A true pioneer of the West Coast desert and rave scene, co-founder of Moontribe Collective and Desert Dwellers, an incredible genre-defying DJ, a talented producer and one awesome human being. Part of the BIG GUY little guy B2B duo along with Anton Tumas, you’ll be seeing a lot of him, and for a damn good reason!
Treavor Moontribe is one of the founders of the Los Angeles based “Moontribe Collective” and its legendary full moon desert gatherings. Since 1993, these events have been at the core of Southern California’s underground electronic music scene. Treavor established himself as one of the top DJs in LA through these events and has since traveled the world from Brazil to Japan to Morocco, Portugal, Germany and all over North America. As a DJ it’s always been his diversity that set him apart from his peers. His love for music spans multiple genres and his DJing reflects this as he is just as known for Techno/Progressive as he is Psy Trance and various other forms of electronic music. In 2009 Treavor became the first American label DJ for Denmark based Iboga Records and released a compilation for them called Set9: Desert Selections. The compilation was an instant hit topping the psy trance chart on Beatport and the CD chart at PsyShop.com. In December 2011 Treavor joined the Neurobiotic Records family with his debut compilation called “Neuro:Minded” feat. Psy Trance songs from legendary artists like Dickster, Logica, The Commercial Hippies, Flip Flop, Polaris, and more. It was an instant success reaching #3 on the top Psy Trance songs chart at Beatport.com and #2 in the top releases chart.
Over the years Treavor has also established himself as a dynamic music producer having released music under several project names. His most notable project by far is Desert Dwellers. Along with his partner Amani Friend, Desert Dwellers has released 5 full length chill out albums on White Swan Records as well as countless singles, EPs and remixes for labels like Six Degrees, Flow Records, Iboga Records and Desert Trax. After the success of their “Downtemple Dub” album series on White Swan, and playing shows at some of the USA’s most prolific festivals like Lightning In A Bottle, Wanderlust and Earthdance Northern California, the Desert Dwellers are now working on a new album as well as a downtempo compilation for Iboga Records.
