CHRISTER (Shiva Space Technology/Mechanik, Norway/Mexico) 
Christer started his career in 1996 working as a light technician at major clubs and underground parties in Norway. His first true epiphany came in the shape and form of the album "Return to the Source – The Chakra Journey", which drove his interest for music even further down the electronic spiral highway. Before relocating to Mexico in 2006, Christer helped throw the successful psyparties "Limboland" in Norway. He is a label DJ for Shiva Space Technology and Mechanik Records and released the compilation "Mental Displacement" on Shiva Space Technology in March 2006. Christer has earned himself the reputation of being a versatile DJ, his sets provide the audience with a wide and exciting array of psychedelic trance with one main intention: to make people dance.

Special Guest:
ARAHAT (PsyCircle Records, San Diego) Live/DJ Set
Co-founder of PsyCircle Records and owner of PsyCircle Studios, Tom has been scrambling brains for 12 years with masterful mixes of twisted, groovy, powerful night-time psy-trance under the moniker dj Hidro-ponik. He recently began channeling his own frequencies as Arahat and in collaborations like Arabali (with Mubali), Monks of Madness (with Bodhisattva 13:20), Brains (with Bodhi and Mubali) and coming soon with Limbertimbre, and Glyph. His live/dj emanations will send you on a trip through unreal dimensions of aural psychedelia. Get ready for a wild mesh of psycho-fried night-time desert dreams.

If you missed Saturday...

The POS machine wasn't working so perfectly again.

Got a visit from Rob. What a nice surprise. Drunk and belligerent as usual. 
Best of luck to you anyway, Rob (in your 8M$ operation). And you're always welcome to chat but next time let's make it sober. And the answer to your question: the guys got drunk and 86'd themselves, for fear of dealing with you.
