Brian Flinn has made a name for himself in Trance with his uplifting breakdowns, complex drops, and hard-hitting kicks. Coming from Kansas City he started his journey into music at a very young age as he became captivated by the beauty and uniqueness of electronic music. Eventually, his journey led him to the path of music production where he has seen success in over 60 original tracks and remixes.
Over the past decade, Flinn has been producing and releasing tracks on acclaimed labels like Black Hole Recordings, Tytanium Recordings, Night Vision, Aria Knights, and more.

While Trance is his passion, Flinn's unique and diverse talent isn't limited to just one genre, and he's successfully demonstrated that by having produced tracks in both Drum and Bass and Techno as well. In 2018, Flinn launched his own imprint, From The Ashes, with the vision of becoming home to experimental, unique tracks that may not fit on a label with a specific sound or genre.
Having traveled across North America playing festivals and events, Flinn has shared the stage with notable artists like Paul Van Dyk, Sean Tyas, Above & Beyond, and more.

Climbing through the ranks of California’s up-and-coming DJs, Carlos Arteaga has been making his presence known in the trance community in a swift span of time. With almost a decade of experience and counting, Arteaga’s love of DJing transformed the young adult’s life while continuing to promote the trance movement forward in the US.
It was in 2008 where he discovered the fast, hard-hitting styles of dance music, where he pursued this captivating sound from the illustrious main room, to the depths of the distinct underground. In 2014 he started breaking into the nightlife circuit and playing in California’s established dance clubs.
Aside from performing on stage, in 2015, he attended Point Blank’s academy of music production, where he was taught about the art of music production. Arteaga also sought out guidance from AM Studios, taught by Allan Morrow, and SKapade Studios, led by tech trance producers Stephen Kirkwood and 2nd Phase. In his short time producing, Arteaga has learned valuable production knowledge to further push his musical career forward.
With his love of driving tech and energetic trance, combined with his mixing style and FX chaining, Arteaga delivers an unheard of dance floor experience. Arteaga has also performed live on local radio broadcasts, and shared the stage with some of trance’s top heavyweights including John O’Callaghan, Bryan Kearney, Sean Tyas, Arctic Moon, and Vini Vic.
Ganesh is one the Los Angeles dance scene’s early innovators. His unique sound and style has made him stand out from the crowded ranks of L.A. 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 as he took on the title of "Dreamstate resident", gracing the stage of Insomniac's crown jewel -- EDC Vegas.
Starting his DJing career in 1995 in Santa Barbara, CA, like most DJs, Ganesh began by playing small house parties, clubs, and occasional one-off shows. Willing to do anything to get a gig, he would even offer his own turntables and mixer for the second room. Not satisfied with playing just for other people, Ganesh took DIY to heart and in '97, started the Santa Barbara club night "Digital” which was dedicated to the harder side of dance. Booking DJs he wanted to showcase while honing his own skills and style, thus began his longtime friendship with his mentor and L.A. legend: Thee-o..
Ganesh has played across the country, displaying his matchless style of trance to large capacity crowds alongside world-class talent including Paul Van Dyk, Cosmic Gate, Astrix, John OO Fleming, Ferry Corsten, BK, Nick Sentience, Baby Doc, and more. He's held residencies with the notorious productions of R.O.A.M., Warm & Fuzzy, and TeknoKlub parties as well as club "Red" which was voted "best after-hours" by Los Angeles’ "New Times".
Wanting to support the scene's producers and labels, Ganesh took up writing about the music he loved and held the Genre Editor position for the monthly music magazine "Freebass". He has published a monthly column on the state of UK Hard House/NRG in the late 90's and early 2000's that featured reports and news from as far off as Australia and reviews of the newest, most innovative tracks. Ganesh has also conducted multiple interviews anda label profiles on the global scene's elite.
Ganesh has been a source of inspiration to the new ranks of up-and-coming DJs. Working as a genre buyer/vinyl pusher for the best record store in LA, the infamous "Vinyl Fetish", Ganesh began devoting entire walls to Hard Trance, NRG, and UK Hard House at time when shops had hardly heard the style. 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. His current sound has evolved but the feeling is as driving, energetic, and memorable as before.
In just a few years Jase Thirlwall has made a firm footprint on the global trance scene, after exploding onto dance floors with his diverse and energetic production sounds that have seen him become a favourite for leading labels like Armada, Kearnage, Outburst and Mental Asylum. His big breakthrough moment came in 2013 when his ‘Freaked’ single stormed charts and playlists, with most notable support coming from Armin van Buuren who featured it on his legendary ‘Universal Religion’ compilation. Further big tracks in the following years included ‘Thunderflash’, ‘Airborne’, ‘Sicko’, ’Standby’ and ‘Glow’, each garnering far reaching radio and playlist support for from a who’s who list of the trance world’s finest tastemakers.
Jase started off 2016 with an official remix of Armin van Buuren 'Strong Ones' on Armada, followed by underground smash hit 'Tranceformer' [Outburst] and his awesome uplifting vocal track 'I'll Still Have You’ [WAO138?!] with the angelic vocals of Victoria Shersick. Arguably his finest moment of 2016 came from his monstrous collaboration with Will Atkinson ‘Squelcher’ [Kearnage] - which shot up the Beatport Top 100 Trance charts to take the #2 position, as well as receiving a great deal of support from Bryan Kearney, John O’Callaghan, Snjeider, Simon Patterson and more, including plenty of radio support on BBC Radio 1.
As a performer Jase doesn't hold back; fans have come to expect unrelenting energy, emotion and the occasional surprise from him behind the decks. His versatility and broad range of underground sounds enables him to deliver cooler tech edged sets through to driving uplifting trance for peak time or end of night euphoria. To date he’s performed alongside A list DJs including Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Mauro Picotto and Eddie Halliwell.
Jase has played leading UK festivals and events such as Coloursfest, EH1, Trance Sanctuary and Goodgreef Trance Cruise Weekender as well as a packed calendar of club appearances. Internationally, Jase has torn up the dance floors of Ibiza, Ireland, Netherlands, Italy and Poland as well as taking on tours of Asia, Australia and South America. Twice now Jase has placed in the Trancepodium Top 100 DJ’s at 93 and 86 and he shows no sign of stopping!
Neil Bamford has been a name featured in UK trance culture for a decade. Having been involved with some of the most recognisable UK brands and with his productions supported by the likes of Armin van Buuren, Aly & Fila, Sean Tyas and the other artists that make up the senior fraternity of trance. After a few years hiatus from producing, Neil returns in fine fashion with his third solo effort due for release this summer (18’)…
Neil’s love for music has been ever present since before his age met double digits, and turned his attention to trance music around the age of 16. Although he tries to champion artists starting out on their journey, he has studied the genre’s history and believes it’s in a much better place now then it ever has been. His first initial releases were together with Med (Chris Medlock) on labels such as Abora (‘One’), Infrasonic (‘Stolen’ and ‘Last Stand’) and Perceptive (‘Light Up’) of which were supported on ASOT several times. With this success in their productions, Neil and Med went on to be heavily involved in UK super brand Digital Society landing them a residency with the brand. After a few years of gigging up and down the country, Neil and Med went their separate ways with Neil’s hunger still burning bright.
Whilst keeping his ear low to the ground, Neil locked himself away and learnt his trade with the sole purpose of a return to the trance scene. Now is his time. With the confidence boost he needed signing debut releases on ‘Sub:Mission’ and ‘Estrella Recordings’, Neil landed his third release ‘They Are There’ which has been included on the long awaiting In Search of Sunrise 14. His return to the main stage has been supported by Neil’s residency and co-promotion for the most talked about up and coming trance night in the UK, Equinox.
Being able to play any time of the night, dance floor knowledge and creativity will never be a problem for Neil who has emersed himself in music culture from such a young age. Having being absolved in trance and having worked hard to find his feet through his own efforts, Neil is ready to take his place alongside his heroes and create his own legacy.
Krzysztof Pretkiewicz aka Nitrous Oxide is one of the leading figures of the Polish and European trance scene. He was Anjunabeats’ first Polish DJ and each of his releases has, without fail, gained massive attention.
He first encountered electronic music in the 90s, and became fascinated by the artistic creativity of musicians such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Mike Oldfield and Depeche Mode, as well as film music created by the likes of Thomas Newman and Hans Zimmer. After beginning his experimentation with sound at the age of 13, Krzysztof’s passion and ability to create tunes that smash dancefloors has continually developed.
Influenced by genres such as house, minimal, speed garage and hard dance, Nitrous Oxide’s unique releases, such as his Anjunabeats debut ‘North Pole/Frozen Dreams’ have gained support from Above and Beyond, Armin – you name it.
His DJing career has taken him to every corner of the world and he is no stranger to festivals and main rooms – the bigger the better for a sound as big as his.
It is easy to see why Ruud Kretzers, aka Radion6, is so in tune with the world-famous DJ and producer Armin van Buuren and is on his own Armada Music label (voted ‘Best Global Record Label’ five years in a row).
Armin is described as "a man driven by an unbridled and relentless passion for music.... one of the world’s most popular DJs, he has always remained a down-to-earth guy." Radion6 shares that passion and down-to-earth attitude, and like Armin, he is clocking up a track record of achievements that mean he has to be noticed. Radion6 is already a world-leading, crowd-pleasing, unmissable Dutch Trance DJ and Producer, ever since the overnight success from the moment his breakthrough release “The Serengeti”, took off.
Gripped by a love of music from his earliest days, and by then a respected producer, Radion6 made his DJ debut in 2011, when he was also invited to be part of Sander Van Doorn’s tour 'Eleve11' in Romania. Bigger and bigger stages followed, with 2017 seeing Radion6 perform an awesome set at ASOT800 Utrecht in February, playing the Road To 1000 stage alongside other trance and progressive heavyweights like Omnia and Genix. This event, combined with leading shows such as Truth in Johannesburg and the Trance Gate Festival in Milan, plus his return to ASOT 850 in February 2018, shows that Radion6 has arrived as a top Trance attraction. Radion6's globertrotting has also taken him to audiences in London, Oslo, and other locations where lovers of Trance come together.
Well-known for his creativity, quality originals, inspired remixes and imaginative production styles, Radion6 has a powerful track record of outstanding releases on labels including A State Of Trance, Armind, Armada Captivating, Flashover and High Contrast. Highlights of Radion6's productions include the tracks 'Livin The Dream', 'Hope', 'Beautiful Nothing' and 'Eclipse'. Radion6's 'Shockwave' and 'Stuck In Rio' have been played in the biggest clubs and festivals around the world. Whether his music is played live, on stage or on radio shows, it excites and energizes listeners, culminating in what can only be described as a blissful, euphoric experience.
Following guest appearances on Digitally Imported, Afterhours.FM, TranceBase.Fm, and Bobina’s – Russia Goes Clubbing, Radion6 launched his own Radio Show 'Mind Sensation' [insert link] on Digitally Imported, which airs on the second Friday of each month. Mind Sensation can also be heard on Diesel.FM, JR.FM, 1 Mix and Beat 2 Dance Radio.
Radion6 says, "My music excites people and their reaction to it excites me. When people connect with my music it is so special, and to see endless vistas of fans at my live appearances totally blown away is so fantastic." He is firmly established at the beating heart of the Trance scene, and there is more to come - Radion6 has hardly started....
At the age of 25, Sam Jones is already one of the most in-demand new talents in Trance, with releases on Kearnage Recordings, Damaged Records, Mental Asylum, Black Hole, Armada and more. Sam has also seen many plays on Armin van Buuren’s 'A State Of Trance’ radio show, and support from big names like Ferry Corsten, Aly&Fila, John O’Callaghan, Simon Patterson, Eddie Halliwell, Jordan Suckley, Bryan Kearney, Sneijder and many more.
But if you thought that Sam was only good for production then you would be mistaken. Before producing tracks his forte into Trance began with the technical side of DJing. Always enjoying 3 deck mixing, cutting, live editing, scratching and quick mixing, at 17 Sam was picked up by none other than the legendary Inside Out at The Arches by Scottish hero Simon Foy. This gave Sam a big head start on learning how to work a crowd in one of the best clubs in the U.K.
Sam has played in Sweden, Australia and Argentina, as well as seen Ireland + UK for major club brands Goodgreef&Colours for their EH1 festival in Edinburgh. Most recently in 2017 played Luminosity Beach Festival in Holland. Sam saw his United States club debut in California right after his annoucement for Dreamstate SoCal in November.

Transcendent is defined as “Beyond or above the range of normal or merely physical human experience”.
There’s not a better way to describe Transcendent, aka Krystal Ramirez, the DJ / producer from Southern California. Having discovered a love for music at a very young age, her journey began at the age of 7. Learning a wide variety of instruments as she grew older, Krystal mastered multiple instruments - piano, saxophone, flute, and guitar.
As a teen in the early 2000s, Krystal fell in love with the rave scene – this would be where her love for Trance music was born. She wanted to be the one controlling the crowd, often imagining herself behind the decks. The way DJs would tell a story was amazing to her, like they were reading a beautiful love story but through music. She too wanted to tell a story and leave a mark on the world.
Now in her 16th year as a DJ with a deep background in Trance music, the past 5 years Krystal has fallen in love with the Psychedelic side of Trance music, putting her unique twist on the genre while keeping a heavy yet Progressive sound. This sound has opened doors to countless club gigs and the biggest festivals in California, such as 420 Fest and Dreamstate.
As a producer, she has set out a goal to create something new with a twist of Psy & Goa Trance, such as her latest release “Pareidolia”. With live mashups to sampling, Krystal keeps you intrigued throughout her explosive performances with a unique ear for blending tracks.
