2004 was the year that the two old friends, Andreas and Denisdecided to hit the studio together and have some fun. After a couple of days the first tune was made and they were really happy with the result of it. They now decided to make some more tunes together and this is when "Gaudium" was born. Gaudium is the latin word for satisfaction and that's basicly what music should be in the ears.
Both Andreas and Denis have been involved in several music projects before they decided to start producing together. In the end of 2004 the Swedish label Spiral Trax heard a track by Gaudium that really caught their attention. That track was the start of the first Gaudium album. The album "Nordic Nature" was released during the summer 2005 and received great reviews by fans and critics all over the world, some claiming it as the best progressive release of the year.
Over a one year period after the album release a very productive time followed with new tracks and releases on labels like Flow, Plusquam, Sinn-Tech and Yellow Sunshine Explosion. Also remixes on artists like Ace Ventura, Sensifeel, Visua and Symphonix were made.
The music Gaudium creats can be described as progressive psy trance with flavours of both house and techno that attracts an audience that is used to the sounds of Spiral Trax, Iboga and Digital Structures as well as the crowd that are more familiar to harder progressive house in the style of Marc O’Tool and Krüger & Coyle.
After the sad news of the los of Spiraltrax label group in 2006 Gaudium went back in the studio focusing not to go down with the ship. A new album started to take shape and a record deal with the highly respected Danish label Iboga was made.
Gaudium is a name you will hear a lot from in the future. New remixes, performances around the world and fresh material produced for the second album will be presented. Stay tuned and make sure not to miss any of it :)
Gaudium delivers progressive psytrance in its purest form with something unique and with special feelings, which is hard to explain in words. They will take you on a unique musical journey with magical atmosphere, pumping baseline together with cool effects and floating acid lines. Suitable for almost every hour of the day and the ability to work in a club as well as at open air festivals. Gaudium live is something really special with a very rewarding journey for the crowd!
