JAHBO
Parvati Records, Denmark
Jahbo was born in 1981 in a hippie society in the north of Denmark. As a basic member of Parvati Records he started to appear on this label acts like a pioneer in the psytrance scene since it's beginning as well as the confidential person for Giuseppe, and relentless helped building up this special base for the extraordinariness in the music scene. Working in a music shop in his real life he is always refining his production skills meticulously to define his extraordinary and most definitely recognizable style at his recent state of the art and his tracks basically have this special charme of a tripped out mushroom atmosphere. Morphing soundscapes, wobbling basslines and an immense potion of the right humor spangled with a lot of twisted effects and surrealistic leads are a defined earmark of Jahbo tracks and so he was playing all around the globe on almost all important festivals with his exceptional live gigs and absorbing sets. He appeared on many releases, mainly on his homelabel in Denmark as well as on leading psytrance labels with the ideology of twisted trippy psytrance, with his solo project Jahbo, as well as under different collaborations as Abracadabra, Red Eye Jah, Psilo Cowboys. His dj sets are dedicated to the trippers on the dancefloor, and he is able to move it night or daytime with his crispy and of course typical Aarhus styled attitude to send the crowd on his wings of psytrance.

ONKEL DUNKEL
Parvati Records, Denmark
Onkel Dunkel is the solo project of Monno, member of G.O.W. The goal is hopefully with music as a medium to let people listening be able to go into a state that is normally not possible to reach in our noisy environments. With technology as an intermediary i try as hard as i can to reintegrate human consciousness with nature. New age babble apart i confess openly to be an incurable gear slut. All things that go ping and/or light up when recieving midi messages seem to be piling up at my place. Oh and did i mention a slight fetich for knobs on synths, guess it..s the price to pay for spending more time around synths than people these days. Now after a good while being stuck in my own mind i have a live set ready for action ? open for bookings! stay tuned…i might appear in a forest near you. As to what kinda music i do, i won..t go as far as to categorise my music. Take a listen and judge for yourself.

MIKHAIL BASHAKOV
Russia
Михаил Башаков - замечательный музыкант из Санкт-Петербурга, с потрясающим голосом, красивой игрой на гитаре и прекрасными, рассудительными текстами.
"Однажды я пришел на радиостанцию, которая называется «Наше радио» — прекрасная радиостанций. Они гоняли мои песни: «Элис», «Не парься», «Самбади» — эти песни стали популярными. А вот когда я им принёс другую песню, которая называется «Озарение», они сказали: «Ты знаешь, хорошая песня, но перегружена смыслом». Эту фразу я запомнил очень хорошо, потому что она мне очень понравилась. На мой взгляд, если бы философу сказали: «Твой текст перегружен смыслом», представляете какой комплимент, да?"

In 2011, Vadim leaves, and Everett Bone takes his place on the vocals and the lead guitar. Everett brings an extra edge to Red Sea sound.

VARONA
San Francisco / USA
A Part of Your Soul”, the fourth full-length album by the San Francisco-based VARONA, has been in the making for over a decade, and the songs that make it up have their origins further back yet, and have gone through many transformations.  For all their tendency towards experimentation, VARONA take a very meticulous approach to songwriting, arrangement and production.  The result is a work of precise weirdness.  W.H. Auden’s once suggested that poetry be defined as clear expression of mixed feelings.  By that standard, “A Part of Your Soul” is nothing if not potently poetic, filled to the brim with emotional ambiguity and contradiction.  The band’s stylistic influences are no less mixed than the feelings their songs evoke.  Barely-contained anxious spasms of screamy post-punk; frenetic, cheerfully-destructive experimentation of Downtown jazz; literary melancholy of late-20th century Russian-rock songwriting, are not so much ingredients here as deep-set roots, and what results less a cocktail than an exquisitely strange hybrid mutant not quite like anything else springing from San Francisco’s fertile musical soil.

ZUL
USA
Zul the Gatekeeper of Divine Resonance is a demigod of Apollo and minion of Arjuna.  His parents  strapped him with a violin when he was only a tender age of 4.  But it didn't take long for Zul to realize that what was on hand was beyond just a wooden string instrument that used a bow to create a timbre within a distinct frame of frequencies that gave it the violin sound.  But making the instrument sing the violin sound was something that required a certain level of control that only comes with repetition, practice, and time.  Zul didn't care about that at all.  He just went off in his own world and made all kinds of sounds and didn't take long for him to realize the power of sound;  how sounds can affect his emotions as well as those around him.  He instantly feel in love with this power more so than the instrument at hand.  His parents also felt the power and decided to take the violin away six months later to prevent further domestic distortion that often entailed destruction.  Fast forward decades later, Zul is still creating sound spaces.  But instead of using it to impose distruptions, he now serves a Triple Divine Directive for The People to illuminate, awaken, and liberate using a high frequency resonant medicine known to The People as psytrance.

FRACTAL COWBOYS
San Francisco, USA
The Fractal Cowboys have played around the world at some of the finest trance festivals and parties on the planet. They represent the funky side of trance, also know as Westpsy. Blending nasty beats with comedic intent, expect them to grind any genre into the juicy nectar of Westpsy. BIO Truth be told, Dylalien and Quasar were playing religious electronic music until very recent the Tracktor Pimps. Then one night while having a fun game with an all-female klezmer band, The Klezbians, they saw what could only be described as Bigfoot. They followed it across the field, because the skunky smell that seemed to emanate from Bigfoot entranced them to come hither, and into the woods. It was seconds, minutes, hours, a whole generation, before they noticed a large, saucer-shaped craft hovering just 6 feet above their heads. Sounds of screaming can be heard in the distance, and Quasar and Dylalien rush to the sound, only to find that once quite fetching ladies have turned half vampire, half zombie (zombies from the waist down for those of your wondering…). There was oozing out of the ground. As several Klezbians and a black dragon close in on Quasar and Dylalien, a sudden, brilliant flash of light blinds the Tractor Pimps. As their vision returns, they see Afro-Santa, floating, no, more like undulating toward them. “Afro-Santa!” the duo chortle. He just smiles and says, “Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho, HO, HO!!!” I’m goin’ to ho ho Hell, you want to join me?” Dylalien was unsure, but Quasar had two bags packed, for just such occasions. “Shazzam!”, decried Afro-Santa. And with one swish of his Afro Santa hand, he turned into a being of pure funk from Alpha Centauri, dressed like a future playa. Captain Blazar of Alpha Centauri Prime (Galaktik Federation) said: “Take these strange sounds and arrange them in a funk-tious manner. Add a throbbing beat so people can dance to it. Change your name from The Tractor Pimps to the Fractal Cowboys. And for galaxy’s sake, make it funky. Like West Psy Funky.” And this is how the Fractal Cowboys were born!

XIPIL
Red Marines / Shaman Electro Records San Francisco
Once upon a time in the far Northwestern part of Russia, a cosmic spiritual essence incarnated in a human form known as Alex Xipil. At an early age, he fell in love with electronic sounds which later progressed into a passion for techno music. Subsequently life’s path led him to the U.S., where he was introduced to psychedelic trance which immediately shared a place in his heart with techno. He started playing both styles of music at parties. The spectrum of his musical passion for the proper techno could be described as a blend of analog, vibrant sounds inspired by Detroit techno merging with deep, energetic bass lines influenced by German techno and a touch of mind-tickling, futuristic psychedelic sounds which take you on an acoustical journey.

STATICS
St. Petersburg, Russia
Statics was fortunate enough to be born in the right place and at the right time to feel and perceive all the vibes of intensely growing drum’n’bass culture in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. He dived into this movement in early 2000s, by the time when the city got an unofficial status of drum’n’bass capital of Russia. He played his first set in 2005 when he realized that “there are ideas and feelings one just can’t express any other way except to speak in a universal language of music”. Since this moment he has been involved in many parties playing on the same stage both with local and world famous drum’n’bass producers and DJs. In time, he developed his own style and tastes as well as a passion to turntablism. In his sets Statics combines ice and fire making consistent mixtures of melodic tunes and heavy rollers influenced by such artists as Goldie, Marky & XRS, LTJ Bukem, Calibre, M.I.S.T., Break and labels like Metalheadz, Symmetry, Good Looking, Human Elements and Innerground.
