Ticon are Filip Mårdberg and Fredrik Gilenholt, a Swedish progressive/psychedelic trance project. With a deep background in the techno scene they started playing around on their computer in 1995 and this step brought them along many paths they hadn't dreamed of. The experience acquired along the way has switched the scene from the amateur thing of the beginning to the standard of today; an acclaimed production with an exquisite feeling for sounds and percussion. The project Ticon was started in 1999 as a natural progression towards something new and they soon got the attention deserved. Their unique style walks the thin line between trance and psytrance with crossover excursions on both sides. This gives the album a variation from the floorfilling to the hipswinging funky but they all emit the Ticon sound and the message to be happy and to be loosin it to the music. They have released 4 LP’s on Digital Structures: “Rewind” (2001), “Aero” (2003), “Zero Six After” (2005), and “2 am” (2008), their double album "I Love You, Who Are You" released on Iboga Records, and "Ticon Remixed" their most recent release on Iboga Records featuring remixes to classic Ticon tracks by an assortment of producers in the scene.

Dado aka Frédéric Holyszewski repeatedly woos crowds and longtime fans to the beat of his new productions. Ranging from solo project Deedrah, to his collaborations including Krome Angels and Transwave, he stands to face anywhere between 5 to 30 thousand eager fans at each gig!!. Once in the scene in the mid 90’s as a self-made rock band, Vision Quest, Dado met Christophe Drouillet with whom he would form the legendary group Transwave. In only 2 years they reached mind blowing success releasing 4 full length albums in total. The duo gained first hand experience selling and producing the entire CDs themselves from creating the sleeves, recording the albums, and even directing the first video for the international trance hit “Land of Freedom”.

As if not enough, Dado created another alias “SYNTHETIC” first releasing the fantastic Metalgear with TWISTED Rds, then releasing the first album on SOLSTICE MUSIC. The Dado snowball picked up momentum growing like an avalanche and he, together with DMT NAKOV and SERGE SOUQUE of Total Eclipse came together to form GBU (The Good, The Bad & The Ugly ) still playing at the most important festivals of the techno scene: Sonica, The Glade Mother and Solstice Music Festival in Tokyo. Dado kept busy through contracts with Sony to compose the opening tune and sound effects of the ps2 game Grand Turismo3.
