Ferksta John Paul Moss Waitakere, New Zealand Nothing to be concerned about... Go here for more: mixcloud.com/Ferksta/ And so it seems, that perception is shaped by what’s predominantly being carried inside…Acquired illusory baggage picked up early on in life and through the lessons of experience. At some point in the journey, perhaps by grace or awakening, the burden is discarded - with realization that the extra weight is not really necessary for the trip. And all that’s required is to trust in our natural state - the inner guidance, the innocence, wonder and love that one’s soul came pre-equipped with…for the trek across time. Bio Ferksta’s music selection style is difficult to box. He crosses so many genres whenever he plays and is not afraid to try the new with the old. In general terms Ferksta plays progressive psychedelic trance… most of the time. But he also loves the chunkiness of good psytech, the kick of meaty techno, and the weight of a good rolling bassline regardless of its label. In any given set you will also find lush organic soundscapes and atmospheric journeys swirling around and through the driving basslines he prefers. More than anything though, it is Ferksta’s mixing style that defines his sound. Preferring 3 decks wherever possible, Ferksta mixes very deep into each track, often layering different elements from the tunes he has selected to create whole new live remixes. Why have one recorded bassline when you can blend your own on the spot right? Bringing in vocal and other samples to paint his soundscape, and never afraid to pitch it up or to pitch it down to suit the floor, Ferksta engages with the crowd and works the mixer non-stop through his sets. Ferksta has been in the dance industry in New Zealand and playing music for over 20 years. He runs a successful and loved psychedelic events company Aum Productions with his partner Anna, and loves life and all it has to offer.
