TOP FIVES: Tranter

A member of Gameboy/Gamegirl, TRANTER has honed his giant hands at the art of DJ-ing and making dance music. He recently dropped an EP on Scattermusic to rapturous acclaim from DJ’s who have good names like Zombie Disco Squad, Them Jeans, Malente and Ajax. He plans for stereotypical DJ bio things such as World Domination, but whilst doing them with a Moustache.
