With a passport full of stamps, scorching hot exclusive selections and the technical skills to match, TREi is one of the leading lights of the New Zealand drum and bass scene. Internationally known as both a producer and a DJ, over the last seven years, TREi has made his mark, both at home and abroad, particularly across Europe, where he is fast becoming a favourite for those who know.
Based in Wellington, New Zealand, TREi’s seamless mixing and anthemic productions have seen him linked to some of the finest d&b record labels, club nights, DJ’s and producers on the planet. With the likes of Samurai Music, Commercial Suicide, Shogun Ltd, Uprising Recordings, Concord Dawn, Andy C, Klute, Friction and Black Sun Empire in the mix, in 2011, his presence is impossible to ignore.
With his musical roots lying in guitar, TREi recently dusted off the six-string to play as part of fellow New Zealand d&b icon’s The Upbeats live show. Inspired by this new platform and his experiences performing internationally, TREi is on the verge of elevating into an exciting new creative echelon.
Current projects include collaborations with The Upbeats, Concord Dawn, Chris SU, Dose and emerging talent Johnny Hooves. In tandem, TREi is also finalizing releases on Viper Recordings, Uprising Records and working towards his second album.
Focused on making nightclub ceilings drip with sweat; and writing the tunes that we all party to, TREi is laser-etching himself into the history books; and future proofing drum and bass in the process. Hold tight.
