Paraform is Martin Roast, a psytrance producer and DJ based in melbourne Australia. Also known for his previous projects Dream Katcher(psy), Brain Animal(psy), Soulflava(HipHop), Jimmy Jams(chill,dub,house), and a punk electronic cross over outfit, Subliminal terrorists.
He first started producing beats for HipHop acts in 1989 at the age of 16 using a turntable, a tascam recorder, a commodore amiga and a sampler. Soon followed an interest in other electronic genres.
Quote "For many years I played around learning how to make all the sounds I wanted to be able to make. And going to parties, working out what type of crowd I like best ect. I fell for psytrance as soon as I heard it, nothing is better than a good outdoor doof and this music is made for big systems outdoors."
Now producing psytrance since 2003, and playing out Live since 2005, in Dream Katcher, and his Live solo act Paraform, in lineups along side most of melbournes top locals, as well as interstate and international guests. Currently awaiting his first track release as Paraform on the first CD release of a new lable currently being spawned by melbournes much loved Psycotic Episode crew, "Outback Alliance Productions".
Paraform does not try to make music that sounds like other psytrance.
Quote "I listen to a lot of psytrance and find a lot of it sounds the same, I love that sound, but its just more of a challenge for me to make original stuff than take an example and emulate it. Creation is addictive beware, I cant stop, I love making tunes."
With a background in electronic music production dating back over 19 years, Paraform has settled well into the psytrance genre, while maintaining a high level of originality. With inovatative new sounds, bluring the boundaries of psytrance by gathering influences from all types of electronic music. As well as the psychedelic music ledgends of the 60's, and all the far corners of our wide musical world, not to mention worlds of other earthly creatures from dimensions unknown to most humans.
Quote "Shhhhhh, dont tell anyone but Im not a decendent of earth beings, I cant sleep at night cause unlike humans my body isnt connected to earth and its moon, instead its connected to the solar system of my home planet, far far away.. But dont worry, I come in peace."
With music ranging from morning fullon tracks, to full-on uplifting night music with funky basslines and mind bending leads, through to the darker end of the spectrum. Paraform has the ideal music for any psychedelic moment.
