Artists bio:

A Project Headed towards Infinity all are welcome to join......The project is Bishal a.k.a Satish and his wife Susan supported by all of their friends and family From the outskirts of Kathmandu valley ...a little hilltop town called Kirtipur in NEPAL " The land of mystics". After his Lucid Sonic Hyper Dimensional meetings with the techno shaman Goa Gil and his wife Ariane his whole life took on a new meaning and a new found glory of living to the will of Existence. Heavily into the Dark side of the musical Realm exploring different dimension of Death metal and the likes he played with various local Metal bands as vocalist and guitarist from the early nineties and literally lived the sex, drugs and rock n roll lifestyle and survived. After his Cosmic Dance with the Ferocious DArk Deities he got his showering of liquid ecstasy and visions for his Project "Smoking Shiva". His Ultimate Sacrifice for Un-sanity(Beyond Sanity) was the consumption of 159 pieces of local road side Belladum seeds which took him to the Baba Koteshwor Mahadev. He is crazy as hell and his frequency from the Dark side of the Existence provokes the hidden energy from the Kunda within all living beings giving U the Ultimate Reality Check. 
He may not be your so called technically Proficient Dj or producer but he believes his Craft to be not that of practice but that of letting go and letting the Spirit take over and merging the unconcious of his fellow Humans with the Void from where all life seems to Manifest.
