World renowned DJ/Producer Andrew Rayel returns to Central Texas to bring Austin his euphoric tunes of trance. This 22 year old Moldavan started his journey as a melodic genius at the young age of 13. With tracks like ‘550 Sentra,’ ‘How Do I Know’ ft. Jan, ‘EIFORYA,’ ‘Aeon of Revenge’, ‘Zeus,’ and ‘Musa’ Rayel successfully jumped from #77 (2012) to #24 (2014) in the DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs in a very short period of time. After just releasing his first album Find Your Harmony 2015 last year in late May, it is undeniable that Andrew Rayel earned his spot as a safe keeper of trance in the next generation of producers.
Trained in the school of classical music, Andrew Rayel skillfully incorporates the piano instrument with electronic dance music. This earned him the nick name “modern day Mozart” amongst others. Going through music school, Andrew Rayel has always preferred to create his own unique melodies, and upon the discovery of recording softwares, released his first track under a label in 2009. Legendary Armin van Buuren himself played it as the “Future Favorite” and Tune of the Week” on his A State of Trance radio show, and since then has earned our young Rayel the support of many more DJ elites in the industry. As a prominent member of the massive Armada label, Andrew Rayel’s fairly young career has really taken off, finding himself headlining at different music festivals and clubs around the world.
Within the last year, Andrew Rayel has visited Texas in two separate occasions, Something Wicked in Houston and Lights All Night in Dallas. But we can’t leave the self-proclaimed “Live Music Capital” out of the loop now can we? Catch Andrew Rayel at Vulcan Gas Company on February 26. Once again, NightCulture and Disco Donnie refuse to disappoint fans and bring us the biggest names to the dance floor. It’s not very often that Austin gets to see a trance artist, but when we do, it’s the “Prince of Trance.”
