Arjuna

Italy

Born in the Himalayas and raised in Goa, Arjuna was fortunate to witness the birth and evolution of the mystical genre called psytrance up close and personal. The trigger of his passion was pulled when he started collecting psytrance DATs and mini disks at a very early age. He got his first shot behind the decks at the age of 19, and since then he was influenced in leaps and bounds by Giuseppe from Parvati and Teo from Discovalley. His first attempt at knob-tweaking on Cubase was made possible at the Discovalley studio in Chapora. It didn’t take him much time to cement his vibe on the scene as he quickly became a representative of Parvati Records as their label DJ. He followed this up with a production course at SAE and debuted with his first release on Parvati as well. His sound is described as intense and groovy, a balanced combination of power and emotion. He incorporates tight percussive rhythms, hypnotic atmospheres and colourful soundscapes that emit a raw energy to shake the forest and all creatures living in it. Watching dance floors erupt since an early age has given Arjuna the dominion to make people close their eyes, forget the world and dance till their knees wobble. The mystical vibe of Goa flows through his creations, warmly touches the soul and leaves people with their hands up, asking for more.
