Dj Psyphoria/Max Damage is the vision of 28 year old Dj/Producer Don de Valle
I have been attending Psychedelic parties since I was around 8 years old. This experience has enabled me to see a lot of digital performers in my life. During this time I saw something that was overlooked by the D.J's that I saw, and then this inspired me to start doing serious DJing in 2005.
The main goal was to create a revolutionary way of mixing tracks (Live Mash-Up) that would enhance the power the producer has already made in the track and to dramatize the breaks and build ups a lot more.
Dj Psyphoria was soon started as the main project (All Psy-Trance) not just one sub genre.
Psyphoria an abbreviation of “Psychedelic Euphoria” the description I have named the buzz the listener that one gets from audio when they are high. This buzz makes us feel like we are either soaring through the heavens or it can hold us on earth depending on the way a mix is composed.
After some particular experiences with Psychedelic Euphoria I set out to make enhanced performances that would be more stimulating on an audience of any scale. A way of having more influence on their high, be it a natural high or one brought on by psychedelic substances.
I further discovered an understanding for the subconscious effects the concept of Psychedelic Euphoria has on the beings around it, with a developing understanding of how to heal people and the earth, and this is my goal.
I stimulate, and truly uplift people by using the formula devised over the previous years of self training to serve it’s purpose.
For some time Dj Psyphoria was also known as Max Damage, which was used to play progressive trance.
Now as of late 2011 Max Damage has become a production alias. Taking all the idea’s I have had to make powerful tracks for DJ Psyphoria sets.
The ultra long layering technique which I created, which is one of the secrets of where Psychedelic Euphoria’s raw power comes from, is fast gaining respect and following around the globe, As its a very powerful, moving and infectious digital audio performance.
Some of my recent achievements include multiple global MDS number one mixes, and consistently keeping my sets amongst the high ranks for the host site. First Max Damage production was number 1 track on MDS also.
Dj Psyphoria is the only psychedelic trance act to become a finalist in Pioneer search for a dj competition making the first psychedelic pioneer mix of the month. The outcome of Pioneer DJ Search being that I placed 5th over all, pretty solid for the first Psy finalist. Recently I took Dj Psyphoria to an international level.
My goal as an artist is to grow in a perpetual manner and to help others grow around me so that the whole industry expands as I share my signature idea's with the world.
