TOMM¥ €A$H born into that moment, when it’s finally time for Estonia to build a culture from scratch after the stranglehold of the Soviet regime. The country is still tightly bound to its years of Russian culture, so this boy grows up in a predominantly Russian ‘hood in Tallinn. The skies are as grey as the apartment blocks and the locals are as lifeless as their clothing. A horrifying echo of routine silences the streets. As he grows up, he listens to Kanye West sitting on his bed. He goes to school but he’s an outsider and a loner. He finds a sense of freedom through dance, then through fashion and finally through hip hop.
