February has just promised to be one of the most phenomenal months of the year with the announcing of Cosmic Gate’s “Wake Your Mind South Africa Tour” landing in Cape Town on the 8th February and moving over to Johannesburg the following night. The German trance duo, Bossi and Nic Chagall are back in SA after their previous sold out tour in April 2012, accompanied by leading vocalist Emma Hewitt, ready to give all Electronic Dance Music fans an electrifying night of bass blasting trance tracks that will have them dancing the night out.
Having met out of pure chance in a record label office, the duo have proved to be one of electronic dance music’s most successful and most enduring partnerships creating a perfect in-studio/behind-the-decks storm. Ten years into their career they became the highest-climbers on DJ Mag’s 2009 Top 100 chart, appeared in DJ Mag’s list of Top 100 spinners for eight consecutive years and landed amongst the biggest DJs in the world.
Australian songstress Emma Hewitt’s distinctive style and lyrics have earned her a legion of passionate fans around the world and placed her as one of the most recognisable voices in the EDM industry. Having earned herself numerous accolades including #1 Vocalist Of 2012 by Bearmedia UK, #2 on the illustrious A State of Trance Annual Countdown and an International Dance Music Award (Best Euro/HiNRG Track) at the 2010 Winter Music Conference in Miami, Emma is at the top of her game.
Supporting Cosmic Gate is Ørjan Nilsen for his first ever SA performance. This Norwegian prodigy has been collaborating with major names such as Armin van Buuren and Leon Boiler, and in 2012 received a nomination for an International Dance Music Award for Best Break-Through DJ confirmed by his tremendous rise to #32 in the DJ Mag Top 100. His catchy melodies and chunky energetic tracks have seen him steadily grow into a world phenomenon.
Joining this grand line-up at both shows is SA’s very own DJ Fresh. The “Big Dawg” is one of SA’s top house DJs and is sure to get this partying starting from the first beat.
