Where else can you find a Brazilian-style carnival in Europe in the thick of December and taking place in a former grain silo?!! Yes indeed, in a riotous blaze of colour, clamour and glamour Grotesque’s year-sign-off fiestas its way back into Rotterdam’s Maassilo complex this month.
For their now annual winter-weather-beating ‘Cirque du Trance’ RAM has assembled a 20+ strong DJ contingent for its four area affair. He’s been joined by two of that number to mix up the event takeaway -‘Grotesque 350’ – the album. Two for the price of one, Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Di Stefano were the men getting the call-up and they join the Grotesque ringmaster in mixing up 350’s comp storm. Collectively they’ve delivered a trio of discs, packed to their limits with you the freshest, finest & most exclusive trance available.
From amongst its near 60-track order, you’re in line for masses from the trinity themselves. That includes ‘Youniverse’ – this year’s Grotesque event anthem. Further, there’s audio from a procession of legends (Paul van Dyk, Markus Schulz, Giuseppe Ottaviani to give you an idea). Heritage acts abound too – Tiësto, Hennes & Cold, Scot Project, Joy Kitikonti, to name all featuring. There’s a load more besides, with the genre’s most respected & revered (talking: Mark Sherry, Richard Durand, Simon Patterson, John Askew, PureNRG, Sean Tyas, Ferry Tayle + a host of others) bringing their studio-ware.
‘Grotesque 350’ is on the launch pad, so buckle up! The final word in your trance-year is here!
