Biography: Mirza Aljić (Arronax) is one of the earliest Goa Trance producers in Bosnia & Herzegovina. He was born in 1987 and his first steps into the world of electronic music were made during the days in primary school.
In the very beginning, with the breakthrough of VST technology & DAWs, he was experimenting with various instruments and sounds recorded in his improvised home studio. Inspired by a great band, The Prodigy, Mirza was producing some heavier electronic stuff at the time, however none of it was a release material. Sometimes in 2002 he confronted the style of Psychedelic Trance. The moments when he first heard Astral Projection’s “Soundform” and “Mahadeva”, Shakta’s “Lepton Head” and “Silicon Trip”, were the moments of utmost significance for his musical orientation. Amazed by the beauty and complexity of trance music, Mirza has set off on a long journey, a journey where he would find a new meaning and purpose of music in his life.
Even today, artists like Shakta, Man With No Name, Pleiadians and Etnica remain his main influence in Goa trance music. While trying to keep the old spirit of Goa music alive, Arronax also introduces production techniques and complexity of the new Goa Trance era in his own and unique way.
Influences: Many different and totally not related music genres and styles influenced the choice of Arronax’s musical performance.
