Electronic music producer, Fabien is the man behind Illegal Machines. He has listened to electronic music since he was a teenager and started DJing psytrance music in 1997.
Then he decides to go to the next step and start to buy equipment and begin to write music. After few years of practicing, he created the project Illegal Machines and in the meantime he joins the band Terraformers (with Stefan from Total Eclipse and David Shanti). With this band he released his first tracks on T.I.P. records and performed on major events like Soulclipse festival in Turkey and Boom 2006 in Portugal.
He decides to focus on his own project Illegal Machines and start releasing on labels like Bom Shanka, Doof, Free Radical, Peak, Looney Moon and in 2009 a split album (Between Sanity and Madness feat Bombax) on Free Radical Records. In 2008 he joined the force of Bom Shanka Music and soon started side projects “Illegal Sensations” with the Russian legend Parasense and “Big Scary Monsters” with the full having it duo Psymmetrix.
With over 30 releases with all his different projects and collaborations, and playing all over the globe (Europe, South Africa, Brazil, Costa Rica, Japan, Australia ,Israel etc) Fabien continues to spread his unique groovy psychedelic style and work on a new album.
Decos by CARIN DICKSON, South Africa
Life is an adventure when you catch rainbows and chase the sun. Creation is the fuel that navigates this Self-existing Yellow Star through the cosmos. Travelling the extents of existence to capture experience and deliver unto the world an expression of imagery. Exploring the fertility of the minds’ unique bounty manifesting a feast for the eye. A journey into the imagination on a voyage of endless possibilities. Born in the Mother land, a ’79 vintage, after shoulder-pads and before reality TV, at summers end under the sign of the determined ram, this painted warrior dances in the rain and worships the moon. Gathering inspiration from the world, powered by self-motivation and the unrelenting urge to paint everything, a tye-dyed butterfly was shaped.
Continually evolving and experimenting with dimension, tweaking perspective with colour vibrancy and contrasting the surreal with balanced definition, compelling an otherworldly escapade in a harmonious environment.
A billboard sized canvas armed with a 2cm paintbrush can be transformed in a matter of days and with an airbrush can cover an engulfing stretch in ultraviolet brilliance before the sun sets. With enough paint and a bit of time ““ the world.
When eyes become leaden and arms beg for respite its back to dream of beautiful surroundings, dancing colours and music moving blissful bodies. The desire to infiltrate beauty into peoples’ lives started with commissioned murals while finishing with 4 distinctions at the National School of Arts in Johannesburg ’96. The next few years were spent painting restaurants, nightclubs and private homes, building a recognisable name throughout the country. By ’99 my art could be found in some of the top venues in South Africa.
At the age of 22 a series of paintings were completed for Standard Bank and a massive mural covering a government building in Jhb city centre for a BMW ad featured on TV. That year also saw the beginning of backdrops, for event companies, festivals and parties including psychedelic scenes featured and sold at the Zambian Solipse Festival. Hungry for new horizons the travel bug bit and Thailand found me decorating restaurants. One year and a million miles later in the Mojave Desert no wall was safe. In California, the famous engineer of SpaceCraftOne Burt Rutans’ home had little defence, as well as his infamous pilot and fellow South African, Mike Mevill, whose home too fell prey to the ubiquitous paint. Mexico swirled with my colour at the Sonpax festival on a beach near Cancun. Three months in Spain during the summer of 2003 produced what is reputed to be the biggest mural on the Costa del Sol, a 250m square piece of my soul at the Aztec Country Club Resort which hailed a nail-biting live interview on an English tv channel and an article in Hi Society Magazine. Soon the call of Africa summoned me home. Nesting in the mountains of Cape Town cultivated works of fine art in oils, exhibited at the renowned Kirstenbosh Gardens and various other galleries. By the end of ’05 my ultraviolet fingerprint marked all the biggest psytrance festivals in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
The following year at the Voov festival in Germany my 8m high Dragon backdrops were mounted above an audience of 8000 people. The German magazine, Mushroom Mag, featured my art on its glossy front post with a humble article inside. The year of the fruitful Pig ’07 returned me to soft sands of Thailand to orchestrate décor for the Black Moon parties and Ban Sabaii in Ban Tai on the famous island of Koh Phangan, updated on a continuous basis for travellers to revel in. The following year I was drinking Nepalese tea in the foothills of Everest on a riverside beach at the Shanti Jatra Full Moon Festival where my 3d ultraviolet Lotus stretched 6m high and 20m across joining stars and sand. A year later the winds blew me west, switching to Earl Grey I decorated Fuze, a small indoor event in London Town and showcased backdrops at the Ozora Festival in Hungary. In Early ’10 the Namaste Experience held in Lebanon exhibited my stretch artworks. Still coming up ths year I am collaborating with Extradimensional Space Agency on décor for Ozora and am exhibiting in the Boom gallery at the Boom festival in Portugal as well as displaying my psychedelic stretch at Afterboom-Utopia.
Over the past few years my art has gained international notability and it gives me great joy to share this obsession with vivid beauty in the manner it was created, to bring abundant happiness to the viewer. A nemesis to blank space my brush only rests when colour fills the world. Floating on a rainbow bubble, stirring in luminosity, filling the melting pot of life.

The *Healing Temple*
La musica elettronica è solo uno dei molti strumenti per trascendere le limitazioni dell’essere fisico. Pensiamo sia bene superare il preconcetto che vede la musica elettronica legata al mero “divertimento” ed abbracciare un’idea più ampia, che recupera il valore della musica e della danza come mezzo di trascendenza e guarigione.
Forti di questa convinzione, lo scorso anno abbiamo iniziato ad arricchire i nostri eventi con i Workshop di Yoga del mehent Bahruch Giri e dato il successo che abbiamo riscosso e l’interesse manifestato dai partecipanti abbiamo deciso che da quest’anno il filone degli Workshop verrà ulteriormente arricchito e sviluppato.
The *Healing Temple* workshops project
