HydraMorph a.k.a Anarchia another project from Axis Mundi Project – Batuhan Guven
Batuhan Guven aka HydraMorph aka Anarchia started his musical career during high school ages. He got interested in art at the same time. After finishing the school in 2009, he started to work within many different art concepts. He set up his own workshop in 2009-10 while working for F5 Productions as a VJ and art assistant in Istanbul, Turkey. Meanwhile, he was in a close relationship with Pixie Underground and through there he had chance to focus on the music genre he liked which was D&B – Dub. Having a brief experience, he started DJing on this genre. When he was at university, he improved himself at many interactive art fields and VJing. As a result he had chance to work for many local and international art productions as a VJ and artist. During this period he also started to organise interactive art events and galleries under the name of ‘Axis Mundi Project’.
Even if he had interest into psychedelic art before then, he started working on it at Tree Of Life Festival in 2013 by setting up a Psy-Cinema just like he started playing psytrance at Freaks In Love Festival in 2014. Other than these festivals he also did VJing & DJing and worked at art teams at ‘Ayata, Neon, Psy-Boutique Festivals’ and many more events in Turkey since 2013, as well as many events in Goa.
In February 2015, Batuhan Guven & Onur Kalafat created the first Psychedelic Art Gallery of Turkey with the same name, aiming to put many different art groups together and they did many times. With the same purpose they organised the first psychedelic art festival of the country; CO:IN Festival in 2016.
Axis Mundi is Batuhan`s Dub & Psyprog DJ project. He created a dark twilight DJ project as a second; HydraMorph a.k.a Anarchia ; linked to Annuna Records in Goa in 2016. Nowadays he is also a resident DJ at Crystal Kids in Istanbul, Turkey.
