Andrei Prylazhinski – aka Andrew Prylam, is a native of Belarus. His DJ career began in 2010 and his favorite style of music is Trance. Trance music is that kind of magical world, where you want to live eternally. It’s an indescribable feeling, you’re just floating and dissolving… Trance is the music which makes you explore yourself and revive. It’s pushing you forward, not standing still. It makes you go further despite everything… Go away from all of the talks and reproaches…Right to the sky… And there you are, walk and realize… That Trance is your whole life!!!

He has continuously developed his passion for that Orchestral, Uplifting, Tech and Progressive Trance sound.He first discovered his love of Trance music in 1998 from great producers like ATB, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyke and more.

“Trance is music that opens all boundaries, fills with joy, love and pure positive energy. This style of music takes you deeper into the unknown, makes you think and at the same time throw away all thoughts, free yourself from the environment, and then merge with it all into one. Once hitting the world of Trance, you can’t go back. And each time again and again you sink into this atmosphere of madness, where all the frames and principles are destroyed…
