papa kola & tuf @ piknic

The code of the samurai, white magic and shamanic rites are what strongly inspires Kola Papass’ artistic approach to producing trance. He uses sacred geometry of sound by adding healing frequencies in all his compositions, combining some recent techniques of sonotherapy with old techniques connected with the calibration of the chakras. This results in high energy melodic progressive psytrance infused with profound messages and positive intensions to leave you feeling recharged and realligned.

Music is a healing force of the universe…

Zoungla

Zoungla

As early as Costa Damoulianos began to learn the letters of the alphabet he was learning the notes of the piano. At the age of twelve, he strived for a broader awareness of music and turned to the bass guitar and drums which eventually led to the discovery of his talent for playing guitar and singing. When Costa turned 17 he began his professional music career and attended Vanier Music School to learn jazz guitar.

However, the most crucial moment of his early adolescence was the day that his father introduced him to a tape mixer, this was the day when Costa first found his love for mixing and producing music. Multi instrumental curiosity led him to technologically advance in what he believes to be one of today’s most interesting musical techniques; electronic composition.

Costa takes influence from various styles of music such as Pink Floyd, Ott, Shpongle, Jeff Martin, Dream Theater, Argaman, Rush, Hans Zimmer, Pain of Salvation, Yanni, Devin Townsend and Koji Kondo. His love for music continued to expand and develop and he increasingly devoted his time towards a psychedelic direction, introducing Zoungla.

Thriving for balance, Costa paints Zoungla using ethnic sounds of the past with futuristic electronic tones, extremes from silly to sad, dark to bright, calm to intense and serious to fun.

Lynxpoint Studio is part of the twisted world of Joseph A. Ruel. Music player and composer since the age of 5, Joseph A. produced countless tracks in the last 25 years on his way to master sounds and melodies. After studying jazz, he moved to Montreal, Electro-city, to graduate in sound engineering. electroacoustics, acoustic mathematics and ethnomusicology. He then founded Lynxpoint Studio in 2006 and worked as a freelancer in vidéo games, movies and publicity until today. During this time, he got highly exposed to techno and psytrance, but for some reason his brain hadn’t mutated just yet, absorbing tempos for many years to come. It is only in 2011, when he landed on Goa’s beach that he finally got striked by the roots of trance and got to produce electronic music. Sitting with Goa’s Pirates and producing 15 hours/day for 7 weeks, he came back home with 2h of live sets and Amma’s blessing. Now a days, each new track he creates has its specific style, touch and soul. His melodies are a psychedelic travels in a strange world where anything can happen. Texture and emotion interlaces to end up striking onto the floor through your feet as the tempo gets faster and faster.

After Funk

After Funk has been causing a ruckus on the Ontario music scene with their unique sound and infectiously fun shows since their inception in March of 2011. The Toronto based power-funk group consists of Yanick Allwood (keyboards & vocals), Jaime Rosenberg (drums), Justin Bontje (bass) and Phil Tessis (guitar) who are frequently joined by a horn section and other collaborators. Their debut EP was released in January of 2014 and was mixed and mastered by Alan Evans of Soulive. An increasingly busy touring schedule led to opening spots for groups like Lettuce, Snarky Puppy, Dumpstaphunk, Kung Fu, The Nth Power and Walk Off The Earth. The band was also selected as Electric Forest’s Instrumental Forester and played two sets at the festival where they were featured alongside The String Cheese Incident, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Zeds Dead, Flying Lotus Stephen Marley and more.

Projet Æolia

The Æolia project is an initiative by actress and flutist Aurélie Morgane. Inspired by theater studies (Laurier d’argent award, St-Hyacinthe theater school 2006) and classical music (OFQJ award and solo flute performance at FIMU 2001), the young artist desires, with the Æolia project, to color the artistic landscape with her unique creative touch, producing concerts where technological visual art and theatrical scenography play a major role.
Aurélie Morgane is surrounded by established artists such as sound designers Pablo Bonacina, Steve Lalonde, Simon Lévesque and VJ Rovastar, so that her musical events can harmoniously blend scenic and visual arts, as she becomes a living work of art, a whirlwind of sound, color and movement.
