Had it somehow escaped your attention, of late Grotesque has been in overdrive. Within just the last month alone the label side of RAM’s marque has notched up a hat-trick of Beatport #1s. Their events arm meanwhile have just brought word of a 2018 international expansion, with Grotesque shows confirmed to tour the States, Asia and Europe. On the mix-comp front, RAM is a man whose largesse likewise knows no limits!! Fresh off the back of last month’s killer ‘Reworked & Remixed’ outing, with ‘Grotesque 300’, he’s ready to formulate another mix-spectacular into December’s equation.
To celebrate the transmission of another 50 episodes of the Grotesque Radio Show, our trance troubadour again descended on Rotterdam’s historic Maassilo compound in early December. In tow were 5000 wildly up-for-it fans, and another unforgettable crowd-wowing night was the sure-fire outcome.
A CD ‘compadre’ to its milestone celebrations, ‘300’ delivers an all-dancing all-trancing Carnival of the Grotesque companion to your door! Heading up the mixes are tech-trance legend Marco V, the Grotesque kingpin himself, RAM and one of the scene’s most rapid risers in 2017, Darren Porter. Over 312 hours and across 43 tracks, it brings the night’s highs back into the sharpest focus. The three spinners have compiled and mixed the best, most seismic, most ‘300’-capturing trance available into it!
So prepare for a fast flashback to that ‘Cirque du Trance’: Grotesque 300. The album is available online, through physical stores and via streaming sites now here.
