Review

Despite such musical prowess, Trevor Loveys remains something of an enigmatic figure - quite a refreshing change in the era of DJ ‘tweets his breakfast’. Beloved by critics, bloggers, and many an underground music buff, he’s never jostled for the limelight, preferring to let his music fight for aural attention. Right back from his first production outing as House of 909 with the critically acclaimed album ‘The Children We Were’, Trevor has been at the forefront of new sounds. Alongside Dave Taylor (Switch), Herve, Jesse Rose as Izit, Machines Don’t Care, and Chris Belsey (Lil Bo Tweak), Loveys has helped propel edgy, beat-driven dance music from a micro-scene in London to a worldwide genre that has troubled bassbins (and club sound engineers) across the globe. In 2000, he teamed up with Dave Taylor and embarked on a number of projects, the most successful of which became the now renowned Switch, releasing various singles and high profile remixes for Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx and Busta Rhymes. Trevor then went on to form the Speaker Junk project with another long time friend and production partner, Herve. ‘Body Jack’ is his first compilation album. A 2 disc mix filled with his best productions and remixes to date, plus some of the killer tunes in his DJ set and a host of exclusives. This is a journey through the sound that has established him as a global tour de force, from the deeper style of his Lil Bo Tweak projects through to Speaker Junk and his own unique take on party beats, featuring the likes of Bloc Party, Roisin Murphy, Bent, Switch, The Chemical Brothers, Alexander Robotnick, Don Diablo, and many more. After signing to Herve’s Cheap Thrills imprint, Trevor re-releases the Dubsided classic ‘Organ Grinder’ in September 2009 with remixes from Herve (as The Count of Monte Cristal), Dub Frequency, Black Noize and Green Money.
