Deep Progressive Psy

Pulsewave, the new project from Kri aka Sonance, is a blending of psychedelic trance styles. With a progressive tempo, but flavored with the hypnotic layers of acid and complex synthwork, PulseWave brings a complete aural experience. Grains of Sand is a 3 track EP that kicks off with Wave after Wave, an euphoric lifter that rises like the morning sun over the cosmic ocean. Scared is Scared follows up with a deep trance sound, with long pads and a low bass breakdown perfect for peak times on the dancefloor. Oldschool trance infused with modern progressive psy, whats not to love? The last track, Grains of Sand is the culmination of this debut release. Plucky acid rains down from above, while a tribal drum kick bangs on the ground below. Tension builds as the ego is compressed, just waiting for that moment of psychedelic release.

The sound he creates through his live act Annunaki is being heralded around the planet and is breathing simmering new life into the Trance world as if the music is propelled by a dragon high on Kundalini yoga. Kri’s superb intuition for playing to the human element produces a dance floor experience of complete immersion, of carnal union with the velvety flow of the beat, the body, the bass, the boom. Whether spinning a DJ set or performing a live set of his own compositions, Kri brings us music that forces us to remember why we are alive and to give thanks for every nuance of that sacred gift.

Annunaki
Touch Samadhi
Goa/Psytrance
Asheville, NC

The Annunaki first arrived on Earth probably 450,000 years ago, seeking an exotic beat to facilitate their trance states. Eventually we came to call them by many names, such as “the Nephilim” in Genesis, or simply “gods”. Whichever they are, they genetically engineered Homo Sapiens as perfect biological machines for dancing by crossing extraterrestrial genes with those of Homo erectus. Still incomplete, the machines required new patterns and rhythms to function to their fullest potential. So the “gods” searched, and waited, eventually finding the patterns and rhythms in Goa, India, where they studied and recorded these new patterns of mental concentration. Now their research has come to a close as the Annunaki prepare to enact their creations. Are they gods of good, or gods of evil?

Iduna
Touch Samadhi
psy chill/ spiritual/ world music
Asheville, NC

Upon hearing psychedelic trance, Iduna became deeply transfixed. It was pure magic and spiritually transcending. As one of the founding members of Touch Samadhi, she lent the name to the collective wanting to invoke a higher consciousness to the events.
She saw a need to bring ancient, tribal music to the scene and connect people with their roots. She weaves authenic world music with vocals, drumming and downtempo beats. She also plays goa sets and wants to return full on psychedelic music to the dancefloor and offer people a true experience.

Ama-Gi
Psychill/Downtempo
Hillsborough NC

Ama-Gi started as just a kid with an obsession with music. Starting with drums and guitar. Ama-Gi was forged in metal, but transformed by psychedelic music. Like a mad scientist had to learn more and experiment with sound after discovering in a life changing moment Shpongle. Eventually, G.M.S. , Infected Mushroom (older stuff), Astral Projection and many others led Ama-Gi deeper into psychedelic music. Ama-Gi’s decent into the underground and ascension to the art of DJing started in a way no one believed in at first. Going from samplers with a good ear, to being lucky enough to try other DJ methods Ama-gi has learned to DJ and work with the dance floor. Now with a drive to help people dance and lose themselves to the music, Ama-Gi comes forth from the shadows to play and dance. Now it’s time for Ama-Gi to show what they can do.

Bass Love – inSpiral Lounge, London, UK

September 19, 2014 9:30 pmtoSeptember 20, 2014 1:30 am

Our September edition of Bass Love falls at the Autumnal Equinox, a time to mark the end of summer and a beginning of colder, quieter months. We’ll be shaking off the last of the dust from our summer travels and preparing for the darker parts of the year, while we celebrate life with bass vibrations!

This edition of Bass Love also brings with it the London debut of Sonasha, a new glitch-hop production from Jon Sangita, as well as a special guest set from Damon (Chillumafia) visiting from Poland by way of Glesgie – it will certainly be a night to remember!

More information about the bass cadets:

DJ Nod is based out of Brixton, observing and participating in the global bass music scene both at home in London and through his world-wide travels. Since his move from the USA in 2009 he has played events across the globe, ranging in size from massive festivals such as OZORA and Hadra to smaller events in the US, Europe, and Japan. During this time he has become known for his smooth mixing and heavily psychedelic track selection, skirting around the edges of dubstep and other bass-driven music to procure a wide range of sub-shaking sounds.

Sonasha is the new project of UK Based Producer and DJ Jon Barron, His crunkadelic dub sound is full of good vibes and inspired by his love of Shamanism and his journeys through the multiple dimensions of possibility. Jon has been active on the Psychedelic scene for over 15 years and was a promoter of the legendary Psubliminal Psychedelia parties in the early 90s. Since then has been producing tracks for labels such as Sangita Sounds, Dubmission and Ajnavision as well as playing out at various global psychedelic festivals including Boom, Sonica, Ozora, Universo Paralello, Sunrise, Glade & Noisily.

Damon started spinning records in the mid 90s being involved in the acid techno/hard energy scene (and later nu school breaks and goa trance) in Poland. Moving to Chicago in 2000 he connected to the sound oozing out of the West Coast. The slow breaks resonating on the [email protected] Man defined a shift to the downtempo psychedelic spectrum. In 2005 he met Yidam from India and Robyo from the States both chillout DJs. The three of them started playing back to back at parties in the Midwest. Being notorious for their opinion on sound and spinning darker heavier dubby sounds on the chill stage they started being referred to as the Chillumafia. Of course the name stuck and the organizers included the Chillumafia affiliation. Chillumafia sound today is a mix of hedonistic grooves from the West and chill beats from the East expressed with a range of styles from ambient to dance, from traditional to futuristic, bringing remixes, live production and guest musicians into the sound system.

Noisily Festival – Leicestershire, UK

July 11, 2014toJuly 13, 2014

Set deep in the rolling hills of Leicestershire in the heart of rural England, Noisily Festival of Electronic Music and Arts lies in one of the most beautiful wooded valleys in the country. Totally contained amongst the trees creating a safe haven where hedonism and escapism can flourish and thrive, Noisily Festival 2014 will play host to some of the most exciting musical talent from the UK and abroad, along with a plethora of performance, innovative installations and mind bending visual arts.You can expect to hear an extremely diverse collection of music; ranging from Electro, Glitch and Breaks, through House and Disco, via the Noisily mainstay of Progressive Techno, to the considerably beefed up Psychedelic line up with the traditional Psychedelic Sunday now including Friday and Saturday as well.

2014 sees the expansion of the site and arrival of the infamous Liquid Stage; after a decade at the sorely missed Glade Festival, Liquid Records has found a new spiritual home amongst the kindred spirits and like-minded ravers in sunny Leicestershire.

Across 3 main areas and a smattering of nano stages; below vast ceilings of woodland décor pulsing to the sound of kicking basslines, shredded in two by laser beams and shards of light; amongst the sound of laughter and a sea of smiles, boredom will be a word soon forgotten.
