Avatar Theme whaaat?!?!?!! More in a minute… first read this…

Cosmic Gate are the reason a lot of us started listening to EDM in the first place. Their 2000 hit ‘Exploration of Space’ took the sound from ‘Sandstorm’ and made it good. Made it epic. Made it trance.*sigh* Great memories. And the best part about the great memories of Cosmic Gate??? They’re creating fresh ones every single day. If 2000 marked the release of Exploration, and 2009 was their busiest year to date, what does that tell you? Their 2009 ‘Sign of the Times’ album required release parties for multiple cities on nearly every continent. It was that huge.

2010 is shaping up to be just as busy as last year. With a compilation and 2 tracks already out, CG has been touring, touring and you guessed it, touring. Oh, did we mention that one of those tracks was the remix of the Avatar Theme?!?!?!? Let’s just repeat that. COSMIC GATE REMIXED AVATAR.

if you want to hear it just click the music tab. Saturday is going to be straight BANANAS!!! {tab=Bio}
Over 10 boundary-pushing years, Nic Chagall and Bossi have evolved Cosmic Gate into one of the most creative and highly-sought-after electronic music acts in the world. Revered uber-producers, their musical acumen has seen them become long-term favourites of the trance’s Big 5 DJs with their 4 hugely-received albums transporting anthems like ‘Body of Conflict’, ,Not Enough Time‘, ‘I Feel Wonderful’, ,F.A.V.‘, ‘Analog Feel’, or the classics ‘Exploration of Space’ and Fire Wire to the dancefloor. As DJs, their kinetic, blood-pumping live performances are seen by hundreds of thousands of club and festival goers annually. Playing a 100 nights every year, it’s this ever-visible club presence that saw them reach their highest position to-date on the DJ Mag Top 100, landing as highest climbers at No.19 in 2009.

Following a chance meeting at a label office in Cologne in late 1998, the pair collaborated for the first time. It’s a production partnership that has become one of the dance world’s most successful and memorable. In their homeland of Germany, they’ve maintained a consistent level of chart success, with no fewer than 7 Top 40 singles to their name and a Top 10 hit in the UK in 2001, with the quintessential club hit, Fire Wire. Drawing on a broad-range of their individual musical tastes and influences, they’ve continued to advance and enhance the sound… Following up the long-players ‘Rythm & Drums’ and ‘No More Sleep’, in 2006 they released ‘Earth Mover’, which saw a seismic shift towards a more melodic and electronically orientated music. Including the club hits ‘Analog Feel’, ‘Should Have Known’ and ‘I Feel Wonderful’, the long-player was IDMA nominated for Best Album of 2007 and was latterly seen as a new ‘year one’ for Cosmic Gate.

In 2009 Nic and Bossi released their fourth studio album ‘Sign of the Times’, which contains 11 floor-monsters, last year’s vocal anthem ‘Body of Conflict’ and the smash single ‘Not Enough Time’, which in the words of Tiësto is “a great and solid vocal trancer that touches all your musical senses!” And in the broader scale on ‘Sign of the Times’ Armin van Buuren says “The new Cosmic Gate album is one of the most anticipated releases of this year. They are on the forefront of the dance music sound of the moment… Bring on 2009!”

Deck-side Nic and Bossi have whipped floors into frenzies all the way around the world. In 2009 they played the ,How Sweet It Is‘ and ,Electronic Daisy Carnival‘ in LA, rocked roofs at the Judgement Sunday nights and decisively broke into the US and Australian clubbing scenes through a string of sell-out tours, like the ,Sign Of The Times‘ Album Tour with 14 shows in a row in North America and the Godskitchen Tour through Australia in the amazing ,Boombox‘. They appeared in the DJ Magazine’s list of Top 100 spinners for 7 years now and are regular festival attraction, spinning at events like Trance Energy and Mysteryland in The Netherlands, Summadayze in Australia, Germany’s Nature One and Stateside at Nocturnal.

Back2Back, Cosmic Gate’s on-going compilation series was devised as the at-home testament to the pair’s club-rocking exploits. In 2010 Cosmic Gate are set to release the 4th volume through Tiësto’s Black Hole label. The compilations bring the evocative mix of trance, progressive and electro and stands apart through their use of numerous at-the-time unreleased productions and unique Cosmic Gate edits.

Over their production lifetime, the Cosmic Gate remixes have become almost as fêted as their productions. Essentially a blow by blow of trance music’s A-list, Nic and Bossi lent their studio know-how to productions by the likes of Tiësto, Ferry Corsten, Above & Beyond’s OceanLab project, Paul Van Dyk, Deadmau5, Rank 1 and Blank & Jones. Most recently they rewired John O‘Callagan‘s ‘Find Yourself’ to devastating effect, put their hands on Armin van Buurens ,Rain‘ and created two highly-praised remixes of ‘Vincent De Moor – Fly Away’ and ‘Veracocha – Carte Blanche’.
