ANIRVAN DEVA

Latest Sets

Anirvan Deva's multicultural sound crosses borders between world fusion, downtempo, hypnotic/melodic deep house. But don’t be surprised if it takes a side trip into broken beat, global bass or ancient mantras. His music goes beyond the boundaries of any specific tempo or genre, and yet his sound is always recognizable: delicate, deep and emotional. What and how he plays is designed to shake the body, move the heart and stimulate the mind.

Anirvan is born in Italy in 1970 and starts mixing tapes and vinyls at new wave-punk parties (84-88). In 1990 he is struck by the new Acid House/Techno rave scene and starts playing in local clubs (90-93). From the mid '90s he explores other beats and textures like ambient, chill out, trip-hop. His sound is in continuous evolution. In 1997/8 he falls in love with Drum and Bass and starts DJing and creating beats with a Roland MC 505. He plays also a few years in two bands: electronics with Mickey and Mallory and HC/metal with El KDO.

In 2004 he stops DJing and in 2005 starts practicing Yoga and a healthier lifestyle. He devotes himself to social service, contemplation, philosophy of yoga and kiirtan. For 5 years, every Sunday afternoon, he plays/sings Harinam Sankiirtan, around the city of Bologna, with some Hare Krsna mates and at the Ananda Marga Yoga retreats with different Rawa members. 

Anirvan moves to Auckland in 2011 and goes back to DJing, raising the vibration at many festivals and events (Prana, Earth-Beat, Voices of the Sacred Earth, NZ International Yoga Festival, Vegan Eats/Hip-Hop Beats, Dancing in the Park,  NZ Spirit Festival,  Ananda Bliss Portugal,Bhakti Festival Italia) as DJ and as part of the kiirtan groups Rawa Aotearoa and Qawwali Collective.

Anirvan Deva produces his own tracks and remixes others. The concept behind his work is to share relevant and uplifting messages for a genuine revolution of the heart.  He has been practicing mantra meditation and a vegan lifestyle for more than a decade and he is inspired by those people who are moved by a feeling of universal love and do their best to make this planet a better place. Tune in Radio Base fm, every Wednesday from 2 to 4pm, for listening to Anirvan Deva's show "Beneath The Surface".

DUNCAN FUNK

duncan.jpg

Duncan has been DJing for almost two decades. As a teenager listening to House & Garage on pirate radio stations in London, he developed a keen interest, and then a chance meeting in Ibiza in 1998 with Jason Shaw one of the residents of Hard Times in Leeds set him on the path. 

Since then he has played at numerous venues and held residencies in London, Melbourne and now Auckland. Considering the perceived promise of unadulterated hedonism and unprecedented levels of attention, the allure of becoming a DJ is easy to understand. Duncan however is one of a rare breed who challenges that mindset. Whenever you catch him at work behind the decks, the passion he has for music oozes from his pores. This is evident not only in the way that he meticulously selects his tracks, but also in his insatiable desire to engage, entertain and stimulate his audience. 

While he may not yet be a household name, this Harlesden born spin master is without a doubt an emerging talent to look out for.

GASTON FEITY

Latest Sets

Gaston Feity DJ, Producer, Musician and Artist was born in March 1983, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Before Electronic music hit Buenos Aires, a young Gaston Feity would tune in and listen behind closed doors, to a distant and captivating sound across the airwaves - that sound being the UK sound of Progressive House music, a genre that was becoming ever more popular in the 90’s.

Feeling drawn to the beats and euphoric music of the House movement, Gaston began studying the genre in depth - even importing vinyls from abroad to feed his hunger. It was then that he decided to bring House and Progressive House music to the ears of the people in B.A.

Playing at private parties for friends, word soon began to spread about the DJ Gaston Feity and the sound he was bringing from the underground. Spurred on by the public response he teamed up with M. Rosso and C. Viscomi and together they created the explosive team the ‘South America Project’ aka ‘Southa’.

Scoring gigs around B.A, Mar del Plata and Bariloche, ‘Southa’ even shared booths with those they respected in the game like Luke Flair, Ricky Ryan, DJ The Gee, Vidart, Marcos Paz and many more, Gaston Feity and ‘Southa’ were taking Argentina by storm!

As Gaston’s popularity grew, venues throughout Latin America began contacting him to play as their resident DJ. Landing spots at the Punta Del Este and Mar del plata surf competitions and festivals . Even a contract with Quicksilver and Skullcandy Headphones, Gaston was in demand.

By 2008, he was producing his first Radio Show, ‘Rude Box’ (FM 95.5). With music created by Gaston and teammate C. Viscomi, together they transmitted their creations across the airwaves of Argentina along with new sounds by their peers - Gaston had finally brought the Progressive House movement from the underground to the mainstream.

Continuously researching and experimenting to keep the music Fresh & Alive, whilst always staying faithful to the original style of House & Progressive House,

Gaston Feity is a man on a mission!
