Alweez Psy Stage
Sangoma Records / TimeCode Records
His moniker defines the transformation of an organism from a simple to a complex structure. His story embodies the definition fittingly. Psychogenesis’ growth as a psychedelic trance artist has been charted out over many hardworking years.
After attending his first psychedelic trance festival in Turkey, his transformed mindset desired to bring the culture to his home country, Lebanon. This led to the creation of ‘Psyleb’, (The Lebanese Psychedelic Family) a community that has pioneered the Psytrance culture in the region. From ‘Psysessions’, It has grown to ‘Forest Frequencies’, an outdoor festival that has caught global eyeballs and has now been running successfully since 2008.
Rabih started out his musical career in India itself, the birthplace of Goa Trance. After studying Audio Engineering at SAE India, he started to build a name and a following at the local party scene in Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai and the Mekka of Psytrance, Goa. He then moved on to bigger gigs and international recognition. His most recent move was to Montreal, but his heart lies in Lebanon, where he is widely regarded as a pillar of the Psychedelic music scene.
Psychogenesis has hosted and performed in parties all over the world, alongside names like:” Ajja, Tristan, Talamasca, Highko, Yab Yum, Aphid Moon, Laughing Buddha, E-Clip, U-recken, Zen Mechanics, Arjuna, EVP, CPU, Neuromotor, Daksinamurti, Brainwash, Tryambaka, B-Psycho, Nomad 25, Twisted kala and many others…
” Rabih believes in the ‘moment’ and his playing style compliments the moment. He finds shelter in the darkness, and has made peace with the monsters of the night… High Energy Twilight & Night full on Psytrance, Deep Basslines, Intense Leads, Twisted Synths, Rich Buildups, & Crazy Drops.
a.k.a David Maynard Dion from St-Jérôme, Canada has always been in touch with music, as he grew up in a recording studio. He first started as a drummer in various funk/rock bands but discovered electronic music in 2009 at Éclipse Summer Electronic Music Festival. The basics of music production were starting to sink in but it opened a whole new world and perception of what music could be. His goal is to try to make music that is both accessible to everyone and psychedelic, which results in a blend of live instruments, funky grooves and most of the times joyful but he also explores the depths of the night sometimes, as they are that which forge the morning that comes next.
