about

Astral Waves is Dj Zen aka Gabriel D. from Quebec, Canada.
Originally from France he moved to north America in 1996 with a full CD bag.
He was determined to meet party people from there to spin the music for which his heart beaten so hard: Goa trance.
Shortly after meeting organizers in Quebec, he spinned in after hours, clubs and raves all around the place.
He was also making backdrops to decorate places, hand painted t-shirts and always had a kiosk to sell a bunch of CD’s.
After having spinning for 4 years and organizing “Natura” wonderful parties with his brother, he settled up his first music studio in 1999 using Reason 1.0 and Acid 3 to make some remixes from some well known bands like Juno Reactor.

Retired from Montreal for 3 years, he went to Costa-Rica to play music and paint backdrops with Transelastica collective.
Then he got a kid and had time to set up Sunline Records and Digitalys Studios to start to make music and artwork for illustrating CD covers for Sunline Records and also for Kagdila, Suntrip, Peak and Avigmatic Records.

In 2005 he was working on his first album entitled "Mystique", learning techniques and tips from great artists such as Astrix and Nuclear Ramjet.
In 2006-2007 he played a few live acts at festivals with congas (percussion) and vocalist Ina layed her nice voice in the background.

In 2008 "Mystique" album saw the light of day.
