Wow, a new face with some big talent that I discovered on Youtube. She plays great music, Psytech. Lovely energy and vibe.


Born and based in Sao Paulo, Fernanda is passionate for exploring senses that music brings to people. Her musical identity has aroused curiosity from people all over the world. Using sounds that fluctuates from Progressive House to Techno, she does not like to label her style with names, Fernanda believes everything is in constant change.


During her period living in Australia, she has acquired a heavy experience as resident dj at Dragonfruit and got a next level performances playing at big clubs and festivals there.


Now in Brazil she represents one of the most influential artists in the local scene in São Paulo, her performances were in big clubs like D-Edge and Club 88, also festivals like Adhana and Soulvision. Pistelli had played along Boris Brejcha and Ann Clue in their label showcase, F*cking Serious. She is one of the biggest feminine talent raising in Brazil at the moment.


“Music is the universal language of love. I hope to play with people’s emotions, not only play for them”.

A dark Forest set, played at Psyclical Atlantis at 4am, Sunday morning. Driving and full of energy, Filtiarn is a big fan of Parvati Records. I played one-on-one with Filtiarn at the Darker Dimensions floor at Connexion New Years Festival and we had a great one!

My favourite Battlefloor set ever! Dark Prog, deep and moody, with great energy and flow. Excellent intro tune and great mixing. Well done Vinny! All of the DJ’s we booked at Psyclical Atlantis brought their A-game and the music was outstanding :). Thanks to everyone that joined us.

Our one-on-one Psy set on the Darker Dimensions floor at Connexion New Year Festival, Hella Hella Adventure Centre, Kwazulu Natal. It was our first time playing one-on-one Psy and it went fantastically!

It was from 8 to 9.30pm, so the beginning of the night. The floor was packed and it was pumping, being the first night of the festival. Despite the rain during the festival, it was magical. In fact, the rain kept us cool, the one hot day we melted! Hope you enjoy the music.

This was one of my best sets and I’m so glad I played it at Vortex. Vortex is a favourite on my calendar. After moving to a new venue this year, with tons of drama from people trying to stop the party, the Vortex crew has surpassed themselves! The new venue is even better than the old, in a beautiful Blue Gum Tree forest.

So much fun was had by all. I managed to lose my wallet on Saturday, always a stupid thing to do. Someone handed it in and I managed to get it back on Sunday, with all my card and drivers license in! The community and friendly vines there are phenomenal, make a plan to get there next year.
