Lineup :: DJs :: Rakshasi Hornpipe
New York City
Taking his name from a demon-defeating dance in Aldous Huxley’s utopian novel Island, Rakshasi Hornpipe is a New York based DJ, raised on Technics & 12” vinyl in the late '90s. With a decade plus of mixing in & out of various EDM genres, from progressive breaks to atmospheric drum & bass, his mixing is tight & smooth, using harmonics & long blends. In 2008, Rakshasi Hornpipe stumbled into the world of psychedelic trance, reignited his passion for dance music, melted down the vinyl, & started traveling a little lighter. Now, his sets range from deep, groovy twilight sounds to heavier mental mania. A regular DJ in upstate New York & an increasingly familiar face behind the decks in NYC, he has DJ'd all around the Northeast US, from urban warehouses to open country fields & forests, allowing the energy of the atmosphere to shape the music. A member of the Radial Engine Tribe (Upstate NY) & a recent addition to the SYNC (NYC) team, Rakshasi Hornpipe is grateful to weave together sets from so many talented psytrance producers for you to stomp away your stresses on the dancefloor.
