It all started when…

Cristopher Alvarez was born in Costa Rica in 1985 begun at the age 17 finding himself interested into Psychedelic trance music. He started in the psytrance scene around 2005 assisting to local psytrance parties and got very interested about and the psychedelic music, then he started to promote events with a few friends at 2008 behind the ISOTROPIC SOUNDS crew name getting very involved with his feelings for the music. By 2008 the crew changed the focus to psychedelic music production and he started to feel the need of getting into the psychedelic music world. He started making his own sounds and experimenting with synths, so began his own musical project named Xhamanik Ritual. Darkpsy and High Tech are considered as the main psychedelic music influences so he describes his style as a mix weird creepy melodies, glitch textures, aggressive leads and morphing atmosphere with music between 148 - 190 BPM.
