Glade Festival is proud to announce the addition of not one, not two but THREE of the true pioneers of the psychedelic sound; Raja Ram, Simon Posford and Benji Vaughan join forces to present the Twisted Sound System in a very RARE special two-hour show prepared exclusively Glade 2012.
Headlining the Friday night on the Origin Stage Twisted Sound System are, between them, responsible for ground-breaking music including Shpongle, Hallucinogen, Younger Brother, Prometheus and many other musically defining projects. We’re pleased to announce that they are currently locked in the studio preparing this special one off set featuring synths, laptops, drum machines and much more for a psychedelic journey as never seen or heard before.
Simon Posford is one of the most influential artists in the psychedelic scene. Under the name Hallucinogen, he defined the Goa trance sound with the track LSD, taken from the 1995 album Twisted. In 1996, Simon launched Twisted Records, which is one of the most important trance imprints in the world. After releasing his second album The Lone Deranger in 1997 Simon began collaborating with Raja on Shpongle and went on to produce a trilogy of genre defining downtempo albums. Simon also performed in live outfit Younger Brother with the third member of the Twisted Records Sound System, Benji Vaughan.
From blazing the hippie trail in the sixties through Goa and beyond, founding psychedelic rock band Quintessence and performing at the first two Glastonbury Festivals, Australian-born Raja Ram is known as one of the founding fathers of the psychedelic trance movement. After a brief hiatus, he returned to the music scene at the birth of acid house and alongside Graham Wood and Ian St Paul, launched TIP Records which later became TIP World, one of the most well-known psy-trance labels in the world. Raja Ram is one half of Shpongle alongside Simon Posford. He is also part of 1200 Mics alongside Ibiza-trance legends Riktam & Bansi AKA Growling Mad Scientists.
Benji Vaughan is most well known for his solo project Prometheus which is signed to Twisted Records. As Prometheus he has released three killer albums: Robot O Chan, Corridor Of Mirrors and Spike
A word from Shpongle ringmaster Raja Ram:
Like a blind man in a dark room trying to describe an elephant, or a neutrino making love to an electron, some things are hard to describe in detail, the sun dazzling on white snow, the smile of a loved on, or the grace of a tortoise on opium bedecked with and precious jewels. A probe into the unconsciousness swirl of the imagination, laced with ginger and honeysuckle, these are a few of my favourite blings, a super nova concoction of old new and future, laced with a drop of the good stuff. The set will be like three madmen sailing off in the middle of the night in a small boat without a compass, semi dangerous, not for the faint hearted or incontinent, a bare knuckle flight to unreality and back, super turbo charged, size thirteen shoes and an attitude to match. These are the cosmic three scientists of sound manipulation, sonic strangulation, loose underpants, and an enormous arsenal of sounds from the last 20 years of working together and the next 20 years of sorting out our differences, which are the same. A treat for sure, the unexpected, The Gollom in the attic, the Robot in the suitcase. This is a night to really shake the follicle of the bollicules, so try to forget to remember to forget, wake up dreaming, and come to the mightiest sound collage since the banning of sea shanties and Tibetan horns. Prometheus will set the fire, we will Hallucinate you, and Shpongle-ise you... surprise you...
The Secret Garden Party production team have given the digital arts on site at the festival a new lease of life, with artists such as Polyphant (http://www.polyphant.tv/) commissioned to design a bespoke immersive environment where he will be blurring the boundaries between architecture, light and space. More bespoke installations will be announced soon.
