The now 26 year old Andrew Rayel first came to prominence under the guidance of leading trance DJ, Armin van Buuren, who featured Rayel’s first major track, Aether on his A State of Trance radio show and then compilation of the same name in 2013.
This was at a time when trance was still soaring anthems and ethereal mountains of sound, bordering on great classical musical. His Moldavian breeding probably helped to form his classical trance background. Like many of his contemporaries, he later moved on to the banging commercial EDM sounds.
He now tours the major festivals around the world, but on this night in early May, Bali had the chance to see Rayel up close and personal at Petitenget’s Mirror nightclub.
Andrew Rayel played to a packed house on Friday, May 3rd. Bali nightlife had never seen anything like it. Here’s a snippet of what transpired and he definitely had them jumping.
