DJ Tristan

Dj Tristan

UK based Tristan, has been djing since the birth of psychedelic trance and should need no introduction. Often hailed as one of the greatest trance DJ’s of all time, he was the main DJ at Twisted Records for 10 years and is now the head of the Nano Records troop.  He has collaborated with artists such as Prometheus, Allaby, ManMadeMan, Dick Trevor (of Green Nuns), Hallucinogen aka Simon Posford, Space Tribe, Laughing Buddha (as Fearsome Engine) and most recently, Avalon.   This block-rocking new project with Leon ‘Avalon’ is of course, Killerwatts. They’ve had a fantastic debut year headlining at every major festival worldwide.  From Universo Paralello in Brasil, Glade Festival, Boom Festival, Freqs of Nature, Burning Mountain, Indian Spirit, Ozora, Aurora and finishing up with the Eclipse 2012 in Australia to name but a few.

And of course there’s India…  as one of the founding members and greatest supporters of the psychedelic trance movement worldwide, it’s only natural that his body, heart and soul belong in the place where it all began- Goa. He spends most of the season there every year, soaking up the party atmosphere, re-charging the soul; absorbing the very energy that powers our scene, and then channeling that into a musical reality in his Goan and London studios, and blasting the dance-floors across the world.

The end of 2012 / early 2013 will see Tristan produce his 4th studio album, distilling the whole range of new influences, inspirations and techniques from his travels, gigs, studio time and collaborations; to add a new dimension to the musical journey achieved in previous albums Audiodrome, Substance & Chemisphere. He’s buzzing as hard as ever about his productions and performances, especially after the success of his closing-day headline gigs at Ozora and Boom. 2013 will see Tristan celebrate 20 years of playing and pioneering psychedelic trance music and is planning a tour that promises to ignite the dancefloors worldwide- “so get on board and hold tight”!!!

Wing Makers

Master Blasters

Longleat UK 1992 summertime and the psychedelic music is pounding out of 25k of Turbosound speakers outside at night, and through the next day after the sun has risen, over the English countryside. Master Blasters are there to commune and experience this extraordinary powerful force of sound and vibration known as trance. Master Blasters are on hand to effectively witness the birth of psy trance in the UK, from the parties at Youth’s Dragonfly studios, to ‘Little People’ happenings in Bicester (the early incarnation of Flying Rhino). The affinity with this energy, power and totally ‘out there’ sound leads Zephirus Kane and Jamie Patterson to become ambassadors themselves, playing the sound at outdoor parties, London’s ‘Megatripolis’, ‘A Grain of Sand’ and what was to become ‘Wingmakers’, amongst other events.

Finding it difficult to find enough of the right music that he would want to play to the dance-floor, and having fallen into the cauldron, Zephirus embarked on a cosmic voyage of discovery into samplers, synthesizers and all round analogue/digital madness to become a sonic alchemist. Jamie began to learn and collaborate with some the leading producers of the genre picking up tips and tricks along the way. He went on to become one of the leading DJ’s of the scene playing around the world and releasing two collaboration albums with the original trance label Dragonfly Records (‘Beaches & Cream’ and ‘Wingmakers’) and one with leading trance label Nano records (‘Wingmakers – Beyondwards and Upwards’). Jamie produced tracks with some of the UK’s top psy artists, including Tristan, Dickster, Prometheus, Lucas, Youth, Aphid Moon, Chameleon and Laughing Buddha.

In 2008 Master Blasters formed as the pair collaborated for the first time and made their debut track. As they tapped into the cosmic vibrational funk of the universe they sought to summon up all the excitement, power and inspiration that they had absorbed on dance floors during those early days of the birth of trance. As unreleased artists they were invited to play at Boom festival 2010 rocking the dance floor as the sun rose over Portugal. This followed shows at UK’s Glade Festival, Origin in South Africa, The Wheel of life in Italy, Acid Monkey parties in London, Freak Bazaar in Brighton, Eden in Bournemouth and many more. Indeed Master Blasters have travelled through time and space to deliver hyper slabs of global tectonic funk that have been lovingly and meticulously crafted to rock your soul and move your feet. Fresh from ultra dimensional voyaging they deliver a huge slice of the past, present and future in the form of super spikedelic dancefloor stormers and dust kicking tribal blasters. Now Master Blasters have unleashed their debut album ‘LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCES’ on Nano Records. Also available on Nano is their digital EP ‘Blaster Pieces’ featuring ‘Temple Ball’, their first collaboration with psy master Tristan. Zephirus Kane has also recently remixed Avalon’s Swamp Funk.

Master Blasters are now busy crafting their next album, which will include further collaborations with some of the world’s best psy trance producers, including Dickster, Tristan, Tron and Avalon, as well as a host of new MB material.

Fans have described the music as for the “lovers of space trance”, “a solid stair to the universe”, “super delicious cosmic paths and astral enlivenment”, “monster dirty leads and deep melodies”, “music for vast spaces and huge sound systems”, “some of the most psychedelic music ever”.

These jams are hot.

Celi Fish


Celli was born on the island of Ibiza in 1977. In the early 90’s, he began going to Full Moon parties and clubs on the island, which influenced him greatly, Since the island has always had a healthy music, and party scene.

In 1992, he began working with an organization in Ibiza called Art Party, and learned the art of party organizing.

When the first Psychedelic Trance arrived on the island, Celli fell in love with the music, and he, and a group of friends began organizing their own parties, specializing in Psychedelic trance.
These parties were very successful, and helped to kick off the psytrance scene in Ibiza, which is still very popular today.

It was at one of these parties that he played his first dj set.

In the year 1998, after six years of making parties, and djing on the island, Celli bought his first studio equipment, and began creating his own music, shortly afterwards he formed his solo project… Earthling, releasing his first tracks “Just Say Yes” on T.I.P. records, “Dusty Hoffmans” on Neurobiotic records, and his debut album “Patterns” on Acidance records in 2001, which gave him global recognition, and launched his career as an international Dj and performer.

Shortly afterward, with his friends Riktam and Bansi of legendary Psytrance group GMS, he formed a new group called Soundaholix . Together, they have produced dozens of hits such as: Psychedelic Circus, Technofari, and The Moon, and will release their debut album “Soundaholix Anonymous” in December 2008.

In 2003 He formed another group called Vatos Locos, with Trance pioneer Nick Doof, and Mexican Dj Xavier Fux.

They have two albums together. Welcome 2 da Barrio, and Attack and Release. Their first album “welcome 2 da Barrio” , was released on Sony Music, Dance Division, and went on to achieve huge success all over south America, with their music videos being shown on MTV and Telehit.

Celli also produces Minimal Techno under the name Monoxcide, and Chill out, under the name Earthling , with his tracks appearing on many Ibiza-based compilations over the years, and has a chillout/Dub based project with Nick Doof called 3rd Ear Audio.

Earthling’s highly anticipated second album “Hypernature” will be released on Neurobiotic records in December 2008, and promises to be a contemporary definition of his sound: a unique blend of deep, psychedelic soundscapes and organic rhythms.

Peak Records

Ajja & Gaspard

Yab Yum two musicians, two sets of creative energy, influenced by each other & fusing in a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Gaspard has been DJing and organizing parties for many years. He started as DJ Throbbe and played with Psyberpunk Corp. Today, he is DJ Gaspard for his night-time psychedelic trance sets and DJ Equilibrium for his floating ambient mixes.

Ajja has been a musician all his life. Growing up in the world-famous tattooing Leu family and travelling across the world has given him a strong creative drive. Although he lived in Goa when trance was coalescing, the jadedness of the scene turned him away from electronic music for many years. He accumulated a major body of original non-trance material as a by-product.

In 1998 Gaspard came in for a tattoo in Ajjas shop and they became fast friends. During the next few years Gaspard helped refuel Ajjas love of trance by dragging him out to psychedelic parties across Switzerland. Their first performance together, at the Psyberpunk Naturalp Festival in November 2002, consisted of Gaspards DJ set, live percussion & live fx by Ajja. Later that year, they toured Australian festivals – Outback Eclipse, Rainbow Serpent & Exodus.

In the summer of 2003, Gaspard and Ajja in collaboration with visual artist Tanina Munchkina & musician Master Margherita created Peak Records – Switzerlands first psy-trance label! Performing together with the P.G.C (an organic-trance live-act of which Ajja is a founding member) through the summer of 2004, revealed high compatibility between Gaspard & Ajja ranging from very similar tastes in music to humour, partying & psychedelic philosophy.

The next logical step was the formation of their live act: Yab Yum. So Logic was bought, laptops were tuned up & they got down to business: Ajja bringing his knowledge of instruments and frequencies and Gaspard, a strong sense of dance-floor dynamics from his experience as a DJ & sound engineer.

This combination has produced many strong, psychedelic, dance oriented tracks, that have been greatly appreciated by trancers everywhere. Yab Yum have been released on respected labels worldwide & have released their debut album “Nocturnal Emissions” on Peak Records in December 2006.

In June 2008, due to personal reasons, Dj Gaspard played his last gig with Yab Yum. Since then, Ajja has taken on the project on his own, and is currently performing in parties and festivals around the globe.
