Tommy Trash, Kiesza share ‘Tectonic’ first tie-up

Tommy Trash and Kiesza have teamed up for their first single, “Tectonic.” Arriving via deadmau5‘s newly anointed hau5trap label, the one-off doesn’t just extend Tommy Trash’s return, but also serves as a “true representation” of where he is headed as an artist, he explained:

“A few years ago I found myself in a bit of a pickle mentally, spiritually, emotionally, creatively and it took a lot of work to get out of that hole. But I can say unequivocally without the experience of going away and properly working on myself, I’d still be stuck. Ayahuasca was a big part of that process for me. This single ‘Tectonic’ is the culmination of that work and a true representation of where I’m headed as an artist. I wrote the instrumental in Bali while I was away on my sabbatical. I loved working with Kiesza on it – she is an incredible lyricist with unrivaled vocal chops. I’m super grateful to be working with her and excited for what the future will bring…”

Kiesza also faced hardship in 2017, after a serious car accident required her to take time to physically recover. After Trash and Kiesza’s respective retreats from the release ring, “Tectonic” finds them rising like phoenixes to enjoy a co-occurring musical rebirth. Kiesza said of the track,

“I began ‘Tectonic’ as a folk song on my mother’s grand piano and Tommy Trash took the song to a level I could have never imagined. I love how the unique combination of the deep poetic lyrics and haunting melody combines so effortlessly with Tommy’s energetic and driving electronic house music, to create the most beautiful sense of melancholy. I’m blown away by his creativity and talent as a producer and definitely can not wait to create more music with him!”

“Tectonic” marks Tommy Trash’s fourth production of 2021, following “Can’t Say No” with No Mana, “Emergency” with Yolanda Be Cool, and hau5trap’s debut release, “hiiigh” with Daisy Guttridge.
