Chewy Rubs, known to his mom as Tom grew up immersed in an eclectic mix of music. He learned to mix rather than learning to drive, wisely buying his first 1200’s instead of a car. He passed his test with flying colors and first graced the wheels of steel in his hometown of Hereford at the legendary Naughty But Nice during the mid-nineties.
Having moved to Glasgow and then to London, his musical education continued, schooled in the sounds of breaks and hip hop, listening to The Operators and by working in a central London vinyl emporium. It was here with an endless supply of fresh vinyl, back catalogues and encircled by renowned independent shops like fat Cat, Black Market, Sista Ray and Phonica meant he could continuously indulge his passion for rare, limited edition and imported wax.
The studio and production was a natural next step and after mastering the art of Ableton and with the help of Soundcloud, his influences gelled into the Chewy Rubs sound. A steady tranche of killer edits followed, and support has come from Greg Wilson, Tiger & Woods, Derek Kaye, Danny Krivit, Fingerman & Yam Who? Along with a growing global fan base across social media by those who just love to disco.
Chewy Rubs continues to deliver a steady stream of new original material with, of course, the edits he built his name on. New tracks have been steadily appearing on leading labels like Hot Digits and Midnight Riot and are always eagerly anticipated by a growing number of supporting DJ’s and fans via social media.
With original material coming out via Fall From Grace Records and starting his new label Bandolier, 2018 and beyond is looking stellar for our furry friend.
