Starseed Taurus - Ecstatic Dance Party

For our third monthly event, we've got a super special night planned with not one, not two, but THREE extremely talented out of town DJs from Crestone, Albuquerque and Santa Fe as well as a live hand-drummer in addition to our Taos local staples, Planewalker and Julia Daye. Add to that the intelligent lighting system, amazing sound, projection mapping and last but certainly not least the delicious meals and elixir bar that everyone is raving about, and you've got yourself a night you'll never forget!

Moreover, Planewalker has a special offer on hand for pre-sale ticket buyers. If you buy a pre-sale ticket any time before midnight, the night before the show, you will receive a FREE copy of Planewalker's new 33-track DJ mix "Cónocht an Earrach" as well as a copy of his newest album, Planes of Consciousness.

In 2003 she went to her first Psytrance party and got infected. She has been an electronic music aficionado ever since She started djaying in 2012 playing Progressive Psytrance and Downtempo.

SATTVA ANANDA (Santa Fe, NM)
Sattva Ananda got his first musical instrument at the age of thirteen (a drum kit). From there he learned to play percussion instruments of various types, including the didgeridoo, congas, djembe, nyabinghi drums etc. In the early 90,s he played in funk and groove oriented bands. In 1996 he started the venture towards loop based music, eventually leading to his owning a small studio and the self production abyss of electronic based music. Today he focuses on what is broadly known as bass music. Sattva has been producing bass music for many years, with numerous releases on Party Time Society and Desert Trax. He is best known for his Moombahton sets that always bring a smile to those on the dancefloor. We're honored to have him up to Taos for a guest appearance.

INFINITE SPLIT
From experamental whimsical dream worlds, to melodic sexy trap habbits. Infinite Split stays on the forefront of strange, bringing a unique blend of psychosis and philosophy in a form of sound. Science still has yet to classify this paradox as a dissociative, so is legal dew to massive black outs and common brain damage. Burrowed in the New Mexican landscape, Infinite Split remains, a wanderlust of soundscapes

Balance in all things - this is the guiding principle of the esctastic dance party. Do you love to dance but maybe not so into the bar scene? What's a fun loving, yet responsible adult to do?

We believe we've got the answer - the ecstatic dance party! Since the idea behind ecstatic dance is more of a movement meditation and fun way to get exercise, and the idea of a party is to have as much fun as possible at any cost, why not strike a balance between these extremes? In other words, let's party and have as much fun as possible, but let's not cause ourselves or anyone else any trouble!

We're aiming for the most fun, highest vibe event possible. We've got one hard and fast rule - NO ALCOHOL. That's right, please leave your beer, wine, whisky or whatever you like to drink at home, come enjoy a tasty nourishing tonic & dance the night away.

ADEM JOEL

Because of Adem's mindful attention to research and detail of Tribal Dance Music, he set the tone for Nu-Skool and Tribal Breakbeat style music in New Mexico, back in the olden days of '99. Adem's DJ sets are so powerful and journey inspiring that he has been graced with the opportunity to share his musical gifts at multiple music festivals in the U.S. such as Arise Festival in Colorado, Firefly Gatherings, The Gem and Jam Festival in Arizona, and Symbiosis Gatherings in Northern California. Since early 2012, Adem and his crew have been hosting the well-known SOUNDS LIKE PRIMAL events in Santa Fe, NM at Meow Wolf and other venues.
