After years and years of loving music and listening to a whole different range, Rex-Rated (aka Jonny) finally found psy trance… “it’s been my total love over the last 7 years and I’ve danced my little socks off like a ex-rated t-rex”. He’s new to dj-ing but is going to be warming up the Sunday with some squelchy, downtempo but super funky psy trance. “This is going to be my first set out so come and shake those little arms and long tails and let’s warm up the Sunday vibes together”.
Welcome to Mad Hatters’ Jonny! Join us on the dance floor for some Rex-Rated moves!!
At a very young age OM Wizard (aka Tiago Mendes) always had interest in music, but only after he went to his first PsyTrance Festival in 2011 did he find his soul sound.

Sharing the stages with some of the best acts known as Perplex, Last Call, Pultec, Shifter Senses, Dj Psykinetic, Creatrix, OtherLife, Mono Sapiens, BreadSauce, Bumble plus many more..

Messyfish has been on the underground music scene for around 20 years, gracing the decks at many parties and festivals throughout the country. But those who know Coddy will know him from the Naughty N Nice parties back in the day.
“It has taken me around 15 years to find out where my heart really lies in music and I finally found it in full-on PsyTrance! This I believe will be my 5th year playing for the Mad Hatters- a band of very lovable rogues!”
Thank you Coddy – we are looking forward to having you back in the Mad Hatters’ Dance tent for Cosmic Puffin 11!

Multiseed (Trick Music) is the manifested synergy between Oni Freeman and Mark Shipman; two creative and versatile psychedelic DJs and décor artists, based in the UK. Their musical journey spans over 25 years, both having recognized very early in life that the universe would conspire to bring their individual and aspirational dreams to fruition.
The subsequent years has seen their creative energies developed and channeled through many different genre incarnations and locations, both individually and collaboratively. Through extremely fortunate circumstance, luck and synchronicity the two good friends played their first set together at the Shore Bar in Goa, 2011, and they were humbled and inspired by the ineffable magic of the trip. Their music has been described as cheeky twisted, uplifting, high energy, their versatility of style within the genre-bridging night into morning, from deep and uplifting Goa sounds to forest and twilight trance. Multiseed are always seeking to induce a raised collective consciousness on the dancefloor, expanding minds all over the multiverse.
Woo hoo! Sounds psychodelicious to us Mad Hatters and we are very excited to welcome Multiseed back to Cosmic Puffin 11!

Sarah (aka PsyRah) was one of the founder members of Norfolk’s Naughty N Nice soundsystem, and we are delighted that she can now be seen and heard behind the decks as their latest DJ!
PsyRah plays Psytrance which is her main passion in music and her first set out was on New Year’s Eve at the drop of a hat – but awesome none the less. Sarah tells us “my goal was to play at Cosmic Puffin 10 (2017) in the Mad Hatters Dance Tent”. Her goal was realised and we are happy to say that Psy Rah is back by popular demand and will be rocking it for Cosmic Puffin 11.

Gino has been an integral part of the East Anglian Dance scene since the early ’90s, he is a DJ who has been filling floors, fields and forests making you dance your coats off since 1994… He threw his first party in a building he squatted and never looked back, getting involved with Trance Zone and being invited to play with Suspect Sound System. Gino also became a brother of the mighty Vega Sound System, throwing FREE parties week in week, week out, year in, year out, providing a soundtrack of full-on techno to keep you dancing ’til dawn.
In recent years Gino has become part of the Maui Waui festival crew, involved in the team running The Crime Scene- their dance tent- where he is also a resident, playing techno. A DJ in the true sense, continuing to buy and play vinyl (often the first to play brand new releases in East Anglia) using two turntables and a mixer as instruments in their own right…no auto sync here!
Playing techno new and old, Gino has come to rock your soul… we can’t wait to have a Mad Hatter stomp to Gino again this year!
