This is the after-party to our boat party, or a party in its own right.
It was in the early 90s when Marcus Kaye and Lee Ching worked at two of the most influential record shops in the UK resulting in a mutual friendship born out of an eternal hunt for new and exciting music. Soon both were at the forefront of a progressive Drum & Bass movement under their Marcus Intalex and DJ Lee monikers performing on a global scale and contributing some of the most influential music of the genre but never actually collaborating. As Kaye broadened his horizons creating the Trevino alias to critical acclaim and Ching went the mundane route of 9 to 5 normality the duo's still weekly conversations about the nuances of modern House and Techno turned into Sideways. Finally, after more than a decade, the two have joined forces to bring us the truly unique and exciting EP, "Retraced", forthcoming on Watergate Records.

"In order to make oneself better, stronger, more accomplished, you have to put yourself into new situations."
This is the sentiment of hydra-headed veteran producer, promoter and label boss, Marcus Intalex, on yet another of his musical incarnations – Trevino – a new and fresh mononym, functioning as an outlet for his 120 -130bpm-range house-techno creations, which – just as he has always done as an artist – go their own way, regardless of expectation or reaction.
The Trevino guise has been nominated for ‘Best Producer’ in the 2012 DJ Mag Awards. A prestigious achievement for the project and one that is certain to propel the music to new audiences and platforms.
Marcus always retained a deep connection to house and techno. Heavy influence came from across the water as records by the late eighties Detroit sound of the Belleville Three, Carl Craig, Underground Resistance, and Drexiya filtered through to the Manchester record shops and onto Marcus’ turntables. As Trevino, this influence is clear throughout the body of his work. With one eye on his roots and one set firmly looking forward, he has managed to carve out a sound that is entirely relevant today, as he himself admits, “ influenced by everything I’ve been into over the years. Everything I’ve ever believed in.”
