The psytrance culture in Kosovo was established from year 2001, where a multi-cultural festival called “Crossing Bridges” was held on the beautiful mountains of Peja. Steffan Ludley and Conni Maly (Lava 303) who played on this festival were among the ones to thank for, after influencing the clubbing scene with colorful vibes. This was followed with the establishment of PSYKS (Psychedelic Kosova) in 2004, a community of united musicians, painters and jugglers who were responsible for organizing the first outdoor events around the country. Parties mainly happen on the capital city of Prishtina and also in south, Prizren – the more touristic, cultural city and nature-surrounded of-a-kind.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Artist/DJ/Party Organizer/Label Founder of Lotus Feet Records
Inspired by a wide variety of diversion in genres, Visar reached his first step into the psychedelic world on year 2004. After seeking the properly tuned frequencies, he became a reflection of his altered state - whose purpose is meant to serve the right sounds for the creation of an absorbing portal between inner and outer space. His project, Younion is mainly concentrated on organically liquefied and cosmically synchronized psychedelic dance music but besides, the pleasure on transcending to the ambient side of musical consciousness is just like the other ear of the head.
