He is Zsolt Gasparik, also known [or, better said, known by the vast majority of his acquaintances] as Hoyaa.
His first entrance in the big trance community was his firs track titled “Rising Star”
in episode 441 of Armin Van Buuren’s Radio Show called “A State Of Trance”. Basically this was his first most important ticket to the trance world as we say,the track was signed by Dash Berlin’s Aropa sub label of Armada Music.
Later on, he started remix jobs for artists like; A.R.D.I. ,Angel Ace,Cylum,Jo Micali,Sunlab, Serenade …etc. He had ben invited to several trance radio shows as guest DJ. Than came ASOT 500 when one of the biggest names like Jorn Van Deynhoven played his track called “Te Other World” as guest,at “A State Of trance” 500 in Johannesburg,South Africa.
Dash Berlin’s “United Destination 2012” compilation was the next big thing for Hoyaa. The track “Rising Star” had the chance to appear on this amazing compilation next to bigger names like, Dash Berlin,Rank1 , Mike Shiver, Roger Shah, Ferry Tayle, C-Systems, Emma Hewitt,Susana, Jaren …etc.
He also had the opportunity to collaborate with Dash Berlin on his album #musicislife, and together they made an uplifting track called “Aviation” that happily found it’s place on the album’s tracklist, next to names like: Dash Berlin, ATB, Shogun, Emma Hewitt, Jonathan Mendelson, Cerf,Mitiska & Jaren…etc.
His style is highly influenced by the music of his biggest idol Vangelis. He especially loves the music of Armin van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk and all the Trance stars who made a difference in electronic music.
Born on the 24th of December of the year 1982, even the first steps of his childhood were guided by the sounds of music. Ever since then, he has always been attracted to and captivated by the sound of music.
He had only been of the age of 5 when he started to discover the charming sounds of the piano and of the percussion instruments. His childhood love towards music was also expressed by his trials to build his own instruments to play with.
At only 11 years of age he had been admitted to the Music High school of Cluj-Napoca, where he had studied percussion instruments, and piano as secondary instrument, developing his musical talents.
His passion for electronic music had begun in 1993 when he had received his first synthesizer and started to produce his own music based on his intrinsic musical ideas.
Later on, he had completed his collection with another synthesizer, even more performing. The idea of combining the two synthesizers was another great leap in his life. The combination of the instruments with electronic rhythms and his personal musical ideas lead to his first songs.
Somewhere near the year 1999 he started to create different projects, he had participated at several Delahoya events organized by the Cluj Raving Society.
He had mixed at several Trance, House, and Techno parties which took place near his hometown, Cluj-Napoca, at Tarnita, in the courtyard of a nice chalet.
He had been member of several musical bands and projects, which were not too known by then,but around ’99 he started to center more and more to electronic music, which opened his mind and even his soul towards the magnificent world of music, especially trance.
