Desert Dwellers(Desert Trax)
Desert Dwellers is the convergence of music producers Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe, who honed their individual skills in the mystical deserts of New Mexico and California, long before electronic music reached the mainstream. Amani and Treavor combine the raw sounds of the natural world, wrapped in dance-floor and chill-out productions; blending deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices, and cross-cultural instrumentation into a sonic incense for the mind and body. Desert Dwellers’ unique global sounds are a bridge between worlds, and their label Desert Trax has become a platform to spotlight similar alchemical artists.
Brought together in the late ‘90s through the legendary Moontribe gatherings, in 2019 the duo celebrated their 20th anniversary of making music together, adding depth to their reputation as a pioneering and prolific downtempo, psybass, and tribal-house act from the United States. The culmination of two decades of partnership has forged their Beatport number 1 selling electronica album BREATH, out on Black Swan Sounds, which features more than 20 musicians and vocalists over a 10-track nomadic journey.
Keyframe has been involved in Electronic Music Culture since the 90’s as a dancer, music label owner, event promoter, film producer, artist manager, and has worked with the Ultra Music Festival and Lucidity. Keyframe is thrilled to share sonic gems uncovered over decades of exploration and LOVES to conjure unique mixes tailored to a festival’s vibe, audience, and atmosphere.
Keyframe values shamanic chill sounds filled with complexity & harmony. His music selection spans many different cultures and weaves intentional mellow grooves with psychedelic overtones.
Yuli Fershtat (Digital Structures)
Yuli split his Perfectly Strange project few years ago to be free to play the tech stuff under his own name and leave the more Trancey materials for Perfect Stranger. Under his name he played some of the finest moments in Boom 2014 and 2016, last three years at Ozora festival in Hungary, Rainbow Serpent in Australia, Symbiosis Festival and Eclipse Gathering right here – just to name a few. Yuli also owns the Digital Structures label where he releases his multi genre vision of psychedelic tech.
Perfect Stranger (Iboga Records)
The Perfect Stranger project was born pretty randomly in 2005, when Iboga label boss Michael Banel suggested that Yuli start making some progressive tunes. Fortunately for us, Yuli’s response was “Sure, why not!”. The following year saw the release of his debut album “Learning=Change” on 5th of February, which also happens to be Yuli’s birthday. A year later came the release which marked a milestone for Perfect Stranger – “Changed” – a remix CD which gave rise to some of the most epic tunes which still reign dancefloors today. The release of “Free Cloud” in 2008 took the Perfect Stranger sound to its peak and made its mark on the scene with a unique psy-tech sound that had been unprecedented before.
From here on, the Perfect Stranger sound had it’s distinctive soundscape and a genre within it’s own. Now that Yuli had everyone’s attention, he took another big step forward with the album “Leap of Faith” in 2012, and marked yet another huge milestone in the Perfect Stranger story, unleashing a long list of epic tunes with timeless soundscapes and perfect groove.
