Voting has already started and is open to everyone. The vote will close on Saturday 15th November with the results announced live at the event. The highlight every year is the star-studded ceremony and full-on party which celebrates the diversity of trance music and culture. Previously the awards have been hosted by the likes of Passion, Godskitchen and Slinky, and this year it’s time for long-running trance institution The Gallery at the world-famous Ministry Of Sound to welcome the most up for it trance crowd of the year on Friday 21st November.
The line-up this year includes Trance Awards stalwart and Gallery regular Judge Jules, who will once again help to present the awards, alongside The Thrillseekers, Lange, Sied Van Riel, Claudia Cazacu and Gavyn Mytchel with some very special surprise live guest appearances.
The UK’s leading dance download store, Trackitdown.net has once again revamped the Trance Awards website to create a fresh vibe in another storming year for the scene. Alongside the voting, the team have enlisted leading key figures from the worlds of production, performance and promotion to tell visitors about how the last 12 months has turned out for them and look ahead to the coming year. Well worth checking out if we say so ourselves and don’t forget to vote for your favourite Gallery resident or guest from the past 12 months!
Judge Jules is no stranger to The Gallery and indeed the Trance Awards having helped host and present the show in previous years. Fresh from the huge Judgement Sunday End of Season party at The Gallery in October the Judge is back in the control seat for tonight’s celebration of all things trance. A long champion of all things new, good and exciting in dance music through his radio shows, endless touring and wide held respect Jules remains as excitable about playing records as the day he started and is a true legend fit for such occasions as tonight. Joining him will be the hugely popular and respected Thrillseekers, better known to his mother as Steve Helstrip; The Thrillseekers remain one of the biggest things in trance having been so instrumental in the early days with hits such as ‘Synaesthesia’ and ‘Dreaming of You’. Still very much at the cutting edge of the scene, new Thrillseekers material inevitably creates a huge buzz with recent hits including ‘The Last Time’ and ‘Waiting here for you’. The Nightmusic compilation series has cemented Steve’s position in the scene and has seen him tour every inch of the globe and remains one of the best compilations money can buy in our humble opinion! Fellow production powerhouse Lange joins the all-star cast of tonight’s party and is another worthy addition remaining a hugely influential figure in the scene. An exponent of some of the most seminal tracks in trance music’s history Lange enjoys the ability to constantly broaden and change his sound with his enormous ability as a producer and label boss. A great and well travelled DJ Lange always delivers the goods and we at The Gallery are looking forward to his first outing at the Ministry of Sound for us in that amazing Box room! Having made his debut for our new breed VACCINE room back in February at The Gallery; Sied van Riel has lived up to the hype and so much more going from strength to strength since then with a plethora of massive tracks and remixes and a DJ diary taking him worldwide. One of the next big things however you look at it, we are sure those who have not yet witnessed this producer extraordinaire will not be disappointed. Another name going from strength to strength is Claudia Cazacu who has seen the last 12 months take off big time for her. With appearances at the likes of Judgement Sunday, Inside Out as well as running a hugely successful imprint in the shape of Couture Records she is at the forefront of the new tech-trance talent and alongside Gallery resident Gavyn Mytchel rounds off the Box’s huge line-up with a bang!
Over in the Bar, Koolwaters drops by to host one of its sessions with headline action from Deepgroove and resident Marc Vedo, and Gallery supremo Tall Paul. Having enjoyed another massive summer in Ibiza hosting their parties at the legendary Eden the Koolwaters brand continues its all out assault on dance music and in the Deepgroove guys they have the perfect ammunition to do the business in the superb surroundings of the Bar at Ministry of Sound. Joined by regular Gallery face and production rising star Graeme Lloyd, Stuart Brooker also gets in on the action to warm things up. The Baby Box welcomes Funk Naughty with Adam Laurie, Phil Robinson, Chris Joy, Danny Wakeling, Oke and Ben Hooper whilst the Lounge welcomes Minimal Love with support from Cozzie, Damion Burbank B2B Rob Holmes, Sooney, Pollo and a live set from Nic Baird.
