Chris is well versed in the psy-trance scene, having been involved in music since the 90’s. He started his own music Mastering company, by the name of Layered Mastering, and has been involved with many prolific acts with which he provided services to. Some song’s he mastered included the likes of Mandoza’s – Nkalakatha – a huge anthem in the 2000s.
Moving back to his psy-trance Career, he has played at many, many, many Teknotribe & Mansion parties over the years and has pretty much every psy-trance based outdoor in Gauteng from Twilight to Moksha under his belt. He also started thePsyclical brand with Stefan d.B., which saw it grow from a string of weekly indoors in 2018, to an annual outdoor festival in 2020.
His music is incredibly versatile, and he plays a broad range of BPMs in various styles based on what the party requires from Techno to Zenonesque/Psygressive to Full-On and even Forest. He also is a music producer who often plays a lot of his music live in his sets.
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.
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.
HypoGeo is “Anything that originates, grows and evolves beneath the earth”.
The description perfectly fits the music: deep, obscure, hypnotic, mental, filthy and psychedelic.
It takes shades through the producer’s musical background: orchestrated by extreme metal, industrial & EBM, New Wave, Noise, techno, IDM & dark ambient.
May 2012 marked the inception of HypoGeo’s introduction to the wider world of music. The first full-length album “Tree of Lies” was released on Zenon records – the infamous Australian psychedelic label. The album was a huge success for the particularly aggressive and heavy sound, building the bridge between the deepest of psychedelic trance textures, some call it “forest” and the ultimate “Zenonesque” sound. No matter what the title, the awe of experiencing a live Hypo-performance is second to none, anywhere around the globe.
Currently, HypoGeo is working on the long awaited 2nd studio album; an epitome of creativity, abstract sonic landscapes, and undeniably intricate composition.
Fabio was the first brazilian invited to join the artist cast of australian label Zenon Records. He had been supporting and promoting the Zenon style of progressive for some time already, so the invitation helped him further advance the label in his country.
His dj set is composed of fresh unreleased material as well as released gems from the present and past, played with an impeccable mixing technique over an interesting equipment setup. Fabio believes that combining the creative potential of digital technologies with the richness of analog circuits allows him to go deeper into his own interpretation of Zenon Records, blending elements from other styles of music, such as the hypnotic drum patterns of techno.
This peculiar way of playing led him to be recognized all over Brazil and get bookings for many relevant open air parties and festivals. He has also been touring internationally, having been invited to play at some of the most respected gatherings such as Boom Festival (PT), Freqs of Nature (GER), Lost Theory (ES), Tree of Life (TK), Rainbow Serpent Festival (AU), Earth Frequency (AU), Universo Paralello (BR), S.U.N. Festival (HU) and more.
Fabio also released a compilation on Zenon Records called “A Push Forward” featuring tracks from Ryanosaurus, Hefty, Florian MSK & Kliment, Electrypnose, Sensient, Hellquist, Hypogeo, Quantic Devices and Kromagon, some of his favorites artists in the label.
