Deliriant is Shane Renew, from Cape Town, South Africa. With a lifelong passion for music, over a decade of DJ and production experience, 3 full albums, a multitude of single releases on a host of local and international labels, and a career as a studio engineer – he is a well-established artist in an ever-changing industry.
Signed to Solar Tech Records, Deliriant has performed at top parties all over South Africa, as well as a number of international festivals in Australia, Europe, Mexico and more, while his music has contributed to a wide range of number 1 releases on labels worldwide. His sets deliver an energy packed ride, riddled with dark atmospheres, intense breakdowns, clever drops, driving basslines, psychedelic leads and an always solid groove.
With his top-notch production and intelligent arrangement, his music is powerful and driving, yet still provides the listener with a taste of clarity, streamlined minimalism, and a melodic feel. This is music from the future – watch this space.
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.
This is a blistering, fast-paced and high energy set from one of my faves, DJ Bernz. He’s always right on the pulse, delivering great tunes, and the wryest sense of humour. Check out this bio 🙂
“They have requested a biography from me that is supposed to give you an idea of what kind of DJ I am and perhaps even give you an idea of what kind of person I am. It is supposed to have information about when I started DJing, what type of music I enjoy and maybe even artists who inspire my original production. This would be the part where I would list the parties I’ve played at and also any famous DJs that you might have heard of that I’ve shared the stage with. To round it all off I’d put a catchy little slogan at the end with the intent that you would remember this particular biography, my biography.”
“Blacklite Records proudly presents the debut album from the dynamic Mexican/Swiss Duo Stereoxide! Aptly titled: ‘Tryptamine Tales’, each track is an audio journey through the various states of the altered mind. These Tales of cosmic exploration have taken more than a year to create, a journey that started on the beaches of ‘Koh Tao’, collaborating with inter stellar artists along the way, such as Animalien, Art Materials, Endeavour, Mental Broadcast and Mirok.. Destination ‘Singular ET’ is on the ‘event horizon’ and this is the perfect soundtrack to accompany you for ‘teleportation’.. \\Fasten Your Seatbelts!”

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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
