Hallucinogens debut album Twisted, released in 1995, set the standard for the then burgeoning trance scene, showing him to be a true pioneer and master of his art. now in 1997 he is set to release his second album The Lone Deranger this time on his own label, with another fine selection of his own particular brand of psychedelic techno the album was recorded in Dorset at Hallucinogens Sound Labs and has eight tracks including January's single release, Deranger. Hallucinogen (aka simon posford) put out his debut single LSD in 1994 on Dragonfly Records, followed by Flouro Neuro Sponge in 1995 and the album Twisted in October that year. Twisted sold well in the uk and throughout Europe, reaching no. 26 in the French national chart. the next release was the single Space Pussy in march 1996 and was his last release on Dragonfly. at the end of 1996 Simon formed Twisted Records with partner Simon Holtom (ex label manager of Dragonfly Records) releasing Deranger in January 1997. they hoped to release the new album The Lone Deranger at the start of the summer but overseas licensing problems pushed the release date back to 1st September 1997.

A Goa Classic

"Simon Posford, the man behind Hallucinogen and Shpongle, has an excellend reputation for being a really good goa trance DJ, and a lot of it is because of this CD. It has clean, clear sound and the loops are more like spirals - the melodies keep changing in an intricate way, just right to let you get into that trance state when dancing but yet changing all the time. The sound 'morphs'. Posford manages to do this very well, even better than Astral Projection. There are samples that conjure up images, like a running water sample in Gamma Goblins. If you want to hear what psychedelic trance is all about, you need Posford's stuff. This CD is a classic.Techno and goa especially seems very underground in the US, so let me add a note for Americans: This music IS for dancing, and it's not underground. This IS big and commercial. This is part of the techno dance culture. Be ready to leave the bump 'n grind behind, because you need to meld with the music and move much faster. Give this a try - there's a reason this is a huge movement elsewhere."
Gotta love it

"I LOVE this CD. It was this CD that started me on my love of Goa Trance. Even with the collection I've been able to acrue so far, this is still one of my all time favorites. Simon Posford excells with this style of music. The CD is done in a continuous mix format where one song leads to the next. It's all put together so well. Your mind just flows along where the music takes you. It is truly a beautiful thing. Be sure to especially check out Snakey Shaker and Trancespotter. I think those might be the best two tracks on the disc."
Hold on to your hats......here comes best of all Trance

"My story goes back about a year. I downloaded song called "Aqua Line Spirit" which I originally thought it belong to Danish group "Aqua." Watching the encoded information on WMP I realized I was not dealing with Aqua, but duo of DJs from Israel who call themselves "Astral Projection." I immediately got hooked to Trance - Goa style of music. Over past few months I've been intensively searching for others like that. I bought some albums from Juno Reactor, X-Dream, Space Tribe, Man With No Name, Green Nuns, Infected Mushroom, Darude, Prana and king of Trance like Paul Oakenfold. Well, guess what? Despite the fact I like many tracks from all these Trance music architects, I have to say neither one of them can be compared to Hallucinogen's album "The Lone Deranger." This album is highly likely the best product ever created in the history of Trance. In my view none of Oakenfold's or Fat Boy Slim's albums come even close to this one. If you hesitating and you want to hear the best, listen to Trancespotter, Horrorgram or track Deranger. If any of you purchased the album and didn't like it and now putting a blame on me and my review I apologize, but please do me a favor....forget about the Techno-Trance-Goa and go back to your Britney Spears and Spice Girls business."
