Dirge is the twilight psytrance project of Melbourne born Mike O’Shea – for 2 years now he has pushed the sound of the world’s best tune operators, spreading the twilight message one dance floor at a time.

Attracted initially to the trance-inducing and energy-inspiring elements of full-on psytrance artists such as Space Tribe; Electric Universe and Laughing Buddha, Mike quickly found his niche in
the South African and Mexican styles of night-time full-on.

Having grown up listening to melodic and symphonic metal for most of his life, the transition into the heavier and darker spectrum of psytrance was seamless.

A ‘dirge’ is defined as a lament for the dead; a mournful song, piece of music or sound..
Encapsulating the essence of our shadow and encouraging us to face the darkness that we spend much of our lives running from, night-time psytrance has an important role to play in the evolution of man.
When we confront our dark side and learn to harmonize and work with it, we return to a true understanding of self and a transformative mental process begins.

Time stands still – we die and are reborn.

The idea behind Dirge is simple – to promote self-awareness, self-development and self-discipline through the power of trance-dance.

Through the power of Kaos we will all grow together.
