Glasgow based producers Gary Edgar and Stuart McLellan, better known as 2nd Phase, have been wreaking havoc with their music in 2016. The dynamic duo have forged a unique sound – a raw and exciting fusion of trance and hard techno – pushing boundaries and gaining a vast legion of new fans across the electronic dance music scene.
2016 has seen the unstoppable rise of 2nd Phase. Boasting releases on Outburst, Grotesque, Damaged and more – it’s no doubt this has been their strongest year yet. Four of their latest releases have stormed into the Beatport Top 10, including ‘Propel the Light’, ‘Love’, ‘Dark Matter’ and the massive ‘Hysteria’. Earlier singles in the year such as ‘Innervate’, ‘Short Circuit’ and ‘Agenda 21′, plus a plethora remixes for the likes of Richard Durand (‘Ricochet’), M.I.K.E. Push (‘Bound To Redshift 7′), Menno de Jong (‘Ahimsa’) and Mark Sherry & Paul Denton (‘Hostel’) have made the 2nd Phase name a near permanent fixture in playlists and the Beatport Top 20.
Their productions have found their way onto many leading compilation brands on Black Hole Recordings, Vandit, Perfecto and Ministry Of Sound. Additionally, repeat playlist support from the likes of Armin van Buuren on A State Of Trance Radio and Jordan Suckley on Damaged Radio mean new audiences are latching onto their exciting and energising sounds exponentially.
As DJs, their performances are as energising as their music, and 2016 has seen the duo spread their wings to take their exciting and in demand sounds to international audiences, including their summer Ibiza debut at Connect, Es Paradis. 2017 is already shaping up strong – the duo are set to take on leading trance brands including Luminosity Beach Festival and Trance Sanctuary, London.
Gary and Stuart continue to deliver a regular dose of 2nd Phase action on the airwaves once a month. Their monthly radio show ‘Control The Floor’ – which airs on the 4th Sunday of each month of Afterhours.FM – is rapidly gaining momentum with a growing fan base and show syndication.
Trance and techno is moving into a new phase in 2017 – 2nd Phase!
