Skwid

Higher Recordings - Australia

Growing up in the Bayside of Melbourne city; Tom Parker’s upbringing was fully immersed in the love of music, married with a deep affinity for the wilderness. With many years of explorations into music creation, Tom is now combining many different elements of sound, to express the depth of his soul and bring a fresh tasting original psychedelic trance to the dance ground. 2016 witnessed Skwid’s explosion onto the Australian psychedelic scene, playing most weekends across the country and releasing his debut single “Transition” to the emerging label Higher Recordings. Throughout the past two years, Skwid has consistently played in Melbourne and around the country. He has gained a reputation for his original driving psychedelic sound, and featured on festival line-ups such as Rainbow Serpent, Babylon, Earth Frequency, Infinite One [New Zealand] and the inaugural Entropie Festival [Germany]. His release with label-mate Wild titled “Singularity”, topped the Beatport Psy-Trance release charts for 7 days, an achievement repeated with his remix of Zone Tempest’s “Synergy” released on Higher Recordings in December 2017. A lifetime of dedicated experience, endlessly exploring organic synthesised sounds, working harmoniously with a naturally electric stage presence, the music and performance of Skwid walks a majestic line between deep diverse soundscapes and full power bass heavy energies.
