PARTY REVIEW: Bliss @TheSideShowCT

On Saturday night, I had the pleasure of swaying to the beats of Israeli, A-lister: Yonatan Marcow, better known as BLiSS.

Now that the party is over and the hangovers have subsided (hopefully!) was all the hype really worth it? The answer is yes, yes and yes! The Psyd Show never disappoints, and as usual, the crazily popular venue was pimped out to cater to all our psychadelic needs with great decor, thundering bass and a helluva lineup that took stompers from one amazing set to the next. It’s no surprise that the dancefloor was buzzing ’til the very end.

Downstairs, on the main stage, Hektek Elektrek and Gokon Rave warmed up the crowd before STEREOTYPE (SA) took over, followed by the much loved tunes of HEADROOM.

By the time he was finished rocking our faces off, we were frothing for the night’s main attraction:  BLiSS. Now, I don’t know about you but ever since I heard  BLiSS for the first time, I knew I had to jam to this man live, in the flesh. So when I heard that Aurora – SA was bringing the psy god to our beautiful city, I was just ecstatic. Not only did I experience an amazing set from Bliss upclose and personal on Saturday, things reached epic heights when the man himself shook my hand. I know, the DJ love is overwhelming. I am sure I was not the only one who suffered a little heart attack when he took out his guitar. Now, that’s some hardcore talent!

Snapshots I took from backstage of Raider and Bliss with his guitar (excuse the bad quality).

I had a great time jamming backstage as the lovely Tune Raider got behind the decks while Bliss finished off, blasting one of my favourite tracks: “A Walk In The Park” from his psyd project: The A-Team. You can listen to it here.

Upstairs, the beats were just as banging. It was really tough trying to decide which dancefloor to stomp at. Things started off in full volume with Wulfsohn, and the Fundamentals, who were absolutely infuckingsane. Check them out!

They were closely followed by the bouncing sounds of  Infectious (SA) and things only got hotter when Portal took over the decks, as well as the great DJ Bruce, Plusminus and up-and-coming psy superstar: Drang3d. 

What a great party. Thank you to Aurora – SA, The Psyd Show and of course, Yonatan Marcow. Special thanks to My City By Night for the free bottle of vodka, mixers and reserved table, and to all those who jammed with me front-left, I definitely felt the love. It’s safe to say the event was a huge success. Smiles all around.

Who is BLiSS?

BLiSS, AKA: Yonatan Marcow, was born in 1981 in a small village in Northern Israel.
At 16, with a thorough background of rock n roll guitar, he discovered electronic dance music.
His friend, Roy Engel (aka Painkiller), introduced him to the psytrance world.

Why do we love him?

“BLiSS is a musician that never slips into the current music fashion slide and stays loyal to himself while exploring new and unheard territories.”

And so true that is. BLiSS is one of the most loved international psy DJs, and is signed with
Nutek Records. His combination of musical knowledge and production skills help him to produce fresh tracks that make crowds go crazy.

After the success of his first album “The Rhythmus Gene,” in 2005, he began touring the world and performing all over the psy-trance map. In 2008 he released a second mind-blower of an album
“The Looney Bin.”

His latest album release: Build-up.

BLiSS has collaborated with A-list DJs along the way such as Psysex, Atomic-Pulse, Dynamic, CPU, Michle Adamson, Loud and, most notably, Painkiller. Together, the psy geniuses have created a new project called the A-team. March 2008 saw the release of their master-blaster debut: “Fast Forward”.
And they’ve been dropping killer beats ever since.
