Orjan Nilsen is a well established name in the Trance/EDM world, and this is the first time I’ve heard a liveset by this man. It made my day, seeing as I do loved his music when he burst into the scene many years ago. Haven’t really followed the Trance scene a lot, but still have a deep feeling for it. Orjan Nilsen (or Ørjan Nilsen, as it’s originally written) has made some really good tracks, and from the first time I heard his music, his name got stuck in my head. When his name appeared on Soundcloud, I immediately went to this liveset and gave it a go, seeing as it’s been a very long time since I last heard his music, and boy, this didn’t let me down at all. Amazing set.
A State Of Trance (a.k.a. ASOT) is a global phenomena, and thousands/millions have been at ASOT events. Been held all over the world, this started as a small scale thing and has exploded to this unique and well established event, with a very good reputation. On the 30th of January 2016 they organised the 750th event in Toronto, Canada, and the feedback was amazing. ASOT is an unstoppable force, and you have to been to at least one event before you die. I haven’t been yet, but I will and must. If the music is really as good as Orjan’s set, it will be an amazing night I will not forget in a long time.

I apologise for not writing his name properly, but the keyboard combination (alt+0248) didn’t work as it should. Stupid keyboard. Well, at least you know who I’m talking about, eh?
It’s been many years since I last heard one of his tracks, and if you compare his music from then to now, they are slightly different. Still highly entertainable, you can hear the crowd go absolutely mental! I think this was recorded live from a radio show (I’m a ASOT noob), because after a few tracks you hear a short interview, which ruins the good music being played at the background, but when the interview bit ends, the music comes back, and does hit you hard.
The music is good. The crowd’s response is amazing. The set is good. What’s there to mention? There’s nothing I can say that might give this liveset a bad rating. This has made me create a small ASOT in my living room (without the thousands of ravers, or proper light equipment, or proper speakers). This is different to the music I am used to (from Orjan Nilsen), but this is still excellent. Feast for my ears.
This makes me want to visit one of ASOT parties, but sadly at the moment I’ve got bigger things to worry about. Moving countries is more important at the moment, but once I’ve settled, I will do my best and purchase tickets, and hopefully Orjan Nilsen will play at the ASOT event I will visit, because his music is good.
Trance, you’ve captured me again. I have fallen in love again. Thanks Orjan, thank you.
