Black Hole Recordings October 2007 Update

October update from the Black Hole Recordings crew featuring news on artist albums from Jonas Steur, Mark Norman and First State and a brand new mix album from the mighty Cosmic Gate coming up. Check it out!

Jonas Steur - Born For The Night

Jonas Steur, the Belgian trance prodigy who signed his first record deal at seventeen, recently released his debut artist album on Black Hole Recordings. The double album, that varies in styles from deep trance to Latin house, shows that Jonas Steur can compete with the big names in the scene, not only as a producer but also as an artist.

Jonas has been actively producing music since 2001. Under the artist name Estuera, he scored several hits in the past six years on Black Hole Recordings, Magik Muzik and In Trance We Trust. For this
double CD, Jonas selected a total of nineteen of his own productions. The title is Born For The Night and houses two discs: the first with ten separate tracks and the second with a nonstop DJ mix.

Out Now!

Catalogue number: Black Hole CD 46

Mark Norman - Colours

Mark Norman are based in the Netherlands and deliver their releases for the Magik Muzik label. With several number 1 hits, various mix albums and two Dutch dance awards for services to dance music in their pockets, they are rocking the Worldís leading festivals and events like Trance Energy, Mysteryland and many more.

With their busy DJ schedule, entertaining crowds around the world with their unique and skilled performances, this year already has been a busy one for the Dutch duo. A logical follow-up to 2006, which was just as hectic since they released their first artist album Synchronicity. Almost immediately after their album release they began their Around the World in 80 Days tour, with which they also delivered one of the most unique concepts in the industry in 2006. The most memorable event for the pair was a show stopping performance on New Yearís Eve, alongside Enrique Iglesias at the glamorous Nikki Beach on St Bartha an event which neither of them will forget!

The first single, titled Colour my Eyes already became a massive success, so together with the floor filler Blikken Machine you can expect the full on, cutting edge, Mark Norman sound with added melodic flair. To celebrate the release of their fantastic new album, Mark Normanís management Global Twist Music is preparing a grand world tour, supported by V Media Creative, alongside Black Hole Recordings.

Release date: 29-10-2007
Catalogue number: Magik Muzik CD 09

First State - Time Frame

Ralph Barendse released his first dance record in 1999 as Alpha Breed. In 2001 a new track was noticed by TiŽsto and got signed and released as Ralphie B - Massive on In Trance We Trust (Black Hole Recordings). The trance record became a huge success and is still considered a classic.

In 2005, Sander and Ralphie decided to work together on a track. Their first co-production was called First State - First State and was released on In Trance We Trust. It became a big hit and got played exclusively by TiŽsto for a long time before the rest of the big DJs followed. Because of the success of this new project and the huge click between both of them, Ralphie and Sander decided to combine
their powers, merging the studio together in Dordrecht, The Netherlands and form a duo.

The guys spent almost a year to produce their album and finished it with a total of ten tracks that fully represent what they stand for. The setup of the whole record is one similar to a DJ set: an easy
going beginning that grows with house-style tracks towards a epic climax with more techy productions. Of course the real trance aficionado will find what he wants: the fat trance sound that made the duo famous complete with classical arrangements. At the same time, obvious influences of regular house and minimal are present in songs like Falling with Anita Kelsey, which currently features on
TiŽstoís successful mix compilation In Search of Sunrise 6, or the ones with Tiff Lacey and Elliot Johns.

The biggest challenge for First State was to deliver an album that reflects the time in which it was made, and still delivers timeless tracks that have the power to become classics or even anthems.

Release date: 21-11-2007
