In a relatively short time since his first release on Somatic Sense, Rob Stevenson, better known as Activa, has been one of the most hard working producers in the Trance genre. He has created many new alias’ such as Solar Movement, Mekk, Substate, Force One, Aira Force, CMR and Eluna to showcase the range of his production skills, while continuously developing the sound of his main Activa alias.

Rob has appeared on the likes of Spinnin (Liquid), Discover, High Contrast, Black Hole, Enhanced, Somatic Sense and finally Paul van Dyk’s mighty Vandit Records which has enabled him to push his way into the record boxes of the biggest names in the industry and receive their continuous support.

As an engineer Rob has worked closely with Jon O’Bir to create Jon’s first artist album, From Within and has engineered and produced, singles and remixes for Jon, Aled Mann (Discover), Owen Clark (Club Elite), Freesoup (Five AM), Chris & Matt Kidd (Joyride) and David Newsum (Discover), clearly showing the range and diversity of Rob’s production skills.

Although he is primarily known as a producer, Rob has been DJing since his first experience with a pair of turntables while at school. He has gone on to play at the biggest nights in the UK including Gatecrasher and Passion and regularly travels the UK and often abroad to perform. He is a bi-monthly resident at easily the best and fastest growing night in the UK, Digital Society, where his late sets have become a popular part of the night showcasing the harder side of his style.

    I've been a loyal fan of his work since early days (the release of Perception/Disclosure EP, Substate - Horizon, collaboration tracks like Liquefaction, 2005-2006). Clean, deep, banging, pure trance sound. And he holds true to his roots even having moved to the psy-influenced sound. He was respected in the mainstream trance scene, now he's respected (and as unique) in the underground. Kudos, Rob!

    Activa has always been responsible for pure trance. Elite producer who makes intelligent and profound trance music.

    Activa has been my favourite trance producer since early 2006, with the release of Substate - Horizon and Solar Movements' Under The Sun, two of his best tracks to date (along with Substate's The Following produced in 2007).

    This guy's music is seriously godly. How he hasn't become more popular yet really stumps me.
