Artist's own bio:
Radioactive.Cake, Zeitgeist, Munstrous, Dark Passenger…that’s all Robert H. from Berlin Germany. Not only music producers and performer for many years, he also established the music label Glitchy.Tonic.Records in September 2009, which is now one of the leading forces in the "Alternative Psytrance Trance" - or what's often refered to as Dark Prog or Zenonesque.
Taking the first musical steps around the time of the millennium, his skills and technique and productions were constantly evolving and advancing over the years. In late 2008 he felt he finally reached the quality to go way more professional. He brought Radioactive.Cake and Zeitgeist to life, aiming for releases and gigs and of course for good feedback. Getting all three, he soon wanted another challenge or rather more ways of expressing his musical creativity and he started Munstrous and Dark Passenger.
Today, Robert can look back on an extremely long list of releases and has gained quite some experience performing his stuff live. He played his projects at Festivals like Freqs Of Nature, Lost Theory Festival, Boom Festival, Solaris Festival, Cosmo Festival, Transylvania Calling, Pandemonium Festival, SpaceCamp Psyfari Festival and many others.
With his 4 music music projects, Robert has released 8 albums so far, CD and digital format, and dozens of single tracks. Might check the Releases section if you're interested in what is available where and how.
Number 9 and new Zeitgeist album "tasteless - pointless - Significant!" is getting released in May 2015.

A Project Headed towards Infinity all are welcome to join......The project is Bishal a.k.a Satish and his wife Susan supported by all of their friends and family From the outskirts of Kathmandu valley ...a little hilltop town called Kirtipur in NEPAL " The land of mystics". After his Lucid Sonic Hyper Dimensional(read in his dream) meetings with the techno shaman Goa Gil and his wife Ariane his whole life took on a new meaning and a new found glory of living to the will of Existence. Heavily into the Dark side of the musical Realm exploring different dimension of Death metal and the likes he played with various local Metal bands as vocalist and guitarist from the early nineties and literally lived the rock n roll lifestyle and survived. After his Cosmic Dance with the Ferocious DArk Deities he got his showering of liquid ecstasy and visions for his Project "Smoking Shiva". He is crazy as hell and his frequency from the Dark side of the Existence provokes the hidden energy from the Kunda within all living beings giving U the Ultimate Reality Check.
He may not be your so called technically Proficient Dj or producer but he believes his Craft to be not that of practice but that of letting go and letting the Spirit take over and merging the unconcious of his fellow Humans with the Void from where all life seems to Manifest.
