This March, we return to the secondary home of Love & Light – the bewitchingly beautiful Nelsons Creek Wine Estate in Paarl.
We have curated three of the top international Progressive Psy-Trance acts – Emok, Ace Ventura and Animato. They will be supported by a stellar South African lineup to ensure an unforgettable experience and a personal journey, facilitated through music that moves not only your feet.
This installment of Love & Light promises to meet and exceed your highest expectations.
Doors open at 11am on Saturday. This gives you 12 hours of mind-blowing electronic music at one of the most breathtaking 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. His new album “Paradise Engineering”, recently released through Iboga Records, received high acclaim 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)
Emok is one of the founders of the powerhouse record label, Iboga Records. The label has existed since 1997 and has recently expanded with two sub labels – Prestige Music and Sofa Beats. During his time with the label Emok has been part of organizing various events and festivals in Denmark such as Camp Electric back in 2001. Besides the work on the labels Emok have been producing music in the Iboga studio in Copenhagen under various names.
DJ Emok’s access to fresh and unreleased tracks from supporting producers in the music community means it comes as no surprise that he is guaranteed to play unique, distinctive and exclusive sets ripping up dancefloors across the globe. With DJ sets and Live performances in more than 20 countries every year, he is firmly putting a statement on his worldwide popularity.
Animato is the new 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.
Full lineup will be released closer to the event date.
