Origin Festival 2016 – Headline Acts Announced
The Origin Festival 2016 headline acts have been announced and as we’ve come to expect from Good Times events they’ve come up trumps again with an excellent mix of psychedelic and progressive artists to tweak those ‘psynapses’ at the end of January.
Here are the international acts for Origin Festival 2016…
Symbolic continue to push out dancefloor stomper after dancefloor stomper. Treading a fine line between progressive and full-on this Israeli duo seem to only ever release guaranteed floor fillers with each track being a melting pot of psychedelic sounds and thumping grooves. It’s unsurprising really since DJ Osho from Symbolic has been in the scene for a very long time and is an accomplished DJ too. He founded Echoes records many years ago but Symbolic is of course signed to SA based Nano Records, easily one of the top 5 psy labels in the world today.
Symbolic is progressive psytrance without being ‘naff!’
Altruism / DJ Thatha
Brazilian DJane, DJ Thatha, is quite possibly the world’s No. 1 female psy DJ on the planet and if that sounds chauvinistic it’s not meant to be. There are just way more male DJs so separating the fairer sex, well it just seems fair. Every goddess should be put on a pedestal right? She produces under the moniker Altruism and her release on Nano Records called 311 is a real psychedelic blaster. She opened the BOOM Main stage last year as Altruism and did a DJ set on the last day of Ozora; next year she’s booked for both again. Origin Festival 2016 will be DJ Thatha’s second visit here having played Vortex a few years back where she got rave reviews for her set.
Nanoplex DJ Set
Nanoplex produce a heady mix of psychedelic techno and Chris, who is one half of the production duo, will be heading out here for his second visit to our sunny shores. Chris was here two years ago and has been chomping at the bit to get back again. He is also one of the partners in the Noisily festival in Leicester UK.
Pogo is one half of production duo Master Blasters and befitting this production name he is a true ‘master blaster’ of serious psychedelic music. The ultimate journeyman DJ with years of experience in exactly that; creating an authentic psychedelic journey, he is also working on his solo music right now.
