Trevor Fung

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

Trevor Fung began his DJing career at 18 and was quickly earning a reputation for his taste and knowledge of both UK and American Soul Funk and Jazz.

In 1984 through his European tastes and connections Trevor was invited to play at Amnesia in Ibiza to spin his now mixed Style of dance music, which complimented the much-respected resident Amnesia DJ Alfredo.  On Trevor’s return and throughout the mid eighties he teamed up with long time friend Paul Oakenfold to set up a club called “The Funhouse” playing similar sounds from his Ibiza experience alongside the popular Hip Hop and Go-Go sounds of that time. This was followed by the formation of his infamous “The Project” club with also club resident DJ, Carl Cox. The Project Club was strongly influenced @ that time by the new sounds coming in n from the Detroit and Chicago. HOUSE MUSIC!

In the summer of ‘87 Trevor took “The Project Club” concept to Ibiza where together with Ian St Paul he opened Bar in San Antonio, playing to a very mixed crowd that was attracted by the then unusual combination of Hip Hop, Indie, Acid and House music Trevor had incorporated into his unique style. This later became known within the music press as “Balearic Beat”. In 1988 Trevor’s influence over fellow friends and DJ’s ignited a chain reaction in London. Nicky Holloway, Paul Oakenfold, Johnny Walker and Danny Rampling were all early visitors to Trevor’s nights both at The Project Club and Amnesia and were inspired to change the face of the London Club Scene by launching seminal nights such as ‘The Future’, ‘Spectrum’, ‘Shoom’, ‘The Land Of Oz’, ‘Rage’ and ‘ Trip’.

Following this period Trevor could be seen playing at all the spectacular one-off “M25 Orbital live events” such as “Sunrise”, “Energy”, “World Dance” and “Biology” which in turn led to long-term residencies at “Rage”, “Enter the Dragon”, “Spectrum” and “Love @ the Wag”.

Trevor has been working recently on his Club promotions, monthly residence at Plan B in South London “The Sound of Higher Ground”, and also host other major club nights with some of the biggest DJ’s from the USA, UK featuring some of clublands most respected promoters & DJ’s, legendary DJ’s Danny Krivit, Franck Roger, DJ Deep, Danny Rampling, Matty Heilbronn, DJ Pierre, Phil Asher, DJ Disciple, Nathan Haines, Rap Saunders and Stuart Patterson and DJ A.K.A (Higher Ground) and some of the best local talent of South London.

Trevor, has been busy setting up his new recording label and touring with fellow old friend and now world renown Producer/DJ Paul Oakenfold throughout the world and look out for them playing in London this Summer.
