What has Austrailian DJ Tommy Trash been up to these days? Other than traveling around the globe to play at the main stages for acclaimed festivals like Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Coachella, Tommy Trash is set to release a brand new series of full-length compilation record as Ministry of Sound's inaugural 'Inspired' series.
The concept behind the newly minted 'Inspired' series is simple; it looks to document inspirational artists on their journey to the top through a series of records. As the first edition to be chosen by Ministry of Sound for this series, Tommy Trash's own full-length compilation will deliver a uniquely personal feel that most full-length releases fail to offer.
Set to debut on March 16th, his series will contain 29 tracks over two CDs which will feature some of his earliest remixes and inspirations. As a fusion of old and new, the first disc will cover 'Past Inspirations' with his second featuring his 'Present and Future inspirations.' Tommy explains that most of the tracks from the first disc is from 2001-2007, which were the most critical years in his self-discovery phase. He included his biggest inspirations from that time, including producers like Deadmau5, Eric Prydz, Stuart Price and Booka Shade to name a few.
In lieu of this series, Trash will also include three fresh and exclusive tracks, including a bootleg of Cascade vs. The End. This new full-length album is hotly anticipated as Trash's signature style and sounds composes of high-energy dance floor tracks. This guy has a US Grammy nomination for his remix of Deadmau5's 'The Veldt' and a Swedish Grammy nomination for his platinum selling collab with Sebastian Ingrosso for 'Reload,' Tommy Trash is on fire with his successful career.
Expect this full-length compilation series to give fans a more personal look at Trash's life as an artist and the sounds that have influenced his career today. Tommy Trash notes,
"It's really good to take a step back and look at what music informed the tracks myself and probably quite a lot of my peers make today. I think it's healthy for people's understanding of what they’re listening to."
