Where Joey Youngman, the one-time party kid from San Luis Obispo, CA and another-time househead old soul, has been electro-house's dark (work) horse, Weekend in America, his debut full-length for Ultra Music, is Wolfgang Gartner becoming dance music's one-man parallel universe, outpacing electro-house and outdoing himself. Gartner's work ethic is mythical amongst even his most storied contemporaries: Make music all week. Play it out all weekend. His DJ sets - and this speaks to a combination of prolificness, personal taste and a proven track record - are almost entirely made up of edits of his own work. Then again, when you spend 20 hours a day working on music.
Fist in the air and unmistakable locks at large, Tommy Trash is not your stereotypical Dance icon. With an armoury of his own carefully created anthems, he has thrown to one side the clean-shaven image of EDM idols. Outside of his party-hard stage presence, the Grammy Award nominated producer's approach to mind-blowing music remains as heartfelt as they come. Having released on labels ranging from Axtone to Fool's Gold, and from Refune to Mau5trap, including 2 successive #1 hits on Beatport, every new installment of his poignant floor filling productions lay testament to the pride the Aussie takes in his blazing musical legacy.
