Since 1994, Dj Starseed has played in ten countries on four continents.

Jeremy was born in 1975, one sunny summer in Hollywood, California and was
by John Travolta. He moved to Sweden in 1981, and left 1994, and was to
spend the
next nine years travelling solidly.

Apart from Djing alongside psy-trance fame, such as Juno Reactor\'s Mike
Anti, GMS, Tsuyoshi, Koxbox, Dino Psaras, Etnica\' Max Lanfranconi, Antix,
Vibrasphere, and Olli Wisdom, Jeremy was also influenced by studio
sessions together
with Tim Healey (Quirk, Electric Tease, Allen & Healey etc.), Unconscious
(UK), Bioforce (D), D.I.M.O (BTM, Tatsu), and Shin (Jap), Celli
(Earthling, T.I.P).

Since the turn of the millenium Jeremy has studied sound engineering at
SAE in
Melbourne, Australia, and moved back to Sweden where he is now working on
new material under the guises \"Space Sage\", \"Reon\" and \"Fragrant Vagrant\".

His website is online with a new FV album
available for download, along with extra material, such as the remix he
did for Kingston AirForce, and other collaborations.

He works everyday in his studio which used to be home to Spiral Trax and
popular artists, such as the great Atmos, Noma & S-Range.

His Dj sets build harmonic structures based on musical scales and bpm
data, letting moods and more subtle aspects of music into focus...the
journey is often intriguing, and is meant to move the soul, the true self.

Humour is the key, the heart the door...

Name: Jeremy Reon Barnes
Age: 29, Born June, 1975 (Hollywood, Cal.)
Nationality: Dual, American/Swedish

The Fragrant Vagrant liveset aims to tickle , tease, and thrill, providing
the listener with just enough familiarity to provide comfort, while
combining trance with unexpected styles, like 50\'s Rock \'n\' Roll, and
adding textures from realities in a cinemasonic fashion.
