Biography

DJ Trevor Simpson’s heart will always be in San Francisco.
The artist, remixer, performer, World Town Inc. founder, and radio personality remains intrinsically connected to the hub’s electronic dance music scene. Whether it’s as resident DJ for prime SF nightspot Ruby Skye or booking the hottest talent in the genre around town under the World Town banner, he preserves that connection in everything he does. On his forthcoming debut EP for his own World Town Recordings and Indie-Pop, Tamalpais, Trevor artfully weaves together house music energy characteristic of the Bay Area with massive pop scope.

Becoming an artist proved natural for him. After nearly a decade as a San Francisco radio presence on-air and in the clubs, Ultra Records tapped him to mix the 2006 compilation Ultra. Weekend 2. A year later, he followed that up by mixing Ultra. Dance 8, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Dance Chart and moved in excess of 80,000 units.
Soon, Trevor had become a highly sought remixer, providing official remixes for Lady Gaga’s platinum-selling “Just Dance”, LMFAO’s “I’m in Miami Bitch”, M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes”, and a host of tracks for the likes of Paula Abdul, Dev, Cobra Starship, Nelly Furtado, and Jason Derülo. Cutting his own original music proved the next logical step and something of a dream for him.
“The focus was to write songs,” Trevor says of the EP. “I wanted to make a cool collection of dance pop that would lend itself to remixing down the line. The music could work on the radio or on the dance floor. It isn’t about simply appealing to one audience or the other. This is for everyone.”
