Following the sold out Trance classics in August, Majefa brings you the first in a series of basement parties to be hosted in the newly refurbished basement of our host venue Sound Control in Manchester on Saturday 14th December. This brand new concept will focus on bringing the true sound of the underground Trance scene to the city of Manchester, with line ups consisting of some of the true pioneers of the international Trance circuit and artists that are currently representing the undercurrent of the underground Trance sound.
For the first installment we begin with a bang with one of the most prolific artist the Trance scene has ever seen, the legendary Gatecrasher resident Scott Bond! Having travelled the world representing the worlds most iconic dance music brand for well over a decade, Scott Bond will be playing an exclusive set covering a mixture of underground classics and Mr Bond's Re:Booted sound. For any Trance fan this is truly unmissable.
The next headline act we are very excited about welcoming to the Majefa decks. Making his debut performance is Ben Lost! Many of you may know Ben Lost from such hits such as 'Jump the Next Train', 'Digital Reason', 'Another Sunday' and 'Needs to Feel' and also his Federation moniker which he is signed to Paul Oakenfold's Perfecto Fluoro label with. Ben will be showcasing the darker side for this Majefa underground special. Be prepared this is going to special!
Our next act needs little introduction. It is current man of the moment Akira Kayosa! 2013 has been a busy year for Akira Kayosa with a compilation out on Blackhole recordings, a gig roster that has taken him all over Europe, tracks out on Subculture, Titan Audio, Perceptive, Mondo, In Trance We trust and also featuring on John O'callaghan's Subculture compilation, Max Graham Cycles 4 and Aly & Fila's FSOE vol 2 compilations, big things are afoot for Akira Kayosa!
We are very pleased to welcome back one of Majefa's favourite ever guest DJ's, Freesoup! After a small hiatus from the Trance scene, the ever talented Soup is back in the saddle and has stormed his way back with his new track 'Volver'! Follow the link below to check it out.
Last but by very no means least is Matt Lickess, resident for one of the UK's biggest psy-trance brands Illuminaughty. Matt will be providing the more progressive, psy tinged sound to the night to complete the full spectrum of Trance that is too be showcased on what is set to be another storming Majefa!
