Trance music will never forget some real pioneers and promoters who have always been ever present and whose efforts have been ‘as immense as the sea’ ever since the emergence of the genre in the 90s.
Below is a list of the 20 most influential people in trance music who have done and still do their part in elevating the genre to new heights.
Arny Bink and Dimitri de Wit
Arny: Managing Director and Co-founder of Black Hole Recordings – a label that has given the world some amazing tunes and brought about a revolution. Back then with Tiesto and now going solo, Arny Bink has brought about a revolution. He is currently empowering artists like John O’Callaghan, Mark Sherry, Jordan Suckley and many more to produce and distribute music they love. He is truly a man to look up to.
Dimitri: The face behind Twenty4Seven Management, Dmitri is a driving force in the trance music industry continually working to revive and promote the genre. He managed Tiesto during his hay days of trance and was known to bring some amazing ideas to life. Now with Twenty4Seven Management, he has the biggest trance talent pool under his kitty. Artists like Aly & Fila, Solarstone, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Mark Sherry and many more. Hats off Dmitri.
Founder-Director of David Lewis Productions, a company specializing in Artist Management and Bookings, David has been associated with some of the big names in trance music such as the likes of Armin van Buuren, ANOTR, Andrew Rayel, Dave Winnel, Kenneth G, Ruben de Ronde, and several others.
Young, dynamic and regarded as the future face of EDM, Will Morgan Holland has accomplished what seemed elusive for many artists today. He is the creator of Enhanced Music, a brand that is now being regarded by many as one of the most famous among today’s trance labels. Apart from Enhanced, he’s a true entrepreneur in the trance music circuit as he partly owns LabelWorxx: used extensively by artists and labels to share promos with the world. He also owns Assured Artists managing the likes of Lange, Sean Tyas, Paul Oakenfold, Susana, Andy Moor and more. Apart from all this, he also manages Digital Society nights in the UK. Wow Will, we all want to be like you!
Tim is the owner and manager of Stark Profiles+ PR. He has been around the trance music scene for quite sometime now, starting off as a DJ then working as a Sales Manager and slowly co-producing in the studio to becoming a Publicist for popular dance publications. He has managed communications for Black Hole Recordings, Vandit Music and has worked closely with marquee artists over the years like Paul van Dyk, Markus Schulz, John 00 Fleming, Solarstone and more. An overall great guy!
