Protonica are renowned as one of the world's leading psytrance duos, and
their emotive psychedelic soundscapes echo through the scene with deep
resonance, leaving their mark on all who have experienced their soulful,

'Symmetry' features two phenomenal collaborations with Liquid Soul and
Ticon, a beautifully polished remix to the Captain Hook & Ace Ventura
classic 'E.B.E', and a remix for Atmos' legendary track 'The Only Process',
closing off the journey with a deep chillout track featuring ethereal
vocals by Irina Mikhailova.
The year was 1997, and the great tree of electronic dance music continued to expand and split into various branches and their native tribes. Psychedelic trance was in full swing, with its staccato kick drums, high BPMs, and consciousness-expanding synth patterns. To some, it was more than a music style - it represented a way of life. Thus it was for Emok and Banel, two young Danish DJ/producers who fully leaned in and came together in Copenhagen to establish what would become one of the longest lasting and most universally respected labels in the psy-trance underground. Ace Ventura, Liquid Soul, Captain Hook, just some of the superstars of the scene that have been loyal mainstays on the label's release calendar over the years, but never detracting from the label's ethos of developing new artists through unity, collaboration, and steadfast support. In 2022, Emok and Banel still wake up every day thinking about their core values of connection, passion and ultimately a zest for life. And of course: heart-racing, foot-stomping, and mind-expanding beats!
