Giuseppe is a busy bee who for good reasons founded his label Parvati Records in Denmark. As an Italian already curious, as a Psy-lover more than justified.
At the end of the 80s he moved around the world, visited India and Goa. A real traveler, therefore, who was and is very much connected with the hippie movement’s values. Deliberately he devoted himself to this alternative “way of life”. Peace and Love, a deeper understanding of himself and the world around him, were a mainspring as were as the search for psychedelic experiences. Psychedelic and / or electronic rock attracted him and paved the way to Psychedelic Trance. Different cultures, places and people have influenced him both intensively and positively and let him enter the psychedelic world. After more than 15 years he is often asked if he does not get bored, which he decidedly denies. Especially technology and music have developed so enormously which almost inspires him, as to what new ideas and music are produced thereby. Giuseppe, however, also names differences to earlier. While at the time only music and the party were in the forefront, today this has changed very much. Because at the time parties were also like a trip too, there were not so many DJs and they played many hours too. The dancers enjoyed each other, danced together, the party was the star. The basis for a psychedelic trip. Before Parvati Records as a label was born, legendary labels such as T.I.P., Flying Rhino Records and some other producers inspired him, whose tracks were often not released on sound carriers but could only be listened to at underground parties. Particularly intending to these tracks, was a drive to found a label. A passion, an intense hobby developed, and it was not at all foreseeable for Giuseppe how everything would develop. Music, deeper in the sound with deep atmospheres which is a musical experience, these were his intentions. In the beginning there were no such terms as Forest, everything was labelled under “Dark” (like the miserable “Goa” for Psytrance), but it signaled this much more intense form of music. Represented through their artist Parvati Records has accepted this creed and continued to develop it: Totally Into it. That’s the way it is.
His main activities are to keep the label running, to manage his artists and to offer a good service. To become a DJ himself one day never was his plan. Forced to this “venture” by friends, he jumped in at the deep end in 2004 and right after Rinkadink had to play in a crowded Danish club. He had no idea at all how this was gonna work, he looked over his colleague’s shoulder to get an idea how to do anything at all. Although he has been stuck there for many years now, he self-critically states that he is not really your technically versed DJ, but is always trying to grant people a good experience through music.
As the label’s only female actor, she is been present from the start. As Psilo Cowboys, she has released on Parvati together with Jahbo in 2001. She lives in Aarhus and has developed her very own production style also known as Danish sound.
Mono has been present since the label’s launch too. He started with Grapes of Wrath, developing continuously until his solo project. His 2. album “Connections” just got released. Always a 100% and deeply involved in the music, he’s developed into a technical freak. Mono is almost always in the studio and now does the mastering for Parvati Records.
Ilse was one of the first DJs to join the label. Already, the cooperation has lasted for many years. The artist living in Hamburg has always been stood out by his music selection, very focused on psychedelic elements and the danceability of the tracks. He also helps with administrative aspects of the label a lot.
