Tomas Barfod hardly need any introduction; lately the Danish dj, producer and musician has made a gigantic mark on the world map of contemporary electronic music, and has really underlined his status both nationally and internationally.
Tomas has played drums since he was 10 years old, but at one point in his teens he bought a recordplayer, a computer and a sampler and since the late nineties he has been doing a variety of electronic produced music, both as a solo artist but also in projects like Filur, Jatoma and WhoMadeWho and on several different labels (Get Physical, Mirau, Kompakt, Kitsuné and latest Friends of Friends).
He has remixed acts like Shakira, Brandy, Franz Ferdinand the Japanese artist Ken Hirai, last mentioned sold more than 1 mio copies and resulted in none less than 4 platinum records for Tomas and his partner in Filur, Kasper Bjørke.
Recently Tomas Barfod moved to Los Angeles where he became part of the Friends Of Friends-family alongside Schlomo and Salva, and on this label Barfod just released the full-length album “Salton Sea” which has received stunning reviews and labels such as “Best New Track” (Pitchfork).
Now Barfod is back in Denmark, though, and we are very happy to welcome him back to Trailerpark Festival.
