Tommy de Roos
Muzikant/filmmaker/animator. Door te werken binnen de verschillende richtingen ontstaat er een geheel in geluid en beeld. Inspiratie wordt geput uit zijn verzamelwoede en liefde voor B-films, kindertelevisie, speelgoed, comics en vinyl. Het doel is een wereld te creƫren waarin analoge en digitale technieken gecombineerd worden en waar tastbaarheid een belangrijke rol speelt. Altijd bezig met de uitbreiding van zijn groeiende familie van karakters, dit in de vorm van handpoppen, comics, animaties en illustraties. Naast het beeldende werk treedt hij onder de naam FFF met zijn muziek wereldwijd op. In zijn muziek worden dezelfde invloeden verwerkt en wederom een evenwicht gezocht tussen oud/nieuw, analoog/digitaal.

Tommy de Roos
Rotterdam based Musician/Filmmaker/Animator Tommy de Roos. Through working within different disciplines a world of image & sound develops. Inspired by his obsessive collecting of comics, records, VHS tapes & toys and his love for B-movies and childrens television. The main goal is to create a world where analogue & digital techniques combine and where tangibility plays an important role. Always busy creating new members of his family of characters in the form of (hand)puppets, comics, illustrations and animations.
Used to run the Helter skelter & Orange socks zines from mid 90's till 2001 and drew for many other zines during this period. Last few years the drawing went more to the background and is now focusing more creating video (animations and documentaries) and producing music under his FFF moniker.

Setting fire to dancefloors with chopped breaks, deadly deep subs, soundclash mentality and pure euphoria.

FFF started "djing" on 2 turntables (without pitch control) early 90s. Mixing mainly rave, techno and the sparse UK breakbeat hardcore imports that arrived at his local record shops.
First steps into making music: combining sounds from vinyl mixed with tapeloops, sounds from his sisters keyboard and a lot of feedback. Things changed big time when his parents bought a PC and his friends turned him onto tracker software.

Mid 90s he started the cassette label "Orange Socks" on which he released his own material plus music from his friends and artists he met through tapetrading. He released his first track on vinyl in 2001 (on the French Necromaniacs Industry label) and from then on kept releasing on  a wide range of labels (see list of labels below) His first full length album "20.000 Hardcore Members Can't Be Wrong" was released on the Japanese Murder Channel Label in 2011. And the follow up "Keep The Fire" in 2013.

In 2001 Bong-Ra & FFF organized the Breakcore a GoGo parties. These became one of the first regular Breakcore nights in Europe. When BCGG ended in 2004, FFF continued to promote breakcore & Jungle on the monthly Wreck havoc nights which never officially stopped and still pop up once in a while.

FFF is an obsessive vinyl collector. A trip to the record shop, flea market, thrift stores, record fair and the element of surprise that comes with crate digging are most of the times the basic inspiration for a new track.

Live you can expect amen warfare, hoovers, rave horns and tropical vibes with elements of jungle, rave, bubbling, dancehall and gabber.
