Pantomiman is George Agaronov (or Gosha for short), a Russian psytrance producer with some extra flavour on top – he is a professional comic actor who comes from a family of circus comedy performers! Early in his childhood years Gosha began playing musical instruments, performing on stage and later composing his parts for a circus band. When Gosha was a teenager he discovered electronic music and a bit later towards the late nineties Gosha discovered something that felt very natural to him – psychedelic trance. Since then Gosha has been developing and working on his own sound, partly with an expert guidance from Alex Parasense. The past few years Pantomiman has spent DJ’ing and playing live around Russia entertaining crowds with his very special and very funny musical shows. Needless to say Pantomiman’s music is a psychedelic circus act in itself. Sometimes more aggressive and twisted, sometimes more nostalgic and funky music by Pantomiman never fails to surprise and excite. Pantomiman’s groovy bass lines and comical themes make people dance and laugh at the same time, while of course his skilful sound synthesis guarantees that a trip will be adventurous, joyful and amusing.
Pantomiman’s tracks have been taken for releases by such quality labels as Bom shanka music, Doof Records, Sundance, Up Records, Space Baby rec, Macky Mad House Records and Blitz Studios. At present he is working with the Looney moon records!
My Sunday Funday sunrise set at Psyclical Atlantis. What a great party! People danced non-stop through the night and through Sunday. It was wonderful.
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.

Plusminus DJ set 05h30 – 08h00 Sunday morning at Organik – Gaian Dream. Mike has become a friend of mine. His funny memes and great sense of humour have been a constant entertainment in my life for the last couple of years.
From mistakenly stumbling into the wrong room at parties while intoxicated (hee hee) to catching yellow fever on the way to Vietnam for Quest Festival (Nitty Gritty Guide to Quest), he always manages to have an adventure, and a story to tell.
His sets are well crafted, excellently mixed and full power. Flowing easily through great selections, it’s easy to feel why the crowds love him. He recently formed a duo with Deliriant called Michael/Cera. They, of course, cause mayhem together.
The stage design at Organik Gaian Dream was Crafted by Christopher Dowding, an old friend of mine. His set pieces are stunning, with great attention to detail.
