Ninesense is the new Psytrance project by Nuno Cabral, born in the USA and raised in the Azores Islands, Portugal. He started developing an early taste for psychedelic music by chance, and he soon realized how powerful and catching it can be. The passion as listener turned into several years of focus and dedication, and eventually into an intensive knowledge about Mixing and Producing techniques. Nuno’s first project, Manipulation, fascinated many Labels on the scene, which included his innovative and energetic productions in their official releases. Among them, Manipulation best fostered a stable collaboration with Kinematic Records and Zero 1 Music. In 2015, Nuno has given birth to his new psytrance project, Ninesense, and in 2016 he has joined the Blacklite Records’ crew. With us, he will release his first full Album in February 2016 and we just can’t wait to share it with you! His music is always intended to lead the listener in a full sensorial journey – 5 senses is not enough – ranging from groovy morning psytrance to fast night time sounds.

Primordial Ooze through countless mutations eventually developed opposable thumbs for twisting knobs and smashing buttons. Inspired by filtering experiences into sound by shaping waveforms and encouraging them to bubble and adapt to their sonic environment Primordial Ooze puts you in the center of the cosmic symphony. This sound surrounds you with frequencies immersing you into vibrant, ritualistic compositions that resonate deep within your primeval memories.

With the experience of DJing since the late 90’s and playing live since 2005 the sets skillfully guide dancers through a multitude of intensities and moods. Be it mysterious or joyous, menacing, or just outright nutty, it is always engaging.

Nat Black’s enthusiasm behind the decks comes from his deep love of electronic music and the influences he has carried throughout his career. Born in the San Francisco Bay area he was exposed to the rebellious music of the Golden Gate scene growing up and took that spirit with him when he began to Dj as a teenager in Florida. Managing UrbandWax records in college, his love for underground music grew as he distilled his sound and perfected his technique with residencies at the legendary Simons in Gainsville and SKY60 Orlando. Always pushing forward for his love of music, Nat earned his degree in Audio Engineering and began producing and working in recording studios in Miami in 2002. Following career opportunities Nat made his way to Charlotte in 2008 and quickly cemented himself in the Queen City scene when he partnered with Lora Campbell at Dharma Lounge Charlotte. Part owner and full time resident dj, Nat set the stage for some amazing parties that have made Dharma one of the legendary spaces in Charlotte’s nightlife history. Since Dharma’s closing in 2014 he has continued to push the boundaries with the ‘TechNO You Didnt’ parties at Crown Station and Bassment parties at Label Charlotte. Currently Nat holds residencies at FYI and Resonant parties in the new Bassment venue featuring a Funktion One system installed and tuned by him. Always riding the line between serious and playful, Nat’s sets span genres and his connection to the audience is what pushes him forward. When asked to classify his style he answered ‘I play other people’s music and sometimes my own’
Although he started his career spinning progressive house and speed garage in the mid-90’s, xb’s focus on trance was fairly solid even before he came across Man With No Name and his Perfecto Fluro remixes of epic trance anthems. Back then people called the stuff Goa trance, and it had its own community separate from the more mainstream mega-rave culture of Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, and Tiesto in the US. For those who know him, it makes perfect sense why xb would be drawn to such a community, but in reality the music just fit. Hard, fast, loud, dirty and beautiful; exactly that for which he had been searching in music. So he jumped in with both feet.
During the last few years of the 90’s and the beginning of the 00’s, xb performed at psytrance parties whenever he could, but had to make a hard choice between finishing school or taking his DJing career to the next level. And so he packed his tables and vinyl away, seemingly for good in late 2001, with a few truly random exceptions.
But that was then, and this is now.
Thanks to the support from his friends and family, and surprise cosmic convergence, xb is back. You’ve been warned.
