      • Frantic Noise 02H00 Dark Prisma Records (AR)

        Frantic appears not as something that is frenetically out of control but in relation to the shamanical state of consiousness reached colectivelly during a ceremony. Nois-e: Nois equals 'us' in portuguese, and in english is usually defined as some unwished or non intentional sound and therefore, as the opposite of music.

        Frantic Noise is Matias Benamo, born in Buenos Aires in May of 1984. From the beginning he developed high interest in technology, computers and music. His productions are easy to recognize and characterized by the fusion of different textures of music. Solid production, strong rhythms, rolling basslines, mind-bending atmospheres built in with complex synthworks result into deep & colourful journeys through sound, making it a perfect live performance for night or twilight hours, as well as for home listening.

        In 2002 he started producing trance music in colaboration with Filter in a project called Megalopsy. After the release of their debut album The Abstract Machine by Trishula Records, and several other tracks in other compilations, z1P and Filter founded Dark Prisma Records (darkprisma.com.ar), a label focused mainly on releasing fresh psychedelic tunes. His debut album as Frantic Noise, The Nordland Orchestra released by Dark Prisma Records on July '06 bombed the dancefloors around Europe and had a very positive reaction in all the psy freaks around the world. Including awesome reviews by Damion and Death Posture.

      • Megalopsy 02H00 Dark Prisma Records (AR)

        Megalopsy is Filtro and Zipriano a psychedelic exploration born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2002, focused on creating musical potions designed to awake the user into awareness. Combining influences from life, nature, travels in inner and outer space, Megalopsy uses music as a tool to shape and enhance perception, exploring a wide spectrum of sound dimensions, materializing them in a psychedelic audible format, suitable for dancefloors and home-listening. Their style is unique and powerful, very easy to recognize in their productions and live performances taking its listeners to a deep psychedelic journey where other dimensions are unfolded and new realities are explored.

        After their debut album, The Abstract Machine, released by Trishula Records in 2005, they have opened their way in the local and international scene, proving the potential of the Latin American and Argentinian psychedelic trance. They have toured extensively around Latin America and Europe playing in many festivals and parties since 2006 and they continue to work on building their local scene in Argentina through parties, workshops and websites.

        In 2005 they noticed a lot of new artists were appearing in Buenos Aires so they decided to start Dark Prisma Records, a label created for nursing Argentinian and Alien psytrance. This is the home of new artists such as Pandora's Box, Will O' Wisp and Glosolalia. They also have their solo projects, z1priano is doing Frantic Noise , and filtr0 is doing Zigurat. filtr0 also works with Pandora's Box as Abyss Ooze and as Prisma for downtempo experiments.

      • Scope 01H00 Lost Theory

        Scope is a Belgian psytrance project by Yannick Thiry and MadeInRealtime. After years of experimenting and writing tracks the Scope project was born.

        Although the sound is a reflection of both technical skills and subjective understanding, this full spectral tweaked trance music will take you trough time and space! It's a true progressive trance feeling expressed in dark timbres and frequency-modulated patterns. Made for the dance-floor!

      • Yani 06H30 Suntrip Records

        My name is Yani and goa-trance is my passion since I am 15 years old. After a few years of listening non-stop to this heavenly music I started as a dj in 2009.

        My favourite style is highly danceable melodic goa-trance, but in the morning I love to play more floating stuff as well. In the darker hours I can play more acidic, evil psychedelic goa-trance if that is wanted.

        In Belgium I am playing a lot since 2009 and this resulted in gigs on notorious parties such as Old is Gold, Troubles in Paradise, Suntrip Label Parties and even Once Upon A Festival. Many more gigs happened on more underground goa-parties.

        I am very motivated to play on parties and organisers can be sure I will always give the best of myself!

      • Strophoria 23H30 Unio Mystica

      • R'Deem 22H00 Naturall Productions, Purple Snow

        Roscoe Deem has been interested in music for as long as he can remember. Growing up listening to artist like The Doors, Pink Floyd, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Paradise Lost... He slowly developed his own taste in music and came in contact with electronic dance music at age of 16. Attending big techno parties he soon realized what a big part of the course of his life would be!

        His journey started out as a techno dj, where he mastered the skills needed to be a dj. After three years of playing raw pounding techno at established parties and playing beside artists like dj Rush, Claude Young and Marco Bailey his taste in music was changing and looked for newer horizons! He found the answers he was looking for in the more psychedelic and progressive scene to which he was introduced at the end of 2001.

        Nowadays he is definately one of the more frequently asked dj's in the Belgian progressive trance scene and one of the founding fathers of the Belgian progressive community with the Purple Snow Productions parties. His dj-bag is stashed with a wide selection of music, ranging in styles going from Electro, minimal, progressive house and psychedelic progressive to Psychedelic full-on : he knows how to use the right kind of track at the right kind of time… With gigs at Eargasm Open Air, Tshitraka (Ger), Indian Spirit (Ger), Experience/new year festival 2009 and 2010 (Koh Toa - Thailand), Ban Sabaii , Blackmoon Culture, Shivamoon, Jungle Experience (Koh Panghan - Thailand), Happy (Bel) and Tomorrowland (Bel) to show for.

      • Massimo Girardi 00H00 Aella Music, Rawthectic Music, Labyrinth Prod.

        Massimo Girardi, son of Italian parents and born in Belgium got in touch with music about 20 years ago. At the age of 11, he got his first dose of dance music and at age 14, he bought first compilation cd’s that featured hits from the biggest house clubs in Belgium and Ibiza. But it wasn’t until the age of 18, when he quit his professional football career with Anderlecht, that Massimo began to experience the true magic of house music. It was at this point that he realized music was his everything.

        At 19 years of age, he began performing in clubs and parties all over Belgium. He then realized that the only way to break the mold was to begin working on his very own productions. He soon teamed up with long time friend Hermanez and together they released his first EP on Monique Musique which was charted and supported by names such as Marco Carola, Gregor Tresher, Brothers’ Vibe to name a few.

        Nowadays, Massimo can be seen at some of the finest parties in Europe including the world famous “Circo Loco” parties in Belgium and Holland. He has had the pleasure to share the decks with artists such as Tanzmann, Carola, Arpiar, Zip, Baby Ford, Tania Vulcano, Jose de Divina and many more. Apart from his busy studio sessions and vigorous touring schedule, Massimo is also the current resident at Belgium’s famous Café d’Anvers.

      • Fady One 01H30 Zukunft

        Having always been passionate about music, Fady One started mixing in 2004. Encouraged by a friend to play her music Fady One immediately felt comfortable behind the mixing desks. However, it was not until three years later, with the launch of her first club night, that she took mixing more seriously.

        On a musical note, Fady One doesn’t want to define her style. She mixes what appeals to her and doesn’t want to feel restricted by classifications. Listening to music, she says, is like listening to people. It is a very personal thing and you can hear how the music whispers to you, talks to you, shouts at you or even cries. She compares discovering a new piece of music to meeting a person: with some people you feel an immediate connection. A few may even fascinate or bewitch you, whereas others appear to be empty and you are just not tuned to the same wavelength.

        Having always liked to organise events she felt that her own club night would not only be a fun thing to do but also give her the opportunity to play the music she likes for a bigger audience. Having started with less than 150 guests in a small bar in 2007, Soirées Secrètes (renamed Zukunft in March 2009) quickly developed into one of the most popular club nights in Brussels. The soirée is designed to offer artists the chance to express themselves and to share their passion for music and art with like-minded people. As a matter of fact, Zukunft regularly invites guest DJs, other musicians and bands as well as all sorts of artists who get the chance to expose their works. Amongst them were Undo, Spada, Luciano Pizzella, Davis & May, Opuswerk, Max Cooper, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Nhar, Pierre, Cora Novoa, Van Hai, Deg, Darko... .

        In Brussels Fady One mixes at events such as Piknikelektronik, No Code, Wunderbar, Statik Dancing, Brussels4Paris, Vert Pop, Summer Club, Apéros Urbains and Tilt. Furthermore, she regularly plays in different locations amongst them are Café Central, Wax Club, Fuse, the Wood, Bozar, K-nal, Café Bota, Club des Halles, Mirano and Ancienne Belgique.

      • Madriko 22H00 Roots of Minimal, Plug In

        Madriko a.k.a. Korneel Glorieux was born and raised in a small village near Ostend (Belgium). It all began at the young age of 9, when he started playing classical guitar, mostly Spanish & Southern American music.

        After 10 years music school he went to the Conservatory of Music in Ghent, where he studied classical guitar and composition for 3 years. In his early teenage years, he already started exploring other instruments like keyboard, percussion and electric guitar in a few bands. It is obvious that he was influenced by a great deal of genres..

        Since 2007, Mádriko also spins the decks (minimal, minimal-house, tech-house, jackin' house) and took his first steps to produce his own electronic tracks. In 2009, he had his first chances to play in club 'Decadance' in his current hometown Ghent, where he now often plays. Other places and venues where he played are Silo, Braempoort, Tijuana, Montuno's, Latin Quarter, Club Basic, Appart K-Fée (Reims/France)...

      • Beazar aka Cole 22H00 Roots of Minimal, Plug In

        Now is the time for fresh tunes, filled with tight bassdrums, pushing basses, driving rythms and fancy melodies. Is this your thing, I'm your man - if it ain't your thing, you should consider changing religion real soon!

        He'll not only play these tracks just for you, he'll make 'm and even get artists from different parts in the world to come and play them for you. In other words, he deejays, produces and promotes parties that welcome the breakthrough artists of this time. The parties are thrown within the common denominator "Komprez".

        Under his previous alias "Cole" he has played in nearly every Belgian club and passed over stages of several festivals such as the Joe Piler stages on Rock Werchter, Dour, Les Ardentes, ... suck on that!

        So there you go, time for something new, first class electronic music, cooked to perfection, served ice cold and finished with a killer side dish!

      • Dragos Rusu 01H30 Beatfactor (RO)

        When pondering about the reason as to why we indulge in music in general, Dragos Rusu (Reald Drum) realized that there was no particular reason behind it. Individuals who have the ability to comprehend proper dance music should consider themselves a part of an elite group.

        DJs who can paint the dance room with his or her music are rare and those who possess the power to control the crowd with world class precision, they are the masters who are respected and loved.

        He avoids judging musical styles since music can be defined as individual preference. It is also a form of art. We should all be open to new sounds and styles. His sets mirror his life. It is like an autobiography.

        Dragos Rusu likes coffee and cigarettes for no particular reason. He was born in the North Eastern of Romania and lately he moved to Bucharest to study Journalism and Sciences of Communication. For a few years now, he is the main editor and co – founder of Beat Factor (along side with his brother, Andrei), an international dance music online magazine (www.beatfactor.net).

      • Turntable Dubbers 02H00 Nice up! Records

        ELECTRONICS vs IRIE VIBRATIONS

        With four hands on two decks and a lot of bravado, Timaxx & Drezz bring you a steamy blend of dub, roots, reggae, breaks and jungle, ragga, afro-, balkan- and latin-beats and other pieces of funkiness. Uptempo irie indeed.

        Their biographies (see below) can merely hint at it, but their knowledge of history of dance and world music -in particular of the bonds that tie those two together- is immense, as are their DJ skills and their love for a jolly good party.

        The Dubbers often take things to the musical underground, and then they'll make sure that their set appeals to the sometimes rather peculiar tastes of its inhabitants. But fear not, The Turntable Dubbers can turn into demagogic jocks as well because at heart, they are true populists who just love to please the crowd.

        In any case, they will always give you one hell of a party, carefully adding yet another beat or spaced-out echo to their musical mélange. This blend of styles is cooked to a climactic frenzy which will bring the audience to the very edge of rapture.

      • Gaetano Fabri 00H00 Blue Gypsy

        Balkan , gypsy , jazz , funk , electro

        Impassioned jazz musician and percussionist from Brussels, DJ Gaetano Fabri popularizes gypsy music through the club scenes throughout Europe by blending clubbing culture with traditional music. Since 1991, known then under the name of dj Gaetan Decadance, Fabri was spinning on the techno house circuit of Belgium and France.

        But in 2000 he started his love affair with world music and began to fuse traditional music from the Tzigane or 'Gypsy' culture, Balkan brass bands of Eastern Europe, Klezzmer and Russian folk song.

        Fabri's remix of Siki Siki Baba by Kocani Orkestar, without a doubt the most incredible brass band Macedonian of this century, appears on the first volume of the now hugely popular Electric Gypsyland series and is a dancefloor favourite. A resident since 2005 at Divan du Monde (Paris) where, with his colleagues such as Dj Tagada and DJ Click, musical explorations rooted in gypsy culture hit the dancefloor.

        Fabri's desire to bring to life nights entirely dedicated to the culture of the Balkans on the international club circuit (Paris, Brussels, Barcelona...), brings him around the world touring both as a solo artist and with the magnificent Mahala Rai Banda from Romania.

      • Thiaz Itch 05H00 Proot Records (FR)

        Half-way between space-moogy-electronics and infantile naivety, this unstable character tells the musical stories of his coloured and toony universe. By his eclectic influences and his sound research, he intersects marrowy atmospheres and diabolic rhythmics, metal aggressiveness and puerile happiness, for finally producing a musical flow in constant mutation.

        He creates his own label Proot records with Tep and goto80 in 2006, so that funny, happy, funky and original music has its own place.
