Barak A.K.A Fernando Diaz Gallardo, starts as a musician in 1999 at age of 15, with influences from trance scene of that year. His project was created with only one purpose: Transmit emotions and energy through Trance Music.
In 2001 he meets Raul Islas (Smuhg / Divinorum), and started to work together in a dark full on project named Spiraled Fungus and became big friends up to this days. Some months later he met Juan Carlos Ramirez Coello Cepeda (Trailex), who started to work with Barak in some tracks, and played together in some small parties along Mexico City. Some years later, he met Rene Sanchez (Dj Shove), who became his best friend, and co-worker in their project "Teen Sluts". Together, started to play very soon all over Mexico, and got deeper into the Mexican Trance scene with their track "Super Marihuano Bros".
Barak continued playing in parties all over Mexico, including very important festivals and huge parties, like Earth Dance Mexico 2003, Green Dreams Festival, Talamasca @ Guadalajara, Mikology Festival Pt. 1, Nierika @ Puerto Vallarta, Astrix and Sub 6 @ Guadalajara and lots more! He has also played at Brazil, in cities like Brasilia and Goiania. Barak has becomed one of the most heard and booked Full On artists in Mexico, and his style is improving everyday with fresh ideas, nice, groovie, and agressive music, for day or night time!
Androcell is an electronic dub / psychill project that began in 2003, created by audio producer and digital artist, Tyler Smith, also known as Quasga. Tyler has experimented with electronic sound forms for 10 years, but has been involved in music throughout most of his life, stemming from a piano, vocal, and percussion background. He designs his music as an aural habitat for cognizant chillers who seek to experience downtempo excursions through sound. http://www.androcell.com
Cybervixen, Joie Favier's music communicates into the heart, riding the rhythm on the electronic dance wave....

WATERJUICE: If you compress water, what essence are you left with? - asks Raven Tupling. The answer is the San Francisco- based duo Waterjuice who have opened a Pandora's Box with their Magical sounds.
Waterjuice is on a mission to bring highly experimental audio nectar to electronic music. Fusing downtempo tracks with the trance-endental school of thought. Hydrophonics will simultaneously groove and squeeze you.
Their music is as lush as its tide suggest, fraught with deep atmospheric Vog blended with solid electronic beats, ethnic polyrhythmus and a touch of didgeridoo. http://www.vaporvent.com/
OUTERSECT: (Rob Rayle) fuses electronic and ethnic music that pays little attention to borders or authenticity, a blend of geographically disparate elements that nevertheless work together as a unified whole. The collection "Caldera" focuses strongly on Middle Eastern hand drum styles while blending vocal techniques from other parts of the world with random electronic sounds. http://www.outersect.net/
