Bluespark – Trance Action. Started in 2008, and with over 300 episodes, Trance Action is one of the oldest and well-known Italian Trance radio shows ever. The DJ owner is Bluespark, and though nowadays there are many radio shows copied with this name, this one remains the FIRST and ORIGINAL. Focused mainly on uplifting and energetic style. Trance Action with Bluespark proposes his favourite trance tunes, together with story tracks, always searching for something different than the usual trance sounds. It’s not by chance when it happens that often you will hear a track never played on the other radio shows.
Bluespark (real name: Salvatore) was Born in 1981. Grew up in Grugliasco, a small town on the outskirt of Turin, one of the biggest cities in Northern Italy, he started to enjoy to dance music, for which begins to feel a real passion when he was 13.
In 1995 he discovered the progressive scene, which is a musical genre in Italy containing trance and techno music together. He was especially attracted to trance music, electronic sound from the 80s, composed with fast and acid sounds, often with harmonic melodies.
With the fall in popularity of the Italian progressive music in the dawn of 2000, and the overpowering appearance of house music in the Italian clubs and on radio, he continued to listen to Italian commercial-dance. Bluespark had a phase where, because of the lack of appreciation of trance music in his country, he shifted to harder sounds such as Hardstyle and Techno old style, the latter is in the process of disappearing.
In 2003 he realised one of his dreams when he started DJ’ing, playing Hardstyle and Hard Trance.
In 2004, with the end of the real Italian dance scene, electro and house sounds took over (the new commercial dance), to which he was almost forced to embrace, and in a “crisis phase”, there was at last a shift to trance music, returning to his first and old love definitively. This new breeze convinced him to become a DJ with more passion and commitment.
Over these 12 years, he achieved many goals including the final stage of “Luminosity before The Energy” DJ contest in 2009, played at many important event in Italy such as Trance Gate, as resident DJ of Turin Trance Movement, (a trance DJ’s group in his town), and at gigs abroad in Netherlands, France, Switzerland and Croatia, and recently in many famous trance radio events.
He currently plays in several radio shows, owner or as resident, but Trance Action is his own and the most important. Bluespark is mainly focused now on musical production, where he will soon release some of his own projects and collaborations.
