The ReWind series exists as merely an aid in the discovery (or rather, rediscovery) of the unintentionally forgotten, or the often overlooked tracks of yesteryear.
You may remember that I started this series with a track from British producer Martin Freeland aka Man With No Name. I’ve said many times that I’m a fan of his work and that he is considered one of the key names that helped shape the sound of early trance (namely Goa). With that in mind, it’s time to add yet another one of these pioneers in the mix.
The pioneer I’m referring to is none other than Martin’s fellow countryman, Simon Posford. While he did release many gems under his Hallucinogen moniker, one stands out as the defining track of both his career and Goa trance in general.
Released in April of 1994 at Dragonfly Records, LSD is, without a shadow of doubt, a legendary track in its own right. For comparison’s sake, the sound could be characterized as a cross between Man With No Name and Astral Projection. Don’t get your pitchforks just yet, let me explain what I mean: LSD sits smack bang between the highly energetic vibe of AP and the subtle melodic groove of Martin’s tracks. In other words, it combines the best of both worlds.
To further clarify, I’m not saying AP or MWNN aren’t fantastic producers in their own right. I’m merely using them as points of reference to characterize this track.
Enough with the blabbering, it’s time for the weekly ReWind track. Here’s the sample:
