Tom Swoon Sentenced to Almost 5 Years in Prison
Dorian Tomasiak, aka Tom Swoon, has been sentenced for his role in a DUI manslaughter crash on December 5, 2017. The Polish music artist ran over and killed a man while under the influence of alcohol. Swoon has no recollection of why he got into the car that fateful morning.
Following the event, Swoon took time away from his work. Only those close to him knew why. He then penned this tragic letter from prison, which details his remorse for the accident. At no point does he try to run from it, but rather questions how he got to that point. His letter attempts to warn us of the pitfalls we all face, and urges others not to make his same mistakes.
It is a sobering reminder of the dangers of the lifestyle, and how fragile all life is. Please do not take the message in vain – be careful, and take care of each other.
The full translation of the court room events can be read below.
In the courtroom, Dorian T. enters today with his head bowed, introduced by police officers. When the officers remove the handcuffs, he rubs his face several times with trembling hands. About what happened on December 5, 2017 says little. – I do not remember much that day. I remember that I was in my room. Later for a long time nothing, until finally the handcuffs on my hands and the words that I killed man – Dorian T. speaks with difficulty, breathes heavily.
– The awareness that taking the second person of life is the greatest punishment that could have happened to me. I am not even able to ask for it, but I apologize to you wholeheartedly – these words are directed to the auxiliary prosecutor, who on that day with her husband was going to work. However, he does not look at her. The head has been relieved all the time.
– Did you see the letter he wrote from detention? – I ask a woman before entering the courtroom.
– I saw – the woman answers. – But what about my apology? My children hide without a father.
During the entire process, Dorian T. does not deny that he caused an accident. He wants to voluntarily submit to punishment: 4.5 years in prison, lifetime ban on driving a car, 50 thousand. PLN for the victims – presents the defender. However, the prosecutor does not agree. As he argues, punishment is inadequate to blame. Sam wants Dorian T. to spend 2.5 years more in prison, and the income should be 60,000. zł.
The case of Dorian T. runs fast. There is no testimony of witnesses outside the victim and the accused himself. This is the application of a lawyer who wanted to limit the evidence. The prosecutor also agreed to this.
– I left with my husband around 4.20 from home. It was a frost, we were driving slowly and carefully. I was driving the left side because of the animals that are on the road at this time. At one point, the lights in the back blinded me, but it was too late. It has turned us around many times. I looked at my husband and he was lying in this car. His eyes were open – here Iwona G. makes a short break. – I called 112 myself. I started shouting when people came from the gas station. They began to revive him. At one point you came in, who said he was the father of the accident offender. At one point, I approached the police car in which the perpetrator sat and said to him, “What have you done?” I have stayed with three children, they are constantly crying. The police drove me home – he adds.
The second of Dorian T.’s defenders joined the case file with thank you. This is a letter from 2015, in which the mayor of Goleniów thanks Dorian T. for making the city famous. – That day the world stopped for two people – Marek Mikołajczyk begins his speech. The merits of Tom Swoon are to show what kind of man he was before the accident.
– For the aggrieved party, but also for Dorian T. life changed completely that day. One life of Dorian T. is a man who loves literature from a child. He is a boy who runs music workshops, charity auctions. An unusual musician. A role model for young people. On December 4, he returned from India. He was tired. And the second part of life separated by the tragic date of December 5, 2017. The first picture is the inside of the police car and the injured party: “something you did”. Later, arrest, everyday awareness of what happened. A sense of guilt that is sharp like thistle spikes. Dorian will never be the same again. Two lives were lost that day. Let judgment not be a retaliation, and justice – ends.
Dorian T. at the time of the accident had two milions of alcohol in his blood. As he says, he does not remember why he got into the car, he does not remember how he did it. He drove at a speed of 180 km / h from Goleniów towards Szczecin . At the height of the Klinisko Wielkie, he pulled into the back of the G state cars, who as usual traveled to work together. The man died on the spot.
Justification of the Judgment
Today, the court found Dorian T. guilty, but he took into account the previous merits of the accused. He sentenced him to four years and eight months imprisonment. In addition, Dorian T. must pay more for Iwona G. and her three children of 70,000 zlotys. He will never be able to drive a car.
– The guilt of the accused was not in doubt, and the accused himself admitted to it – judge Kamil Worsztynowicz justifies the verdict. – The court considered that the penalty of four years and eight months of imprisonment would be appropriate. The fault is unquestionable, but the court also took into account the other circumstances which were disclosed in this case. It is about these circumstances that reveal the way of life of the accused before committing a crime and his behavior after. There is no doubt that the accused was in a stable style before the crime. In addition, the accused in the court’s judgment honestly regrets the deed he has committed. For him it is also a great tragedy, though not as great as for the victims – he adds.
The verdict is not legally binding.

Earlier this year, GRiZ left fans in suspense, shock and bewilderment when he posted a series of cryptic posts and logged off of social media. Containing phrases such as,“I’m gonna miss you guysssss”, and “It’s about time we talked”, his posts made a number of fans to create theories. Guesses ranged widely and included concerns about his health, a possible haitus, and the creation of a new album. We can rule out a hiatus since GRiZ has been performing regularly, but he has continued to leave us scratching our heads with his social media posts and spoken word videos.
Now, he drops another bomb with an “Incoming Transmission” Post. Our guess is that he is most likely returning with new music. GRiZ has built up an incredible amount suspense this year especially with his art performances at Electric Forest. There he played AND burned a recording of his second spoken word video. This fueled the fire to keep us asking what is GRiZ really up to?
While nothing else can confirm a music release, we’ll have to stay tuned to what the multi-talented producer unveils. Our only other guess is another spoken word video which in the past, he has executed with seamlessly artistry.

Between the craziness of Amsterdam Dance Event parties, Throttle took the time to answer some of our questions about his new release ‘Wanderlust’ on Spinnin’ Records and more. The Australian DJ/producer, who’s known for his killer throwback remakes and funk induced future house hits, took a bold new direction with ‘Wanderlust’ that proved to be extremely rewarding. He talked about his original influences that continue to inspire him as well as the emotional direction he took for this song. On top of that, we got a chance to ask about some of his craziest DJ moments and what life is like with such a large fanbase.
Can you tell us about your new release and what inspired it?
Sure, it’s called Wanderlust. It was released last Friday. It’s probably the most emotional song I’ve done to date, I’d say.
It’s a little bit different vibes than what you usually do, yeah?
It is, yeah. It’s still got that funky vibe but it’s certainty more emotional than a lot of good stuff I’ve done in the past. And that’s kind of the vibe we’re focusing on now is more emotional stuff.
Nice, is there any particular reason for that?
It’s just kind of the music I’m into right now and that’s the stuff that I really love. Which is the more Madeon, when I started producing, that got me into more emotional stuff.
Would you say he’s one of your bigger influences?
Yeah, I mean maybe not now but when I first started.
Who were some of your other influencers too?
Tons, most of mine are actually out side of the EDM world, to be honest. Like Billie Eilish, love. Anything kind of in that world, I guess. SZA, I love too, more R&B, of course. In the electronic world, I guess Madeon and Porter, two big influences. I love Rezz.
How many times do you listen to your same track before you end up release it?
Do ever get so sick of your track, or like “I hate this now”?
Yeah, I find that if a song’s good enough to listen to a thousand times and still be able to bare it, then it’s good enough to put out. Even if you get insecure about it in the end, if you listen to any song a thousand times over, it’s going to change in your ears, but if you still like listening to it and there’s something that surprises you, it is good to release.
Who are your main people you go to for feedback, when you are too much in your head?
Don Diablo I send a lot of stuff too, Oliver Heldens, Kungs cause we have a song together of course, CID all the time.
What is the craziest thing that has happened to you, when you’re on tour or been djing?
Probably the police shutting down a frat party. That was last August, I think, FIJI at Georgia Tech. I was playing at their frat house and I lasted 40 minutes I think, before the police shut it down. It was insane… Like an undercover cop, who was underaged came in, saw that there was underaged drinking. So, the cop was, I don’t know, 19 or 20 and started arresting the bartenders. Shut the whole thing down.
It was on fight night too, like McGregor. It was insane and they shut the whole thing down. The guy comes up to me and is like “turn it off”. I was like, uh….
So naturally, you turned it up?
Haha no I was like, “I’ll turn it down a little bit” and he’s literally like “No, cut it now!” Cause it was in a frat house, so the frat house was shaped like this, with balconies on each side aAnd then there’s blue and red lights like around the whole thing. I was like, “oh, s***.”
Alright, what is the craziest thing, when you think of crazy, that a fan has said to you?
I haven’t had too many crazy things, honestly. I mean, I get drawings, which is nice. No, I mean nothing really crazy, honestly, mostly kind of nice stuff. Maybe I’m not one of the fav to get like a finger nail or something. Haha I don’t know what people get. I’ve heard of people who have gotten a hair before.
What are your pet peeves in the music industry?
In the music industry, I would say people not exploring when they make music. Like as in, is they just staying very much with the format. Especially when you tour you see, and I feel like people who are big have such a big platform. They’re able to create music that’s different, but I feel like people often get lazy.
Do you ever feel pressured to stay within the format?
No, I don’t think so. I feel like I just have a bit of a duty to make music that’s outside of the box and I feel like we all do. Just to push the boundaries, otherwise, with dance music will just forever stay where it is.
Are you ever afraid to push boundaries?
No, I don’t think so. I mean I’ve seen sometimes, what a bad influence when I do, but yeah it’s worth it, I think. Keeps me sane.
If you were going to collab with anyone right now, who would it be? EDM and Non-EDM
Skrillex for sure and Billie Eilish.
