HIKARI December 22, 2012 "Rebirth in trance" The world as we all know it is changing. There are people who believe that December 21st, 2012 will be an apocalypse of some sort. Then there are people who don't. And then there are those who believe that what the ancient civilization had in mind was that we are experiencing a mental shift within our societies. We are given a chance, yet again, to change for the better. We've become more sensitive to vibrational frequencies around us, and we are shifting into higher and happier consciousness. So this December 22, 2012, after all the speculations and festivities the night before, we welcome you to spend the night of dancing as we continue together into the new state of rising global awareness and graduating unity. Line-up: KNOBI (COHN) (Hikari, Japan/NY) Extended set (preview of upcoming release) http://soundcloud.com/cohn Knobi has been involved in the music scene since the early 90's, when he discovered the art of psychoacoustics & the sound of electronic music. In the late 90's he started to play psytrance along side of the very founders of the genre itself. Not limited to being in various live bands at the same time also. Knobi's sound will shift and take your mind for a race. No one comes close to his style of mixing, which has been called by many "the live mix" as he mixes new tracks every three to four minutes without you ever noticing, that way keeping you on the dance floor for hours at the time. Knobi's style has been called new and brilliant as it's something you've never experienced before. DJ HORUS (DISORIENT, NY) http://www.facebook.com/DJHorus.aka.Guillaume.Clave?fref=ts Guillaume Clave aka "DJ Horus" has been part of the international electronic music scene for more than 20 years.

Grains of Sound came to Pharmacy Music with a proven history of creating genre defying psy-trance. In 2007, they released their double-disc debut album "Rays of Life", comprised of Vol. 1 Down (downtempo) and Vol. 2 Under (ambient), on AlterCulture Records. The album received excellent reviews and their follow up album "Sine Language" (2010) received even greater acclaim for their exploration of different styles and energy levels. From uptempo psychedelic trance, both progressive and minimal, along with hints of house and breaks, to lush, sweeping soundscapes that wash over sub bass frequencies and deep downtempo beats, to vast evolving layers, organic textures and sentient sounds leave all beats behind, pure ambient intoxication. Dance, chill, or zone, Grains of Sound has you covered. https://www.facebook.com/grainsofsound http://www.grainsofsound.net/ More Guest will be TBA!

Instead of tap dancing around the issue, a label has grown a pair and decided to no longer ignore the 800 pound fungus in the room. Ladies and gentlemen...our music has a drug problem. Pull yourself together! We can get through this! The first thing we need to realize is that it's not your fault. We need to redouble our efforts and try to get the message to the young that drugs are dangerous and shouldn't be taken. Since kids today have a shorter attention span than your average internet porn visit, we need to find something they can relate to... *snaps fingers* Got it! Video games...kids love that sh*t. Ok, are we ready? Is my mic on? How's my hair? The effects of drugs have been presented in a fashion that makes it attractive to potential users all in the name of profit. "Hold up...so I can take drugs and be bigger and faster than before? Uh...by the way...your sister has nice tits." In a totally unrelated incident, the produce shelves of Kroger, Food Lion, and Wal-Mart were picked clean but curiously only mushrooms were taken. Hours later the police had the suspects in custody. Drugs are bad people. As you can see from the telling mugshot above they lead to crime. sexual assault and crooked mustaches flagrant douchebaggery poverty and unemployment most importantly though, they rob you of your potential...turning you into something less than what you can be. "F*ck you Yoshii...are you gonna pass that or what?" The situation is dire. It may already be too late. Reports have surfaced detailling addiction beginning as young as the age of 4. "Won't somebody please think of the children!?!?" So can a simple compilation of psytrance tunes perhaps change the mindset and steer our kids away from such deviant behavior? If not... May God have mercy on our souls. Psychedelic Liberation- "There is more to reality than meets a normal eye." Ladies and gentlemen. You know him...you love him...please welcome...the LSD sample. As I mentioned in the intro our music is full of drug samples like a Waffle House packed at 3am with drunk assholes, but I liked how they presented things here. Because it's not the same sentence repeated ad nauseum, but different bits as the music changes. It's actually...um, psychedelic. With a pumping beat, a few tribal chants, and slight goa leanings...you got yourself a nice little salad right here. Nah, f*ck that it kicked ass...this was a Triple Whopper with cheese. High Dosage- I just got it. Really I did. Parana...like that fish with teeth or the unfortunate movie of the same name. Whazzatnow? They made a sequel to that sh*tfest? Oh Ice Cube, where have you gone? Moving on...This had some pretty sparkling moments with a very powerful bass that wouldn't quit. A little too buildupy for me at times though. Oh Dough Boy. That gif is your soul putting neverending slugs into the sellout you've become. Beautiful Experience- "Each one of us is responsible for a ceremony to heal Mother Earth." Ummm...I just came for the shrimp, so...yeah. You have a real psychedelic track here. Changes in tempo, acidic leads, but I think Mr. Hoffman takes the cake with a long sample spoken over a sad string. Normally I would say momentum killer, but it wasn't. Added to its...psychedelia. It rambles on like a trip that doesn't want to leave. Hypnotic. Shifting Reality- "I don't want you listening to any angry music." "The Carpenters are Angry? I mean..." "Naive Dave. Close To You? We've Only Just Begun? Songs of madness." Obviously spoken before the time of F*ck Tha Police and Boyz In The Hood. Wow, I drop any more references to Cube there will be a puddle on the floor. Kristijan crafts a new school goa track and wields that lead like it's a light saber. Oh Christ, here come the fan boys. DAMN! Did you see him go in for the kill? Public school, I'm tellin' ya....you can't get that sh*t in private school. Back to the lead it flits all over the place, thickens up, and leaves a blood splatter all over the wall. I liked it...not too concerned with being a perfect melody, just unleashes mayhem. Lions Gate- I heard every animal but a f*cking lion. The title says Lion, where's my f*cking lion. Wait...maybe it was in there. I dunno, I'm kinda sleepy. But shut the front door he brings some eeriness that makes my ears perk up. Arpeggios tap out a straight forward melody and acid washes fly by with effects as if they were jerked on a string. Spooky man, like skeletal fingers reaching for you in the dark. Efrain Candia you say? Well you have my attention Efrain...if that is your real name. When Cosmic Winds Collide- Boris your album came out last year? Man it feels like 5. Loved it by the way, but you knew that. He makes it rain on you again with his brand of Nitzho melodies that come together like a tight french braid. There is no rest here, as it is in constant motion. Wanna know what was in my head while this song was on? French maids, erotic cookies, and a girl scout committing arson. It's a landmine in there, I'm tellin' you... Overdosed Serbs- F*cking hell, Imba you're only 21? I hate you. I'm old enough to be your fa...very cool uncle. So he get's with another Serb and this is what happens when you take too much...whatever it is you young kids take. This is an acidic ride that opens your mouth and stuffs it full of goa madness. Reminded me of some old Kuro type insanity with some cool percussive weirdness. But the star here is that lead. And did you know that according to Discogs there are 56 different projects named Nemesis? Maybe you want to stand out from the crowd more. Here you can use this one...purplemonkeydishwasher. Just throwing it out there. BTW, in a crazy coincidence my wife has a cousin who is an awesome rapper named...wait for it...Boom. Emcee Nemesis. Margarita- The short midtempo outro, a lost art form. This was the only track that sounded like it couldn't handle the bass. Could be my sh*tty headphones though. Maybe I should get a pair of Dr Dre's Beats headphones. Yeah...I'd be real cool then. This has chanting, birds, didjeridoo, and big bass. A side project of Mr. Dark Fox, I don't know what to make of it. Love the bass and the melody at the end but it was too short for me to really form an opinion one way or the other. Man that was good. Really good. First of all it sounds great, so hats off to Mr. Dark Fox for the mastering. It's uber psychedelic with great samples and not one track sounds the same. Evolving and enveloping. This sh*t was free? I would've paid for it. I'ts almost one a.m. and I'm starting (starting?) to lose it. Gotta get up and be in a "driver improvement class" tomorrow morning because John Q. Law says I ran a stop sign. How the f*ck do you do that. It's a huge red octagon. Did he think I thought it was an apple? Meh...I'll tell you about it later. Ektoplazm Mdk
