In a professional music career entering its 12th year, some artists would be happily resting on their laurels, sticking to a tried and tested sound. But that’s never been an option for Andy Perring (aka Pulser) in either the studio or the DJ booth.
Pulser's ever-evolving production and DJ style has stayed current since his early days of Cloudwalking, My Religion, Spiritualised (Olmec Heads) and Open Our Eyes (Insigma). However, he still always manages to go his own unique way, challenging the status quo and delivering the alternative sound in trance. The forthcoming debut Pulser album showcases his talents in spectacular fashion: it effortlessly encompasses everything from tech-house and synthpop beats to uplifting trance, yet still retainshis inimitable sound that sends endorphins into overdrive.
2010 was not just a comeback year for Pulser: it was also one of his busiest ever. Working endless hours in the studio amassing the multitude of productions that will make-up his debut artist album, remixing for the likes of Lange, Airbase, Blacktzar and others, and not to mention running his own monthly club night (Elements at Riga superclub Essential) - you could say Pulser really has hit all the bases, not just restabilising his musical credentials in a vastly different and evolved EDM scene but also becoming a successful club promoter.
With his Elements residency already the most successful monthly trance event in the Baltics, Pulser has reached new heights as a DJ delivering everything from the deepest, darkest tech-trance warm-ups to peaktime, roof-raising headline sets alongside his guests Lange, Ashley Wallbridge, Mike Koglin, The Thrillseekers and a host of up-and-coming local talent. At only 7 months old, Elements has proven to be a massive success in the Latvian capital Riga where he re-located to in 2009.
2010 really kicked-off big with the release of 'Broken Universe' on Gareth Emery's Garuda records. Massive DJ support , many weeks in the Beatport top100 and Pulser’s return to the UK for a memorable Garuda Artists DJ set at the worlds best club Sankeys in Manchester was the perfect way to announce the return of a trance tour de force.
He followed that up with his hugely successful ‘naughty remix’ of Sasha & Emerson's - Scorchio which saw plays from DJ's across the board including support from Judge Jules on his BBC Radio 1 show. Moving forward we saw the debut single Sunstorm from a new project Luminal which saw a Pulser release on Ferry Corsten's Flashover imprint for the first time and this December see's his second Garuda release 'In My World', a track which is already causing waves across the trance world.
In My World is radically different to what came before from Pulser yet has still managed to hit the mark with DJs and clubbers alike and with Armin Van Burren playing it on his A State Of Trance radio show (#484) it keeps up a 100% support record for Pulser singles from the World's #1 DJ.
It's no wonder then that the buzz surrounding Pulser is getting louder and louder! With the release of more bigfloor singles and the imminent arrival of his debut long player, a return to top-flight international DJing, a wealth of new online media about to hit, a rapidly expanding and successful club night, the return of another legendary alias ‘Insigma’ and some very big remixes to come, Pulser’s star is certainly rising again!
