Hallucinogen has that really rare thing about being a incredible good project while having a great commercial appeal too, every psytrance producer duty is to listen this before even attempting to make music.

For a weird reason he stoped with hallucinogen to make "world music" and i and many more think is time to go back to hallucinogen again!

The brightly shining star of the musical genre 'Goa" that shot rapidly to the top in the mid-90's and has remained there ever since. Goa afficianado's will attest that all his music has a strangely mystical and magikal "posford" touch, which is apparent even in his other aliases and collaborations. His use of synthesizzlers and effects has (in the last 15 years) been matched by but a few.

Though the name "Hallucinogen" is still synonymous with goa-trance (circa 2010), not much output has been seen in the past few years apart from a few single's released on compilations . A third album is long overdue and hopes for it are alive in the hearts of many.

In short, for those unfamiliar with goatrance, listen to either of Hallucinogen's albums for a mind-melting taste of what goatrance is about. For goalovers, you already know what I mean so let us all please goahead and take a bow for the guv'nor of Goatrance !!

Hallucinogen is one of the rare diamonds in the rough, where nearly every track is a 10 / 5, or way beyond any rating.

Probably one of the finest Producers of electronic music. Years before his time and instrumental in pioneering Goa/psytrance music.
