Unwashed Tomato (Philadelphia) [Unwashed Records, 2 to 6 Records, D-A-R-K Records] - Unwashed Tomato is a collaborative psytrance production initiative started by Andy Ayrd and David Mostoller in late 2006. Our main focus is creating an intensely psychedelic, groovy experience which is at once quirky and powerful, containing motifs from many musical traditions. We enjoy nuanced composition, funky rhythms, and slamming grooves, composed of hard-hitting deep kicks, heavy leads, intricate atmospheres, and ripping basslines. Close attention is given to producing a complex yet cohesive sound while maintaining a clean and dynamic mix. Since the summer of 2008, the project has expanded to include frequent appearances by Rod O'Connor, whose unique sensibilities have contributed new elements to the project.

The Oracle (Buffalo) [Dharma Lab] - "Two crusty-ass belt driven Gemini’s and some tech & trance records, all from my brother. That’s how it started back in 1998 in my basement in Buffalo, NY. I’ve always been an avid listener of music, and was the guy handing out mix tapes to folks in school, cause they needed to hear it. Just last week a friend told me they found a CD I gave them almost 10 years ago, and the music on it is still great. It’s that connection with music that ultimately led to many connections with people.
I’ve played with, and opened up for, all sorts of talent over the last 10 years- local, regional, and international. But rather than the big names on the flyer as a sign of success, I believe the moments I’ve shared, and the connections made with other people are what I take the most pride in. What good does playing the same stage with Hipp-E & Halo, Atomic Babies, or Analog Pussy do if I’m not immersing myself with the atmosphere and feeling of the crowd; what everyone else is hearing and feeling. When I perform, sometimes I find myself guiding the room, and sometimes I find myself merely reflecting what the room has created itself. It’s the people that make it special.
Things definitely took an unexpected turn when I started playing together with a keyboard player named Chris Battaglia. Since 2002, we’ve been playing together as ‘Dharma Lab’, and it’s been one of the most important and fulfilling experiments of my life. After playing all sorts of house music together, I think we really tapped into something really unique when we started playing PsyTrance. It pulled a new side out of each of us, and continues to do so to this day!"
