Tommy Trash “Group Chat Remixes”

Posted on Apr 28th, 2017

Tommy Trash created the original Group Chat EP while touring with his Fool’s Gold labelmates, and their late night, on-the-go energy was tangible on every single track. On the Australian dance king’s new Group Chat Remixes EP, he takes his family affair global, enlisting a surprising batch of brand new producers and rising remix talent to flip those collabs with A-Trak, Gladiator, Kittens and more into fresh club weapons. Turn your read receipts on, these are coming in hot…

Tommy Trash “Group Chat” EP

Posted on Nov 18th, 2016

Tommy Trash’s newest Fool’s Gold project is a family affair like none other. The electro emperor’s Group Chat EP 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 that 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! Read More
