Don Ortega is Euphoric Nation, a trance DJ and producer whose trance headquarters is in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Euphoric Nation's humble beginnings in Minneapolis shaped the driven, self-taught young artist who would utilize Youtube tutorials to learn how to produce and DJ. In the early 2000s, Don Ortega formed a trance group with his brothers Carlos Ortega and Casiano Ortega. In 2011 a fourth member, Romel Brown, was added to the group but eventually only one person (Don Ortega) would remain.
While together, the brothers started a weekly radio show called Trance Paradise that Euphoric Nation has continued into the present day. The weekly Internet radio show introduces its audience to the best of trance and progressive and has topped 350 episodes with over 300,000 plays on iTunes podcasts worldwide. The show airs every Thursday on Afterhours.fm (ah.fm).
Under the mentorship and tutelage of former local Minnesota resident David Thulin, Euphoric Nation learned the finer points of production and would take up producing his own trance tracks. Euphoric Nation now has tracks signed to Above All Records and OHM Music.
On top of producing trance and playing trance to electrify the Minneapolis nightlife, Don works with local promoters to help bring international trance talent to Minneapolis. International artists that have visited Minneapolis due to Don’s influence include Aly & Fila, Judah, Sean Tyas, Jaytech, Ucast, and Cosmic Gate. He is also the creator of the Minneapolis Trance Family Facebook group, whose numbers continue to swell.
Euphoric Nation is committed to furthering the growth of trance music with solid events and a passion for making emotive trance. For bookings, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
