Unpacking the layers of Tommy Cash you'll find a genuine admiration for the iconic three stripes Adidas, equestrianism, Russian carpets and Kanye West - all of which construct the conceptual artist who is capable of smashing preconceptions and transcending boundaries of sexuality, genres and history.

Born in 91, on the last year of the Soviet Union Tommy Cash experienced a blend of the Baltic ghetto and the lingering Russian heritage whilst growing up. Turning to art for self expression he experimented across dancing hip-hop and street-art, finally to arrive to his latest conquest - music. His creativity derives from the cultural capital of post-Soviet sceneries and the sounds of leading figures of western rap music. Unpacking the layers of Tommy Cash you'll find a genuine admiration for the iconic three stripes Adidas, equestrianism, Russian carpets and Kanye West - all of which construct the conceptual artist who is capable of smashing preconceptions and transcending boundaries of sexuality, genres and history.

Since the early stages of his musical career Tommy has been strongly present in the underground rave scene. Pioneering the post-Soviet sound he joins the flow of uncompromising artists of today’s musical landscape.

His first release came in the form of "Euros Dollars Yeniz" mixtape in November 2014, followed by a collaboration with the ultimate Russian villain gang, Little Big. Though it wasn't until the release of "Winaloto" in the summer of 2016 Tommy's craft was fully introduced to the world. The freakishly hypnotic video of "Winaloto" produced and art directed by Anna-Lisa Himma and directed by Tommy himself has quickly amassed millions of plays and received heat from the likes of Highsnobiety, NME, and VICE. Gaining critical acclaim, it brought home "Video of the Year" award at Estonian Music Awards.

With the release of the single "Surf" the creative duo of Anna-Lisa and Tommy explore a next level of a hyper sexual vision all set in the Eastern reality. Premiering on Highsnobiety the new single reached new highs of fan’s support, climbing over a million of views in the first month.

The next trip in Tommy Cash's world arrives at Pussy Money Weed single - produced by A.G Cook, and accompanied by a highly anticipated video - directed by Tommy, produced, art directed and styled by Anna-Lisa Himma. The videographic wonderland of Pussy Money Weed takes you to post-apocalyptic sceneries where an otherworldly gang join Tommy's crew and show their swagger in chaotic arrangements. In this dystopian parallel universe "you can still be hot even when you are dancing on blades in a deserted zoo on Mars" as Tommy describes.

After a string of a full-house European tour, 2017 Summer's festival season has seen Tommy taking over stages at Sonar, Glastonbury, Electric Castle, Marsatac, Best Kept Secret, MS Dockville with "genuinely arresting" shows as reviewed by Noisey.
