Tommy Trash (born Thomas Olsen) debuted in 2006 and quickly emerged as a high-profile electro-house DJ and producer through a steady supply of remixes and his own releases.
In 2006, the native of Queensland, Australia, along with Goodwill, remixed Sugiurumn's "Star Baby," but 2007 was a breakout year for Trash. Signed to Ministry of Sound Australia, he released a handful of singles -- some of which were collaborations with Goodwill, as well as with Tom Piper -- and remixed tracks by the likes of Green Velvet, the Veronicas, and Armand Van Helden. He also mixed the first volume in Ministry of Sound's Electro-House Sessions series. His 2008 was as prolific, while 2009 was a banner year that culminated with an ARIA Award nomination in the category of Best Dance Release (for "Need Me to Stay"). As he continued to release his own work on Ministry of Sound, Dim Mak, and Fool's Gold, he also maintained his remarkable amount of remixing duties. Moby, Zedd, Timbaland, Swedish House Mafia, and Deadmau5 all released his work. "Reload," a collaboration with Sebastian Ingrosso, was released in September 2012 and eventually worked its way to number three on the U.K. singles chart (as well as number four on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart). ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
