DJ Acan

Acan started to realize his passion for psychedelic electronic music in 1994. After being resident DJ in Club shambhala (Austria`s first Psytrance-Club), he appeared Europewide for the first time in summer 1997 as he played in Sweden, Hungary, Greece, Germany and the Boom!-Festival in Portugal.
In winter 1998 he toured in Asia and spreaded his vibe at parties in Taiwan, Japan, Bali, India. Coming back with lots of inspiration Acan toured again through Europe in summer (Belgrade, Switzerland, Italy, Kroatia) and expanded his activity for electronic lifestyle by opening the first psychedelic shop called "Chactun-Cyberstore" in Vienna in October 1998 in order to set up a basement for the growing trance-scene in Austria. Moreover he started promoting parties as "Suntribe-Events".
First Highlight was Earthdance 1998 with over 800 people dancing for peace and community. It was the biggest indoor party in Vienna so far.
After a couple of other Suntribe-parties with special guests like Jaia, Mindfield, Tsuyoshi, Fred Giteau and Gabriel Le Mar and some more DJ-gigs abroad (Kroatia, Switzerland, Germany,...) the suntribe-crew took part at the Freeparade 1999 (a big street festival in Vienna similar to Loveparade) where he spreaded his sound and vibe to a wider range of audience.
With his highly appreciated freestyle-set at Solipse 1999 Acan showed his love for alternative psychedelic music for the first time to the European scene.
Nowadays Acan can provide a selective range of alternative electronic music styles ranging from deep and funky psychedelic trance to electro-acid-breakbeats, downtempo and triphop.
