In the beginning there was House Music…

Trevor began his DJing career at 16 and quickly earnt a reputation for his taste and knowledge of both UK and American Soul Funk and Jazz. In 1983 through his European tastes and connections, Trevor was invited to play at Amnesia in Ibiza, to spin his now mixed style of dance music. On Trevor’s return and throughout the mid eighties he teamed up with long time friend Paul Oakenfold to set up a club called “The Funhouse” playing similar sounds from his Ibiza experience, alongside the popular Hip Hop and Go-Go sounds of that time.

This was followed by the formation of his infamous “The Project” club and was now joined by co-resident, DJ Carl Cox. The Project Club was strongly influenced by BALEARIC BEATS and also by the new sounds coming in from the Detroit and Chicago, House music.

In the summer of ‘87 Trevor took “The Project Club” concept to Ibiza where together with Ian St Paul he opened a Bar in San Antonio, playing to a very mixed crowd that was attracted by the then unusual combination of New Beat, Indie, Acid and House music Trevor had incorporated into his unique style. This later became known within the music press as “Balearic Beat”.

In 1988 Trevor’s influence over fellow friends and DJ’s ignited a chain reaction in London. Nicky Holloway, Paul Oakenfold, Johnny Walker and Danny Rampling were all early visitors to Trevor’s nights both at The Project Club in Streatham and Ibiza and were inspired to change the face of the London & World Club Scene by launching seminal nights such as The Future, Spectrum, Shoom, The Land Of Oz, Rage, Enter the Dragon and Trip.

Following this period Trevor could be seen playing at all over the UK, including the spectacular one-off “M25 Orbital live events” such as Sunrise, Energy, World Dance and Biology, which in turn led to long-term residencies and appearances at all major festivals like Bestival, Glastonbury, Burning Man (USA), Farr Festival and more.

Trevor has been working recently on his own Club nights, monthly residencies in London “The Sound of Higher Ground”, and also host other major club nights with some of the worlds renowned DJ’s and club land’s most respected promoters: DJ’s Danny Krivit, Derrick May, Franck Roger, DJ Deep, Robert Owens, Matty Heilbronn, DJ Pierre, Phil Asher, Danny Rampling and Stuart Patterson.

Trevor is also very active and constant in raising awareness & money for a number of  charities working as an ambassador for:
