Melodic Goa Trance

Nebula Meltdown is Kristian Aro, an electronic music wizard from Helsinki, Finland.

He has a long musical background, listening to classical music since he was very young and playing the piano for many years. He got interested in electronic music when he was 12 years old, finding his way into psychedelic trance and various psychedelic downtempo after going through many styles of electronic music. After dreaming of composing for a few years he started to make his own tunes in 2000 and is still on the same road. He has created many different styles of music from soaring UK-style psytrance to oldschool-influenced Goatrance to soothing downtempo and psybient. He is very precise in having a red line to follow throughout his tracks an Dj-sets, taking the listener into places and is always fine-tuning his music with careful precision.

During the years he has made some memorable trance events in Finland and travelled across Europe, Russia, performing over 150 gigs during the last 5 years alone in both indoor and outdoor events, his most notable gig being at Boom Festival in 2014.

In 2009 he became a label dj for the famous Belgian goa-trance label Suntrip Records and released his first full-length album "Stardust Chronicles" there. Riding on the globally expanding and increasingly popular wave of psychedelic trance he is always perfecting his sound and skills as a Dj, combining various styles together in the furnace of the Universal Consciousness.
