For the Electro/Progressive House fans there will be Dzeko & Torres at the Mansion Nightclub with DJ Cristangelo opening. Dzeko & Torress have been recently featured on Dancing Astronaut for one of their latest releases 'Hey!' which was also played during Steve Aoki's BBC 1 Essential Mix:
6 days ago they recently released an hour mix on Soundcloud:
Trance fans will have a very tough decision to make tonight as there are two solid options available. The first one hardly needs any introduction as Cosmic Gate are considered Trance legends and are returning to Ottawa for the first time since their last gig a year ago. DNA Presents are kicking off their 1 year anniversary celebration with Cosmic Gate at Barrymore's.
Christian Schweizer is a name that might not be known to some but he is one of the rising stars in the Trance world hailing from Argentina. He has been a personal favourite of mine because he has produced some great trance tracks that can destroy any dance floor. If you are looking to see a young up and coming Trance producer/DJ that takes you beyond the uplifting Trance style that you are used to then Chris Schweizer at Bijou Nightclub is your best bet for Friday night. DJ Charles will also be playing an extended warm up set from midnight to 3:00 am!
Listen to his latest hit 'Believe', which was recently featured on an ASOT broadcast. It is currently #10 in the Beatport Trance charts:
There is a third option for those more adventurous and ready to party Friday night: You can pick between Dzeko & Torres or Cosmic Gate for the first event and then head over to Bijou Nightclub for some after hours with Chris Schweizer!
The Bijou night is running late tonight with Chris Schweizer playing from 3:00 am until 5:00 am which gives you a rare opportunity to actually see two full events in Ottawa. Why not? I dare you to.
