Space Corps

With a launch date at EDC Las Vegas’ quantumVALLEY stage in just a few short weeks, Space Corps is already preparing to take us all on a trip to the cosmos.

It’s almost time for headliners to return to their home away from home at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for a weekend full of epic beats under the electric sky. As many continue to scour the EDC Las Vegas lineup and take in the sounds of artists both new and old who are playing this year, one name that seems to have continually popped up has been Space Corps.

Now that the lineups by stage have been released we know that Space Corps will be taking the stage at the quantumVALLEY, so expect a heavy dose of trance vibes that will take you beyond the stars. What exactly is in store from the set, we don’t know, but if any of the current information we’ve gathered is any indication then this performance is looking to be quite an interesting one.

So… Who is Space Corps?

The short answer is that we’re not sure who Space Corps actually is, but it’s clear that there is some impressive backing for the artist. Thinking how hard it would be for a brand new artist to get booked at EDC Las Vegas, let alone a major stage like quantumVALLEY, led us to dig a bit and find out as much as possible.

We know that there have been not one, but two songs from Space Corps premiered by Armin van Buuren on his renowned radio broadcast A State of Trance. Aptly named “Together” and “Gravity”, these two tracks both carry powerful trance sounds that boom from our speakers. “Gravity” also sees Space Corps work with Karra for some serene vocals that add an extra layer of bliss to the tune.

And of course, Space Corps is all about space.

The imagery that is used throughout all of the social media platforms that seemingly popped up overnight shows celestial bodies and realistic elements of space exploration. While an email sign-up for more info is available on the Space Corps website, but nothing has been sent to my address yet.

Minimal information can be found on different social platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Upon taking a closer look at the Instagram page, though, there seems to be a “code” for their members to follow. It reads:

  • To take Mankind further
  • To preserve humanity and its heritage
  • To discover new worlds and new life
  • To promote peace in the Universe

We expect this set to be full of jaw-dropping imagery, and perhaps even something akin to the style of show that other artists like GAIA or Gouryella have performed at past festivals. If you love trance then this is definitely a set you won’t want to miss this year at EDCLV.
