Absolute Threshold is the solo Psychedelic Trance project of South African DJ Yaseen Hartley, age 24.
Yaseen’s love for music begun at a young age with a wide range of genres such as hip hop and rock music as a motivational platform. Following this path, he inevitably fell into the more underground end of things, appreciating the more technical, organic and psychedelic sounds.
Yaseen was always very passionate about music. Although DJ’ing started out as a hobby for him in early 2016, after having gone for his first DJ lessons with DJ Josh Mac, DJ'ing quickly manifested into a serious passion for him. With his consistent hard work and the development of his own unique style and sound... He has what it takes to get crowds warmed up with his full power psychedelic, deep melodic and groovy more aesthetic sound.
Absolute Threshold played his debut Psytrance DJ set in the Garden Route, at Sonic Revolution festival in the Tsitsikama forest, Eastern Cape. Since his debut in 2016 he has grown as an underground Psytrance DJ, playing at indoor and outdoor events locally and nationally such as Urban Tribe presents The Playground festival Vol. 3 (KZN), as well as SoutherTipsy-Deception festival(Cape Town) 2018, Ear's Don't Lie, TranceMission, The Psy-Gasm Experience, Freaky Forest-Frenzy festival, Freaky Forest-Faisca festival, Freaky Forest New Years festival 2018/2019, Freaky Forest Frrr festival March 2019 and Southern Tipsy Winter Unleashed June 2019. He has also featured on and played a special guest mix for the Saturday Psydshow on Muthafm.com as well recorded and compiled an exclusive Podcast for the international record label, Sinuessa.
