Sangoma Records

California, USA


Upavas got turned on to Goa music in 1986 in Goa, India. Several years of Goa trance djing followed throughout the early and mid 90s. A few of his ambient tracks got licensed to film and tv, some first psy releases of his followed on ep’s, 2 albums and a lot of VA releases in the early 2000s. A dream came true when in 2007 Upavas got a bachelors degree in sound design for visual media.  It is there where he developed a real knack for making synthesizers do funny stuff and coax them into doing his bidding. In 2013 by chance, Upavas was taken into Sangoma Records’ artist roster, where he happily continues his mischief and produces and performs his own interpretation of psy trance. Currently Upavas is very busy, writing brand new music and collaborating with a lot of folks, to complete an upcoming full Sangoma Album and to prepare a whole new live set of his music for the summer of 2018.
