In this special Goa Freaks Interview, we present two interviews with the legendary people that played the key role in rising and establishment of Hippie Culture in Goa and literally founded Anjuna and Vagator as a future generation party destination.
Mr. RAY CASTLE.
This week we had and we used a great opportunity to interview the man, whom we can absolutely call one of the father of Goa Trance scene. DJ, MUSICIAN, COMPOSER, PRODUCER, PERFORMER, JOURNALIST - Mr. RAY CASTLE.
Ray has had a passionate relationship with music since the late 60s. In the early 70s he played harmonica in blues rock bands, and promoted and organised gigs for new wave/punk bands in the late 70s. He started DJing in the late 70s which was the era of Funk, Ska and Industrial Rock.
Later, in ’87, he became one of the influential, original DJs and party maker of the Goa party scene in India. This was followed by numerous recorded releases and collaborations. He introduced the outdoor dance party concept to Japan in the late 80s and early 90s with the festival organisation Equinox.
He was one of the seminal instigators of the Australian trance party scene in the early 90s, 'Trance-Elements', 'Happy Valley', 'Psyharmonics' early 'Earthcore' & Byron Bay 'Beyond The Brain' events.
