About David Gravell

On the international electronic dance music scene for a mere five years, David Gravell exhibits both the poise and the good-natured charm of a young gentleman. His boyish good looks and even-tempered nature hide a deep well of musical talent and ambition. While on tour with his elder and wiser mentor, Andrew Rayel, on the latter’s successful MOMENTS World Tour, Gravell showed that he had the work ethic and stamina to hang with the big boys. Today, Gravell is one of the trance music genre’s more innovative DJs/producers with releases including, “The Road,” “Explore” and “Energy.” Gravell’s fresh touch is also lent to big-name remixes, including Armin van Buuren’s “Communication.” In 2015, Gravell was nominated at the International Dance Music Awards (IDMAs) in the categories of “Best Trance DJ” and “Best Breakthrough DJ.” For this young producer, the future looks bright.

EXCLUSIVE: DAVID GRAVELL TALKING ABOUT “ENERGY”,NEW COMPILATION “DISCOVER” AND HIS UPCOMING ARTIST ALBUM!!

So , here we go with another interview made during the incredible ASOT night in Utrecht, and let me tell you, this one was in my bucket list for quite a long time.
A few months ago, before the full line up was revealed, I shot an e-mail to David Gravell’s management, asking for the permission to interview the artist during the A State Of Trance Festival in Utrecht, knowing he plays there every year I thought I had a chance…but unfortunately I found out that David was not going to play there this time!
Now, telling you I was bummed is an understatement, I really felt miserable, not only I was going to miss one of his insane sets, I wouldn’t be able to meet him either!!
But, it is what it is and I tought to myself: maybe better luck next time….
Then, during the night, just while I was waiting to interview one of the artists, Justine,( one of the lovely PR girls’ from Armada) came to me saying: “Jess, David Gravell is here, would you like to meet him?”
I think I was about to hug her for how happy I felt…and so, here we go, another dream came true, let’s meet the amazing DAVID GRAVELL !!
J: Hi David, thanks a lot for supporting The Backstage Access, how you doing?
D: I am doing very good, I just came back from Jerusalem, I was there for the first time and did a show on Tuesday, it was amazing, a lot of trance fans, and after this I just came back home, and then I just came straight to ASOT. So I am here, meeting a few friends, my management…also my mum and dad are here, I saw them on the MainStage, and because I am playing here every year, this year,even if I am not playing….  they still booked an hotel in the surroundings and came, they always wanna see ASOT.
I normally play at ASOT each year, but we discussed a bit about it  and we chosen to do a few other ASOT so I am skipping this one but I will be back on other ASOT festivals. But even so, being here, seeing my friends, Armin, you know…it’s always very nice to be in this chilled environment, where you are with all your friends, you know every djs, it’s very good.
It’ s just like a family, it’s just so nice.
J: What does ASOT mean to you?
D: Oh, I’ve got this question a lot…My first ASOT was with my friends and I remember that I was in the car listening to the music and then I thought it was different from everything else, it was little bit special, magical, what I love is that everyone is different, everyone is loving the music, everyone is uniting and coming together to celebrate, there are a lot of other festivals, for sure, but this particular one is nice and unique, I haven’t seen anything like this!!
J: I know you are releasing a new tune in two weeks…
D: Yeah, how do you know??
J: A little bird told me …
D: Haha, ok that’s cool because I actually have a new release coming in two weeks, I can’t say the name yet but   Armin is playing it already for half a year and I am very looking forward to it…it will introduce you to my new sound  I am working on and it has something unique in itself.
 
 
Now . we know which song is it hehe 🙂
and you can find more about the release in my previous article here
J: When will your album be released?
D:  Well first I am gonna release a mix compilation, so I will have tracks from other djs, and there will be some new tracks of mine as well, but my own artist album will be ready probably next year, I am already working on it, it’s almost finished  but you know… It’s nice to change a little bit things on, when you are working a little bit ahead  of time… because I like to do that, so first of all there will be this mix compilation in April with a few new tracks to introduce my new sound, and the name of the compilation (Discover)  will be also introducing my brand for my live shows, so I am actually working on my live shows as well with new visuals and new interesting stuff to make it more engaging when I perform live
J: Are you using any special tools at the moment in your studio? 
D: Oh that’s a very interesting question, I got very inspired by Deadmau5, I am a huge fan of him and he released a lot of his own plug ins, just  like last year he released a plug in called Serum and I’ve been a huge fan of it cause it allows you to do what you want, you have to be a bit into the sound design level, but if you get to understand the synth you are going to pull any kind of sound off it ; what I really like about it is that you have like the synth plug in, but you also have the fx plug in, so next to the normal plug in you can make very weird fx , I have been using it for loads of strange effects on my tracks right now and also I actually bought the new Virus, I mean the hardware synth and it has all the old school trance sounds in it , Orjan Nilsen said to me: “You have to get this one !!” and so I bought it last year and it’s amazing, it really has the analog sound so I’ve been using it in every track , it has a powerful sound and you don’t need too many plug ins to get that sound because it’s analog and I love it, it’s cool!!
J.Where does your inspiration come from?
D: My inspiration is coming from everywhere, like when I am traveling, I get ideas, when I watch a movie I get ideas, and when I get an idea, I kinda work on it and more ideas are flowing, you can see my brain like a hard drive with all those great memories from old school trance, all those things… and when I start making music I am just able to figure out  exactly what the track is gonna be in the end so, I think the inspiration is coming from a lot of places, from everywhere. I listen to every kind of music and it makes it more interesting for me that understanding different kinds of music makes it easier to get melodies for different kind of stuff.
J: Thanks a lot Danny, it’s been a pleasure chatting with you and hope to catch up with you again soon with your next releases!!
To be honest with you, if it wasn’t because the interview schedule was crazy that night, I think I would have asked him other 100 questions ..such an inspiring, friendly and open minded talented guy… so I hope we’ll have the chance to continue our conversation very soon 🙂

Up Close And Personal With Kimberly Hale

 

Hi everyone!

Today I got a pretty special treat for you: an exclusive interview with one of the most talented songwriters/singers of the trance scene, I am happy to introduce you to the lovely Kimberly Hale from the United Kingdom!

Let me tell you that her angelic voice and magical lyrics will charm you and bring you to another place, she will cast a spell on you…you have been warned!!

 

With a string of emotionally and stylistically diverse releases and compilations through multiple dance labels including Statement!, Armada, Amsterdam Trance, Raz Nitzan, Sir Adrian, Discover Group, EMI, and more…Kimberly’s tunes and collabs have been supported on worldwide radio shows and DJ sets by the top international superstars Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, Paul Oakenfold, Max Graham, Andy Moor, Lange, Judge Jules, Simon Patterson, Marcus Schossow, Nifra, Ruben de Ronde, Susana, Audrey Gallagher, Jes, Beat Service, Pedro del Mar, Omnia and many more…

So, let’s welcome Kimberly on TheBackstageAccess!!

 

K: Thank you so much for asking me to be here with you and your readers, Jess!  

 

 

J: Could you tell us how and when did it all start in the music industry for you?

 

 

 

K: I do distinctly remember sitting in the bathtub when I was 3 years old and saying to myself that i was going to be female Elvis when I grew up. haha My parents watched a lot of Elvis movies in the Bible belt.  After that it was piano lessons and southern baptist church choir at quite a young age.  I think for a lot of us, music is a lifetime path! 

 

 

J: What inspires you when creating a tune ?

 

K: A few times it has been a choice between having a nervous breakdown or writing a song.  Crises are very fertile moments for songs and some of my best received tunes were written in those moments.  Plus I saved some money that would have been spent on therapy!   haha 

 

Otherwise, I would say when writing on piano I need a lot more internal and external inspiration — life events and strong feelings, poetry, or listening to so much of the great music we have in this genre for example.   

 

Writing over tracks, it seems to be a lot more instinctive and things just sort of come to me out of the air.  

 

J: a couple  of my favorite tunes you wrote are Moment Of Truth and  All In, could you tell us something about them?

 

K: Thank you Jess!  It’s funny you single those tracks out as they were the first vocals I wrote over tracks in a very long time!  Most of the other releases I have had recently have been me starting with nothing but my piano and having to write the structure/chord progression as well.  

 

Suddenly, not only did I get the tracks given to me first, but super fun and inspiring tracks that made my job really easy!  They both came out very effortlessly and I freestyled it completely.    

 

“Moment Of Truth” was such a blast and inspired me rhythmically.  

“All In” was so melodically developed that I felt the only choice I had was to follow and dance around with Ruben’s lead which made it very simple to write!  The lyrics and words i did not think about at all either.  They literally wrote themselves. i edited slightly in the honing stage. 

 

 

J: Are there any artist you would love to cooperate with?

 

K: I don’t know why I always feel coy when someone asks me this question!  It’s not like you’re asking me something naughty!  hahaha 

 

 

J: If you were not a singer what else would you like to do?

 

K: There have been times when I had so many friends coming to me for counselling that I could have been a full-time therapist/ muse!  I’m an enfp so that is definitely in the skill set! I really want to write a novel one day!  

 

J: For those who are not familiar with the whole creative process, could you explain a bit how it works for you when you are asked to write something ?

 

K: It’s definitely a different process when I am writing on piano or over a track as I mentioned earlier.  But one thing is that for both, a physical warmup is very important and I always seem to do better when I stretch out completely like I am about to pole vault or something like this. 😉   I think any tension in the body can inhibit flow!   

 

I can write songs quickly but I generally spend a couple weeks at least perfecting and honing as they always get better when I do that.  I am normally not happy with the lyrics unless they seem to have multiple meanings and I have three points of view which I typically like to incorporate.  I test each song this way to make sure they hold up most of the time.  I’m not sure if anyone else notices it or not, but it’s important to me! haha 

 

 

J: The most important tune to you so far and why?

 

K: It’s really hard to say on that one as many of my tunes have been instrumental in leading me to another place.  Sometimes you only get one opportunity to move a certain direction and each of those markers has been a moment of truth to me 🙂

 

J: What do you love to do in your spare time ?  

K: socialising with friends, health and fitness,  i’ve been taking ballet classes lately too. 

 

 

 

J: Your relationship with social media and your fans ?

 

K:I really wish I could figure out a way to better reach the fans on Facebook.  Since they started with the algorithms, i think it’s really made everything feel so stagnant.  I’ve thought about sending smoke signals!   haha I feel pretty sad and dejected in there now!  And most of all, I feel really terrible that it’s so hard to reach the fans.  :'(  At least Armada music and A State of Trance posted some videos of our music lately which did receive a nice response so I was grateful for that.  

 

On a bright note, my instagram seems to be doing better a tiny bit and I’m finding the nature of the site a lot more calming, fun and positive than Facebook at the moment.  

 

 

J: Describe yourself in 3 words 🙂

 

K: Perceptive

Creative

Nutter 

 

 

 

 

J: Please leave a message for TheBackstageAccess readers 🙂

 

K:  Thank you for loving and caring so much about the music!  Your energy is what makes this all complete!  Thanks for giving us the space on this earth and the constant support to create heavenly meaningful things!  Lots of Love!   Kimberly Xox

CATCHING UP WITH JENNIFER RENE ABOUT MUSIC, TRAVELS AND HORROR MOVIES!!

jen

I am going to treat my readers with such a sweet trance candy today…

One of my favorite artists, Jennifer Rene, has been so kind to accept this interview with me. Let’s see what she is going to reveal to us..

Hi Jen, thanks for taking the time to do this interview with me!!

Thank you so much for having me! It’s my pleasure!

I’d like to know how and when did it all start for you? (I heard you have always loved to sing since you were a child..)

Music has always been a big part of my life since I was very little. My dad is a musician and so I started performing at church with him at a young age. I was in choir and show choir thru ought school and I’ve been writing songs since I was very little. I always loved dance music but really decided to go in that direction once I turned 21 and went to my first real club in Chicago. I saw the DJ’s “Blank & Jones” and the energy and vibe of the place was surreal, I knew then and there that this was what I wanted to do!

You worked with so many big names… Which cooperation challenged you the most and why?

I have had such great experiences working with producers. With each one I learn something new. I would say the one where I felt the most pressure to do a good job was when I was in the studio with Armin for “Fine Without You.” I only had one song out at the time and Armin was a really big name. I wanted to make sure I did a good job with writing a song with him since it was such an amazing opportunity. I was lucky that it turned out pretty well!

Being a singer, a Dj and a radio show host must really keep you busy, so how do you manage it all?

It can get quite hectic at times, but the good thing is that it never feels like work and I love every party of this career! I haven’t started my radio show or podcast yet but it’s something I plan on doing. I need to make sure I have adequate time to do that and lately I’ve been focused on writing and recording new music! I also go to school full time so I do have a very full plate. It’s all a blessing though.

What are the ups and downs of traveling so much?

There are so many ups about traveling! Meeting new people and making friends from all over the world, experiencing new cultures and seeing some of the most beautiful sites you could ever see. I love going to countries where I feel completely out of my element because it’s there where I discover so much about myself. Traveling and performing makes me come ALIVE! The downs would be the jet lag, long layovers, and having to leave a place or people that you really fell in love with not knowing when you’ll return.

I known you are a great horror movies lover (just like me) which film scared you the most?

Ahhh you love horror!!! This makes me so happy!! Haha yes I am a big lover of the horror genre, one of my favorite scary movies would have to be The Exorcist which I think tops most people’s lists. I also really love Amityville Horror, The Strangers, The Conjuring, The Descent, and Rosemary’s Baby. I could honestly go on and on haha.

I’ve red about that project still in the back of your mind about owning a club called “colors” and totally loved the idea (especially the white room) would you like to tell us more ?

Ahh yes! That’s the inspiration behind my upcoming radio show! I’m a lover of so many genres and always thought it would be cool to go to a club where you could hear different genres in different themed rooms. I’ve also always seen colors in music so I put two and two together! Owning a club is probably something that will never happen but having a radio show inspired by the same is sure to happen!

What inspires you in writing your songs?

What inspires me is things that have happened in my life. Love, heartbreak, anger, sadness, loss of friendship, all those things and more inspire me. I write from the heart and from my own personal experiences. Even when something bad happens in my life I turn it into a positive because I know I can write a song about it and hopefully there will be someone out there who can relate to it and enjoy my song.

Can you tell us something about your last productions and give us a sneak peek of your future projects?

I was really happy to be a part of Solid Stone’s debut album and have two songs on there “Heart Call”and “Pushing Up” .Working with Solid Stone is always something I enjoy and we work really well together. I never know what he’s going to send me after I’ve sent him a vocal and it’s always surprising in the best possible way. My recent collab “Smile”with DRYM was one I had been working on for awhile. I had been talking with DRYM for over a year about a collab and they sent me this instrumental that was so beautiful and I heard the lyrics right away over it! Right now I’m currently writing non-stop to new collaborations and some of my own material and I’m very excited where everything is going. I can’t wait to share it with the world!

ALEXANDER POPOV PRESENTS …..INTERPLAY 2016

Alexander Popov

The second volume of his acclaimed series named after his successful radioshow is finally here
with 20 tracks forged by the likes of Andrew Rayel, David Gravell, Husman, Matvey Emerson & Stephen Ridley, Suspect 44, Alexander Popov himself and more.

The Russian mastermind doesn’t need any introduction being into the scene since almost 10 years, he treated his audience with some trance gems such as “ Vapor Trails”, “My World” (feat. Kyler England), “ Lost Language”,“Quantum” and “Paradise” ( with TLN feat.Christina Novelli) ; you can find a lot of these classical hits in this compilation, some of them remixed by one of the scene’s leading artists above mentioned and some other in their original version.

So, let’s take a closer look to this record of epic proportions clearly delivered to please all the trance lovers on earth:
well guys, I promise you, taking the time to treat yourself with such an ear candy is going to be the best part of your day!!

As soon as “SPACEWALK” breaks in it instantly hits you with its addictive drops, a very catchy, flows well and generally feel-good type of track;

“PARADISE”’s sweet beats and Christina Novelli’s unique voice blend together amazingly giving you a massive fix of dreamy vibes,

“I KNOW YOU CARE” it’s one of that tune that affects you on more than one level, both physically and cerebrally, while “EIFORYA” is made to get you that “trance family festival like feeling” we all love…In a blink of an eye you will find yourself standing front row at your favorite party wishing and praying it won’t end.

Alexander Popov’s “WORLD LIKE THIS” builds up nice and slow progressing beautifully into an emotional melody.

“QUASAR” and “HOPE FADES” elevate it to the next level with their powerful drops and trippy pads..goosebumps are 100% guaranteed.

“FELL FOR YOU” overwhelms you with sweet vocals and a dance floor destroyer bass line.

“MIMESIS” drags you in its spiral with its bewitched strings, kinda enchanting, honestly.

We also got a bunch of bouncy, electro powerful tunes like “ATMOSPHERE”, “THE LAST OF US”, “DISTANT POWER” and “FANTASY”

“MY WORLD” is a summerish tune with beautiful vocals and a quite pop bass line, perfect to chill with,while laying on the beach (ideally on the white Isle….just saying) with your favorite cocktail…

“THE OTHER SIDE” is going to haunt your mind with dreamy,angelic vocals.

“FLIGHT 761”and “MY WAY” are serving up some very enjoyable festival beats to make you jump while “STAY AWAKE” leads the way with blissful yet dark synths and an infectious bassline.

“RUN AWAY” Alexander Popov remix closes this masterpiece with this outstanding tune which is going to linger on for a while, stucked in your head.

When all is said and done, I fell in love with Interplay 2016, Alexander Popov never lets us down and I warmly recommend you to give it a listen asap… https://interplay2016.lnk.to/AlexanderPopov you can thank me later 🙂 but take care…it’s highly addictive!!!

A chat with the Trance Queen…Emma Hewitt

Emma Hewitt doesn’t need any introduction, her very recognizable voice and distinctive style, made me fall for her the very first time I heard her singing; after so many big collaborations (Cosmic Gate, Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin..to name a few) and the great success of her album Burn the Sky Down, she is now back with another stunning tune in cooperation with Mark Sixma,called “Restless Hearts”.

I am so excited to share this interview with you guys,she’s not only an amazing trance singer and song writer, not only a beautiful woman, but also a wonderful soul, so kind-hearted and down to earth, and I am feeling really blessed she made the time to support my blog!!

J: Hello Emma,
thank you for supporting my blog with this interview 🙂

E: Hey Jess, it’s my pleasure! 🙂 Thanks for chatting with me 🙂

J: I know you started to sing when you were really young, so would you tell me
how did it all start?

E: It was never really a conscious decision, I just always wanted to sing and
be involved with music in some way. I started singing in bands when I was
still in school. As soon as I finished school my brother and I were saving
to record demos and send them to anyone who would listen. Through this
process, and constant writing and learning, we went in and out of different
record and publishing deals, different managers, many moves to different
countries and a lot of trial and error before we came to where we are now,
in electronic music.

J: What is the difference between being in a band and being a trance singer ?

E: The songs are all still written in the same way, on an acoustic guitar or
piano. The main difference for me is the freedom to travel around the
world either alone or with one other person and perform. With a band there
was always 6 of us and a sound guy, so travel and shows actually became
quite expensive. I must say it was a lot of fun having so many other
people to bounce off though. I really enjoy both worlds to be honest.

J: What inspires you the most when you write your lyrics?

E: Always life. The stories of the people around me. My own emotions.
Songwriting is a very therapeutic exercise and for me allows me to express
emotions and nostalgia that I probably wouldn’t otherwise express.

J: What is the most emotional gigs you remember?

E: Most of them actually become emotional in some way. There is often so much
energy from the crowd and I am always trying to give as much energy as I
can back. I think perhaps for me, the first solo sets I did at some of the
big festivals were kind of a milestone for me, as for a while people told
me only djs could do that.

J: Who would you like to work with in the next future ?

E: Anyone who writes a fantastic song and has a great sound…and of course is
a good person too 🙂

J: in your album Burn the sky down (that I adore) there is also a cover from
Placebo, This Picture, can you tell me why did you choose that tune ? (I am
a huge Placebo fan too)

E: Oh you are? Awesome! I am a huge fan of 90’s rock and industrial music.
I grew up with this darker kind of music, so I wanted to give a nod to that
genre.

J: What are the ups and downs of your job?

E: The ups of course are probably too many to list. I get to do what is
absolutely my passion, for this I count myself very lucky. Seeing places
all over the world that I would never otherwise have the chance to visit is
a wonderful perk, meeting people and making friends from other countries,
the crowds and energy of the shows…
Perhaps the only downside, which I would never complain about still as I am
grateful to do what I do…but I would have to say it would be missing out
on spending time with family and friends. Also perhaps the instability and
not particularly belonging anywhere. But I am happy to continue being a
traveling gypsy as the goods far out way the negatives!!

J: Any new project on the way?

E: Many! I have quite a few new collaborations lined up and I am also looking
at releasing a solo ep or album early next year. I took some time out from
releasing music for a while to gather fresh inspiration. Now I am fully
inspired and writing like crazy! 🙂

J: How did success affected your life ?

E: I guess it is difficult for any of us to really gauge our own success or
see ourselves as successful. For me I am always looking to the next
project or the next thing I want to achieve. I wouldn’t consider myself
successful until I have achieved all I want to. And I think if I ever
achieve all I want to I will become stagnant…there is so much more I want
to do before I would say I have reached success though.

J: You travel a lot, what are the things you always carry with you?

E: Always my kindle…I read a lot on flights. Black mascara is always a
must…without it I look like I have no eyes…if I stand in front of a
white wall you can’t see me. I always have my TC Helicon voice live vocal
effects so that I can create delays and reverbs for my live vocals,
ultimate ears in ear monitors so I can hear myself onstage…My
laptop…some giant shoes so I can pretend I am taller onstage :):)

J: Do you have a lucky charm?
E: Not a lucky charm so much, but I do travel with a few crystals that fit in
my pockets for good vibes and protection.

J: Are you coming back to Italy any soon?

E: I truly hope so! Italy is one of my favorite places in the world to
visit!! I absolutely LOVE the people…and the food!!!! Fingers crossed I
get to visit soon!

Thanks again Emma, really loved you find the time in your extra busy schedule for this lovely chat, and hope to see you again very soon 🙂

Here you can find her latest masterpiece with Mark Sixma “Restless Hearts”
