VMM Feature - ZiRENZ & The Cinematic Trance Movement (ZCTM)
Offshore Music Entertainment & Nu Communicate ZiRENZ the home of the ZiRENZ Cinematic Trance projects where they will be working with some of the brightest fresh Nu-talents in the world of trance building their Cinematic Trance vibe. Each release will reach for the highest quality and will bring together a perfect blend of classic euphoric trance cinematic film score and their unique crossover vocals bringing you the Cinematic Trance Sounds of ZiRENZ crossing from the dance floor to the cinematic screens.
So we asked ZiRENZ when did they conceive this concept for the Cinematic Trance movement and they said..
“ We have always loved Trance and Film score sound design and had an idea to combine the two together, so we had just finished working on a new EP that has tunes influenced by the movie “Memoirs of a Geisha” and other tracks on the EP where very Orchestral in form so we wanted a name to reflect the new music we were releasing and currently working on in the studio so we launched the EP as our first Cinematic Trance EP which is out now on Offshore Music Entertainment. With the creation of the EP we gained quick support from the music industry contacts for the Cinematic Trance sound and found that we had ignited a new genre to begin. We then set out with the help of our good friend Ben Alonzi to search for creative talented producers who we could work with and create the ZiRENZ Cinematic Trance movement which we are expanding every day giving new talented producers who have cinematic scope to their music a voice to be heard and we hope that this is the start to developing a new vibrant Trance sound that will take this beautiful uplifting Cinematic genre to the clubs and cinema screens across the globe”.
