    Recent Trance News

    • Andrew Bayer Announces Double Album ‘Duality’ andrew-duality-album-feature-oz-edm-2022

      Andrew Bayer introduces ‘Duality’, a brand new double album. Two musical threads weave through the collected works of Andrew Bayer. One thread gave us the downtempo masterclass of 2013’s ‘If It Were You We’d Never Leave’ and the brilliant ‘In My Last Life’ LP. The other thread produced arena-sized anthems like 2014’s ‘Once Lydian’, his epic ‘Super Human’ with Asbjørn, and the club remix project ‘In My Next Life’. From the introspective to the explosive, these records are our community’s shared soundtrack: we’ve all got a favorite Andrew Bayer record. But they have come in so many forms and styles. It leaves us asking the question, who exactly is Andrew Bayer? It’s a question he’s asked himself. “Since day one, I have always struggled with how to present myself. I love making these experimental home listening albums of electronica and indie sounds, but I also love DJing and making trance bangers. On my last album, I had to remix the album in full after it was released to make the worlds fit. This time around I wanted to capture all the breadth, depth, and tension within that duality under one single project” – Andrew Bayer ‘Duality’ brings these two creative threads together under one album for the first time since his debut album ‘It’s Artificial’. Crafted over three years, Andrew Bayer is joined by an eclectic cast of collaborators old and new. ‘Duality’ pt. 1 explores Bayer’s passion for downtempo and indie-pop, while ‘Duality’ pt. 2 takes on his forward-thinking trance and progressive sound. Both are tied by Bayer’s unique vision, a shared sensibility, and the same group of collaborators. Today, you can hear a sample from each side: ‘Equal’ (with Asbjørn), and ‘Midnight’ (with Alison May). ‘Duality’ is the true follow-up to my first album ‘It’s Artificial’. It is by far my most raw and honest work, and I can’t wait to celebrate the album around the world with you all on tour” – Andrew Bayer ‘Duality’ pt. 1 lands on August 12, with pt. 2 following on October 28. Pre-order now available here. Duality Tracklist Part 1 Andrew Bayer & Vök – No Silence Andrew Bayer & Dave Thomas Junior – Speed Of Light Andrew Bayer, MOR & Grandfather Machine – Take Me Home Andrew Bayer & Asbjørn – American Boy Andrew Bayer & Run Rivers – Chaos Andrew Bayer & Red Dragons – Matriarch Andrew Bayer & OLAN – Under Pressure Andrew Bayer – 4/15/10 11:15 AM – Volcano Andrew Bayer – Thank You For Being With Us Andrew Bayer & Asbjørn – Equal Part 2 Andrew Bayer & Alison May – Midnight Andrew Bayer & Red Dragons – DNA Andrew Bayer & OLAN – Greater Chances Andrew Bayer – On Tape Andrew Bayer, Alison May & Grandfather Machine – I Would Andrew Bayer & Kaleena Zanders – Break The Rules Andrew Bayer – Let Go Andrew Bayer & Vök – What Is Real Andrew Bayer – If You Loop It, They Will Come Andrew Bayer & OLAN – Pulse

    • Giuseppe Ottaviani Announces New Album Horizons [Part 1] horizons-part-1-giuseppe-ottaviani-oz-edm-feature

      In the eyes of fans, Giuseppe Ottaviani has remained the most steadfast producer in the genre. Famed for his resolutely exacting productions, there’s been a long-held perception of him as a ‘known-quantity’. For those prepared to look deeper though, there’s always been another side to the composer, performer, and most recently – through his Masterclass production series. Giuseppe’s been a deft and artful innovator – balancing out that dependability with hidden-in-plain-sight advancements. That characteristic has now been channelled into his ‘Horizons’ project. Giuseppe’s Live 2.0 & 3.0 performances essentially turned clubs into recording studios, in turn beginning the production processes for 2019’s ‘Evolver’ album. Earlier than that even, with 2016’s ‘Alma’, his ‘Slow Emotion’ tracks had already begun playing with the idea of what Giuseppe ‘was’. In tandem, they were essentially laying the foundation blocks for ‘Horizons’. Commenting on this “modification” (as Giuseppe terms it), he observes that “change seems to have become our ‘constant’ of late. As such, I imagine that something of this nature was always going to be reflected in the ‘Horizons’ albums”. What that modification means in real terms is “music produced with less of a clubfloor focus to it. Adaptable, certainly, he suggests, but at this moment in time, not reliant upon.” Ottaviani’s most predominant shift in concentration has been in tone and song. Specifically, that’s meant utilising sounds from outside of his usual remit and a greatly increased emphasis on deeply meaningful and relatable lyrics. Indeed, ‘Horizons’ and ‘Evolver’ hold their own unique symbiosis: ‘Evolver’ being purely instrumental, while ‘Horizons [Part 1]’ is vocal-detailed near enough throughout. That, to no small degree, was due to the prevailing circumstances. Clubs were closed, but singers and songwriters were anything but. This allowed Giuseppe all the time necessary to pinpoint the voices that would work best with the music he was producing and rally them to its cause. With the artistic taps wide-open, ‘Horizons’ productions became an outpour. To such a degree in fact, that it quickly spilled the banks of the conventional album and was divided, naturally enough, into two. Through its advance-word singles, ‘Horizons [Part 1]’ has already outlined a cooler, deeper, more mindful tone to fans. That – often for the first time – has brought voices well known in other electronic music quarters to trance’s door. Among them have been songstresses like Monika Santucci, April Bender, Mila Josef and Natalie Shay. Giuseppe also draws on deeper tones from vocalists like Jan Burton and Dan Soleil, all of who collectively shape the unique sound of ‘Horizons [Part 1]’. At every opportunity, Giuseppe gently underscores that the two volumes of ‘Horizons’ don’t necessarily represent a permanent change. It’s a vocal yin to ‘Evolver’s instrumental yang, a sonic amendment that chimes more with our current times and an reflection of an artist more adept at adapting than conventional wisdom suggests. Turning to face summer 2022, the first part of ‘Horizons’ – Giuseppe Ottaviani’s new album project, is released on May 20. You can pre-order or save it via this link from today.

    • MaRLo & Achilles Join Forces For ‘Nothing Is Left’ marlo-nothing-is-left-feature-oz-edm

      After being premiered together on stage at MaRLo’s Melbourne Altitude show – ‘Nothing Is Left’ has arrived. Hot off the heels of chart topping hits including ‘This Way’ and ‘This Way,’ MaRLo join forces with Achilles a banging new record with elements of trance and techno that create a stellar production that is sure to stand out in both acts’ discographies. Played by Armin van Buuren in his A State Of Trance radio show, fans noted the track as a stand out of the show. ‘Nothing Is Left’ should be a blueprint for what a tech trance record should sound like. With massive drops, engaging melodies and vibrant sounds – the track is pretty much perfect. The record also showcases sounds and elements from each collaborator, as MaRLo’s signature trance sound is felt during the drop and Achilles’ hard hitting production is a constant throughout the track. Achilles’ is a new talent coming out of Melbourne and has quickly seen support from the likes of Tiesto, W&W, MORTEN, Will Sparks and plenty of other heavyweights. Joining forces with MaRLo for a track of this magnitude is only going to propel the gifted producer even further. Out now via Spotify and Beatport, stream the new track online or get your first listen below!
