Tiari (A.K.A Trevor Caruso) tells a vicious story with his moody selections and dance tracks that give you no choice but to move your body to the rhythm. Born in metro Detroit he was heavily influenced by electronic music his entire life. At the age of 6 he learned breakdancing from the combined influence of his mother and older brother who was a big fan of hip-hop music. He has always been a fan ...of underground and punk culture which has led him to develop a deep dark minimal sound that has played out across the backdrop of a city that tell a similar story.
A part of the local electronic music/dance scene since 1995, he began to mix 2 years later. With minimal tunes and deep tracks that will give the squarest of lads no choice but to lace up their dancing kicks and get down. He has national and international recognition playing from San Francisco to New York. Berlin has welcomed him in 2008 for his talents as a second trip to europe to perform (A previous 3 month tour has put him on the map and in the brainwaves of club-goers across Europe). He has completed his 3rd European tour and another is in the works for winter 2012.
His productions are the result of over a decade of experimentation; utilizing what little equipment he could afford. Schooled on a couple drum machines and a sampler, Trevor Caruso developed his style with whatever toys, keyboards, or various other gadgets he could strap to his early 80’s Schwinn Tornado (Custom tiger-striped seating) and haul home from his local neighborhood garage sale. The feeling has produced that raw vibe of minimal madness that is sure to move the masses.
He has received wide support from various artists across the board such as Richie Hawtin, Sedative, Deepchild, Maetrik, Pheek, Miss Sunshine, Viktoria Rebeka, Octave, Monoloc, Mike Wall, Morgan Thomas, Audioinjection, BCR, etc...
