Tomi Fallenius was born in Lohja, Finland. Tom started his musical life at the age of 10, when he picked up his brother’s guitar and started to play. At the age of 16 he found electronic music listening to Gary D. D-Trance collections and fell in love with the trance music. His first steps as a producer were made with the legendary modplug tracker and soon after that followed Jeskola Buzz and finally Cubase.
Tom is a very passionate producer and has sacrificed almost all of his life to music. Nowdays he spends hours in the studio, always learning new ways to produce and develop his sound. 2010 was a great year, starting with his debut single ‘Cubic’ released on Anjunadeep to his latest works ‘Reflections’ and ‘Dive’ released on Silk Music. Tom has also made some well acclaimed remixes for artists like Audien, Faruk Sabanci, Karanda and Mango.
His tracks and remixes have gained a huge amount of support from such names as, Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Ashley Wallbridge, Marcus Schossow, Kyau vs. Albert, Super8 & Tab, Dan Stone, Dash Berlin, Andy Moor and many many more.
Johan Vilborg is a DJ/Producer/Audio Engineer based in Stockholm, Sweden. He started out borrowing his father’s old turntables back in 1999 and quickly got his first taste for electronic music. 2003 was the year he stumbled across FL Studio, in which he quickly immersed himself and started creating his own music. Now over 10 years later, he has gathered a lot of experience, from releasing music on some of the best labels in Trance & Progressive, as well as graduating from an Audio Engineering study at the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International). The result of the latter was to garner essential knowledge in all aspects of sound engineering and music.
Johan’s music is known for uplifting and powerfully melodic chord progressions and bouncy grooves. Yet, it is versatile enough to not only be played at clubs and festivals, but also on road trips and during beachside moments of relaxation. Johan also co-hosts Silk Music Showcase, a Top 100 iTunes Podcast, several times per year. Like his music, his DJ sets are typically euphoric and uplifting.
Johan’s productions have earned tremendous global recognition. His remix of Dinka’s “Lotus” for Silk Music was featured as “Record of the Week” on Above & Beyond’s “Trance Around The World” radio show (now “Group Therapy”). The single went on to reach the top of the Beatport Trance charts for many weeks to follow. Working to gain a bigger reputation in his native country, he remixed one of Sweden’s biggest anthems in 2013, which was finally used as the official intro on Sweden’s biggest EDM festival “Summerburst”. His music is not only supported on radio by Above & Beyond, but also Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Paul van Dyk, Andy Moor, Judge Jules, BT, Solarstone, Tritonal, Jaytech, and numerous other leading Trance & Progressive artists.
Greek producer Lefteris Pimenidis, better known as Terry Da Libra, is one of the most exciting artists to spring onto the electronic scene in some time. With his releases such as “Moonspell” and “Dynamis” [Silk Music], as well as “Don’t Give Up” and “Heavenly” [Enhanced], Terry has crafted his own unique sound based around emotive harmonies and melodic progressive flair. Supported by some of the biggest DJ’s in the industry, he continues to move forward, striving to create original work that stirs the emotions of the listener.
Born in Germany, Terry’s musical roots are firmly established. After many years of collaborative work with local DJ’s and nightclubs, he ventured into producing in 2009. Terry’s perseverance has paid off with continued success; his works have been played by Armin van Buuren (“Tune Of The Week” on ASOT #606), Above & Beyond, Paul van Dyk and Markus Schulz to name a few. His remix of Positiva’s “Jamrock” on Silk Music was voted the “Web Vote Winner” on the 412th episode of Trance Around The World.
He continues to show diversity amongst his productions and as a result, the future is very bright for Terry Da Libra.
Marko Cubric, known to the world as Vintage & Morelli, is Serbia’s leading trance producer. While this Belgrade born Producer and DJ’s public recognition has sky rocketed in only the last few years, his involvement in music began at a very early age. Growing up in a musical family, he went on to study at the Faculty of Music Arts in Belgrade, which culminated in a very dynamic, versatile approach.
Heavily influenced by artists such as Dumonde, Riva, Enigma, Era, Above & Beyond, PVD, Agnelli & Nelson, Blank & Jones, and Robert Miles, and stand-out mixes like Peace & love by Dj Tatana, he has always been charmed by that frontier where modern technology meets music. His forward thinking approach has led to a deep, uplifting style that invokes many emotions reminiscent of various stages through his life.
His attention to detail has gained the support of many of industry greats and personal idols, including Above & Beyond, Ad Brown, Mike Shiver, Protoculture, Matt Darey, Ruben De Ronde, Roger Shah, Jaytech, Paul Oakenfold, Aruna, Ben Nicky, Myon & Shane54 Ronski Speed, Max Graham, Dash Berlin, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Marcus Schossow, and York, who he recently lived and worked with for 3 months.
Vintage & Morelli’s music reflects his adventurous lifestyle. Recently producing from the Caribbean, he’s just as happy creating a smooth, melodic, laid back record as he is producing a driving club hit. Currently releasing off leading trance and progressive labels such as Silk Music, Planet Love (Armada), Perceptive and Alter Ego, his plans for the next twelve months include new originals, collaborations and remixes, as well as his first studio album.
Canadian music producer, mastering engineer, DJ, and violinist, Jayeson Andel is a unique fixture in the progressive trance and house genres. In pursuit of finding the balance between high club energy and emotional melodic hooks to create a luxury of sorts, he shares musical ties with Above & Beyond, Andrew Bayer, and Mat Zo; Seven Lions, The Glitch Mob, and The M Machine, although out of the delivered genre provide an alternate perspective and tie-in. It’s this mix that allows for the signature that is Jayeson Andel: fine tuned details, strong grooves and melodic hooks, and all around pure power!
Not only is Jayeson actively creating music but also building the industry side of things as well. His work spans from A&R for Nueva to freelance mastering services — seeing clients break into the Top 10 on Beatport genre charts.
With growing support and airplay from those including and surrounding Group Therapy, and A State of Trance radio shows, his work on Silk Music, Nueva, Elliptical Sun Melodies, and more are quickly becoming a significant point of value within the libraries of labels and listeners.
