Music magic

By Maria Gregoriou

Guaba beach bar in Limassol is getting really serious about the kind of top-notch DJs it hosts: this Sunday, DJ Andrew Rayel will be back on the island and playing that funky music at the beach bar from 10am all the way to 9pm.

Even though Rayel is in his early twenties, he is one of the biggest names on the DJ scene at the moment. He already rocked Cyprus twice last year in June and September when he showed Limassol how turning discs should be done.

If you didn’t manage to catch him last year, this is your chance to start your Sunday off with some electric vibes and groovy sounds, and continue it in much the same manner.

The DJ from Moldova has been called a modern-day Mozart (!) and the new Armin van Buuren, so it’s not surprising that he received support from the man himself – van Buuren, not Mozart – something that was a dream for the young DJ. A dream that came true when the No. 1 DJ supported his tracks on the famous radio show known as A State of Trance.

This support, and the support of other well-known DJs, may be the reason behind Rayel being voted number 77 on the DJ Mag Top 100 in 2012. The same magazine placed him at number 28 as the highest climber in 2013 and just last year he managed to climb up even higher to rank at number 24.

The young DJ has DJ’ed at the world’s most legendary clubs and massive festivals. From Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, Stereosonic, Global Gathering, Trancefusion, EDC Las Vegas, Trancemission and Ministry of Sound to multiple A State of Trance events, the A State of Trance Ibiza nights and the world-famous Monday Bar cruise.

Just like Michael Jackson, Rayel believes that the world can be made a better place as he believes that “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.’
