Line-up /Astrix (live)
, Progression Project, Noisemaker
Hey people, Astrix is touring Australia and we have his Sydney leg which should be huge. here's the write up:
Along with fellow countrymen Infected Mushroom and UK's John ‘00’ Fleming, Israel’s Astrix is one of a handful of names who are successfully pushing psytrance out to a wider audience. Securing a place Last year in the top 20 of the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, he attributes this to his efforts to push the sound out into new horizons. “Being among the top 20 DJs of the world is a great thing, which I think has much to do with my efforts to blend trance with other genres,” he told ITM.
“I feel my fanbase is increasing every year so I guess the fans are happy to stay with me on my journey into global trance music, and I’m sure they will feel the same once they hear the new album.” As he rips through his first Australian tour in several years, Astrix is again pushing the boundaries of Trance and Psychedelic music to the fore.
Astrix’s music is known for his solid, driving basslines and ascending melodies. It is very uplifting and is usually played during sunrise and the morning at outdoor trance parties. Many would consider his style to be a crossover between “full-on” and the “clubbier” end of trance, exemplfied by his Psychedelic Academy Mix.
