C’est sa vision unique du psytrance, ayant un petit côté tordu et excentrique, qui lui a mérité sa position en tant que l’un des manipulateurs de piste de danse les plus taquin de la scène contemporaine.
Combinaison d’une attitude tournée vers l’avenir et d’un respect pour les précurseurs, vous pouvez vous attendre à une expérience de piste de danse qui frappe fort mais qui groove, mélangeant des éléments du funk, de l’indie-électro et de psytrance puissant.
His unique take on producing fullon psytrance with a twisted and quirky edge has earned him his position as one of the most low, down and playful dancefloor manipulators in the scene today.
Combining a forward thinking attitude with respect to the oldschool, you can expect a hard-hitting yet groovy dancefloor experience mixing elements of funk, indie-electro, and rocking psytrance.
Back in the 1930s, a young James Copeland set out to avoid the curse of prohibition and form a Swing & Big Band operation in Havana, Cuba. However, a bus carrying most of the band members on the way to their 1st recording session crashed on a mountain pass and they were all killed.
New technological advances in the studio meant that a sparse recording could be made, but even more amazing was that once the tapes were processed, mysterious bits and pieces of music and phrases began to appear. It was speculated that perhaps these sessions had brought more than just James Copelands’ vision to life…

Married and father of a young son, André Stern is a musician, composer, luthier, speaker, journalist and author. He works with Professor Gerald Hüther, researcher in advanced neurobiology. He is the initiator of the youth ecological movement and director of the Arno Stern Institute (Laboratory for the observation and preservation of spontaneous dispositions in children).
Wouldn’t any of us relish to discover the keys to developing the innumerable potentials we are gifted with at birth? And who wouldn’t want to know what would happen to a child who, deeply rooted in our society and it’s modernity, would develop in this ecology of youth? What adolescent, what adult might she or he become? André Stern has lived all his life in this ecology of youth, from his birth to his paternity, and has a unique account to retell : one which stems not from personal merit but is simply a gift he has received, since this disposition is proper to each child, in the same way that the mango kernel dipped in water will inevitably grow.
