After a long awaited 8 months since I first heard of Transmission coming to Asia, I was very excited and at the same time skeptical about if it was really going to happen. It was only 5 months ago, when they officially announced (around early November 2016) that Transmission: The Lost Oracle was going to be staged at Bitec Bangkok, Thailand on 10 March 2017.

One week later and still under the spell, after a major trance weekend event, I could barely put myself on tracks this week. The sparkles of an amazing experience still creep under my skin and along my back.
First with Luminosity Trance Gathering on Friday 17th Feb, opening the Gala Trance Weekend in full-mode on, and just before the main event of the weekend, the international indoor festival ASOT800: celebrating 800 radio shows of ‘A State Of Trance’, taking place on Saturday 18th February.
Happy New Trance Year!
With 2017 already here, and many new Trance events around the corner, it was now good timing for a new editorial, especially since the closing of 2016 was also a sort of firework time in itself.
But, first things first, on behalf of the whole staff team of Trance-Energy Radio, we want to wish all our listeners (and readers) a happy New Year!
After major indoor festival Grotesque, here in the Netherlands, we were looking forward to the Christmas holidays, a time when families gather together to celebrate and share, a time to get ready to close the year and welcome the new one.
Already two weeks have passed and we’re still under the impression… we remain with this feeling of being transported into the realms of fantasy, and we want now to take you back to experience one of the best indoor festivals in the Netherlands.
Grotesque and PT Events, organization behind, have clearly created a whole new concept of spectacle for the trance lovers around the world. We’ve been witnessing along this year how Trance has made through with a huge comeback. We aren’t just talking about the regular festivals we are all used to, in this last year more and more events have been added up every month! In that sense, it was about time for organizers to realize how much more there was to offer than just quality music or big names.
Blastoyz is back and reloaded. If you liked Blastoyz and friends Vol. 1, then you will go nuts with Blastoyz and friends vol. 2: teaming with Ranji, Skazi, WHITENO1SE, and S-B Noise, this new compilation is a monster ready to do some damage!
When I said Blastoyz is one of the promises of psytrance, I was being honest. After he delighted us with his previous compilation, I had the chance to do an exclusive interview with Blastoyz.
It is fair enough to give the word to him, because being both a DJ/producer and an Israeli citizen himself, he has the authorized word to give us a deeper insight about how Israel and psytrance are tied together.
As I write this article, my second editorial, I still think about the best way to deal with all the emotions and feelings I’ve been having since my first one in September. While the summer season was ideal and the summer vibes were absolutely amazing, I now feel confronted with the fact that autumn is quite a different story to tell. Also the fact that middle of the season I’ve got really sick with the flu for longer than 3 weeks, thus unable to put my spirit into the writing mode.
Anyway, September and October have been two amazing months full with huge events, and I was glad I could join many of them.
Grotesque stage at Electronic Family
On 23rd July took place one of the major trance events in Amsterdam, Electronic Family. I arrived late to EF, my main stage was Grotesque, so I was right on time for RAM’s set and stayed later for Pure NRG (G. Ottaviani + Solarstone) and the closing with Neelix, was really expecting some nice psytrance to end the day.
I was supposed to interview Dutch DJ RAM, but destiny wanted that my mobile phone stayed in London, where I was the week before visiting my sister. All my contacts and important stuff which I use daily to communicate with the world were only possible with my mobile phone. The interview was temporarily out of question.
“Family is the cornerstone of everything you are and what you do. Music is great, music is my other family as well but… your family will always be there for you. No matter if you’re successful, if you’re not successful, if you’re hard working or not so hard working – your family will always be there for you.” – Armin van Buuren
Last Saturday 11th June took place the event “Sense for Trance” in Gorinchem, the Netherlands. Gorinchem is a small city in the province of Zuid-Holland. Was my first time here and I must say it was a really especial experience that left me wanting for more.
Let’s say almost all parties I know and went up to now (since July 2014) mostly in the Netherlands, have been always not far from Utrecht, centre of Holland. This means, I barely visit the south of the Netherlands; until this day.
