Trusme’s musical roots trace way back to an early age where he dabbled with various instruments. He began studying production but soon developed a love of vinyl culture, which shifted his focus towards the art of mixing and sample digging.

Trusme’s debut release on Chicago’s Still Music label was quickly followed by two more, all blowing up on both sides of the pond and accelerating the buzz on this new artist. His production was constantly compared to Moodymann and other such Detroit luminaries with his releases snatching feature spots and record of the week in many outlets from Piccadilly Records in Manchester to Jazzy Sport in Tokyo. He was soon picking up support and admiration from all the right d.js and producers such as Ashley Beedle, Mad Matts, Juan Atkins, Chez Damier and Gilles Peterson, who fi¬rst championed him on Radio 1 saying,” if there was ever a house record made for me, it would sound like this`”

In December 2007 Fat City Recordings released his debut album entitled “Working Nights” which included some of the previous singles along with a host of what were to become classic tracks re-enforcing the Trusme sound. Tracks such as “W.A.R” and “W.A.R dub” were highlighted by numerous licenses to dj mixes and compilations. “Working Nights” has proved a timeless debut album that is still ¬nding devotees. This has led to an array of Trusme remixes being requested from acts such as LCD Soundsystem, Amp Fiddler, Dabrye, & Motor City Drum Ensemble, Alton Miller and Anthony Shake Shakir.

During 2008 Trusme set up his own label “Prime Numbers” which has quickly found an unfaltering reputation for highly collectable and exceptional music from integral artists. The label has now seen releases from the likes of Move D, Actress, Linkwood and Reggie Dokes, all artists that ¬suit the ethos and style that Trus’me continues to carry a torch for. Following the release of the debut Linkwood with forthcoming albums in from MCDE, Move D and Fudge Fingas, Prime Numbers looks set to continue growing in stature and maintain the quality for which people have come to expect.

In 2009 Fat City Recordings in association with Prime Numbers released Trusme’s much anticipated second album “In The Red”. Trusme certainly raised the bar this time attracting some real key players to appear on "In The Red", not least Chicago legend Chez Damier, one of the most respected house music producers in the world. Also featuring vocals from, jazzy Detroit innovator Amp Fiddler, and L.A. ambassador of nu-boogie, Dam-Funk (Stones Throw).

Currently Trusme has been touring throughout Asia, Australia, USA and Europe djing at some of the world most interesting venues. While working on material for his third album which will feature some of the finest names in music today.
