Q: What you think of the evolution of psytrance scene in the last ten years?
that is a deep one: ))) i think due to the evolution of technology the music had a huge evolution and the new generation of producers came with wild and fresh ideas
i think musically as been a n honor and a pleasure to live in this era But in other hand im sad for the commercialization of the scene Its not a every nice scene now days with greed and envying and other bad energies ruling over a. big. number of record labels and event organization. Our lovely scene in Europe became a freak show n a drug abuse center as well a business for organizations. But there is still light in the darkness: )))

Q: Do you buy music ? Do you think this model of selling can still work for psytrance music ?
i do still buy music even of very little … i think yes there should be an industry for it. a good record is priceless. i do agree with free music too stuff like ektoplazm i think is a brilliant platform And very beneficial for the scene.

Q: Tell us a little about your personal life ?
im a simple guy 34 year old. born in Portugal from African emigrates parents. i love skateboarding i love all types of non commercial music. i love to dance to travel and meeting new ppl. i have a condition called Melomania is a person who as an extreme need of listen to music or rhythm every day. all the time.

dj?to be able to travel work with different ppl and have access to fresh music
as well is an awesome feeling to put the dance floor on” fire “.

Q: How is the current London psytrance scene ?
humm im sad to say that is not a very nice one there is fierce competition between party promoters , strategic coalition and a major division between the different sub genres of psychedelic trance music lovers its hard n complicated scene as most events are still illegal.

Q: You play twisted dark psychedelic music. Do you think a person who just started to listen to psytrance music can listen to it or is it only for experienced listeners?
i think so yes iv meet ppl who discovered psy trance with hi tech music n only after discovered the other genres but got suck in to the scene with dark music.

Q: Which record label from the psytrance scene do you like currently ? Why ?
Pleiadian records, consistent quality releases, pioneered the hi tech music releases and are a label with pure n genuine intentions For development and evolution of this scene.
