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… Avalon!
Leon Kane, also known as Avalon in the world of electronic dance music is a British Full-On psytrance and UK psychedelic producer and DJ. Beginning his career as a promoter he dove into the world of underground and warehouse parties in London. He found that there was an incredible lack of available DJ’s, so being the proactive man that he is, he decided to take the bull by the horns and learn how to DJ and produce music. Little did he know at the time but the stars were all in alignment for him. He was a natural and he had finally discovered his true purpose in the scene. Nano Records was the first to take advantage of his talent after label boss Regan and Psytrance pioneer DJ Tristan heard him play. Within only a few days after releasing ‘Avalanche’, his first EP on the label, he would become an official signed artist.
In 2010, Avalon’s debut solo album ‘Distant Future’ would drop, featuring 10 Full-On psytrance tracks and landing him the #1 spot on Beatport. In fact, every single track on the album made it into the top 10! In 2012, it was time for a remix album and so ‘The Remixes, Vol 1’ was born. This album would feature leading psytrance artists including Captain Hook, LOUD, Tristan, Burn In Noise and Future Frequency. Fast forward to 2016 and Avalon is one of the most sought after producers in the industry! His productions are intensely unique, insanely creative, and wildly energetic.Some even call him a psytrance pioneer with 5 Beatport psytrance #1 hits and 2 #1 selling albums.
