Tommy Trash's Exclusive Mix
 
Tommy Trash has been enjoying a massive summer. Showcasing a plethora of hot new productions during landmark performances at places like EDCLV and Tomorrowland, he’s shown his diversity as an artist throughout the summer. His most recent release “Sinners” gives fans a look at some of his more downtempo interests, while his D.O.D collaboration “Don’t Wait” is a proper return to some jacking club music. We caught up on all of these tracks and more in his interview.
 
 
Can you highlight three tracks or artists included and why they stand out to you?
1. I love everything Funkin Matt does! Super creative electro house music with a progressive edge!
2. I opened the mix with the Fatboy Slim remix of “Devil In Me.” Such a dope soulful vocal, and Fatboy gives it the funk – perfect for starting the party!!!!
3. “Chicken Dippas” by Riton really takes the original chicken lips track and injects it with some balls!!! Fucking love the synthy weirdness he’s added to it as well!!!

How do “Dreamer” and “Sinners” fit your musical interests, influences, and motivations at the moment?
Well, I guess they’re both more song based dance records rather than just being club bangers. I started out life as a piano player, so I just kinda felt like it was time to inject a bit more of that vibe into my records.

What was your role in the songwriting process for “Sinners” and how’d the vocal factor into the production?
I’d been working with Daisy on a bunch of other records, and one day she showed me the “Sinners” acappella. I was like, I NEED THIS. So she sent it over and I put it together with a piano riff I had laying around. It was important to me to keep the production as stripped back and organic as possible to let the vocal shine!
 

Can you compare and contrast your production approach towards a more downtempo vocal track versus a club record?
For me, club records need to be super functional and less about emotion, whereas a vocal record is ALL about the feels!

D.O.D is a producer on fire at the moment! What was it like working with Dan on “Don’t Wait”?
First I gotta say, he’s my fav dance producer at the moment – making so much fire right now! Anywho... this record was A LONG time in the works. He’d hit me up sending me some demos last year and I was like, “Fuck I really like X tune, but maybe I could tweak the breakdown a little…” Then I was fucking slow at getting back to him on the breakdown, until a few months ago when I ended up completely redoing the breakdown. So yeah, I sent it back then he ended up completely redoing his original drop!! So now the song is a totally different one from the original demo he’d sent me. That’s the great thing about collabs though –  you never know how your original idea is going to end up.
 

Your Tomorrowland set featured some massive IDs and we have to ask about some! What can you tell us about the track mixed with the “Never Be Like You” acappella, looks and sounds like you were playing it back in 2014?!
Oh yeah, I’d had that for a while, but never quite found the right vocal to put on it so I haven’t release it yet... BUT I think 2018 is the year hahaha!

What can you tell us about the one with the “making me lose my mind” vocal sample?
That’s a new one from Chris Lake. Pure fire. I love that shit!!!!
