Check out the LINE UP
Living Frequencies project is about combining daily facts of life with a good dose of fantasy and turning them into sound. Behind this project is Giannis Pap from Thessaloniki, Greece with several studies at computer science and technology. At a very young age he was introduced to electronic music until he finally discovered psytrance which was a lifechanger. His passion led him to produce his own music in order to express his ideas and contribute to this unique community and so around 2008 the journey begins! Working non-stop to upgrade the storytelling and production, he’s always in search for the best results in the studio.
Giannis loves tweaking synthesizers and analog gear, blending them in the live sets to make each performance unique. Since a few years he’s a member of Harmonia Records. After many years of dedication, continuous work, endless searching and playing music, this project is more mature than ever to take the audience in a unique listening experience!

The project “Psy Color” was created by Redian Zyka, born and raised in Albania. His love for Psychedelic Music and Culture developed during his teenage years while working as a Sound Engineer. In 2014, he organized his first Psytrance party for his birthday at the Grand Park of Tirana, where many people joined. This event marked the day he played music for the first time, and he has continued ever since. In 2015, he organized his first official open-air party. He continued to host events over the years, including editions like “Tujoni n’Fest,” “Om Festival,” and “Psychedelic Lovers.” In 2017, he joined forces with Kurisu to create “Venus Visionary” as an Event Organizing Crew and Psytrance Music Label in Albania.
The core vision of “Venus Visionary” aligns with Venus as a Planet and Goddess of Love and Beauty, coming from the hearts of people regardless of their origins. Together, they began promoting and supporting local and international artists and DJs, aiming to bring and spread Psychedelic Culture in Albania and strengthen the global tribe across different countries. Over the years, the dream evolved with four Open Air Festivals, including “Venus Tribe” (2018) and three editions of “We are One” Festival (2017 – 2019), along with 15 indoor and outdoor parties in Albania and four parties in Vietnam during 2020. Psy Color’s selected music primarily focuses on FullOn – Twilight, serving as his main tool to keep people dancing to harmonious sounds mixed with dark effects and details.
