Complicit | Minneapolis | Communique
Techno (*Live PA)
Complicit is an exploration of modern techno and an experiment in musical partnership for contributing members Tanya and Travis Norman. Longtime enthusiastic supporters of Minneapolis talent, the duo was looking for a way to translate that inspiration into a statement of their own. They found it by crafting a production and performance workflow running identical controllers manipulating a single system. The resulting symmetry and real time dynamics, a balancing act of duties divided by frequency range, are allowed to combine in unpredictable ways and evolve along a non-linear timeline, thereby insuring a unique mix at each event.
Early forays into performance have witnessed the duo making good their commitment to manifest a favorite Minneapolis slogan: “Keep Techno Sexy.” Whether contributing to the renowned Black nights at First Avenue or to intimate after hours events, the vibe has been sweaty, sultry, and designed for dancing. Fans who witness the extra level of communication evident in non-verbal cues dictating build up and release of the material realize quickly the strength of connection between the two musicians. Meanwhile, the improvisational aspects of the pair’s presentation translate to a potent in-the-moment awareness – one that spreads easily from performer to listener, enveloping each in a unified soundscape.

Tryst | Woodbury, MN
You can start here by saying the cheesiest things about “Trysts” love for music, or his massive interest in the EDM scene, but that is all cliche. Tryst doesn’t do cliche’s. This cross genre DJ has the drive to break all conventions about the typical DJ , EDM or otherwise.
His love for music started with the discovery of the magic of Micheal Jackson at age 5 , spending hours on end imitating his dance moves, but subconsciously infusing the music into his mind. He really got into the EDM scene by borrowing “Best of Club Hits” mixed by DJ Geoff from a friend in 2008 and from there, musical discovery awaited. Traveling to scotland for a semester, he immersed himself in the scene at nightclubs, record stores and frequented the car boot sale to acquire loads of Trance and Techno tracks.
Started DJing in early 2009 , and is still discovering the fantastic culture that is EDM.
so much more to learn… so so so much..

And it was at Tiesto in Minneapolis on Halloween in 2009 that I fell in love with EDM. Just over one year later and many other shows I became interested in how it all worked so I got some equipment and started mixing. After many house parties and events in Duluth and just a year behind the decks I found myself opening for Avicii in Minneapolis on January 6th 2012. After this night I was inspired.

7am-8am – Jagno Gaia – (Cosmic Egg/Suntrip Records) – Morning Goa – Shoreview, MN
Jagno Gaia is a 5th-Dimensional entity transmitting from the Pleiades star-cluster in the constellation Taurus.
The receiving form and conductor of this energy is Jeremy Green, one half of the Newschool Goa Trance project: Aerosis.
This versatile sound-shaman bridges the gap between Goa & Psytrance (Body & Mind) by channeling higher vibrational
frequencies of the Spirit, from his home planet down into the Gaian Noosphere.
This mystical, multi-dimensional experience provides for a unique calibration of the Chakras intended to align the
lower frequencies with the higher so that all energy is conducive, transparent, and travels with a relative flow and ease.
By activating the Root Chakra, whilst sustaining the Heart & opening the 3rd Eye and Crown Chakras, Jagno Gaia guides you into a prime environment for Integrative Out-of-Body Experiences.
