Revisiting Psychopod more than 10 years on and it's pretty obvious these guys were on the bleeding edge of psychedelic sounds when this was released. Like any of the Koxbox releases this has aged exceptionally well and sounds very fresh to this day.

The sheer bubbliness of the psychedelics in Dreampod along with some truly memorable melodies make for an amazing journey through sound with several highs throughout the track. Like always with the Koxbox/Saikopod crew the percussive elements are solid with an infectious groovy bassline rounding out the experience.

After such a storming experience your synapses are then assaulted by a faster, more thumping and squeaky Psychopod. This has a soundscape similar Dreampod, probably because a lot of the same patches and sounds are used in both. Psychopod doesn't feature the same amount of uplifting melodic lines, but is still a solid track.

This is a highly recommended release, and I would love to hear this played out :)

Enter Psychopod, side-project of legendary danish trance act Koxbox. Psychopod would later change name to Saiko-Pod focusing on a more club-oriented sound. Psychopod, however, still ventures in psychedelic waters. And like a fish.

In many ways, Ian Ion, Frank E and Peter Candy defined the psychedelic trance sound of the mid nineties. Trippy, diverse tracks with loads of different sections, and very complex. Then again, no other act sounds like them so it may not be easy to say they defined anything!

Dreampod / Psychopod is built over the same themes and exhilarates in FX. It may remind a little of the Stratosfear single which is also from 1996 but things get even more spacey on Dreampod. These guys were always far out and with this album it's like they decided to see how far they could take their sound. Psychedelic when it's very best, but also very challenging for the listener. There are no dull moments here and you have to be in with the music all the time to get the full effects of the riddly bullets of sound Psychopod throws at you.

But if you can, this is some of the most intelligent contemporary music around. Bom shankar
