Allen & Envy:
English based power trance DJ/Producers...ALLEN & ENVY are the considered the biggest new uplifting trance duo on the planet right now! The pair are following in the footsteps of past UK duo dominators like Agnelli & Nelson, Riley & Durrant, Hemstock & Jennings, Smith & Pledger, Transa, Coast 2 Coast etc by picking up support from the trance elite and really bringing that classic trance feeling back to life in the modern era. ALLEN & ENVY are set for global domination and are force to be reckoned with, especially if you like your trance energetic, emotional, with pounding drive and bursts of sheer euphoric bliss!
The Leicester based duo made up of Steve Allen and Scott Envy simply met at a summer BBQ through mutual friends, got talking and then instantly hit it off in the studio and on DJing together at some local gigs. They shared the same musical tastes and vision so Allen & Envy were born in an organic way. Bursting onto the scene in winter 2012, their first production, a rework of the trance classic “Cygnus X – The Orange Theme” was supported by Armin Van Buuren on his A State of Trance radio show, and later played at ASOT 600 Sao Paulo as well as Global Gathering 2013 UK and Ukraine by Jorn Van Deynhoven.
Fastforward a year and the the pair have released over 20 singles and a multitude of remixes on some of the world’s most supported labels including Armada, Black Hole, Adrian Raz Recordings, Rebooted Recordings, Fraction, Pharmacy and many up and coming labels. UK trance legend Scott Bond has been pushing the guys and asked them to provide the A&E remix treatment to the stunning vocals of Jan Johnston on the debut release on his new Rebooted label. Armin said on the radio during the worldwide exclusive play that this production was bringing back that amazing Gatecrasher sound to trance!
Smashing their way into the hearts and minds of an adoring global trance fan base through their huge vocal anthem sound has been key to the rise of Allen & Envy. The duo have been hugely helped by constant Armin van Buuren support in his live sets and on ASOT, even getting 4 ASOT plays in a row and Armin’s tune of the week with their remix of Dart Rayne & Yura Moonlight and Sarah Lynn – Silhouette, which has been Allen & Envy’s biggest production yet hitting the top 10 on the ASOT tune of the year poll. Their Silhouette remix turned into a 2013 trance anthem, being played by everyone in Ibiza to Asia, Argentina to England. Talla 2xlc selected it for his cd on the famous Technoclub compilation and Armin put it on his Universal Religion 7 comp. Also doing maximum damage was the duos rework of K90 – Red Snapper, it was supported by the elite names yet again and the best events. Their remix of ‘Stole The Sun also conquered the world with Armin championing it on every ASOT and Armin Only event. Egyptian trance masters Aly & Fila have also been a huge supporter from the start of Allen & Envy’s breakthrough with many FSOE plays and other huge heavyweight names like Scott Bond, PVD, Sean Tyas, John OCallagahn, John Askew, Menno de Jong have been showing the love alongside a huge list of newer names making waves on the scene. Now frequently appearing in the Beatport top 100 they have the sights set on the top 10 and its not a matter of if but when they hit the top spot.
TOGETHER RECORDINGS – As Allen & Envy gathered momentum they were in contact with countless amazing new producers from all over the world and this, plus the fact they wanted to be in control of their own release schedule, brought about the idea to launch their very own label TOGETHER Recordings in September 2013. From the word go the first release picked up top name promo support and now has had plays from Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Aly & Fila, Markus Schulz, John O'Callaghan, Scott Bond, Solarstone, Signum, Mark Sherry, Sean Tyas, Photographer, Sneijder, Andy Moor, RAM, M.I.K.E, Angry Man, Indecent Noise, Linnea Schossow, Talla 2XLC, Matt Darey, Manuel Le Saux, Ferry Tayle, Roger Shah, Eddie Bitar, David Forbes, Johann Stone, Steve Morley, Suncatcher, Estigma, Maria Healy and more...

Gig wise the duo have already made an early impact after being selected for the worlds largest and most famous trance event ASOT 650 in Utrecht in early 2014 where they were reported to have ‘ stole the show’ on the Talent Stage.
With huge trance brands such as Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, ASOT, Luminosty and their debut assault on planet trance well underway from Ireland to Italy, USA to Australia, the pair are in demand worldwide.

Ronny was born on the 1st of August 1974 in Trinec, Czech Republic. 1991 is where it all started, with Ronny learning to DJ under the guidance of professional DJs. After 4 years of practice he turned his hobby into a career, and also started producing his own tracks. His first projects were called Exhibit, Sonic Empire and FM FACTORY, which launched in 1997. Ronny enjoyed many successes under these aliases.
By 2003 Ronny had fallen in love with house music, and collaborated with a friend to form The Weekend Project, which was oriented on this genre.
In 2004 and 2005 Ronny became hooked on the sounds of uplifting trance, and started to produce tracks of the genre. Ronny was also involved with TV and radio (interactive TV and radio Fun1), creating music graphics, jingles and signatures.
A huge change came in 2006, when he moved from Prague to London.
30th November 2006 is a day, which will never be forgotten by him or Eddie Sender; their track Eddie Sender vs Ronny K, Singularity was played by Armin van Buuren on the worlds most prestigious trance radio show: A State Of Trance. Through this Ronny K became the first Czech producer to appear on the show.
In 2008 he launched his Trance4nations show on Afterhours FM which went on to become the most popular show. A proud moment came when Ronny had his track Morning light selected as the anthem for one of the biggest events in the history of EDM radio broadcasts - the AH.FM EOYC. His track Seashore was also signed by Magic Island/Armada.
In 2009 AH.FM listeners voted him as the #1 DJ, ahead of Aly and Fila, Sean Tyas, Manuel LeSaux and Daniel Kandi, in the official AH.FM poll.
By this stage his productions were supported by many of the biggest names in trance, including: Meno De Jong, Sean Tyas, Manuel Le Saux, Roger Shah, Pedro Del Mar, Woody Van Eyden, Alex Morph, Jorn Van Deynhoven, and the then world #1 DJ Armin Van Buuren.
2010 started strongly, with the release of the Official AH.FM Anthem, Morning Light, which was supported by Armin Van Buuren on ASOT 435. Morning Light was voted as the Future Favourite, and Armada Music released this track on their compilation A State Of Trance Radio Top 15 (February 2010). Next up was The Emotion EP, which comprised of Ronny K Vs Ziki, From Somewhere, and Emotia, Sequile, with the latter getting dropped by Jorn Van Deynhoven at ASOT450. Armin used his productions time and again, with the track From Somewhere airing on ASOT 453.
2011 saw continued support of Ronny's productions, as well as the tracks signed to his Motiv8 Recordings label, which launched on the first of August. Ronny also played his first set in The Netherlands.
2012 is shaping up to be another great year, with more high quality uplifting productions coming from his label, and the man himself, including his reinterpretation of Samuel Barber's Adagio For Strings, which aired for the first time at Luminosity Beach Festival.
Touchstone is a Producer & International Dj from Middlesbrough in the UK. Over recent years he has built up massive support and releasing music on a wide range of credible labels. From Defcon to Digitized, Silent Shore to D.Max, Armada to Enhanced, the list just keeps growing. He is one of the most prolific producers out there and has already become a firm favourite with the likes of Aly & Fila, Armin Van Buuren, Bryan Kearney, Abstract Vision, Dave Deen, Ferry Corsten, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Kaeno, M.I.K.E., Manuel Le Saux, Neal Scarborough, Nitrous Oxide, Ozzy XPM, ReOrder, Robert Vadney, Sean Tyas, Setrise, Singularity, Sophie Sugar, Stoneface & Terminal, Suzy Solar, Talla 2XLC, Tom Colontonio plus many more.
