Mountain Folk is a new project on Jack to Phono Records with René Kirkegaard and Tom Eno. René is a DJ/ Producer based in Aarhus , Denmark. In 1997 René set up the record shop Dezigner Soundz which quickly became a focal point for vinyl crazy Aarhus DJs. It quickly established itself and had DJ Static running the hip hop section whilst René took care of electronica and house music. René and Tom were introduced in 2011 and started to fire ideas across the North Sea.

Tom has been busy recording acoustic material for his 2 studio albums to date and wanted to work on more electronic based project. He has recently received airplay from Steve Lamacq, Don Letts and Rob Da Bank. Once the track was finished Tom and René met for the second time in Wales and have recently started recording an album together. The project has been shared with Alastair Lee a film maker, he was so impressed by the track he used it in his recent film Moonflower. He was then also generous enough to release footage from Alaska for the video which will accompany the release. There are also 2 luminaries of the music world Ashley Beedle (Afrikanz on Marz) and Sundogs (Tactical Hots Records) who have remixed the track for the 12-inch release. The track has also been played on Danish National Radio in recent weeks. Tom makes his singing debut on the track and the mix of blend of the guitar style meeting René’s electronic world make the sound unique on JTP.

The album is in production and will follow later in 2012.

Hailing from downtown Winchester, Tom’s distinctive playing style blends classical Spanish and jazz guitar, drawing inspiration from jazz masters Charlie Byrd and Django Reinhardt as well as classical guitarists and composers such as Segovia and Villa-Lobos. His sound has been turning heads with hefty praise from heavyweight DJs & tastemakers alike including BBC Radio 1’s Rob Da Bank and Hôtel Costes, who featured his track ‘Tijuana’ on one of their compilations.

Tom has been involved in many projects in the last few years, including an album with singer and producer Mr James Bright, collaborations with German label Jazz & Milk and Argentinean producer Ezequiel Lodeiro. His newest project Mountain Folk with Danish producer René Kirkegaard has already attracted good attention with spot plays on Danish National Radio. A recent career highlight was his production work with Tickler Tea & Magic Fuzz’s track ‘The Shakedown’, which received radio play from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamaq, was a top 5 Xposure tune on John Kennedy’s XFM show and featured in the top 100 singles of 2010 in Drowned in Sound.

Tom has been busy performing live too, DJing at Glastonbury and Ejector Seat festival with The Overeasy Collective this year so far and with previous gigs at London’s Jazz Cafe, Big Chill House, The Social, The Enterprise and The Bedford alongside live appearances on BBC Radio Solent being well received.
