Indie Spotlight: DJ Skeet Skeet

Posted in News on November 9, 2009

A country kid from Iowa, DJ Skeet Skeet rolled into LA known simply as Trevor McFedries. However, he started doing DIY parties in Hollywood with other up-and-coming DJs like Royal Rumble, LA Riots and Young Americans (now Classixx). Soon, “Skeet” was spinnin’ all over the the place: celebrity hot spots like Hyde, hipster hang-outs like Studio B, and big baller clubs in the Vegas, Atlantic City scene. In 2007, he teamed up with Shwayze and Cisco Adler to complete the Shwayze outfit. The band has since made their mark with a Billboard top 10 record, a Top 40 single, a performance at KIIS’ Wango Tango, TRL Live performances and a national televised commercial spot for the new Pontiac Vibe. In the last year, Skeet was featured in film The Haunting of Molley Hartley, played for crowds of more than 20,000 at festivals like Bacardi B-live, Bud Bowl, and Street Scene, all while simultaneously pumping out remixes for acts like Katy Perry, Danger Radio, Fergie, Boys Like Girls, Shop Boyz, and Shwayze. This last summer, Skeet was the first DJ ever to play the entire Vans Warped Tour—a traveling festival usually reserved for punk and indie rock bands.
