The challenge which takes place on 9th June has already raised nearly £1,000 for charities Help for Heroes and The Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic & District Hospital Nhs Trust. N-Trancehopes this figure will rise significantly, as more details of the endeavour is released to fans and fundraisers.
Lewis, aka DJ Kuta, is legendary dance act N-Trance’s official DJ, ensuring the sets of the ever-popular group remain as energetic as always. Fellow fundraiser Tez will complete the nearly 1,000 mile ride on a handcycle, following a tragic paragliding accident some twelve years ago which left him paralysed from the chest down.
Originating from Oldham, Manchester, N-Trance continue to play to delighted audiences all over the world, particularly in the UK where their seminal track ‘Set you free’ has been an effervescent rave/dance anthem since it first ignited the charts in 1995. The track, which reached number 2 in the UK charts and sold well over half a million copies, continues to inspire an interest in dance music from otherwise lost audiences, and has been successfully released and sampled on a number of occasions.
Amidst an array of recent appearances, N-Trance have still found time to produce new material, including the recent track ‘Is this love’, which quickly became a fan favourite and featured on dance compilation ‘Clubland 18' released in December 2010.
