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 special treat for the listeners of the show….a recording of a producer set from the legendary Para Halu (Adam Hohmann), performed live at this years Ozora fest.
These are all brand new and as yet unreleased tracks from Adam weaved together into a no-nonsense high energy electro-funk-adelic soup!!
Not yet available (new production material) - Para Halu
The man behind Para Halu is Adam Hohmann from Hungary – a multi-talented musician and producer who, since his very young age has been always enchanted by music. As a child he learned to play the accordion, which later changed to piano and synthesizers however, he really enjoyed playing any instruments he ever met. After discovering computer based music production and trying himself in different compositions from beatless ambient music to dirty ass-kicking drum’n'bass, he began writing psychedelic tunes as Para Halu in the year 2002.
The past years have seen Para Halu as part of many first class international lineups all over the world from Japan to Brazil, from huge crowded parties and festivals such as Universo Paralello, Ozora, Soulclipse or Fullmoon Festival to indoor clubs and underground outdoor gatherings.
Meanwhile Para Halu released countless tracks on various compilations as well as five succesful albums: self-distributed “No Para Full Halu” (2003) was followed by “The World Of Peace” (Parvati Records 2005), “Space Rock” (2007) and a special collaboration album “Wide Range” (2008).
The latest full-length Para Halu work, a double CD album called “The Future Sound Of Para Halu” was released recently on Adam’s own label Psylife Music, established in 2006 as a platform for innovative psychedelic trance music.
Short after Psylife Music, a sub-label for progressive tunes has also been created: Halu Beats Records released its first compilation in 2008 with Sensient, Kalumet, Minimal Criminal and remixes including the one made from the Ace Ventura gem “Rebirth” by Adam Hohmann himself.

Exclusive mix! Continuing our series of mixes from Edinburgh's infamous Cosmic crew, this month we present an intelligent set of lush n' trippy progressive beats from Portugal's PsyUbik (co-founder of Planet Monkey). Much loved for his silky smooth mixing and undying passion for the development of psychedelic music within club-space and in the mystical forests and glens of Scotland. PsyUbik is also loved by those who know him as a kind and deep spirited guy with a huge heart. Peace and pos vibes.
Enjoy the mix:
1- Tetrameth -Bushooker
2- Autonomech- I-Q
4- Sensient-Madmans Playroom
6- Flooting Grooves- Oscillation Blues
7- One Tasty Morsel- Rock Out (part 2)
8- Sensient- Nothern Lights
9- Sensient- Nubile Nuts
10- Tetrameth/Shadow efex- A Slippery Linx
PsyUbik (Planet Monkey)
It was in the underground forest doofs and festivals like Boom during the 90s in Portugal where PsyUbik began to develop his taste for this mind-blowing music. Later driven by the pulse of psychedelic free rave culture in Scotland he mastered how to play/pause a track and started bashing out the tunes in all sort of crazy venues causing a change in consciousness on the fluorgreen dance floor.
Co-founder of Planet Monkey (Edinburgh) in 2004 and promoting Psychedelia in Scotland since, PsyUbik always put on a sharp and versatile performance while playing mind bending psy with dirty beats and heavy bass lines. His DNA is designed for the underground scene and the sets are a trippy journey through a full spectrum of psychedelic sounds. He is also one of the organisers and resident DJ at Cosmic, the longest running psytrance clubnight in Edinburgh and recently after collaborating with some producers such as; Flooting Grooves, Sleep Paralysis and Discoordination he is inspired to master the art of producing his own tunes.

This month we bring you a chaotic mix of psycore stoked with atomic energy! Introducing Kalilaskov AS (or Vadim Cherkashin to his friends). Kalilaskov means 'the kind one' in Belorussian and the AS stands for Atomic Station. Why, you may ask?Well, Vadim is a survivor of the devastation wrought by the nuclear meltdown at the Chernobyl reactor in the former USSR, living very close to the disaster as it happened. Soon after the catastrophe Vadim and his family moved to Israel where he first got exposure to the psytrance scene, and where his new friends dubbed him 'the kind one'!

He was born in the USSR near Chernobyl and after the infamous atomic disaster in the region he moved to Israel with his family.Now live in Germany - Berlin.In Israel Vadim fell in love with psychedelic trance and eventually decided to pursue his own solo project. Around the same time the nickname Kalilaskov first appeared. Initially it was only a name used by Vadim's close friends to address him (translated as "the kind one" from Belorussian). But later Vadim adopted this name as his permanent alias and added AS to it, which stands for Atomic Station.

The very first release came out on the French Nabi Records and after that multiple compilation releases followed on some of the best labels in the world.Kalilaskov's best of came out in 2008 on Digital Drugs Coalition under the title "Killas" and incorporated Vadim's most renowned compilation tracks.

A psy mashup set of sorts….ethereal, rollicking and spacey trance weaved together with cleaner club sounding psy-tech goes someway to describing this superb set from Marciana (Back To Mars). Marciana is originally from Brazil but has been resident in Amsterdam since the 90s, where she stayed in the ELF community soon after arriving. Here she made her creative contacts including the infamous '9 lives of Hofmann' crew who she later teamed up with, investing her time and music energy into building that part of the Dam's psychedelic scene, all the while honing her skills as an international DJ. Since then Marciana has performed across Europe and recently taken pen to paper, sharing her perspectives on Amsterdam's psychedelic scene in 'Psychedelic Traveller 'magazine. Links can be found on her website. Meanwhile we hope you enjoy the set :)TRACK LIST

Artist's own bio:
Born in Brazil, Back to Mars (Marciana) has been living in Europe for a very long time. Psytrance got into her life right after she arrived in Amsterdam in the late 90's and went to live in the ELF, a big squat that housed a community of many artists, musicians, DJs, producers, painters, shamans and freaks. It was in 2001 that DJ'ing became a part of her, when she started helping with building and playing at the parties from 9 Lives of Hofmann, an underground Psytrance crew from Amsterdam and she has since grown into a versatile DJ. Her style is either Minimal Progressive Psytrance (Zenonesque) or Dark Psytrance and often she likes mixing them to create a journey, so she enjoys the freedom of doing that which fits the time and suits the place. In Amsterdam, she also plays Deep House, Lounge, World music and Tech House in lounge bars.She has performed in Austria, Brazil, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden. Back to Mars also writes for the Psychedelic Traveller (the magazine that specializes in global psychedelic trance), bringing out the article about Psytrance in The Netherlands. You can find a link for these articles clicking on "links". She has recently been invited by the Australians Hedonix to represent their label, Electric Power Pole Records, which concentrates in groovy and deep Progressive Psytrance.backtomars.net
