ARIA Award nominated Tommy Trash is one of the biggest names in Australian dance music. Since bursting onto the scene less than five years ago, Tommy has dominated charts and dance floors alike with over 45 originals and remixes, quickly establishing himself as one of Australia’s most talented and prolific homegrown artists.
Tommy’s latest single, “All My Friends”, was his most successful to date, spending a whopping six weeks at the top of the ARIA Club Charts. A collaboration with Tom Piper and featuring Mr Wilson on vocals, “All My Friends” has already claimed its title as one of the biggest Australian dance music releases of 2011.
Prior to “All My Friends”, Mr Wilson also lent his vocals to “Need Me To Stay”, a club banger that earned Tommy an ARIA Awards nomination for Best Dance Release. “Need Me To Stay” debuted at an incredible number 14 on the ARIA Top 50 Singles Chart – the highest charting single by any Australian artist at the time – and peaked at number two on the ARIA Club Chart. With a controversial film clip that Video Hits declared too hot for TV, “Need Me To Stay” caused a frenzy on MySpace and YouTube, as well as outselling Lady Gaga’s equally controversial “Paparazzi” on Three Mobile and being viewed over 120,000 times in under a week on ninemsn’s The Fix.
Tommy’s had tunes on a bevy of top dance music labels across the world, including cr2, Great Stuff, Toolroom and Subliminal, and has collaborated with producers including John Dahlback, Moguai and Angger Dimas. Support for Tommy’s releases has come from international stalwarts including Tiesto, Axwell, Eric Morillo, Laidback Luke, Benni Benassi and Afrojack.
When not busy writing his own hits, Tommy can be found lending his remixing skills to artists from Lady Sovereign and Kaskade to Green Velvet, Armand Van Helden and Gypsy And The Cat, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. At one point, Tommy’s remixes even held the number one and number two Aria Club Chart slots simultaneously, knocking his remix of Green Velvet’s “Shake N Pop” off the top rung and replacing it with his killer rendition of Armand Van Helden’s “I Want Your Soul”.
Tommy has also been kept busy mixing a handful of Ministry of Sound’s iconic compilation albums, including the 2011 Annual, which achieved the number one position on both the iTunes Album Chart and ARIA Compilation Chart, as well as Sessions Six and Seven and Electro House Sessions One and Two.
Outside of the studio, Tommy has built a reputation as a highly skilled and much loved DJ. Curls flying, Tommy plays a crowd‐pleasing collection of his own originals, remixes, edits and bootlegs, and is an unquestionable draw card for club nights and festivals across Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Europe. From club nights at Superdisco, Family, Platinum and Moulin Rouge to festivals such as Good Vibrations, Stereosonic, Future Music Festival and God’s Kitchen, Tommy’s sets are not to be missed.
