LANI
(Kairoo Records, Belgium)

After a short, well deserved, break, in which they fine tuned their studio and did some rmx work from Xerox, Chi-Ad…. the guys are back in full effect and the concept for the new album is formed, ready to be cooked and served. Expected release, Nov 2007. Also on stage some changes came about: A new drummer joined the band and for sure this guy knows how to handle his sticks! A perfect edition to bring the live element of these guys in an extra spotlight. Lani, now with a massive setup on stage, is creating a unique live show, not easy to forget. With this new live edit, some fresh dance floor anthems and some unique remixes, this is perfect if you want the place to rock and roll!!

Phasid (Lani/Kairoo Records)

The other part of Lani! Being a musician since his early days, having a serious background in the mid nineties techno scene, Phasid knows perfectly well how to play a dancefloor and to create sonic mayham! His style is more puristic and concentrates mainly on straight full on sounds, morning and night… No discussion, no other way than his way beyond any doubt!!

Bonas and Darsim (Dacru Records/Mental Gymnastics)

Thes guys are no strangers in the psyscene. Active more then five years in organising and decoration force 'Mental Gymnastics', this dynamic duo combined their skills several times behind the decks. From progressive to tight psytrance and beyond, they spin you all around!!

Kairon (Kairoo Records)
Founder and general manager of Kairoo Records.Thanks to an impressive background as dj in the electronic dance and club scene, this guy is the right man on the right place…any time of the night and any place on the planet. With a wide selection going from groovy progressive into night time psychedelic and heavenly morning trance, he can lift you up with a stashbag going back more then ten years in the history of psychedelic trance and even further…

Belgian Live Connection

Bitkit


As a child, Gunter Wyckmans fascination for music was very strong. It didn’t take long before he learned how to play all kinds of instruments, such as drums, piano, Trumpet, djembé.
Five years ago, he discovered the psychedelic side of electronic music and was overwhelmed by its sound and possibilities. His production in the meantime evolved to top notch level, bringing a combination of massive trance anthems with the power of kickass psytrance music... His tracks have devastated many dance floors all around the world, his debut Ep got licensed several times, hit the top at the charts, settled there for quite some time and. the new album ‘Logical’, to be released on Kairoo in March, will create a major shockwave in the trance scene. For sound samples,please check

Sanka
In 1996, Sanka started producing. He grew alongside the Belgian Psy-scene, exploring the boundaries of psytrance with his Drum and Bass background. Always experimenting with rhythm and percussive elements Sanka has developed his own groovy style: Bouncy but intelligent and sensitive psytrance with a twist…

As long as psytrance has existed in Belgium, Sanka has been a psytrance producer. In fact, Sanka was the very first Belgian producer to play live sets on parties and he was one of the very first Belgian psytrance artists to actually publish some work. The past 10 years, Sanka kept surprising the psytrance scène with original and fresh music.

Connected to some of the most legendary psytrance crews in Belgium, like Taboo Productions (DJ Aorta), Senseblender and the Drona-crew, Sanka gained respect from the “Big Players“ in the Belgian and international Psytrance scène.

Morphix
The artist behind Morphix is Joff Snissaert. He started playing his Casio synth as a kid, at the age of 9. When he was 13, he met someone who introduced him to goa music, and at the age of 14 he found himself infected with a virus called psytrance. He started dj'ing in his free time and when he didn’t go to school he was playing psytrance all day long. At 15 he got his first music program : Propellorhead's Reason In the meantime, after a lot of work and time he created a style of his own: it’s not dark, it’s not melodic, it’s not fast, neither slow... it’s powerfull but not too powerfull. Find out for yourself as he now rocks the dancefloor with hard pounding kicks, wicked basslines and crazy darkish tunes...

Ephedrix

And that's what Ephedrix is all about: psytrance with uplifting melodies, groovy percussion, crystal clear bass lines and a pumping sound. Their unique style was quickly picked up by various Belgian party organisations and now Ephedrix is a respected and popular live act in the Belgian scene. As residents in various party concepts they had the chance to play next to big acts and dj ..s like: Ticon, Silicon sound, Joti Sidhu, Space Buddha, Nomad, Dino Psaras, Bizzare contact, Vibe Tribe and many more..
At the end of 2005 Ephedrix joined the Dacru artists in their ..Avenida de Bélgica.. Mexico tour, spreading their sound all over Mexico with the New Years festival in Cancun and the Magic festival in Guadalajara as highlights. In these parties they were on the line-up with acts such as Pixel, Gataka, Chakra, Time Lock, Sesto Sento, Electrosun and many others.

Whicked Hayo

Whicked Hayo started to produce psychedelic trance in 2003, and have played as far afield as Greece, Spain, and Romania, as well as closer to home in France and the Netherlands. They have appeared at festivals including Fullmoon (Germany), Freaky Dragons (Spain) and many more.
Their style can best be described as night-time psytrance - a unique sound that's a change from the usual, with unexpected breaks, and powerful basslines and climaxes.
Well-loved and respected on the Belgian scene, Whicked Hayo can make a dancefloor explode with their warm, high quality production.
In 2007 you can expect many new releases on labels all over the globe - from Japan to San Francisco, as well as the Fullmoon Festival DVD (BNE, Israel). They have tracks forthcoming on Ketuh Records (Vienna), Psybertribe Records (USA), from July 2006.
