In a musical trance

By Maria Gregoriou

We may have had our first signs of rain, but that won’t be putting a damper on our night life, oh no, we are still very much into partying on the beach all day long if we have to.

And who will we be partying to this Sunday at Guaba Beach Bar in Limassol? That’s the night when the Guaba gang will be hosting the Israeli psychedelic trance DJ group, Skazi.

Skazi, who are Asher Swissa and Assaf B-Bass, was formed in 1998, when they started producing their unique style of trance music.

Although they come from a punk and hardcore background, Skazi were able to bring a new and innovative twist to the Trance scene, combining electronica with live guitar riffs and storming sounds that – back in the 1990s – were considered unorthodox compared to the global Trance movement.

Their first album, ‘Animal’, was released in 2000, showing the world that the face of Trance would never be the same again. The band has produced four compilations between 2001 and 2004, and they have also collaborated with a number of other artists.

For over a decade Skazi has covered every corner of the globe with intensive touring, performing mainly at the big raves and festivals, in front of tens of thousands of people.
And as of Sunday, Cyprus will be on the list of places that Skazi has been to, seen and conquered – in the musical sense of course.

Live performance by the DJ group. September 27. Guaba Beach Bar, Limassol. 10am-9pm. €5/free. Tel: 96-340000
