Audio Terrorist

Full-On Psytrance

"DJ Audio Terrorist was born in Bolsward, a small town in the North of
The Netherlands. He once had an amateur drive-in-show with his neighbour
when he was 11 years old.

DJ Audio Terrorist began listening to GOA Trance when he moved to Leeuwarden in 2007, where he met DJ Nilezz. At that time he played guitar in a punkband. After he went to several Psy Trance festivals he wanted more GOA!

In the beginning of 2010 he started messing around with turntables. He
started playing only Progressive Psy-Trance because he didn't have his
own CD's. Eversince there was a 3rd BIT DJ-booth in his own house, he
was absolutely wild about mixing Psy-Trance. When DJ Nilezz, DJ Anand and DJ Paul B
spotted his dedication to mixing, they motivated him to find out which
kind of Psy-Trance he really enjoyes most. It turned out to be Full-On
filled with thrilling basslines and a high dose of melodic experiences
which he prefers. DJ Audio Terrorist's first set on a 3rd BIT party was
in april 2011. A young and fresh perspective on GOA Trance!

Deejay Fev-elina

Electronic Tribe, Ragga, Drum & Bass, Balkanic Trance

My name is Fev but i'm performing as Deejay Fev-elina. My style is...hmmm,i don't really have "one" music style,cause i think there is so much nice music in this world that's why i don't want to fixate myself on just "one" genre! That's also the reason why i have a big music-collection with a lot of different genres and its every time a challenge for me to create a different atmosphere according to the place and audience and i think the art of a dj is to feel what the people on the dance floor like and to keep them on the dance floor!If i had to describe my gigs it would be"from Balkan till Tekno"(means a potpourrie of all kinds of music,according to where i am&what kind of evening&audience it is)but my heart&specialty is "Global" in all kinds&colors,by example:Balkan,Gypsy,Arab,Turkish,India,Bellydance,African,Salsa,Raga,Reggae,Dub,Tribe and divers fusions between all of this with a lot of natural instruments like a lot of drums,didgeridoo,sitar),sometimes very traditional and sometimes mixed with electronic music(Jungle,Drum&Bass,Electro,Tribe),so the music that i play is very powerful,rhythmic&dancable!(but i also have more chilly stuff) I also love&play other kinds of music (from 80-ties,Funk,Soul,Disco,Rock,Ska,Ambient,Lounge,Electro,Drum&Bass,Goa,Trance...till Tekno,according to what i'm booked for!!) I'm born&raised in Vienna/Austria (till the age of 19)grew up between the gypsy's,slavic and turkish people and since i was a baby i was already a lot of times in Croatia&Slovenia,that's probably also why i have a very strong connection with east european countries,languages&cultures&for sure u can hear that back in the music i play.Since 29 years i live in Rotterdam/Holland but the past couple of years i mostly played in other countries like Slovenia (Jalla Jalla,Klub Gromka,Channel Zero,Rog,Zlati Zob,Rozna Dolina)or Austria (Ostklub and divers partys),Portugal:Esplanada da Mata,Freequency festival,LX Casting club,Los Angeles, Sierra Nevada in Spain&now i'm busy to get more gigs in Holland&other countries! I used to sing in some bands in the past and years ago i was already turning records sometimes,but for the past 10 years i'm more serious busy with dj-ing,also now i'm dj-ing with my laptop(mac)which is very practical cause u always have all your music-collection with u. In Holland i played in: Psy Fi,Waterfront,Paard van Troje-cafe,De Parade,Off Corso,Ahoy,Grounds,also i organized for a while a special evening in the Exit(Global Beatz&Gypsy Tunes),Worm,Het Slaakhuis,Poolcenter,Robodock,De Machinist,Cyborg,Het Poortgebouw,Willens&Wetens,One-day_in-my-garden-festival,Fullmoon Babylon,Manhatten,Cafe Voigt,Fullmoon Babylon,De Avontuur,Cafe the Library&a lot of different privat partys.

DepGlobe

Progressive House, Deep House

When DepGlobe was about 8 years old he started listening to Dutch radio shows like “The Rock and Roll Method” and became a fan of Gene Vincent, Elvis and The Beatles. He bought his first 12” single in 1981 and that was New Order’s “Everything’s Gone Green” But it wasn’t New Wave only, men like Patrick Cowley and Giorgio Moroder had their influence on DepGlobe as well in the early 80-ties. Inspired in 1983 by Ben Liebrand, DepGlobe started making his own mixes. His “cut and paste” mixes were played at high school parties and he started DJ-ing at student parties. From 1998 until 2003 he made several mix CD’s in three different genres: ClubSession 1-7, GlobalTrance 1-6 and influenced by John Creamer, Stephane K, Lemon8 and Deep Dish he started his Massive Progressive Series 1-6 and spread them among friends. In the years to follow it became more and more clear that DepGlobe’s style is Progressive, although DepGlobe’s favorite tracks are sometimes hard to describe; is it progressive techno, is it just progressive, techno, tech house or deep house? Since 2011 DepGlobe is present on SoundCloud and after publishing his Lowlands Series he started DepGlobe’s NoEgo Sounds in November 2011. Since that time DepGlobe was present on United Radio, InsomaniaFM, Frisky Radio and several other radio shows and doing gigs at Techno and Deep House parties.

Polymer

Funky Progressive & Psychedelic Techno

Sound artist and electronic musician Daniel Maalman performs electronic music in a variety of flavours, that cover a wide range of styles, under the alias of Polymer. This wide range of styles all have a common denominator: they all could be described as psychedelic music. Atmospheric and dreamy ambient, psychedelic dub, funky dub-techno, groovy electronica, but also melodic and hypnotic progressive psychedelic techno. "In my musical endeavours I like to find the borders of what defines a style, to subsequently ignore this border by stirring something else into it that I like, to make something I haven't heard before. Since I improvise while I play live most of the times, without a fixated storyline, no performance is ever exactly the same."

Psychedeli

Darkpsy

Raas

Dark, uptempo and percussion-heavy techno.

Composer and producer of electronic music with the focus on ambient, downtempo and techno. May seem like an odd combination but preferably I combine all three as much as possible and my sound is recognizable throughout these genres. For this application I am focussing more on the dancefloor side of my music, which is techno (see 'Link to demo' box for my techno promo, it's not on my main soundcloud page yet). Besides creating music purely for listening pleasure I also apply my music to media such as animation, film and installation. I started this kind of work while finishing my study Composition and Music Technology at the Utrecht School of Arts. This has given me a wide variety of styles and sounds to combine and work with.

Shivanki

Fullon Pystrance, Dark/Forest Psytrance

DJ SHIVANKI hails from the Netherlands. She has been spinning decks and making party decor since 2007. Her love for Psy Trance began when she experienced her first Goa party in Rotterdam.

Shivanki stays faithful to the roots of Psy Trance, selecting tracks that she feels best represent the style she chooses to play, whether that is dark psy or full on. She quotes: “I have been a dancer from the moment I could stand on my feet, and a singer since I could make sound. My sets will invite you to the dance floor, so that you can dance the night away

Tim Tucan

a pleasant tapestry of ethnical, warm sounds and psychedelic techno

After several headlines about his discovery, Tim Tucan disappears off the radar, only to be discovered again years later in Eastern Europe. Here he was part of a travelling circus and raised furor with his bizarre act of balloon animals. After a big blow from the banking crisis of 2011, Tim Tucan decides to switch careers and take on a more financially secure job – that of a musican. Ever since Tim Tucan has been known for his colourful DJ-sets, which incorporate the sounds and experiences from his eventful past.
