Cosmic Gate DJ SET : EMI

Djs and producers Claus Terhoeven (Nic Chagall) and Stefan Bossems (DJ Bossi) met in 1997 while they were working on several releases with different projects for the X-IT Label in Cologne.

At that time, they both had some success with different projects, especially in the Benelux, including Me & Mr. Jones, John B. Norman, DJ Bossi and Strings of Harmony, just to name a few. Nic's Strings of Harmony reached the Top 20 position in the Dutch sales charts; while they did several remixes for well known acts like Sash, Dario G and NBG.

In November of 1998 they met by chance in a studio and decided to do a track together without any planning, the track was called "the Drums" and it was the first hard trance record ever to reach high chart positions in Germany during May of 1999, hence Cosmic Gate was born.

They had to quit their resident Dj jobs in two of Germany's biggest clubs to have enough time specifically dedicated to complete remixes for DJ Tiesto, Ferry Corsten, Rank1 and Blank + Jones, just to name a few. As major Dj gigs and several new productions rolled on, they became one of the most booked Djs in Germany and the world.

The follow up-singles "Mental Atmosphere" and "Somewhere over the rainbow / Fire /Wire" were even more successful then "The Drums", as they reached top selling positions in Germany and the U.K. (on Ministry of Sound recordings they reached # 9 in the English top 40 charts). In Germany even their first Album was a big success as it went to the top 30 position, which was a big success for a techno-trance album!!!

After many international gigs, remixes and releases, Cosmic Gate has shown that there is another German act that is ready to enter the top of the international charts.

In early summer 2002 their new single "The Truth" and album the "No More Sleep" will be released, and is expected to be the next big triumph for the guys, as the single went straight to number 1 in the German dance charts in the first week of release, and enters the charts at pos. 31!!!!

!!!!!! Tour dates for America are extremely limited!!!!!!

Available Dates: September: 20th--21st & September: 27th--28th

November: 15th--16th

DJ BOSSI (Cosmic Gate): EMI

Bossi started DJing at private parties at the age of 16 and as the years went on the parties got bigger. So, the age of 19, when he was playing at a big student party with about 3000 people when a club owner heard him playing and asked him to DJ at his club. At that point his career truly started to take shape. After finishing his studies in economics in 1997, Bossi decided to make his hobby a profession and he started working on his dj and producer career more seriously. As things started to happen; he was rather successful with his productions, so he was asked to remix tracks for such well known artists as Dario G and Sash; His own solo single Bossi "Time to make the floor burn", reached high chart positions in several European countries, and from that point on, he was asked to Dj all over the European continent.

The biggest success occurred in 1999; when he met his future partner Nic Chagall, and together they created the project "COSMIC GATE". The singles "The Drums", "Exploration of Space / Melt to the Ocean" reached peak positions all over Europe. Then Cosmic Gate singles were released worldwide and their single "Fire Wire" truly propelled the way for the next generation of German Trance stars.

Steve Helstrip is the 26 year-old UK based producer/DJ responsible for numerous high profile trance tunes under the guises THE THRILLSEEKERS, EN MOTION, INSIGMA and RAPID EYE. With releases on trailblazing labels including Neo, Incentive, VC and a long list of exceptional remixes under his belt, The Thrillseekers have created a real stir within the industry and international DJ fraternity with his unique trance sound.

What puts The Thrillseekers sound on a different level from so much of the "trance by-numbers" tunes banging around, is the subtle depth and texture of the compositions, combined with crystalline production values. Steve's most notable success was under the moniker "THE THRILLSEEKERS" when his track "SYNATHESIA," blew up in Ibiza and defined the trance sound that will last long into the 21st century.

Synaesthesia, originally composed and produced back in September '98 was rapturously received on DJ-only promo, and was caned by Oakenfold, Jules and Paul Van Dyk. Synaesthesia became the definitive tune of the summer on the White Island and an essential on all the big trance and club compilations of '99 including GATECRASHER WET, MINISTRY'S IBIZA ANNUAL, TRANCE NATION 2, CREAM DEPARTURES, IBIZA EUPHORIA and SLINKY amongst others.

Steve also works under the guises "RAPID EYE" with fellow producer and DJ, Tim Stark to produce a harder-edged trance sound, under the guise of "INSIGMA" with PULSER and as "EN-MOTION" on his own.

INSIGMA have been responsible for one of the most played tunes, "OPEN OUR EYES," with heavy support from Oakenfold and Tiesto which had led to the track being signed to VC with a release forthcoming in 2002.

EN-MOTION'S debut release "TRUTH" was released in 2000, on INCENTIVE and was also licensed to Trance Nation 4 which ultimately led onto numerous remix offers.

Steve has remixed under the above monikers, some of the tracks to receive to his magic include Timo Mass- Der Sheiber, Cequenza-Ciquenza, Orinoko-Island, Arimin Vs Tiesto - Eternity, Starparty- I'm In Love With You, Sonique- It Feels So Good and Chicane- Salt Water amongst numerous others.

Steve's is a seasoned International DJ after performing numerous gigs including Popkomm (Germany), Berlin Love Parade, Luners (Tokyo) and performed alongside Paul Van Dyk on Radio Einz (equivalent to The Essential Mix on Germany's Radio1.) Steve has already secured a regular slot alongside Tiesto and Ferry Costen on Ministry Of Sound Radio, and he is currently indemand for his DJ'ing skills after securing high profile gigs across the country.
