BMSS mixes


German based Boom Shankar is a Dj for Psychedelic Trance, the label manager of BMSS Records and an event promoter within Europe. Having been initiated into the Goa Trance scene in the early Nineties and by traveling the globe ever since, his sets are a mirror of the constant melting pot of fundamental Psytrance characteristics.

Whether he is guiding the dance floor through the night or into the morning, the outcome is always a voyage filled with a depth and an energy that allows the crowd to feel a sense of freedom through Trance. Groovy, deep, mature, hypnotic and clearly distinguishable.

Having played at many underground & major events worldwide, he has developed a full understanding of the flow and the energies of each dance floor and is flexible in terms of "styles". Through his impromptu sets, he is able to interact personally with each dance floor, taking the audience on a trans-formative journey. His sets are a direct form of communication through music.

For Boom Shankar, this process of mutual giving and receiving between the DJ and the audience has led to meaningful feedback from festivals like S.U.N. and O.Z.O.R.A., Antaris, Fusion, VuuV, Glade, Summer never Ends, Hadra, Doof, Moksha, Transahara, Transylvania Calling, Timegate, Ometeotl, Universal Religion, Freqs of Nature, Trimurti, Neon and in clubs from New York to Bangkok, London, Tel Aviv and nearly every other corner of the world. (Full details below)

Besides this, Boom Shankar is the label manager of BMSS Records where he has released 9 best-selling compilations so far: Transmissions, Transition, Cosmic Connections, the Trancendance triptych series (Prologue - Denouement - Epilogue), the Trancefusion 1 and Trancefusion 2 and the 20 years anniversary double CD compilation Return to the Source I and Return to the Source II.

Those compilations featured artists such as Aes Dana, Braincell, Tristan, Technossomy, Etnica, Pleiadians, Hux Flux, Total Eclipse, Sonic Species & Avalon, Eat Static, Pogo, Lucas & Mechanimal, Egorythmia, Ovnimoon, Atmos, Cosmosis, Electrypnose, Hujaboy, Touch Tone, Audioform, Headroom & Zen Mechanics, Entheogenic, Talpa, Martian Arts, Outsiders, ManMadeMan alongside all BMSS residents. He is working on his tenth VA which will probably see the light in spring of 2020.

In addition, Boom Shankar is part of the S.U.N. Festival crew in Hungary, the Alice im Wummerland party series in Germany and is working on a new music project together with Soul Kontakt from Malta entitled "Lightsource".
