We have begun the process of preparing for Rhythmic Earth 2010. Starting a little earlier this year for more magic.

Date: Easter weekend, 2nd - 4th April 2010

We will begin sharing artists, venue and performances leading into the new year! Last Rhythmic Earth was very special in many ways and an amazing learning experience for those of us involved.

If anyone would like to contribute ideas for improving or expending on this event or would like to be involved in anyway please don't be shy and make contact when you can :~)

We are not taking submission demo's from artists yet but will be shortly so watch this and other spaces.

Some pics from last year's review and other spaces in memory of the mud to sunshine experience :bonfire:

Far East Ghost (Triplag Music; Japan)
Takeomi is the globe-trotting Tokyo-based artist behind the Far East Ghost project who embodies the Japanese psychedelic sound through his deep yet hardcore music production.
After releasing his debut album "Welcome to Psychedelic Hell" in spring 2007 from Trip Records, he completed a smashing Japan tour, joined Triplag Music and Kabrathor Music as an official label artist, and blitzed through a successful European tour in the winter of that same year.
In addition Takeomi has contributed to releases from Manic Dragon, Kagdila Records, Amibivalent Records, Last Possible Solution and a number of other leading international and domestic labels.
In 2008 following the closure of Kabrathor Records he joined the new label 2to6 Records, founded by friends Electrypnose and Baphomet Engine.
He has been working on collaborations with acclaimed Japanese artists Savage Scream as Diablos and with Noise Gust as Mephisto and released a triple split album including Diablos, Mephisto, and Baal, titled "Lords of Destruction" from Triplag Music on Sep/2008.

Positive Thought (UP Records; NNSW)

His sounds is clean, tight, rounded, fluid morning psytrance. Positive Thought is a versatile producer with many projects of varied styles from progressive psy to glitch tech.

Yeti (UP Records; Solar records - NNSW)

Sunrunner (Electric Power Pole Records; Wollongong)
Sunrunner was born from a blazing ray of sunshine that burst through a legion of puffy white clouds one sunny Australian afternoon in November. Starting out as a small ball of light, Sunrunner eventually became more of a consciousness and acquired some technology to start working on music. After many nights of producing random blips and beeps, things started to sound a little less like a computer shorting out and more like a piece of electronic music.
Combining trippy sounds, lush pads, emotive melodies and percussion, Sunrunner’s sound is reminiscent of the Australian bush and outback on a slightly psychedelic afternoon. His music has been heard around parts of Australia and as far abroad as Finland and Japan.

Autonomech (Zenon Records; Melbourne)
One of Zenons most talented and original artists, Autonomech has spent the past few years developing his own unique approach to Psychedelic music while also reflecting the definitive sound that has made Zenon a world renowned label. Creating a spacious sound collage of organic fx and creative synthesis, Autonomech seamlessly melds genres such as Trance, Jazz, Breaks, Dubstep, Glitch and many more. Autonomech focuses on a sound diverse and refreshingly experimental yet accessible and dance floor friendly.
Autonomech has played his creations live at Australia's best psychedelic music events and festivals such as Rainbow Serpent Festival, Cairns Winter Solstice, Earth Dance, Secret Sessions, Exodus and many more.

Faeorin (Highly Evolved Records/Headstick Digital; Melbourne)
Faeorin is the coming together of the two ends of the earth. Javier Ponce Alvarez (aka Chwen) is a Mexican DJ and sound engineer who is well known for magical, mind-blowing psytrance and progressive sets. His partner, Jess Stafford has grown up playing a swath of different instruments and reveling in jazz, rock, folk, blues, pop, world music and any other strange acoustic sounds that tickle her fancy. They met and fell madly in love in Mexico in 2006 and in 2008 created their project Faeorin to encompass both their firm belief in the magical and the surreal, and their love of music in all its multifaceted brilliance. Since their live debut at Ostara Festival in September 2008, Faeorin have had fantastic support from the Australian electronic music scene with bookings both throughout Victoria and interstate.

Pspiralife (Zenon Records; Hobart)
Around early 2006 Shayne was introduced to psychedelic trance by a friend and fell in love with the scene immediately. Soon after he attended a doof in Hobart with some friends for the first time and was converted to electronic music overnight. From here Shayne was roped into finding better and better sounding psychedelic trance to fine-tune exactly what it was that fulfilled him musically more than ever before. This has since evolved into performing dj sets as “Shammie”, show casing his favorite tracks from the full on – melodic and deep psy-gressive styles within the genre. Electronic music production is now something that has become a new passion for Shayne through experimenting with the genre. The complete control and intricate detail that can be achieved fulfils him musically more than past musical projects.

Spyrallus (Bom Shanka Music; Brisbane)
Spyrallus grew up on the earthen dance floor, in the lush forested hills near Byron Bay, Australia. After moving north to study Sound Design he became involved with organizing parties and DJing in the local area with the Timelapse crew. Drawing on inspiration derived from the trance floors of Australia and around the world, Spyrallus has used musical expression as his creative output. Stirring the melting pot of expansive timbral leads, quirky sounds and thunderous basslines Spyrallus creates a fine balance between noise and melody as he forges his own style of high energy, fast and furious psychedelic night music.

Image
Circuit Bent (Diskonektor Records; Melbourne)
Traditionally known for glitched breaks with a techy edge... yes. For Rhythmic Earth all of this will be evolved within a progressive yet techno spiced groove.. 4 on the floor*** with a subtle taste of glitch to keep it psychedelic right? Hell yea <3
Eli and Jesse were manufactured inside the bowels of a top secret laboratory for the purpose of being super soldiers hell bent on world domination. After the mad scientists realized the true nature of the monsters they had created they tried to destroy the foul creatures they had spawned but were overwhelmed by the sonic insanity and bled to death from their ears. To this day the location of Eli and Jess is unknown, but their presence on the internet is evidence that the world is still not safe from the global menace lurking around the corner.

Merkaba (Zenon Records; Southern Highlands NSW)
From the depths of a valley in the Southern Highlands of NSW comes Merkaba, a deep progressive project from Elliot Wilmot. From jamming out as a drummer to spinning hip hop and breakbeats for 6 years Elliot has always had a healthy relationship with music. In 2004 he decided to have a go at making his own deliciously phat beats, however, it wasn't until Jan 2007 when he found himself barefoot in the Aussie bush in front of some monster speaker stacks that he realized his ultimate musical direction. The Doof had changed him forever! With a focus on positive and healing vibrations Merkaba combines deep basslines with lush melodies, tribal percussion and a focus on an overall 'organic' sound. Prepare for a vibrational journey that connects the mind, heart, body, and Dancefloor!

Onda (R.E.G.E.N. Records; Sydney)
ONDA is.... the duo creation founded in the latin climes of Argentina. Two friends whose ideas mesh to create deep and twisting full-on psychedelic morning sounds. They are the combination of established Australian artists A'kin and Thermohaline. ONDA is a recipe that was brewed on a surfing safari along the Uruguayan coast: 2 cups of phat bass, an ounce of driving beats, 3 spoons of psychedelic melodies and a pinch of twisted ear-tweaking chaos. A phat combination that will definitely lift the atmosphere of any dance floor. Buena onda!

Image
Daheen (R.E.G.E.N. Records; Sydney)
The Daheen psytrance experience is something to behold. He has aimed to create a distinctive style, fusing sounds and melodies to tell a story or convey a concept, as well as providing a stomping good dance. He incorporates many samples from the real world. His unique live set has to be seen to be believed. Entertaining, comical, bizarre, and a great dance. Daheen has been showcasing his live performance up and down the east coast of Australia as well as recent performances in the UK and on the European festival circuit. Recent releases include 'Direct flight' - a track with Psyboriginal on his album "Unleashed", and 'Regrowth' - from the debut REGEN Records compilation "Tree Dimensional". Stay tuned for the Daheen full length psytrance album coming soon.

Wunpointzero (Canberra)
Onepointzero, An archaic prototype version one sentient sonic wave generator and interface unit. Found in stasis by a deep space salvage crew some time in the 21st century. Estimated cira 2001. Little is known of this unit though, it is believed to have originated as a bass and keyboard player in various punk and industrial metal bands in 90's, the unit underwent many custom modifications while exploring the sonic possibilities of electronic music. From industrial powernoise to techno to hardhouse, Onepointzero has constantly been evolving. Sometime in the early 00's onepointzero was exposed to psychedelic culture and was instantly transformed. from that point on the unit began to make a psychedelic music hybrid borderlining on Progessive psytrance and psychedelic techno heavily influenced from tribal psychedelic experiences, life, the universe, and everything.

Kalya Scintilla http://www.myspace.com/kalyascintilla
Another project of the ever evolving talent Merkaba. Sound like: Dripping thick molasses over a tabla, a journey through an enchanted forest, the soundtrack to an epic dream scape. Aladdin vs Alibaba in a break dance face off. Heaven meets earth channeled through speakers. Since the dawn of this project Kalya Scintilla has progressed to another level.
