Opinions and thoughts of an expert ranter and raver

10301143371For some time, I have been meaning to write this raving review about how much I love Andrew Rayel.  But just like everything else of mere importance in my life, I had said I would do it “tomorrow”.  Before I knew it, “tomorrow” became eternal and 6 months later I still find myself justifying “tomorrow”.  Well “tomorrow” is today and I finally have a new review.  Andrew Rayel has long been on my list of djs to watch and he has quickly made a name for himself with Armada music and even taking part in the big ASOT festivals (650 and 600).  His trance is exactly what I need in my life; exactly what we ALL need in life.  Not many of his original tracks are vocal but he tends to remix a lot of vocal tracks (beautifully, I might add).  What I love most about his music is I feel that it truly speaks to the heart.  As much as I love a song that you can sing along to, his music sings directly to you without the distraction of having to pay attention to lyrics.  I can feel the emotion in all of his music and rather than happy, upbeat trance, I like that its a little dark and sometimes sad (but in a beautiful way of course).  On top of that, his dark tunes will definitely make you dance your ass off if you are listening to one of his sets.  Because of the rise in popularity of all EDM genres and the influx of new DJs and producers,  its hard to find originality these days.  For the most part, a lot of the stuff sounds the same.  All the producers make music that sounds the same and all the DJs seem to use to same songs (I’m basing this off of all the Ultra sets I listened to).  However, I feel like Andrew Rayel has stayed original and is truly a legendary trance producer.  He doesn’t produce mindless party tunes, he really digs deep and elicits an emotional response with his music.  Below are my 3 favorite tracks by him.  I hope you enjoy and love hims just as much as I do:
