Today we want to introduce you to another promising talent: UK’s Jamie Trench. He cooked up a nice and funky house podcast that will give your weekend a flying start. But first, let us tell you a little something about our man of the hour.
With a father who worked in the nightclub scene, Jamie was introduced to electronic music and all of its aspects at a very young age, regularly visiting clubs with his dad, and listening to the hottest new releases together. As a hungry twenty-something he got his first gig at the acclaimed Lightbox club in London. Afterwards he got involved in the Loft parties in the town of Milton Keynes. A rather small community northwest of London, but famous for its vibrant nightlife and reputation as a creative hub, spawning many great artists from the UK.
From there Jamie Trench started working in Ibiza, which was another important training ground, opening a window of opportunities for the Englishman. Like gigs at Space, where he played at its Closing Fiesta, The Zoo Project and Privilige; he also enjoyed a residency at Kehakuma’s Red Box, alongside compadre Daniel Dalton. Another one of his prime bookings was at the Warehouse Project in the cradle of rave, Manchester.
His production work hasn’t gone unnoticed either, having releases on imprints such as Tsuba, VIVa Music, Kaluki and She Wolf. His musical influences range from the Chemical Brothers, MJ Cole to Tribe called Quest, Slick Rick and other nineties hiphop acts. His diverse musical taste keeps him fresh and bold during studio time, never afraid of trying out bold new sounds in his work.
Jamie Trench will be playing at the Music is Love Records ADE showcase, October 20th. The event will actually be an afterparty for Saturday night, starting at 7:00 Sunday morning. Jamie will be prolonging your ecstatic state of mind with colleagues New Jack City, Oil Furness, Liam Geddes, Audiobirdz and more. This will all take place at VLLA, a cozy venue which is perfect for the ultimate after party. The decks will be spinning until 20:00. This will leave you more than enough time to freshen up at home, lace your dancing shoes and make your way to BARKODE, where we will be holding our very own NeedWant Label Night of course. But for now sit back, relax and begin your weekend with this killer podcast.
