Behind the scenes with Valley of Psy + friends

Valley of Psy is the resident psy event for the Cape Town’s Southern Peninsula. What began as a bi-monthly gathering at the Bush Pub quickly evolved into one of the scene’s most frequented parties with monthly and even weekly events – all under the fruitful guidance of the Lili (Myzo) and Stuart Vermaak (Hiyarant).

“We like to party close to home, and love intimate trance parties with good vibes and energy,” says Hiyamyzo. “It all started as a ‘why not?’ The DJs and party people began asking us when the next one would be. We got more and more excited about the concept and decided to throw parties more often. We really love the fact that we get messages everyday from Valley of Psy fans or upcoming DJs requesting to play on our events.” Continue reading Behind the scenes with Valley of Psy + friends

Azax returns to South Africa- get your trance boots ready.

Everyone’s getting psyked for outdoor season but let’s not forget one especially exciting party that’s to be had on Saturday night at The Side Show. What’s all the hullabaloo about you ask? Well, Azax Syndrom is returning to the Cape of Good Dope (I mean hope). Don’t worry if you missed his mind blowing set at One World Festival (watch the video here), you can catch him live, loud and lucid this weekend. Find out all the event details here.

A little bit of background about the man behind the decks?
Like most of of the Psy Greats, Regev Azaria (AKA: Azax) is Israeli. His musical career began when he was a lead singer of a heavy metal group in the early 90’s. However, when he was introduced to electronic music and the psytrance culture, his fascination took over and so decided to start making his own music at the beginning of 2003.

azax

The combination of Regev’s musical background with his psytrance influence is what gave birth to the banging beats of Azax Syndrome.  Ever since, Azax has been touring the globe and playing at every significant stage and festival on the psy map.  He has collaborated with top international DJs such as BLiSS, and continues to delight our ears with power trance that’s true to form.

 

 

His music?
One might call it power trance, but really it’s a roller-coaster ride consisting of high-energy, cutting edge sounds, heavy riffs, crisp metal melodies, pumping baselines and heavy beats, all ingeniously fused together.

So, get your trance boots ready because I have no doubt the dance floor’s going to be PUMPING. What’s a better way to warm up for The Sunflower Festival?

Review: Freedom Fighters LIVE @ SideShow

On Saturday the 15th of June, Freedom Fighters (aka Shahaf Efrat) performed live at Side Show and rocked the crowd so hard they’re still feeling the effects.

Other highlights included HEADROOMDeliriant & Shift. While  Chemogen, EMP, Archive and Strain  kept the upstairs dancefloor pumping.

One party-goer describes the event as, “hands down one of the best indoors I’ve ever been to.” And judging by the smile-wearing, boot-stomping crowd (and super positive Facebook feedback) she is not the only one.

_____________________________________________________________________________
Special thanks goes to 6th Sense Psytrance, the organizers of the event.
Myles Kamermans (Check out Myles Design to see more of his work) and Mungus Fungus for the psychedelicious décor that provided us with copious visual bliss. As well as Anonymous Visual Design for the Stage Mapping, Psychedelic Theatre and Fire Tribe. (And everyone else who was involved).

If you were there, I’m sure you can agree it was a major success. Personally, I cannot wait for the talented psy guru Shahaf to return to South Africa.

Below is a picture of the man himself admiring our city’s beauty.
