We sat down with Andrew Rayel before his performance for short interview.
It never worked out as I planned. There’s always too many things to do and there’s never enough time to do all the things that I have in my mind. Definitely some of the things were planned or done really well. Like second studio album “Moments”, was a great success. Worldwide tours sold out so many shows.
The record label, which took a lot of time to plan and start, but it finally got launched September last year. Since then, we’ve been killing it with pretty much every single. I’m very happy about 2017. I think this year (2018) is going to be better because a lot of the things are settle down. Everything is rolling faster now, so there is even more music coming from me and from my label.
You premiered “Trance Reborn”, a collaboration with David Gravell. Can you tell us the process?
We actually wrote the song long time ago. I mean, it’s been last summer while I was touring in US with the “Moments” tour. It was finally for the first time, a really proper plan tour. Three months in USA. Three months in Europe. Two months in Asia.
For those 3 months in USA, I rented a place to stay between tours. When David Gravell came for the shows and stayed at my place, we’re just chilling for few days and decided to do something. We made this track in pretty much two days, almost the whole thing.
We started to think what should we do with it and when to release it. Then I saw that we were approaching episode 100 of Find Your Harmony. It was like perfect match, let’s make it the anthem. It sounds like something very euphoric and melodic. Something that can represent the anthem for the radio show. We’ve done it and it’s actually release today (this interview took place on 9 March 2018 – ed), few hours earlier. Now everyone can have it.
This is your third time came to Colosseum Club. What is so special about this place so you keep coming back?
Oh man, the venue is incredible. The production is incredible. The fans are amazing. I heard that I’ve set a record here, the last time I was here, that so far nobody broke in terms of how many people in the club. I didn’t even know that and just found out recently. That was crazy. Only facts like that make me want to do more and more, and comeback to the place that I really like and enjoy. The fans also like it as well.
Last question. Three words about Andrew Rayel!
Energetic. Euphoric. Melodic.
The performance Andrew Rayel brought that night really described those three words. With his energetic actions behind DJ booth, he kept the mood of the crowd in high level. His set also made people dance and sing along together. Jakarta became the witness of the first time Andrew Rayel dropped “Trance Reborn” after its initial release few hours earlier.
We hope to see Andrew Rayel in the future with more music to come.
