Fungal Distortion (formerly known as Abhainn Daze) is Gabriel Ranson, a 22 year old Tasmanian born DJ/ budding Producer living in the sunny south east of Queensland otherwise known as Brisbane and currently signed to Cerebral Meltdown Records.
Growing up in the lush forests of Tasmania, the dry cane fields of Mackay, the sand and sun drenched Sunshine Coast, the beautiful confines of Northern New South Wales and the smog machine Brisbane has given him exposure to many types of music, ranging from blues and heavy metal all the way through to classical and swing. This love of music combined with his introduction to Psytrance in late 2003 meant it was only a matter of time till he began mixing and writing. Formerly the lead vocalist for Brisbane based Thrash Metal band Breach Enemy Lines, Gabe began DJ'ing in June 2012 and has played all over Queensland and Northern New South Wales at events such as Moontopia, Earthdance, Stunned Mullets, Cave of Wonders and Deep Space.
Using influences from a broad range of fields Fungal Distortion combines the raw beauty and power of his namesake with the intense, high energy of twisted night time psychedelic trance to create a moving and fun filled journey for everyone and aims to create lasting memories for dancers everywhere.
