Biography

It was Acid House in 1988 that got Joti hooked on electronic dance music. It was also the same year that he started djing in bars and clubs around Brighton in the UK at the tender age of 17.

Acid house led onto the techno scene and shortly after that in 1993 Goa Trance, where he would be the producer and engineer of Ayahuasca alongside Steve Ronan and Dino Psaras where the tracks were written at Joti’s studio in Brighton.

The first releases of Ayahuasca was on A Concept in Dance, on XL Records, one of the first Psytrance compilations. Ayahuasca also released on Dragonfly Records and followed up these releases with a remix of Paul Oakenfolds “Rise” on Perfecto Records

In 1994 he stared his own solo project, Psychaos that would go on to become a successful influence on the Goa scene and the developing Psy-Trance scene that followed it. The first legendary release Psychaos “Psychaos” was on the second Concept in Dance compliation Tribal Science released in 1995.

This was when his sound and Psychaos became extremely popular around the globe playing at weird and wonderful places from Guadeloupe, French Caribbean, to Nevada Deserts “The Burning Man Festival”, from Castles in France and Yugoslavia, Ancient Ruins in Greece, Mount Fuji in Japan, the Australian Outback to Expo Portugal in Lisbon, Summer ski resorts in the mountains of Switzerland to the clubby well trodden winter circuits of Europe and quite a few places and festivals in between.

In 1998 Joti released his first solo album Psychaos Cause and Effect” on Atomic records.

After the closing of Atomic Records in late 2002, Joti “put himself back to school”, redefined his sound and techniques and decided to create with his given name Joti Sidhu.

His 4th album Order to Chaos released in 2010 saw Joti returning to his techno roots and branching out in experimental psytech themes and collaborations.
