ELECTRIC UNIVERSE @ Freedom Festival 2019

Electric Universe is a psychedelic trance project from Germany formed by Boris Blenn and Michael Dressler in 1991.

Their first EP release, Solar Energy was an instant hit with the underground trance scene and is often credited with putting the Spirit Zone Recordings label at the forefront of psychedelic trance early on.

According to The Sofia Echo, they were “hailed in the 1990s as one of the top psychedelic trance projects to come out of Germany.

ALPHA PORTAL @ Freedom Festival 2019

Few karmic meetings in the studio resulted in Alpha Portal’s big bang birth. It set brothers-in-sound Avi Shmailov (aka Astrix) and Yoni Oshrat (aka Ace Ventura) on a promising path to become one of the scene’s most successful electronic music acts.

They enhanced their music to the highest psychedelic reaches and through their amazing on-stage performances, Avi & Yoni will create unforgettable dance floor moments. This is the perfect union of musical minds with a mutual belief in border-free psy trance music.

AARDVARKK @ Freedom Festival 2019

Aardvarkk is the solo psytrance project of Nigel Shiva Valley, a medium-sized, burrowing nocturnal mammal with a long pig-like snout used to sniff out food. He roams over most of the southern two-thirds of the African continent, avoiding mainly rocky areas. A nocturnal feeder, he subsists on ants and termites, which he digs out of their hills using his sharp claws and powerful legs.

In his spare time he writes groovy psychedelic tunes for the night time, and does all kinds of other cool shit.

PARASENSE @ Freedom Festival 2019

Parasense is the name of a dark psytrance duo (Alexey Kurkin and Victor Zolotarenko) from Russia. The name is a short for “Paranoic Sensations”. They played their first international gig at the Eclipse Festival in Hungary in 1998.

DUST @ Freedom Festival 2019

Andrea Lunghi AKA Dust has been releasing psychedelic trance music since 2008, always keeping on evolving and defining his cutting-edge, broad soundscape from night-time underground full-on tunes to daytime kick-ass dance floor stompers.

His tracks are imprinted with his easily recognisable touch and you can hear them pounding at most of the psytrance events around the globe. Many releases followed Dust’s debut album “I don’t like psychedelics” on Looney Moon records in 2012, such as “My friends love psychedelics” in March 2013, “Explicit Content” in 2014 , “Hippie Blaster” in 2016 togheter with Lunatica, “Loonacy” in 2017 with Obliviant and “Wanamatcha” last december.

Aside from his solo project, Dust has a role in many collaboration projects: Loonacy (with Obliviant), Foam (with Assioma) and Dustinface (with Phase) to name a few.

Dust is a real production machine – His state-of-the-art studio kept him warm during the past cold season, as you can tell by the list of his upcoming releases:

– Dust Vs Jumpstreet – “Dusty streets” Ep
– Dust 3rd full length album

His hectic touring schedules have brought him all around the world’s most renowed psychedelic gatherings, such as Boom and Ozora Festival in Europe, Rezonance in South Africa, Doof in Israel, Experience in Thailand and Universo Paralello in Brazil.

GOASIA @ Freedom Festival 2019

We all know those two goa minds from southern part of Europe, but it’s good to say that Goasia project exists since year 2000. It became more active on the trance scene after 3-4 years, since Vladislav Radulovi aka Kantz Cover from progressive trance OPSY came into a project and joined Balint Tihamer.

Bunch of studio equipment directed to sound, represented trough the tracks, and resulted on many worlds’ releases at various labels. For example, we can mention some of the first releases that came on Suntrip, Cosmicleaf, Kagdila Rec, Unicorn Music, Phototropic, Global Sect Music, Soundmute Recordings, Spacedock Records, Goa Trance Com, USTA Rec, etc..

In year 2006 Goasia published a collaboration album with greek goa trance artist Omegahertz for Unicorn Music. After that release and few more singles on other labels, at the end of 2007, in November, this project made their first solo studio album under the name “From Other Spaces” and published it for goa trance label “Suntrip Records” from Belgium, and became the official Suntrip artist. Excellent vibes and reviews of this release, opened to Goasia new offers for promoting their music all over the world…

After a while, about 2 and a half years, some compilations and EPs later, Goasia decided to unite the newly composed material on the media which they present on their second CD album on Dimensional Records in 2010. Definition of the album was described as a fusion of the morning, sometimes melancholic sound and cheerful forest environment. Of course, all spiced with the energetic, cosmic and ethnic melodies.

The return to the good old spirit of beautiful Goa Trance music in a totally new form of high-quality production, many consumers noticed on their new 3rd studio album called “Amphibians On Spacedock”.

Very strong and science fiction illustration of possible story somewhere in universe.
