Tommy Trash’s Group Chat EP is a family affair like none other. The electro emperor’s latest was assembled during the “Gold Gone Wild” tour, which paired Tommy with some of FG’s newest and truest talents, from label founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs to LA young guns Madeaux, Kittens and Gladiator. From the moment the first drop hits, you can tell that this project was created with the previous night’s set still ringing in the collaborators’ ears; Group Chat ain’t no quickie collage, however. Tommy’s lifetime of dance music expertise serves as a masterful spirit guide for the anything-goes experimentation, connecting the dots between A-Trak’s pop smarts and and Catchdubs’ cut-n-paste hip hop chops, adding extra oomph to Kittens late-night breakbeats and Gladiator’s trap symphonies, and polishing Madeaux’s industrial-strength darkness into a techno gem far greater than the sum of its parts. Teamwork makes the dream work… text this one to a friend near you! Sleeve by Braulio Amado.
