Oberon is a project by Stathis T. born in Corfu in 1964.
Started getting involved with professional music in the 1980’s,
when he studied sound engineering and worked in several studios and live concerts.
Same time, he got into djing, playing new and dark wave music
and mixing it with more experimental sounds.
After a magic trip to Goa in 1991 he started playing psychedelic trance and in 1995
he was organizing indoors and outdoors events under the name Uforica and Space Alchemy.
In 2007 he started producing his own sounds, mixing his Goa/old school influences
with fresh psytrance elements and modern production.
Since December 2009 he has been playing for Neurotrance records (http://neurotrance.org/)
and in February 2012 he established Space Alchemy Lab (http://spacealchemy.net/)
a free music netlabel, together with dj Sunborn.
Same time was invited to participate Purple Hexagon records (www.purplehexagon.com)
as producer and official mastering engineer of the label,
while keeping mastering and doing cover artwork for several artists too.
Tell us a little about you and your work:
i like to keep a low profile way and just express my feelings and thoughts only via the music i produce. My sound i try to be varieted and not in a specific style, some sounds more good on morning some others at night. This happens not by purpose, just comes. At least psytrance is a bunch of feelings isn’t it?
Currently what projects are you working on? And what future plans have you chalked out for yourself?:
I pass some lazy times, where some research, some recordings, some very old tunes i grow up with, some mastering work and some graphic designs are rounding on my desk often, but not really focusing this moment on a spceific plan. Later on in winter we plan to release v/a-Human Transformation vol3 at Space Alchemy Lab, plus a new EP for spring/summer 2015, plus 2-3 tracks that in the road for relasing in various labels v/a’s.
