Pure/Silver Lining

Pure Trance is a feeling, a passion which exists outside of contemporary musical fads and fashions. It is the bringing together of millions of fans for whom this music is a way of life." - Solarstone

From scene founding father to ringleader and flag-bearer of the Pure Trance movement, Solarstone (producer, composer & DJ Richard Mowatt) enduring influence stretches back almost as far as the genre itself.

Releases like Solarcoaster, The Calling and Seven Cities are all benchmark classics of its pre-millennial period. The latter track  among the first of the Balearic trance anthems - has been re-released 3 times, and now sold in excess of  million copies. Remixed by Armin van Buuren amongst others, its instantly recognizable sunset/sunrise-sound legacy is still heard in tracks today. With the albums Anthology One RainStarsEternal, Touchstone, Pure and most recently the cryptically titled . - - - - , hes also released a quintet of critically revered longplayers.

Solarstone has long brought his sound to some of the most famous clubs, arenas and festivals on the planet. In Europe, those have come to include Tomorrowland, Cream Ibiza, A State Of Trance & Global Gathering, whilst further afield hes rocked TomorrowWorld, Stereosonic, FSOE and numerous others.

Having championed trances true nature from his very first release, the last 5 years have seen Solarstone push its origin sound - almost singlehandedly - back to the top of the genres agenda. Through his gospel of #PureTrance - modernizing the genres heart, whilst ring-fencing its soul - he caught the disposition of the scene with zeitgeist timing. Within its first year, Solarstones ideology of Pure Trance had developed into a bona fide musical movement. Its one which has been captured by a major a mix-compilation series, worldwide Pure Trance club and festival shows, the Pure Trance and Pure Progressive record labels & its weekly radio show.

Pure Progressive/Silver Lining

Brenden LaBonte a.k.a. Forerunners has released a steady stream of immersive and unique tracks over the past 8 years, with remixes and originals on various Solarstone labels, Sudbeat, Suffused, Saturate Audio, Silk Music, Perfecto, and others. Something of an enigma as an artist, this Arizona based producer is definitely in the quality over quantity camp. Forerunners music is about the slow build, the journey, where filters ebb and flow, layers creep to the front then withdraw, where the percussion is hypnotic and the synths repetitive, and the melody draws the listener in with its subtlety, rather than a crass fanfare. Its either early night material for trance rooms, or peak time material for intelligent progressive floors  spun by DJs who know how to work a room. This is what progressive music is all about.

Not only a top DJ, MarQ is responsible for Seattle's premier trance club The Underground & the founder of Seattle Trance Alliance & its two offshoot brands, Phoenix Trance Alliance and the new North American Trance Alliance.
