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!

Results are here. TRANCE Tune of the Year as U chose!

A State Of Trance 694 was a huge episode. Top 20 Tune of the Year was as always full of mixed feelings, but this time it made trancers really really happy. The top is a really strong one and it speaks for itself.

Aly and Fila had an amazing year and without doubt deserve those 4 positions in the top. Andrew Rayel, Cosmic Gate, Alex Morph, Marlo, Bobina are regular names in this show, great producers and their winnings come naturally.

Top 5 is perfect. Top 3 is brilliant. Trance gone BIG this year! We're really happy with this one. What about you? Voted for something else?

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!

Detalii despre artisti:

Alexander Popov (Dj set)

Este unul din cei mai populari producatori de trance si progressive din Rusia si nu numai. Artistul Armada Music este sustinut indeaproape de nume sonore ale tranceului cum ar fi: Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin, Cosmic Gate, Paul van Dyk sau Markus Schulz. Are in portofoliu evenimente precum Global Gathering, A State of Trance 600, Kazantip si primul album semnat cu Armada Music - Personal Way, album ce s-a bucurat pana acum numai de feedback pozitiv.


Este una din cele mai cunoscute vocaliste din lumea trance ului si are numai colaborari de exceptie. Armin van Buuren, Rex Mundi, Dash Berlin, Markus Schulz, Lange si Aly and Fila sunt doar cateva din numele alaturi de care a lucrat. Este o prezenta constanta in show urile lui Armin, mai ales Armin Only. Una din cele mai cunoscute si iubite colaborari este cea cu DJ RAM pentru binecunoscuta RAMelia, piesa anului 2013 - piesa tribut pentru sotia acestuia, piesa plina de sentimente si trairi.


Nascut in acelasi oras ca Tiesto, Breda, Mark are toate atuurile sa ajunga unul dintre marii producatori olandezi pe trance & progressive, daca nu cumva a facut asta deja! Productiile sale geniale au ajuns in playlisturile lui Tiesto, Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Judge Jules, Gareth Emery, Markus Schulz si au fost semnate la Armada Music, Black Hole si Fektive Recordings. A impresionat o lume intreaga cu setul sau transmis live din Olanda atunci cand a mixat in primavara acestui an la marele eveniment celebrativ “A State Of Trance 650” a lui Armin van Buuren. Se zvoneste ca Mark Sixma va primi pe mainile sale propriul sau sub-label in cadrul grupului de label-uri Armada Music, iar acest lucru este un pas major in cariera tanarului artist olandez.


Unul dintre cei mai tineri producatori de trance & progressive ajunge in fata trancerilor din Romania. Poate cel mai in forma si in voga artist din noua generatie de producatori si DJs de muzica uplfting, genul cel mai pur din zona de muzica trance, Simon O’Shine, promite ca dj la fel de mult ca si producator si rupe trancefloor-urile peste tot in lume, cu un stilul sau personal euphoric si emotional, o muzica cu suflet cum este caracterizata de cunoscatorii si devoratorii de muzica trance. Prezent in mod frecvent in playlisturile lui Armin van Buuren, Simon este deja un preferat al publicului avizat si nu numai, cu fiecare productie si remix al sau fiind foarte votat laFuture Favorite, titlu pe care l-a si castigat, nu doar o data ci chiar de cateva ori in radio show-ul saptamanal a lui Armin van Buuren, A State Of Trance. Ca si DJ pe peste tot pe unde a mixat atat in Europa dar si in America de Sud, a strans un public numeros de fiecare data, public adus rapid in extaz de o combinatie perfecta a ritmurilor energice cu pasaje de breakdown foarte melodioase cu iz orchestral.


Pe plan muzical, Alexandra a reusit o premiera pentru muzica electronica romaneasca: impreuna cu DJ-ii Snatt & Vix, a semnat o piesa la casa de discuri Armada Music, condusa de DJ-ul de renume mondial Armin Van Buuren. Astfel, Cold Shower, melodia compusa si interpretata de Alexandra, a devenit rapid una dintre cele mai apreciate piese de muzica trance. In plus, videoclipul oficial Cold Shower a adunat o multime de reactii frumoase din partea publicului si a mass-mediei: peste 500.000 de vizualizari pe YouTube.

Muzica face parte din viata ei, iar visul copilariei sale, de a canta pe scene mari, alaturi de nume celebre, s-a impletit cu pasiunea pentru muzica electronica. Cu dedicare si perseverenta, Alexandra si-a propus sa aduca si curentul trance romanesc in atentia artistilor straini. Si a reusit, caci spectacolele ei pe aceeasi scena cu celebrii DJ Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Above and Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Moby – din cadrul unor evenimente de impact ale muzicii trance, precum Liberty Parade, Mission Dance Weekend ori Armada Night – au dus la propulsarea pieselor sale (Cold Shower, In My Eyes, Love My World, I’ll Be Fine, Let’s Fall In Love, Goodbye, Lifetime Change) pe primele pozitii din topurile radiourilor de profil.

Snatt & Vix reprezinta un duo de succes din Romania care a contribuit considerabil de-a lungul anilor la promovarea muzicii trance in Romania dar si dincolo de hotarele ei. Pentru ei muzica trance a devenit un fel de religie si mod de viata! Inca de la inceputul anilor 2000 cei doi urmareau si ascultau productiile de acest gen promovate in cadrul unor emisiuni radio online. Urmatorul pas a fost lansarea in calitate de dj, pornind de la aparitii modeste, apoi din ce in ce mai aclamati de public au inceput sa fie prezenti in multe cluburi din Romania precum si la festivaluri si evenimente alaturi de nume mari ale muzicii electronice: Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Markus Schulz, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond, Sander van Doorn, Dash Berlin si multi altii.

Last week, on Friday – 25th of April 2014, the Romanian Trance familly gathered for Armada Night with Aly and Fila, Christina Novelli, Snatt & Vix and Ellie White. A night to remember as most of us would say. A night where we all brethed the same music, touched the most amazing sounds!


We had an amazing night, full of great tracks and we definitely weren’t afraid of 138! Fila, from Aly and Fila had a perfect set! And perfect is a small word for this. I personally enjoyed every minute of it and couldn’t stand. I was dancing all around and feeling the music! I saw people dreaming. I saw people crying of happiness. We all, forgot about real life outside the tent event. We forgot about problems. We forgot about pain. We lost ourselves into a fan-tas-tic set. We lost ourselves into the God’s music.


Snatt & Vix, the romanian trance DJs had the first set, a really good warm up set. It really prepared us for the upcoming sets of Christina and Fila. It took us in this ”preparing journey” for what it seemed to be the greatest trance event from Romania for 2014. They promote this genre everytime they have the chance and for that the romanian trance family is gratefull. After two smaller events with Arctic Moon and Johan Gielen, they exceeded every expectation with Armada Night! They had a few songs at the end of their set with Ellie White too. Ellie is a romanian vocalist that fell in love with this music and has some colaborations with Snatt and Vix.


The second set of the night was the one of Christina Novelli. I must say she really surprised me. She had a good set. Even if it was more electro than I expected, it was nice to see her perfoming on the stage. Not every trancer there enjoyed it, but it was something else than we were used to hear from her. The first half of the set made me feel like I was at Ultra Music Festival, full of this big room music. Not a huge fan, but I don’t hate it either. The second half was a bit more like the ”Christina we use to know”: a set with more vocals and a bit more trancy. And it was nice to sing along my friends on this. It felt good. We were preparing for Filas uplifting vocals and we were aware that at the end of the night we might lose our voices. Even though Christina’s set was no longer than an hour, it was a nice energic set.


The third one was Fila. This man is like God for all uplifters from the trance family. Some of us had the chance to talk with him at the Meet and Greet before the event, and let me tell you he is an amazing man! We were a bit nervous, but once he entered the room we felt such a joy and relaxation we finally meet the man that is producing and promoting such great music. There were questions about what he uses when producing, about what he prepared for the night, but it was nice to find out that TRANCE music means to him HAPPINESS. And I guess he’s not the only one that feels that way. He finds inspiration when he’s happy. He’s happy when he’s in front of the crowd. He’s happy when he listens to trance. He’s happy when he discovers a new artist. He’s happy to promote and help him get better. Fila is a great guy, and it was great to have a beer with him and talk about all of this.

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!

Well, cei ce ma citesc deja stiu ca sunt un trance addict fara sperante de recuperare. Iubesc muzica asta, o respir in fiecare zi si nu ma vad traind fara ea. Asa ca, incerc sa imi satisfac orice pofte apar in acest domeniu. Siiiiiii uite asa, pe 25 aprilie ma teleportez in Bucuresti pentru o noapte fan-tas-ti-ca alaturi de Aly and Fila, Christina Novelli si Snatt and Vix!

Abia astept sa ii revad pe toti membrii #trancefamily din Romania si nu numai! Abia astept sa ma bucur de cateva ore de trance live si o atmosfera ce sigur ca fi incendiara!

Abia astept sa o vad pe Christina Novelli mixand. Da, mixand. O vocalista destul de buna ce in ultima vreme se pare ca experimenteaza lucruri noi, insa lucruri ce ii plac de ceva vreme. Am vazut cateva feedback uri în ceea ce o priveste si abia astept sa ma conving singura ca fata asta chiar se pricepe!

Abia astept sa il vad pe Fila mixand cel mai bun uplifting din lume si sa ating sunetele iar si iar! Albumul lansat anul trecut, albumul de remixuri ce apare acusi m-au convins din nou de cat de minunati pot oamenii astia ca producatori, ca tranceri!  Si stiu ca nu sunt singura!

Abia astept sa vad ce au mai pregatit Snatt and Vix si cu se ne mai incanta de data aceasta. Baietii au fost destul de productivi in ultima vreme organizand evenimente trance pentru comunitatea din Romania, dar si lansand piese minunate ce au innebunit trance ul de pretutindeni.

Pe 25 aprilie dati-ma pierduta la Arenele Romane. Tot ce va conta pentru o singura noapte va fi dragostea pentru trance si bucuria de a o impartasi alaturi de voi. Spuneam mai demult ca Trance music is connecting awesome people! Ei bine, repet asta. Și o sa o repet pana in panzele albe. Am ajuns sa cunosc o groaza de oameni prin intermediul lui si multi imi sunt prieteni foarte buni acum. Trance music all the way!

Highlighturile tarzii ale Muzicii Trance in 2013

In urma cu ceva zile i-am intrebat pe trancerii ieseni care a fost pentru ei highlightul muzicii trance in 2013. Iar aici am inclus artist, melodie, eveniment si orice altceva le mai trecea lor prin minte.

Unele raspunsuri erau previzibile, altele contradictorii.

Un raspuns destul de interesant si intrigant a fost ” highlightul anului in materie de #trance e aceasta combinatie cu aspect de competitie dintre AvB si a lui album Intense cu accente usor pop-ish, comercialo-house-ficate, si purul uplifting dat de Aly & Fila prin Quiet storm!”. Personal,nu sunt un fan al lui Intense, insa cred ca asta era urmatorul pas pentru Armin. Muzica evolueaza si evolueaza destul de repede in ultima vreme. Chiar daca sunt multi care l-au criticat, omul este liber sa produca ce ii place si ce le place fanilor. Sunt multi care inca raman la ideea ca Imagine a fost si ramane cel mai bun album al lui Armin din toate timpurile si eu. Insa albumul a fost lansat in 2008, mai exact cu 5 ani in urma cand muzica de atunci era o cu totul alta. Din lupta celor doua albume, eu aleg fara doar si poate Quiet Storm, album ce il asteptam lansat cu sufletul la gura, album ce abia asteptam sa il ascult cap coada si sa ajunga pe repeat. Este si acum parte din playlistul meu si va ramane mult timp de acum incolo. Aly and Fila, acest duo egiptean reusesc cu brio de fiecare data sa produca sunete perfecte!

Melodia anului se pare ca a fost RAMelia, un uplifting al lui DJ Ram impreuna cu Susana. Melodia este intr-adevar una din cele mai bune din anul acesta. Chiar daca unii ar spune ca nu e prin constructie si alte detalii tehnice, RAMelia ramane una din cele mai sensibile piese pe care le-am ascultat in ultimii ani. E o poveste trista in spatele ei, insa fiorii ce te trec cand o asculti nu iti dau pace. Chiar daca sotia DJ-ului a murit si totul a dus la o asemenea piesa, trancerii din lumea intreaga au fost alaturi de el si fredoneaza de fiecare data cand pot aceasta melodie. De la versuri pana la linia melodica, totul te face parca sa simti chiar tu fiecare cuvant, fiecare sunet, fiecare sentiment ce l-a trait DJ ul cand a compus asa ceva. Sentimentele se pare ca sunt mereu pe primul plan pentru tranceri si de aceea si dezamagirea lor cand mari DJ ai lumii trance nu au prezentat-o in topurile lor ca fiind No. 1. Oficial poate nu e, insa neoficial va fi melodia trance preferata a multor ascultatori mult timp de acum incolo.

Artistul anului din ce spun trancerii ieseni este Andrew Rayel, moldovean de-al nostru de peste Prut. Evolutia lui din acest an a fost una ascendenta ce-i drept si a cucerit multi ascultatori. Numeroasele remix-uri, au cucerit imediat inima publicului. Clarity (Zedd) este cel mai popular remix al sau. L-am ascultat si eu de nenumarate ori, mi-am ”rupt plamanii” cantandu-l la evenimentele la care am participat si de fiecare data cand am avut ocazia. Fanii l-au postat si repostat de n ori pe profilele personale, fapt ce ma face sa il citez pe un membru al comunitatii trance iesene care spune despre Clarity ca ” Mi-a dat in cap, mi-a spalat creierul si a sters cu mine pe jos.”. Este clar ca amprenta lui Rayel pe multe melodii ii inebuneste pe fani si ii face sa il iubeasca drept artist.      Au fost mentiuni si legate de labelul anului sau evenimentul anului. Ei bine, aici mentiunile sunt destul de variate. De la Mental Asylum si AfterGlow la Kearneage, Indecent Noise si Black Hole, multe label-uri au castigat fani prin artistii cu care au semnat si prin ce au lansat anul trecut. Evenimentele mentionate sunt Luminosity si ASOT600, evenimente la care membrii chiar au participat sau doar le-au urmarit indeaproape. Luminosity este dupa mine cel mai important eveniment pentru trance-ul de pretutindeni, insa ASOT600 a fost si el destul de mare. Avand in vedere ca s-a extins in mai multe tari decat in alti ani si ca au fost atatea modalitati prin care puteai sa fii acolo chiar daca nu erai fizic in fata scenei, este evenimentul la care au participat cred mai multi oameni decat niciodata. Streamingurile live atat video cat si audio au adus un plus evenimentului si l-au adus mai aproape de ascultatori. Discutiile aparute in Social Media despre eveniment au avut un thread atat de mare incat (cel putin eu) nu am mai putut tne pasul uneori. Da, ASOT600 poate fi numit evenimentul anului in materie de trance pe 2013 datorita acoperirii de care a avut parte.

Chiar daca am mentionat doar cateva din raspunsurile comunitatii trance iesene, acestea au fost cele mai populare. De mentionat este faptul ca membrii sunt diferiti, iar raspunsurile intocmai. Chiar daca Melodia anului a fost RAMelia, titlul acesta l-au primit si melodii precum: Napalm Poet, Exodus sau Apprehension. La artisti lista e deja foarte lunga si discutiile prea multe pentru a le trece aici.

Sunt sigura ca sunt persoane care vor sustine ce am scris. Sunt sigura ca sunt persoane ce vor contrazice ce am scris. Ei bine, sunteti invitati sa va exprimati tot va trece prin gand! Fie direct aici pe site, fie prin comentarii la articol pe unde este share-uit, va astept cu intrebari!
