Etnica are Ibiza-based Milanese duo Max Lanfranconi and Maurizio Begotti.
Electronic music producers extraordinaire, Etnica, have pioneered the global phenomenon that is psychedelic trance since the late 80’s as doyens and undisputed innovators, trail-blazing the planet with their charismatic live performances as constant favourites on international line-ups at all of the world’s top events.
They are among the most acclaimed artists of their kind, with a growing legion of fans that span the entire planet, devotedly following them since the glorious Acid House days. Quintessentially Mediterranean yet utterly universal, the romantic and evocative allure of their sci-fi imbued compositions have rippled out through the years, inspiring many an artist and forging, during the ‘golden era’ of ‘Goa’ Trance, what would become the blueprint for this legendary musical genre.
ETNICA has given us an imposing array of classics starting from their debut album ‘The Juggling Alchemist Under the Blacklight’ and their sophomore album ‘Alien Protein’, which set the tone for the illustrious sequence of 7 artist albums up until present day. Their countless hit singles feature on all of the best labels (including Spirit Zone, Blue Room Released, Dragonfly, Flying Rhinoq , Solstice Music, and Neurobiotic to name only a few) and legendary hits such as TRIPTONITE and VIMANA have endlessly been remixed by admiring artists all over the world, throughout the years.
With their record label ETNICANET they are responsible for igniting new scenes in some of today’s festival and clubbing hot spots such as South Africa (South Africa 2000 Millennium Festival and the 2002 Solar Eclipse Festival), Venezuela (1996 Eclipse Festival), Brazil (Celebra Brasil 2001, 2002, and 2003 editions, the first of which was the first ever festival of its kind in the continent), and much more. In 2010 Etnica inaugurated their new state-of-the-art recording facilities: SOUNDFARM Studios in Ibiza
