Tarwa N Ayur乐队

正如我们告诉这位新潮合唱艺术家歌手和吉他手Sarah Mou一样,柏柏尔古语中的Tarwa n Ayur意思是月亮的孩子,这也是四重奏的灵感来源。

吉卜赛音乐集Tarwa n Ayur创造了西方与东方融合的世界旋律。



Arno D. & Johannes:

Arno来自于南法,1995年移居伦敦,于2004年开始了"Soul berries",一个推广Funky beatsDJ聚落音乐项目。带着大量碎拍以及Tech-House,他们曾经在 Herbal, Aquum, 333, the White House, ministry of sound等等地方演出。


他们在过去的5年里一起合作,他们的演出是Techno/Tech-House的风格流派,根据不同情景他们也将融入Chill step以及Bass




Aktüman 并没有经常作为DJ的身份亮相,但是他在各大音乐节已经出没了将近十年。在多文化环境中成长,逐渐变成音乐的狂热爱好者,他一直在他的收藏里不断添加那些富有异域风情的声音、地下音乐家以及未知的宝藏。




15岁的时候在比利时出生并长大的Kodama搬到伦敦了。在全球的音乐首都,他在Dome接触了Psytrance音乐。目前在中国十年多了,他大部分的时间花在发展Psytrance的场面和文化。他在各种各样的现场举办过派对,包括ckb dkd,G+,MAO,Park 97等。其中的派对已经成为上海派对场面的传说了。为了进一步推广Psytrance文化和音乐,他加入了Goaproductions,中国最有活跃的Psytrance唱片公司。



Ancient Alias

Ancient Alias是开普敦Fabian Goodwinpsytrance DJ。他的音乐流畅,倾向于更高级的节奏,从146152BPM甚至更多,并融合了光明和黑暗的主题。他以饱满的情绪在森林、深沉和黑暗的声音之间编织,用强烈的剧情感和富有能量的铺底来探索音乐,试图让听众沉浸在一种身临其境的听觉、理智和情感的旅途中。

Tarwa N Ayur乐队

Tarwa n Ayur in ancient Berber language means ‘children of the moon’, that is also the inspiration of the quartet, as told us Sarah Mou, the singer and guitarist of this very new collective of artists.

The gipsy collective Tarwa n Ayur creates a fusion between the west and the east, with melodies of the World.



Arno D. & Johannes:

Arno came from South France and moved to London in 1995. In 2004, he started "Soul berries", a DJ settlement music project that promoted Funky beats. With a lot of shots and Tech-House, they used to perform in Herbal, Aquum, 333, the White House, ministry of sound and more.

Born in Berlin, Johannes began playing African drums in 2001 and entered the world of electronic drums. Now he brought Looper and FX into his performance.

They have worked together for the past 5 years and their performances are in the style of Techno/Tech-House, and they will also be integrated into Chill step and Bass depending on the situation.





Aktüman is making his debut as a DJ, but he has been going to festivals for about a decade. Growing up surrounded by many cultures and beign a big fan of music, he always seeks new exotic sounds, underground artists and unknown gems to add to his collection.



Born and bred in Belgium, at the age of fifteen Kodama moved to global music capital London where he picked up his love for psytrance at the now legendary Drome.

Now already over a decade in China, he spent most of that time as half of Magic Garden planting the seeds of the global psychedelic trance scene, throwing fully decorated parties at iconic venues (some now long come and gone) such as club dkd, G+, MAO, Park 97, Madam Zung, Rojam, SOS, Babyface, Shelter, Dada, Logo, Cinderella etc.

Some of these events, such as the two year Full Moon residency at dkd, the G+ Halloween Monster Bash attended by 2800 people and the Nine Year Anniversary at 1933 – Asia’s largest (now defunct) art deco abattoir - have gone down in Shanghai nightlife folklore.

Further afield Kodama has had the pleasure of playing ZOOM Bar on Koh Phangan Beach, Thailand. Bringing over internationally renowned psy-trance artists such as Shane Gobi, Vishnudata, Life Extension, he has also shared the decks with Paul Taylor, Martian Arts and Braincell.

Kodama is now proud to be a member of GoaProductions, the foremost Chinese psytrance outfit which are pushing the scene forward with a label, nationwide international artist tours and proper outdoor festivals.

His technical sets range from progressive to full on psy; driving, techy yet melodic and always tuned into the crowd. Providing the perfect balance to his powerful dance floor sets he also spins luscious downtempo across the whole spectrum, ranging from ambient through dub to lounge.



Ancient Alias

Ancient Alias shifts a few feet sideways from the VJ panel to the DJ decks for a special downtempo set. Unlike his driving psychedelic trance which straddles the line between dark and twilight, at XIA he will show a different side of his musical character. An immersive aural journey will take you through melodic glitch and dub, whilst keeping the familiar psychedelic edge.
