A mainstay of the Portland and Seattle scenes since the late 90’s, Pacific Northwest native Trevor Vichas has entertained audiences with his mesmerizing blend of house, garage, and techno meets jazz, disco, and hip hop; warm rolling basslines, hypnotic chord progressions, and soulful vocals that speak with a message of love. With his production reflecting early influences of both classic Chicago and Detroit house and techno, it’s not surprising that his love of all things funk, soul, hip-hop, and disco pulse through him; giving his unique sound the infectious ingredients that make you want to jump up and get out on the floor.
Trevor has held regular residencies in Portland and Seattle since 2005; he has traveled from Seattle to San Francisco to Honolulu to Miami pushing his sound to broader audiences and gaining popularity across the country, yet keeps his feet planted firmly in his own backyard by contributing to the progression of his local scene through booking national and international acts, further placing the Northwest on the map of “don’t miss” places to experience performing. Trevor has contributed guest mixes for some notable podcasts, including UglyHouse, House Salad, Jacking Beatz Collective, 5Magazine New Mix Mondays, and HAWT Music’s HAWTCast. Trevor currently maintains a residency on Chicago House FM and broadcasts both his personal sessions and live events on the Florida-based radio station.
