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!!
Not yet available (new production material) - Para Halu
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.

Presenting ManteL FX or Aamir Hamza to friends. Aamir originally hails from Bursa in Turkey and started mixing psy at the age of 22. He nows considers himself a native Indian living and working in the historic gateway city of Mumbai. Aamir says that psytrance had given his life a new meaning and direction and if this mix is anything to go by his personal star is on a very meaningful trajectory indeed!
Hypnotic, banging and messy in all the right ways, this is a mix seeded with the classic psychedelia of the mysterious subcontinent. Play loud…

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:

2- Autonomech- I-Q
4- Sensient-Madmans Playroom
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.

Sorry for the delay with new mixes….busy, busy, busy! This new dark psy offering from Nepal's Smoking Shiva will hopefully go some way to make up for the silence, turbulent and dark with a shiva's characteristic layed-back mixing style. Bishal's last mix for the show was a massive hit with listeners, we hope you enjoy this one too :)) peace

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 meeting(read in his DREAM) 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.
