om’s rise from Adelaide hopeful to Gold Coast superstar has all the makings of short lived HBO series. It’s not that he’s too busy – although a constant schedule of Modern Warfare 3 and the occasional 100km Charity Bike Ride do keep him occupied. It’s just that Tom has worked too hard and come too far to enjoy anything but the finest life has to offer, and boring himself with writing biographies doesn’t fit in with his designer lifestyle. Neither does production, remixes or radio shows. All you need to know is that in the art of entertaining people with other people’s music. Tom Starks is a modern day Davinici. No gimmicks or superstar DJ cliches, just a refreshing, unpredictable yet energetic blend of music; the devil’s in the details. In between holding down the position of main resident at the Gold Coast’s SinCity Nightclub, you can find Mr Starks traversing Australia, bringing a touch of class to DJ Booths nationwide.

Dance, Electro, house, Drum and Bass, Dub step and breaks. I have engaged the entertainment industry by taking and encouraging crowds dedicated to the nightclub and festival scene both nationaly and internationally... Known in most clubs as “MC KITCH” i like to deliver my individual sound through the art of beatboxing, Reggae vocals and the flare for hip hop through particular elements derived from the vast genres of dance music today. Showcasing amazing talents and the opportunity to express passion with love for dance, hip hop and reggae, enables self expression and the ability to reach out and connect through the gift of music through sound.
