Ludus Vega is the psytrance project and DJ name of Jonathan Snyder. Jon has been mixing psytrance for about three years and has been involved with music production in various forms for over ten. Raised on healthy doses of punk, art-rock, bluegrass, and jazz, music has been a large part of his life since a very young age. Jon began learning to record bands in high school and went on to pursue life as a recording engineer, a path which eventually led to him obtaining a degree in Electrical Engineering. It was during the time of wrapping up his degree at the university that he began to develop an interest in electronic music. During a summer music festival, with a bit of luck, Jon accidentally found himself listening to the funky-chunky rumble-rumble of psytrance. His introduction to the world of psytrance began with full-on and progressive. Through the last few years and with much inspiration from west coast psy parties, Jon has developed a passion for forest, hitech, and experimental psytrance. Ludus Vega strives to tell or create a story with each DJ set, while listening to the energy of the space and the dancefloor and adapting to the musical needs of the environment.
