EVENT PREVIEW: True North Trance debuts in Toronto with a Solid Stone OTC 09-06-17


Look out Toronto Trancers, there is a new name in town. True North Trance, or TNT for short, have thrown their name into the Toronto Trance event production ring with an impressive debut event. Ladies and Gentlemen, on Friday June 9th, 2017, Populus will proudly host none other than Canada’s own – Solid Stone!

By now, Elias Barouche (aka Solid Stone) should be no stranger to the Trance faithful in this fair city, although his DJ career is still in its early days. He began to make a name for himself in 2010 with support from some of the biggest names in the scene when Markus Schulz and fellow Canadian Max Graham took a liking to the young Canadian musician. Coming from Montreal, this talented Producer’s progressive sounds took no time making waves in the Trance scene. He eventually became a household name on the Coldharbour Recordings label.

Solid Stone is known for his deep melodic progressive sound, similar to some of Max Graham’s productions according to my ear. His sound caught the attention of literally the biggest names in Trance, including Armin Van Buuren and Above and Beyond. Some of his biggest tracks include a remix of Ferry Corsten and Aruna’s song Live Forever. He also has a remix of Armin Van Buuren’s track with Sharon Den Adel, In and Out of Love, which is pretty sweet. It actually is released under his alias, Diversion. He has some lovely groovy numbers of his own, including Heart Call with Jennifer Rene as well as Understatement, and the recently released Tempted. He also has a radio show called Refresh Radio which recently celebrated it’s 150th episode. Check it out on his Soundcloud, which is posted in the links section below.

I remember the first time that I saw Solid Stone live. He was on the lineup for Toronto’s A State of Trance 750 event back on January 30th, 2016. Joining the likes of Ben Gold, Orjan Nilsen, Standerwick, Andrew Rayel and Armin Van Buuren, it was certainly a night to remember. Solid Stone was one of the best sets that night!

True North Trance have started off with a big debut, so be sure to come and support them as they certainly make a big splash for their first event. They also have their own radio show which has supported some of Toronto’s own local up-and-coming Trance DJs on ravenationradio.co.uk
