In recent memory, Ruben de Ronde has become known for his ability to hop multiple different subsets of the trance world. He has also been able to infuse classic trance with progressive tracks while also throwing in more chill, downtempo feels. It has allowed Ruben to approach different styles of music within the Trance world. In a time for EDM when it seems our favorite DJs are all gravitating towards heavy bass and Pop Drop, it is refreshing to see some staying true to their sound while at the same time manipulating within.
Even if you yet know Rodg by name, odds are you have grown accustomed to his production. His tune ‘Jacqueline’ reached the coveted #1 position on the Beatport Chillout Charts, a position he earned with the songs outstanding build. Working his way up the old fashioned way, Rodg has seen heavy support from Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Above & Beyond, Max Graham, Markus Schulz, Ruben de Ronde, and the whole gamut of top-tier performers.
When you add Patrick Baker, the production turns from great to irresistible. What I love most about Trance track is the sound manipulation and seamless ability to affect your movements. “Forever Searching” does just that. With a jumpy up-tone and powerful, deep baseline, a Big Room feel accompanies their token Trance Sound. After signing on with Armada, Ultra Music, and CAA, Baker hit the road in support of the co-headlined Goldroom and Autograf tour. With a dynamic show combining live and electronic elements, he found himself sharing a diverse range of stages.
With ‘TogetheRR’ done in conjunction with Rodg, the two Dutchmen form a twister with their signature sounds and churn out sixteen records that set the bar insanely high. Tranceheads of the world have been highly anticipating this since Ronde and Rodg’s b2b sets on A State of Trance 800 Utracht, @ Hi Ibiza, Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival.
Composed of stellar originals and head-turning collaborations with the likes of Ben Gold, Genix, Hal Stucker, Orjan Nilsen, Patrick Baker and more, the album is not just a testament to their game-changing production skill, but also to their ever-positive can-do attitude. ‘TogetheRR’ is not just an album from two excellent artists. It’s a synergistic body of work that unites worlds. ‘TogetheRR’ is where two great minds collide. ‘TogetheRR’ is where it all comes full circle.
The three join forces on this track and deliver and abosulte masterpiece!
