DJ Trichrome the ‘Vibesetta’ has music flowing through his veins…he started playing drums at the age of 10, enjoyed raiding his dad’s record collection and was DJing his school dances and starting bands and getting some radio experience starting in the 1980’s and keeps raging the turntables.
Trichrome maintains his own niche in this world of digital media…with REAL VINYL! He has been spinning records for more than 25 years and is JUST getting started.
His career as DJ Trichrome started in 1998 alongside Pacesetter Sound System and then Formula Sound System in Madison, WI. In 2001 Trichrome moved to Minneapolis, MN where he formed III Kings Sound System and founded Trichrome Productions in 2004. Trichrome went on to DJ weekly roots and culture events for over 5 years, before making his way back to Madison, WI (2008) where he currently resides and can be heard DJing reggae music at venues like Majestic, Alchemy, High Noon Saloon, Nattspil, throughout the city, across the country and beyond with local and national acts.
