In one of our next editions will make a path about that July in Turkey and AYATA FESTIVAL is hitting on 17 - 21 July. Join us for a magnificent celebration in the heights of the Sandras Mountain in the Central Anatolian region of Mugla for the Ayata Festival! Dedicated to the theme of Anatolian Shamanism, the festival takes place from 17 until 21 July 2014. The festival unites local music, art, performance and culture with the pulse of the psychedelic music scene. And as we welcome a global roster of producers, DJs and visual artists - we celebrate our shamanic roots, which have grown and evolved from Middle Asia to Anatolia. So as Turkish mythology meets an electronic underground of visionary music, we pay our respects to the spirit of the ancient civilizations of Central Anatolia... Explored by archeologists, historians and anthropologists, it is a place where shamanism and Tangrism is a practice that is continued even today. The festival unites local music, art, performance and culture with the pulse of the psychedelic music scene. And as we welcome a global roster of producers, DJs and visual artists - we celebrate our shamanic roots, which have grown and evolved from Middle Asia to Anatolia. We will meet at the highest peak of southern Turke, in the region of Muğla - where ancient civilizations walked with the spirit of the Moon God and the Sun Goddess. At 2,294 metres above sea level, we will celebrate in the heights of the Sandras Mountain, in the heart of the village of Agla – named after the fresh spring water that flows through its contours. With its fairytale trees, wild flowers and emerald waters of the Gokceova Lake – this is a sacred paradise revealing the mysical side of Mother Nature.

The Great news on the releases world is the comeback of BOOM! Records! Expect the unexpected! BooM! Records is the longest independently running psy-trance label in the Netherlands, homebased in Groningen and was founded in 1996 by Dj Matt BooM! and Remko. Committed to the original spirit and vibe of psychedelic trance, their releases have featured both well established artists from the trance scene as well as many talented newcomers who they have discovered during their travels around the world. Many of these newcomers have become well respected artists. Tracks for release are selected on their dancefloor merits. The label sound is varied, but tends towards hard but melodic and uplifting tracks that make the dancefloor rock and the party people smile. An element of humour is another unmissable factor in many releases, partying is supposed to be fun after all... Some of the many artists that have been featured on BooM! Records so far include: Principles of Flight, Fractal Glider, Rastaliens, Solar Spectrum, Braincell, Logic Bomb, Battle of the Future Buddhas, Chi Ad, Cosmoon, Quadra, Mindwarped, Synchro, and Ubar Tmar.
