Petri Alanko, also known as Lowland, began his journey in the music industry back in 2006, finding his own sound at Helsinki’s beloved Club Unity. At the tenth anniversary of the venue, he decided to play up his sound with orchestral backings, which got recognition from Dutch DJ/producer Armin van Buuren!
This resulted in two “Classical Trancelations” albums. Thirteen years later, the third version is finally here!
According to Petri Alanko, “I’ve always wanted to begin writing something with the words “and so it was about as big as it could possibly become”. We did it about as big as we possibly could fit on the gigantic stage, in Helsinki Arena on September 29, 2018. To this day, I still can’t tell the exact number of the musicians on stage, but it was well over 130 at some point. With each minute, the sound assembled into a more coherent soundscape. Out of small individual things came this one large mass of sound that brought joy and love back to the people. Small things became something wonderful. I am beyond proud of how to Classical Trancelations concert panned out, and with the release of the ‘Classical Trancelations 3’ album, we aim to inspire even more people than the thousands that joined us in Helsinki for one hell of a ride. It was about as big as it could possibly become.”
