Basilisk is the founder of the Ektoplazm label group and distribution portal, one of the leading psytrance web sites, and a veteran DJ with broad musical interests. After learning to spin vinyl records in the late 1990s he developed a smooth mixing style based on long, harmonic transitions. In 2009 he upgraded to an entirely digital setup to maximize the creative possibilities of his sets. Nowadays he continues to explore a vast spectrum of sound past and present, loosely centered on old school Goa trance and adjacent styles of music, without concern for genre boundaries, industry standards, and passing trends.
From Earth Orbit is an electronic music blog operated by Basilisk, a veteran DJ and record label owner equally interested in exploring cutting edge sounds and unearthing lost classics from the archives. This site showcases his mixes, charts, reviews, and published articles pertaining to psytrance, techno, house, IDM, electro, ambient, and adjacent genres.
