Tatsumi Suzuki


Tatsumi Suzuki is born 1980 in Stockholm, Sweden. He is half japanese and half finnish. He started to play as a dj in the late 90′s. It all began with trance music, but in time the genres became wider. House and Techno started to take more place in his life. It became natural to implement it to his sets. Tatsumi is an artist with passion for progressive, tech­-house, electro and trance. The large selection of different styles makes him more or less a solid choice for events of wider range. Tatsumi has made own productions together with Millaway and is the host of a podcast called Podgressive since 2010. He has also hosted parties with Kollektivet Sthlm. The music has been a huge part of his life and to see all the people go nut’s to his set’s makes it all worth the effort!

Manuel le Saux

Living in Rome, and championing the sound of full-on euphoric trance across Europe, Manuel has become known for uplifting peaktime trance, and his vast list of productions and remixes speak for itself. Known by his fans to play trance that no other DJs are playing has given Manuel a recognizable identity of his own.

With releases on Recoverwold, Discover, A State Of Trance, Extrema Global Music, Enhanced , and Digital Society Recordings, it’s evident that Le Saux’s Extrema radioshow on afterhours.fm is one of the most listened to trance shows online.
With over 1,000 radioshows already aired, it’s no wonder he is continually booked to play Europe’s big trance events, Quest 4 Trance, Luminosity, Tomorrowland, Entrance Festival, Technoclub and Gatecrasher to name but a few.

Further afield, Manny has graced the crowds of USA, Australia, Belgium, Germany, Norway, Sweden, UK, Ireland, Poland, the Cech. Republic, Spain, Turkey, Finland, Switzerland, Slovenia, Mexico and Argentina… the legacy of a great talent.

Underground Anthems 2 on Recoverwolrd was Mixmag’s ‘compilation of the month’ in June 2009, and with an excellent mix of top-shelf trance, quite rightly so.

2013 he released his album “First Light” on Discover which was a great succes and he opened his own label “EXTREMA” from his famous radioshow.

Adrenaline Dept.

Back in Norway 2005, the 2 DJs Thomas and Fredrik met for the first time and started a collaboration later known to become the project "Adrenaline Dept." who firmly kept top positions with both vinyl and digital singles and compilation-releases on labels like Ministry of Sound, Tidy, Masif, Tunnel Trance Force, Riot, Impact, Deprivation and Oblivion in the hardtrance charts between 2006 and 2010.

They DJ'ed for promotions like Riot and Frantic at London superclubs like Ministry of Sound and The Fridge, and has shared posters with names such as Tidy Boys, BK, Sean TyasNick Sentience, Amber D, Lisa Pin Up Official, and Ian Betts to name a few.

In 2010 they left the hardtrance scene to pursue other ventures within music, but this year they both felt something was missing in life and decided it was time to return...so the Vikings are back and they're back with a vengeance!

The sound is more in your face, no-nonsense hardtrance than ever before. Lots of studio-time has been put in and they have had a tight release-schedule with new tracks every month from summer 2018 going forth.

It is now 2019, and the boys are getting back into the scene, starting the new DJ journey here at Seasons of Trance. Expect lots of new material, special bootlegs and remixes to spice up the evening!

We hope you are as excited as we are!


Born on August 23rd 1993, Rinaly is a Japanese music producer and DJ since 2014 for the TCPT agency. Currently focusing on Uplifting Trance, she is also used to mixing Progressive House and Psychedelic Trance.

Starting music in junior high school as a bassist, she played in several live houses with her band, then entered music school at 15 where she polished her producing skills while playing the piano, drums, trombone, etc.

Using her natural music sensitivity to create a unique vibe in her music and mixes, she easily transmits her love for deep music to her audience, and instantly gathered a lot of support.

Her success is not limited to Japan, as she is regularly invited to clubs and events worldwide, mainly around Asia. She doesn't reserve her talents to club music though, and makes appearances on several mainstream scenes. Her remix song for the video game Shoumetsu Toshi
(Disappeared City), downloaded more than 7million times, was featured in the game's "Shoumetsu Toshi Remix Works" compilation album.
She also composes for other various video games and apps, and regularly tours Japan as the back DJ for singer Yamazaru.

From 2016 she gave shape to her vision of Trance parties by starting promoting her own hTears of Tranceh events. With guests DJs such as Ferry Corsten, Ben
Nicky, Ben Gold, Protoculture, or Mark Sixma, they consistently boast around 1000 guests and are the biggest Trance events in Japan.

Her joint track with Ronski Speed "Ronski Speed & Rinaly - Horoscope", released in Autumn 2016, immediately got a lot of attention after being featured in
legendary Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren's radio show "A State of Trance" (ASOT), where Armin van Buuren himself called it "an amazing track!".

Since January 2017, she hosts her own regular radio show on Block.fm, "Tears of Trance radio".

In Autumn 2017 her track "Wave of Affection", released on Andy Moor's label AVA Recordings, found instant success and stayed at the top of the Beatport
Trance chart for several days, reaching 56th on the overall Beatport Chart.

Finding fame way outside of her native Japan, Rinaly can easily be recognized as one of the DJ/Producer with the most momentum on the Trance scene

Bjorn Akesson

Bjorn Akesson, born and bred in the Northern realms of the globe, tapped into trance in his beginning and lives his musical endeavor to this day. Encompassed in a high-octane pool of talent, the Future Sound of Egypt and Armada signee isn’t fearful of breaking down some boundaries. Remaining true to his signature, he is one to pioneer across the energy of trance, making him a truly deserving candidate of a round of Billboard’s Next Big Sound Top 5.

Highlighting the vision of the trance world, Bjorn’s records have moved electronic enthusiasts alongside peers like Armin Van Buuren and Aly & Fila from his iconic release schedule to his monthly run of the Bjorn Akesson Podcast. ‘Perfect Blue’ entered the music pool glowing the senses of followers, making it the track that surged the trance relationship with fans, while gaining momentous support from global DJs.

‘Painting Pyramids’- one for the history books left a soul moving taint on the masses remaining in the minds of many as their all time favorite. With a resume of original titles to his name, the remix page was always going to be written for Bjorn, taking those perfectly balanced edits in W&W, Porter Robinson, Orjan Nilsen, Kyau & Albert and long standing alignment of Aly & Fila who he also collaborated with on FSOE250 official anthem track ‘Sand Theme’.

While on mix duties for FSOE400 compilation, Bjorn Akesson takes to the stage with the long-standing Armada crew on FSOE shows globally, ASOT, Godskitchen and more. He too has covered the festival circuit at Global Gathering, VH1 Supersonic and Buenos Aires Trance alongside fellow pioneers from Ferry Corsten to Dash Berlin. Across the clubs, Bjorn has lit up Ministry of Sound London, Ibiza’s biggest room at Privilege and Space Sharm.

Enriching the trance music summit with every beat from the studio to the stages of worldwide events, Bjorn Akesson has taken an avid shine to the scene and embarks on an even heavier schedule into 2016.

The Blizzard

Cold temperatures increasing...

The Norwegian duo The Blizzard consists of DJ-producer Lars Nyheim and composer-keyboardist Tore Vatle Jensen. In 2007, the mysterious and deep sound of their debut single "Kalopsia" created a massive hype in the trance and progressive scene. Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Gareth Emery, Andy Moor, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz and even Tiësto supported the track, leading to a huge release on Dutch super label Armada Music. What a great start!

Today The Blizzard are well-known contributors from Armada's core roster. They have proven to be an act that never disappoints when it comes to maintaining the quality and consistency of their distinctive sound, as they only release music that is memorable and that has something unique to offer. Their music is packed with wonderful details and has been described as a journey of beauty and discovery. No wonder the world's #1 DJ, Armin van Buuren, dubbed the duo "The Masters of Progressive Trance" and described their music as a "melodic piece of art." Armin also included productions from The Blizzard on his highly acclaimed ASOT compilation -- incredibly -- seven years in a row.

As for remixing, the duo has a remarkable ability to turn a track into something magical. Each and every remix requires countless studio hours and is like a painting in wave form: often with hundred of layers of sounds, including arpeggios, textures, glitches, bass, drums, guitars, effects and vocals. For an example of one of their most elaborate and acclaimed works to date, we invite you to listen to "The Doppler Effect - Beauty Hides In The Deep (The Blizzard Intro Remix)." Moreover, Armin is so impressed with The Blizzard's sound, he has personally requested their remix touch on three of his tracks: "In and Out of Love" (feat. Sharon den Adel), "Take A Moment" (feat. Winter Kills) and "Breathe In Deep" (feat. Fiora).

The radio show "Point Zero with The Blizzard" is the duo's way of showcasing their favorite tunes. Thousands of subscribers download the show to listen to the best in progressive music, exclusive world premieres, and creative mashups. Visit their Soundcloud page (Soundcloud.com/Theblizzard) or search in iTunes to listen.

Having DJ gigs is a natural consequence of releasing great music and having a wonderful radio show. While Tore is in the studio jamming that keyboard, Lars is busy providing rhythms, melodies and bass to dance floors across the globe - Russia, USA, South-Korea, Indonesia, Ukraine, Colombia, Hungary, Holland, to name a few. Lars loves to travel and give something special back to The Blizzard's fans.

Daniel Van Sand

Music producer, DJ, and trance music enthusiast alike, Daniel van Sand [Armada Music, Raz Nitzan] is truly one to acknowledge. And his sound is surely something to endorse. Ranging from future favourite-originals to hard hitting remixes of both well known, and underrated classics. It’s safe to say Daniel promises a trip through trance music in his own style - surely a night you’ll never forget.

Robert Nickson

Nickson. RNX. Spiral... names known all too well to Trance music aficionados behind the decks and on the dancefloor. For more than a decade his productions have defined a genre and he is recognised by both Armin van Buuren & Mixmag as the one who wrote the book on Uplifting Trance.

But who is Robert Nickson?
At first glance you may see just another producer from dance music's cultural home. Whilst his musical influences certainly developed in the Netherlands, Robert’s background is a multi-national affair. Born to an English father and Norwegian mother, his perception of the world naturally become quite broad and unique - perhaps why, when it came to music, his ideas were instantly ahead of the curve.

From the timeless 2004 record 'Spiral' to more recent masterpieces such as 'Everest' & 'Touchdown', Nickson has continually grown his mountain of fans, counting many of the world's leading DJs among them. Global headliners Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Tiësto and Above & Beyond are just some of the tastemakers who have been broadcasting his productions for over a decade.

"If you ever have to explain to your parents what trance music is, play 'Spiral' by Robert Nickson"
- Armin Van Buuren

Any living soul who can produce music of this calibre should be no stranger to the stage and Robert is no exception. His DJ style, whilst authentic and without need for flashy stage effects, takes listeners on an ethereal journey beyond the realm of consciousness.

"When you die and go to Trance heaven, this is what they'll be playing in the arrivals lounge"
- Mixmag review of Spiral

Having toured all corners of the earth from London to Los Angeles, Sydney to San Francisco and beyond, Nickson has refined the raw edge that made his original sound and DJ sets so palpable. Despite ever-changing dancefloor trends, he has continued to bestow upon us the extraordinary. In fact, a quick look at his gig diary and release schedule shows us this melodic mastermind is very much in the prime of his career.

Over the last 12-18 months Robert Nickson has reminded us that in an age of super-festivals, with all their visual spectacle, there is simply no replacement for genuinely touching music. His updated version of debut hit 'Out There' stood proud among the top of the Beatport Trance chart for weeks. Once again the Nickson name was splashed across every major compilation album (ASOT 2016, Pure Trance Vol.5, FSOE #450, Grotesque etc.) He even found time to co-write the 'Essence' album and create a unique LIVE experience with long-term collaborator Re:Locate.

With such an extensive back catalogue and air-miles balance one would be forgiven for assuming Robert Nickson has already celebrated his illustrious career. However, with even more live performances, festival appearances and a new RNX album on the horizon, you can be sure the best is yet to come from this noble producer.
