The Muses Rapt

Real Name:
Juan Verdera Fernández
Profile:
Juan Verdera aka The Muses Rapt is a Spanish psychedelic trance musician. He began his career in the early 80's when he worked as a keyboardist with experimental punk bands like Derribos Aria, who used drum machines and guitars to create a hybrid of punk and industrial. He then came to Ibiza and began promoting concerts and invested his money in a studio in which he began to write his own experimental techno tracks. When he performed his first open-air-party in India, he "fell in love" with Goa trance, and so he decided to devote himself to creating of trance.

The next stage in his life that made a great impact was when he discovered that he had a cancer and he should go through intensive course of chemotherapy. During this time Juan found for himself peace and relief in trance music. After one of the treatment sessions Juan arrived to his studio and under the influence of inspiration that came to him he wrote his famous track "Spiritual Healing". After this single was released Juan started to recover and is in better health these days.

This man is a legend of electronic music, not only trance genre.
I had the pleasure to meet him and he is an humble, friendly and nice human being, he deserves much more success because he´s a real musician with a great background in many musical styles, but in trance he found the highlight of his creativity, a true master really.

Anybody who can write a track like 'spiritual healing' deserves all the credit in the world.
