After almost a decade away from each other, lifetime friends Craig Hughes and Alan Ballantine became reunited through their passion for dance music.
Ballantine has co-promoted the iNViTE club night in Monaghan for over two years and quickly welcomed Hughes to join the iNViTE team as a resident DJ in 2008. Both long-standing enthusiastic DJs with a sound that is an infusion of all things trance the two decided to focus more on the production side of the scene.
With no previous knowledge or guidance the two learned everything from the basics to the more technical aspects over a period of 12 months leaning on some of the more experienced Irish producers for feedback.
With a number of releases on various labels including Discover Dark, Unearthed Records, Defcon, Redbox Records & Dirt,Lies & Audio. The duo are currently busy working on remix work and new original tracks.
Also over the last 12 months they have gained support from some of the biggest names on the scene including Paul Oakenfold, John O'Callaghan, Indecent Noise, John Askew, Bjorn Akesson, Sly One & Jurrane, Gary Maguire, Neal Scarborough, Dave Pearce and many more.
Redbox Records presents; Aureal - 'Freefall', a very sweet uplifting and driving progressive Trance number, with a remix from top Irish boys Hughes & Ballantine, giving us a tough tech Trance mix!
