This young producer spent his first few years of ‘trancing’ simply enjoying the music, embracing the lifestyle and studying the true essence of this phenomenal way of life. One could say that he had seen the proverbial light.
In his studies he learnt that trance music was born in a time when the world was in dire straits, global conflicts were the order of the day and the masses were being force fed propaganda, coaxed into conforming to the societal norms outlined by the powers that be. Psy trance was also a powerful force behind global awareness, and that it provided the youth of the time a way to resist the status quo… Ultimately music could be a great tool to help bring about major shifts in consciousness within society…
Early March of 2015 saw the ordination of the Psy trance artist we now know as Priest; and even though the title has been his nickname for all of his adult life, this was the birth of someone and something completely new. The moniker itself is by no means religiously binding, but at the same time it is not merely a baseless gimmick that sounds cool. No; what you get when you encounter Priest is a young man, pure of heart, teaching without even preaching a word, and using his own life as an example to spread his message: Live as clean a life as you possibly can.
His music has been described by many as ‘authentic, playful and clever’, as well as ‘innovative, groovy and psychedelic’ by others, the culmination of dedication, passion and love. This EP ultimately describes his journey of awareness, first seeking something special and true... Then ultimately leading to the discovery of deeper levels of life and understanding, only to be blown away by the existence of something this amazing and having the opportunity to be a part of it…
