It is fair to say that Australia has been somewhat slow on the mark as far as Electronic music is concerned. Tommy Trash then, was sent to slay any misconception that there wasn’t some promising noise at the other end of the globe. Now a bonafide member of the Electro House elite with bangers for Cr2, Stealth, Great Stuff and Ministry of Sound, there has been little sign of the Aussie producer hitting brakes for 2011.
Building on the mechanically butch original laid down by the Swedish House Mafia and Pendulum side project Knife Party, Trash brings the burly Electro House vibes that have sealed his name to the big-time with notable success. Croaking bass and those all-too-familiar pitch-defying leads take a u-turn on the original track’s relatively consumer-safe aura, packing a well-deserved punch into this already popular late coming club anthem. Though somewhat lacking the stamina of previous offerings boasted by this outrageously loud Aussie producer, there is a certain pulse to his cut of Antidote that was previously lacking, signalling that this transition to the realms of big name remixes may be the first instalment of an extended legacy for Tommy Trash.
The Tommy Trash remix of ‘Antidote’ is out now along with two slightly edited dub mixes.
