When thinking of Dance Music, and its now long and proud heritage, there is no denying that one of the yardsticks everyone comes back to time and time again is the visionary body of work that Tom Moulton has accumulated over the course of his long and illustrious career. In the s he also began a career in modelling that would run parallel to his music.
It was here that Tom Moulton first began splicing up tapes for the discotheque. In the early s DJs played 45rpm seven-inch singles which lasted around 3 minutes.
