Jon Klein (Specimen, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Sinead O’Connor) has also been bringing his sublime guitar skills to the Mad Tribe studio sessions. Tracks such as “Peak Experience”, “Time Warp” and “Electro Convulsive Therapy” have been electrifying dance floors everywhere.
Max Peterson has been performing and releasing his unique brand of trance music under various project names since 1998 including the seminal San Francisco trance project BIODEGRADABLE & SIRIUS ISNESS. In 2007 he started his solo project MAD MAXX perfecting a unique sound, embodying all the travels, experiences and parties.
Olli Wisdom is the man behind the psychedelic phenomenon that is Space Tribe. Olli has been a pioneer of Psychedelic Trance for many years and Space Tribe is one of the most well known names in the psychedelic scene. In 1993, Olli, his brother Miki, and fellow space cadet, Richmond, started Space Tribe clothing in Bali. The fractal fluoro party gear was an instant success, and now you can see it at parties all over the planet. Space Tribe released their first album, ‘Sonic Mandala’ in 1996, and since then they have released at least one album every year.

‘Tracing The Roots’ is the 1st edition of a new ethno, folk-jazz and traditional music festival in Dublin.

This festival is special because of its anthropological approach. The event explores the source of traditional music, and follows its transformation into the contemporary music styles presented by its guests.
This time they have focused on Easter Eouropean regions looking for roots of traditional ethnic music from Poland and Carpathian areas. At the festival you can hear two great formations, The Supertonic Orchestra and the legendary Orkiestra sw. Mikolaja (Eng. The Saint Nicholas Orchestra)!
The event co-hosting The Supertonic Orchestra is a well known group from Dublin, who will present Polish, Klezmer and Balkan traditional music mixed in with contemporary styles. However, the firs act of the night is the legendary Polish group Orkiestra św. Mikołaja (Eng:The Saint Nicholas Orchestra) a true star among ethno-folk bands in Europe.
