It’s not uncommon for great things to happen by chance.
And the best stories o8en arise when least expected. That’s the case of Alex Sonata and TheRio. It’s late 2018 when, after supporting each other’s tracks for a while, they finally get in touch and decide to join forces on a collaboration. Then one collab became two, then three, and long story short a8er a year of naturally coming together, without even quite realizing it, they became a thing and so did their name. Topping one success with another they gained the attention of the trance elite from Gareth Emery to Cosmic Gate, from Above & Beyond to Sander van Doorn, from Markus Schulz to Paul Van Dyk just to name a few. Eventually, they managed to get in the good grace of the trance King himself Armin Van Buuren, getting to be a stable presence on his A State Of Trance label, radio show, and compilations.
