For those DJs and fans who like the harder sides of trance, please hold on tight as a new pleasure ride launches in late 2019.
US based California born hard trance pioneer and Dreamstate resident Ganesh has teamed up with one of Northern Ireland’s exciting new names Pete Delete to quench their thirst for producing and pushing their kind of harder edged sounds into the trance market.
What sounds can you expect on HQ ?
HQ is a new mega base for the music Ganesh and Pete Delete are calling HARDER TRANCE! A sound within a sound that fuses uplifting trance, tech trance and hard trance. Harder Trance is something that exists between trance and hard trance, not too violent in the bass and delivery, keeping those groovy feels alive, hard trance with soul if you will…Think energetic bass full of groove, tough percussion and face melting acid with mind altering breakdowns and intense melodies that drop in full power!
First and foremost expect a sound that has gone totally underground over the last decade, the more UK sound with dirty grooves, ripping acid, jackin percs and blistering energetic melodies. The much loved classic European hard trance sound will feature from time to time and you can also expect some reversed bass future hard trance and hard tech trance bombs!
What artists can you expect on HQ?
We won’t give that away just yet but get ready for some next level originals, collaborations, remixes and classic reworks that are being skilfully produced in studios across the world with artists from USA, UK, South America and Europe already confirmed. We are excited to be working with a range of current and future talent and with some iconic names even returning to the hard trance sound the nostalgia factor will be in full effect. Promo will go to a very select list of DJs and music media who currently support the tougher end of trance while releases will be available in all the usual download and streaming stores.
Caps – Get involved on our socials and keep an eye out for the promo and release date of HQ 001 which we guarantee will rock your world!
Ganesh was one of the Los Angeles dance scene’s early innovators. His unique sound and style has made him stand out from the crowded ranks of DJs, plus his mindset and motivation continues to serve him in his career that spans now over two decades. Ganesh has made himself one of the most sought-after Trance artists earning a him the title of “Dreamstate resident” and multiple appearances at EDC Vegas, as well as global EDC events. 2019 saw his production debut, “Emergent”, released by FSOE Clandestine and broke into Beatport’s top 50 trance releases. Starting his professional DJing career in 1995 Ganesh took DIY to heart and in ’97, started the Santa Barbara club night “Digital” which was dedicated to the harder side of dance.
Ganesh has played across the globe, displaying his signature style of trance to large capacity crowds alongside world-class talent including Scot Project, Mark Sherry, Cosmic Gate, Astrix, John OO Fleming, Ferry Corsten, Baby Doc, and more. He’s held residencies at several L.A. clubs. Ganesh has been a source of inspiration to the new ranks of up-and-coming DJ while as a genre buyer/vinyl pusher for the infamous “Vinyl Fetish” in Los Angeles. He brought a new sound to the L.A. dance scene with a style that blended heavy pulsating bass lines, intense rhythm, and razor-sharp synths.
Pete Delete who’s first love was producing (early aliases included Pete The System, Renegade System, Crowd Control, The Boy Who Cried Wolf) has been a trance fanatic since the late 1990s. He became a bit of a face about the Northern Ireland club scene, did some event promoting work (MELTDOWN @ Bar 15)and as a natural talent spotter found his way into in to artist management, bookings and A&R work, running his own agencies Embrace and PM:AM for 5 years. During these years Pete was discovering, developing and pushing names such as Maarten De Jong, Allen & Envy, Tempo Giusto, Linnea Schossow, A.R.D.I, Tigran Oganezov (Mixmag Future Hero), Billy Gillies, Kinetica, Renegade System, Sarah Lynn and many more. He also helped Signum return to trance and had a young Ben Nicky and Ciaran McAuley (Walsh & McAuley) on his first roster. Fast forward to 2018 and Pete started to produce music again, getting his first track under his new Pete Delete alias signed to Armada and Reaching Altitude with Australian megastar MaRLo doing his own special edit due for release in summer 2019. For his second release he has teamed up with D10 to debut on RAM’s Nocturnal Animals on Black Hole Recordings which is forthcoming.
