Mario Garrett also known as Acid Trooper is one of the young new age talents from Portugal. He was born in 1990, and as a child showed great interest and love for music, melodies and other rhythmical elements. Naturally at some point the performance bug bit, and in 2003, he started playing DJ sets at local parties and started honing his skills even further. In 2005, he took the challenge up and started producing his own music and over the next 5 years he sharpened his skill set on an entirely new level, gaining a much deeper understanding of what makes a dance floor move and being able to manipulate that flow with the technology of the time… In so doing, he has created a unique and aggressive danceable flow for the night time hours or the very early morning hours as night turns to day, a transmission of powerful emotional energy…
One of his big goals was reached in 2010 when he founded the label Free Minds Records, aiming to bring some of the good local Portuguese and international unsigned talent to the forefront, a goal still at the center of Mario’s work in his home country and something he aims to continue well into the future, so keep an eye out for this young man, he certainly has some surprises in store for the future!!!
OM NAMAH SHIVAYA – The mantra’s mystical or more esoteric meaning is multi-leveled and quite complex. It is a panchaskara mantra, meaning it’s made up of five syllables or literally the five holy letters (na – mah – shi – vaa – ya). It is preceded by Om or Aum, which is said to be the sacred primordial sound. Sivaya is among the foremost Vedic mantras. It means “adoration to Siva”. Within its celestial tones and hues resides all of the intuitive knowledge of Saivism. Sivaya is the most holy name of God Siva, recorded at the very center of the Vedas and elaborated in the Saiva Agamas. Na is the Lord’s concealing grace, Ma is the world, Si stands for Siva, Va is His revealing grace, Ya is the soul. The five elements, too, are embodied in this ancient formula for invocation: Na is earth, Ma is water, Si is fire, Va is air, and Ya is ether, or akasa. Many are its meanings. Sivaya quells the instinct, cuts through the steel bands and turns this intellect within and on itself, to face itself and see its ignorance.
Sages declare that mantra is life, that mantra is action, that mantra is love and that the repetition of mantra, japa, bursts forth wisdom from within. God Siva dances His dance of creation, preservation and dissolution within the five elements. Sivaya holds the secret of transformation, a power so perfect it can turn the instinctive nature toward super-consciousness.
