Portland Or, United States
Residing deep in the Weeeerd near Portland Or, Ian McIntosh aka DeafChild has been a staple of the left coast underground music community going on 16 years now. Working tirelessly to promote forward thinking and intelligent dance music for the discerning psychedelic adventurer, his talents have seen him performing at some of the most memorable events in the North American underground. From the mountains of NW Wa and Or, into the jungles of Mexico, the beaches of Hawaii and Belize, all the way to some of the largest stages at Burningman and everywhere in between. Having developed a style that straddles the hard to define spaces between acid, techno and psytrance, his sound has provided the vehicle of energy needed to become that rare successful crossover artist between the left coast's house/techno and psytrance communities. A dj born of the dance floor with his heart still firmly rooted in the belief that music is the most powerful healing force on our beautiful planet.
