Hello again everyone!
Good news: the submissions continue to look great! In fact There's one in particular that we'd like to share with you that really nails what this project is all about. It's from one of our Argentinian friends who's written about their sublime experience at "A State Of Trance". We've trimmed their piece down here a bit so we can get straight to the really good parts, the ones that show just what kind of stories we're looking for. We hope you enjoy it.
"I’ve been raving in Argentina since 2012. My first love was Dubstep and I saw a few shows of it, ‘till one of my best friends introduced me to Trance music. I used to love Dubstep, because I would lose my mind with violent basslines and higher BPMs, but when I discovered Trance, I realized that there was much more. I’m not saying that Trance is better than Dubstep, Techno, Hardcore or other genres—in fact, I like almost every single style of electronic music—but with Trance I have a particular relation, because I feel something more with it. In Trance music I find deep feelings, adrenaline, beautiful lyrics like a sunset in a nice place, and it’s always changing. It’s very difficult to get bored with a set of pure Trance, ‘cause you have a moment for every feeling. And if you only wanna dance and jump ‘till the sun rises, trust me, you will."
"In 2014 we celebrated “A State Of Trance”, Episode 650 in Argentina, and the lineup was integrated by: Ruben De Ronde, Chris Schweizer, Heatbeat, Orjan Nilsen, Dash Berlin and Armin Van Buuren. When the day came, all sets were fantastic. Then the final set had come: the organization had added to the lineup a local DJ, Tomas Heredia. He stood up in front of thousands of people waiting for more Trance, and opened his set with Will Atkinson - Watch Out, and everybody went mad."
"Then, something unimaginable happened: Armin Van Buuren appeared beside him and they started a B2B set. The crowd went crazy, and me and my friend started walk to the front stage because we could not believe what we were seeing. When we came to the front, we [watched as] one by one, all the DJ's re-appeared on the stage and they started to play all together. I was stunned...a B7B set happening right in front of my eyes!! I remember every minute from that set. They played a lot of classic old school Trance like Sandstorm from Darude, Apache and other anthems. That night I experienced a feeling like none other before. While dancing and jumping, I couldn’t stop looking all around, and all that I saw was a big (BIG) family having a spectacular moment, united by music. Wherever you put your eyes, a huge smile appeared. Even the DJs were having fun! They were dancing and laughing while playing and it increased the collective hype."
"Then I cried. I don’t really know why, maybe I cried for the uplifting melody that Tomas Heredia was playing, or maybe I cried because I could not believe I was living and dancing something like that. The fact was that my eyes couldn’t hold any more tears, and that drove me to dance with even more emotion and passion. It was one of my favorite gigs ever, and I will remember it forever."
