Trance dream in iconic Milan – when you purely follow the heart

Written by Simona Kanapickaite on . Posted in Home

Trance Gate has always been the most emblematic trance music events in Italy. While putting on several solo DJ shows, festivals or themed events a year, it attracts trance lovers from various Italian cities as well as from different countries such as Spain, Switzerland or even Lithuania, where I come from.

Just before the event, there was a traditional dinner at restaurant near the venue with performing DJs which is always a special highlight of the night, sweet precious value, when music lovers meet their heroes, beloved trance scene DJs face to face, talk about music, events, travels, passion for music, the trance scene, productions and details of their private life.

What’s in ZOYA’s mind? Trance, love and passion.

Written by Luciano Medica Catalan on . Posted in Home

Creating music is a constant experiment, and that’s what ZOYA has been doing for the last few months in order to deliver her new track ‘In my mind’. About to host a trance remix context for her new track, the Bulgarian-born artist has created a new piece of music that explores a different sound but still showcases her full talent, and we talked with her!

When it comes to female artists releasing new material, I can’t avoid but feeling thrilled. Most of the times female artists are somehow allocated in the background whereas male artists catch all the attention. So when I knew that ZOYA was producing new music I thought it was the time to give her some well deserved space.

Despite her new track ‘In my mind’ has an experimental pop-house sound, this doesn’t mean she has left trance at all. As you may had read before on our site, most artists want to explore different fields, styles and genres. And ZOYA is one of the perfect examples for this.

Trying to find a Common Ground

Written by Luciano Medica Catalan on . Posted in Home

Life is made of small moments like these. In this case, those small moments are the three and a half months ahead that separate us from the release of the next Above and Beyond album, which will be titled “Common Ground”.

Despite we don’t have lots of information about the next record and we don’t have an official tracklist to look forward to yet, we already know the cover art and at least three tracks that will certainly make it to the final cut.

Right after the magnificent celebration of ABGT 250 in the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington, USA, Above and Beyond has left us shaking, full of emotions and craving for more. Since the beginning of August we have known that there’s an upcoming A&B album ready to be released, but now the rumours and news have turned into a fact.

Markus Schulz Open To Close @ Avalon Hollywood (09/02/2017)

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Home, Live

Markus Schulz still sounds as one of the most popular and talented DJs and producers that Trance scene has had. His Open-To-Close (OTC) sets have been on high demand for a couple of years now, and many people have been praising them for long. I’m not a huge fan of Markus Schulz, but I’ve heard so much about his these sets, so as a real Trance music fan I simply couldn’t miss it when I got a chance!

Trance is unique: it cannot die, it cannot be replaced

Written by Luciano Medica Catalan on . Posted in Home

Music is above all, a source of joy. I personally can’t conceive my life without music, and in the last 10 years I have been listening mostly to trance. To some extent, trance music has become a part of me.

 

Usually music has the power to pull back memories from the depths of our minds. Memories that have to do with situations, smells, feelings, even physical sensations. To be honest, music is one of the few things that connects me with my emotions, and trance is one of the many genres that can bring me to tears like a child.

Is from this connection with my emotions that I realized that one, as a part of the trance family, builds a history along with trance. It becomes a part of us because it has some special features, and generates situations that can only be understood by people who have been in a trance festival or event, but also those who like me, from home as well, have listened to this wonderful style for years.

Trance music never fails, but promoters can

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Home, Live

Last weekend I was supposed to attend Married To The Rave (MTTR) festival in Orlando, with 3 different stages and one of them was the Trance stage. Some of my friends were going to be play there, so I decided to go and support them, even if the drive took me more than 6 hours. But before the day of event I didn’t know that it will turn into the most chaotical event I’ve ever experienced, even if the final result was not as bad.

Love never ends – Street Parade: Zürich spreading high vibes + Trance beats

Written by Georgina Zinno on . Posted in Events, Home, Live

I still can’t believe it’s already a week ago I was in the beautiful city of Zürich, Switzerland, taking part in the best party in the world! Street Parade 2017!I’m sure there are plenty of amazing parties around the world but… not like this one. And by this, I mean: a free entrance party happening all around Zürich with love mobiles spreading high vibes and people dancing to electronic beats all day long! What about that? Yes, a parade with mobiles isn’t exclusive of carnival, think back when the Love Parade – by the neighbours in Berlin, Germany – was the most famous street electronic party in the world.

We feel, love, care

We feel, we love, we care

While most of us, the trance family, have the chance to enjoy life and feel the music; there are people in this world who can’t really manage to get to enjoy their lives. Sometimes it’s because of hunger, sometimes is because of the cold or the lack of a helping hand to assist them to pull through their difficult lives.
