Transmission 2017: The spirit of the warrior – setting the bar higher than ever!

Written by Luciano Medica on . Posted in Home

It is not new to say that Transmission lives up to the expectations they create. It is not a lie to say there’s always more than you can think of in first place. So it won’t be any revelation to say that we were there and came back amazed and invaded by the spirit of the warrior!

Believe it or not, I have been living in Europe for 3 years now and this was the first time I managed to go to Transmission. I had been hearing stories, watching videos and so much more about Transmission, to the point I was wondering what have I done wrong so far to be unable to attend to any of the previous editions. Even before Trance Energy Radio decided to cover the event, I had already bought my ticket and everything was set: I was not missing this year’s edition even if I had to sacrifice for it.

ASOT 836 – ADE SPECIAL, a dance event, a trance event, a great event!

Written by Luciano Medica on . Posted in Home

Amsterdam Dance event is the showcase for all the biggest names and events in all genres of dance and electronic music. A State of Trance is the most well-known brand for trance events and naturally, the most listened trance radio show. That is why, the synergy of combining these two massive powerhouses had created a big hype and expectation in most of the trance fans, but also raised the hopes of the fans to a point where it was hard to deliver. Disaster or success? Let’s see how that night went!

This year’s ADE was especially relevant for trance music in many aspects. Not only the ‘classic’ events took place, but also new and enormous gigs were added to the schedule, in a fashion that lets us imagine them established for the years to come. Personally, I was a little hesitant at the beginning, since there were so many events overlapping, I had other compromises too and during last year’s edition, it had been rather complicated to balance everyday life with all these events (and back then, the offer was smaller).

Run, Trance lover, run! Lumi and ASOT in one day

Written by Katrina Merca on . Posted in Events, Live

It’s been already more than 2 weeks since ADE, and especially since the day Trance Family loved and hated at the same time because of two events happening at the same time – Luminosity (Lumi) and A State Of Trance (ASOT) ADE Specials. It was the moment when you had to pick the best one… But some decided not to choose and do both. Question is – was it a good idea? Let’s see!

‘Amsterdam likes it Pure’ or Pure Trance ADE 2017

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

 

Last week Amsterdam hosted many music festivals, but the ‘purest’ one of the Trance related events was probably “Quest4Trance & Solarstone presents Pure Trance ADE 2017“, and not only because of the name, but also because of the music! In a few words: It was the most perfect event to finish ADE with, and even better intro to new Pure Trance Vol.6 compilation.

Trying to find a Common Ground

Written by Luciano Medica 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 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.
