Hard Trance Europe
Space Raven & Nick The Kid
Release date: April 6th.
Hard Trance Europe, a fresh and vibrant concept straight out of London that has been gaining huge momentum since its inception in 2017, boldly-garnering quality artists and music from the tougher end of the Trance music spectrum. With an ever-growing fan base through their UK events and weekly releases, HTE is now more a diverse collective and a group voice, rather than just another label serving a specific figurehead. As a result, the quality of output has been absolutely on fire, with interest from artists now at fever pitch to get their own music onto HTE and become a part of the revolution.
Raising the bar for 2018, Hard Trance Europe Volume One drops like a New Zealand plate movement, encompassing 27 harder-edged and serotonin inducing weapons carefully selected by seasoned curators Space Raven and Nick The Kid. With key HTE highlights such as HP Source’s Beatport chart-smashing ‘What U Think?!’ S.H.O.K.K’s uber-nostalgic ‘Da Capo’, The DJ Mag praised ‘Ascension’ from Lab4 and exclusive unreleased earthquakes such as; Wavetraxx’s 2018 remix of ‘Dreams’ and what we believe to be the biggest vocal Hard Trance release of the last decade, Andrea Montorsi’s ‘2Night’, this double CD album will captivate fans of harder-trance music from the off, effortlessly engaging those that like their euphoria a little bit rougher around the edges.
Not content with just exhibiting the very best of HTE, the doors are fully blown open across both discs with a myriad of bangin’ artillery also present from the likes of Alex Di Stefano, Sean Tyas, Nicholson, Mark Sherry, Scot Project and more, making this a very authentic representation of the harder sounds that Europe has to offer.
Hard Trance Europe ‘’ Break the rules more often and you’ll gain a huge advantage over those too afraid to risk it. ‘’
It's been well over a decade since Space Raven hit the scene by storm. After countless tracks and remixes released on some of the most prestigious labels in the industry, the French production power-house continues to output some of the most influential Trance music to date. His latest smash singles such as "Samantha”, “Konstantine”, or "Told In a Whisper" (vs. Wavetraxx on Hard Trance Europe Records) are of course no exception, with Space Raven currently being one of the most in demand remixers and producers out there.
More than just a producer, Nicolas Perrottey is a seasoned DJ, having had the opportunity to tour all over the world in his younger years and ever since. "The Raven" has graced the stages at enviable events and clubs such as; Lake Parade (Geneva, Switzerland), MAD (Lausanne, Switzerland), Synergy (Zurich, Switzerland), Pacha (London, UK), Le Spinx (Charmes, France), and many more besides. By mixing the very first Hard Trance Europe compilation, Space Raven takes us direct into his world. A world made of fresh and inimitable uplifting Hard Trance, all of it perfectly crafted and blended together by a man clearly inspired more than ever by this unique style of art. A sensational 60 minutes of driving and energetic euphoria and a perfect kick-start for our compilation series!
