This guy is a FIND! I’ve been getting to know this character via twitter. Always outspoken in a good way about the present day EDM scene – You can’t help but be intrigued. Tommy is one of those artists that reminds me of a futuristic HIPPIE DJ/Producer that brings that PLUR vibe to the present. He loves what he does – He actually is good at what he does – and his message to the masses is something that is important for the culture.

Tommy makes dance music fun and important again with this attitude he shares with his social media audience. Influenced by equal parts of Kraftwerk, AC/DC, and Farley Jackmaster Funk, mid-west rave legend and Brooklyn, NY resident Tommie Sunshine is constantly raising the bar. As an artist, remixer, producer, vocalist, radio jock, label owner, DJ and songwriter – this legendary hybrid of live performance and DJ sets he performs all over the globe has been putting sunshine in a lot of EDM lovers lives. Need big-room house mixes of Sarah Conner or Andy Hunter? Check. How about a rock-house hybrid for The Stills? Got it. Gary Glitter shuffle-beat for Good Charlotte? Not a problem. And lets not get started on the weird quirky techno. His studio collaborations have included Felix Da Housecat, James Murphy, Arthur Baker, Mylo and DJ Hell; As an established remixer, Tommie (alongside long time collaborator Mark Verbos) has been requested to retouch work from a diverse list that includes Louis XVI, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Good Charlotte, Kid Alex, Princess Superstar, Elvis Presley, Fallout Boy, Gang of Four, My Robot Friend, The Killers, Da Brat, P.O.D., Fischerspooner, The Faint, Kill Hannah, Ima Robot, Ladytron and Avril Lavigne.
