Kyo KL along with Plural Asia bring you a night of unadulterated trance plea- sure featuring legendary DJ, producer, record label owner, scene pioneer and all round good bloke...SOLARSTONE!
There are not many corners of the world or super clubs nor are there any electronic music publications that have not had an unforgettable blast of the Solarstone experience. Forget the countless nominations, awards and plau- dits he has been bestowed by media, industry professional and fans. Lets not even talk about the genre defining and record breaking Pure Trance compilation series beloved around the planet. We know and love Richard Mowatt aka Solarstone because he plain and simply rocks the dancefloor whether its a superclub in London, a beach party in Ibiza, a massive festival in the heart of Brazil or a throbbing bush party in Australia!
Solarstone behind a pair of CDJs is something that every electronic dance music lover, planet-wide, should witness at least once in their clubbing careers.
Richard brings together a clear love of melody with an intrinsic, perceptive aptitude for floor-quaking performances.
His massive sold out shows everywhere is a testament to his global fanbase leaving an indelible mark after every set.
Almost 20 years ago, his seminal anthem Seven Cities announced the true arrival of a trance powerhouse. The track - one of, if not the first Balearic Trance anthems - has been re-released 3 times and has sold in excess of 1⁄2 million copies. Remixed in 2002 by Armin van Buuren, its an instantly recog- nizable sunset-sound legacy that can still be heard in tracks today. His dominance and relevance in the scene is clear today as it was back then with his latest Pure Trance Volume 6 and Pure Trance
Volume 5 mixes win-ning top plaudits in the Trance Podium Awards of the last two years. Very few DJs and producers can lay claim to always being ahead of the curve constantly reviving and redefining this powerhouse genre as Solarstone does. This will be a night to remember as he takes charge of the immense Void Sound System speakers of Kyo to bring you anthem after anthem in a way only he can.
Classic trance heads will definitely recall producer Solarstone’s Seven Cities from way back in 1999, among the first of the Balearic trance anthems, which has been re-released three times and now sold in excess of half a million copies. Remixed by Armin van Buuren amongst others, its instantly recogniz- able sunset/sunrise-sound legacy is still heard in tracks today.
