Desillusion Magazine X Trouble Andrew – Tome 1

Desillusion Magazine just turns 10 years old this year.
To celebrate that, they will invite 6 personalities (who influence the editorial staff) to be the guest Editor in Chief for each of the next 6 issues.

For the first one – Tome 1 – they made the “This Is Trouble” issue with Trevor Andrew.

“Dear Desillusion family.
It’s hard to tell a story well, unless you were actually there and lived it. Let the truth be told, keep on preserving the culture that has made such a great impact on my life, let the youth touch it, see it and fall in love with it ’cause they go next. The death of cool, the birth of swag!”
Trevor Andrew.

Trouble Andrew
From virtuoso snowboarder to fashion innovator to skate punk electro artist to honky-tonk warbler, Trouble Andrew may be many things at once but his signature is style. After taking his professional snowboarding career all the way to the Olympics, Trouble turned to product design, pushing street influence into technical products for brands like Burton, Analog, Oakley, and Nixon. Switching direction again, his need to create met his passion for music and the Trouble Andrew project began to evolve.

Trouble released the Trouble LP in 2005, a full length album fused from his punk rock and hip hop influences. The album was re-released as Remixed and Remastered by Virgin in 2009 with new production from Shitake Monkey and Trouble. For the next year Trouble went on a production bender, doing songs with the likes of Diplo, Santigold, Ninjasonik, Amanda Blank, Curren$y, Jackie Chain, Lil Jon, Stunnaman of The Pack, Hollywood Holt, Team Facelift, and more. The result was The Trouble Gang Mixtape, an epic 30 song outpouring that demonstrated Trouble’s mastery of his own personal genre as well as his ability to push into completely new musical territory.

His next project, Dreams of a Troubled Man on Trouble Gang Records/Last Gang Records picks up where the Mixtape left off. It’s a dark and roaming personal statement that corrals an even more eclectic range of influences for an even more unique sound, a sound that can only be described as Trouble.
