ASOT800 – I live for that energy

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.

After a long year waiting, A State of Trance Festival finally came. And it still feels as it went way too fast. An event that exceeded expectations and that brought some surprises: here’s a take on this night with the facts and my personal input.

What an event! Every year ALDA events tries to raise the stakes a little higher when it comes to organizing a new edition of A State of Trance festivals in the Jaarbeurs (Utrecht, The Netherlands). It has been becoming a ritual for me, something that I have to do religiously every year. I feel lucky that with every edition I like it more, and I feel a big part of it has to do with the effort and dedication behind that both the organizers and the DJs put into this gig.

Under the theme “I live for that energy”, A State of Trance has deployed a number of renowned and up-and-coming DJs that have provided one of the best spectacles in Trance and have set high expectations for the rest of the year.

What happens when two generations of DJs come together for collaboration? Magic.

While many producers are getting closer to the EDM bounty, Standerwick and Chris Schweizer have provided their bold statement that trance is alive and going strong.

In a world where EDM seems to be dominating, with a decreasing amount of creativity when it comes to producing new tracks; the moment two producers join forces to create a massive trance tune which actually sounds original, it feels like a breath of fresh air. This is the case of ‘Predator’, born as collaboration between British legend Standerwick and Argentinian ‘promise’ Chris Schweizer.
