Circuit Breakers at Origin Festival

Circuit Breakers is the cohesion of two massive trance producers, Dickster and Burn In Noise, who have been sending dance floors into a frenzy with their energy-filled deep psychedelic sets around the world. Their recently released début album, ‘Fragmented Reality’ is full of driving bass lines, acid drenched soaring leads and cheeky samples like only these naughty knights can do!

Chris Palmer Earthdance Zenon set

https://www.facebook.com/DeeJayChrisPalmer/

People were quite chilled on Monday afternoon at Earthdance, after a long weekend of hard dancing. The music was excellent. I played some good Zenonesque style Dark Prog, enough to get people on their feet dancing but not to heavy to tire them out again.

Was loads of fun. The Zenon style of music is growing from strength to strength around the world, now being featured at most Psy festivals around the world. I see Sensient, head of the label, will be at Organik in Cape Town in October. There are a few tracks and remixes from him in this mix, I hope you really enjoy it to the max.

Earthdance is the biggest charity dance event in the world. Hundreds of parties around the world raise money for people in need and DJ’s donate their time and resources to giving back to those that are less fortunate. Thank you to all of the people that attended, your support provides help for many.

On Monday I was honored to play a Cercle live concert during sunset at the Costa Brava in Tossa de Mar, Spain. Thank you Cercle and thanks to everybody who came out there to dance with me at the sea. What a beautiful finale after more than 100 concerts during our Disconnected Album Tour in the last 10 months. I am really thankful and satisfied, but also I can’t wait to start working on the next album…

Chris Palmer Harvest Moon Psy Set

https://www.facebook.com/DeeJayChrisPalmer

Harvest Moon Festival was an opportunity to raise funds for an animal sanctuary, including wolves, horses, donkeys, birds, monkeys, goats pigs, dogs and zebra. Some beautiful new wolf cubs had just been born

Beautiful wolf cubs, 3 weeks old.

We also got a chance to meet the adult wolves and feed them in their enclosure. A male and a female Canadian wolf that had been rescued from a place where they weren’t being looked after well.

The sanctuary houses a lot of rescued animals that were being abused and not well treated. We had a festival to raise some money for their keep and got a chance to interact with them and see how well they are doing.

Male eating salmon, one of the natural foods that wolves hunt.

The wolf puppies had to be taken away from their mother as she had shunned them from the den and they needed to be raised by hand.

The female, the friendlier of the two, checking and smelling everybody

Many wars had been fought in the area many years ago. There are ruins of fortifications around the 2000 hectare farm. An old ox wagon stands next to the river.

A large pool and entertainment area made for a great space to play music and we’ll be back there again soon. Smilin Thru resort, thanks to Morne and Lee-Ann for their hospitality.
