:::: TRON LIVE (Zero1 Music, Mexico) ::::
Tron’s style is unique in psychedelic trance, with fusions that go from morning funky to the most psychedelic consistent sounds; which makes his style fit anytime on the dancefloor. Born in 1981 in Mexico City, he has a long carreer on classical guitar. He started producing trance in early 2000 and 2 years later he was playing in clubs and gatherings all around Mexico. His first release Existence was released with Liquid Records, based in London in January 2006, and had raving reviews and excellent feedback. His second full lenght Bio-Logic was released on 2009 placing him fully on the international scope as one of the leading figures in the trance scene worldwide. Between his colaboration projects there is "The ART conspiracy" (with Psymmetrix), "Blind Roller" (with Mood Deluxe), "Floating Point" (with Dj Pollyfonika), and a couple more within other styles of dance music. He has collaborated with lots of artists and played in countless festivals, and clubs all over the world!!
:::: PARUS LIVE (AuraQuake, SF) ::::
Parus is a psychedelic trance music project of twin brothers Mark and Valentin Tarasov that was born in the summer of 2000. This is their story…
While growing up in Riga, the capital city of Latvia, Valentin Tarasov was attending musical school, learning piano, Mark was learning guitar. After the break-up of the Soviet Union, they moved to California, where in 1996 together with their older brother Eugene they formed a Russian rock band called Still Night, with Valentin on the keyboard and Mark playing the bass guitar. Soon after, they were introduced to trance music and the idea of Parus was born. It began with turntables in a Palo Alto apartment, evolving into a semi-professional studio in the garage of their house. By September of 2000, they were writing their own tracks as project Parus took sail. Parus has performed on numerous stages in America, Portugal and Japan, including the amazing performances at the Boom Festival in Portugal, Burning Man Festival, Pulse Family Gathering and the annual LoveFest in San Francisco.
:::: PSYNTHETIC (Aphid Records/Pulse SF)
Paul Scott has been a DJ and promoter since 1999 in San Francisco, California. He founded the g.o.a.Play collective that same year which was responsible for producing the now legendary Eclipse Massive, the Taco Portal weekly and the Gratitude Festival early in the decade. Psynthetic has more than ample experience and passion for throwing down a monstrous set or producing a ridiculously epic party and his musical journeys have allowed him to share the stage with some of the biggest and best psytrance producers in the world. Joining forces in late 2010 to create PULSE SF with Boston's own Infinite Sun and g.o.a.Play resident Tobal. The PULSE SF collective has already established a reputation for creating masterfully produced psytrance events like the PULSE FAMILY GATHERING which are being praised world wide. Signing on with Aphid Records out of the UK in 2011 and firmly in his second decade as a DJ and promoter, Psynthetic is poised to show his dance floor blasting talents to an ever growing national audience!
:::: GATTO MATTO (Greensector, CA) ::::
Gatto Matto has been a DJ since 2004, though he is first and foremost an avid dancer and lover of music. He had the privilege of joining the legendary Green Sector collective in early 2005. Since then he has become an accomplished and multi-faceted psy and progressive DJ who can play any time slot day or night. Gatto discovered psychedelic trance first at the Burning Man festival in 2001 and began attending underground psy parties in Los Angeles the following year. After the many ecstatic and transformational experiences he had while dancing to LA’s psy DJs and international acts coming through town, he decided to become a DJ himself with the intention of creating similar kinds of experiences for others. He has an extensive collection of music, a very keen ear for track selection, top notch ability to mix music together harmonically, structurally and emotionally, and an intuitive sense of how to weave a story together across different styles. His gigs cover a lot of terrain including black rock desert, the mojave, the mountains of California, various beach and outdoor locations, underground and club events, and has played abroad in Mexico, Europe and central Asia.
:::: GIZMA (Mexico) ::::
Born in Mexico, grew up in San Francisco California, where she lived most of her childhood. Starting going back and forth to Mexico ever since. Being musically inclined, living in SF, gave her an eclectic ear, between the colorful cultural diversity of both countries, being influenced by psychedelic rock, alternative rock, new age, world dance music, pop, R & B, jazz, blues and mexican traditional music. The dj bug hit when she went to her first open air psychedelic trance party near Mexico city where she fell in love with electronic music and the dancefloor. With the guidance of friends who were djs and producers she learned how to get the beat flowing on cdjs, mixers and software midi controllers. Started mixing in house parties, open air gathering and clubs, 6 years ago. Sharing the stage with artists like Han Solo, System Nipel, Tube, Sesto Sento, Neelix, Interactive Noise, Victor Ruiz and Lamat. Currently producing her own tracks with the training of the Pyramind Music Production Studios in SF. Experimenting with the amazing world of sound in a broad spectrum of electronic music genres such as; house, techo-house, progressive-house, trance, progressive trance and psychedelic trance.
