Are You An Unsigned Trance Producer?

Published

on

Today we talk to Dave Verney from ToneTrance Record Label, a new label set up to promote unknown and talented Trance producers.
 
1) What’s the name of your Record Label?
ToneTrance
 
2) How did the name come about?
I had quite a few ideas to begin with. I tried TranceTone and Googled it. I thought that was quite a good name, but it was taken and so I changed the name around a bit and called it ToneTrance. Everyone I mentioned the name to agreed that it was a good name for a trance music label.
 
3) Do you run the label by yourself?
Largely, although my wife helps with answering the phone etc. The vast majority of my work is in promoting the producers who I’m working with and I do this in various ways and through different contacts. My sales target for each album is 50,000 copies and these figures are quite achieveable with the work we put in and the quality of the music.
 
  In the industry today, more and more people are switching to digital downloads and we work with more than 200 digital music stores. Although it is sad to see the downfall of the brick and mortar retail shops that we grew up with, there is a lot of opportunity to sell as much music as we like and meet any demands without paying for printing and copying of CD’s. It is a fantastic time to be a part of the industry and it is likely to keep getting better.
 
4) What made you want to create a record label dedicated to Trance Music?
I listen to Trance and other EDM genres all the time and a lot of the music I hear is from unknown and unpaid producers who really do have a lot of talent and who should be paid for having such talent. I also have a lot of business experience and I have the ability and contacts to market and promote producers work with excellent results.
 
The idea in starting a label was to help these people in gaining exposure, getting paid for their music, building a following for their music and I can release tracks into any music charts in the world. Being able to make people’s dreams come true is really my reason for getting involved in the music industry and it will be very rewarding.
 
Another reason for setting up a label is to promote my own music through it. My music is not as good as the people, I’m working with, but hopefully in time I will be releasing my own music. My pseudonym for the music is Richard Bean and that is the name on my SoundCloud, Bandcamp, MySpace and my business yahoo email. It is taken from my middle name (Richard) and my mother’s maiden name (Bean).
 
5) Is Trance music more popular today or is it now an underground genre?
I first got into trance in the trance boom at the turn of the century. I used to shut myself away and blast the likes of Darude, Energy 52, William Orbit and others from any CD player I could find. It really did define the turn of the century for me and my friends. Everyone was getting into it – and it didn’t matter about age, gender, background, race, sexuality, occupation. There was even a Catholic friar here in England who would (and no doubt still is) play this music all the time he could. This friar told people that trance was a gift from God, and indeed it really is.
 
Trance music today is still growing. There are still people in the world who have not heard trance music and there are still people being converted in their musical tastes. Asia, in particular, is one part of the world that is increasing in trance fans all the time. People just love this music, and when we hear it, it is easy to know why.
 
6) Are you looking for new talent? How can they send you demos?
I am always looking for new talent. If you want me to listen to and consider your music for my work, please send me a link to your SoundCloud or any other website where you may have music and I will make time to listen in. You can email me at tonetrancerecordlabel@yahoo.co.uk. I am still looking for great tracks that we can add to the first album, so if you have something special, please email me.
 
7) Are you planning to release a new song or EP soon?
The first album we will release, should be released by the end of next month. It is going to be a compilation of different artists whose work has not yet been released into the commercial music industry. The album will be entitled, First Impressions and it is really to test the market popularity for each of the artists.
 
8) What is next for the label? Do you have in mind future projects?
We will hopefully be releasing solo albums with all of the ones that show popularity. As I said before, I’m hoping for sales of 50,000+ copies within the first year and I think that is very achieveable.

dennis sheperd and katty heath - losing my mind

Without exaggeration, this is one of the greatest Trance anthems of 2020. Check out the fascinating collaboration between Dennis Sheperd and Katty Heath on “Losing My Mind.” I love how the intensity keeps building throughout the entire track. The chorus captures the emotions of someone who is dealing with a challenging situation. Certainly, the strong vocals make the beats roar which catapults this new single into chart success. On a side note, this is not the first time these artists have worked together. In 2016, they teamed up for “Dare To Dream, which is also plenty of meaningful emotions.

In the case of “Losing My Mind,” the German producer and DJ reveals a more intimate work. In fact, it represents all the turmoil he experienced last year. Recently, he surprised his fans with the announcement of his upcoming album. which also revolves around personal struggles and setting aside stigmas. Can’t wait for it…

Lyrics

Reflections, of what could have been
Searching inside, lost track of time
The truth, is so hard to see
Confusion, is hiding the path from me

I feel like I’m losing my mind, it’s so hard to know what is right
I feel like screaming it out and breaking it down
And leaving it all behind
I feel like I’m losing my mind, it’s so hard to know what is right
I feel like screaming it out, and breaking it down
And leaving it all, leaving it all behind

castles in the sky

Ian Van Dahl‘s “Castles In The Sky” must be one of your favorites timeless sing-along anthems. Music producers MaRLo and Triode along with HALIENE did a great remake of this classic hit. Of course, nothing will be able to surpass the original version that brings us good memories of the 2000s. In any case, I like the new arrangements implemented.

Certainly, chord progressions, high levels of intensity, chorus, and the breakdown are summarized in pure perfection. Dense and propulsive, this track doesn’t lose the essence of the progressive style. Moreover, emotions will uplift any soul, and the visuals clearly make justice to this premise. Right away, you’re about to enjoy an amazing piece of art from certified talents within the contemporary Trance genre. The cover of “Castles In The Sky” is also designed explicitly for DJ use at festivals or clubs. Just cross your fingers and hope the pandemic ends soon.

song about fear

Hailing from Romania, Alexandra Badoi is known in the global Trance community for her haunting vocals. Her latest offering is a song about fear, anxiety, and insecurity. Infidelity is a problem that emerges when there’s no serious commitment. As a matter of fact, this nice composition produced by Headstrong revolves around the natural consternation of losing your partner. You can expect short but deep lyrics that will make you reflect on your relationship.

Sonically, there’s an epic melody that includes bright piano chords that fit well with the emotions behind this tune. Alexandra’s poetic songwriting excels on this record, and I hope you like the visuals as much as I do. Can’t wait to hear more from the singer, who originally caught the attention of this blog back in 2017, with “Did We Feel?”.

Lyrics

I shed a tear,
I cry each night for you
I heard a song,
That broke my heart in two
But I believe,
Our love is true
Every moment,
I think of you

I have a fear,
You’re wounding me
I have a fear,
You’re hurting me
And it’s hard,
To be sure
If your love,
Is so pure

Chris Fennec
Pressing play on “Burst On Fire” makes you realize that there are still Trance earworms in present times. Since starting his career, Chris Fennec has been a great admirer of Above and Beyond, Tiësto, Armin van Buuren and Markus Schulz. One way or another, the Belgian producer encompasses his influences obtaining as a result uplifting tones. Certainly, the passionate male vocals featured on his new single lead up progressively to a full full-force drop and a climax that’ll leave you wanting more.

[maxbutton id=”3″ url=”https://www.beatport.com/release/burst-on-fire/3045731″ ]

Not for nothing, he has been active in the electronic music realm for over 32 years. In fact, working on ghost producing projects for some big names in the industry served him to enrich his knowledge. You can tell Chris is a perfectionist with a trademark sound that maintains momentum with blazing synths, highly melodic beats, and emotive lyrics.

According to the artist himself, his creative melodies always come out of the blue or in the middle of the night. If the final output brings goosebumps then he knows he has just made a catchy jam that ignites a fire in listeners. Stay tuned to his socials below.
