DJ ANYA (Sonic Beating) BOS/RUS
Anya is a Russian-born psytrance, techno, & house dj living in the US. She first got into electronic music in 1995 when breakbeat eletronic groups like Crystal Method and Chemical Brothers were getting really big around the world. In the next few years, she explored IDM like Aphex Twin and Autechre. The rave scene in the US blew up around 1999, and she started going to these allnight dance events. This was an exciting time because so many different genres of electronic music were being showcased in the same venue in one night!
Fast-forward to 2007... when Anya joined up with the Sonic Beating psytrance promotion and party organization crew in Boston USA.Having been a psytrance/goa fan for a long time, she was excited to help this awesome crew of people! She first began to assist with set ups and soon became the bookings organizer for the crew. Anya also learned to DJ progressive and psytrance around this time with motivation from a few inspiring friends :)
In just a few short years, Anya had built a name for herself in the US, but has yet to be defined by one genre. Playing everything from 155 bpm dark aggressive psytrance to 120 bpm dreamy slow progressive house, she's got sets to please all types of tastes :) Even in the fastest tracks, she seeks a groovy bass line that keeps asses shakin' and feet stompin. She is best known for offering up 2 sets in the same festival: her serious psy sets mixed with forest, night and dark music... and really deep romantic SEXY tech/prog house! Her mixing is always on point, with powerful bass line switches, and she has a huge stage presence that gets people excited.
Having played all over the US in clubs, festivals and parties, she's traveled to both coasts to rock groovy sets for happy dancers. Anya has also been a featured guest on the 10-year running WZBC radio station (www.wzbc.org) show “Green” with Jeff Mission & used to hold a bimonthly slot on the Greek psy internet radio station MelexRadio. Internationally, she's played in Italy, Switzerland, Canada & Morocco including the amazing TimeGate NYE party, Eclipse Festival & Transahara Festival

ELECTRONICAnonymous (Shireworx) MA
ELECTRONICAnonymous is the EDM brain-child of Jules Jenssen. 1/3 of underground dance-fusion power trio HiGHER ORGANiX, Jules has been playing music since he was 6 years old, first dabbling in piano, then embracing the drums as his musical voice. Heavily rooted in traditional band style rock/ funk music, (Floyd, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Phish, all his father's bands, etc..) Jules found electronic music as a pre-teen and immediately was drawn to carefully sculpted, evolving beats, throbbing bass, and euphoric synthetic sound design. Although he didn't start making electronic music for years, he continued to integrate the theory into his drumming and live band. In the summer of 2008, Jules dove head first into the world of EDM production and nocturnal sleep cycles, making everything from electro-house, to dubstep, to krunk - -& styles yet-unnamed. Having already headlined shows including Music Ecology @ Wonderbar Boston, played festivals such as Camp Bisco, Desiderata, and the Big Up as well as having shared the stage with OTT, Lotus, Sub Swara, Bluetech, King Britt, Dub War NYC and Psylab, to name a few, the anonymous might not be unknown for long...
