Thomas Jay Tsuruda (born August 9, 1991) was immersed in music as soon as he could read. Starting with piano as a child, and with violin and vocal lessons soon to follow, he is no stranger to classical training and the self discipline that comes with it.

Due to his early involvement with music, it comes as no surprise that Thomas fell into the world of producing at the young age of fifteen.
With influences like Madlib and Flying Lotus, Tsuruda's style is diverse, elegant, and complex. Disregarding all genres, he isn't afraid to push the boundaries of electronic bass and hip hop music. His live sets are always a unique surprise and have taken him around North America sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in the game. Tsuruda made his Vancouver debut with Ekali and High Klassified in May, 2015, shortly after his legendary sunrise set at Emissions Music Festival with G Jones and Slow Magic. He's also no stranger in the Bay Area of California, holding down stages with Penthouse Penthouse, Sweater Beats, Zeke Beats, Mikos Da Gawd, Woolymammoth and many more.
