TREi (NZ) [ Viper Recordings ]
Undoubtedly one of NZ's finest DJ / Producers; TREi, AKA Trevor Linnell, has been a leader in the drum and bass scene 'downunder' since 2007. With a slew of producers coming from Australia and New Zealand including Pendulum, ShockOne, State of Mind, and Concord Dawn, TREi has made a name for himself with releases on prestigious labels such as: Viper Recordings, Technique, Commercial Suicide, SOM Music, Shogun Ltd, Samurai Music, and Uprising Recordings.
2013 saw the release of his much anticipated second album, ‘Satellites’ (on State of Mind’s SOM Music imprint), released to much acclaim. Packed with hard hitting beats, progressive rollers, and proven Dancefloor smashers including the singles ‘Change Your Mind’ (with Thomas Oliver), Homecoming (with MC Tali) and ‘Running” (also with Thomas Oliver), as well as collaborations with The Upbeats & State of Mind. Continuing on from where 2009’s highly acclaimed debut ‘Innuendo’ left off, ‘Satellites’ has propelled TREi even further into the musical stratosphere.
TREi’s association with Viper Recordings goes back to 2011 where he made his debut on the label with the single ‘The Light / Mumbo Jumbo’ and a series of tracks featured on various Viper compilations including ‘Habituated’ and ‘Placebo’, as well as his first Beatport #1 with the smash hit ‘Seeds’ in 2014. Following the success of ‘Seeds’, TREi released another huge track with Viper in the form of his remix of Tali’s ‘Forces’ from Viper’s ‘Decade of Viper’ 10 year anniversary album.
Finishing the year in style, TREi capped off an amazing 2014 with the ‘Empires EP’ released on Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s Technique Recordings. Receiving massive support from Friction on BBC Radio 1, the lead title track ‘Empire’ was selected as the prestigious ‘Friction Fire’ track of the week.
Now signed Exclusively with Viper Recordings, TREi will be working on his next string of singles and EP’s for the label in lead up to his next studio album.
The L.A.O.S. sound is mainly melodic, dancefloor oriented drum and bass and dubstep but their wide aspect in music wont hold them in one genre. As one wise man said: "There are only two types of music: good and bad".
L.A.O.S. Live consists of the band's own boys and girl, guest artists and vocalists. The line-up for the live is built for every gig individually and it can range from three member turntable-effects-laptop mayhem up to six member band with live drummer, bass player and vocalists.
L.A.O.S. is a collaboration of three old school beatheadz: Dj Abraham , D-bex and JayeM. They have known each other for several years but not until 2002 did they understand the obvious fact that they should join forces in music production. They share the same passion for music and their taste of music is expectionally identical. Vocalist and songwriter Alexx joined L.A.O.S. in 2010 and she is featured in most of the vocal tracks that come out from the L.A.O.S. studio. The first track she released with L.A.O.S. was "Fire and Water", which she wrote the lyrics for, has been viewed more than 600 000 times in Youtube and raised interesting discussions. It was released through Viper recordings and was featured in UKF Drum and Bass compilation.
