'Cactus Arising' is the Goa Trance project of two friends from Greece...
... sharing the same interest in music. The members are Mike Loizos and Steve Tzokas.
They started listening this music in mid of the 90's. Their interest of listening Goa Trance music became their passion to produce that kind of music. These became real when they bought their first synthesizer.
After some time in experimenting with sound they achieved to produce their sound. The main influences were Etnica, Hallucinogen, Mfg, Transwave, California Sunshine, Dimension 5, Filteria and many more artists that produce melodic music.
The project became active in 2011 when they have collected enough experience in collaborating with each other.
