Saturday the 7th of August
Deep Space Entertainment & Stepinn -
Are putting on another crazy Space Themed party with 2 rooms of Psy-Trance / Psy-Breaks /&/ Dub-Step / Drum & Bass.
Packed with mental effects, coloured lazers and psychedelic visualz, this shin-dig is gonna go off...
The plan is to get this going in brisbane as a monthly event. This will give tonnes of local Psy / Breaks artists the chance to get out there and have a bit more of a bash (get regular paid gigs), it will create spots in the scene for new and up coming local artists, and it will give us more opportunity to book and host international and interstate acts on a regular basis.
The 1st 4 have been really fun and really successful - But we still need lots more support from the local peeps who would like 2 see regular Psy-Trance events held in the Valley...

YASSA ACID PHAT (Omega 3 Productions)
Yassa Acid Phat / Dee jay doh was first introduced to the psychedelic trance scene at the dawn of the millennium (Dawning Festival -January 2001) at our beloved “Gorge Station” near Bonalbo, NNSW and was probably one of the greatest experiences of his life. Trying to forget the worries of his taxing day job, the next half a decade or so of his downtime consisted of bandying about the bush with “all the freaky people” who incidentally do “make the beauty of the world” (Thanks Mr Frante) Growing evermore fascinated with this amazing culture, people and of course music, it wasn’t until a few years ago, after living with CY (and all his PSY), that he began to discover the art of mixing. Coupled with the sideways ramblings of fellow DJ’s cafe Rae and Forrest gimp, project Yassa Acid Phat was conceived. The latter half of 2005 saw young Yassa brave the great unknown as he disappeared above the equator. 5 months later he returned with a wealth of inspiration after experiencing what the huge European psychedelic trance scene has to offer. Now returned to his home in BrisVegas, he has settled into a new double life; mild mannered accountant by day, DJ and party organiser by night. Phat acid trance parties to date include Progressions of Freedom I and II, Regressions from Monarchy, Escapades from Exhibitions, The Invasion Day Doof and the collaborative effort; Trust no Goblin (Except This One:-). Memorable support gigs to date include Menog and U-reckon (TNG III Winter Solstice 2006), Vibrasphere (Genesis -October 2006), The Artifakt (Quantum Relic - November 2006), Phoney Orphants, John "00" Flemming and Raja Ram (Earthcore - December, 2006) and Crazy Ducks (The Invasion Day Doof – January 2006)
DJ DEPTH CHARGER (Chunk Junky Records)
Scott Neale, aka DJ Depth Charger (Chunk Junky Records/Disasterpeace Records) fell into the wonderful world of electronic music back in 2004. After attending his first out door dance party he quickly realised how appealing pretty lights and thumping music were and decided to make it somewhat of a life style. Out of all the genres of electronic music he found that psychedelic trance grabbed him by the giggle berries harder than any other, and after going over to a mates place and using the flanger effect on one of his favourite tunes and getting a kick out of how the sound changed he decided that being a disc jockey was for him. He started out mixing morning “cheese” and frowned upon all other styles of psytrance, but after getting his face torn off by two friends who play harder night time gear he quickly started slipping down the dark edge of the psychedelic knife. His style can now be described as knee twisting, gear shifting, chunk grinding, solid charging, and non-stop in your face full-on night time power psy.
The cassowary is a large flightless bird. There are three kinds of cassowary, two found in New Guinea and one, the southern cassowary, found in northern Queensland. Their habitat is tropical rainforest.
The cassowary has a horny helmet, called a casque, on its head. This helps it crash its way through the thick forest. The skin on the cassowary's head and neck is blue. Two long red 'wattles' hang down from the neck. The feathers on the body are black and look more like hair than feathers. The legs are thick and greyish, with three toes. The inner toe has a 12 centimetre claw-like spike, which is used in defence. Cassowaries can be dangerous when cornered.
Cassowaries eat fruit and seeds. The seeds pass through their bodies, and so the cassowary plays an important part in spreading seeds of rainforest plants. They also eat small mammals and birds they find dead.
