CONQUEST presents GMS

CONQUEST is back with HARDWARE CORP to present the elusive scientists from IBIZA, planetary centre of dance music - GMS. With their mind-blowing music pushing and blurring sonic boundaries, GROWLING MAD SCIENTISTS are one of the most in-demand live electronic music acts in the world. Supported by the CONQUEST visual science team along with the most elaborate and customised visual installation ever employed, something very special is cooking. See you on the dancefloor...

GMS (Spun Records / COAST II COAST, IBIZA)
Groundbreaking psychedelic trance group Growling Mad Scientists—Riktam (Shajahan Matkin) and Bansi (Joe Quinteros, who is originally from Barcelona)—regularly tour the world and have sold over 200,000 albums on over 150 releases. Their music pushes and blurs sonic boundaries and has inspired both producers and punters alike, making G.M.S. one of the most in-demand live electronic acts in the world.

G.M.S. began when Riktam and Bansi met in high school at age 14 in Amsterdam. Both were passionate about electronic music, so the duo chose to leave school and seek their education in the club scene. “We really didn’t find what we really liked to do in school,” says Riktam. “We wanted to focus on music, so we started DJing. It just felt like the right thing to do for us.”

Even though they were too young to legally enter a nightclub, Riktam and Bansi began spinning at clubs in Amsterdam. On most occasions, they had to be whisked into the building’s side door to avoid scrutiny by the authorities. While in the DJ booth, they’d often receive double takes from clubbers who caught a glimpse of the two teenagers rocking the dance floor.

It was on this Indian paradise where the heady strains of Goa trance seeped into these 16-year-old’s bodies and souls. In Goa, Riktam and Bansi DJ’ed at some of the wildest, most memorable parties of their young lives. The experience made an indelible mark on their psyche and subsequent gigs around Europe further enlightened their spirit.

Spun’s purpose is twofold: to serve as a home for G.M.S.’s music and as forum to showcase promising psy-trance talent. “We were releasing records with a lot of labels for quite a few years,” says Riktam. “We thought about how much money the label made and how much we made. It was wiser in the end to have a label of our own so that we can help ourselves and other artists and friends in the trance scene.”

With their songs now almost omnipresent, even Hollywood took note of G.M.S. in 2004 by licensing G.M.S. tracks for Man On Fire starring Denzel Washington. And if you turn on any sports network almost anywhere in the world, chances are good that you’ll hear one of G.M.S.’s tracks pumping in the background.

Having graduated from playing small clubs to performing at mega-festivals like Dance Valley and The Boom and packing super-clubs line New York’s Avalon, G.M.S. aren’t ones to rest on their laurels. As their legion of followers grows, they’re constantly refining their live show and pushing their music to the next level.

“It took us quite a while to get where we are right now,” says Riktam. “It entailed a lot of hard work and a lot of time in the studio. In the end, we’re proof that hard work always pays off.”

With
SPACE TRIBE (Space Tribe Music, BYRON BAY)
SPACE TRIBE.........Olli Wisdom, Originally from England, now living in the Rainforest near Byron Bay, Australia, has been a pioneer of Psychedelic Trance for many years. In the early 80s Olli was the singer in the theatrical Goth/Glam band "The Specimen", & ran the famous London goth club “ The Batcave “. After the band split up in 1986 Olli went traveling in Asia and in 1988 came to Koh Phangan in Thailand where he first encountered the fantastic electro-driven wild psychedelic parties on the beach. Instantly hooked, he immersed himself into the music and has never looked back. He stayed there for 2 years, DJing, and set up a small studio and making tracks for the parties, before moving to Goa, India. Over the next 4 years, Olli spent his time mostly in Goa, but now starting to travel around making parties in other places (San Francisco, Switzerland, UK, Japan), spreading the word and turning people on. In 1993, Olli, his brother Miki, and Richmond started Space Tribe clothing in Bali. The fractal fluoro party gear was an instant success, and now you can see it at parties all over the planet. In 1995, the first Space Tribe tracks were hatched in the studio with Simon Posford (Hallucinogen/Sphongle), and everything flowed from there. Olli moved out to the rainforest in Byron Bay in Australia, and set up the Rainforest Space Base studio. Space Tribe released the first album, 'Sonic Mandala' on Spirit Zone in 1996, and since then Space Tribe has released at least an album a year. In 2004 Space Tribe Music was set up as a record label providing an out let for Space Tribe releases & compilation albums. Space Tribe are also making many tracks in collaboration with other artists – Including Absolum, Sirius Isness, X-Dream, GMS, Menog, CPU, Psywalker & especially Electric Universe, working under the name ESP. Olli is traveling all over the world, playing live at parties and bringing joy to the thousands of dancers who know exactly why they are there. Space Tribe parties have lifted the spirit and tweaked the synapses in Australia, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, Israel, America, Thailand, India, Ibiza, Bali, England, Germany, Hungary, Holland, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and many more places. From Burning Man to Voov Experience, from the mountains in Japan to the beach in Goa...
