An artist I truly admire, expressing his heart through his music – Cocodrilo from Mexico.
After a discussion with Israel Holon Hisrav he inspired me to compose this writeup, not only as an interesting past, but an inspiration to upcoming artists and music lovers.
He started his way into the music around the year 2001 when he attended a local party where Tower Record DJs performed. One of them played psychedelic trance so since that day it became a passion and a lifestyle.
“After that day I started to become a music collector and immediately my best friend had time to buy a booth to play. It was there that I learned to mix electronic music at that time progressive house and trance. In 2003 I started working with a French label – Mandala Records and later meet Dj Dende and be part of Catalyst Records around 2006 where I could collaborate for the growth of the label by placing it on the scene plane. By this time I worked under the name of DJ Hisrav, playing DJ sets and it was during the year of 2007 when I started with the project called “In Lak Ech” next to my partner in crime, Haffman. I have achieved internationalization since 2012 playing in festivals such as Hadra Trance Festival (France), Aho Festival (Brazil), Modem Festival l & ll, (Croatia) Ometeotl Festival (Mexico), Goa Dupa Festival (Poland), Sonica Festival (Italy), Free Earth Festival (Greece), Poison Festival (Mexico), Freqs of Nature Festival (Germany), Blackmoon Festival (Italy) among others.”
Their style is unique within the Psychedelic trance scene and has matured to the passage of auditory and personal experiences over the years.
In 2012 he decided to create the first of his solo projects called Holon after maturing his own sound over the years on the project “In Lak Ech.” Conformed with a hypnotic line of trance music – Insistent, twisted, crispy, full of witchcraft and especially very psychedelic.
He recently signed on SquareLab Music based in France, so after a decade of work and synchronization with trance music, he decided to dive into the depths of time and create a dominant, aggressive and predatory sound with the project called “Cocodrilo.”
At the end, you will become a rapt prey, submerging into the depths of a psychedelic swamp of emotions.
“In 2018 I decided to found New Skulls Records based in Mexico after working and giving production courses for 5 years, and enrolling in the world of education, realizing it is one of the most satisfying activities I have ever experienced.”
This is how my vision was born, which was to form a group of skulls that evolve over time and that are determined to share their message through music.
In 2017, he decided to create his last project called Conami Kode next to Seggae with a more acid touch than the previous ones. He is currently concentrating on the label and in his 4 projects apart from being an active promoter of new musical talents.
