Ori Uplift

DJ Ori Uplift—owner/CEO of Abora Recordings, the best in orchestral uplifting trance & chillout—& host of the weekly radio podcast Uplifting Only


Ori Uplift is the owner and CEO of Abora Recordings and host of the weekly Uplifting Only radio podcast on DI.fm, iTunes, & Spotify. Uplifting Only features the best & newest in orchestral uplifting and uplifting trance, including world premieres from Abora & other labels. The 1st episode of each month contains uplifting vocal trance. The 2nd, 4th, & 5th episodes of the month are instrumental-only.

The two-hour show airs Thursdays every week on DI.fm's Epic Trance channel at 1200 EST/EDT, which usually corresponds to 1800 CET / 2130 IST. It is posted to Soundcloud, Mixcloud, & iTunes as a podcast soon thereafter. It then airs on 42 radio stations in 13 countries.

The show was rated the #6 & #8 "Best Radioshow/Podcast/Cloudcast" in the Trance Podium 2015 & 2015 Awards, respectively, and was ranked one of the top five trance podcasts for working out by Trance Hub (ranking first for yoga and pilates).

You can also find Ori playing beautiful uplifting sets live. He has closed for Aly & Fila, has performed with vocalists Caro Sosa and Erika Faries, and was the main headliner at the 2015 Trancervatory festival in Ecuador.

Ori has also ranked well on the Beatport charts. Three of his mixcompilations based on his Uplifting Only show reached the #1 spot on the Beatport release charts (trance and chillout), and two more have reached #2 on the trance charts. A total of 7 of his mixcomps or mixes have reached the top 5 on the Beatport charts.

It’s no surprise that Trance Hub named him one of six "Artists to watchout for". You'll be seeing more and more of him as he focuses on uplifting the general public with beautiful euphoric uplifting melodies and sounds!
