EVENT PREVIEW: Frequency ft. Sam Jones and Paul Denton @ Nest – 24-03-18


March has proved a huge month for trance in Toronto, and the new team at Rapture is helping close out the month with their event Frequency on March 24, 2018 at Nest. They’re entering the scene with a bang, as they are bringing not one, but two debuts to bless our ears and our hearts: Paul Denton and Sam Jones. Both Tech Trance masters in their own right, this event will surely be poppin’ from start to finish. I personally love Tech Trance, so this night will be extra special for me.

Paul Denton is relatively new to the Trance scene, but boy is he making a splash. He has graced some of the biggest Trance labels, such as such as Subculture, Kearnage, FSOE, Outburst, Grotesque, In Trance We Trust, and Afterdark. This will be his North American debut, and I count Toronto lucky for being the city to welcome him. He’s had a whopping a total of seven songs in the Beatport Top 10 in the last 12 months, which speaks volumes. We caught up with him for an exclusive interview recently, check it out here! Meanwhile, listen to one of his live recorded sets below to get pumped!

Sam Jones is a force to reckon with – his high energy sets rock the dancefloor with the sounds of Tech Trance and uplifting intervals. Based in Swansea, he has become known worldwide, playing at major Trance festivals. For some exclusive information from the man himself, check out our recent interview with him here. While you’re patiently awaiting his debut, catch his preview for this event below!

Supporting this event is none other than Deecee, the Toronto powerhouse we all know and love. I’m sure he needs no introduction at this point, as we consistently see him open/close for Electric Escape events. He always seems to know what the crowd wants to hear, and I know I can count on him to deliver an uplifting, high-energy set including a bunch of fun-to-sing-along-to songs. Always a pleasure seeing him spin, and this night will be no different!

Last but not least, Gattai will also be supporting this event. This concept is the brainchild of Toronto DJs Davide Ferrara and FraktL, who are Rapture’s co-founders. I hear whispers that these guys will be the Rapture resident DJs, so I am looking forward to seeing what they have to offer. Listen to their exclusive set for this event below. 

This event opens it’s doors at 10PM on March 24 at Nest. The event team just did everybody a solid and lowered tickets back down to pre-sale prices – $25 plus fees – get them here. This is a steal for two major Toronto debuts, people! Ya’ll are crazy if you miss out on this event. I will be there for the entirety of the event, likely with my light whip in hand. Say hi if you see me, and have a blast listening to some of the best names in Trance!

She lives and swears by Giuseppe Ottaviani’s mantra “trance is music with a soul,” although lately she has been exploring the sounds of techno and bass house as well. She’s always looking for more people to tear it up with at events, so say hi if you see her around!
