles also sparked an interest in Thomas’ capabilities as a DJ. Meanwhile Thomas kept releasing tracks under his Arizona moniker and in 2006, he launched a completely new, techier project: Avalon. The debut single ‘Circa’ again received massive support and subsequently gigs in Europe, the USA and China followed.

In the first half of 2007 two of Thomas’ solo productions will be released on Vandit and a number of gigs are planned around the world. Thomas’ monthly radioshow Language is aired every third wednesday on the month on’s Trance Channel.

The most important thing to Thomas is that he keeps improving his skills and releasing better music, and his saying will remain the same: ‘this is just the beginning of the beginning’…
