Thomas Slinger, known professionally as Gemini, after his astrological sign, is an English producer, songwriter, vocalist and DJ.
Born and raised in Leicester, he soon discovered a talent for the production of electronic dance music (particularly dubstep) and released his first EP, Blue, on 14 February 2011 while studying at Leeds University. He is co-owner of Inspected Records and, so far, has produced four EPs (Blue, Graduation, Fire Inside, and Mercury) and a charity single for Movember (Beyond The Shadows) with the label. His first single (Down/Electric Rain) was released via Lifted Music's sister label, Breed12Inches. His second EP (Without You) was released via Beta Recordings.
2 April 2013, he launched his Lonely Hearts series with the first edition of Fire Inside including vocals by Greta Svabo Bech and himself. He publishes the releases of these series on the basis of a limited edition. All the series are self-released.
He has featured heavily on BBC Radio 1's night time shows especially the likes of Zane Lowe, Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac. He appeared in Radio 1's Festive Festival 2011 and also produced a minimix for BBC Radio 1Xtra's MistaJam.
After four years of silence Thomas revealed his new single on 5 February 2016, Time To Share, which is taken directly from his first full-length album Wanderlust. Released September 2016, this album is a representation of his "adventure of a lifetime".
"I've been on a journey of self discovery that has led me to the darkest and most beautiful places on earth. From the northern lights of Norway and desolate lands of Iceland to discovering lost civilisations and climbing mountains deep in the heart of Asia."
