Gabriel & Dresden @ Rev 2/16/18
by Bradley Loiederman

Calling all trance fans! The duo Gabriel & Dresden is heading to REV as part of their tour for their latest album, “The Only Road”. The pair go far back, to 2001, when they met as separate artists at the Winter Music Conference in Miami. Since then, they have produced some of the most iconic dance tracks, such as “Tracking Treasure Down” and “Waiting For Winter”, one of their most recent top hit songs.

Josh Gabriel and Dave Dresden produce music together as the duo known as Gabriel & Dresden. They made their rise to fame together with their first album, “Bloom” in 2004. They also received notable attention after their remix of Above & Beyond’s “No One on Earth” won “Top Trance Track of the Year”.

Despite their successes, the two had their ups and downs; in 2008, they decided to part ways and work on individual projects, with Josh starting a new record label and releasing solo albums, and Dave working with different artists on remixes and singles.

Their solo endeavors continued for two years, until New Year’s Eve in 2010, when they reunited and played a special set in Los Angeles. Since this moment, they have played together at some of the largest festivals, such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo, and many more.

One of Gabriel & Dresden’s latest career gain was getting signed under Above & Beyond’s record label, Anjunabeats. The announcement came out at Above & Beyond’s “Group Therapy 250”, held at the Gorge Amphitheater this past fall. Another pivotal moment of Gabriel & Dresden’s career is the release of their latest album, “The Only Road”. This album represents their monumental return as a duo, and features various styles, such as trance, progressive house, as well as some down-tempoed songs. The tracks, “Waiting For Winter” and “This Love Kills”, are two of their most recent and biggest hits, being featured on many different trance radio shows by some of the most well-known trance artists, such as Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren, Cosmic Gate and Ferry Corsten, to list a few.

Gabriel & Dresden are stopping into Minneapolis on their “The Only Road Tour” this Friday at REV Ultra Lounge! You don’t want to miss this show; it’ll be a show full of feel-good music. Tickets are still available for purchase here!
