His trance releases were regularly supported in most popular radio shows like Armin Van Buuren's A State Of Trance, Above & Beyond's Group Therapy (also Trance Around The World back then) and Markus Schulz's Global DJ Broadcast. He also won the 2nd place for one of Armada's remix contests in 2012.
After many years in the trance scene, Tom felt he needed the change to grow as an artist and move away from trance, so he decided to try his skills in other genres, trying to compete in the more global side of dance music.
Around 2015 the concept of Tom Crusher was born and shortly after, in early 2016 he had his debut release at Hardwell's Revealed Recordings with his first track 'In Control' which was included on the label's compilation 'Miami Sampler 2016'. The track was supported by an enormous amount of the biggest DJs across the world including Dannic, Sander Van Doorn, Firebeatz, VINAI and the label boss, Hardwell himself.
