“I believe music is a universal language that unites people with nothing but love. I intend to make sure that my tracks are all about emotions and happiness. That’s what’s driving music, making the world a better place.”

He’s the modern day Mozart, today’s leading talent in the ever-growing trance scene. He’s the pride of Moldova, known for his unique and very own sound. He is Andrei Rata, better known as Andrew Rayel.

Born on 21st July 1992, his young age never stopped him from taking the lead in the next generation of EDM producers. Developing strong musical skills, he studied orchestral music and kicked off his producing career at only 13 years of age. It didn’t take long for the passionate music lover to translate his ideas into sounds. He created a truly unique, significant sound, one of piano power, harmonic balance and euphoric tales.

And so, years later, his originals and remixes are praised by many and loved by more. But, rest assured, the Andrew Rayel story has only just started 😉

Often called “the new Armin van Buuren“, it’s no surprise that Andrew indeed found the support of the man himself. Having the number one DJ supporting his tracks on the world famous “A State of Trance” radio show has ever been a dream of Andrew. And sometimes, dreams come true. Needless to say, the trance scene embraced Andrew’s refreshing sound, giving him a very warm welcome.

His tracks found a solid home on the “A State of Trance” and Armind labels, both part of the Armada Music family. Impressed by his originals, it didn’t take long until the Rayel sound became hot property for remixes.

And so, Andrew was lucky enough to handle remix duties for tracks by Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, Tiësto, W&W, Zedd, Bobina, Tenishia, and many more.

Though his career only officially started when he was 17, by the time he turned 21, he was ranked #28 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs 2013. Let’s not forget that he was also the highest climber for that year. Man, he was going places and we all knew it.

In the same breath and the same year, Andrew announced that he was working on his first full-length album and that it would be released in 2014. Shortly after the announcement, he released his first official compilation, “Mystery of Aether”. And shortly after that, he went straight into working on a song for the A State of Trance 650 (ASOT650) Anthem contest. Oh, yes, he also went on tour with the highest of all celestial beings of trance, Armin van Buuren for “ASOT650: New Horizons”, of course.
