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 psychedelic trance è la sonorità regina di questo spazio. Le sue sfumature progressive, full-on, twilight, forest, darkpsy e hi-tech ci trasporteranno in una commistione di generi e sperimentazioni uditive allo stesso tempo eclettiche e coerenti.
- KALYA SCINTILLAMerkaba MusicAUSTRALIAKALYA SCINTILLAMerkaba Music
Australian Music Producer and Founder of Merkaba Music, Kalya (Ka –lee- yah) Scintilla ( Sin–till –ah) has always had a love for music; playing in garage bands, banging on drum kits, spinning vinyl in the night clubs of Sydney and getting down to funk! Kalya had a knowing one night listening to one of the most profound pieces of visionary music from the legendary Herbie Hancock, that his soul’s mission was to make music his life’s devotion.
Soon after this experience he enrolled himself into a two year audio engineering course and eventually left the city to work on music in the country deep into nature.
Taking on small part time jobs to get him by, he made his sole focus and time dedicated to honing his craft.
He signed on with Zenon records in 2009 putting him on the map inside the psy-trance world with his first project, Merkaba.
His second project, Kalya Scintilla made it to the top ten on Addictech charts in the same year and by 2011 he was touring the U.S. west coast. Kalya Scintilla took hold in the United States as dance floors were all a buzz about the masterful style in which Kalya was throwing down squelchy funky grooves that were uniquely deep and hypnotic.
In 2012 he began collaborating with artist Eve Olution inside the album Open Ancient Eyes. New elements took root as these two worked in the studio to add detailed nuances to weave the current mythos of our time within the music. This album is the first of three inside a trilogy dedicated to our human journey, this planet, and our connection to creation itself.
Today both Kalya Scintilla and Merkaba are renowned throughout almost every continent on the planet and the popularity of both projects are growing as more & more people are connected with the deep seeded intention of every song.

- RASTALIENSBoom RecordsGERMANYRASTALIENSBoom Records
Since about 20 years we are involved into the Psytrance Scence.
After 3 years with dj-ing, we realised, that the records from other people were not enough for us. And look at this, since about 9 years we are producing our own psychedelic trance. We started in a small cellar with a little soundsystem. At the beginning we just used simple software-synthies and a small sequenzer-programm.
Because of our limited possiblities, it was not easy for us to produce a good quality of sound...Hard work and a lot of enthusiasm caused a booking from some friends in Switzerland. They wanted us for a live-act. Jehaa, our first set, which we played with some quite old synthies, as like Roland 101 and Korg Trident. As you can understand, we were more than nervous. But we were more than happy, that the feedback of our first act was really great and amazing.. So, we decided to go ahead with our crazy music. The time and the more bookings opened us the chance to buy some new sound-machines.
On a special day, we decided to send our first songs to some differnt labels around the world. Wepacked this CD´s together with all our positive vibrations 😉 and what happend: Yaniv, from Hadshot Haheizar released our first two songs. "FREAK BOOSTER" and "UNIDENTIFIED SPECIES". A big thank you to you, Yaniv! We guess, we do not have to explain you our feeling, as we hold our first vinyl in our hands. Unbelievable.....
After playing on many parties around the globe, like Portugal, Netherland, Mexico, Greece, USA, UK, Brazil, South Africa etc. there was time for an album which was released also on Hadshot and more to ome on Boom! Rec., Digital Psionics, Ketuh, Glowing Flame, Phar Psyde Records and so on......
