Not just the opening to another dimension formed when four leylines converge (OK, we made that up), Cosmic Gate is also the German trance duo of Nic Chagall and DJ Bossi. Following in the footsteps of other big international players like Above & Beyond, they've mixed the latest double CD compilation in Ministry of Sound's 'Trance Nation' series (out now and available here).
Packed with plenty of their own productions, including Adam Beyer collaboration 'Nothing Lasts Forever' (not even cold November rain as Guns N' Roses rightly pointed out) and exclusive track 'Crushed', there are also equally large contributions from the likes of Mat Zo, Sander Van Doorn, Gareth Emery and Marcel Woods.
Give that last year they released their fifth studio album 'Wake Your Mind', set about conquering America and recorded a debut Essential Mix, it's sure to open a lot more doors – and possibly gates – this year.
We have a very special competition for five people to not only win a signed copy of the album (standard) but also a pair of tickets each to meet and greet the guys at their pre-party at Ministry of Sound, London, on 9th March, help choose which Cosmic Gate classics get played there, then get VIP entry into the club afterwards! The party will also be filmed and streamed live via MOS radio.
To enter simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the words 'Cosmic Gate' in the subject line and your full name, a contact number and answer to the following question in the body text:
What is on the other side of the Cosmic Gate?
We'll pick and contact five winners by 7th March.
