On the Road: The Time Machine, Milan [+Extrema Global Music team reunion]

Well, this not fresh news, but we're going to Milan in a couple of days for The Time Machine! We're gonna experience a 6 hours b2b set with the amazing Extrema friends Manuel Le Saux and Astuni on March 18, all powered by Trance Gate events.

I will be able to enjoy a night full or trance classics. Even if some of the tracks may be older than me (much older), I am huge fan of classics and I am always giving my heart and soul on the dance floor when I hear them.

Sorted hotel, plane tickets one month ago and my excitment levels are going higher every day! I am finally gonna personally meet the two guys I am working with for a year now on the Extrema Global Music. Both of them, Manuel and Astuni are artists I'm following for quite a while now and to finally see them playing is one of this year's goals. I am pretty sure I don't have to worry about the tracklist, they are amazing at sorting tracks for an unforgetable night.

Aaaand I have some big plans for 2017 starting this trip! If everything goes well, this would be the #ontheroad vlog you'll see from me and one from many more to come! I will try to keep you posted as much as I can.

Will reunite in real life with the two guys and I can't wait. Even if for them is kinda of a short trip, I am planning to take advantage of it as much as I can. Also, I can't wait to recreate this pic. ^_^

ON PROMO: Nikolauss vs. Asteroid - Earthbound [Extrema Global Music]

This is huge! Two of our favorite Extrema artists, Nikolauss and Asteroid got together and delivered this beauty! Both great artists, both produced great tracks, but the result exceeded our expectations. Earthbound is THE track. The track you need to It is all about true feelings and real passion. Passion for nature, passion for sound, passion for life itself. It has a special energy to it. So, just click that play button, feel that energy and enjoy it to the fullest! Trance on! 

I was writing the other days the description for this track and I had to tell you more about it on the blog. Not just because it is a great track, you should know about, but because of the two people that made it.

Nikolauss is not just my boyfriend. He is not just my best friend. He is a great trance producer and I am quite proud about the path he chose. Watching him getting better every day is a privilege. Watching him create and being the first one to listen to his tracks is something I am looking forward everyday after work.

Asteroid is not just one of  the regular artists of Extrema Global Music. He is not only someone with a studio. He is a great guy, and I really hope to meet him soon. He is also studying in the field and trying to reach its potential everyday. Also, so open minded, so down to earth and supportive of all artists, not only his music.

And the track they just made it is perfect. My personal opinion. It gave me an energy to a last for a whole week at the office the other days and it made me feel a bit like a superhero. The lead, the breakdown, the baseline all come together perfectly and I can't be any happier to experience it from its early stages. And to show my appreciation and love for the track, I made a video for it.

I really hope you guys will like it and that you'll grab your copy from Beatport today: https://goo.gl/LA8rA3 . Track was already supported by Manuel on his Extrema 489! Also, don't forget to support these guys on social media, because they do deserve all the support in the world!

Interviewing artists #9: Manuel Le Saux (video)

This interview is a very special interview for me. Not only it is something a bit more different, but it is an interview with a very special person. This interview is that one, that is helping me to officially move the 'Interviewing Artists series' from blagaoana.com to trancers.ro, because I think doing this here is more suitable for trancers and because I wanna write more about design stuff on blagaoana.com.

As I said, this interview, the no.9, is with a very special person. A trance producer I am listening for a couple of years now, a producer I really love and appreciate, a person. A trance person. A very nice one. I am super excited I got to meet him (for now just online), to chat with him and to actually work with him on a super trance label. As you already know, from the title, this person is the one and only Manuel Le Saux. A very very nice and simple italian guy, that gave me the opportunity to do even more for this beautiful music, beside listening on a daily basis and supporting my favorite artists: working on Extrema Global Music and working with another 2 special guys: Astuni and Nikolauss. If you don't know it by now, I am the one behind all the Social Media posts and all the graphics/ visuals/ artworks you see on Beatport, Facebook, Youtube, etc.

Usually I am writing here all the questions and answers, but for this Skype interview I don't need to. You just have to hit the play button and enjoy it as much as I did.

I am writing here though, Manuel's top 10 biggest trance tracks of all time. It is one of the most difficult questions to ask a trance listener to do, but I had to. And I really love this top 10, because some of my favorite trnce tracks are there as well.

  1. Rank 1 - Airwave (Original Mix)
  2. Mystic Force - Psychic Harmony
  3. BINARY FINARY - 1998 [Paul van Dyk Remix]
  4. John O'Callaghan & Bryan Kearney - Exactly (Original Mix)
  5. Sasha- Xpander [Original Mix]
  6. Chicane - Saltwater (Original Mix)
  7. Jens Lissat Project : Energy Flow
  8. OceanLab Satellite (Original Above & Beyond Mix)
  9. Underworld - Born Slippy
  10. Darren Porter - Spellbound (Original Mix)

I still have the thrills from when I did ths interview. I am a very emotional person and I was pretty nervous about it. But Manny, was so kind and helped me get through my emotions and everything went pretty smoothly.

I wanna thank him for accepting my invitation, thank you guys for watching it and don't forget to follow Trancers.ro on Facebook, Youtube and Instagram, because lots of awesome things are going to happen. Also, we're trying to put together a very special contest for you, so stay close!

Keep supporting your favorite artists, keep listening to this awesome music and trance on!

ON PROMO: Manuel Le Saux & TrancEye - Endless Horizon (Original + Nikolauss #140 Remix)

Lately I am listening  a lot of promos that Andrei is receiving, so I was thinking of starting a new thread here on Trancers: ON PROMO. I think some of the guys are really talented and some tracks are really really good. Even if they are smaller producers, even if they are bigger ones, they all deserve the support. You know, I always tried to support the artist I like, no matter what.

And how should I start this thread, if not with a huge track? This week, my favorite ”on promo” is Manuel Le Saux & TrancEye - Endless Horizon. Both the original and the #140 remix from Nikolauss. I won't go into technical talks here, I will talk just about my opinion about the tracks. Massive ones, powerful ones, these tracks are exactly what trance is all about: energy, feelings, emotion, life. I have them on repeat as I write this article. I had them on repeat for a couple of hours. That much I like them and that much I don't want ”the dream” to end.

If you wanna fell what I fell right now, you just have to close your eyes (after you red the article; haha) and imagine yourself running through the forest with me. Running and feeling no pain. Feeling just the energy. Feeling the power. We're not running from something. We're running to something. We're running to that  Endless Horizon. That Endless Horizon filled with joy. With happiness. With emotion. This is quite a collaboration and for sure one of my favorites from Manuel's album - Destiny. Also, the remix from Nikolauss is great. I could start talking about it even more, but I am afraid I won't be as objective as I should, since I heard this remix while in the making and I know all the ups and downs of it. (Living with a trance producer has its perks :D)

I really appreciate Manuel Le Saux and his work. He is a really great music man. A really great man. Some of you may know I already collaborate with him on his Extrema Global Music label, helping with Social Media and all the design work. Those new artworks are just the start of our journey. Working with him is pretty great and I am glad to be part of the family (next to Astuni and Andrei / Nikolauss).

I always loved also, what TrancEye did for trance music and my love for this music genre. He is amazing! I will never forget the emotions, the feelings, the goosebumps his tracks gave me. He is an amazing trance producer and I think he is not getting the recognition he deserves. And there it is. Another reason for me to start writing about tracks I like, artists I love and true music. True emotion. So more people hear about it, start to like it and enjoy the sounds of our souls.

The original track is not new for some of you, since you may have heard Manuel's album, but the remix is. Both, will be released as singles next week, exclusively on Beatport. So stay close. And don't forget to grab your copy. Trance on!
