Musicians are a funny sort. You have some who are influenced by various genres and are not very original, or once in a while, someone comes along with a style all their own. Bashar Deeb has been stretching the imagination of trance for over 13 years. Bashar’s background is an interesting one. He comes from a war torn part of Israel where he has experienced death in ways he prefers not to remember. But out of despair comes a sound of immeasurable light and hope. I, whom am not really familiar with trance, have heard some techno, but have never been too impressed. I am accustomed to Classical, New age and Film Scores. So when I had my first real experience with trance, it was just that. I was entranced, captivated and taken to place where my spirit followed.
When asked to describe the color of his music, music that has captured the hearts of thousands in his hometown, Deeb said, “Trance is very emotional and euphoric, it most definitely reminds many people of several points in their life, and it perhaps is the most emotional genre in electronic music. Many people think Trance is just a banging beat. However, Trance music is masterfully composed from live instruments and is not computer generated. Only the mastering and the output are generated through the computer.”
Trance had a very promising start in the early 1990’s in Europe, and is currently one of the most promising and influential music genres on the music scene. Now, Trance is becoming more popular in the United States, thanks to a growing talent pool of trance music DJ’s and producers.
Bashar’s first gig in Buffalo is sure to be a crowd pleaser in more ways than one, with a show that will play out for four and half hours without any breaks in between. That’s almost as long as a plane ride to Vegas. This trip will be one you won’t soon forget. I’m fairly confident that once you’ve boarded, you’re going to want Bashar to be your getaway destination.
Bashar, who now calls Buffalo home, will be appearing outdoors at Templeton Landing on Saturday, August the 28th, from 8pm-12:30am. Show is free, cash bar. Hope to see you all there.
