GXD: Bustin’ Out

Daley Young and Matt Golledge make up London’s Trance and Progressive act GXD.  Busting out in emphatic fashion with their 2018 debut AVA release “A Dream” reaching #5 on Beatport’s Trance Chart. On the record, Young and Golledge brought in vocalist Elle Vee delivering the perfect moody accompaniment to the track’s huge synths and low-end tones. If you haven’t heard the track, take the time to do so. The buzz surrounding the debut single made the rounds in the community and within a very short time span an impressive list from Trance music’s elite influencers Armin van Buuren, Andrew Rayel, Andy Noor, Markus Schulz, Super8 & Tab, and Alexander Popov among others started throwing support behind the Beatport top 5 hit single. Currently they have three releases to their credit two through AVA Recordings and one through Amsterdam Trance. A new single via AVA Recordings is expected in May. Over the past year, Daley and Matt have hosted events from Europe to Los Angeles to Thailand, and was recently booked as a supporting act for Markus Schulz at Legendary Festival held on April 26. On May 10th GXD will be at London’s Ministry of Sound with Will Sparks, Maurice West and Pink Panda followed by an August 3, Trance Sanctuary & Friendz Sunset Boat Party appearance also in London. When it comes to Trance music, long-standing artists such as Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, W&W, Cosmic Gate and Swedish House Mafia as considered “Titans” of genre. There is no doubt.   These seminal artists have opened the doors and GXD are taking full advantage of the historical music canon on which to build their own sound and identity; Big, bold and brash music that is club and festival primed. With a new single on AVA Recordings on the way and riding the success of their previous 2018 releases, it can be easily said that big things from this new Trance duo under the moniker GXD will be forthcoming in the future and the expectations will undoubtedly be high, indicated by the high standards they’ve already demonstrated during the last year. Watch ‘em.
