David Trumfio (born in Chicago in 1968) is a record producer, mixer, engineer and songwriter. Dave grew up in Mt. Prospect, Illinois, and was a staff engineer after apprenticing at Seagrape Recording Studios. He then started his home studio, Kingsize Recording Den, and officially opened Kingsize Soundlabs in Chicago's Wicker Park district in 1991. He currently resides in Los Angeles and runs Kingsize SoundLabs, a recording studio in Silver Lake, California. He has worked with acts such as Wilco,[1] Ok Go,[2] and Patrick Park.[3]


Early work

His early work included recordings by The Mekons, Wilco, Alternative TV, Young Marble Giants guitarist Stewart Moxham and British rock band The Pretty Things.

"Dave Trumfio knew he wanted to make recording his life from the day he bought his first multitrack, a Fostex X15 4 track, way back in 1984." [4]

The Pulsars

Dave Trumfio was the frontman in the 90's new-wave band The Pulsars.[5] The Pulsars, made up of brothers Dave and Harry Trumfio, released EPs in the early 1990s before getting signed to Herb Alpert's Almo Records.[6] The Pulsars signed contracts with Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss's post A&M venture ALMO Sounds in 1995.

Like The Modern Lovers in the '70s (who recorded one of my top three albums of all time), the Pulsars were yet another cool cult band that broke up after one album before they even had a chance to hit their stride. -Pope Penguin

"Dave Trumfio began his career leading his own band, the Pulsars, to a deal with Almo Sounds/Geffen Records in the mid-Nineties."[2]

Recent work

Trumfio has worked for independent record labels such as Merge, TeenBeat Records, Touch and Go Records / 1/4 stick, Minty Fresh, Simple Machines, Darla Records and Vagrant. He also helped launch the careers of OK GO [7] (Capitol Records), singer songwriter Patrick Park (Hollywood), Gay disco band The Aluminum Group (Minty Fresh) and funk musicians The Baldwin Brothers (TVT).

Trumfio has recently worked with Built To Spill, Jesus and Mary Chain, American Music Club, Booker T and new new wave revivalists The Rentals.
