Hi everyone,

abstrakt: a celebration of Tegma's new album release.

LINEUP:
Tegma LIVE + DJ (Candyflip Recs - Malmo, Sweden)
Absolute (MusiCall Box - Montréal)
Br34th3 (Phonolite - Montréal)
Clown (Jester Recs - Montréal)
Digbeez (Lakura Recs - Toronto)
Ivan Medvedskiy vs Evgeniy Wolf (Ample Prods - Montréal vs Tel-Aviv)
OSG (MusiCall Box - Montréal)

WHO IS TEGMA?

Behind the music of Tegma is Omar Chelly and Jason Orfanidis, both born and bred in Swedish town Malmoe.
So what’s the story behind this successful trance project?
Omar and Jason have been friends since childhood, with a friendship that goes back to their fathers it was only natural that the two would sooner or later create such a thing as music together. The story begins in 1996 when Omar moved back to Malmoe after having lived a couple of years outside of Sweden and also in Gothenburg.

By the time Omar moved back, he found that Jason had discovered something called Psychedelic Trance. With Greek origins, Jason spends every summer in Greece and that’s where he got in touch with trance, a close friend and relative, Alexis, introduced him to this new genre of electronic music; Psychedelic Trance.
This was in 1994 and Jason went into addiction directly, starting to collect vinyl and playing as a dj at small parties and co-assisting his cousin at a radio show called Danceswitch which was broadcasted on a station in Athens. However this was mainly for fun and Jason didn’t consider picking up dj’ing or producing seriously.


However for Omar, this music didn’t seem too much interesting, he was more into hip-hop and world music. Although he had been listening to some electronica like Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and Vangelis it was a bit hard to swallow. Later on , at the end of 1997, Jason forgot some cd’s at Omar’s house, and he put them on just to give it a try as Jason was insisting that this is THE music to listen and party to. Slowly, slowly Omar also got bitten by the psychedelic grooves.


After a year, in the end of the year 1998, Omar got hold of the program Reason and started experimenting with it. This later resulted in their first common project called Epsilon, which Omar and Jason describes as “lousy, crappy melodic psytrance” Thankfully none of the songs of the Epsilon project never got a chance to get out to any larger crowds…


After a year of messing around with Reason , and learning the basics from it they both agreed that they wanted to go deeper into producing music and they decided it was time to buy some hardware to expand the system.
They first bought the Yamaha Rm1x and later on a Novation Nova, with these two and a simple pc running Cubase they continued producing under the Epsilon name for a couple of months.
However in the beginning of 2000 they instantly fell in love with the new wave of progressive and minimal psytrance and felt that this was the thing they were looking for.
So the result was the death of Epsilon and the birth of Tegma!




In June 2000, Omar and Jason produced their first 3-track demo and sent it out to a couple of labels, with positive feedback and a signing of one of the tracks, things started to look good for Tegma and this resulted in more hard work.

Since then things have gone quite well, releasing on over 20 cd compilations on various labels around the world, a couple of twelve inches and an album…
Adding the fact that they performed their live act in many parts of the world , far places such as Japan, Brazil and Mexico among many others…

The Tegma boys also tried to make some other projects, with their Homer N Lazon project they had some releases in the U.K., and Omar also producing his solo project O’Chelly with a couple of releases on some cd compilations. Jason also picked up his dj’ing
again and has played many times along the Tegma live set and also on a couple of occasions on his own...


So what is going on for the moment?
After not having produced under the Tegma moniker for a while now, Omar and Jason decided it was time for a second Tegma album. The result will show in November.

Tickets will be available at Psychonaut and Musik Hall as of November 20.
The price of a ticket will be
$20 during 2004
$25 during January 2005
$30 during February 2005
? at the door

The event will take place on February 12 2005 in Montreal.
The exact location will be revealed 2 weeks prior to the event.

See you on the dancefloor           Load Universe into Cannon. Aim at Brain. Fire.

At the risk of sounding a bit anal, but Tegma's two people, Vincenzo.
Also, if you are curious to what they've been up to, you can catch samples of their album to be released shortly on Candyflip on Tegma's web site: http://www.tegmatekk.com
