Psychedelic Romance returns to Parallel after their dazzling debut edition to present "Bio/Rythm".

Speedy & Steve (live)

What happens when two undisputed legends of Dutch techno join forces on stage? In the case of Speedy J and Steve Rachmad, no one knows before the lights go down and the music starts – not even the artists themselves.

There are no set rules or roles when Paap and Rachmad fire up their machines – they’re drawing on their decades of experience making and playing this music, and most importantly having fun with the process. Rachmad often brings his signature chords, pads and melodic arps into the mix, while Paap is more than comfortable tweaking rhythms and textures, but their sonic duties are fluid. There’s a certain intimacy around their performances, stemming from the relaxed, intuitive air of two seasoned pros discovering their common ground and having fun stretching their skills for an audience.

When it comes to emotionally charged techno and atmospheric ambient, JP Enfant is one of Amsterdam’s finest. Renowned for his trance-inducing techno marathons, he first acquired international recognition as a resident at Trouw and De School. Here, the aptly-named Psychedelic Romance was born: an explorative club night platforming an interesting and uncommon mix of techno and UK-bass artists.

Over the years, JP Enfant has expanded his musical scope to genres like ambient and electronica, most notably featured on his brand-new label Psychedelic Romance. This multi-faceted concept encompasses art and immersive experiences on and off the dance floor to reflect JP’s vision of dance music as a ritual for healing and elevation of the spirits of many.
