Tristan is a psychedelic trance DJ/producer from England whose affiliation with Twisted Records spanned a decade. Born Tristan Cooke, he grew interested in electronic dance music while traveling throughout Asia; in particular, he spent some time in Goa, where he experienced the psychedelic trance beach parties for which the Indian island is renowned. His interest in electronic dance music continued upon his return to England, and before long, he bought himself a pair of turntables and began spinning records. He and his friends then began hosting dance parties anywhere they could, and these parties led to an early-'90s residency at the Q Club in Birmingham. Meanwhile, Tristan began producing his own music in 1993 and made his recording debut on the Matsuri Productions label in 1995. Over the next couple years, he released his music on a number of other labels, including Aquatec Records, 21-3 Records, and Flying Rhino Records, before making his Twisted Records debut in 1998 with the Inside Out EP. Tristan remained affiliated with Twisted Records for the following decade, releasing two studio albums (Audiodrome, 1999; Substance, 2002) and a mix album (Twisted Sessions, Vol. 1, 2002), in addition to further 12" EPs. In 2007 he switched to Nano Records for his third studio album, Chemisphere. Tristan's DJ and live performances took him around the world, where he performed at most major psychedelic trance festivals one year or another, along with mainstream dance festivals such as Glastonbury. ~ Jason Birchmeier
