The promising talent of DJ Psyphoria is the vision of Australian DJ/Producer and Promoter of our Psy-Trance movement, Don de Valle.
Having grown up aroud alternative music and lifestyle, and attending such events and festivals from such a young age he knew this would be his path before he even finished his schooling.
He was afforded the opportunity to have his first set of decks at age 20, When he purchased a set up that was highly recommended for what he wanted to do.
the package combination consisting of Denon DNS1000 and DNX Mixer package.
Don's goal from the start to develop a highly infectious and powerful approach to digital performance.
Over the coming years he would put all his energy into creating and polishing his mixing with no outside input. He wanted his creation to be totally unique and recognisable.
in a scene where everything is governed off standards he really didn't know what he was getting himself in for in the beginning.
DJ Psyphoria the act he create was designed around the concept of "Psychdelic Euphoria" which would be the best way to describe the audible hallucination that comes from powerful music. The magic essense that is what makes the Dancefloor such a holy place.
Through the years of partying in his youth he had many experiences of this powerful sensation from music and put his focus into harnessing that power and manipulatiing it in his own way in the form of layered live mixes.
After many years of a barrier he had in what he was trying to do Don decided to then go over to Digital Hybrid Djing, where he uses the Mixer with a controller and laptop.
Musically for many years DJ Psyphoria was centered around the more uplifting Fullon morning sound of psychedelic and typical sounds you would have expected to hear him mix would have been the productions of such acts as Astrix, X-Noize, 1200 micrograms, Skazi, Wrecked Machines, The Freak Show, Orpheus and Delirious amongst other great names in that field of fullon.
Then in 2010 a close friend introduced him to the Night Time side of Fullon, The more frenetic obscure noised darker brother of the more warm uplifting morning sounds.
Once he put his mixing idea's to mixing this style he was instantly hooked on it the almost unbelieveable ammout of power that could be made with manipulating these tracks and it became more suited to the way Don likes to mix.
Today you can expect to hear DJ Psyphoria playing such sounds as Alienn, X-Gen, Mageneto, D.N.I., A-Mush, Delieriant, ZInx, Sidhartha and other Truly brilliant sound designers in this field of Psychedelic Trance.
Don's mixing has been herd by fans all over the globe and been seen live at underground events in Australia and Europe, He also had the Privilage of hosting Australia's premier psychedelic radio program Bitz Of Buzzz, from dance music station Radio Metro in 2006-8.
In 2011 he was also the first Psychedelic DJ specialist to be awarded Pioneer DJ mix of the month.
Dj Psyphoria has worked with many labels and agencies in recent times including Psy-Kings Bookings (Israel), Climactic Records (UK) & Rudeboi Badgurl Connection (USA). Currently you can find him with Free Minds Records (PT), California Sun Productions (BE) and P.L.U.R. (NL).
Now as well as working hard to revolutionise his mixing Don is putting a lot of energy into the creation of his own Live act Max Damage.
To make the people more activated and the energy more powerful on the audienceas of 2012 the live stage essence of Dj Psyphoria also includes a live lighting engineer.
