Artist Biography by

Tom Kubli (b. Heidelberg, Germany) employed the Planet Jazz sobriquet in the mid-90s to release ambient dance records that drew heavily on Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis. Previously Kubli had played keyboards and bass in a variety of musical conglomerations, including both punk and gospel groups. However, after discovering techno and house music he elected to work solo, establishing a studio in his own converted warehouse home in Frankfurt. Hosting parties from there gave him the impetus to start recording his own work as Planet Jazz. These releases included two singles for Sven Väth's acclaimed Harthouse Records, "Monster" and "Yellow Agents", as well as a project with Eden 123 credited to True Frequencies. (NB: Not to be confused with the American jazz act of the same name.)
