“Suduaya” is a project created in 2006, after a trip in Sri Lanka. That name is a combination of two words that means “white brother” in sinhalese, that was my name given by my friends there. I was making electronic music already for few years and I was searching for a name to start a concrete project, and it came by itself during that trip. I actually started producing psytrance in 2003 with my good friend Jak, known as “LeDruide” (Fantazy Records) and the help of those who brought goatrance to us, Dj Zaag (MMD Records) and Khayyam from the project “Shehoor” (Replicant Records). We’v headed to our first big event in 2004 for the Boom Festival, wich was an amazing discovery, beyond words…I’ve been playing different instruments from my childhood and still having a guitar with me, specially for my chillout sets.
After years of work, my first progressive psytrance release was made by Iono Music on Klopfgeister’s compilation “Stand up against gravity”in 2011. My album Dreaming Sun”(Altar Records) came out on september of that same year. I started touring at the same time, a really nice summer 2011 with many doors of festivals that opened to me, giving me good energy and confidence to keep on working and working. 2012 is a successful year of bookings worldwide, many releases (Ovnimoon records, Synergetic Records), and a new side-project called “Aiodaya” was born (psyprog duo with Aioaska. We made our first EP with BMSS Records.
2013 started with the great Experience Festival (Thailand), followed by gigs in Cambodia and Malaysia. Back in March for Transition Festival (Spain), I am working on a new chillout album for next september (Altar Records) and new psyprog tracks for compilations. I am very much looking forward to this summer, many gigs coming (Forest Star Festival, Life Celebration Festival, S.U.N festival, Summer Never Ends, and many others all over Europe). ”

Sita Records dives into spring season with the long awaited debut album of one of their most prosperous and uprising inhouse artists, JBC Arkadii. Hailing from the faraway realms of Ussuriysk, Russia, situated on the crossroad between eastern and western influences, Arkadii Tronets gathered his inspiration to craft a unique style of Nitzhogoa, with a finely tuned ear for production quality.
This ultimately resulted in ‘Sounds From Tomorrow’, an anthology of his most melodic and memorable tracks he patiently wrote during the past years. So tune in, buckle up and prepare yourself for a flight into deep space, towards a new home of ever expanding universes and never fading stars.

The young Russian producer, Daniel Lesden (Daniil Sokolovskiy) started his career just a few years ago but he has already attracted much attention. He combines trance atmosphere and melodies with progressive pulses and beats, creating an entirely new sound for his music.
“In fact, I’ve started to listen to electronic dance music at the age of 10 (acid music of 90s and Goa trance), and my first music production experience was when I was about 12. But only in 2011 did I decide to become a professional artist.”
Daniel made his first public appearance in 2011 with his own online radio show, named Rave Podcast. Today Rave Podcast features the best selection of Progressive and Trance music, with guest mixes by artists from around the world, and such popular performers as Astral Projection, Artifact303, Lyctum, Magnus, Sonic Species, Ovnimoon, Anton Chernikov, Ephedrix, and more.
“My favorite artist is John 00 Fleming. Not just as DJ and artist, but also as a person who moved forward the whole trance scene throughout his 20-year career. I respect him very much. Several years ago his “Global Trance Grooves” radio show inspired me to start my own show – that’s how “Rave Podcast” was created.”(http://ravepodcast.com)
In February 2012 Daniel signed a contract with Psy Spy Records, resulting in his release being featured in the latest “PsyTrance Open Air” compilation. Following the first contract, the second agreement was signed the next month — this time with Ovnimoon Records, making the musicians’ debut release, “Contact” (EP) commercially available in August 2012. This release made it to the “Top 100 releases of the month” at PsyShop, steadily climbing up the chart for a month, and finally reaching the 7-th place.
“I graduated as a DJ/music producer in a Moscow-based AUDIO School (certified training center of Ableton, and one of the best educational courses in Europe). I got very good technical experience and skills in that place, so I am very thankful to all my teachers. This is how I’ve started.”
Since then Daniil moved his studio to Israel, continuing his uprising art. Even though nowadays the majority of electronic music producers are imitating each other – of courseit’s hard to come up with something new –, he still can keep his music original and unique.
“Talking about new talents, I really like the music of Serbian guys – Lyctum, Relativ, Copycat, Zyce, E-Clip and more – they are just phenomenal. I also like Israeli producers, such as Vertical Mode, Symbolic, Ritmo, Astrix, Ace Ventura, or Lish. Well, I guess I have about a 100 more favourite artists. As a DJ and radio host, I always keep an eye on the scene, new artists, new tracks.”
His new EP, named “Mars One” will include two tracks: “Mars One” (Original Mix) and “The New Land” (Original Mix). It will be out by Synergetic Records, the sub-label of Plusquam Records LabelGroup.
„At this moment I have two successfully released EP’s, and my 3rd EP will be released very soon.”
…and after this Daniil, and you, dear readers will find a juicy introduction to the “Mars One” EP.
