Jasper Vallance is a regional burner, the co-creator of the burning seed theme camp "sunset island", and also the co-founder of Xstatic Sunsets - an events management group aimed at organising sober dance parties around Sydney, Australia. In this episode we sit down with Jasper to talk about his burning seed and sunset island journey that has inspired him to create an environment for revellers who wants an alternative to the endemic alcohol and drug culture. We also venture into the sober dance parties and the natural chemical highs that Jasper is promoting at his gatherings which has garnered some media attention and an ABC article piece. Our music segment for this episode is supplied by 'Obvious Fox' with their original track called "Scotty" - a catchy tune about the recent social-political landscape in Australia.
