Biography

Language: English

Trevor began DJing from an early age but his career really began when he started up the Madhatter sound system, putting on big warehouse parties. It wasn’t long before he found himself DJing on the then pirate Kiss FM on the graveyard shift. Continuing his heavy DJ schedule he really made his name playing at the infamous Soul II Soul Sunday night jam at the Africa Centre. The friendship he built up with front man Jazzy B culminated in them working together setting up the second Soul II Soul shop in London.

In 1990 Kiss FM eventually became legal and Trevor was offered a daytime show as well as a directorship. After ten years with Kiss FM; 1996 saw him move over to Radio 1 to present The Rhythm Nation show. After just a year he began a second show on Saturday afternoons as well as winning the award for DJ of the year at the MOBO awards.

Trevor’ passion and drive have enabled him to be one of the champions of R’n’B music in the UK, and his increasing profile and has made him a respected and valued figure in the music industry.
