Hope of Baltics for Trance music – what’s happening in Estonia?

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Home, Online, Spotlight

As it’s known, Trance is a very specific genre of music, which has a somewhat limited amount of followers around the world. While in countries like Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland etc. it is getting quite a lot of support, in many other countries it has not enough popularity for promoters to invite Trance producers and event organizers, for instance, the Baltic countries: Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia. However, it’s too early to lose hope, because support of this unique music is growing in Estonia, which leads to more events, but is it beneficial to organizers? How long will it continue? And what can improve the situation? Let’s think!

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!

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.

Big festivals Vs. Small events: Which to choose?

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

Almost every raver had to make the choice about where to go next at least once in his life, because time and money are limited. Some music lovers love to go to large festivals, to enjoy craziness with thousands of people, but some prefer small club nights with other passionate music lovers. Both kinds of events have their advantages and disadvantages, so let’s have a look on them:

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

There are a lot of music events around the world: you may just know about some of them, or perhaps you’ve visited some or you could even be planning to go to one somewhere in your country or in another continent… so you probably thought at least once – “Hmm, how is the crowd in …[that country]?” That was exactly what I did during my stay in United States, comparing club events in Atlanta with the ones I had attended in Europe, especially the one with Ferry Corsten.

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

Last week Slovakia hosted probably its most highlighted Trance event in years, and it’s all thanks to EDMANIA, who invited the „King of Trance” as a headliner. And it doesn’t end up there – Armin van Buuren was also supported by Rodg, Orjan Nilsen, Driftmoon, ReOrder, Major7 and other local Trance DJs, making this journey last not for three, but for stunning 12 hours! Huge experiment for a still young organization, which gave a good result!

Finding the link between Trance and Orchestral music

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Home, Spotlight

Trance is an extraordinary genre of electronic music: one that attracts a rather limited amount of listeners, but keeps them for a really long time while building a loyal fanbase – better known as Trance Family -, and that is what makes this genre so special for its followers. At the same time, there are some other genres of music, both different and similar to Trance – Orchestral and Instrumental music, especially part of nowadays’ Soundtrack music (which you can hear in different movies and series). The most interesting fact is that there is a lot – not only – of listeners, but also producers, who love both of these genres, and to some extent it pushes you to ask the million-dollar question – why is it so?
