13 DJs, 4 stages, 1st day, 1 event: Luminosity Beach Festival 2017 #ontheroad

Finally back on track! I've been away for a while, but right now I am preparing to go to Luminosity Beach Festival to enjoy the very first day of their 10th anniversarry. Needless to say, I am super uber excited to be here.

But all this excitement fades a bit when I see the line ups for each stage and struggle becomes real. When you see 3 favorite DJs playing in the same time, you start to question yourself why didn't you discover teleportation yet? Or it cloning be an option? To be able to enjoy all the artists? Who to choose? All the artists you already saw and instantly liked? Artists you never saw playing? All of them? :D

Well, I tried to stay away from making a plan when they first announced the timetable. I tried so hard to go with the flow, but I can't stay away from picking up my favorites. :)

So, the first day for me is gonna be entertained by amazing artists like: Jerome Isma-Ae, Menno De Jong, Philippe El Sisi, Solarstone, Simon O'Shine, Snjeder, Standerwick, Misja Helsloot, Sean Tyas, Maria Healy, Johan Gielen and Jordan Suckley. Of course, the time sets coincide, but I don't care. I will do my best to enjoy all of them! Also, will try my best to take some photos, even though I think my camera is on its way to beeing broken. Yesterday at the pre-party it had a blast! :D

Full timetable for the first day looks something like this. Who did you choose to see?

Tranceylvania este comunitatea trancerilor din Cluj si imprejurimi. Au inceput in Noiembrie 2011, sub numele de Cluj Trance Addicts si au pus la cale primul eveniment in ianuarie 2012. Momentan au ajuns la editia cu numarul 20, si sigur nu se vor opri aici! They are keeping trance alive and we're proud of this!

PS. Stati pe aproape. Curand vine un articol mai detaliat despre ei si celelalte comunitati de trance din Romania! Trance ON!


Brace yourself. Sandstorm is coming!

Well yeaaaaaah!

In less than 2 weeks, the finish DJ is coming to Romania for the first time! We're actually pretty excited and cannot wait to party again with the romanian trance community at Arenele Romane. Known by his most popular track ever, Sandstorm, Darude was never forgotten into the trance world. His unique sounds, his classic tunes are and will always be in our hearts. Started in 1996, launching Sandstrom in 1999 and having one of the most sold singles in 2000, he is still a pioneer for the electronic music nowadays. He's constantly improving and supporting young artists in their journey. Hard working guy, he launched a couple of weeks ago a new, very catchy track. A track that is actually a single from his upcoming album! So, he is one to watch this year!

Aaaaaand one to see on the stage at Arenele Romane, on May 23! Grab your ticket and prepare for another event, powered by the one and only TrancEnDance! As usual, the guys behind it - Snatt and Vix will take care of the warm up!

Tickets: 40 RON - pre-sale regular / 100 RON - VIP

Markus Schulz will be rocking Bucharest on 7th of February

We all know Markus Schulz. We all know he is America's Best DJ for 2015 and also being loved by all the music lovers around the world. Aaaaand now we all know that he will be performing on February 7th in Bucharest at Arenele Romane.

The event was announced for several weeks now and has an attendance of over 900 people. Romanian trance people are the best when talking about this beautiful music, and can't wait till ”due date”. Sharing tracks, making requests are typical post on the event. Also, they are helping each other, by sharing acomodation and travel information for everyone that is not from Bucharest and wanna come. This is actually how trance family goes. :)

The people behind this are again Snatt & Vix, the amazing romanian trance duo, that made the romanian trance family touch numerous levels of happiness by being part of the amazing events from last year (2 Armada Nights - one with Aly and Fila, Christina Novelli, another one with Alexander Popov, Susana, Mark Sixma, Simon O' Shine and Alexandra Badoi, Aly and Fila The Other Shore Album Tour, Armin Only Intense, Chicane, Johan Gielen with trance classics and Arctic Moon).

We can say Markus is a pioneer for the electronic dance music. In the last 10 years he combined more styles into his personal one. His label ”Coldharbour”, his radio show ”Global DJ Broadcast” and himself were a real influence for the trance scene, specially in US. Aaaand we all know how much US influences the entire world.

In the last episodes of the GDJB, Markus announced that this year he will produce 12 tracks, a new one every month for some specific cities visited during gigs. The first one was for Miami and called Bayfront. You can check it here:


Aaaand, we're happy to announce, the second one is dedicated to Bucharest! Hell yeah! Cannot wait to hear this one. Be sure to be at Arenele Romane on February 7th to hear it live! And don't ever forget to TRANCE ON!

Armada Night with Alexander Popov, Mark Sixma, Alexandra Badoi, Susana, Snatt & Vix and Simon O'Shine

Hey there! I'm back live and (finally) writing you about how was the amazing Armada Night in Bucharest on October 4th with Alexander Popov, Mark Sixma, Alexandra Badoi, Susana, Snatt &Vix and Simon O'Shine. OMG!! What a line up! Right? It was the perfect line up for such an evening. It was the perfect location and timing for the romanian trance family to gather again and breathe those beautiful sounds of trance music.

We started with the usual meet and greet and let me tell you, these artists are more modest and more beautiful than I imagined. Super cool and nice, they talked with us like we were friends and just met for a beer. The question I usually adress to artists is ”Why TRANCE? How did you fall in love with trance music?” and the answers never stop to surprise me. Even if they talk about the feelings trance gives them (and this is one of the most usual answer I get), the way they talk about it gives me shivers everytime. So much passion, so much dedication to this music that these people have is simply amazing. Susana just fell in love with the armony and talked about the joy Armin Only 2008 brought to her life.  Alexandra, when she heard ”In and out of love” knew that trance is the music she wanna sing and also because of her strong friendship with Snatt&Vix she's doing it now. Alexander and Mark mentioned Tiesto as a reference and the feelings they want to give to people by producing trance music.


Talking about the evolution of this music and what they think will happen in the next years, the response was ”music evolves and we need to deal with that. Mark is positive and thinks that progressive trance will have its comeback soon. Obviously, United States and the charts are like guidelines for people when it comes to music, but there are people that are trying to see also what else is outhere and discover that ”underground” trance they instantly fell in love with. We really enjoyed the meet and greet. My only regret is that Simon O'Shine couldn't come, but his set was amazing!!! He totally killed us in the morning!

Being the last one in the line up, it's tricky. People are usually leaving before the last act, and you might have an artist with just 50 people dancing in front of him. But let me tell you, even there are just 50 people on the dancefloor, they are enought to feel all the energy! Trance family is amazing on the dancefloor and not letting anything to make them feel tired or cold. They just feel the music and touch all these beautiful sounds of trance.


The other sets were amazing too! Even if some more electric than the others, we came, we raved, we loved! Snatt& Vix had one of the best warm up sets. I personally just loved it and enjoyed it to its fullest. Mark Sixma electrified us with his tracks and saved the best for last! Closing his set with Adagio for Strings and Character was just epic! ALexander Popov, though was a bit predictble. His sets was pretty similar to the one from Yekaterinburg (A State of Trance 650). But even so, the amazing romanian trance family just enjoyed it, sang and jumped on the dancefloor!


The 2 live acts with Alexandra Badoi and Susana were breathtaking. I already knew how is Alexandra on the stage (from the pre-release album party - Andrew Rayel with Find your Harmony in Chisinau - a throw back article coming soon. STAY TUNED!! ), but she amazed me again! Starting with Cold shower and ending her perfomance with Goodbye, her latest track with Andrew Rayel was the perfect choice. She transmitted a lot of energy and all her passion for trance music!

Susansa's act was so emotional, but in the same time so energetic, I just fell in love with trance music again and again. She took us in a ”travel”, in a trance travel through her tracks. We dreamed, we touched the sounds, we drove ourselves into a state of trance! The end of the set was obviously RAMelia, the unofficial TUNE of the YEAR! This strong song about RAM's wife succedeed to make us feel every word, every sound of it!


I don't have enough space in this article to tell you all about the amazing Armada Night, but let me tell you just one last thing: If you choose to stay home, instead of coming to the show, you just lost what was our State of Trance for the year! Next time, save money, plan your trip and come to party with your second family, the romanian trance family! We can't wait to meet you!

It was great to be at this event. It is great to be part of the trance family. It is great and I would never give up on it. I would never give up on HAPPINESS! TRANCE ON!
