Mark Sixma

 

Trance music DJ/Producer Mark Sixma, aka M6, was born in Breda, Netherlands in 1983 and studied classical piano as a child. The name Breda derived from the convergence of two rivers, the Mark and the Aa. Breda as a result of its location, made it strategically important to the Holy Roman Empire, both politically and militarily. It is known for its stunning medieval castles and the Gothic cathedral, Church of Our Lady. It is also known for being the home of some of the top DJ/Producers on the planet, including,

  • Tiesto
  • Hardwell
  • W&W
  • R3hab

Mark recently gave an interview to EDMIDENTITY where he described his music as,

 

“I’ve always enjoyed multiple genres of music, electronic and otherwise. For instance, I listen to classical music quite a bit and that definitely inspired some of the more anthemic tracks I produced. For me combining different (sub)-genres in one track is always a creative challenge which I enjoy a lot! For instance, ‘Requiem’ combines a classical choir with EDM elements and trance music.”

 

Mark began his DJ career at 13 and in 2007 released ‘Destination 6,’ which became Tune of The Week on A State of Trance episode 322. Mark signed with Armada Music shortly after. In 2008, Mark released ‘Fade 2 Black,’ and it also became Tune of The Week on ASOT episode 353. These two tracks secured Mark’s place in the world of trance music.

In 2008, 2009, and 2010 Armin van Buuren chose three of Mark’s tracks released under the alias M6. They are respectively,

  • Amazon Dawn
  • Paradise Lost
  • Days of Wonder

In 2010 Armin van Buuren released his fourth album, Mirage. Mirage reached number 5 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart. Armin collaborated with Ferry Corsten on the track, ‘Minack,’ and allowed Mark to remix it in 2011.

Mark continued his success with releases on labels such as,

  • Armada
  • Armind
  • A State of Trance
  • Who’s Afraid of 138
  • Perfecto
  • Blackhole Recordings
  • Revealed
  • Mainstage Music
  • Vandit
  • Ultra
  • Spinnin Compilations
  • ArisaAudio
  • Metanoia Music

Mark has toured the globe with the biggest names in trance,  

  • Armin van Buuren
  • Ferry Corsten
  • Gareth Emery
  • Judge Jules
  • Markus Schulz
  • Paul van Dyk
  • Sander van Doorn
  • W&W

Mark has performed at several festivals including,

  • Stereosonic
  • A State of Trance 550 & 650
  • Nature One (two times)
  • Electronic Family
  • Escapade Music Festival
  • Ultra Music Festival Miami

In 2013, Mark released ‘Requiem,’ which became the most played trance track of the year. His three releases, ‘Character,’ ‘Refused,’ and ‘The Saga’ scored in six of Beatport’s Top 10 records. The other three were remixes of Orjan Nilsen’s ‘Mafioso,’ Cosmic Gate’s ‘Crushed,’ and Jorn van Deynhoven’s ‘New Horizon.’

Mark held the Beatport number one spot in 2014 for his remix of ‘Adagio For Strings.’ He lost his number one spot to himself, an uncommon accomplishment for sure, for ‘Falling Back,” which supplanted ‘Adagio For Strings.’

In 2015, Mark toured North America for the first time. He collaborated with Armin van Buuren for ‘Panta Rhei,’ which appeared to solidify his position in the trance music elite.

There are many reasons why Mark Sixma has continued success, but I’ll point out only two. First, he loves the journey of producing music. Second, he maintains an intimate relationship with his fans via social media.

His latest collaboration is with Emma Hewitt for ‘Missing’ by Everything But The Girl first released in 1994.

Trance & Progressive DJ/Producer Andy Moor

Posted on Updated on

Andy Moor
Moor Music 194

 

One of the most revered names in EDM is Andy Moor. He is a pioneer in the progressive trance scene, introducing vocal chops and syncopated bass lines. Two production techniques now commonly used by other trance music DJ/Producers.

 

He crafted his signature sound aptly described as,

 

“finely tuned, beautiful melodic soundscapes floating above prominent, clever basslines.”

 

His style of progressive trance is easily recognizable though not simple. He has remained at the forefront of an ever changing music scene and has remained loyal to his brand of progressive trance and to the fans who love his music. While many others succumb to the whims of a fickle public, Andy Moor has shown high integrity and loyalty to trance and trance music fans.

 

We can describe Andy Moor as a musical prodigy and an actual musician. He played his first perfect piano piece when he was five years old. By the time he reached the ripe old age of ten, he had learned six more instruments. Three years later, he spun his first record. By nineteen he signed his first label release, and by twenty-one, he was spinning to massive crowds of adoring fans.

 

Andy Moor combined his genetic musical ability, innate drive, integrity, and loyalty and became one of the biggest names in progressive trance both as a DJ and a producer. This perfect combination is why he will always be an icon in trance music.

 

Andy Moor’s productions catalog spans back to 1999, with ‘Explorer’ with the UK trance act, Tilt. He worked with Adam White as half of the duo, “Whiteroom” earning praise from Armin van Buuren and Above & Beyond as having the best trance production of 2004. His collaboration with Above & Beyond, “Air For Live,” was named ‘Tune of the Year’ by listeners of Armin van Buuren’s ‘A State of Trance’ radio show as well as ‘Best Underground Dance Track’ at Miami Winter Music Conference and ‘Best Trance Track’ in 2006.

 

Andy’s co production work as Leama & Moor, a UK melodic progressive house duo on remixes includes Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Nelly Furtado, Orbital, Starkid, Brian Eno, Paul Oakenfold, and Tiesto. Their cross genre sound made them the top-rated remix team of the time.

 

Andy’s collaboration with Somna and singer Amy Kirkpatrick in 2015, “One Thing About You,” marked the 100th release on Andy’s label, AVA Recordings. The track topped the Beatport Trance Chart and dominated dance floors globally.

 

Another 2015 success was Andy’s “All Gone,” released on Armin’s, ‘Who’s Afraid of 138!’ label. This collaborative effort included the uplifting trance master RAM and the sultry vocals of Christina Novelli.

Andy Moor, aka, Dub Disorder, Dwight van Man, and Sworn, has an impressive library of solo productions. Released on AVA/Armada, “Breaking the Silence Volume 1” is a beautiful compilation of melodic trance released in 2009. Volumes 2 and 3 followed in subsequent years. Andy Moor

 

“Zero Point One,” the highly acclaimed debut solo album by Andy Moor released in 2012, included artists Meredith Call Carrie Skipper, Sue McLaren, producers Orkidea and Ashley Wallbridge. A genre crossing symphonic journey of mysterious ambient, vocal melodies, melodic trance to break beats and the thick bass of progressive.

 

In September 2014 Andy Moor reunited with vocalist Betsie Larkin for yet another crowd-pleasing collaboration titled ‘Not Afraid’ following the massive success of their tune

 

Born of “Love Again” from Zero Point One, the timeless anthem, “Not Afraid” with vocalist Betsie Larkin was released in 2014. Andy found the perfect combination of uplifting vocals, euphoric melodies, and thick progressive bass lines.

Andy’s talent, hard work, and dedication to music have resulted in his productions, which in turn has lead to a loyal fan base spanning the globe. He has performed in such countries as Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Ukraine, China, Singapore, Russia, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Canada, the United States, as well as the UK.

 

On August 9, 2007, the Moor Music radio show began, and Episode 1  was released. Andy releases an episode on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month. “Less Talk, More Music” is the motto and he delivers the best in trance and progressive. June 23, 2015, marked the milestone Episode 150 with three hours of beautiful trance.

 

Andy founded AVA Recordings in early 2006 under the parent label Armada. The members include Andy Moor, Somna, Ashley Wallbridge, Tydi, Ben Nicky, David Forbes, Masoud, Jonathan Martin, Sunny Lax, and Joseph Areas. The label focuses on trance and progressive and nurturing new up and coming talent. The AVA Nubreed EP series focuses solely on new talent.
