Chicago, United States
2013 Red Bull Thre3Style US Champion and B96 Mixmaster Trentino describes himself as a "musician who happens to play the turntables." It's the cold hard truth. As a staple in the Chicago club scene, Trentino brings "big, epic, heavy" sets to the stage with the help of a live drum kit at his side. Since day one, he has treated the turntables as a musical instrument. It's the mentality of a musician that has gotten him this far. Trentino's music has made its way onto MTV, VH1, ESPN, Oxygen, and Style Networks while he climbs up the Beatport charts. Likewise, as he moves up the ranks of Red Bull Thre3Style, his fear of fellow competitors is minimal. "There is no one I have ever met that brings as wide a breadth of experience and knowledge to the turntables as me," says Trentino.
