TRUST Showcase at Decibel Festival - 9/24

Critically acclaimed DJs Kid Hops (KEXP) and SunTzu Sound (KBCS) have joined forces to deliver TRUST, a long-awaited dance night dedicated to sophisticated sounds unbound by genre. Over the last year and half, dancers, DJs and critics have said TRUST is “the best monthly party in the Seattle” and is doing “something great for our city.”

Like legendary club nights in New York, Philadelphia, Toyko and the UK, TRUST puts its fate in the hands of DJs, skilled selectors who move deftly through a rich range of sounds, inviting people to let loose for an unforgettable evening of intoxicating music and uplifting energy.

For 2010, Decibel Festival presents a TRUST showcase featuring a lineup custom built for diehard fans and new recruits. Local tech-house maestro Mr Leisure offers up a live set of swinging beats. Manchester, UK’s Trus’me makes his Pacific NW debut spinning a set that perfectly illustrates the TRUST vibe: deep disco, thick bass, and sparkling soul with feet planted in both the past and future.

And of course, the night would not be complete with a healthy dose of Kid Hops and SunTzu Sound spinning back to back. Local attendees and travelers from a far will get a special treat from the party that is defining the future of Seattle’s dancefloors.

TRUST 091810 Recap & Photos

Once again we’re a little late with the recap, but can you blame us? Even before TRUST was over on Saturday people were telling us that this one their favorite one yet. Chop Suey was bumping early with the dancefloor faithful. Atlanta’s Daz-I-Kue and Karl Injex raised the roof with two solid hours of classics and future gems. And to cap it off, we all went back to back on the decks serving up jam after jam to our growing family of smiling faces.

Pictures here of course:

And as always shouts to Bob Hansen, Carey Thompson, Introcut, Hisato and the whole Chop Suey staff and Erica and Sean from Decibel Festival.

Be sure to mark October 16 on your calendar, as it’s time for an all-residents night with the return of Kid Hops and SunTzu Sound for all nighter of TRUST goodness.

Now, speaking of Decibel Festival, we’re proud to present the TRUST Showcase at Decibel this year featuring a live set from MR LEISURE and the Seattle debut of TRUS’ME from Manchester, UK.

Full details here:

We’ve heard many people say that they wish TRUST was more than once a month. Well, here’s your chance to double dip!

TRUST BBQ Photos and Update


Sorry for the delay but we wanted to make sure we updated you on the very successful and all around good time at the TRUST BBQ. As you can see from the photos, it was a day of great weather, excellent tunes and uplifting vibes. We truly were blessed with a wonderful day of weather as we kept the crowd dancing until it got dark under the Seattle sky.

Special thanks to our guest DJs Introcut, Dr J, Mr Supreme, Riz and Carlos Mendoza. The TRUST team of Erica, Carey and Bob also get high marks for keeping things friendly and familiar. And finally, big up to Gavin and the entire staff of the Red Lion Hotel.

Check the photos:

Now summer might be winding down, but TRUST is heating up. We return to Chop Suey on Sept 18 with our longtime friends DAZ-I-KUE of Bugz in the Attic and KARL INJEX from Atlanta. The following week, TRUST showcases at Decibel Festival with special guest TRUS’ME from the UK. Stay tuned to Facebook and for all the info. See you out there. TRUST!
