One of New Zealand's finest DJs/producers is coming to Nelson's Elsewhere on Saturday night.

TREi draws praise worldwide for his mixing ability, high-energy sets and anthemic productions, and he's been linked to some of the finest drum and bass record labels, club nights, DJs and producers in the world.

With releases on the likes of Viper Recordings, Commercial Suicide, Shogun Ltd, Samurai Music, SOM Music, Uprising Recordings; and his music gaining regular support from such luminaries as Concord Dawn, Andy C, Klute, Friction, Futurebound, Crissy Criss, Metrik, Goldie and Black Sun Empire, his presence over the past few years has been impossible to ignore.

Following on from well-received album Innuendo, last year saw the release of TREi's second album Satellites, to much acclaim. It included dance floor favourites Change your Mind and Running, both with Thomas Oliver; Homecoming, with MC Tali; and collaborations with The Upbeats and State of Mind.

The New Zealand Herald gave it four stars and lauded TREi's move into a slightly more accessible direction, calling the album "dance music to win a test match by".

There's no letting up. TREi has done remixes for Shapeshifter, Cause 4 Concern and Downlink, and his most recent single spent weeks at No 1 in the world drum'n'bass charts on music site Beatport.

He's appearing at Elsewhere with support from Chopz, Luccid, and Rakit.

  • TREi, Saturday night, Elsewhere, 9pm to 3am. Entry $10 on the door.
