A New Era of Trance

Andrei Rata, better known as Andrew Rayel, is being hailed as the modern day mozart of tance.

Since the young age of 13 he has been developing his strong musical skills and studying orchestral music. It didn’t take long for the passionate music lover to translate his ideas into sounds. He created a truly unique sonic signature – one of piano power, harmonic balance, and euphoric tales. 

“Trance was the perfect solution, as it is a combination of melody, harmony and energy, elements that I prefer the most”, says Andrew Rayel.

His tracks found a solid home on the A State of Trance and Armind labels, both part of the Armada Music family. With such impressive originals, it didn’t take long until the Rayel sound became hot property for remixes. And so, Andrew was lucky enough to take on remix duties for tracks by Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Tiësto, W&W, Bobina, Tenishia, and many more. Earning the support of the DJ elite, Rayel’s name soon spread all across the globe, from underground clubs to mainstream festivals.

Although his career is still very young, Andrew has already DJed the world’s most legendary clubs and massive festivals. From Kazantip, Global Gathering, Trancefusion, Ball En Blanc, Trancemission and Ministry of Sound to multiple A State of Trance 600 events, the A State of Trance Ibiza Nights at Privilege and the world-famous Monday Bar Cruise. As a result of his hard work and dedication, fans voted him #28 in the DJ Mag Top 100 of 2013, as the highest climber. Expectations for 2014’s poll are even higher.

“I believe music is a universal language that unites people with nothing but love. I intend to make sure that my tracks are all about emotions and happiness. That’s what’s driving music, making the world a better place”, says Andrew Rayel.

At the Solid office we are so excited to welcome Andrew Rayel to the #SOLIDNYE2015 Lineup. This Trance legend will be playing an incredible set that is sure to leave you awe inspired and uplifted like never before.
