The book was written by Dutch author Arjan Rietveld, who has spent three years of exhaustive research and interviews on gathering the most essential information, making sure this book is as detailed as possible and earning the title of the most definitive account yet of the genre’s history. Going from the birth to the glory years, to the seminal and ascending periods, there isn’t a stone left unturned when it comes to this trance book. Rietveld talked to some of the genre’s biggest leaders including Solarstone, Laurent Veronnez, Banco de Gaia, Sander Kleinenberg, Cosmic Baby, Delirium, Jam El Mar, Marco V, Nu NRG and Push. If this wasn’t enough, he also gets the expertise and thoughts of label heads in the scene such as Black Hole Recordings head Arny Bink and many more. With trance lovers being able to get a real insight into the genre from those that produce it and those that help it be as successful as it is, it certainly makes for an interesting read.
The book is now available from Mary Go Wild and published in Holland.
