“The trick isn’t so much being lucky, but more recognising luck when it happens” suggests Nic Chagall. “Nic & I could have gotten talking in the reception area of that studio in 1999 and – looking back – might have just gone our separate ways, contemplates Bossi. “That’s not what happened though, is it?!” smiles

Claude VonStroke joins forces with ZDS and KE for “Comments,” and Malaa takes things up a notch with a feisty remix of DJ Snake’s “Savage.” Madeaux links with Dances With White Girls for “Club Demons,” and “Worlds Collide” on Nervo’s latest. Goldroom continues a slew of releases with “I Can Feel It” with Love, Alexa. ShockOne and The Bloody Beetroots take to Monstercat for their new single, “Run,” and Laidback Luke and Mark Bale dance into the weekend with “Party Starter.” Klingande and Stevie Appleton craft an easygoing single in “Sinner,” and Moguai remixes Oliver Heldens’ “Summer Lover.”

Exclusive: Cosmic Gate debut their very first documentary, ‘Materia’

This post was originally published on this site

Cosmic Gate

A new insight into Nic Chagall and Bossi — known collectively as Cosmic Gate — has materialized.

Materia means ‘matter’. . . the substance . . . everything around us,” explains Chagall about Cosmic Gate’s latest album endeavor to a cameraman at the beginning of his group’s first ever documentary. It follows the duo across the globe in pursuit of finding deeper meaning musically, and the purveyance of the new message that they wish to spread to international audiences.

Polished cinematography and in-depth interviews expose a supergroup who, despite their stardom, remain more passionate and committed than ever to their craft and in creating a positive impact for their audiences. Their ultimate goal with Materia? To synthesize all of the elements, or “matter” of their past & present music into a modernized sonic story whose message points to the next step in the Cosmic Gate evolution.

Each track’s production, they state, is a product of intense writing and re-writing and collaboration with a selection of singers. These are then arranged carefully into album form, in which they use their “creative freedom” to branch out and fully embrace what they wish — be it softer shades of vocal trance, or rougher, more cavernous tunes for the main stage.

“We love DJing and the whole club scene . . . we love producing. It’s our world!” – Bossi

That said, Materia is distinctively Cosmic Gate; by encapsulating their aesthetic so concisely into this new project, in turn they hope to help push the musical envelope further into the future. We then see this taking effect in their sets as they tour through ADE, LA, London, and Tomorrowland performing their new music in narrative form. To their delight, emotions captured on their fans’ faces shows open acceptance for what they have to offer.

Materia – The Documentary will be available through all streaming platforms on June 8. In the meantime, Dancing Astronaut has the pleasure of debuting an advance stream of this stunning audiovisual tale.
