The trance mix decks have definitely felt empty without MarsNRG. But now he’s back, and with a smashing 2 and a half hour mix, filled with a wide variety of trance tunes. MarsNRG also selected music from a variety of years, including one banging classic from Sunday Club which i’m listening to right now, entitled “Healing Dream”.
MarsNRG’s mix celebrates the first year of his show on PureDJ.fm, the first of many more years to come in the future
Speaking of the future, we are busy behind the scenes completely revamping the trancemix and djmixes experience. I can tell you now that it includes a brand new site. Also, our focus will always be on connecting amazing DJs and Artists with amazing fans, whether they are famous or not. So stay tuned for updates on that.
For now though, let’s start the rave!!! Come celebrate with us, MarsNRG’s first PureDJ Anniversary trance mix.
MarsNRG is an aspiring DJ resident in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Still aiming to find an opportunity to play to a live audience, he continues to advertise himself on the web through his blogs and sets shared with the whole world. Mars is an acronym for his name, it stands for Marcos Silvestri. That is also meant to be the planet Mars, and MarsNRG is an expression of his potential and taste for electronic music.
His admired Trance artists and Projects, some of them which fostered his interest for Trance, are Ferry Corsten, Gouryella, Robert Miles, DJ Tiesto, Mauro Picotto, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Binary Finary, Transa, Art of Trance, Union Jack, Ayla, DJ Taucher, Brainbug, B.B.E., Gigi D’Agostino, Fragma, Lasgo, ATB, Sash!, etc. Mister Picotto is the most admired for what he used to produce in the beginning of the century, and he played a substantial role in MarsNRG’s interest for Trance music.
Even though he has a peculiar taste for Trance, he also enjoys other styles of music and keeps on mixing the 80s, 90s and 2000s electronic music, entailing House, Flash House (the sound of the 80s), Speed Garage, Eurodance, Electro House, Hard House, Jungle and D&B, Hard Dance, and last but not least, Trance, in some of its genres, mainly Uplifting, Hard, Dream and Vocal Trance. As times goes by he feels more and more inclined to dedicate his efforts to Trance and Hard styles as a whole, the sound that he considers the most enjoyable to rock to the fullest.
MarsNRG does not mind about a set 100% perfect to the accurate crew, he likes exposing challenges and how he manages to overcome them in a set, all live. His thought is, there are too many 100% perfect sets out there, and usually, these sets do not show that there is a DJ behind them, operating the decks, taking risks and overcoming difficulties that come up out of the blue only to those ones who truly mix, that is, using their ears and hands to showcase their talent. Small signs of imperfection are considered as pride since people will say, both DJs and mere listeners, the DJ was there and showed what he’s got.
It is his pride to mix, not to get it mixed by an automatic software/equipment. The sole thing that he would like at this special moment is getting a high number of plays, faves and comments on his sets, in a way expose to the world his potential in the mix and passion for electronic music.
Feel the power from Mars, the MarsNRG’s might!
It has been a whole year MarsNRG is a guest DJ, owing his radio show on PureDJ FM (www.puredj.fm). This opportunity is special and to celebrate it, a brand new set has been created bringing 26 songs. Having 1 set per month broadcast on PureDJ, MarsNRG decided to select 2 songs from each set played along the year to put together an outstanding compilation of more than 2:30h of pure Trance, classic and modern.
It was not an easy task to select only 2 from each set, but be ready to listen to some of MarsNRG’s favorites. You start Dreaming, then go Progressively till you Dream again. After, you go Uplifting with some Tech taste, eventually reaching the Underworld which will present you something different, extra, a Live Trick by MarsNRG to make those 11 minutes in the Underworld even more pleasant.
MarsNRG did not follow the DJ recipe, he tried to be bold and performed some transitions differently from what we commonly hear around. He enjoys new ways of achieving something, it can be surprisingly tasteful.
