Artax is the performance name for Lars Bergvaul, a DJ and producer from Sweden born in 1981. He started performing as Artax in 2000, and shows no signs of stopping. He changed his legal name to Artax Lars Bergvaul in 2008.
Artax has been hardcore touring the globe since releasing his debut album Super Position on Glowing Flame Records in 2004, and has used the experience to dig deep into the global psychedelic consciousness and pool together a stunning melting pot of psychedelic goodness. This all comes together in his new release 8 Bits of Bliss from SunDance Records
Screw Generation X and all their glory, this is generation Nintendo comin' at ya in a furious passing of generations! Heavily inspired by 80's gaming music, heavily inspired by the best of psytrance so far, this is a really unique look into electronic dance psychedelica, Lars invented a new sound that is unique to him. Huge driving basslines that never get too in your face, quirky, cutting edge engineering, blissful melodies, retro 8 bit sound exploration, its all here. Definitely an album that has been written with the huge festival sound systems in mind, the louder it gets the more it makes sense.
This is micro meets macro on a psychedelic mission beyond nintendo… play with it if you dare. Check out the new sound from the Swedish forest underground, you won't be disappointed.
