Hello Mat. Please tell us about mushroom magazine. Mushroom magazine founded in 1994 has become the world’s leading print medium for the global Psytrance culture in its now 19 years of existence. Almost every two months up to 50.000 copies are being distributed at hot spots of the scene, covering reports about music, parties, culture, DJ & producer technology, fashion, visions and much more... Can you tell us a little bit about yourself - and how you became involved in the Psytrance/Goa music scene? What is your most psychedelic and memorable moment? I started listening to electronic music at the beginning of the 90s, still in the early days of Techno and converted soonish to Psytrance after my first Goaparty experience. At the beginning mushroom magazine was not purely a Psytrance magazine. When it started it was a local fanzine for electronic music in the Northern part of Germany. But already with the first edition we published the news that Voov Experience would come to my hometown Soltau near Hamburg/Germany. After visiting a lot of Techno raves from 1992 to 1994 I started my Goatrance life because I was so impressed with this cultural movement and the special parties. From this time I changed my party life more and more towards Psytrance and also the magazine reported about psychedelic music and was converted totally into a countrywide Psytrance magazine till 1998. So the first Goaparties in 1994 with a new and exciting music culture changed my life a lot and I wanted to get the word out about this wonderful music and scene. To tell you the truth I have been searching for a similar modification since then when Goatrance altered my outlook in 1994. No psychedelia have brought me this kind of groundbreaking change. Hey, I am Mat Mushroom ;-) What is the meaning and essence that mushroom magazine is trying to show/tell to your thousands of readers from
all over the world? I got to know the Trance community as a wonderful global movement. mushroom magazine is the medium to shout that out to the people. Where do you plan to take mushroom magazine in the future days? This year we relaunched the Trancers’ Guide To The Galaxy after a 5 year break. This travel guide features 35 psychedelic country profiles to inform the people about the history of the local scenes and show them where they find the Psychedelic Community. You can order the guide in our online shop www.mushroommagazine.com/shop Furthermore we are working on a new website to host our masses of content in a state-of-the-art style. You are also DJ Mat Mushroom... Yep, I played through the times of vinyl, then mixed with cds and, comparatively very early, began to use the revolutionary opportunities of the digital DJ. What’s so revolutionary with this technology? My mix is not a sequence of different tracks when I play with computer and controllers. The set is assembled from single components and every track becomes a remix of its own. It just got too boring to simply select the tracks, to mix transitions. I wanted more! I wanted fun and action again. I wanted to be able to manipulate the music. I wanted to play with sound. Finally with progressing technology this became possible: whether beatjump, different cue points, the playing of samples or many great effects which morph the sound, let groove, hash or let lay on other tracks all subtle. This sounds like a real life act... It’s more than this. Many live acts but push the play button of their sequencer software for their performance and only have a controlled “live act“ from beginning to end. I can intervene much more creatively in the sound. With various specialised controllers I can exploit my mix to the utmost of the technically feasible. Despite these manifold technological possibilities the focus on the right track selection does not suffer. Call my sound “From Prog-o-phoric Psytrance to Psych-o-delic Progtech”,
1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you became involved in the Psy Trance/Goa music scene? Francesco: In 2000 started to go to raves and parties around London, in 2001/2002 started to djing psy after attending the legendary Chichime parties. After that got interested in production and started to learn the trade... Kristian: I have been in psy trance scene as punter since 95 and as dj since 2000, in electronic dance (rave scene) since 93ish. i originally come from Gibraltar but live in London since 97. 2. What inspires you the most as a artists? Francesco: Personally I can be inspired by most diverse things, like a good movie, good music, nice meal, a picture etcâ€Ś As a model for our sound, we always reference to producers such as: Domestic, Astrix, Xi, GMS, Daft Punk, Prodigy, Pryds, Deadmau5 and all the good sounding ones. Kristian: In Psy I take influence from XI, Juno Reactor, Domestic (old stuff before it went cheesy). Plastic Vibe, some Gms and I like Ticon as every track in album sounds different something 98 percent of releases these days lack. 3. Tell us please about Dejavoo Project... Dejavoo are Dj Kristian, well known for his international Djing around the globe and his compilations as Dj and AnR of Transient Recs and now dj for Darcu Recs and Francesco Mura (Aka Plastic Vibe an act to watch out for with its debut album out in YSE/ Millenium Recs Germany). We aim to make big Psy sounds combining elements of other electronic music genres but always keeping it Psy. We have been working together since 2005 and started to make an impact after our debut album Future Shock 2008. We had a feature in the world famous Dj MAG in which we where interviewed in the Fantastic four article, and have played in countries like USA/Brazil/Portugal/Swiss/Germany/Ireland/Slovakia/Holland/Denmark/Turkey/Greece/Holland/Italy/ Austria/Sweden and all over UK. 4. Do you have any other side projects that you are currently working on? Francesco: I have a solo project called Plastic Vibe, which has a more experimental and more progressive structure then usual. Trying to write more out of the box music. I am also starting to write some techno and house...
5. What destinations (countries) have had a positive impact on your music career? To many to mention it would be unfair have played in a lot of countries. 6. As producer Use one word to describe the overall essence of your sound? Francesco: Powerful driving and not formulated Psy-Trance. 7. Please share your favorite moments in psytrance clubs, festivals, parties, etc. with our readers? Again too many to mention, a great reaction from the floor is one to mention. 8. What do you think the future holds for this specific genre of music? At the moment it seems to be getting smaller in many places, though i must say in Israel the outdoor parties seem to be booming again like the old days. in South Africa as well. But most other places it just shrinking with week in week out events going smaller and smaller, only one off big event like in new year and halloween etc seem to be ok, and of course the big festivals which act as a yearly reunion for many but these are few and far between, so somthing must be done. 9. Are there spiritual connections linked to your tracks? how do they influence you energetically while performing? The spiritual thing for me is doing good to fellow humans, not been fake or cheating them and been fair its just a basic code to be followed no matter how u look or what religion or fad u follow, u should always practice this code as best as possible, and ego in the pocket very important , especially in out scene. 10. What is your most psychedelic moment in your experience with this music culture? Too many to mention lol and many great ones. 11. Please share any words or message(s) that you would like to share with the Digital Oracle Magazine readers. Keep you minds open, listen to music for what it sounds like and not for what tag it has or what brand it belongs to, or who likes it.
