Ceiba Records

Ceiba Records

In the summer of 1996, Ceiba Records was founded in San Francisco. This pantheon of Psytrance, Psybreak and Ambient-Downtempo sights and sounds was an answer to California's expanding festival scene and the international party circuit.

Before Ceiba Records there were only a few people in the US even aware of Psy-trance, a core group of travellers, loosly organized around the CCC collective, infected by the goa-vibe, started to organize underground trance parties in San Francisco.

Peter Ziegelmeier aka Kode IV, had been a producer of electronic music in the U.S. for several years, evolving from the Industrial techno towards more psychedelic sound in the early 90's.

Peter, Goa Gil and Ariane were pioneers of trance music in America, when they started to produce together in 1992.

At that time Peter was signed as Kode IV with a Belgian label, but wanted to regain his artistic freedom- thus in 1996 Peter, then with Adam Ohana and Jonas Judd created the independent label Ceiba Records to open a platform for psychedelic trance in the U.S.
