There’s no one quite like Tommy Trash. With his signature locks and manic stage presence, he’s firmly established himself as one of the most iconic characters in dance music. But more importantly, Tommy’s got the tunes to match, effortlessly firing off festival anthems and mainstream hits (like “Reload,” his collaboration that’s clocked nearly 50 million YouTube views) next to electro experiments and cutting-edge collabs with the likes of A-Trak and Kill The Noise. We’re excited to welcome Tommy back to Fool’s Gold with the new Luv U Giv EP, out now. This three song EP is a showcase for an ecstatic, 80s-inspired take on the Trashed groove that fans know and love.

Producer-singer-songwriter-DJ-everything else rhêtorík bares his soul on ‘Behind Closed Doors.’ The EP is a sum of his whimsy and his triumphs, a showcase of his insecurities, but also a promise to himself and to his fans that there will be light in their lives. Across five songs and in 20 minutes, rhêtorík makes quick work of what hurts him and how he’s learned to heal himself.
“I took a year from 24 to 25, where I went completely stone-cold sober, really got into the vlogging, and just took a year of internal reflection,” he told DJBooth. His reflections led him to question himself and his motives, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’ is the immediate product of his weighty introspection. The indie-meets-EDM influences on the project undoubtedly move music forward, but it’s rhêtorík’s hopeful message that makes him a truly enduring artist.
