Thank you Ital for making this interview with Phanganist.
We appriziate your music and are happy to share your story with our audience!
Please tell us your Koh Phangan story?
"Well, Koh Phangan is a surely a special place that we really Love and feel at home at.
We also have a good connection with a Thai family here and we have many friends around the island.
It is more than an amazing place to meet new friends! So many nice people around here. This is a magic island for sure!!"
"We have always been connected with our Moon.
She guides us in the night as the Sun guides us during the day in this time in this process of life.
For me, Blackmoon Culture is the best Psytrance party that you can find on Phangan.
It is a special night to celebrate with family and friends.
A great night of dancing on the amazing beach at The Mac Bay resort. where Black Moon is kicking of once a month."
"I hope one day also to be invited to participate at Halfmoon Festival, this would also be really great!
The next party on Phangan will be an Antu Records Label Party in Ban Sabaii this 19th January for Halfmoon festival after party."
The best things in Dani's Life is Art and Music!

For Phangan I brought lots of new music made by Ital.
Also some from my new project with my friend Pedrao from Brasil called The Big Bang Live, that we will release in april 2013 when I will be back in South America.
I also brought from tracks from friends from Vagalume, Nano, Alchemy, Grasshopper, 24/7 and many other labels for sure."
Dani can chillout with a bit of Reggae!
Otherwise it can be all kinds of Chillout and relaxing music.
Indian and worldmusic from all over there world. He enjoys to chill with relaxing sounds when at home or travelling and use this as a good inspirations source too.
"I get most of my inspiration from my family, my love Coni, friends, my home in the mountains and the most important thing; our nature that surround us !
Of course to travel around the world is a big influence of the substance that what we can chanalize through the Art."

Phanganist asked Dani if he thought to come back to Phangan and play for us again? His answer to this was: "For sure!! It will always be a big pleasure to be back and meet our Thai family and friends around on this magic island."
If he had the chance to be his own mother for a second, which we gave him ofcourse, he would remind himself/herself to be proud of her son!
