TRUS'ME

With his love for music tracing way back to an early age by dabbling with various instruments and then moving on to develop a passion for record collecting, Trus’me found his calling after learning the art of mixing and sample digging. Surrounded by the heads of Manchester and its deep rooted music scene, one couldn’t deny that it was an effortless task to be exposed to good music from all genres, thus explaining his constantly evolving tastes as evident in his eclectic DJ sets as well as in his uniquely, diverse productions. “Like bookends some 12’s will work with both the beginning and the end of the night, such is the classy sampling from Trus’me” (Peter Nicholson, XLR8R).

The much reputed CD sampler “Nards” that was responsible for initialing releases on Chicago’s Still Music label, inevitably sparked off Trus’me’s promising musical career. Seeing support from respected names such as Ashley Beedle, Juan Atkins, Mad Matts, Gilles Peterson and Chez Damier plus his productions selling out at record stores from Manchester to Tokyo, led to the highly successful release of his debut album, “Working Nights”, on Fat City Recordings, that’s hailed by most to be a timeless album, still finding devotees to this day.

Not one to rest on his laurels, the label Prime Numbers was set up and quickly gained an unfaltering reputation for highly collectable and exceptional music from artistes such as Move D, Actress, Linkwood, Fudge Fingas, Motorcity Drum Ensemble; all artistes that fit the ethos and style that Trus’me continues to carry a torch for. In 2009, his highly anticipated follow-up album, “In The Red” that featured the likes of Chez, Damier, Amp Fiddler and Dam Funk further cemented his place in the House scene and set off a flurry remixes for acts such as LCD Soundsystem, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Alton Miller, Anthony Shake Shakir and more, including non-stop touring to clubs and festivals alike in Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe, North America, South America and of course, in his backyard, the city of Manchester where it all began.

Nick Sinna

Firmly rooted in Manchester and surrounded by the city’s music heavies, Nick Sinna cut his teeth listening to Hip Hop before delving headlong into the 90’s Drum & Bass scene.

Paying special attention to releases on labels like LTJ Bukem’s "Good Looking" and Goldie’s "Metalheadz" paved the way to really discovering House and Techno.

His early influences ranged from the likes of Drexciya, Stacey Pullen, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, UR, Virgo4, Metroplex, KMS and Chicago inspired beats. This is evident in his deep, melodic DJ sets, with each track flowing into one another, creating different scenes of varying intensity but keeping it all relevant with a solid groove.

Likewise, Nick’s production sensibilities essentially consist of finding a hypnotic vibe and then building around it, using MPC 60 programming layered with keyboards and drum machines.

His recent and significant releases on Prime Numbers clearly display his fresh approach using classic interpretations, reflecting current production influences like Sigha, Shed, Peter Van Hoesen, Claro Intelecto, Conforce, Levon Vincent and Linkwood.
