Founder of T.O.U.C.H. Samadhi
Amidst the constantly changing psy-trance genre, Kri has exhibited a continuing passion for the depth and multi-layered sound that evolved from Goa Trance in the early days of the scene. While playing and composing melody driven tracks that always demonstrate skilled musicianship, Kri rouses listeners into fluid, euphoric motion and paints the party a vibrant psychedelic shade.
Playing and producing Psychedelic Goa Trance for over 19 years, Kri demonstrates immense dedication to the art by his ceaseless attention to every detail of the experience. Be it playing, composing, mastering, or promoting, there is no area in which Kri falters, making sure to work respectfully alongside other gifted artists devoted to the trance scene. His flawless mixing skills have earned him the respect of promoters around the country, and his professional approach to event production has elevated the TOUCH Samadhi annual fall gathering to one of the premier trance festivals on the East coast, blending a rich variety of live and electronic musical performance, sublime psychedelic visual art, and a message of universal peace, which together catapult attendees into intergalactic spiritual bliss.
As a performer, Kri weaves a musical spell that indulges listeners into easily merging with and being uplifted by positive Twilight Psychedelic Trance tracks. The sound he creates through his live act Annunaki is being heralded around the planet and is breathing simmering new life into the Trance world as if the music is propelled by a dragon high on Kundalini yoga. Kri’s superb intuition for playing to the human element produces a dance floor experience of complete immersion, of carnal union with the velvety flow of the beat, the body, the bass, the boom. Whether spinning a DJ set or performing a live set of his own compositions, Kri brings us music that forces us to remember why we are alive and to give thanks for every nuance of that sacred gift.
