Freefall, the next Chapter ‘Australia” 100% born and bred down under but rapidly making more then a name overseas is all in a days work at Freefall HQ. Sell out events in Bali to over 3,000 people on debut and a record label that already has the likes of Marcus Schultz as a part of the fan base! Not bad at all some would say but that’s only the start. After hosting arenas at this years 2009 Trance Energy tour in Sydney & Perth now its Melbourne’s turn to join the ever growing Freefall fraternity. Fast becoming a brand associated with not doing things in halves were pulling not one but two rabbits out of the hat for this one!
Without further anticipation introducing man of the moment First State aka Sander Van Dien and his debut Australian performance alongside arguably one of Melbourne’s most requested trance imports Mr Mark Sherry and a extended set time not seen before on Victorian soil.
Sander van Dien (born in Dordrecht, NL in 1981) had early musical influences, primarily that of his father, who would play “moody” music. For years this inspired Sander, who took a keen interest and began to produce his very own interpretation of this music which influenced him, Which Sander describes as “Emotional music that touched the soul”.
With his enthusiasm for music, Sander attended lessons on a guitar which his father had given to him. Soon after, he traded in the strings and opted for keys.
