Alex 'Beatsole' is a talented trance producer from Russia. Influenced by acts like Cosmic Gate, Paul van Dyk, Rank 1, Taxigirl, Above & Beyond, Zoo Brazil and Ferry Corsten he found his passion for electronic dance music at the age of 19.
In 2011 the feedback on his music was really great and so he decided to try his skills in other genres aswell. Alex created some new ’Progressive Trance' productions and that’s what he’s still doing: creating new sounds in every genre he likes.
Because of Beatsole’s really fresh sounding productions he already gained a lot of respect from well-known artists like Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Kyau & Albert, Max Graham, Solarstone, Giuseppe Ottaviani, John Askew, just to name but a few.
Book Marco Cera
Marco's interest in music already began in the nursery; grown up in the late 80s and early 90s he's always been looking for new melodies, groovy beats and sweeping rhythms. In the middle of the 90s he found a musical genre that fits very well: Trance music.
Marco very early had the wish to play this kind of music in front of people just to show them that there's much more outside than just Pop, Rock or House music; so he began to learn DJing in a youth club back in 1999.
Two years later he was allowed to show his skills in front of 1.000 people at a local discotheque because he was learning very fast and had a very unique taste of music and style of mixing tracks together. A lot of people were very thankful that someone finally wasn't playing only the standard you could hear every single day on the radio but playing unknown versions and remixes of well known tracks. Marco always had the right track at the right time, mixing House with Trance and Techno all in one set; that's his whole life and he's never wanting to change that.
In 2007 and 2008 Marco won several prices at 2 DJ contests on Paul van Dyk's very own 'Vonyc radio'. His sets were played at the 'Reticent Mix Session' and at the 'DJ Mag Mix Competition Week'. But that wasn't enough: club-gigs with big names like Kyau & Albert, Talla 2XLC, Stoneface & Terminal, Ronski Speed, Markus Schulz or even Paul van Dyk followed!
After having a break Marco changed his artist name from 'mar she' to 'Marco Cera' and started producing again at the end of 2016. The first track was a collaboration with Alan Morris which had great success on Armin van Buuren’s very own imprint A State Of Trance.
Since a very young age Sonic Element was interested in many musical genres. He started to learn the piano at the age of 14 and continued for around five years. During this time he had several formal music exams with ANZCA and also performed at several live events.
One of the influences while learning piano was a weekly radio show called "Club Cow". After listening to that show extensively Sonic Element decided to get into music production.
Prior to the project Sonic Element he produced music based on classical genres.
However with a next generation of Trance music he decided to start something new and fresh, something that concentrates on the raw aspects of Trance music like punchy bass lines and rolling drums.
So, the project Sonic Element was born in August 2007 which has led to many exciting releases with support by almost all major DJs in the Trance scene.
In recent years he has been closely working with Rob Stevenson (Activa) and his label Borderline Music.
In addition to music production Sonic Element has a strong passion for both music and computer technology and is definitely a geek from the bottom of his heart.
