Dear Beholders of Secret Identities and Super Powers,
We're extremely excited to announce our next collaboration ~HEROES & VILLAINS~ coming up Saturday, March 10 with the West Coast collective Full Circle. We have a new secret lair in Boerum Hill Brooklyn, a 2 floor converted church that is absolutely magnificent!
Headed up by the WICHDOKTA himself the Full Circle crew has been a driving force in the US psychedelic EDM culture since 1996. They are the creators and producers of the legendary Gemeni festival, a *FREE* gathering that took place on the majestic Eel River of Northern California from 1997.
On this journey, the WICHDOKTA brings with him a special medicine to share with us all, a full power *LIVE* set from RANDOM (aka RANDOM ROBOT) who has not performed in New York in over four years, a special treat indeed.
We've also rounded up the Northeast's most superhuman DJs including BORIS BURNING ELF from Kostume Kult, DAVE DITTMER from Sonic Beating and an incredibly sexy fire show that will give you powers you never knew you had. So grab that cape and come as your inner Hero, Villain or both, gather your sidekicks and prepare for the party of a lifetime!

My name is Ross and I was born in 1978 and the San Francisco Bay Area has been my home and source of inspiration for all of my life. In 1996 I heard Psychedelic Trance and chose the path of being a psy-trance musician and DJ. I make and play music inspired by the environments where I have lived, and crafted for the parties that I have played at around the world.
Growing up in Northern California placed me amongst incredibly diverse music scenes. My goth punk roots collecting EBM and Industrial led me to Techno then Hard Trance a bit of Jungle, Hardcore, Acid Techno, and then my first GOA records. In 2001 after four years of Djing and throwing parties my mind got set on serious music production. My music is formed from all of my music tastes and is created for fun dance floor moments.
I've played at events big and small throughout North America, Mexico, Japan, and Europe with many psy artist from around the world. Performing live and Dj sets at events such as Boom Festival 08', Burning Man, the Ultra Music Festival, SF Love Fest, and countless more indoor and outdoor parties and festivals. 'Implicate Order' my debut album was released in 2006, new material will be released to the world soon.
The Wichdokta began DJing in '96 and formed the FULL CIRCLE COLLECTIVE in Mendo, Nothern Cali. In '97 he began throwing the infamous gathering called "GEMINI" that was held on the majestic Eel River. In '2000 he met up with Dr. Spook and created the loving PHOENIX FAMILY COLLECTIVE. He also runs the sound company FULL CIRCLE PRODUCTIONS. As a promoter and gathering thrower, he knows what gets the people going. The Wichdokta's sets are something of a spectical to witness, his amazing energy and sinister music go hand in hand to give you the ride of your life on the dancefloor. Hailed as one of the top DJ'S in San Fran-psycho, he has played with the best in industry; Neuromotor, Rastaliens, Alien Project, Mr. Peculiar, Miraculix, Lemurians, Devient Species, Scorb, CPU, Sirius Issness, Earthling, Xenomorph,Highko and many many more. " I like it Harder, Darker, and more Psychedelic"...Wichdokta

Luis's talents were also showcased at Brazil’s most prestigious music festivals such as Skol Beats and the Love Parade attended by nearly 200,000 people.
In the late 90s, Luis founded one of the first Brazil's live electronic band, Influx. At the release of MTV's first Amp album, Influx performed for over 30,000 people.

Intoxicated with sound, Felipe Linares heard the irresistible call of a siren beckoning him toward a life of music at an early age. Once a guitar player in a hard-core band, Felipe's passion transformed overnight-the night he attended his first psytrance party. His entire focus was then immediately devoted to psytrance which set Felipe on a new path in life, a path that took him from São Paulo to New York where he was soon hypnotizing the crowd with a powerful melodic set mixed to perfection at his first Psycheground party. Felipe has since delivered impressive performances at many of the most prestigious events on the East Coast including SubCulture, Pulp, tekno*feel*ya, Sync, Pex Festival as well as Universo Paralello in Brazil.
Felipe now resides in New York City where he is a resident artist at Psycheground in addition to designing sound systems for parties and clubs and pursuing a degree in Audio Engineering. Always immersed in music, Felipe spends the rest of his time developing his talents in the studio and is in the process of producing his first release.
