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.

PSYKED:
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?  

TECHNOLOGY:
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.

Looking back: Origin Festival 2017 highlights

“Can you see the colours? Everything is so trippy.”

If you love a good dance-floor banger, you’re probably familiar with this vocal – it comes from a track by Vini Vici,  Tristan & Avalon called Colours, and it’s exactly what comes to mind when I think back to Origin Festival. This year Origin pulled the rabbit out of the hat, giving us a jaw-dropping “candy land” themed dance-floor and the same top-notch production we’ve come to know and love over the years.
