In the world of psychedelic trance, few artists have made an impact as profound as DJ Antinomy, real name Adir Sahar. Since his inception into the music scene in 2017, Antinomy has been a tour de force, reshaping the contours of psychedelic music with his innovative approach and mesmerizing tracks.
From Humble Beginnings to Psytrance Maestro
Antinomy’s journey into the realm of music is a testament to the power of passion and perseverance. With no formal musical background, his love for diverse music genres laid the foundation for his future career. His real attraction was always towards electronic music, ranging from New York House to Psychedelic Goa Trance. This eclectic mix of influences would eventually shape his unique sound in psytrance music.
His first major breakthrough came with the release of his EP “Life Beyond Earth,” which was warmly received by TechSafari Records. This release marked the beginning of a meteoric rise in the psytrance world.
A New Era in Psychedelic Progressive Scene
Antinomy’s entry into the scene was nothing short of spectacular. With his debut in 2017, he immediately caught the attention of both fans and veterans in the industry. His first releases, “Life Beyond Earth” and “Humans Evolution,” showcased not just his skill but a unique musical imagination that resonated with listeners and fellow artists alike. The early support from giants like Liquid Soul, Ace Ventura, and Astrix was both a source of pressure and motivation, pushing him to continually innovate and explore new musical territories.
Creating a State of Mind
Perhaps one of Antinomy’s most significant contributions to the psytrance genre is his debut album, “A State of Mind.” Released through Iboga Records and achieving the number one spot on Beatport, this album is a showcase of his soul’s expression through music. The album, featuring seven out of eight solo tracks, was created over three years, including a period where the COVID-19 pandemic had halted festivals and public gatherings. This period of isolation and global uncertainty did not deter Antinomy; instead, it fueled his creativity, leading to the creation of an album that resonates with the emotional and psychological states of its listeners.
A Shining Future
Antinomy’s ascent to the top tiers of psytrance is marked not only by his musical prowess but also by his ability to connect with major labels and artists. His partnership with Iboga Records, one of the biggest Psy-Trance labels, opened new doors and provided a platform for his music to reach a global audience. The support and belief from figures like Yoni Oshrat (Ace Ventura) and Mikael Dahlgaard (Dj Emok) were instrumental in his rise.
With the world recovering from the pandemic and public events resuming, Antinomy is poised to take his music to new heights. His plans include performing at renowned festivals such as the ‘Hilltop’ Festival in Goa, ‘Boom’ Festival in Portugal, ‘Atmosphere’ in Mexico, ‘Indian Spirit’ in Germany, and more. Additionally, he has teased the release of new collaborations and surprises, indicating a bright and eventful future ahead.
Antinomy’s story is not just about music; it’s about the relentless pursuit of a passion, the resilience to overcome challenges, and the ability to transform dreams into reality. His journey from a music enthusiast with no formal training to a celebrated figure in the psytrance scene is a source of inspiration.
