TALAMASCA is a solo project from Cedric Dassulle , a French dj who began to play in Paris in psytrance parties around 1992. The psytrance scene is not as powerful in France as it is in some other parts of the world where it is the mainstream music, like Brazil, Japan, or Israel.
That’s why Talamasca, also known as dj Lestat, began in 1994 to travel around the world more than he played in his own country.
In 1996, he decided to make his own project, under the name of talamasca, and first released on an Israeli label called “krembo records”. With the big success of his music, Talamasca was suddenly playing much more live acts than dj sets, and began to be considered as one of the leaders of the international trance scene. He decided to create in 1998 his own label called 3D Vision, which became quickly one of the leading labels of this style of music.
Nowadays, Talamasca is one of the most requested live acts in all big festivals such as full-moon festival, Samothraki or the boom festival in Europe, Eclipse, the biggest electronic festival of Canada, in the Chemical sound festival in Rio, in the Goa sound festival in Mexico, in summer arcade Fuji festival in Japan, and of course many more.
Talamasca has just opened in 2004 his new label, called “mind control records”, based in Paris, and is now working on his 5th album, expected for December 2005.
Talamasca has performed in the following countries: Brazil, Mexico, Israel, Japan, Germany, Portugal, Greece, Serbia, Macedonia, United States of America, England, Austria, Australia, India, Taiwan, Italy, Morocco, Turkey, Belgium, Netherlands, Costa Rica, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Cyprus, Russia, Hungary, and Argentina, for now.
Talamasca released a double album in 2007, “OBSESSIVE DREAM”, and after the BIG success of this album, he is now making a collaboration album with the band called XSI. This album is expected for april 2009…
