It is our 3rd birthday this year and we want to celebrate with you.
Featuring a stellar line up including our international headliners Dj Kayo (Japan) on debut in Melbourne, and the much loved Chromatone (USA).
DJ KAYO (Japan)
Kayo was born and brought up in Tokyo with plenty of musical moments in her early days. During her childhood, she learnt to play piano, Eurhythmics and classic ballet which gave her tonnes of on-stage experience. She always loved classical music and her interests only grew to include other genres such as alternative rock and metal.
As a teenager , the days of 'Acid house' and 'Goa trance' were not to be missed, and in 2004 she developed a passion for Psytrance on the neaches of Goa.
On her return to Japan in 2005, she got involved with many music and lifestyle festivals as a member of the Psy 16 crew and performed alongside some talented names like SunControlSpecies, Cosmosis, Mr. Peculiar, Phat Kontrollerz, DNA, D-Tek, U-Reckon, Quantum, Hyperception, Intersys, Vishnudata, Hydraglyph, Chromatone, Slum, Ancient Beach, and Optokoppler, just to name a few.
In 2007, she joined Sonic Traveler Music as their label DJ, while she also promoted the culture as a translator and editor for their free bilingual psytrance music and culture magazine. She was also a resident DJ for the famous 'Guerilla Party' organizers 'Raligerila', playing at their monthly Guerilla psytrance events to packed dance floors, in Yoyogi Park (the center of Harajuku), gave her recognition in the Japanese trance circuit.
Her style is often described as seamless and mesmerizing, whether it is a night time stomper or a morning euphoric journey topped with melodies. A versatile DJ with great skills in Progressive Trance, Techno, Breaks, Minimal, Tech and psytrance, DJ KAYO as a label DJ for Soundkraft Records (AU) , is a promising act and her performances leave her audience spell bound.
