Meanwhile, others still are returning to trance's own first principles and turning it super hypnotic and cosmic again, with artists like Ciel herself, Fantastic Twins and K-X-P making some of this year's most glorious records from its core components. Trance's roots go back a long way.
It's true: from the first academic electronic composers through the hippie tone-wrangling of The Silver Apples and Giorgio Moroder 's synth-disco experiments, as soon as people got their hands on the means to create a hypnotic pulse, they grabbed that opportunity with both hands. Even before techno was invented, hippies were dancing on the beaches of Goa to relentless electronic and industrial beats stretched out for days with the express purpose of mystical trance induction.
But it was in the early '90s in Europe, especially in Frankfurt, that the genre itself was actually born. It was always about dancing. Those early '90s days were full of wildness, strangeness and hedonism, with hippies and ravers embracing an anything-goes sense to the music. It also went global almost instantly. Or it would be in Canada or Indonesia or even Japan. It was a really free and crazy scene that to me felt more like a lifestyle and at that time I thought house was just really cheesy and had run out of ideas. Jane Fitz. For those who embraced it, like Corsten, it proved not just popular but durable.
But ultimately I returned to the good old trance recipe of back in the day, because that's what works best for this sound! And crucially, that mainstream trance sound was infectious. Hip-hop, always magpie in nature, grabbed its big riffs — listen to some of Timbaland 's mids beats, most notably on Justin Timberlake 's Your Love and it is unmistakably there in the mix. THE name Jon O'Bir has been splashed across the industry since he was catapulted to the front line in , after winning a prestigious competition run by Passion and M8 magazine.
Eight years on, Jon continues to go from strength to strength, gaining endless respect, fans and accolades. Easter consisted of many chocolate eggs being eaten and it was nice to have a little break, although I did squeeze a gig in London in on the Sunday, which is always enjoyable!
James Algate, the Godskitchen promoter at the time, was playing a set in the back room and caught my set and was impressed. I sent promo CDs out to clubs after my competition win and the only one to reply was the Godskitchen, the last club I thought would contact me on the list!
They offered me a residency and it snowballed from there.
To say I was over the moon was a massive understatement. I still have some nice memories of it, though, and some pictures somewhere that I'll have to dig out. Hopefully I'll get to check out some of the Island again while I'm over. I'm always hearing different bits of tracks that inspire me to produce something right there, right then. I've been inspired by a lot of talented musicians, there's a lot out there! The scene is constantly changing and with it the music as well.
The tempo of the quality tracks seems to have slowed and have introduced more of a groove. Expect to hear a nice set built up, uplifting and still with plenty of energy thrown in. It's always been a dream to play there and it turned out even better than it was in my dreams!
How does your production work complement your DJ sets? Do you prefer one to the other? To see people with smiles on their faces and dancing away when I play, words can not describe, it's a great feeling.
But not far behind that feeling is the one when you come across a killer riff and you know a track is taking shape that you're gonna love. So this year is the year of production, production, production. Mixed in are a lot of gigs I'm looking forward to as well of course, but this year it's time to spread the O'Bir name further. You have always got to keep your foot down in this industry, someone is always waiting to take your place, everyone's a DJ! More productions and I'd like to do another album of course, that was a great experience.
