With his soul deeply rooted far beneath the mainstream, Trench brings more than a style to the decks — he brings personality.
As a regular attendee of many now legendary hotspots, this Motor City native experienced the birth of Detroit’s audio subculture firsthand. Inspired by early fusion of House, Techno and Industrial, mixing records became his passion and he has been dedicated to this urban art form for over two decades.
Now a veteran on the decks, his experimental nature continues to set him apart. Trench is an intense performer and his style incredibly diverse. By blending multiple genres, unexpected arrangements are delivered with originality and power.
Beyond the tables, Trench has embraced music production. With several records under his belt, his love for this craft continues to grow and several titles are poised for vinyl release.
For the last eight years, Trench has been a family member of the independent record label Subject Detroit where he serves as visual liaison. While contributing to the growth of this unique company, he has worked diligently to create impact and preserve true underground culture.
In addition, Trench also provides design services for industry peers. An extensive list of performers and labels have welcomed his abilities as a graphics professional.
Projects have included works for Aaron-Carl, Mike Huckaby, Terrence Parker, Juan Atkins, Buzz Goree, Surgeon, Brian Gillespie, DEQ, NDR, Beretta Music, Mixworks, Throw Records, Visillusion, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Lumina, Pure Plastic and Wallshaker.
Trench currently resides in Detroit and Seattle. Domestic and international bookings are maintained by REAL Booking Artist Management at www.bookrealdjs.com
