Dance playground | Psytrance e arte

Dance playground, il luogo dove le coscienze si fondono e la psytrance è regina

La dance floor è il luogo dove le individualità si dissolvono, dove i cuori battono all’unisono, dove lo spirito si eleva e le coscienze si fondono. E’ la convergenza tra spirito, musica ed architettura; un’esperienza concreta in un mondo metafisico e la celebrazione della vita su questo pianeta nel nostro orizzonte temporale. E’ il momento autentico nel quale sperimentiamo la vera unità e il senso dell’essere qui ed ora, per uno stesso scopo. La musica elettronica è regina, ma lascia ampi spazi anche ai suoi vassalli; il sound system ci regalerà sensazioni di rock, techno, jazz e psytrance, in una commistione eclettica di generi e sperimentazioni.

    ''CAN WE REALLY HAVE REACHED -- 27 YEARS OF STATIC??''

    EARTHLINGS!!

    First,I have to thank you all for supporting Eat Static over the years,whether you're a new fan,or old...it has been my great pleasure to bring you crazy music that you seem to appreciate and to always be interested in,no matter WHAT i throw at ya! I'm always amazed at how deep some of this stuff touches you...so thank you all!

    Right,loads of you are probably wondering about the new elusive album..i can tell ya now,it's well on the way to being done,and it will definitely be a double album..it might even be pressed on vinyl as well this time,budgets permitting..
    CD 1 will feature more of the up-tempo banging tunes ,YES,there's some techno,YES,there's some Drum n Bass and YES,there is plenty of QUALITY 'ALIEN INFUSED' Trance..the mission with all the tracks this time,was to show that albums's are very much alive and well and STILL the most important thing to me and the main reason i have continued with Eat Static all these years..
    CD 2 will be a full length experimental downtempo offering.... you have been warned! I have recorded this album the old school way... ie - isolation,lots of old gorgeous analogue synths,and taking every single track as far as i could,with experimentation and trying new idea's out..I wanted to push forwards and make music worthy of the 21st century..consequently,it's THE most 'Static' sounding album since the early days...no commercial pressure,just pure love,sweat and literally,tears....both these CDs are VERY personal this time and every single tune on there has a part of my genetic code within it...

    You may also be interested to know that i have done a couple of collaborations for this release..for the banging trance stuff, i have Laughing Buddha,Chris Rich and Martian Arts all guesting..and boy, did we let loose! And on the downtempo stuff, I've worked with Georgina Brett,who specialises in Vocal Looping techniques and makes amazing ethereal music,Robbert Heijnen - former member of Psychick Warriors of Gaia and founder member of Exquisite Corpse, and Mik Singh, a new name on the scene..the sessions all went so well,i am already discussing do more with these characters..sublime!

    Also,there are some BIG anniversary shows planned to celebrate lasting this long and still being alive! Static is headlining some major festivals this summer,including BOOM festival in Portugal,Antaris in Germany,Sun Festival in Hungary,Lost Theory in Croatia,TIP festival in Israel,Off the Tracks in the UK,No Mans Land - Uk,and maybe even another Glastonbury might be on the cards..wherever i end up,I hope to see some of you,out and about...

    Some of you may also know,i did a few sample packs this past year,working alongside 2 of the top companies,Sample Magic and Loopmasters...be sure to check those out if you make music yourself...a lot of very 'unique' sounding samples are waiting for ya...

    Unless you have been living in a cave,you probably know i have also been doing regular radio slots for Radiozora..these will continue at roughly the rate of 2 a month,as i enjoy doing these immensely..and they seem to be going down better and better each month...so keep tuning in and i promise you're always going to hear interesting music plus loads of stuff from the golden ages of dance and beyond..i knew there was a reason i bought all those albums!

    Rumours for the future: Next album to follow the anniversary release is looking like a follow up to 'Back to Earth' with our good friends 'Interchill Records'..this album was so popular,they asked me back to record another one..it's gonna be a much different affair as i HATE to repeat myself! I shall be working alongside some wacky bizarre sounding musicians for that one,so watch out for that one in the future...

    I am also planning a new musical project,something with a much more old school vibe,and getting away from the trance to explore tribal rhythms and old school acid house..i also want to explore the possibilities of jamming whole gigs free style,with this stuff...watch this space!

    Transmission sent!

In May 2012 HypoGeo releases his first full length album "Tree of Lies" with Zenon records, the widely known Australian label. The album is a huge success by critics and fans for his particularly aggressive and heavy sound, thats built the bridge between the most deep and psychedelic trance (many says forest) and the actual Zenon sound. Doesn’t matter how you call it, it’s definitely something that you have to experience live catching the Hypo performance on a Festival or party around the world. HypoGeo is currently in the studio working on the 2nd full lenght album.

    GENESIA
    Catalyst Rcords

    GENESIA comes from 'Genesis', which is scientifically applied to an origin of something. The meaning of this concept will be particularly used though. When everything that human being currently can hear and see did not exist yet, when there was nothing, even the first particle, something happened. What formed all we can perceive was stunningly a sound, a totally tuneful one. As far back as that happened, basic and complex rythms of auditive range frequencies have been working; that "everything" has been constantly controlled by perfectly harmonic universe's lifelong sound oscillations. GENESIA is a 2-Architect project interested on modulating that kind of deep-seated sounds through a psychedelic progressive trance music style. Eriq Dyna [Disorder] & Antonio Resendiz [Ohm] have discovered how to put them into a powerful and addictive formula where the main characteristics are dynamic bases, cinematic atmospheres and a unique evolution of rythms among morning sounds and highly contagious groovy frequencies.

    Was in 2000 that Manuel Batista began to be deeply connected with music. Full of heavy tunes, from heavy metal to black, the love for music began, and the first connection to the music itself was when he began to learn guitar.
    Later in 2003 he "discovers" electronic music, Psy Trance, going at his first open air party. From that moment till then, his passion for electronic music grew exponentially.

    In 2005 he starts playing DJ set’s in some places just for fun, but a couple of years later, with the love of mixing reaching an higher level, things tends to be more serious and he began to play in some clubs, open air parties and bigger events.

    In 2012 he starts an advanced dj grade, that give him a more refined and technical vision of electronic music theory and production. In the same year, in order to go further, he starts an academic graduation in electronic music and musical production and since then share his time between production and mixing.

    His set's can follow several paths that may travel in the darker side of Psy Trance or can follow more groovy psychedelic trails. The order is to simply innovate and improve, no matter what kind of music style. Without rules or limits.


    Psydream is Ana Tavares from Portugal, her love for music began early, but it was in 2004 that she started to connect with Trance music. She started going to some parties and her love for trance began to grow, and one year after she experienced the environment of the big parties and the true feeling that music brings to people. Her first mixing experience was in 2009, just for fun. It was at this time that she began to realize the true pleasure of mixing and started playing in some small parties.
    In 2010 she was invited to play and show her work in big events and now the joy of playing to the crowd makes part of her life. In 2012 she joins Mind Experience team, a visionary and challenging label, and also in early 2013 she became part of the female label Magnetika Agency. In her sets she likes to create a psychedelic trip and tell a story through music, with amazing music sellection, making a journey between all the exquisite styles of the Psychedelic Trance. Music is Life!

    An adventurous spirit and the determination to contribute and enrich the spanish psytrance scene led him in 2014 to found the Own Spirit collective and a year later the label with the same name, already it has interesting artists and a place in the psytrance scene.

    With Own Spirit collective he has materialized one of his greatest wishes: created psichedelic meetings.

This leads to a sharp and drastic departure from every type of genre and musical form. After another year and going to one of his first party to bring you back to the music, in particular, is a very good feeling with the electronic one, so much so that 16 years back on his feet and buy the first console and try DJing.
