EarthDance Amsterdam 2004


Groningen is one of the breeding pits for psytrance in the Netherlands. The vibrant atmosphere must've drawn at least a few into making music with a psychedelic edge. Is it the funky art spread all over town or is it because of the strong connection with psytrance label since 1996 BooM! Records ?

EarthDance Amsterdam 2004 presented - from up north - live psytrance performer Bassid, a talented producer who has seen his first release in August 2003 on Crotus Records with a 12". Sunlight Records released Sunset Trip on their Free compilation in April 2004.

Aged 7 Bas started with a classical training on the piano. At 13 he joined a bluesrock band and getting more and more intrigued with the idea of improvisation he quit his piano lessons two years after. Bas moved to Groningen to study at the age of 18 where he met new friends who hooked him up with electronic music. This was a turning point in his life and he started experimenting with live ambient music.

Gradually, his scepticism for electronic composition faded. Bas discovered Rebirth and started making big beat, techno and trance. Plunging through these styles he developed a love for psychedelic trance.
