Coming into his own at all of 14-years in Boulder, Colorado, Trevor Simpson’s obsession with electronic music production led him to his first set of turntables, and his destiny. Trevor became hooked on all things dance music, ultimately guiding him into a lifelong commitment to music and entertainment. His teen years were spent perfecting his craft and from his experiences, his first brainchild “Torque Productions,” an underground event company and clothing label, was born. In 1998, Torque Productions relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area where it has thrived to its fullest potential.
San Francisco, infamous for its rich history of the saucy underground and all things taboo, has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to entertainment. Her fast growing nightclub and underground party scene opened the doors to a unique opportunity for Trevor. He gained residencies for numerous clubs, such as the legendary 1015 Folsom, Fluid, and Mixed Elements productions with quickness. In 2005, Trevor branched out into the FM radio world as the music director for Energy 92.7 FM, San Francisco’s Pure Dance radio station. His daily “mix at 6” became Bay Area commuters’ carpool companion during rush hour. Trevor has since moved to San Francisco’s top rated station CBS Radio KMVQ 99.7 Now FM. Trevor’s work with KMVQ has given electronic music a voice on pop radio waves as well as monopolizing the title of sole Bay Area station for house music. Trevor is also the Program Director for Pulse KMVQ HD2, the Bay Area’s only radio station strictly dedicated to electronic music. Along with The House Nation Crew and St. John every Saturday night, Trevor hosts his one of a kind “Clubbers Commute” that allows late night thrill seekers to keep the party going even after the club doors are closed. Such successes have earned Trevor merits like 7×7 Magazine’s “Best Party in a Box” award.
His hard work and dedication has allowed him to head the house music revolution, and to be an inspiration for the newest generation of club goers. Always on the heels of the evolution of electronic music, Trevor has gained much recognition and is highly sought after for remixes by esteemed artists including Lady Gaga, LMFAO, M.I.A., Far East Movement, Kaskade, Jason Derulo, The Cataracs, Dev, and Sylvia Tosun. His unrivalled talent and creative ability is irrefutable in his mix of Sylvia Tosun’s #1 Billboard smash “Push n Pull.” Trevor’s newest commissioned project is remixing “Fire In Your New Shoes” for Kaskade adding verses from The Cataracs and Dev.
Trevor has used his residency at world famous Ruby Skye, San Francisco’s premiere nightclub and concert venue, to launch his newest progressive project World Town: a fusion of audio, visual, and cultural collaboration that brings global awareness to underground new school music. Incomparable to any other event in San Francisco, World Town is a new type of audiovisual party that awakens the senses for a full mind-body experience. World Town is a collaborative creation with his fiancé Mariam Shojaee. By reeling in highly sought after talent such as Tiesto, Lady Gaga, David Guetta, Kaskade, Fedde Le Grand, Luciana,
DJ Chuckie, Mischa Daniels, Funkerman, Stonebridge, Morgan Page, JJ Flores and Steve Smooth, Dave Dresden, Andy Caldwell, and DJ Pauly D at the inception of their popularity, World Town is dominating the SF party scene.
Trevor has been faithfully signed to Ultra Records, and has produced four top selling compilation CD’s. Trevor is collaborating with DJ E-Rock on his highly anticipated 5th compilation, which is due to drop in Summer 2011. This album includes his first original single “Addicted to That 808” featuring sharp and talented artists Enzyme Dynamite and Nayelli. With the release of this original single comes the premiere of his label, World Town Records. “Addicted to That 808” is already showing signs of success worldwide, and this highly intoxicating track is only a taste of what’s to come from Trevor.
San Francisco’s Trevor Simpson stands tall next to the worlds’ elite. His fluid ability to transcend the ever-growing underground rave scene, San Francisco’s most prestigious nightclubs, and major market radio keeps him reigning supreme as the electronic dance music king. With his forward thinking and dominating drive, this San Francisco transplant has earned his space and made a name for himself in this diverse city. Trevor Simpson has imprinted his signature style on the scene and will continue to add layers to its rich culture. San Francisco’s electro-dance mastermind’s future is bright; nothing and no one can dim this star’s shine.
