Cosmic Gate - 20 Years: Forward Ever, Backward Never

Release Date
3 x50 Black Hole Recordings 23 March 2019
Description
In 2019 Cosmic Gate will mark a milestone: twenty successive years of music-making union. It’s a period that has given rise to dozens of club classics, genre-shaping hits & outright anthems, 50+ career remixes and 8 (soon to be 9) albums. Regularly reminded of this approaching moment by fans, Nic & Bossi looked at not a way to salute the career landmark, but the way. Fresh off the back of their first Grammy nomination, what they’ll arrive with in the New Year won’t so much rewrite the ‘greatest hits’ rulebook, as leave it for dust.

“What Bossi & I didn’t want says Cosmic Gate’s Nic Chagall, was something that focussed exclusively on our last 20 studio years - a straight up ’greatest hits of Cosmic Gate or whatever. More, we were looking for something that was a broader echo of what we’ve experienced as DJs, with – further - an as-strong emphasis on the future”.

Released in the spring 2019, ’20 Years – Forward Ever, Backward Never’ is a music album project, apparently without precedent. “This will take us closer to the 360 of who we are, where we’ve been and – as much - where we’re going, feels Bossi”. Approaching the release from four distinct points, the album will comprise new Cosmic Gate productions, and collabs with artists who have accompanied their career. It’ll also feature reworks of tracks that have been of particular inspiration, as well as new takes from others on classic Cosmic moments. “Where these four avenues meet on the album will be the sign-off for our last 20 and mark the start of our next.”
