Menno de Jong has grown up with dance music as a central focus in his life. And since falling in love with trance, he has stayed faithful to the soaring melodies that first drew him in. His tireless devotion to the genre is an inspiration to the worldwide Trance Family, as well as the artists he has signed to the legendary In Trance We Trust imprint, a label he once idolized and where he currently serves as an A&R manager. After more than 20 years as a champion of dance music, his career has come full circle.
Ahead of his appearance at Dreamstate San Francisco, we chatted with Menno about his ongoing inspiration throughout the years and how he thinks Dreamstate is energizing a whole new generation of trance enthusiasts. Plus, he kicked down a stacked exclusive playlist to help you drift into a Dreamstate of mind.
