"PASSION AND TRUE CLASS"
Trujillo’s well-honed sense of soul, disco and tropical 80s house rhythms comes paired with an unparalleled devotion to digging up dusty dance floor heat that gets even the chin strokers’ hips shaking.
Trujillo grew up in Merida, Venezuela, where records were a part of daily family life. He started his career in 1995 fronting the Venezuelan band Dioslepague, releasing two albums and touring extensively in Venezuela. After the band’s split in 2003 Trujillo spent some years in London, making frequent visits to Plastic People and The End. He began releasing a slew of impressive electronic records. With remixes from Mark E, Eddie C and Toby Tobias, the 12”s ‘Fruit Punch’ and 'Every time I Think of You' on the quality dance music imprint Apersonal marked the start of Trujillo’s multifarious collaborative output.
Back in Venezuela, Trujillo released the original music album ‘Daltonic Now!’, which was crowned with four Pepsi Music Awards and landed him on line ups with the likes of Kraftwerk, Jamiroquai and Moby. He then met Claas Brieler from Jazzanova and Sonar Kollectiv during a show at the Goethe Institute in Caracas. Trujillo moved to Berlin, where he has been living ever since. He and Brieler released the cosmic disco compilation ‘The Magic Sound Of Daniel Grau’ together in 2014. In 2021, they founded the label True Class, focused on reissuing true gems from around the world with the utmost care. 2021 also sees Trujillo release a compilation of music with Soundway, which he has been working on for almost four years. The fruits of his ever-passionate labour are increasingly abundant yet unwaveringly classy.
