An ally of The Obs from the time when it was still just an empty room in District 1: the globally-renowned producer and DJ is back to shake us with his masterfully special selections and sound.
Hailing from Manchester but now based in Berlin, Trus’me has played in our city enough times over the last 4 years to know how to make it move in a unique way. He is a DJ that is able to break down the barriers between house, techno and disco in a way that gets progressively kaleidoscopic as a night progresses: the perfect recipe for a night of sonic exploration within our walls.
Trus’me has had his productions remixed by some of the most high-profile players in the game - including Alan Fitzpatrick and Ben Klock, to name a few - and as owner of the renowned Prime Numbers label, he has worked with even more. Just listen to one of his tracks and you’ll understand why.
Joined by Obs’ resident techno force MadderModes, you can rightfully expect a night of unhinged sound power.

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.
