In March, we get to return to our second home, the picturesque Nelson’s Creek Wine Estate in Paarl. This time around the Love & Light team are bringing another stellar and world-class lineup featuring some of the best international and local progressive psytrance producers and DJ’s including the master himself; Ace Ventura, Rocky, Easy Riders and Animato!
The celebrations will kick off at 12pm, but come early and take a swim in the pool next to the dancefloor, grab a drink or a bite to eat from our fully licensed bars and gourmet food stalls. If shopping is your thing we’ve got you covered with our fully stocked hippie market where you can find the latest trends in Bohemian fashion and accessories.
The party will end at 23:45, giving you a solid 12 hours of the best electronic music and iconic, breathtaking and beautiful views at one of the most sought after venues in The Cape.
Ace Ventura is one of the leading and busiest DJs & artists on the progressive and psytrance scene. His music has been topping the charts and he has been touring constantly all over the globe playing in every possible venue and headlining all major festivals. He is well known for his highly popular mixes and long massive DJ sets. Ace Ventura’s new album “Paradise Engineering” was just released in Iboga Records receiving wall to wall praise and support, cementing his status as a key figure in the scene. He is also involved in three other highly successful projects: Zentura (with Zen Mechanics), Liquid Ace (with Liquid Soul) & Easy Riders (with Rocky)
Roy Tilbor AKA Rocky has been for many years one of the leading and finest artists of the progressive psy trance genre.
Rocky’s music can be best described as unique production which is full of power ,energy and spiced with organic infusions, phat grooves and unique atmosphere.
Rocky has produced 3 full length studio albums, “’A Thread of Light”, “Keyboard Wipeout” in Echoes Records and his latest album “Conflict Of Rhythm” which was released in Iboga records and got him to the top of the trace charts all over the globe.
Beside his studio albums rocky also collaborated with, remixed for, and been remixed by top producers from all over the international electronic music scene , ranging from artists such as Andrea Bertolini, Piatto, Ace Ventura,Phony Orphants , Liquid Soul , Son kite , Intelabeam, Nok,Motion drive, Brisker & Magitman, Symphonix,Symbolic,Ritmo,L
Animato is the psy progressive project by Patrick Chen (aka PTX). In a short time he managed to build his own imprint with a solid base and quality sounds, designing modern psychedelic sound-tracks. His first release was the grand remix to one of Sub6’s monster hits ‘Droid save the Queen”, followed by another remix to “Micro Man” by Indie dance act “Tokujoros”. His first solo track was “Simple Idea”, released on Iboga Records and he just finished his debut ep – “Ensemble” for his main label – HOMmega. The ep includes a collaboration with prog legend Atmos and a remix for Easy Riders (Ace Ventura & Rocky) featuring the wonderful touch of dub master Haim Laroz.
After a while pursuing their solo careers, the two israeli trance-maestros Yoni Oshrat (also known as Ace Ventura) and Roy Tilbor (also known as Rocky) have joined together to form the new project Easy Riders.
Yoni was earlier a part of the successful projects Children Of The Doc and PsySex, releasing no less than 3 critically acclaimed psychedelic trance albums on HOMmega Productions. With the launch of his progressive solo project Ace Ventura, his career took a dramatic turn though, resulting in bookings weekly at the biggest parties and festivals around the world, as well as appearing on labels like Iboga Records, HOMmega, Flow, Iono , Echoes & Blue Tunes – all crowned with his now classic debut solo-album “Rebirth”, released on Iboga Records in 2007 – which later was followed by the well received remix album “Re:boot”. These days he is working on his second artist album, “Paradise engineering”.
Roy has been a part of the global electronic scene for the better part of 15 years, and as a label-DJ for Chemical Crew he was touring the world, rocking crowds with intense, full on trance music. Like Yoni, Roy also got caught up with the slower, groovier progressive music though, and in 2007 he released his debut album “A Thread Of Light”. Overnight this release, followed by appearances on labels like Iboga Records, Blue Tunes, Plusquam and Phonokol, made him one of the most sought-after DJ and liveacts on the progressive scene, and his second album (“Keyboard wipeout” on Echoes records) cemented his name as a master of phat grooves and atmosphere.
