Lucid States

Exploring sounds from across the genre spectrum with a focus on all things psychedelic, meditative, introspective and melodious. Reaching for Lucid States with Erbium Records & Voyage Events co-founder Trieste at the helm.

Beyond his work as a performing artist & producer he’s also shaped a number of other successful projects. His event brand Voyage Events has brought unique live shows and DJ sets to cities across the UK, working with artists like HAAi, Zaltan, Leo Pol, Nu Guinea and Daniel Avery, while label project Erbium Records presents a broad range of music styles expressed through tailored audio-visual concepts.

As a club and festival DJ Trieste has also played shows across the UK and Europe, supporting the likes of Young Marco, Bonobo, Craigie Knowes, Cinthie, Mala, Confidence Man and Follakzoid among others. When not on the move, you can find the Birmingham based artist playing regular resident slots at timeless venue The Hare & Hounds Kings Heath, or live on the airways through his monthly Lucid States show, right here on Melodic Distraction.

This month Trieste takes us on a trip through ambient soundscapes, instrumental melodies and downtempo psych / shoegaze, plus a sneak preview of some brand new (forthcoming) Erbium Records releases!
