Gathering 2: Sideproject's 5th Birthday Celebration - Friday 24th October at Mercury Bar
Sideproject celebrates it’s 5th Birthday and 5 years of ‘doof doof’ music.
Sideproject has always liked to celebrate birthday’s in style and this event is no exception.
PSYBORIGINAL (2 hours live)
Psyboriginal is Marc Freund from Sydney, Australia Since 2004, his live sets have focused on spawning an environment conducive for explosive, energetic, and sometimes unpredictable trancefloor reverberations. The Psybo-sound depicts that indescribable moment between night and day -ethereal and uplifting to bring in the morning, yet mysterious and menacing enough to wreck nocturnal havoc. Marc’s versitility as an artist is further evident in the incorporation of guitar and vocals in a few of his tracks.
The Psyboriginal sound is one that is constantly changing and evolving; during his time in Belgium in 2004, Marc became decidely influenced by morning psytrance. However, upon returning to his native Australia,things took a trip to the dark(er) side, as his music adapted both a harder, more sinister edge as well as greatly increasing in overall doofability.
The present end result – a unique style that weaves together all the right elements, fabricating a perfect groove guaranteed to ignite any legion of doofers with positive vibes. In the past he has worked alongside fellow Aussie producers Dark Nebula, Fractal Glider, Legohead and Illusion of Self. As well as some recent collaborations with Hydraglyph and Slum, Chromatone and Electrypnose.
Psyboriginal has kicked up dust on dancefloors all over Australia as well as in Germany, Austria, Belgium, UK, Spain, Czech Rep, Portugal,Slovakia, Slovenia and Hungary. He has also played all over India (Delhi, Chennai, Pushkar, Bangalore, Bombay, Jaipur) as well as Dubai, Nepal and all over Mexico, Costa Rica and Guatemala
His worldwide album release date has been set for 25th July on Psypneumatix records. Copies of the album can be purchased at the door for the reduced price of $15.

M3ow (DJ) – M3ow is a experienced and versatile artist and one of Canberra’ leading producers. Things have been on the up for M3ow recently with a steady stream of music coming out of the studio and an increasing number of gigs. We look forward to hearing a chill set from him.
Ugly Bunyip (DJ) – It’s probably fair to say that Regrowth 2007 was a life changing experience for Ugly Bunyip. Since then he has been involved in all aspects of psy culture in this region, including learning how to mix tunes. We welcome Ugly Bunyip to 5th Birthday for what promises to be a smooth set of progressive psychedelic music.
Freebass Toad (DJ) - Freebass Toad has played some quality sets in recent times at a number of different events around the Canberra region. Expect a set of emotional progressive music with an Aussie producer focus. Signed, sealed and delivered on the laptop.
Psyentology (DJ) – Chris and Tom from Psyentology have been working hard in recent times becoming masters at the art of starting a party. They possess a diverse range of psy trance, ranging from uplifting melodic, to deeper and darker, to chunky and funky. Expect to get moving when these two hit the decks.
Tarik (DJ) – Anyone who spends an average of 15 hours a day mixing is likely to become pretty good at, you know, mixing. This is the case with Tarik, who probably actually spends around 15 hours a day mixing. Come and hear the man they call T-Unit rip apart the Mercury Bar with another hour of peak time psytrance.
Alamout (DJ) – After rocking the main stage at Dragon Dreaming Festival, we welcome back the Canberra master of the dark for what is sure to result in complete dancefloor destruction. With years of experience and vast quantities of awesome tunes, we know from experience what to expect from this man.
