All great music reaches into your very soul, captures the mind and touches the heart. It can tell a story, take you on an incredible journey and
target many different types of emotions. Music such as this can only come from the hard work of a great artist, an artist such as the George Acosta.
With over 20+ years of experiences as a DJ and Producer, George can certainly be considered a driving force in the dance music industry. He is one of
the few original EDM artists that has managed to keep up with the evolution of dance music, reinventing himself and coming on stronger each and every
Born in Cuba and raised in Miami, George Acosta showed an interest in music at a very young age while watching his father play records at home and at
parties. Music was definitely a staple in the Acosta household. George began his career as a local DJ in his native Miami, spinning anywhere from high
school parties, to clubs on South Beach. He would spin any type of dance music, from techno to house. In the early 90s, as his popularity on South
Beach grew, and house DJ’s such as Erik Morillo and Roger Sanchez were becoming rising stars, George began gaining an interest in producing dance
music. “Honestly, it was when I first heard Josh Wink that I made my decision to produce my own music,” says Acosta. A trip to Germany is where
George’s creativity flourished and Planet Soul was born. Signed under Strictly Rhythm, Planet Soul gained its stardom for the well-know hit, Set You
Free, earning Acosta the Gold Record status. Gaining international status with the success of Planet Soul didn’t stop George from forging ahead.
Once again, he returned to his roots and began DJing as the well-known George Acosta, transitioning from house to trance music. He then began his
residency at the very famous Shadow Lounge on South Beach, solidifying trance not only in Miami but also in the U.S. Week after week, George mastered
his craft as a trance DJ. Many of his fans say that George Acosta has an innate ability to read the crowd and know what they wanted to hear. He was
also notorious for having the ability to take his audience on a wonderful, emotional roller coaster ride during their visit to the club. While at
Shadow, George continued producing some of his own original work. Some of these songs were: Emotions, Taking Over Space, and The Reaper. He also
released several compilations under the Ultra Records Label which included: Awake and AM PM, just to name a few. Between touring around the world at
popular events, such as Berlin’s Love Parade, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival and world renowned clubs such as, Space Miami, Exit, Privilege and
Pacha, he continued releasing more hit compilations such as, Trance Nation America on Ministry Of Sound and The History of Trance. This is what made
George Acosta a legacy in dance music...
