Tommie Sunshine (born Thomas Lorello; March 26, 1971) is a record producer, remixer, DJ and songwriter of electronic music from Chicago currently living in Brooklyn, New York. He is perhaps best known for creating dance remixes to popular rock and alternative songs, by artists such as Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, Good Charlotte, Hellogoodbye, Mindless Self Indulgence, P.O.D., Kelis, Kill Hannah, Shiny Toy Guns, and many more. He presently works alongside The Disco Fries and also as a trio with Bart B More and RipTidE under the name Horsepower. In the past he has collaborated with artists such as Felix Da Housecat, Miss Kittin, Marc Romboy, Mark Verbos, Tomcraft, The Aston Shuffle, James Murphy and DJ Hell.
In 2006, Tommie Sunshine remixed the hit songs from the album "You'll Rebel to Anything," "Shut Me Up" and "Straight to Video" by "Mindless Self Indulgence" for their EP "Shut Me Up (The Remixes + 3)." In the same year, he also remixed another hit song by the same band, "What Do They Know," for the band's other EP, "Another Mindless Rip Off."
In 2007, Sunshine released a compilation album on the Ultra Records label as part of their dance compilation CD series titled Ultra.Rock Remixed containing some of his most popular remixes. The follow-up mix CD, Relax This Won't Hurt, was released October 2008. In 2008, he remixed Yoko Ono's new version of Give Peace A Chance for a 12" on Twisted, which reached the number 1 position on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play Chart. He was also involved in the music production for Konami's Dance Dance Revolution game, DDR X. He contributed two of his new songs, along with his "Brooklyn Fire Re-Touch" mix of Wine Red by The Hush Sound. He re-affiliated himself with "Mindless Self Indulgence," remixing their hit song from their "If" album, "Never Wanted to Dance".
In 2010, Sunshine remixed Amanda Lear's new single I'm Coming Up. Two years later, he created a megamix of Katy Perry singles from the album Teenage Dream. Named Tommie Sunshine's Megasix Smash-Up, it was featured on the re-release.
