604-ToKaY - a Introduction

604-T

604-TOKAY a.k.a. HaNs(i) is a Psy and Goa Trance Producer, born and resident in Roermond, Netherlands. His Music is like a Fractal Story. Chaotic and Distorted, yet flows like Water.

Starting in music in the late 80's and played in some local bands. First as a Funky Guitarist but after two years switching to the Keyboards.

What inspired TokaY was the time he spend living in Indonesia. "TokaY" is the sound of Indonesia, everywhere you stay, until late in the evening you can hear that sound. It's the voice of the gecko. Living high in the trees. It's just like they speak to each other. Question and answer, just like the old jazz music, instruments that communicate with each other. Once you been sleeping in that quit little kampung (village), you will never forget it the rest of your life and sometimes sitting at a peaceful place you will remember and mumble "Tokay" in your imagination.

Goa Trance

GoA - Psy Trance Goa trance (often referred to as Goa or by the number 604 - G = 6, O = 0, A = 4) is a form of electronic music and is a style of trance music. It originated in the late 1980s and early 1990s in the Indian state of Goa and is distinctive, as most forms of trance music were developed in Europe. Goa trance enjoyed the great part of its success from around 1994 - 1998. Goa trance is closely related to the emergence of psytrance during the latter half of the 1990s and early 2000s, where the two genres mixed together. In popular culture, the distinction between the two genres remains largely a matter of opinion (they are considered by some to be synonymous; others say that psytrance is more 'metallic' and that Goa trance is more 'organic'
