Marco Teixeira is the man behind the Elektrik Boy project. He felt a “strange” affection for this style, not only because of its sounds but also for the math represented in music. By the age of 16 he had his first serious encounter with music and started a band with a friend and continued to play in various bands for a while, until he started to experiment with electronic music by the turn of the century. By 2002 he started seeing some success with a live electronic act DiF_Fusion, a project including a bassist, a saxophonist, occasionally a drummer and himself on the guitars and synths, and after a CD release with Portuguese label Vensil Records, they performed all over Portugal.
It was only in 2007 that he decided to start producing psy trance and by 2010 he had cemented the Elektrik Boy act as a serious force for the future. He has gone on to release 5 EP’s and many singles on VA’s the world over. His sound is a fusion of throbbing beats, electrifying twists and turns, melodies, guitars and rhythm, and some PHAT BASS of course!
“The Final Frontier” is a well-known reference to the description of space, and the inevitable exploration thereof… Similarly it can used to describe our current cultural, spiritual & technological time, a time that has many rethinking the boundaries of what we believe to know. Subjects like scientific research into the human brain, the development of artificial intelligence, travelling through interdimensional space & the prospect of faster than light space travel are not just figments of some fictional scientific writer’s imagination anymore… The understanding and exploration thereof has begun in earnest, which could very well change the rules as we know it!!!
In the context of psychedelic music we see the very same natural occurrence, where the boundaries of creativity have been redefined, a constant evolution of new ideas. It has been a long time coming, but the sound of night time music is being rediscovered in ways that we have not imagined yet, new arrangements, new melodic structures, all with that familiar power that we have come to associate with this sub-genre of psychedelic beats… The future is yet to reveal all it holds, however the new frontier presents some amazing opportunities for the late night revelers!!!
