Throughout the years, a selective group of few artists have managed to elevate their names as absolute trance legends, known and heard by almost everyone. From this group, some are so special and rare that only the nerdiest trance heads and real insiders know them, and even only a few ever got the chance to hear them play live. They are basically living myths, a reference to our scene of psychedelic delight...
These two men we're surely fall into this category; you have to know the trance history to understand their importance, and understanding their importance is basically knowing trance history in itself.
Having Ray Castle on our stage once again is nothing but a true honor. An unprecedented artist who experienced and contributed to the evolution of our scene since day one, hanging among the freaks and free spirits at the shores of the white sandy beaches in Goa back in the 80's and 90's.
A true traveler, this Kiwi artist grew all of his experiences and beliefs while living in Japan and Australia. There he created several projects such as Masaray, together with DJ MASA, and Rhythmystec with Nick Taylor from Prana and Taiyo. Many of you must certainly remember the epic and unique Masaray VS DJ performance at the last ZNA edition.
This time, Castle chose to share the stage with his Rhythmystec mate Nick Taylor also known as Snake Thing, promising us a pure trip into their own psychedelic reality. After this moment, you will be among the few lucky ones that can can claim they've had the privilege to witness their art.
All that we at the ZNA headquarters wish is to empower trance culture in the present to assure its future. We, the trance people - and most certainly our Zambu family - are a very special tribe, with its heroes and shamans, its legends and its rituals; as such, our aim with every edition is to create line-ups that promote and highlight the historical side of our scene, to spread our ZNA gene and keep the roots of our culture alive.
We invite everyone to join us in this historical moment, not only of ZNA Gathering but also of our trance scene as well.
