Artist's own bio:  

Radioactive.Cake, Zeitgeist, Munstrous, Dark Passenger…that’s all Robert H. from Berlin Germany. Not only music producers and performer for many years, he also established the music label Glitchy.Tonic.Records in September 2009, which is now one of the leading forces in the "Alternative Psytrance Trance" - or what's often refered to as Dark Prog or Zenonesque. 

Taking the first musical steps around the time of the millennium, his skills and technique and productions were constantly evolving and advancing over the years. In late 2008 he felt he finally reached the quality to go way more professional. He brought Radioactive.Cake and Zeitgeist to life, aiming for releases and gigs and of course for good feedback. Getting all three, he soon wanted another challenge or rather more ways of expressing his musical creativity and he started Munstrous and Dark Passenger.

Today, Robert can look back on an extremely long list of releases and has gained quite some experience performing his stuff live. He played his projects at Festivals like Freqs Of Nature, Lost Theory Festival, Boom Festival, Solaris Festival, Cosmo Festival, Transylvania Calling, Pandemonium Festival, SpaceCamp Psyfari Festival and many others.

With his 4 music music projects, Robert has released 8 albums so far, CD and digital format, and dozens of single tracks. Might check the Releases section if you're interested in what is available where and how.

Number 9 and new Zeitgeist album "tasteless - pointless - Significant!" is getting released in May 2015.

After his Lucid Sonic Hyper Dimensional(read in his dream) 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 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". 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.

Back to Goa - Para Halu (Ozora 2012)

A special treat for the listeners of the show….a recording of a producer set from the legendary Para Halu (Adam Hohmann), performed live at this years Ozora fest.  

These are all brand new and as yet unreleased tracks from Adam weaved together into a no-nonsense high energy electro-funk-adelic soup!! 


Track listing:

Not yet available (new production material) - Para Halu

Artists bio:

The man behind Para Halu is Adam Hohmann from Hungary – a multi-talented musician and producer who, since his very young age has been always enchanted by music. As a child he learned to play the accordion, which later changed to piano and synthesizers however, he really enjoyed playing any instruments he ever met. After discovering computer based music production and trying himself in different compositions from beatless ambient music to dirty ass-kicking drum’n'bass, he began writing psychedelic tunes as Para Halu in the year 2002.

The past years have seen Para Halu as part of many first class international lineups all over the world from Japan to Brazil, from huge crowded parties and festivals such as Universo Paralello, Ozora, Soulclipse or Fullmoon Festival to indoor clubs and underground outdoor gatherings.

Meanwhile Para Halu released countless tracks on various compilations as well as five succesful albums: self-distributed “No Para Full Halu” (2003) was followed by “The World Of Peace” (Parvati Records 2005), “Space Rock” (2007) and a special collaboration album “Wide Range” (2008).

The latest full-length Para Halu work, a double CD album called “The Future Sound Of Para Halu” was released recently on Adam’s own label Psylife Music, established in 2006 as a platform for innovative psychedelic trance music.

Short after Psylife Music, a sub-label for progressive tunes has also been created: Halu Beats Records released its first compilation in 2008 with Sensient, Kalumet, Minimal Criminal and remixes including the one made from the Ace Ventura gem “Rebirth” by Adam Hohmann himself.

Exclusive mix!  Continuing our series of mixes from Edinburgh's infamous Cosmic crew, this month we present an intelligent set of lush n' trippy progressive beats from Portugal's PsyUbik (co-founder of Planet Monkey).  Much loved for his silky smooth mixing and undying passion for the development of psychedelic music within club-space and in the mystical forests and glens of Scotland.  PsyUbik is also loved by those who know him as a kind and deep spirited guy with a huge heart.  Peace and pos vibes.

Enjoy the mix:

1- Tetrameth -Bushooker

2- Autonomech- I-Q

3- Autonomech-Macro

4- Sensient-Madmans Playroom

5-Sensient- I.D.E

6- Flooting Grooves- Oscillation Blues

7- One Tasty Morsel- Rock Out (part 2)

8- Sensient- Nothern Lights

9- Sensient- Nubile Nuts

10- Tetrameth/Shadow efex- A Slippery Linx

PsyUbik (Planet Monkey)

It was in the underground forest doofs and festivals like Boom during the 90s in Portugal where PsyUbik began to develop his taste for this mind-blowing music. Later driven by the pulse of psychedelic free rave culture in Scotland he mastered how to play/pause a track and started bashing out the tunes in all sort of crazy venues causing a change in consciousness on the fluorgreen dance floor.

Co-founder of Planet Monkey (Edinburgh) in 2004 and promoting Psychedelia in Scotland since, PsyUbik always put on a sharp and versatile performance while playing mind bending psy with dirty beats and heavy bass lines. His DNA is designed for the underground scene and the sets are a trippy journey through a full spectrum of psychedelic sounds. He is also one of the organisers and resident DJ at Cosmic, the longest running psytrance clubnight in Edinburgh and recently after collaborating with some producers such as; Flooting Grooves, Sleep Paralysis and Discoordination he is inspired to master the art of producing his own tunes.

Back To Goa - Kalilaskov AS

This month we bring you a chaotic mix of psycore stoked with atomic energy!   Introducing Kalilaskov AS (or Vadim Cherkashin to his friends).  Kalilaskov means 'the kind one' in Belorussian and the AS stands for Atomic Station.  Why, you may ask?

Well, Vadim is a survivor of the devastation wrought by the nuclear meltdown at the Chernobyl reactor in the former USSR, living very close to the disaster as it happened.  Soon after the catastrophe Vadim and his family moved to Israel where he first got exposure to the psytrance scene, and where his new friends dubbed him 'the kind one'!  

As far as his music life goes Vadim has produced his own material from the word go, first under the french Nabi records label and now with Blittz Studios, where he's contracted to make his first full solo album very soon.

Enjoy the mix and your new year festivities when they come :)  Peace and pos vibes for 2012 from the show!

Artist's own bio:

Kalilaskov AS is Vadim Cherkashin. He was born in the USSR near Chernobyl and after the infamous atomic disaster in the region he moved to Israel with his family.
Now live in Germany - Berlin.
In Israel Vadim fell in love with psychedelic trance and eventually decided to pursue his own solo project. Around the same time the nickname Kalilaskov first appeared. Initially it was only a name used by Vadim's close friends to address him (translated as "the kind one" from Belorussian). But later Vadim adopted this name as his permanent alias and added AS to it, which stands for Atomic Station. Thereby Kalilaskov AS was officially born.
It did not take long for the global psytrance community to take notice of the young musician and his unique music. The very first release came out on the French Nabi Records and after that multiple compilation releases followed on some of the best labels in the world.
Kalilaskov's best of came out in 2008 on Digital Drugs Coalition under the title "Killas" and incorporated Vadim's most renowned compilation tracks. Today Kalilaskov AS is signed to the world famous Russian-Australian giant Blitz Studios and his first full length solo album is to come out very soon!!!
At present Kalilaskov AS is playing all over the world at various indoor and outdoor events, club parties and festivals! Catch him near you :)

A psy mashup set of sorts….ethereal, rollicking and spacey trance weaved together with cleaner club sounding psy-tech goes someway to describing this superb set from Marciana (Back To Mars).  Marciana is originally from Brazil but has been resident in Amsterdam since the 90s, where she stayed in the ELF community soon after arriving.  Here she made her creative contacts including the infamous '9 lives of Hofmann' crew who she later teamed up with, investing her time and music energy into building that part of the Dam's psychedelic scene, all the while honing her skills as an international DJ. 

Since then Marciana has performed across Europe and recently taken pen to paper, sharing her perspectives on Amsterdam's psychedelic scene in 'Psychedelic Traveller 'magazine.  Links can be found on her website.  Meanwhile we hope you enjoy the set :)

TRACK LIST

  • 1. Dohm "Lonely Creatures" Mighty Queen Records
  • 
2. Peace Data "Dancing Revolution" - Arkona Creation 

  • 3. Galactic Monkey "Ticket to Fresno" - Catawampus Records 

  • 4. Ozmali "Petite Chevre" - Ozmali Records

Artist's own bio:


Born in Brazil, Back to Mars (Marciana) has been living in Europe for a very long time. Psytrance got into her life right after she arrived in Amsterdam in the late 90's and went to live in the ELF, a big squat that housed a community of many artists, musicians, DJs, producers, painters, shamans and freaks.

It was in 2001 that DJ'ing became a part of her, when she started helping with building and playing at the parties from 9 Lives of Hofmann, an underground Psytrance crew from Amsterdam and she has since grown into a versatile DJ.
 
Her style is either Minimal Progressive Psytrance (Zenonesque) or Dark Psytrance and often she likes mixing them to create a journey, so she enjoys the freedom of doing that which fits the time and suits the place.
 
In Amsterdam, she also plays Deep House, Lounge, World music and Tech House in lounge bars.

She has performed in Austria, Brazil, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden.
 
Back to Mars also writes for the Psychedelic Traveller (the magazine that specializes in global psychedelic trance), bringing out the article about Psytrance in The Netherlands. You can find a link for these articles clicking on "links".
 
She has recently been invited by the Australians Hedonix to represent their label, Electric Power Pole Records, which concentrates in groovy and deep Progressive Psytrance.

Artists Bio:

 

'I discovered psy trance in 2002 through my mate Ash (Celtic Psy forum keymaster/Psilocybe Tribe(prev.k/a DossePosse)), after 25 years of northern soul & 2 years of techno!

I began accumulating tunes, going to club nights-Alien Resonance/Sunrise/U.V/Kulu/Cabbage & outdoor psy parties in North Wales.

I never set out to be a dj, I just wanted to hear my taste in psy trance. I began by playing a few tunes @ the end of outdoor parties when everyone else was too wasted to play.

Then, based on my enthusiasm & taste, (I think !?) Bez23(Kulu) asked me if I was up for playing @ Kulu (Bradford May 2005) WoW-my chance to play my favourite tunes. I wasn't gonna turn that chance down just because I couldn't dj !

I had 2 months to get to grips with the mechanics of dj ing, anyway its the tunes that count !!

It's been & still is a slow but interesting learning curve this dj malarkey. But, hey I'm enjoying it & for as long as they keep making tickety boo tunes that make me move I'll keep wanting to play them.

Thanks to Ash (celtic psy forum admin/psilocybe tribe & good friend) for getting me hooked on psy trance, for letting me practice on his cdj1000's and for sorting me my own decks & mixer.

Thanks to Gerry Aum (Kulu/Sunrise) for 1st putting the headphones on my head and encouraging me.

Thanks to Bez23 & Kulu for starting my dj ing ball rolling.

Thanks to Messmedia's leap of faith by giving me my 1st residency.

Thanks to Sunrise (Leeds) for my 2nd & current residency.

Thanks to Anushka (Bristol), Shanti (Liverpool), UltraViolet (Wirral) & AudioAddictz (internet radio) for also taking me on as a resident

Thanks to all who have let me loose behind their decks & have helped to make me the obsessed psy trance anorak I am today !!'

Peace and positivity to all as we approach a brand new year :)) 

 

And to mark this occasion we have a very special treat for the listeners of Back To Goa.  An excluisve mix from one of the pioneers of psy-chill, Dimitri AstroPilot!  Specially for the show, AstroPilot has crafted an hour long mix of chilled and dreamy trance with elements lifted directly from his brand new album 'Here and Now' just released on Altar Records.

 

We hope you enjoy and wish everyone a very happy new year :))  

 

Track listings (please visit the album release site for Here and Now listings):

 

http://www.altar-records.com/hereandnow.html

 

Artist's own bio:

 

"AstroPilot comes from Siberia, Russian Federation.  Behind the name is Dmitry Red'ko.

For the past 10 years he has been experimenting with music and sounds.

His music is the direct outcome of his true passion for the sonic world and a lot of hard work in the studio. AstroPilot has quickly become a well recognized name in Psychedelic Ambient circles. His music is a reflection, and combines the culture, sights and sounds form his homeland.

 

AstroPilot manages to generate a considerable buzz especially in the local Russian Psychedelic club scene and as a result has been grabbing the attention from some of the bigger names in the industry. When listening to his music, it is sometimes hard to believe that behind his sound there is just a 26 year old lad who loves to express his visions through his music.

 

Dmitry has been listening to The Future Sound of London and The Orb since he was a little boy. He has also been inspired by the writer Vasily Golovachev and alike...

 

AstroPilot is at home in atmospheres. His music sweeps the listener away into a world of imagination and hypnotizes with it's ethnic spices, rhythms and samples, a higher state of consciousness for the listen, his goal.

 

He is always looking for something new for his performances, in beginning it was more Downtempo Psychedelic trip and now his sets and performances are more dance-able. Including more Ethnic and modern rhythms parts.

 

His first album "Fruits Of The Imagination" was released on Avatar in October 2007.  His second album "Solar Walk" was released on Altar Records, Canada, and a third album on Altar Records still, just released this November 2010."

It is to be fully enjoyed whilst stomping around dancefloors or alternatively by floating above them.

Artists own bio:

 

Kained & Able is the London based project of Steven Johnson and Nolan Luijten. Having met at a party in 2007, they bonded over a shared vision in progressive Psy and a fetish for cross-dressing. They went on to form the Kained & Able project in 2008 and have spent the past year refining and performing their underground blend of psychedelic trance across the UK and beyond. With a primary focus on heavy proggy beats, twisted sound design and hands on live performance, their taste for a minimal and darker form of progressive Psytrance has led them to become a regular feature in the London scene. Over the next year the focus for the duo will include various releases on a few up and coming labels and an EP due out later in the year whilst looking to continue and expand their performances across the UK and Europe.

Artists own bio:  

 

'Para Halu is Adam Hohmann from Hungary - a multi-talented musician and producer who, since his very young age has been always enchanted by music. As a child he learned to play the accordion, which later changed to piano and synthesizers however, he really enjoyed playing any instruments he ever met. After discovering computer based music production and trying himself in different compositions from beatless ambient music to dirty ass-kicking drum'n'bass, he began writing psychedelic tunes as Para Halu in the year 2002.

 

The past years have seen Para Halu as part of many first class international lineups all over the world from Japan to Brazil, from huge crowded parties and festivals such as Universo Paralello, Ozora, Soulclipse or Fullmoon Festival to indoor clubs and underground outdoor gatherings. 

 

Meanwhile Para Halu released countless tracks on various compilations as well as five succesful albums: self-distributed "No Para Full Halu" (2003) was followed by "The World Of Peace" (Parvati Records 2005), and two special conceptual albums "Space Rock" and "Wide Range" (Zaikadelic Records 2007 and 2008). The latest full-length Para Halu work called "The Future Sound Of Para Halu" was released recently on Adam's own label Psylife Music.

 

Short after Psylife Music, a sub-label for progressive beats has also been started: Halu Beats Records released its first compilation in 2008 with Sensient, Kalumet, Minimal Criminal and remixes including the one made from the Ace Ventura gem "Rebirth" by Adam Hohmann himself.'

To celebrate Back To Goa fast approaching its second year we've compiled all the stats over the months to see which bonus sets were download and enjoyed the most by the listeners.  From this we've made a top 3 for you to enjoy in case you missed them earlier :)

Since starting the show we've had sets gifted from new DJs/producers as well as established international acts.  Every mix we've received has been full of energy and passion and we'd like to thank these guys for their kindness and for sharing their creativity.

One thing I've always been amazed at since getting into the psy scene way back in 1997 is the wonderful attitude of the community and the generosity of the DJs, producers and party people.  So few big egos and so much sharing and collaboration which I think is the hallmark of the psy community......we hope you guys keep listening to the show and contributing your wonderful energy in the future :)

So before the top three,  a shoutout to all those who's mixes went live on the show - thank you:

 

Radioactive Cake (Glitchytonic records), Onionbrain (Mind Tweakers Records), New Age Hippies (Cyan music), Minimal Criminal (Cosmic Conspiracy Records), Cryolab, Twisted Kala (Discovalley records), Dark El Kante (6d soundz/adama), Aoidioboa (littleBIGsensations) Kameleon (Pangea), Hex, Nitin, Whirling Dervish (Newtech pirates), Labyrinth (Pangea)

 

Top mixes (based on listener stats):

 

1.  Wedding Trance (Dark El Kante)

2.  Equinox Festival (Labyrinth) 

3.  Minimal Criminal (DJ Zhyin) 

Well done to Dark El Kante for a great dark psy mix which received over 5,300 downloads since it went live in Feb 2009 and had the highest download rate per month out of all the other mixes.

Although launched much later in the year, Labyrinth's and Minimal Criminal's mixes were not far behind in downloads per month - well done guys :)

In case you missed them here's links to the top 3:

Artist's Bio:  

Hi My name is Nitin and I am originally from India currently residing in Edinburgh. The music I get drawn to has to have a melodic touch to it although I am not opposed to the idea of playing other stuff. This is well highlighted in almost all of my musical endeavours.  I have been Djing on and off for the past 6 years .

I can dj any genre of music but psytrance is where the heart is. The sets I make speak loads and have a theme and purpose behind them. I like doing long outdoor sets...:-).....I am into music production as well and am currently working on innovative ideas to create new sounds.  Apart from that I am an Engineer and currently doing a MSc in Digital composition and performance at the University of Edinburgh.

Artists's own bio:  About Radioactive.Cake

 

Radioactive.Cake, real name Robert Hundt, is a Berlin based producer of intelligent psygressive trance music with a touch of wilderness, dark fx and a carrot...from outer space! He produces a more minimal and darker form of progressive psytrance. The Cake's intention is to surpass boundaries and establish a sound that is different from what is heard all too often. 

 

His first musical steps were taken in 1999 when discovering the software "Audiomulch" and learning about structure and composition of electronic sounds, effects and track arrangements. But the Cake's knowledge and studio equipment took a continual advancement and will continue to do so. Robert is not only producing music, he also plays livesets and mixes music as dj, and has done so for over 8 years now.

Artists own bio:

 

I started djing in 96' playing with different forms of music and learning the basics and fundamentals of djing, but in 1999 we (Labyrinth & I) went to our first psytrance party, and it changed everything. We've been playing electronic music in various forms for almost 10 years now. Moving from hard german trance to more anthem style trance to nu skool breaks to progressive into techno and so on... all keeping it very atmospheric , hypnotic, and very universal. I still play many forms of music because each moment in life requires a different sound, but I am mostly focused on darker progressive/techno/tribal and darker melodic psytrance with bounce.From 07' to 09' ive been fortunate enough to play outside Paris (Aracdia Festival), Montreal (with Biogenisis), Melbourne Australia, New York, Northern Cali (Gemini festival), Atlanta GA, Knoxville TN, Charlotte NC, Asheville NC (Equniox Festival), and in our hometown Greenville SC at various locations playing beside some top notch producers such as, Solead, Shotu, Artifakt, Scorb, Random, D sens, Naked Tourist, Mubali, Kri, BSM, Pena, Prime Time, plus lots more. I also make up half of the duo Bioluminescense together with Labyrinth producing deep psychedelic progressive tribal beats for the soul. Also half of the duo LifeN'Limbo putting various forms of emotions from the physical realm into progressive technoish sounds and rhythms. more from both projects soon. We also have 2 radio shows on DI.fm. both are now featured on the 2nd Friday of each month. 1st the progressive show 'Sound Ascension'; airs at 2pm US eastern, our next show 'Initiation into our Tribe' on the psy/goa channel airs at 4pm US eastern, back to back! Both shows will feature some amazing guest from all over the world and especially from our label Pure Perception Records. Im very greatful for the family we have with Pangea, Labyrinth, Klaws, Draigosa and so many other amazingly talented artist we work with with our label. My life is pretty simple but amazingly fun; I am very fortunate for everything thats ever happened to me. I give thanks to the Almighty God, the Savior Jesus Christ, the Blessed Holy Spirit, and the Divine Scribe Hermes Trismegistus, and so many other rightous teachers and elders that have helped lay clues to the meaning of this journey in many forms since the beginning of man, i thank them for their inspiration and helping me to re-connect to the Supernal Conscious of the Infinite through sight and sound. 

Peace -Kameleon aka Matt Bryson
