Few karmic meetings in the studio resulted in Alpha Portal’s big bang birth. It set brothers-in-sound Avi Shmailov (aka Astrix) and Yoni Oshrat (aka Ace Ventura) on a promising path to become one of the scene’s most successful electronic music acts. They enhanced their music to the highest psychedelic reaches and through their amazing on-stage performances, Avi & Yoni will create unforgettable dance floor moments.

Vertical is the internationally established psytrance project of Joonas Lehtinen from Finland. The project saw daylight around 2007 and after few years of working on the sound and sending demos, he caught the interest of Giuseppe from Parvati Records. This was a big turning point in Joonas' life and with the new motivation he started to work on more material for his track repertoire.
Soon after his debut appearance on a Parvati compilation in 2009 he played his first gig outside Finland in Marseille (France) in the new year 2010. With the help of Parvati Records and guest appearances on many other labels he started to get more bookings in many legendary events and to grow a bigger fan base in the scene.
During the past years he has performed across Europe, Brazil, Japan, India and USA from club events to big festivals (Boom, Ozora, Psy-Fi, Hadra, Modem and Soulvision to name just a few).
Vertical's music is known for it's wide spectrum of styles and moods, never really staying in one formula but aiming to push the boundaries of psytrance with his signature sound and new ideas.
