Born in London, Mark Day was surrounded by music growing up, either playing on the radio which was always on or listening to the soundtracks of video games.
During his teenage years he discovered a whole new world of electronic music, starting with trance and delving into many of the subgenres; he was in love.
After some years of searching the internet he came across the term ‘psychedelic music’ – the name intergued him so he decided to dig deeper which culminated in him finding an underground psytrance party in London by luck in late 2007.
After a year of going to parties he started to DJ at them and a couple more years later he started to produce his own music.
His psytrance music can be characterised by having a lot of sounds with layers of atmospheres over the top, always driving and with some psychedelic wizardry inside.
Having been lucky enough to have played his music around the world and continuing to do so, he is currently working on his debut album which will be released ‘at the right moment’
He is also a listener, collector and occasional producer of downtempo music and has done various mixes throughout the years which have been mainly distributed to close friends.
Mark is also big fan of experimental psychedelic music and he will play this kind of selection in his 2 hours DJ set at Unity


Eleanor from Australia is behind these projects. As she says for Alien Lazer Baby:
“A breakcore theatre style of story telling that covers everything from alien gangbangs, killing cops with lazerbeams, transformation – though you will have to see the live version for that!”
You can check recording from the opening of Unity Gathering 2019 here:
Sharkface project is more psycore oriented with elements of breakcore, speedcore and all core that exists!
” Do not be afraid of my sharp teeth, they are only for cutting constraints.
A safe space for the freaks and the weirdos, join me. It may be dangerous, it may be nurturing but it will defiantely be entertaining…”

PLANKTON (Anomalistic Records) 3 HRS LIVE CH

Amanda is a polyvalent artist passionate about creative expression through the arts, but holds a special fondness for music and visual arts. After exploring several mediums of expression, she found electronic music and saw it as a natural direction to flow into.
In 2009, she taught herself how to produce electronic music with her computer. In 2010, the PLANKTON project was born. This was the beginning of a passionate psychedelic journey which is still gaining momentum exponentially to this day. Her influences mostly come from Trip-Hop, Drum’n’Bass, Dub, Dark Techno, Mental
Tribe, Breakcore and many others, from the slowest to the fastest genres. Plankton also has an unconditional love for classical instruments, especially violin, cello and piano due to their wide range of expressiveness. Her eclecticism made her fall in love with psychedelic music due to the variety of sounds, and the deep and personal nature of a persons relationship with their own music and being able to share that with people is something that keeps her motivated.
Plankton project is a large variety of dark sounds that are designed to play with your standards through using unconventional arrangements and percussive elements over precise and massive sound designs all so potent with mood as silky cavernous pads set the tone. Plankton is always creating with the intent of pushing the limits further of what can be done or created or experienced. She is known for exploring new horizons and giving to the music a personal touch with deep feeling. There’s no rules or determined genres, this is a personal story shared from the beginning to the end.
The term plankton comes from the Greek derivative planktos, meaning wandering. These organisms spend a part of their life in a driving state with no ability to swim against a current, they just move with the flow, as her music.
She’s also behind two solo side projects, the first is Zatira (triphop, experimental beats) and the second is Disharmonic (tribe, mental music).

LUULI (Anomalistic Records) 8H LIVE US

Luuli aka Vyvian Looper is one of the pioneers of the psycore genre. Together with Cindervomit, they co-founded the legendary Anomalistic Records – a label focused on showcasing artists and music that didn’t have any idea how to fit in.
She is probably the first one who crossed psycore with breakcore and one of a few (or only one?) associated with the psychedelic scene who performed in the legendary Berghain Club, sharing the stage with Squarepusher, among others.
Luuli’s music and style are totally out of the box and very eclectic on such a level, that she can successfully perform both at the world’s leading festivals with experimental psychedelic as well as with experimental electronic music in the line-ups together with such projects like Richard Devine and the late Qebrus.
Luuli’s side projects are: solo project vYv – a manifestation of a slower and calmer side, often co-occurring with her vocals.
Coattttattbs – a collab with Cindervomit, and the newest one – Anomalistic Jam – a live collab together with Der Sandmann and Plankton.
