Bundy boy nominated for Grammy award

UPDATE, 6.30PM:

THE father of a former Kepnock State High student is thrilled with his son's success in the international music industy after he was nominated for a Grammy.

Neville Olsen said he was incredibly proud and a little stunned when his son Thomas Olsen - aka DJ Tommy Trash -  called to give him the news.

"You always hope to see your children succeed but when they achieve something like this it's still a bit out of the blue," he said.

"Thomas only moved to Los Angeles in February so his success over there has come fairly quickly."

Neville said Thomas's love of music began when he was five years old and he was an accomplished pianist and trumpeter before focussing on electric house music.

"Thomas has worked with a number of well known artists and produced music for Ministry of Sound," he said.

"He works very hard and sometimes he's in four or five different cities in one week."

IT SEEMS Bundy-bred talent is taking the world by storm with Thomas Olsen - aka DJ Tommy Trash - being nominated for a Grammy award in the US.

The nomination for Best Pre-Mixed Recording (Non Classical) is for Olsen's remix of the Deadmau5 featuring Chris James song The Veldt.

Olsen, an electro house DJ, record producer and remixer, is currently living in Los Angeles, California.

Olsen was nominated for an ARIA award in 2009 for Best Dance Record.

His work has been internationally recognised with more than 50 productions so far and he has worked with Ministry of Sound and created remixes for performing artists including Armand Van Helden, Green Velvet and EDX.

Olsen is one of only two Australians to be nominated for the February Grammy awards, with Gotye's duet with Kimbra, Somebody That I Used to Know, being nominated for Record of the Year.

The news comes hot on the heels of Bundy-bred band DZ Deathrays winning an ARIA award for Best Hard Rock / Heavy Metal Album for thrash pop album Bloodstreams.
