When it comes to the world of uplifting trance, the name on everyone’s lips is Australia’s own Factor B AKA

Brendan Blatt. In just 2 short years, his unique & classical styled productions have re-ignited trance purists

across the world in big numbers, quickly establishing himself as one of the most sought after names in trance.

It began with ‘Stratos Galaxias’ in late 2014 & quickly grew to a string of 5 x Beatport #1’s, a ‘Pure Trance’ mix

CD for Solarstone & an elite tour schedule across the globe at some of the world’s biggest festivals and club

events such as Tomorrowland, A State of Trance, Dreamstate & Gatecrasher to name just a few.

The foreseeable future of #propertrance is no doubt in safe hands with Brendan taking on music full time as well

as migrating from Australia to Amsterdam to keep up with growing demand for his live shows.

Brendan’s music began gaining attention from mid-2014 when his tune ‘Stratos Galaxias’ was picked up by UK

trance duo ‘Neptune Project’. Neptune Project loved the track so much, they released the track on their own

label ‘Mythology Records’ in 2015 – gaining support from the likes of John O’Callaghan, Sneijder, Solarstone,

Ferry Tayle just to name a few, but none more than Bryan Kearney – who hammered it in his major sets

throughout the world, including his ASOT 650 stadium tour in Australia.

2015 saw Brendan sign his first tune with UK trance legend Solarstone on the famed Pure Trance label. His tune

‘Sacrosanct’ was a massive hit – with support from just about every major uplifting trance artist in the world it

was no surprise when it reached #2 on the Beatport trance charts.

Brendan then swiftly backed this up with his next single being signed by Egyptian duo Aly & Fila on arguably the

world’s biggest trance label ‘Future Sound of Egypt’.. and it didn’t disappoint. Aly & Fila kept “Factor B - We Rise

Again” to themselves for over 3 months – before unleashing it exclusively on their infamous ‘Essential Mix’ on

BBC’s Radio One with Pete Tong.

Since then Brendan's released a new single release on Pure Trance (Sapera) - a remix for Giuseppe Ottaviani

(North Pole) all of which have featured on the play lists of the biggest artists in the world. Not to mention his

recent remix of the classic 'Synaesthesia' by the Thrillseekers - which has been hammered worldwide by Armin,

Thrillseekers himself & Aly & Fila just to name a few.

2016 saw Brendan raise the bar once again, by releasing several outstanding and unique trance anthems,

including ‘Sapera’ & 'Endless' on Pure Trance but none larger than 'Luna Therapy' on FSOE - which was

championed by JOC & Aly & Fila world wide for months at some of the world's biggest events before it made its

way to #1 on the Beatport trance charts.

This was followed up early in 2017 with ‘Something Like a Cure’ again FSOE. ‘Something like a cure’ shot to #1

on the charts after worldwide support again from the big artists & featured at events such as ASOT 800,

Transmission amongst others. Shortly after Brendan’s remix of Robert Nickson’s Every Sun featuring Cat Martin

was debuted at Ultra Miami, quickly after it too hit #1 on the beatport trance charts, completing the trilogy of #1’s.

But he wasn’t done there, 2 months later, Brendan’s collab “Origins” with “The Noble Six” - again quickly made

it’s way to #1 on the charts, completing 4 x #1’s in a row.

Within 6 months, Brendan’s tour schedule exploded, featuring high profile gigs at Tomorrowland, A State of

Trance, Luminosity Beach Festival, Manderine Club Argentina, Pure Trance, Dreamstate USA,

Dreamstate Australia, FSOE Club nights worldwide, Gatecrasher Sheffield, Gatecrasher tour of

Australia/Asia, 2 shows at ADE 2017 and various headlining shows across Europe, the USA & the UK.

To round out 2017 - Brendan has been asked to mix disc 3 of Solarstone’s prestigious ‘Pure Trance’ CD

compilation alongside Solarstone & Robert Nickson. Pure Trance 6 see’s Brendan join a short but highly

distinctive list of elite trance artists who have been given the opportunity to mix a disc on Solarstone’s CD series.

Brendan’s music is clearly stirring up something special the international trance scene; his unique, euphoric

uplifting style is re invigorating and igniting the trance purist’s across the world in big numbers. 2018 will see a

number of exciting new originals and remixes hit the airwaves across Pure Trance, FSOE & Armada that are all

sure to be chart toppers once again!

Stay tuned to see what this talented young professional has in store for 2018.
