Latam (Thrancians | Romania)
Latam first played music at a party in 2004 in circumstances rather unexpected and unplanned. Back then he was almost entirely dedicated to goa psy-trance, listening for a while to this genre, and partially to progressive house/trance. After some years of practice and accumulating knowledge about what DJing means, encouraged by things going constantly up he decided to give up all other business and focus on music and mixing. Started to experiment and went gradually deeper into other sub-genres of electronica, playing as DJ Latam for a few years in parallel psy, trance, techno, electro, house or chill-out music, in various forms, before choosing to intake a new alter ego called Blooni for exploring more thoroughly the underground techno & house area; further more, since 2014 he has another avatar, Fractaliceanu, with whom he dives into the darker depths of psytrance.
His style is groovy, hypnotic, always psychedelic and can vary depending on the party profile, audience, location, line-up and hour of playing between a harder and a more deeper sound. He appreciates DJs and producers who manifest originality, innovate and have the courage to experiment, change themselves and inspire others.
Besides DJ-ing, Latam is involved in organizing and promoting events and artists through Thrancians organization, plus Unda and Spacesheep associations, being a co-organizer of Waha and Rebirth festivals which featured artists like Juno Reactor, Astral Projection, Psykovsky, Lyktum, Shane Gobi, Aphid Moon, Procs, Atriohm, Arjuna & many more. He also hosted a show called Oscillator on Radio Deea, the first romanian radio fully dedicated to electronic music.
Over the years i played at many international events in countries like Hungary, England, Portugal, Austria, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Czech Republic, Norway, Macedonia, Ukraine, Republic of Moldova, Bulgaria or in Crimea and of course Romania, from big festivals to underground parties, each with it’s unique specifics and charm.
