In honor of #TranceGiving, aka Dreamstate SoCal 2016, we want attendees to have the opportunity to get to know the talent who will be our “Trancegiving Tour Guides”. Each week, we will feature bio’s of four Dreamstate DJ’s as well as a set from one of their latest events or some recent releases so you can get to know them better. Next in our series is…. Photographer!
He is a master of all that is trance, a genius behind the decks, and seasoned in the studio. His unique sound and ability to dish out what the trance family craves has earned him fans from all over the globe. He has traveled far and wide hitting major festivals spanning the planet, including A State Of Trance (ASOT) Holland, Argentina, Belarus, & Future Sound Of Egypt (FSOE) celebrations in Australia & Argentina, Transmission Prague, Alda Events & Luminosity Events in Holland, Monday Bar Sweden, EDC Mexico, USC Events Seattle & Insomniac’s events, as well as many other shows in North America in cities such as LA, San Francisco, NYC, Chicago, Houston, Denver, Minneapolis, Toronto, and Vancouver. He is a seasoned veteran and he seems to have done it all in just the short 4 years he has been at the height of trance fame. Who is this man? None other than Photographer.
2012 was the year that Photographer caught his big break when his tracks “Airport” and “Tic Tac” received major accolades throughout the electronic dance music community. As time continued on, Photographer stayed consistent and true to what his fans were yearning for, releasing multiple #1 tracks like, “Find A Way” with Susana, his remix of one of Dash Berlin’s best pieces, “Shelter“, his remix of Armin Van Buuren’s “Who’s Afraid Of 138“, and most recently his new Monster Tunes track called “Atlas“. These days Photographer is still working as hard as ever. With releases on huge labels like Armada, Armind, WAO 138, Monster Tunes, and How Trance Works, he shows no signs of backing down. Need some more convincing? Check out his beloved radio show ‘SoundCasting’ on Digitally Imported and let him prove to you why he has earned his spot in our beloved trance scene.
Take a listen to one of my favorite remixes of all time, Aly & Fila – Laily (Photographer Remix) on YouTube:

In that moment, Photographer will be there to scoop us up and take us on the ride of our lives. An unadulterated trance adventure with Photographer as our guide! Trancegiving can’t get here fast enough!
