As a resident of Berlin’s infamous Cocktail d’Amore party, Trent knows a thing or two about how to work a crowd into a frenzy. This time spent behind the decks has clearly given him an idea about the type of tunes that result in maximum dancefloor impact.
On his new EP for San Diego’s Bouquet. Records, Trent explores chugging, psychedelic sounds primed for the aforementioned purpose. Although the Italian producer and DJ frequently veers in a feel-good direction, the three tracks here are tough, muscular workouts that seem more suited to late-night sweat sessions than to sunny open-airs.
‘This is a Trip’ could be interpreted as a nod to the extended sets that Trent has proven capable of, both solo and as one half of the GreenVision with Juan Ramos. One can almost feel the heaving bodies and ecstatic commotion of the crowd. For now, that will have to do.
‘Transition 35’ is scheduled for release 4 May via Bouquet. Records. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
