Breathead is Vicente Marín from Guánajuato, Mexico. First drawn to electronic music in 2000, he entered into the world of psytrance as a DJ but soon went on to producing his own beats. Breathead is currently signed to Psynopticz and Catalyst Records México. His style can be described as “psychedelic groove music” charged by powerful high-tech sounds and driving basslines.
We got a chance to chat with Breathead ahead of his return to South Africa for Jungala Festival 2017. Keep reading for the full interview.
Hi Vicente, thanks for chatting to us! Tell us a bit about where your love of psytrance first began – do you remember the first trance party you ever attended? And was there a definitive moment when you realised you wanted to start creating psytrance of your own?
It started with the passion I’ve possessed since I was a child, when my father would listen to psychedelic rock or progressive rock (call it whatever you want). Exploring his CDs and vinyls, I discovered a connection to the music and the psychedelic element. My first party was in the desert of Mexico in 2000 (Peyote Land). I started mixing and producing in 2002 when I realised I was born for this, the psychedelic music.
