“Josh Keyes’ style is reminiscent of the diagrammatic vocabulary found in scientific textbook illustrations that often express through a detached and clinical viewpoint an empirical representation of the natural world.

A live record of Pophop, core member of the 3000° collective, playing at the Mit Pauke und Trompete event in Hamburg last weekend. Impetuous Balkan music meets Polka, Latin flavour, and electronic grooves.

Just discovered this apparently unreleased footage from the DMT – The Spirit Molecule documentary. Putting things in a nutshell, Douglas Rushkoff talks about healthy psychedelic use, consciousness engineering and the risks of taking things too serious: “The best psychedelic explorers are people who realize that even the truths they see on a trip are not truths but new models.”
The new mushroom magazine is out! This time it includes heaps of artist features for the upcoming Freakplanet Tour. I had interesting interviews with jack of all trades Chris Zippel, S.U.N. Project, black light bodypainting master Wolf and the Psytrance veterans O.O.O.D., just to name a few. Also, mushroom had a little interview with me, in which I tried to explain my Hedonistic Freelancer philosophy.
