Upcoming Parties

Behind the Ace Ventura project is Yoni Oshrat - one of Israels biggest talents in electronic music, with a career on top of the scene, stretching for over a decade. Already from an early age Yoni was heavily influenced with music.

He was born in a musical family with his father being a famous Israeli composer and song writer (for instance behind the Eurovision song "Halelujah"), and it was therefore no surprise that he went for a career in the sound-business; at first in the TV and movie-industry as a sound producer.

After discovering the blooming trance-scene in the beginning of the nineties, he started DJ'ing and teamed up with his friend DJ Goblin to form the psychedelic trance project Children Of The Doc, which later changed name to PSYSEX. Together they released 3 critically-acclaimed full length albums on HOMmega Productons, and played a big part in establishing Israel as one of the most important trance-countries on the globe.

After several years of intense touring, playing at some of the biggest parties and festivals worldwide, Yoni's taste moved more and more towards the slower, groovier side of music though, and from 2006 he took the decision to leave the Psysex project and form the two soloprojects SCHATSI and ACE VENTURA. With Schatsi he was quickly featured on labels like Hadshot and Mylo's Breastfed Recordings, and top DJ's like John Digweed played some of his material on numerous occasions. More attention was put into the Ace Ventura project though, and using a fusion of the hard, pumping dancefloor-oriented style from Psysex and the deeper, groovier influences of progressive trance, the Ace Ventura project became a big success, and in a matter of just a few releases, such as the now classic debut "Cardiac Arrest", he was already considered among the top producers on the progressive trance scene.

After appearing on releases on labels like Flow, Domo, Echoes, Blue Tunes, Spintwist, HOMmega and Iboga Records he finally released his debut solo album "Rebirth" in 2007, which was without a doubt one of the biggest releases of the year. It resulted in Ace Ventura winning the Psytrance category at the Beatport Music Awards in 2008. About one year later the album was followed by a remix album "Re:Boot", which contained two CD's with remixes by various progressive trance, house, electro house and techno artists. This release, together with the release of "The Spark", the summer anthem remix of FREq's "Short Life Again" as well as a collaborations with various artists - also resulted in Ace Ventura winning the Psytrance category at the Beatport Music Awards in 2009, For the second year in a row. Despite playing all around the globe, at major events from Boom in Portugal, XXXPerience, Tribe and Universo Paralello in Brazil, Solstice in Japan, Glade in the UK ,Ozora in Hungary to Indian Spirit, Tshitraka, Antaris and Full Moon in Germany, Yoni isn't resting on the laurels – Working on other projects such as EASY RIDERS – together with fellow friend and partner Roy Tilbor (aka Rocky) – as well as on the newborn project ZENTURA, together with Wouter Thomassesn (aka Zen Mechanics) and last but not least, on the longtime collaboration LIQUID ACE, together with Nicola Capobianco (aka Liquid soul).

Besides producing tracks for various labels, Yoni compiled a few successfull compilations, namely the "New order" series for HOMmega records, which was the first progressive release of the label, as well as "Digital beings" for Echoes records. Recently he compiled the double CD "Dance Computer" for Iboga records, which is now available on Psyshop & Beaport. These days final work is underway on the debut Easy riders album, to be released this year on HOMmega records, and of course on the long awaited 2nd Ace Ventura album, "paradise engineering" which was released in the summer of 2015.


Started as a techno Dj back in the late 90’s, playing raw pounding techno with vinyl, next to artists like Dj Rush, Claude Young and Marco Bailey. This Belgian born Dj was introduced in 2001 to the psychedelic and progressive scene, finding in this genre a new passion and inspiration. With a long list of important parties in his repertoire, this Dj has played in international festivals like Vuuv, Indian Spirit, Tshitraka, The Experience Koh Tao, Blackmoon Culture, The Jungle Experience, Tomorrowland, Wonderland and many others. His style range goes from tech/deep house to psychedelic progressive.

In 2004, R’Deem founded Purple Snow productions, an event production company based in Belgium. He has organized some of the most iconic parties in that genre and brought for the first time to the country artists like Son Kite, Neelix, Symphonix, Dj Fabio, D-Nox & Beckers and some of his most famous events included artists like Ace Ventura, Perfect Stranger and Ticon.
In 2017, he made a collaboration track, together with Thomas Moon and he is now ready to release an EP with new tracks of his own production.

Being slightly introverted there is a memorable and unique way in how he communicates emotions in his sets. Love, happiness but also anger and sadness are effortlessly represented in his performances.


Thomas Moon is a Dj and producer from Belgium, he started back in 1998 playing the music that he considers the basis of his heart and soul, psytrance. He started producing electronic music influenced by a big range of genres, from hard techno to classical music. By 2012, he evolved his musical inclination, starting new music developments and overlapping genres, creating a new club-style sound. This process revolutionized his musical drive exploring a more progressive side of music, that has lead him to produce since then 2 albums under the project name of Thomas Moon.

In his work, you can hear the influence of his travels and his musical journey. Through his various trips around Brazil, which he considers have played a big part influencing his sound, he discovered a melodic positive atmosphere full of emotion. You can see this influence in the first album he released in 2014 called Micro Science, which contains a track dedicated to his experience trekking into the Vale do Pati. In 2016, he released his second album, Combinatory Play, a collaboration album with many friends he made over the years.

As head of Naturall Productions, he has played in some of the most famous Belgian clubs and festivals like La Rocca, 45, Fuse, Cafe d’Anvers, Extrema Festival, Tomorrowland, Feestgedruis and has performed on many festivals across Europe, Israel and Brazil. With over 15 years of experience, he is eager to enter the club at all times and show his very personal style. The music he produces is always very personal, full of emotion, positive vibes and has an uplifting spirit. All you have to do is… dance.
