Technology is the psytrance project of Fernando Ribeiro who hails from Porto Alegre in the South of Brazil. Created in 2009, Technology’s musical style fluctuates between night-time and day-time orientated sounds, ranging from 134 to 146 BPM. Expect short breaks, frantic synths and varied bass lines that take you on a journey through the subconscious.
We were fortunate enough to chat with Technology ahead of his first-ever performance in South Africa at PsynOpticz presents Jungala Festival 2017.
Hi Fernando! Thanks for chatting with us. First off, tell us a bit more about yourself. When did you first discover psytrance, and when did you decide you wanted to become a producer?
Hi guys! First off, thank you for this interview. I initially discovered psytrance when I was 15 years old and attended a party in Porto Alegre with Astrix on the line up. I decided that I wanted to become a producer when I was 18 after seeing a friend play – I remember feeling very moved by the fact that of DJ could send a subliminal message through music to the people.
