Turbo Trance Records/Arabesque
Remarqué sur la scène trance mondiale avec son album Lost Paradises, le français Charles Michaud est de retour, et quel retour ! Un style radicalement différent, certes toujours mélodique et groovy, fidèle à sa signature, mais beaucoup plus abouti .Une production vraiment phat le rapprochant du style de Sub6, «Stop The Press », titre le plus intéressant , aussi bien du côté production que du côté effets et astuces le démontrant amplement. Entre les influences tech house «Question and Answer», funky comme sur «Bokoboko», un tube qui galope qui galope, ou très aérées et deep comme sur le magnifique «Wicked Jimmy» ou le surprenant «Electrology», Triptych nous montre tout son potentiel. A noter 2 collaborations avec des artistes du label, l’une avec Beka très réussi, et l’autre avec Dj Senix, parfait pour le petit matin, avec une jolie guitare. L’album de la maturité ! VITAL Psychotrop (02/2005)
After launching their two new concepts, Accelerator series and Trance Express series, Turbo Trance follows up with the eagerly awaited second album from their sonic star..… Triptych.
Already the tracks featured on this album have been gaining fantastic feedback from his most recent live sets.
Later this year the second edition of the Accelerator series, this time compiled by Australian DJ Beka, will be released. She will be demonstrating an utterly danceable blend of psychedelic sounds and will include artists from all corners of the globe.

Turbo Trance is proud to present “Electrology”, the 2nd Triptych album produced by Charles Michaud. In the past 12 months Charles has been touring the world showcasing his first album “Lost Paradises”, released by Turbo Trance in 2004. Since then he has released tracks on some of the most renowned Psy-Trance labels such as T.I.P World, Mind Control, Nano, Alchemy and Transient amongst others.
Charles Michaud is known for his unique and original style and this Triptych album demonstrates his brilliant skills in terms of production quality. His sound is both wide and dynamic simultaneously and is always clear and powerful. Listening is a pleasure, dancing is a must!
Be ready to explore the new technological face of his music. Still groovy and inspired by many influences, this album is a unique fusion. From minimal-pumping rhythms to “lounge” harmonies, from ecstatic melodies and funky basslines to disco beats and electro-pop leads………Charles takes the “Electro” sound for a journey through Psychedelic Trance.
Come along and join us for the ride. Big smiles and positive vibes are guaranteed!! After all life wasn’t always meant to be serious….

In terms of marketing, Turbo Trance records developed last year a clothes trademark expending his merchandising. With the help and ideas from all Turbo trance artists, Turbo Trance Wear developed three different collections holding the name of three artists: Triptych’s collection with more fashion and clubbing clothes, Psypilot’s collection with more cyber and Psychedelic clothes and Beka’s collection dedicated to the girls.
In this way, people who like Triptych music and are “fans”, can identity themselves to their favourite artist, wearing his clothes collection. It brings more promotion and impact to the name of the artist as our clothes are sold all over the world: Cosmo genesis in Portugal, Kosmik Kitchen in Holland, Psy DMT in UK, Tcheka, Underground Shop, Smart Import, Techno Import, What!, fakir Zoi… in France but also in Japan, Brasil, Mexico, USA…
Their clothes collection is also sold during the summer in festivals and parties where our artists are playing.
