European style trance! British Soundsystem!

A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.

European style trance! British Soundsystem!

Postby TogaFlex » 8 years ago

Hi all,

Greetings from London - BM newb here - My name is Chris, and I am, amongst other things, a trance DJ. I used to run my own club night here in the UK and am coming to BM in the Summer on a 40 seater tourbus, with a load of my UK mates and we are intending to build a soundsystem. Think big tunes, big spaces, lamps, flags, fires, a sofa, lasers and lots of cushions, as well as a fully-stocked bar, with, it is intended, our own beer on tap. (!)

In short, we are planning on having a top time and we cannot wait for you guys to come and see us, and have a top time with us as well.

I'll be bringing my tunes with me obviously, but I'd love to come play a guest slot at someone else's soundsystem!

Likewise, we'll be inviting guest DJs and performers to come and chuck down at ours.

So - does anyone have an interest in giving me a couple of hours on their decks as a guest?

I play melodic, immersing, non-cheesy trance such as that propagated by guys like Markus Schultz, Thomas Datt, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Orjan, John Askew, Dogzilla and Ferry Corsten.

You can find a link to some of our mixes online: - check out "Free" and "Peak" - top trance!

You'll see some house mixes on there too - not mine but my mate Don's, who is coming as well!

August cannot come soon enough!

COME ON!!!! :D

Hey TogaFlex,

Welcome to eplaya! Sounds like a great concept. Sorry I can't help; but I'll bump up the thread for you.

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Played both tracks today sitting here doing some work. Very little work actually.

I liked them both and will keep an ear open for you in 09.

Love to join you guys for a guest spot sometime. We're bringing some equipment but no sound. We have some new music coming out in a couple weeks too.

Take a listen

Puhlease bring it on. I often found a surprising lack of trance my last few visits to the playa. I love Bassnectar as much as the next person (maybe more!) but I would really love to hear some great trance once in a while. I think this is more a reflection of the fading trance culture in North America.

I often thought this was kind of sad because the playa is nothing if not epic and emotional. I say go for it.
