Eartfreq Festival 2007 --- 16-18 Feb
Earthfreq is a weekend-long outdoor music and environment festival. The concept of Earthfreq is not just a party, but a gathering of the tribes, a weekend of intention. The focus is on creating a meaningful space where we can raise awareness and share useful information on environmental issues and sustainable lifestyle choices, consolidate the creative community bonds and provide a positive transformative party experience. Visit http://www.earthfreq.com for a full list of talks, workshops and day activities.
The gathering begins friday night, with a market stage program and bush cinema. Saturday day will feature environmental and cultural talks and workshops across several spaces, aswell as a chilled music program. Mainstage starts late saturday afternoon with a tribal opening ceremony, and will run through the night and into sunday, showcasing the talent of some special international guests alongside a range of live acts and djs chosen from all corners of the east coast, plus a full visual overload to light up the night.

Behind the music of Tegma are Omar Chelly and Jason Orfanidis, both born and bred in Swedish town Malmoe. In 1998 they started their first common project Epsilon focused on melodic trance, but two years later they completely fell in love with the new wave of progressive and minimal psytrance which caused a birth of brand new act called Tegma. Since then they have released about 40 tracks on cd compilations and vinyls of various labels and also three full-length albums, Encoded/Decoded (Digital Structures 2002), 002: Avantgarde (Candyflip Records 2005) and recent Around the World in 80 Minutes on Tribal Vision Records. Both guys also work under their moniker “Homer N Lazon” focusing on progressive and electro house.
Michal Smetana aka Slater started his DJ carrier in the late 90´s, spinning goa and psytrance vinyls at small semi-private underground events. At the beginning of 2001 he decided to establish a new DJ crew with the objective of promoting own trance parties - and after a couple of months of preparations the Synapsy open air party was born. Organized in the amphitheatre of the castle of Lipnice nad Sazavou, this legendary event was the beginnings of the Tribal Vision promotions group.
Tribal Vision has been slowly getting engaged in more and more activities connected with the trance music, focusing mainly on a new wave of progressive and minimal sound. In 2004 Slater together with his friend Schwa started their work on the first Czech progressive label and by the end of the year, Tribal Vision Records was born. Yet the first cd compilation Urban Legends caught the attention of both DJs and listeners worldwide and Tribal Vision has been slowly establishing itself as one of the leading labels on the progressive scene. The number of high quality compilations, artist albums and vinyls is getting bigger every month and in their own artist roster are names such as Tegma, Fitalic, Rai, Sonic Cube, POTS / Prisoners of the Sun and more. Slater himself is working as label´s main manager, A&R and representative DJ.
Patrik Olsen aka SHAMANIAC was born in 1974 in Sweden. He’s been playing records regularly at clubs and festivals over the past 16 years, ranging from radio hits to deep electronic grooves and everything in between.
Since the mid -90´s Patrik has been focusing on electronic music, mainly progressive & psychedelic trance, and the skills behind the decks has brought him around the globe to places including Mexico, South Africa, India, USA, Greece, Spain, Italy and Germany.
In 1997 Patrik formed the well-known trance outfit NECTON along with Matin Stääf, with releases on labels such as Spirit Zone, Plusquam, Digital Structures, Spiral Traxx, Iboga, including an exclusive contract on Spirit zone, resulting in album release, several EP´s, a huge amount of compilations and a set at the 2005 VOOV Experience in Germany.
After many years of DJ’ing and playing live around the globe as Necton, Patrik formed SHAMANIAC as a solo side project, to further explore the sonic landscapes of electronic music, focusing mainly on a crossover between progressive and psychedelic trance with lots of drums and percussion.
This is Patrik's first show in Australia! LIVE & DJ @ the Market stage late Friday night/Saturday morning, Session on!
Sun Control Species
Drooid a.k.a Suncontrolspecies has become a standard amongst the australian trance scene since the turn of the millenium. A fully accredited musician and engineer, working from 98-2000 as a commercial sound engineer and producer in Sydney, he eventually left to pursue his own music career. After deciding against joining a 'boy band' [for obvious reasons!] the project SCS was born. Now based in Melbourne, his countless perfomances and tireless travels all across australias thriving scene, has brought a solid reputation for the unique style and feel SCS brings to the table.
Also extensively travelling the globe, playing alongside almost every other major artist on planets like Denmark, USA, Israel, France, Croatia, and Japan to name a few. With many credits to his name, like live SCS sets recorded and aired for over 1 million people in scandanavia alone, headlining festivals such as Rainbow Serpent three years in a row, and being recognised by peers and punters alike as having a 'node' of originality that is crucial in todays scene. Released on progressive labels like Zenon, Sub-machine and Zma, Domo, and firmly working with Danish Super-label iBOGA, remixing artists such as FREq, Antix and Behind Blue Eyes, SCS is an all-rounder who's deep, emotional and uplifting music has been inspiring people 'on' and 'off' dance floors for years.
Sensient is 26 year old Tim Larner from Melbourne, Australia. Having played drums in various funk/fusion bands since the age of 12, he has always had the music in him. His early days in the scene were spent in the rainforests of Byron Bay, soaking up the vibe and inspirations of such a place. Then in time he purchased his first computer and immediately began to explore the possibilities of sound creation. Now he has developed is own unique style of dark, deep and funky progressive psy. Atmosphere plays a major part in his music, and the groove factor is equally important. He tries to create a space in which the listener is free to explore his music in their own way and interpretation...nothing is rammed down the listeners throat. After many compilation releases on respected international labels like Plusquam, Flow, ZMA and Sub Machine, Sensients’ successful debut album "Blue Neevus" was released on German label Tatsu Records. In the same year he set up his own label Zenon Records releasing acts like Krumelur, Freq, SunControlSpecies, BigWigs and many more. In 2004 he completed a 3 month tour of Europe and Japan. In April 2005 he released his second album “Pressure Optimal” on Zenon Records which was heralded as a landmark release in the minimal progressive trance genre. In 2005 he made a 3 month tour of Europe and Brazil where he played at some of the biggest festivals including Voov Experience, Fusion Festival, Arvika Festival and more. 2006 saw the release of his 3rd album, Anti-Fluro, released on Zenon Records.
Tetrameth - an extremly original blend of morning/progressive trance. This man's music has an added layer of technical musicality, which truly makes the end result a beast of its own. A performer and life time musician, Tetrameth graduated with a diploma in contemory Jazz at the "Conservatorium of Music" on the North Coast of NSW. Playing in bands for several years, Peter Hayes (as he is sometimes known) is now producing psy trance at a world-class level, truly pushing and surpassing boundaries previously set within the genre.A genre or style he likes to call "Technical Progressive". Tetrameth's releases include "The Quickening" can be found on the "Intelligent Manipulation" compilation through Zenon records (Feb 2005). "Escape Sequence," written & produced by Tetrameth & Shadow Fx (aka James Hayes - Pete's brother) released on "Contact Lens" (march 2005), a compilation put together by a New Zealand label, Cosmic Conspiricy Records. In early April this year Peter released Tetrameth's debut album "Psycological Pyrotechnics" on Zenon Records,and since then has been busy playing all over the country treating audiences with his fresh blend psychedelic,melodic morning magic.A definate sunrise pleaser. By Golly! (Beat Magazine 2005)
Autonomech is Melbourne based artist Zebulan Richardson. Zeb draws on many colours, from an extensive sonic pallet, blending them to create a uniquely diverse style of experimental progressive trance. With influences of genre as varied as jazz, funk, breaks, glitch, deep house and trance with an emphasis on psychedelic experimentation and dancefloor unification, Autonomech is fast becoming one of the most sought after new progressive artists of the 06-07 summer festival season. The newest member of the Zenon family Zeb's sound is a valued new addition to their already well established vibe. The debut Autonomech album is due for release on Zenon in 06 and various compilation releases are pending on labels at home and abroad.
AUTONOMECH machines that choose.
One Tasty Morsel
OneTastyMorsel is the solo project of 22 year old Paul Van Morsel hailing from the hills of FNQ Australia. The project kicked off in early 2005 after a passion to express his musical views could not be found as an artist within the live band scene. Drawing influence from many forms of music and combining an eclectic taste in electronica with a passion for minimal psychedelic trance, the OneTastyMorsel sound lies somewhere in the middle grounds of Sensient,Autonomech and Krumelur. "OneTastyMorsel, Have you had yours yet"
