Climbing through the ranks of California’s up-and-coming DJs, Carlos Arteaga has been making his presence known in the trance community in a swift span of time. With almost a decade of experience and counting, Arteaga’s love of DJing transformed the young adult’s life while continuing to promote the trance movement forward in the US.
It was in 2008 where he discovered the fast, hard-hitting styles of dance music, where he pursued this captivating sound from the illustrious main room, to the depths of the distinct underground. In 2014 he started breaking into the nightlife circuit and playing in California’s established dance clubs.
Aside from performing on stage, in 2015, he attended Point Blank’s academy of music production, where he was taught about the art of music production. Arteaga also sought out guidance from AM Studios, taught by Allan Morrow, and SKapade Studios, led by tech trance producers Stephen Kirkwood and 2nd Phase.

Ganesh is one the Los Angeles dance scene’s early innovators. His unique sound and style has made him stand out from the crowded ranks of L.A. DJs, plus his mindset and motivation continues to serve him in his career that spans now over two decades. Ganesh has made himself one of the most sought-after Trance artists as he took on the title of "Dreamstate resident", gracing the stage of Insomniac's crown jewel -- EDC Vegas.
Starting his DJing career in 1995 in Santa Barbara, CA, like most DJs, Ganesh began by playing small house parties, clubs, and occasional one-off shows. Willing to do anything to get a gig, he would even offer his own turntables and mixer for the second room. Not satisfied with playing just for other people, Ganesh took DIY to heart and in '97, started the Santa Barbara club night "Digital” which was dedicated to the harder side of dance. Booking DJs he wanted to showcase while honing his own skills and style, thus began his longtime friendship with his mentor and L.A. legend: Thee-o..
Ganesh has played across the country, displaying his matchless style of trance to large capacity crowds alongside world-class talent including Paul Van Dyk, Cosmic Gate, Astrix, John OO Fleming, Ferry Corsten, BK, Nick Sentience, Baby Doc, and more. He's held residencies with the notorious productions of R.O.A.M., Warm & Fuzzy, and TeknoKlub parties as well as club "Red" which was voted "best after-hours" by Los Angeles’ "New Times".
Wanting to support the scene's producers and labels, Ganesh took up writing about the music he loved and held the Genre Editor position for the monthly music magazine "Freebass". He has published a monthly column on the state of UK Hard House/NRG in the late 90's and early 2000's that featured reports and news from as far off as Australia and reviews of the newest, most innovative tracks. Ganesh has also conducted multiple interviews anda label profiles on the global scene's elite.
Ganesh has been a source of inspiration to the new ranks of up-and-coming DJs. Working as a genre buyer/vinyl pusher for the best record store in LA, the infamous "Vinyl Fetish", Ganesh began devoting entire walls to Hard Trance, NRG, and UK Hard House at time when shops had hardly heard the style. He brought a new sound to the L.A. dance scene with a style that blended heavy pulsating bass lines, intense rhythm, and razor-sharp synths. His current sound has evolved but the feeling is as driving, energetic, and memorable as before.

His DJing career has taken him to every corner of the world and he is no stranger to festivals and main rooms – the bigger the better for a sound as big as his.

It comes as no surprise that eventually, Jeff Alexander would dive into the world of music. Born in Southern California but now residing in Texas, Alexander had always been exposed to music in some way, shape or form. His father, a piano player and audiophile provided Alexander with his first steps into loving music. Throughout his life, he’s learned to play the piano, drums and bass guitar, thus embracing music as a constant in his life.
After attending a variety of raves growing up, Alexander began dabbling in the world of electronic music. He was heavily involved in them such that he would set up audio and participated in other miscellaneous forms. This fascination with the rave scene proved to be the main catalyst that would drive him to produce electronic music. In 2012 he began DJing for fun, but shortly after, production piqued his interest. Wyked, his first project, focused on bass music.
Over time like all artists, Alexander would find his niche. Specifically, in two genres under the umbrella of electronic music: Trance and Techno. For the latter, he began a project by the name of Dream Gates, a two-man powerhouse with local act and friend Mike Silva in 2016. Unfortunately, the duo disbanded but this would pave the way for Qhemist, Alexander’s current project focusing on the realms of both of his beloved genres. He showcases this zeal for these genres through his bi monthly radio show by the name of Elements.
Releasing just one track called “Don’t Touch” for free on his Soundcloud proves that this was his calling. The track gained great popularity in very little time while getting heavy rotations on DI.FM. The journey of releasing hits continues as Alexander signed his first tracked entitled “Third Eye” on TRANCEfonic Records. This was followed by an EP release by the name of Euphoria which reached #8 on the Beatport Psy Trance charts and remained in top position for a while.
The DJ and producer has been making a name for himself locally and internationally, featuring music on Diamond 107.8 radio in the UK with the station playing his tracks frequently; all on top of his latest release “Organic” printed on UK based Let It Out records. Yet another impressive feat, “Organic” has quickly soared through the Beatport Psy Trance Charts.
Qhemist’s productions have gained attention from the likes of many and will continue to do so, as Alexander gains a constant following while striving to “one-up” his productions, with each one better than the next. While the role of producer is his primary objective, as for the artist role, it is his mission to paint a wonderland for his listeners. He wants to captivate his listeners into that same world that enchanted him through high quality, heart pounding music. With more pristine and original productions on the way, multiple collaborations and a mega impact on the scene, the future is absolutely promising for this rising star.

His debut release "Clown Town" was included on the legendary Dacru Records' "Uncharted VI" compilation. Sentinel 7's debut EP "Mushroom Bass" was released shortly after on American based Psytribe Records and reached the top 40 on Beatport's Psytrance Chart.

Traveling far and wide to pioneer a fresh new sound to one of the oldest genres of dance music, SUBMERSIVE of Los Angeles is drenching listeners in a multi-sensory experience through the powerhouse anthems of progressive trance and psytrance. Producing under the artist name SUBMERSIVE, which stems from submerging one’s self in the subsonic bass frequencies of music, the trail-blazing 26-year-old producer takes listeners on an ethereal journey beyond the tangible world. “The goal of my music is to give people a transcendent experience in a musical environment,” explains SUBMERSIVE, who has become an innovator of new sound within the structured genre. Though SUBMERSIVE is already making strides in the California music scene, his sonic revolution started years ago when he first discovered the power of rhythm.
Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, SUBMERSIVE first picked up a pair of drum sticks at the age of ten, which then lead him to explore different realms of music. He played his first DJ event at the ripe age of thirteen and never looked back. Years later, SUBMERSIVE moved to Los Angeles, the heart of the US dance music scene, and pursued his career as both a DJ and music producer with a mission to heighten all senses through the hypnotic art-form of Trance.
Now SUBMERSIVE continues to fuse fresh melodic concepts with Trance’s driving basslines and rhythm-oriented style. It’s without a doubt that the exhilarating additives to the genre take all SUBMERSIVE fans on a ride through space and time and breathes life back into the universal energy that connects us all. In this modern age of endless sub-genres and song redundancy, SUBMERSIVE proves that Trance continues to be a cornerstone of electronic dance music. “Trance, in my opinion,” SUBMERSIVE explains, “is the continuation of what the earliest humans discovered: the connection between music and soul, and that’s what I aim to accomplish with every one of my songs.”
Transcendent is defined as “Beyond or above the range of normal or merely physical human experience”.
There’s not a better way to describe Transcendent, aka Krystal Ramirez, the DJ / producer from Southern California. Having discovered a love for music at a very young age, her journey began at the age of 7. Learning a wide variety of instruments as she grew older, Krystal mastered multiple instruments - piano, saxophone, flute, and guitar.
As a teen in the early 2000s, Krystal fell in love with the rave scene – this would be where her love for Trance music was born. She wanted to be the one controlling the crowd, often imagining herself behind the decks. The way DJs would tell a story was amazing to her, like they were reading a beautiful love story but through music. She too wanted to tell a story and leave a mark on the world.
Now in her 16th year as a DJ with a deep background in Trance music, the past 5 years Krystal has fallen in love with the Psychedelic side of Trance music, putting her unique twist on the genre while keeping a heavy yet Progressive sound. This sound has opened doors to countless club gigs and the biggest festivals in California, such as 420 Fest and Dreamstate.
As a producer, she has set out a goal to create something new with a twist of Psy & Goa Trance, such as her latest release “Pareidolia”. With live mashups to sampling, Krystal keeps you intrigued throughout her explosive performances with a unique ear for blending tracks.
