This week on Psylicious Radio we welcome Belgian based Neo Goa trance label, Goa Madness Records, who will be providing you all with some tranced out hypnotic bliss featuring a DJ set from Kuririn with producer live showcases from Ephedra and Moon Beasts. Enjoy!
KURIRIN [Goa Madness Recs] BE
Kuririn is Julien Daine, a Belgian DJ who started to get involved into music in his early teens.
His first contact with electronic music was @ the age of 14 when he got interested in progressive & uplifting trance. He discovered Goatrance a bit later while he went to his first party in 2003. He was immediately hooked by this style and became more & more interested by those psychedelic sounds.
After 1 year, he decided to buy some DJ equipment and started to collect some music. Since then he played @ numerous parties in Belgium and abroad. His DJ sets can be filled with modern Goatrance or even old school stuff ranging from melodic to darker styles depending on the momentum.
Since 2013 he is also co-manager of Goa Madness Records with “Ephedra” and since 2017 he is also DJ’ing for Zion 604.
For this showcase you can expect a lot of modern Goatrance including plenty of Goa Madness Goodies!
EPHEDRA [Goa Madness Recs] BE
Ephedra is Alexandre Cohen, a Belgian producer/ DJ born in Brussels.
Alex musical trip started around 1998 when he discovered electronic music. He began slowly to buy DJ equipment and started to play progressive trance for his own pleasure.
After some years training with the decks he got interested in many others electronic styles like techno, house, electro and began to play in small student parties.
After some time, he discovered Goa trance / psytrance while he was at a festival in Belgium. He was so impressed and directly felt in love…
Some times later he began to play in small oldskool Goa parties and started to produce his own music.
Soon after he had the opportunity to be a resident for the German party org “Tranceforce prod” and started to play live acts and DJ sets in Germany a few times a year.
His first release « Acid rain » appeared on the compilation « Goa overdose 2 » (UAF Recs) followed by many other releases on labels such as Suntrip Records, Sita Records, Ovnimoon Records & more.
His first album “Journey through my head” was released in 2014 on Goa Madness Records, followed by 2 other albums.
He already played in several countries such as: Israel, Brazil, Japan, Serbia, Spain, Portugal, Croatia, Poland, Hungary, Germany, Switzerland, France, The Netherlands, Lebanon and of course Belgium…
His style can best be described as melodic, euphoric and sometimes acidic Goatrance with a lot of different influences.
Alex is also one of the label mangers of « Goa Madness records »
For this showcase, Alex will present some tracks from his upcoming album “Another Place On Earth” that will be released this autumn blended with some of his classics!
MOON BEASTS [Goa Madness Recs] BE/FR
So, what’s “Moon Beasts” you ask?
Well, besides being nightmarish monstrosities living on the dark side of the Dreamlands’ moon, it’s also the name of a collaboration project between Alexandre Cohen (that’s Ephedra), and Jerome Lesterps (a.k.a Proxeeus), respectively from Belgium & France.
They decided to join forces a couple of years ago, first by making a collaboration track (which ended up being featured on Ephedra’s 3rd album), and when they were asked to perform a complete collaborative set in Portugal earlier in 2019, they decided to take things up a notch and transformed this into a full-blown music project.
What’s to expect then ? My, ya’ll are a curious bunch. The general idea is to obviously make a blend of both styles, with Ephedra’s floaty, melodic side bringing some kind of balance to Proxeeus’ more aggressive sound, which should result in something greater than the sum of its parts.
According to Proxeeus though, it’s simply a plot to prevent Ephedra from making fluffy stuff and to bring him to the Dark Side (because we’ve got cookies over there, yo).
What’s the right answer, We’ll let you decide for yourself. Now, if you’re willing, we’ll shut up, and let the music speak for itself. Beastly yours,
In This Showcase, Moon Beasts will present some of the new tracks from their upcoming releases!
