Review: Vortex Parallel Universe 2015

I entered the Parallel Universe just before noon on Sunday – a little later than planned, but nevertheless I was there. When we got to the dance-floor Lucas was closing up shop. Beside him, Raja Ram’s fluorescent-orange peak cap bobbed up and down to the music.

008 - MFeqk7q

Excitement moved through me as I dissolved into the crowd. Revelry was in full swing, and it wasn’t hard to tell who had been there from the start. Whether brightly clean or slightly bruised and battered, everyone had come to witness the Godfather of Psytrance in action. Suddenly the floor was packed.

Review: The Collective Paradise Beach

As the days progressed, my excitement reached its peak. I was more than ready to party it up on the beach with the masterful Morten Granau. I’ve got to hand it to The Collective for pinning Kogel Bay as the venue for their first-ever psychedelic gathering.

Getting psyked all over the globe!

Everyday I experience a small wave of excitement when I log onto my blog’s stats.

What’s most mind-blowing for me is that I’m sitting somewhere, at the tip of Africa, writing about what’s going on in our little city, and sharing it with people I never imagined I’d talk to… and so fast!

This world really has become a global village thanks to the internet, as well as the psytrance and culture that connects people all over the planet. And a small but beautiful planet it is. 

 

Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, where-ever you are.
I hope you’re getting psyked in your city.

Review: Beartrap- Mystical Contact

So, Monday is here. Time to put our party hats away and our thinking caps back on – for now.
But before you do that, let’s reflect on the weekend’s highlights.

On Saturday night I had the pleasure of psyking out to the legendary
Eddie Zaltsman (Mystical Complex) and Didy Ezra (Bizzare Contact) at the Side Show,
one of Cape Town’s hottest venues right now). These psy-sensations had the
crowed bouncing, swaying and stomping til they simply couldn’t anymore.

Along with psyko international tunes and a kick-ass lineup, that included local talent like PortalPsyDJay MarkSwaysHiFt, Flyp PSyd, Sci Lab (Mungus Fungus), Chemogen & D Ranged,
the “day of the dead” themed decor was absolutely mind-blowing.

Snapshots I took at the party.

It’s evident that the organisers went the extra mile to ensure
a great party experience for all. The “Fez Face” was psyked out for the occasion with
flower-power projection mapping, and everywhere I looked, from the ceiling to the DJ box,
I was greeted with majestic eye candy.

The event was made extra special by the Día de Muertos performers (from fire-breathers to
hula-hoopers), who were transformed with body-art by Michaela Young and Mix Makeup. Super cool.

It certainly was a mystical night. From the tight security to the awesome decor, vibrant atmosphere
and the love that pumped all the way through, thank you Beartrap Productions for making it happen.
Having been involved in the trance scene for over ten years, their experience and expertise shine through. They know how to throw a killer party.
Can’t wait for the next one!

Review: Perfect Stranger- Multiverz

I woke up to the exciting news on Friday morning that I was one of three lucky prizewinners for the Psymedia Giveaway I wrote about earlier this week (read it here).  Upon arrival at Trinity, I received an awesome Multiverz hamper (that included 2 tickets to the Event, 4 Perfect Stranger CDs and 2 T-shirts).  What a way to start the evening! Congratulations to the other prizewinners: Cheslyn Oliver and Casey Lynn Curtis. I hope you jammed as hard as I did. ______________________________________________________________ multied Snap shot I took. StereoType had Trinity pumping from the get-go, and warming up the crowd nicely before main attraction, Perfect Stranger, took center stage. The atmosphere on the dance-floor was truly incredible, there were happy faces all around. After 3 blissfully progressive hours, it was Dave Mac’s turn to make turn to keep the dance-floor buzzing ’til the lights came on. And he did. Dave was even kind enough to give the crowd “one last song!” Scott Rennie captured the evening’s events on camera. View the photo’s here.

As you can see, the eye-candy was out of this world. From the trippy decor to one of the best light shows I have ever experienced at a party, well done to ImageMasterBlinkSLAVE and MULTIVERZ for keeping us positively hypnotised.

Thank you to everyone involved; organizers and stompers. It was a magical night for all.
