Daniel is a true lover of the psychedelic sound, having discovered it in 2008 in his hometown of Melbourne, he furthered his interests in the scenes that surround Cairns and fill NSW northern rivers
Spending long, hard hours perfecting his own distinctive style, Kryptik creates a sound that fuses beefy progressive qualities with solid nighttime and daybreak bass lines. Though heavily influenced by the lively styles of trance originating from Byron Bay, Kryptik and Kinetik Drop bridge the gap between progressive and full on psy-trance varieties, approaching psychedelic music from a classically Australian yet unique angle.
Kryptik and Kinetik Drop are the loyal hometown acts of Solar Records, through which Daniel has released his Rewire EP (Kryptik) and Kosmic Nature EP (Kinetik Drop) and also featured on their acclaimed Mayan Prophesy VA. Independently through Bandcamp, Kryptik released Archive, which included some of his official remixes of Ace Ventura, Raz, Sensual Squeak, Slytrance and Legacy. Kryptik also has upcoming releases on Up Records and Solarrecords.
Daniel has supported some of the biggest names in the international psychedelic scene including Neelix,Zen Mechanics, Timelock,Fender Bender, Hedflux, Rinkadink, Logica, Hydraglyph, Interpulse, Tetrameth, Twilight, Sensient, Unseen Dimensions and Terrafractyl. Often playing alongside revered Australian psy-trance artists such as Positive Thought, Creten, Mult1verse, Twilight, One Tasty Morsel, Bigfoot and Reactant.
The driving energy of the Kryptik sound has been heard all over the east coast of Australia, moving into Asia and The Pacific. His most notable appearances so far being Solar Eclipse Festival, REGEN Regrowth Festival, New Psycle, Peats Ridge Festival, Psyfari, Collaboration Festival, Soliton Drop, Mayan Prophecy (Solar Records), Inner Peace (Solar Records), Dragon Dreaming (New Caledonia), Luminate Festival (New Zealand), Wake Up (New Caledonia) and Beyond Spirit Festival (India).
