Head banging, unmistakable locks at large and fist in the air, Tommy Trash is not your stereotypical dance music icon. Armed with an arsenal of his own carefully created anthems, he has rejected the clean-shaven no-nonsense image of many a peer. Tommy’s work hard play hard antics have carved him a unique position in a scene in desperate need of rebels. Outside his party-hard stage presence, the Grammy and VMA nominated producer’s approach to mind-blowing music remains as heartfelt as they come. With Platinum records around the world, singles on labels ranging from Axtone to Fool’s Gold, from Refune to Mau5trap, and from Spinnin’ to Owsla and Boys Noize, every new installment of his diverse, floor-filling productions lay testament to the pride the Aussie takes in his blazing, musical legacy. It’s no wonder that the likes of Rolling Stone and MTV have marked him out as ‘One To Watch’.
From the most prestigious nightspots around the globe and the ever-expanding global festivals that he so seamlessly conquers to the grimiest warehouse parties, there’s no stage too grand or miniscule for him to tailor his adrenaline-fueled sets to. Sometimes that sort of energy and charisma can be difficult to capture, but in the case of Tommy Trash he has created a trilogy of music videos from his upcoming EP, Luv U Giv, that not are only ambitious counterparts to his music but also works of art in their own right.
The trifecta of “Luv U Giv,” “Body Movin’” and “Me & U” are an exceptional collection of stop-motion videos that are at times irreverent and fantastically risqué. Possibly the best part is that the story is completely told by using plastic dolls. Each video has a unique part of the story to tell about Luv Island and a group of sailors shipwrecked on this far away land. They are not alone, however, as the native Sirens don’t take so kindly to their uninvited guests. A bloody battle ensues and just when all seems lost on Luv Island a head banging castaway with unmistakable locks appears on the horizon…
In line with his successive industry triumphs, the road ahead looks set to comfortably accommodate the rare energy and characteristics that Tommy continues to bring to dance music. This incredible trilogy has a little bit of everything, and we are certain that programmers and viewers alike will flock like wildfire to these three clips.
