Leading electro house trailblazer Tommy Trash is back on track with fresh remix duties for British drum & bass mogul Sub Focus. His take on “Endorphins” respectfully balances the striking vocal play of Alex Clare with his own peak time get-up, striking melodic yet adrenaline-fueled harmony in face of European dance music’s more commercially viable properties. True to form, Tommy maintains his stance as the thunder from down under with another finely tuned remix to see him comfortably into the summer festival season.
After taking a 6 month hiatus from releasing Trashed Radio, Tommy Trash returns with a blistering hour of his patented electro house charm. Opening with the recently released re-edit of his own hit “Monkey See Monkey Do,” Mr. Trash serves up a buffet of tasty electro treats. Nom De Strip’s “Techno Saturday,” Baskerville’s “Checker” and Surkin’s “Canblaster” are all on the menu, laid out alongside the lesser known James Frew’s “Depth” and Tommy’s own remix of Sub Focus’s “Endorphins.” Ditch that cup of coffee and let the latest episode of Trashed Radio kickstart your day.
For the last two weekends in the California desert Tommy Trash has been serving up this delicious morsel under the heat of the Sahara tent at Coachella. A Frankensteining of his two latest productions “Tuna Melt” and “Truffle Pig,”Tommy’s newest “Tuna Truffle” boasts all the charm of both tracks without a single sacrifice. A thank you to his 200,000 fans, Tommy is serving this one up today for free – a tasty new snack out of his electro lunchbox.
After re-editing his cult classic “Monkey See, Monkey Do,” Tommy Trash brings back the stuffed simian for his latest music video of the edit. The futuristic feel good vibes of Tommy’s work are brought to life by the bright blue chimp’s clumsy mannerisms and space age setting.
The lush green grass of The Empire Polo Club grounds swelled with half-naked twenty-somethings, bustling and buzzing like tributaries of people cutting through the crowd, flowing forth to the each of Coachella‘s six stages. The massive tents provided little relief from the desert’s sweltering heat, but underneath the Yuma tent, where Luciano would close that evening, was an air-conditioned safe haven. For those daring enough to brave the heat, the Sahara tent presented a spread of talent, including Boys Noize and Skrillex as the tandem Dog Blood. Our first day spent in Indio was defined by the Sahara and Yuma tents – and they will likely define the rest of our stay here.
The Coachella Arts and Music Festival has been host to some of the most groundbreaking talent in music throughout its 14 year history. Although relatively modest, this year’s electronic dance music presence at Coachella is the largest since its 1999 debut. Staying true to form, Goldenvoice’s bookings represent some of the most exciting artists in electronic music today – a group whose talents extend across a broad swathe of sound and styles. With the 2013 lineup heavily expanding its electronic offerings, we felt it only appropriate to share our must-see picks from the viewpoint of four fans heading out to Indio for the type of musical experience only three days in the desert could provide.
Sub Focus unveiled his latest creation, “Endorphins,” a few weeks back, and now BBC Radio 1 has aired the first preview to the forthcoming Tommy Trash remix. Aside from his ”Monkey See Monkey Do Re-Edit,“ Trash has been a bit quite on the release front. Thankfully, his remix to “Endorphins” does not disappoint. Bustling with familiar, steam engine-like synths, Trash tastefully enhances Alex Clare’s uplifting vocals and delivers what is sure to be a well-received remix. Though no release date was announced on the show, the original “Endorphins” will be released on May 26th, and the Tommy Trash remix can’t be far behind.

Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash‘s mega-hit known as “Reload” has dominated festivals, nightclubs, and everywhere in between over the past year. Today, it has officially become even bigger as Pete Tong premiered its vocal mix as his Essential New Tune. The tandem call on John Martin to replicate the singing he’s produced on “Save The World” and “Don’t You Worry Child,” taking the title literally for the song’s lyrics.
You’ve seen photographs online after parties that were absolutely bananas. Most likely, you’ve also seen the ones taking those photos, or you’ve seen the flash, and the one responsible has vanished. Camera in hand, I’m one of the many dark figures running through nightclubs, squeezing through groups of people packed in like sardines, trying constantly to find the best spot to capture that one moment when the pyrotechnics erupt and the crowd goes wild. Often times, these seemingly endless treks across clubs are fruitless, and we feel compelled to move again…and again…to chase the perfect shot. It’s always a challenge; every venue is different in its own unique ways. Having just wrapped up photographing some incredible shows during Miami Music Week 2013, here are some of the ways I’ve learned to navigate the insanity that has become EDM photography on the ground and on assignment.
