Style : Crazy melodic psychedelic trance
Jannis "Filteria" is a producer from Stockholm, Sweden.
His first contact with psychedelic music was in 1996 after buying some Goatrance compilation. He got amazed by the energy of the music and slowly started buying equipment to make something of his own.
After 5 years of tweaking and playing around with midi, he bought himself a new computer and started this psychedelic project in 2003.
As an artist he tries to keep the true spirit of psychedelic trance by having lots of melodies and sound-layers. All his tracks have at least 3 melodic climaxes. He has been strongly influenced by the sound of 96-97 especially by the Italian maestros Etnica-Pleiadians but he found his "Filteria style" and keeps it up to date.
His first live performance was in late 2003. Since, he's been sending dance floors to space in Sweden and Europe, and soon in South America.
Filteria released his first album "Sky Input" in November 2004 on Suntrip Records, several tracks on compilations in 2005, including Phase3 on Etnicanet, has tracks scheduled with Tranceform and Kagdila, records and trusted Suntrip again for his second album, "Heliopolis" which was released February 2006. This release followed his debut album with even more gusto. An amazing collection of pure audtitory madness, featuring a remix of the classic Crop Circles track Lunar Civilization.
