The Atriohm project was created during the year 2003 by the brothers Leonid and Aleksandar Golcev from Skopje, Macedonia.
Both have a musical education and have been involved in various musical projects: Leonid as a keyboard player and Aleksandar as a drummer.
They discovered psytrance music back in 1996 when they got touched by the magic of that sound at a party and soon after they started at first to dj chill-Out and psy-trance and then to compose their own music.
Their sound is distinguished by the magical atmospheres created thanks to massive psychedelic twists, organic sounds, deep basses and cruising melodies.
The Atriohm project have released several tracks, down tempo and trance, on different labels, like Parvati, Peak, Auraquake, Ajana, Drop Out and have played live in some of the biggest parties and psy-trance festivals around the world.
In 2009 together with Encepalophaticys, they released the split album UKALEN for Parvati records, which is regarded to be one of the milestones for the recent psy-trance music.
After the release of Ukalen Leo decided to focus on his chill project Tengri, so now behind the Atriohm compositions we find only Sashe!

Ambient and warm waves, strong synths, mellow pads, low freq-depths - all combined and perpetually converged to a streamline that navigates through the ears and body, self-defines in mind and then re-loops towards the outer, resulting in depth-leading emotions, post-physical experiences, melancholy and peace.
Producer, musician, dj, photographer, Brando Lupi’s influences range anywhere from post industrial-rock, experimental electronic to modern classical. The Italian native has had a history working alongside a number of talented artists.
Brando’s releases have been picked up by the likes of Orange Groove , Kompakt , Samuvar , Dewtone Recordings , Mental Groove , Detune Records and Elettronica Romana.
He has recently composed a score for the movie “La Solitudine Dei Numeri Primi”, distributed by Medusa,with the soundtrack signed by Mike Patton ,leader of Faith No More,and presented at the 67th Venice Film Festival.
He currently resides in Rome, spreading experimental spiritual frequencies across the world.
Commodity Place nasce dalle intuizioni musicali di due musicisti romani, Massimiliano Loretucci (Computer e Synth) e Riccardo Frosoni (Chitarre e Percussioni).
Il loro suono, caratterizzato dalle più raffinate influenze elettroniche e psichedeliche , trova un magico punto di incontro, fondendosi in un perfetto equilibrio melodico e ritmico.
Musicisti del calibro di Carl Craig, Francois Kevorkian, Manuel Gottsching, Radioslave, Paul Nazca, John Daly, Woolfy, Henrik Schwarz e Lory D, Ricky L e Sauro Cosimetti hanno riservato apprezzamenti per lo stile unico di questo giovane duo, mentre la stampa inglese non ha usato mezzi termini definendo le loro produzioni come degli autentici capolavori.
La loro prima uscita, Not Ordinary Day per la Còclea Music Ltd, aprì scenari incandescenti e visionari, un viaggio cosmico tra sonorità echeggianti di chitarra e arpeggi di synth nel quale abbandonarsi completamente.
Grande successo e stato riscosso anche in ambito Jazz dopo la loro esibizione al Dancity Festival 2010 presso l'Auditorium San Domenico di Foligno ricevendo apprezzamenti da musicisti come Bugge Wesseltoft e Alessio Bertallot.
I loro lavori risultano essere molto ricercati anche per la sonorizzazione di Documentari e Short film (come il teaser video per la presentazione dell’edizione 2010 del festival Dissonanze, uno dei festival più importanti del panorama italiano ed internazionale, ed il cortometraggio "Tiro A Vuoto" per il Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia di Roma ).
Le performance Live dei Commodity Place sono un’esperienza che unisce in maniera inscindibile corpo e mente, in un moderno viaggio psichedelico che affonda in più riprese il suo baricentro in attacchi ritmici trascinanti, conservando comunque intatta un’andatura melodica raffinata e coinvolgente, ponendosi come quanto di più fresco ed emozionante si possa pretendere oggi da un live elettronico.

In 2006, EXo becomes the first DJ to pioneer the fresh dubstep genre in Bulgaria - the audience is shocked, yet fascinated by the unexpected beat and bass pressure. That’s enough of a reason for dubstep to become EXo’s primary focus in the years to come. Consequently he proves himself as the leading dubstep DJ in the country – always with up to date selection of uncompromising sound quality.
Up to date EXo has presented dubstep on more than 70 venues, and for the listening pleasure of Bulgarian, Romanian and Greek audiences. He has performed on one stage with artists like MRK1, Foreign Beggars, Bar9, Mary Anne Hobbs, Luke Envoy, et. al. In 2007, on two big venues, HMSU’s Summer Open-air Festival 2007 and at Drum and Jazz 2007, EXo presented his experimental live dubstep project together with popular drummer Victor Alexandrov (known from the Liquid Pension progressive band). At the Aniventure 2010 Festival he presented an on stage act accompanied by the youth talent cello performer Magdalena Petrovitch.
Behind the codename EXo (mind the capital X) we find Gheorghi Penkov - a person known for his numerous activities, both in art and science. Born in 1980, he already has a definite musical experience - as a DJ, producer, promoter, music journalist and beatbox/darbuka performer.
EXo’s interest in music production and mixing dates back to 1995 when he initially got interested in interactive multimedia demos. Together with friend Martin Hristov, Gheorghi starts the demo group Ancient Media, that in consequently released the two demos – Idleness (’96) and Water Illusions (‘97). Demos are highly technological short video productions (10 mins) that render audio and video in real time.
This early interest in multimedia triggers EXo’s passion for electronic music. Between 1998-2001 he produces ambient and downtemp tracks under the SentagriS moniker. Unfortunately most of these never get released, since in 90s there is no label or company interested in such sound in Bulgaria,... net-labels are yet to come. Years later, two of these tracks are included in the digital releases Wamoxyn (2003, Z-dimension) and Acnod Tucmod Tipo (2007, Contone Records).
EXo joins H.M.S.U. by appointment with Dimitar “Targy” Dimitrov, and is with the organization since it’s very first days. By that time he's a junior drum and bass DJ, one that in the course of time gets totally devoted to the classic drum and bass (it's what we nowadays call oldskool). After H.M.S.U’s third openair festival EXo’s focus starts to slowly shift towards jungle, and eventually dub music. During his sporadic 2003-2005 appearances on H.M.S.U. events he selects mostly roots and tech dub. Then suddenly, in 2005, he goes back to dub and eventually reaches dubstep - a new sound that fundamentally changes his view on bass music, and puts his musical roaming to an end.

As many of us may know, the line between reality and fiction is very thin. This is something that Marcus experienced already as a child. He grew up at a farm in a very safe, supporting and loving environment. In his backyard playground -the woods - he had a lot of time to use his imagination, play with different dimensions and getting deep into the inner worlds. Playing the roles of both the creator, actors and audience, he built up imaginary worlds with lots of different characters and adventures.
His burning desire to share his inner worlds with others became at first possible through drawing. This he did while listening to preferably instrumental, long tracks music (like Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk, Front 242) with time to go deeper into the journey. Unconsciously knowing, he used the music as a tool for focusing, so that he could stay in the other dimensions and being able to express this.
At the age of six, he found an even more powerful way to express the inner worlds. At his families friends house, he came in contact with the piano, realizing he could create stories, using the keynotes to present different feelings, atmospheres and landscapes. He wanted to take the listener on his journey… telling the story together with the music, taking the listener into his adventure, magic and passion. This is where the seed is sown, and Marcus career sees it's first light.
The experiential with the inner had to take a break when he began secondary school. Now, most of Marcus' energy was focused on the outer world, which was very frightening for him at that time. He was bullied for showing the feminine aspects of his personality. Being scared not to fit in he started to search for an identity that fit in. The fear of others and what they thought was devastating for his creative process. This fear made him stop drawing and listen to the music he used to listen to. Instead he started to copy others and listening to music that was modern. At the same time he lost connection with his true-self in the need of fitting in.
In high-school, life stabilized when he found friends he felt had mutual interest and taste of music. Marcus started to trust himself again and his own feelings, but was still in need of his friends to like him. Nevertheless, this connection made him feel confident and safe enough to once again begin to share his passion for music, drawing and travel into the realms of the inner worlds.
1993 was the year Marcus discovered techno music. He had a life changing experience when he went to his first techno party in Christiania/Copenhagen where dj Hell and Monica Cruse was playing. Without substances or enhancement, only with music as the carrier. The hypnotic atmosphere made him feel that he was part of a sacred ritual. He cut through his tiredness and fears so that the inner powers that is embodied in all of us, came into life. Deep from within, perceiving this vivid dear inner worlds again, connecting with his true self, as when he was a child, now together with everybody --- this time he was here to stay... The choice was so natural he didn't even think about questioning it. He had to make that music, tell those stories, get people into that hypnotic state full of life. Soon after he and his friends frenetically started collecting underground techno records, creating their own parties and playing as djs.
With no musical education but a great deal of passion and stubbornness, he learned by doing how to use and manipulate drum machines, sequencers, and synthesizers. Since 1997 he has been producing music under the name Minilogue and Sonkite together with Sebastian Muellert. Their career as Son Kite took a quick start when they released their first album in 1999. They where suddenly traveling and playing clubs and festivals worldwide as Son Kite. Mostly on "trance" parties even though they them-selves never put their music under the style "trance".
And now some personal words from Marcus:
"My life has been in a very dramatic change this last years. I think I'm going through some sort of cleaning out… cleaning out my subconscious. This is good but it sometimes get a bit scary and turbulent when there is a lot of change at the same time. I have imposed this onto myself for a number of reasons… but the biggest reason was that I was not happy with my life as it where. It was time to stand up for myself and start to take control over the things that was out of control. I started experimenting with meditation, yoga and entheogens. Tried a lot of different methods of exploring my inner being. Doing this opened up a lot of new doors and new ways of seeing on the world and life. This was very good for me but I also realized that I had to make some big changes in my life to be able to live it in a more harmonious way… a way that was suitable for my life and tempo. Sebastian and I have worked together for over 15 years. We have learned so much from each other and I am very grateful for this! We both want to explore new territory within ourselves and have decided to put full focus on our solo projects and only do a few "special" Minilogue shows a year. We are both very happy about this decision :-) I really learned to stand up for myself and say what I want and what I don't want without feeling guilty for wanting it. It's not always easy telling the truth for me… and it is not always easy to know what the truth IS for ME… this is where the meditation, yoga and entheogens have helped me understand and heal myself. I have been dj'ing since 1993. Gone through many different fazes in music "styles" over the years. Discovering new ones and leaving old ones behind… and after a few years picking up some of the old ones again ;-) But one thing that has always been with me is the search for the hypnotic and psychedelic… the music that makes me go into trance… the music that inspires me to forget about myself and go beyond my normal life. My first techno years (1993-1996) I went to a lot of parties in Denmark and Sweden without doing any substances at all. I was high on the music alone… dancing for 8-12 hours nonstop… of course I had to go to the toilet a few times ;-). How could I do this 12 hours dancing without substances or enhancements???… I was in trance… like the native african people when they do drum ceremonies. I found some sort of power within myself. A power I could not find in my daily life. This is where I got "addicted" to trance! I don't mean the style trance I mean getting into a trance state.
Time passed and 1997 I met Sebastian. We connected and soon after we started the Son Kite and Minilogue projects. I became a musician. This is where I lost the old Marcus who did not think about production, mastering and how to do a techno track. I still had the hypnotic and psychedelic experience in my mind when making the music but it faded away in becoming a famous trance artist. The electronic dance music scene was changing… so did I. I felt that everything became more "commercial" and with less soul and passion for the psychedelic and hypnotic state that I was looking for. I did not realize this back then… I was just not happy about the parties anymore. Back then (2003) we where running 3 labels and a publishing company… AND touring the world every weekend as Son Kite or Minilogue. Everywhere I wen't I got the same feeling… the parties was not as they used to be. I was so into the whole industry that I was not aware that I was forgetting why I did this. Of course there where a few occasions where there was magic but it was rare. I wanted to make the "most" hypnotic set as I possibly could for the crowed so they could leave their restless life behind and go deep into the music and them selves. In 2001 an organizer in Japan contacted us for a booking. It was for a festival called The Labyrinth. A festival a few hours outside Tokyo. Up in the Japanese mountains. We where so happy to go to Japan for the first time. And I was so happy to see a crowd that really went deep into the music… like the "good" old days! I could feel the joy, hypnotic and psychedelic vibe that I had been looking for since that day back in 1993 :-). I got so much inspiration from the Labyrinth festival. This was the start of the journey back and I now remembered why I was doing this :-)"
And now back to the writer….
In 2007 he bought a little house in the forest. A lot of long walks, with the pure inspiration from the nature made an impact on Marcus, he got more patient and his music reflected this and became more spacious. His inner longing for peace and freedom grew, and shortly after, he built his studio there. Both living and working surrounded by nature alone, made it sure that the influences came from within. The interest for the inner grew stronger and Marcus went deep into meditation and yoga, even becoming a yoga teacher. Today Marcus uses the meditation and yoga as a toolbox. Tools for helping Marcus letting go of his person, and invite Nobody Home.
As a producer, Marcus vision is to create an environment for the listeners' inner journey. He knows it takes time and courage to enter oneself and to fully accept what will be put in the light. Letting go of ones expectations, projections and fears is not always "easy". But when we let ourselves loose and leave all behind we can finally meet our true self.
Since the beginning of time we Humans have a long history of using different methods of inducing altered, heightened or trance-like states. Like the native humans used rituals, drumming, dancing and chanting to get "into" an trance-like state. Trances and altered states follow the pattern of a journey: departure, traveling through (inner worlds and dimensions) space, and then returning home. In the classic shamanic journey traditions, rhythmic drumming, rattling or chanting is used to facilitate the entering into, traveling through and returning from the spirit world. Research in consciousness and brain function suggest that something called auditory driving or entrainment take place: the rhythmic beat of the drum brings the rhythms of breathing, of the heart, and of the brain into resonance or coherence with each other. This is the same thing happening when we dance together on todays modern clubs. Another method in shamanic traditions worldwide involves psychoactive, visionary or entheogenic plants or mushrooms to provide an amplification of perception. In classic enteogenic plant ceremonies the ingestion of plant is usually combined with rhythmic drumming and chanting. By the use of hypnotic and deep dance music in combination with psychoactive substances brings in the shamanic journey into todays society. In modern dance/club culture the use of psychoactive substances is well known, but how to use them in a creative and uplifting way is not… For the one who is traveling deep within, set and setting are very important factors. A safe and friendly environment is crucial, without the "right" circumstances (set and setting) there is more room for negative energies to enter the experience. This put's a responsibility on the event/club organizer…
To go deep within can take some effort. To let go of todays stressful society we need to let go of our preconceptions and roles we play in our daily life. This is where the hypnotic and psychedelic dance music come in (the ritual). The traveller is not bound by time and space or of personality or gender. We travel together to a place where there is no limitations. To a place where we are free. A place where we can be ourself without fear. A place where we all can be co-creators and enjoy ourselves as much as we possibly can.

Experimental Ambient project with a "touch of Jazz".
UFON!X is a project established by four artists from Bulgaria. "The four" improvise with sound and visuals real-time, creating their own vision of the world in sound and light.
The musical foundation is generated by Moodix, transforming rhythms, harmony and sound effect into the "landscape" of their new world.
Neyko Bodurov (trumpet) and Roel Hollander (saxophones) explore and remodel this "landscape" and bring it to live with melodic and harmonic elements.
VJ Synth converts the invisible sonic world into an experience of light and color.
Ufon!x live at Contemporary Space, Varna
