Dear friends, another summer has gone by and after many adventures in the fields we are preparing for another magical season of your favourite indoor festival! As you may have heard, following an intellectual property dispute earlier this year with The Synergy Centre, The Synergy Project has agreed to change its name to Luminopolis (meaning “city of light”). Although often confused due their similar names and shared roots, The Synergy Project and The Synergy Centre were always separate organisations – our name change simply reflects this and clears up the confusion – The Synergy Project is dead! Long live Luminopolis!!
However rest assured that nothing about the event itself will change other than for the good, and Luminopolis will still be organised by us, and many of the same production crews and collaborating organization that brought you The Synergy Project. We will continue to gather an ever growing community of creative and pro-active organizations involving musicians, producers, Djs, Vjs, performers, healers, organizers, activists, intellectuals, and forward thinking individuals, coming together to promote and support the work of NGO’s and charities, and hopefully inspire many to get involved in the ever growing movement for social and environmental regeneration.
The first two Luminopolis events will be on Friday the 3rd of October and Saturday the 22nd of November. Room hosts will include Small World Stage, Inspiral, Liquid Records, Fish Seeks Bicycle, Folktronica, Future Music, Furthur Project, Echo Systems, Blood Tribe Records, joined later on in the season by Bingly Bongly, Sangita Sounds, Tribe of Frog, Kundalini, Skandalous and many more!
Join us all on the 3rd of October to welcome this new chapter in conscious partying! =)

Blood Tribe Records!
Nagual Sound Experiment – ‘One Glove
Screenager vs. Stigmatrix – ‘Serious Music’
Following on from his critically acclaimed album ‘Invisible Movements’, released on Liquid Records last year, NSE returns with his first release on Blood Tribe, ‘One Glove’. A high octane psychedelic dubstep anthem guaranteed to brighten up even the darkest days of our British summer!
Built around tight bass line pressure, heavily gliitched out rhythms and old school hip hop chord progressions, producer Cameron Leonard-Schroff (AKA Psybreaks pioneer, Mood Deluxe) fuses all this with percolating, psy-infused melodies and dub samples, exploring his many heritages.
On the flip side, we introduce you the dark and twisted world of Screenager, who unleashes a master class in tense and highly charged atomic drop dubstep. Built around moody hip hop textures, Brighton based producer Mark Owens delivers a monster of a track, perfect for angst-ridden individuals intent on agitating their parents or housemates.

Available on Vinyl and Digital from the following online outlets:
Born from the desire to experiment with altering and expanding the sonic framework of Dubstep, Electro, Hip Hop, IDM and 2-Step, Blood Tribe represents artists that cross the boundaries that define musical genres, with a common theme of an unprecedented addiction to the manipulation of the lower frequencies…
