Lifeforms detected at Astral Circus!
Written by Andy Force on 14-05-16 20:40 (5153 views) (3 comments)
Lifeforms are Maor Tsemah and Charlie Holden, who, from different sides of the world, have created one of the most exciting new musical partnerships of the progressive psy trance world. Their evolution of the prog-psy sound that has been rising in popularity over the last decade pushes at the tougher end of the progressive spectrum with a full-on flair, igniting dancefloors with a bang!

As Astral Circus prepares to land once more at the Electrowerkz this Friday the 20th May with its well-earned reputation for the highest standards of musical and visual production, Andy Force caught up with one half of the project – Maor – to understand more about what drives this unique entity.

Spinning yarns with Grouch ahead of his visit to London
Written by Tara on 14-05-16 15:46 (5184 views)
There are very few producers who can make music for almost every time and place, but as a long-time fan I reckon Kiwi composer Grouch is one of those extraordinary few. From the lush chilled sounds of the likes of Soul Provider and his Kaya Project remix of One Hundred Lights to his breaksy, dubbier, and downright wonky glitchy sounds, to his more full-on techier, proggier, bassier and psychedelic tracks, Grouch’s back catalogue covers a uniquely vast spectrum of electronic music.

This Thursday night he’s being flown in from Melbourne for a special one-off two-hour set at Ott. & The All-Seeing I & Friends at Koko, where he’ll be showcasing the full spectrum of his sounds, including his new album Corpus Callosum, out next month on Zenon Records. We managed to lure him out of the studio to spin a few yarns before he jumped on the plane…

From Bristol to Boomtown, Monk3ylogic bring their psy-breaks back to the Circus
Written by Tara on 11-05-16 20:11 (4288 views) (1 comment)
Bristol-based psy-breaks duo Monk3ylogic were initially inspired to start writing music at their first parties in the heady days of the exploding rave scene in the early ’90s, but it wasn’t until technology caught up with their plans in the form of powerful PCs that they could finally start putting their unique stamp on their own sounds. They’ve since played all of the top UK festivals from Glastonbury to Glade and Boomtown – where they’ll be returning this summer – and released some killer tracks.

Currently taking a break from production while they kit out their studio so they can complete some older tracks and start some new ones, it appears the best is still yet to come on the production front. In the meantime, with the boys headlining the alternative room at the Astral Circus presents The Psy-Fi London Launch Party on Friday 20th May at Electrowerks, we threw the psychedelic simians a few bananas to get them talking…

Written by Nikki S on 02-05-16 14:40 (5171 views) (1 comment)
In May 2013 a supernova explosion of epic proportions hit the psy trance world… Vini Vici had arrived! After the global success of their Future Classics album on Iboga Records and a succession of hit tracks, Vini Vici firmly established themselves as one of the world’s top psychedelic and progressive trance acts, that aren’t afraid to push boundaries and take dance floors to new energy levels.

In between all of the jet-setting and rocking the biggest festivals across all corners of the globe, we caught up with Vini Vici creators, Matan and Aviram, ahead of their forthcoming gig at Astral Circus presents the Psy-Fi Festival launch party in London on Friday 20th May at Electrowerkz.

With every new edition of Tribal Village – A Psychedelic Adventure, Free-Spirit Records head honcho Journey aka Jay Om introduces London to a new wave of incredible international artists. The forthcoming edition of Saturday 7th May at The Steelyard is no exception, as Croatia’s Rio Dario makes his London debut alongside a plethora of psychedelic talent from around the globe.

He first got into electronic music in the early ’90s, discovering psy trance in 1997 and has been actively producing music since 2010. In short, his first London appearance is going to be well worth checking out. As the excitement builds, we tracked down the man himself for a chin wag…

Bioshokk Triplicity: Matt Melody speaks to Webbo, with VinDiesel taking notes to make the magic three
Written by VinDiesel on 19-01-16 14:10 (4916 views) (6 comments)
The UK Hard House scene broke out towards the end of the 1990’s with a meteoric rise in promotions hosting parties like Frantic, Tidy, Tasty, Twist, Peach, Trade, and Twisted.

Sadly, during the past few years, many of these parties have closed, DJs have retired and there is talk of the hard house scene ‘dying’. But NO; it’s still alive and thriving! We may not have the weekly or monthly events we had 10 years ago but there are some are some fantastic parties still going.

One of them is Bioshokk, launched by Matt Melody in 2010. Matt was one of the earliest members of HarderFaster, as SECURITY MAN he joined in 2001.

Daksinamurti interview: psy trance's resident ethnologist comes to Tribal Village
Written by Tara on 05-01-16 19:20 (4359 views) (1 comment)
It’s not every day you manage to speak with an artist who, as well as DJing under his Daksinamurti guise, producing and performing as one half of live act Android Spirit, and managing two of psy trance’s most happening labels – Timecode and Sangoma Records – is also a fully qualified ethnologist, but Daksinamurti Till is one such rare virtuoso.

With the man himself coming to London from his native Germany this weekend to headline Tribal Village – A Psychedelic Adventure at The Steelyard on Saturday night, we ambushed this international jetsetter just as he got off the plane from a long flight from Brazil, where he’d brought the New Year in at psy trance institution Universo Paralello…

Launching Frequency of Space with Nikki S
Written by Tara on 22-11-15 15:29 (5989 views)
Certainly no stranger to HarderFaster, Nikki S has been one of the driving forces behind the London dance scene since the heady days of her sell-out Endorphin events in the early noughties. After years promoting events and managing artists and labels, it was perhaps inevitable that she’d eventually follow her passion and start DJing and producing. Now all her hard graft is finally paying off, for she was signed to first Liquid then Alchemy Records earlier this year, then in April her debut EP Mechanical World went straight to No. 2 in the Beatport charts.

On the eve of the release of her incredible debut album Frequency of Space and the album launch party at the Alchemy and Psy-Boutique Party on Saturday 5th December at The Steelyard – where she’ll be playing live alongside psy trance legends Sonic Species, Earthling, Shane Gobi, Hamish, Renegade DJ and Bahar Canca – we managed to get this true diva of dance to slow down for a few minutes for a long overdue chat…

Andy Force interviews Sourone ahead of his UK debut at the Zenon Records Special
Written by Andy Force on 11-10-15 22:04 (4856 views)
The musical philosophy of some artists suggests that the route to success is the path of adaptation and acquiescence to the fads and fashions which circulate the music scene, in the hope that the popular wave they ride will take them to new heights. Counterposed to this are those to whom the pure expression of musical instinct cannot be compromised, and whose creative art is brought into this world for its own sake. These innovators and originators are the life-blood of the scene; their ideas are the ones which stimulate the growth of new techniques, styles, methods and even genres. These creators often sit on the margins until the world is ready for their arrival, instead of making themselves fit into the pre-existing paradigms of the musical world. [Full Story]
