George Acosta at Glo 4

As a general rule, the top trance DJs are all European. One of the few exceptions that proves the rule is Florida-based trance hero George Acosta. He may not have quite the same cultural cachet as Tiësto, Ferry Corsten or Sasha, but he is certainly capable of spinning the same highly ornamented, melodic, pumping cheese as his Euro counterparts. From slick, pretty and soaring to hard, banging and soulless, Acosta can work both ends of the trance spectrum. His fifteen years behind the decks have been captured on mix discs such as Ministry of Sound's Trance Nation America and Ultra Records' History of Trance, and he's got a slew of his own trancetastic productions out, including "The Reaper" and "Mellodrama." His sets have soundtracked everything from Berlin's Love Parade to our own Rave on the Rocks, and on Saturday, January 24, you can catch him at Glo 4, courtesy of Floorbangrs.
