Deutronium (Lucid Realms) has been producing psychedelic trance for more than 10 years, and playing producer-only sets since 2003. His sound does not fit neatly into any single sub-genre. Melodic and uplifting merged with driving and psychedelic, it is music designed to satisfy dancers and chin-strokers alike. You can hear some of his tunes at http://www.myspace.com/deutronium. As a DJ, David has established a distinct sound that is lush, melodic and uplifting in nature. His DJ sets are all about illustrating the difference that exists between two terms that are often (and unfairly)
used interchangeably - 'melodic' and 'cheese'. No cheese here - just contemporary, melodic, goa trance and chunky psy at it's finest.

Trolley's sound has evolved since 2003 from cheesy-as-fuck full-on psychedelic trance to phat, psychedelic progressive trance of the highest order. He spends hours and hours searching for the best tunes, ditching the crap and ending up with about six tunes to pick from... (nah just kidding). Phat beats, groovy bass lines and trance inspired melodies form the basis of Trolley's music collection. With all the best elements of prog-house, minimal and psychedelic trance rolled into one, Trolley's DJ'ing style has been truly unique for some time. He's played at a bunch of events that are too numerous to list but include earl of fnord, Tribeadelic, Rainbow Serpent Festival, Freebase, Royal Doof, Red Bus, Alien Earth, Somatica, Imajica, Bobby Raver's Bedroom and more. Trolley's been on the bill alongside some amazing artists including Simon Posford, Reefer Decree, Sun Control Species and the legendary Raja Ram. Many events in and around Melbourne have been organised by Trolley, with some famous ones at Fairfield Guide Dogs Park, Yarra Flats and a bunch of epic efforts at Dights Falls Park down on the Yarra River. He's run the 'Trip or Treat' Halloween parties with E.Lad, and has been involved with the A.V.E. sound system for many years. In 2003 Trolley ran the hugely successful 'official' renegade stage at earl of fnord. He's supplied the A.V.E. sound system to Tribeadelic new year's, Digital Mayhem new year's, earl of fnord In The Park, Alien Earth, Imajica, Every Picture Tells a Story, and a bunch of other events. After ten years supporting and participating in Melbourne's psychedelic trance community, his relationship with the scene is a bit more casual these days. He's supplying sound systems and DJ sets to a number of events in the second half of 2010, including Warm The Cockles and Earthdance Gippsland, and looks forward to continuing his journey with sound and music until he's a really old bastard. Having a simple philosophy of playing all the music that he likes, Trolley's not into it for money or fame (although that would be nice). He does it for fun and the love of music. He's considered to be one of Melbourne’s finest DJ's by many seasoned party-goers, so bust out your best smile and get ready for an unforgettable dance floor experience

Dystopia got into electronic music during the Underworld Trainspotting era, and she was first influenced by breakbeat. 2001 Moved to the darker sounds of drum’n’bass once she got her head around the frenetic pace. Stayed there for several years, played all the Subvert gigs, plus d’n’b at a few other small venues such a...s Deep Eleven and Ace Morning Bar. In 2003-2004 expanded to other styles including breakcore, techno and electro, thanks to influences from staff at various record stores such as Central Station and Slap Records. Anything dark, crunchy and uncomfortable, with heavy synth lines always an attraction no matter what the genre. Got into sci-fi movie soundtracks, BBC sound effects, old TV show theme music, and some retro. Played obscure gigs for a performance-art friend at Loop, plus random gigs at Pony and Kent Street.
2005 played the HiFi as support for drum’n’bass artists Robyn Chaos & Dylan. Also discovered psy-trance, then dubstep a bit later, and added these to the hotpot. 2009 The John B Show @ Mercat. Any gigs after this point have been an amalgamation of all styles, these are the most fun as you get to mix different genres within the one set.

Sack the DJ started out playing hard house records on his housemate's 1200's back in 2001, but it didn't take long to gravitate towards trance. Moved to the UK for a year in 2003, probably the last year of Trance's honeymoon, and lived down the road from Godskitchen and Sundissential.

When he moved back to Australia he invested in his own turntables and then set about dragging them to any and every house party he went to, often spending the majority of the party behind the decks. Banging tunes would belt out all night and then epic trance as the sun came up.

Eventually trance gigs lost their appeal, and as many ravers do, he migrated to the doof scene. He had been listening to the likes of Astral Projection and Hallucinogen for years but found it hard to get into DJing psy at first because he was reluctant to give up his precious vinyl habit and 'real' turn tables for the baby's-first-dj-setup convenience of CDJs. Yes, Sack the DJ is one of those elitist pricks who sniggers when people call using CDJ's 'mixing' (don't get him started on MP3s).

Eventually the pull of the music was too strong, and he hardly ever listened to hard house or trance any more, and it was a choice of give in to the CDJ wave, or give up DJing entirely. His love for the music won out in the end, and now he has learned to enjoy belting out killer psy using whatever medium, as long as the crowd is getting into it.

Musically his taste is influenced by his hard house and trance roots... hard, fast and crazy, or smooth, melodic and deep.. Lamat. Protoculture. Electric Universe. Chromosome. Hydraglyph. Astral Projection.

Malphemism:
The act or an example of substituting a derogatory, offensive, or blunt term for one considered mild, indirect, or vague. Opposite of the word euphemism.

Malphemist:
Lifetime music lover, amateur producer, recently turned Drum'n'Bass DJ.

His style is focused on glitchy, techy, neurofunk with grimy bass, unpredictable beats and epic melodies. Malphemist is going to use his freshest, funnest, filthiest tracks to fill your mind with dirt and your body with energy until you can't help but start grooving. Influences include: John B, Sub Focus, Spor, Pendulum, Blu Mar Ten, Camo & Krooked, Xilent and Kloe & Imprintz. In the short time since he's started DJing, highlights have included: Intergalactic, Royale with Cheese and most recently opening for ShadowFX and Ed Motive at the Black Pearl Solar Eclipse.

Originally into Rock & Metal, Elation started getting exposure to more of the experimental side of music and thus brought his interests towards the electronic sounds. Grew to like Trance of the late 90's and soon expanded into Hard Trance, Hard House & Drum N Bass. Played a bunch of house parties where people knew of him as "that random dude who just jumped on the decks and mixed for 3hrs using everyone elses tunes" (Only because he didn't bring his own).

Elation stumbled across the Goa Trance of '99 & 2000's (DJ Mary Jane, Yipsilon 5, Astral Projection, Juno Reactor, Alien Project etc) and soon much of his earlier interests in trance were diminishing and the love of psychedelic music was born. Moved away from spinning vinyl and learned CDJ's. Booked for more gigs like G.O.L.F (Going Out Large Fraternity), The Playhard Industries Crew, DMF crew with Sunshine Shenanigans, the original Psytrance & Strippers, The Lost Forest and Intergalactic Parties to name a few.

Growing up on Metal, when Acid Tail is not playing dark psy he likes to slow it down a lot and play really psychedelic sounds from chill psy though to bounce. Played at the first Psy & Strippers and Royale with Cheese

Since early 2010, DJ Skrl has been playing with knobs! A psychonaut with roots in hard trance, dance, and -core, he has played in venues such as your house-party, Royale with Cheese, and is soon to be resident at whit3nois3. Be prepared for just about any genre: full-on/dark/prog psy, hard dance/trance, electro, breaks, glitch funk, industrial hardcore, breakcore, and more.

Just a note to all attendees of this event, there will be filming during the evening for a documentary "We Are Illuminated". It is a documentary exploring humanity’s productivity, play and relationship to energy in our 24-hour lives. The film follows five people through one night. Without voice-over or dialogue, the film observes each character as they move through the activities of their work. Beautiful imagery, found sounds and evocative music lead the audience along a sensory journey into an unseen world. "We Are Illuminated" is a slice of humanity’s 24-hour story – the invisible relationships that bind us all and the fantastic ocean of light employed to illuminate our way.

"We Are Illuminated" will be created by Melbourne filmmaker, William Head. The film is funded by Australia's national film funding agency, Screen Australia, through the Raw Nerve program and administered by Melbourne filmmaking resource centre Open Channel. When the film is finished in October, it is planned to be submitted for screening at various documentary and short film festivals throughout the world.

The filming will focus on one or two of the performers dancing, with permissions sought from any patrons who may be filmed.

There will also be a professional photographer present. Please be aware that no other filming or photography is permitted by patrons at the venue.

Javier Alvarez de las Casas (aka Chwen) discovered Psytrance in 2001, and fell in love with the style. Through the sounds of psychedelic trance he found what he was looking for in music: magic - a new way of being in touch with his inner self. In 2004 after 3 years of attending underground parties he decided to buy his own decks.

He was a resident DJ at Café Iguana, the biggest trance nightclub in Monterrey, Mexico until traveling to Melbourne to bring some Mexican magic to the scene in Australia.

He has been invited to play all over Mexico where he is well known and respected, and also in the United States.

Whether he’s playing funky, fat progressive trance throughout techno and minimal, you can expect him to take you on a journey of mysticism, mischievousness and magic.

Since arriving in Oz, Chwen’s adventures have taken him from the bush to the beach to the clubs (and even on a boat!). Since his debut at Interview’s Elements Earth Chwen has played in several major parties including earl of fnord Festival, Interview’s Tranc3formers, Spiral Harmonics Maya Gathering, and RMIT University’s Rock The Vote just to name a few. He has also been featured on SYN FM radio playing a live DJ set. A portion of one of his DJ sets has been used in the soundtrack of an independent Australian short film to be released at film festivals in January 2008. These days he works non-stop along with his partner in 3 electronic projects Faeorin, which is a funky prog act, The Loom, exploring the sounds of minimal tech house and Naualli their newest down-tempo project.
