:: Mindfull Presents ::
Journey to the beauty of deep Northern California forest land for a 48 hour gathering of psychedelic vibrations to align with rhythms of natural life in a return to your connection with all that is. Release limiting karma, drama and trauma in an alchemical odyssey of awakening to the inner wisdom within universal patterns of energy flowing as a river through wild ageless spaces. Allow the guidance of nature to enrich your path with more grace, joy, clarity, purpose, passion and creativity for manifesting visions.
On the weekend of Earthdance we join a global dance ritual sending energetic roots to the planet's core and drawing dark Mother Earth essence spiraling to the heart of cosmos for reunion with source. Derango returns with more of their Swedish forest magic in a live performance unlike any you will experience on this side of the world along with Ghreg On Earth's first fully live set in California and many others from talented local artists over two days of music progressing through a diverse range of psychedelic genres.
Jens & Ola began writing distinctly well crafted psytrance in 2000 which has earned them much respect over the years through phenomenal live performances and groundbreaking releases like their debut album Tumult in 2005. The creativity of Derango is a full expression of the psychedelic experience transferred in music. Their huge sound pictures are created combining a solid warm base with waves of sounds from synths and samples in constant change and movement. The result is a unique wrapping effect that gives to the listeners on one side the safe feeling of the belonging to mother-earth womb and, on the other side, the challenge of discovering and understanding that our mind and spirit have no borders.
In the two years since his widely acclaimed debut album Sigilweaver and appearance at the first Mindfull gathering Ghreg has composed an evolution of his unique sound to be shared through powerful live performances including new material from the coming album. As an aural architect, he constructs sonic structures of mysterious, melodious worlds which offer spaces otherwise concealed in the deep abyss of the subconscious. Guided by his passion for cutting edge music, art and literature from the psychedelic and mystical underground, his timeless sound realizes the magical properties of music to guide people into cinematic passages of expanded personal experience.
Arahat (Psycircle :: San Diego)
Tom has been scrambling brains for over 12 years with masterful mixes of twisted, groovy, powerful night time psytrance under the moniker Hidroponik. He recently began channeling his own frequencies as Arahat and in collaborations like Arabali (with Mubali), Monks of Madness (with Bodhisattva 13:20), and Brains (with Bodhi and Mubali). His live emanations will send you on a trip through unreal dimensions of aural psychedelia.
Dog Of Tears (Xexify :: San Francisco)
Ranging from chaotic noise to dronescapes to industrial beats, David Cohen has been making electronic music of numerous forms under a variety of pseudonyms for the past 11 years. Upon moving from the metro-west area of Massachusetts to Los Angeles four years ago, Dog of Tears became deeply involved in the psychedelic scene and began melding his electronica obscurica with unique, woofer-rattling analog psytrance. In recent months he began collaboratting on a project with Amanda Karg of MoE known as Mugwort Moon. Prepare for an onslaught of dark, driving, distorted frequencies and rhythms replete with live modular analog synthesizer tweekage.
AnachroniD (Mindfull :: Los Angeles)
Hailing from the dark mysterious forests of Northern California and the concrete jungle of Southern California, Peter and James have been making music together off and on since 2001. This duo created AnachroniD in the beginning of 2005 to explore the depths psychedelic trance has to offer with a focus on creating primal, twisted, organic music.
