A perennial presence in music since the early 90's and a long time Giant Step family member, Ron Trent pulls no punches! Considered to be one of the architects of the Chicago music scene, Ron's breakthrough first release was the highly recognized classic "Altered States" in 1990. In the early 90's, Ron collaborated with House/R&B team Hula & Fingers, producers for Jive records and with Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Kool Mo D, High Five, Lidell Townsend and MTF. Ron's sound expanded in 1997 with the release of the dance classic "Ncame U." With writing partner Anthony Nicholson, famed vocalist D'bora, and Peven Everett on trumpet, this record launched Ron onto the NYC dance scene. He quickly gained respect as a DJ/Producer by doing various gigs at Body and Soul, Shelter and hosting his own events at the legendary nightclub Vinyl in downtown Manhattan.
Ron's DJ and production skills caught the attention of Giant Step in 2000. Ron started his residency with Giant Step at Shine, bringing forth a fusion of Neo Soul, Jazz Funk and World music, while merging it into a dance formula. The party, "Giant Step Weekly Sessions," sponsored by Levi's and Evian, played host to many loyal weekly followers. With Ron's vast knowledge of music and Giant Step's thirst for the cutting edge, the event became one of the most top rated nights in NYC. Ron's in house productions on the Giant Step/Sony label, featured artists such as Amel Larrieux, Jody Watley, Anastacia, Donnie, Carl Hancock Rux, Lina, just to name a few. His productions lead him to work with other greats including Tony Allen, Chucho Valdes, Papa Weba, 4Hero, Amp Fiddler, Groove Collective, as well as various other world artists.
**Hudson parties are held fortnightly on Mondays.
