“Originem” is the mainstage dancefloor destroyer that’s the official anthem for Andrew Rayel’s ‘Find Your Harmony’ radio show’s 150th episode.

 

Heroic. Dynamic. Modern. Andrew Rayel knows what trance-music fans want and he delivers every time. Today he sits atop the global trance music stage following years of hard work. With the enormous popularity of his weekly radio mixshow, “Find Your Harmony,” Andrew Rayel is ready to mark the milestone of the 150th episode.

An important element to “Originem” is Rayel’s signature piano-playing, a delicate delight for the emotions that feel like sunlight entering the soul. Lest the listener drift into an irreversible state of bliss, boom! A murderous 4/4 beat comes crashing down again accompanied by vast, harmonic synths. For the many fans of Andrew Rayel’s sound the world over, the music has never been better.

RODG TALKS ABOUT HIS UPCOMING ALBUM ‘FATE’, TOUR LIFE, AND STATEMENT ANNIVERSARY!

We met Rodg right after his stunning set at ASOT900 for a chat about his upcoming album ‘FATE’ , the direction his music is taking and some insights on his tour life; check out what this talented artist told us 🙂

 

TBA: Hi,  Rodg!! How you doin’ man?

R: I’m good, thank you

TBA: How does it feel to be playing again at A State Of Trance?

R: Amazing, it feels like coming home, it was great! I’ve played a lot of new records, had a different time slot, usually I am on early but tonight I played 1 to 2 am, it was great!  I am very happy!

TBA: Can you tell us something about the new album?

R: I can tell you I just played a lot of records from the album haha! You know like High On Life was a little bit deeper  than the album I did with Ruben ( togetheRR) ..  I think if I work on my own stuff in general it’s a little bit deeper side of the progressive trance  and that’s what I did again, it what came out of my fingers while producing it and I just tested out a lot of those new tunes and I am very happy with the reaction of the crowd, it’s amazing, a great feeling!

TBA: Are you also touring a lot these days?

R: I am touring a lot, I am going to the United States in 3 weeks and I am super excited

TBA: Which are the 3 things you always bring with you while traveling?

R: Obviously headphones, an extra charger pack and really comfy pants to sit in the planes

TBA: Are there any other upcoming gigs you are very excited about?

R:  Well I am very excited to return to one of the biggest festivals in the Netherlands, it’s not announced yet, but it will soon,just saying! And as I were telling you, I am going to the United States ,  I haven’t played so much in states and there are so many trance fans out there and I can’t wait to see them there and play for them and have a good time to make great parties.

TBA: Do you think the European crowd gets a different vibe from the American one?

R: Well, hard to say because I haven’t played much in the U.S.A. but in general you can see a lot of differences, in the Netherlands , the typical Dutch crowd is a little bit difficult,is a tough cookie to crack let’s say,a tough cookie, in Poland for instance it just goes off,  I love Poland, I love Mexico,…the energy is different everywhere, you know, I can say Spain has a fantastic energy for instance Ibiza..but well in Ibiza people come from everywhere so it’s hard to say if it is a Spanish thing haha. So it’s a different experience every time but it’ s also what makes it so much fun as nothing is the same ad you need to just feel the crowd and do whatever they want, at least I try to do whatever they want and make it work.

TBA: Back to your new album, how did you pick the title ’FATE’ ?

R: Fate basically means ….well you know life brings you certain things you might not expect  and in the last couple of years a lot of things I didn’t expect come my way, both in business and in personal life and I am very happy at the moment, I went through some difficult times but you it takes a leap of faith to change and on that time I was writing on the album so it was the only perfect title I could give it, it’s quite emotional but yeah, maybe I am an emotional guy! Haha!

TBA: Is there a tune in the album that challenged you the most?

R: Well there a couple of tunes that are not really trance and lean more towards techno but I do kept certain melodic elements, but these are quite experimental so yeah a bit challenging

TBA: Statement Recordings is on its 13th anniversary, what would you say to Ruben?

R: Ruben I love you mate, very happy to be on the label we are gonna do a lot of amazing stuff in the future, very happy to be part of it, thank you!

TBA: Awesome, thanks a lot and hope to see you very soon!

R: We will! Grazie mille!

ATFC & DAVID PENN RETURN TO ARMADA SUBJEKT WITH BANGING FOLLOW-UP TO ‘HIPCATS’: ‘DYNAMITE’

 Following the huge success of ‘Hipcats’ (#1 in Traxsource’s main chart, #1 in Beatport’s House chart, #12 in the Miami Buzz chart and #13 in the Cool Cuts chart), ATFC and David Penn have gone all out with their joint return to Armada Subjekt. Almost a year after the release of the aforementioned hit, the Anglo-Spanish House icons emerge with a track that might even trump its predecessor in terms of sheer infectiousness: ‘Dynamite’

 

Listen to ATFC & David Penn – Dynamite

 

Staking its claim as a booming prime-time cut, ‘Dynamite’ picks up where previous hit ‘Hipcats’ left off. Cooked up from an explosive mixture of impactful drums, crackling grooves and eruptive vocals, ‘Dynamite’ is bound to set fire to the dance floor and the scene as a whole. 

 

ATFC enjoyed major success around the turn of the century, charting in the Top 40 of the U.K. Singles chart with ‘In And Out Of My Life’ (#11, 1999), ‘Bad Habit’ (#17, 2000) and ‘Sleep Talk’ (#33, 2002). In the years thereafter, House icons such as Mark Knight, Mousse T, Nic Fanciulli and Roger Sanchezbegan to take notice of his slick productions and masterful grooves, a trademark ATFC has honed to perfection. Now riding the wave of his recent success with ‘Hipcats’, ATFC has more than earned his stripes by continually reinventing himself and his sound, and turning heads because of it.

 

One of Spain’s most well-known DJ/producers, David Penn has a number of worldwide House hits to his name, including mid-90s hit ‘The Night Train’ (#1 in the Netherlands, #12 in the U.K.), produced under his Kadoc moniker. Throughout his long and prosperous career, he has worked with some of House’s finest acts and labels, and remixed tracks from a whole raft of notable acts, including Simply Red, Mariah Carey, Junior Jack, Sandy Rivera, River Ocean feat India (Masters At Work), Boy George, Josh One, Kiko Navarro, Michael Gray, Lenny Fontana, Robbie Rivera, The Shapeshifters, Joey Negro and more. ‘Dynamite’ shows that David Penn is still on top of his game churning out grooves and hooking singles at an impressive rate.
