Viva la Reistrance!
Write up by: Sean Cook
The dancefloor held tightly to the subtle escape of light, holding for moments like a celestial blister in the vastness of space. The stirring vortex of dust and vibration hesitant in the midair weightlessness glides seamlessly between all bodies that, like the earth, moves as if on a feather. A murmuring frequency of the ground raises its voice. The brilliance of this darkness and its beauty reflect in the light that escapes. The beat continues, thick and breathing like a celestial birth, like designed chaos fulfilling its destiny. Bodies in motion with scientific precision. The murmur of the ground is now a war-cry. The beat a cadence. The void an army. The light escapes again
In between this dancefloor that breathes light and the distance of stars that reflect the expanse of time, an unmistakable roar arises. A thunder of bodies moving like electrons to an atomic symphony that collapse the measurable barriers of universal truth and transcend beyond where light has dared to travel. A rumble within our core that expresses our time to unite in one movement, a movement that rejects the idea that we are not transcendent, a movement united in trance.....
We are the ResisTrance!

Samyaza (Cosmic Egg/Anomalistic Records) Oakland, CA USA
The Dark Lord Samyaza is Bobby Bottorff, formerly known as Birds of Paradise (the original). He's been tweaking synthesizers for over a decade in his medieval dungeons. For years he was slaying basement parties with his smooth jazzy house tunes so deep you'd forget you were actually listening to dance music. No stranger to innovation, in 2011 the swiss audio chemist began producing psytrance under the moniker Samyaza, and has since developed a very distinct sound, reminiscent of eastern European or russian harmonic symphonies. These frequencies were soon picked up and charted by the legendary Goa Gil, grandfather of psytrance, as some of the most ground-breaking psychedelic trance music of our time. Fast and slow, his music bends and breaks genre barriers at will, casting a glitch in the matrix that is like peering through a glass windowpane into another dimension, only to witness the glass shatter into a million crystalline fractals that melt and transform into beads of water washing smoothly over ones soul. Prepare for a journey unlike any you've experienced before, as Samyaza helps to break the chains that once enslaved us to this realm.

Ekimskrid (Anomalistic Records/Samana records/Labyrinthine Crew) Iowa, USA
Behind Mike's shy humility lurks one of the fiercest, most talented DJs in the West, playing marathon mind-bending sets, up to twenty-seven (!) hours.
The man stared. Five crystal cubes were melting in a pool of fire as his eyes widened with joy. The flames towered over him in response to his sacrifice, pushing his tired body to the ground. He had been trapped in these woods for an eternity, scouring the dirt for five powerful artifacts in desperate attempts for knowledge. Ancient legends had led his soul on a path towards almost certain insanity, but finally his journey ended under the roars of an ancient portal covered in vines. The cubes disappeared into the earth and the flames vanished. Above, the moon shattered the darkness around him with a shining, welcoming light. From the glistening doorway, Ekimskrid emerged with a powerful grin.
The thick forest around them glowed violently, laughing and chanting as the ritual commenced. The strange figure leaned towards the adventurer and chattered frequencies into the air, creating a brilliant symphony of pure, passionate sound. As the trees danced amongst the birth of new vibrations, the powerful being reached out his hand and said, come, let me take you on a journey.
You, reader, listener, and friend, are that traveler through Ekimskrids land. Here, you will discover the unknown, expanding your mind with incredibly engulfing sound worlds hand-crafted just for you. The opportunity that lies before you is the result of extreme dedication and hard work from a talented and unique individual. If you take the time to listen, you will gladly want to stay in this incredible, new reality. Close your eyes or get up and dance, a completely different experience awaits

Shortly after, Juliana began experimenting with forms of turntablism, scratching, and some heavier styles of DnB. Her taste and love for house music began to grow, evolving in to more acid, disco/ funk, and eventually tech house and techno. By 2007, MissJuju discovered Goa psytrance and began to play some progressive and Goa sounds, which then led her to enjoy playing more full on and has taken some turns as her taste in psy evolved more into heavier/ darker full on sounds.
It is often known for Miss Juju to gently fade in between genres during one full set, always keeping a versatile yet fun and stable dance floor.

Klinz (Pinealiens/Psybass) Tyler, TX USA
The entity known as Klinz (pronounced cleanse) hails from the Piney Woods of East Texas. He first began manipulating soundwaves around 2000-2001 AD focusing on the deep sounds of Atmospheric Drum & Bass/Jungle. Around this time he was also heavily into Ambient/Downtempo & Goa/Psytrance. Around 2003 he attended his first all Psytrance event and was hooked. In early 2007 he was introduced to UK Dubstep by some fellow DnB/Jungle DJs and slowly made the transition to Dubstep. As Dubstep mutated and became darker he decided to continue to dig deeper and came upon Dubstep that infused tribal rhythms and psychedelic melodies into the music. He knew then he had found the perfect style, a sound which combined his love for psychedelic music and heavy basslines. In 2009 he began playing at Psytrance festivals bringing the sound of psychedelic tribal bass to open ears. As time and music progressed he continued to evolve his sound and added Glitch Hop to the music palette. He now continues to push the Psychedelic Bass sound across the Arklatex region and beyond. Whether its DJing, event coordinating with his crew Pinealiens, or learning the art of music production. A true music addict/nerd you can find him on the dancefloor or behind the decks chatting it up with like minded individuals. Music is his true love and passion destined to Klinz the mind, body, and soul of all who listen.The entity known as Klinz (pronounced cleanse) hails from the Piney Woods of East Texas.
