Lost Dawn returns to the Prince of Wales for another mega all-day mini festival with the awesome Nick Warren. But what makes Lost Dawn a compelling night out is the multi-faceted approach to musical programming. On May the 10th we say a final farewell to the mighty electro trio that is NEON HIGHWIRE, who have chosen Lost Dawn as their farewell gig, and welcome two hot new acts; one spearheaded by the legendary Mark Doggett (aka K90) and his new show DRAYTON and the jazz dance collective that is Stacey Kitson and Kris Noble re-invented as the THE NATURAL SELECTION. I sent them a quick fire Q&A, it’s not Paxman, but hey we like 3 for 1 offers….. [Full Story]

Keeping moving with Mechanimal!
Written by Andy Force on 31-03-14 19:27 (5344 views) (2 comments)
When Mechanimal blasted into our field of vision a few years back, already an astute musician and producer, it didn’t take long for him to become ingratiated into the fold of the UK psychedelic scene. Since then, Nick has been creating an international profile through his hard work on the road and his prolific labour inside the studio with dozens of releases under his belt. Now, with his debut album just released on Mutagen Records, things are looking bright for him, and the future of the music scene appears to be in good hands.

For those who don’t know, Mechanimal is the epoch of morning psychedelic trance, encapsulating all the magic and sparkle of the UK sound, turbo charged with extra oomph. As his new album Inertia flies in at the top of the Beatport chart, we cornered Nick for a chat to find out where he’s been, and what it’s like being at the cornerstone of his career.

HarderFaster Awards 2013 - The results are in!
Written by HarderFaster on 20-02-14 20:44 (7194 views) (9 comments)
Before 2013 faded into a complete blur, we asked HarderFaster members to look back and tell us who, what, when and where made the year memorable, whether that be for good or bad reasons.

This year’s poll saw a good turnout, and your votes continue to demonstrate their usual wit and wisdom with Josie managing a couple of mentions for festival and kerb appearing in every category.

And as we’ve noticed in our recent annual polls, you all have pretty diverse and eclectic tastes so we’ll continue to award top honours to those who were clearly in the lead and honourable mentions to those who were near the top.

Land Switcher – The Earth is Moving at Tribal Village
Written by Andy Force on 04-01-14 14:56 (6657 views) (2 comments)
The evolution of the psychedelic music landscape appears like a vision that is constantly in flux, repeatedly melting and reforming to reveal increasingly unique, complex, and colourful forms. These distinct musical apparitions emerge into our reality and entangle themselves into the social, psychological, and spiritual forces that draw us together. They continue the cycle of creativity, artistry and human connection that creates the magic of the psychedelic experience we share.

Hailing from the French music scene and signed to Free-Spirit Records Land Switcher are an exciting new discovery that are set to take the psychedelic scene by storm. With a brand new EP just released, their music seems to reflect that of the artist whose search for originality, creativity and expression precedes any other motivations. Broken acidic grooves dripping in dubby, earthly rhythms submerged in disrupted psychedelia that tune your brain into another dimension.

Thankfully a poetic description of their music isn’t all we have to go on, because Land Switcher are making an appearance at Tribal Village – A Psychedelic Adventure on the 11th of January at Crucifix Lane. Let’s get 2014 on the move with one of London’s most innovative and inviting psychedelic parties!

Menno de Jong see in the New Year with Trance Sanctuary
Written by Mark Landragin on 16-12-13 07:39 (7211 views)
Menno de Jong has long been one of the most respected Trance DJ/Producers in the scene today. It was back in 2004 when he first burst onto the scene as a 20 year old with his debut production ‘Guanxi’ which was signed to Anjunabeats. Since then he has remixed for the likes of John O’Callaghan and The Thrillseekers as well as producing outstanding tracks such as ‘Spirit’, ‘Turtle Paradise’ & ‘Never Lose The Magic’

Having now spun in over 25 countries, the Flying Dutchman has played at clubs and events such as Godskitchen, Gatecrasher, Global Gathering, Tomorrowland and Sensation White. This NYE Menno will make his Trance Sanctuary debut as he headlines their exciting party at Studio 338 in London. With it being the biggest date on the clubbing calendar, we thought we should find out a bit more about the man who will be at the controls on this special night.

Talking psy trance with Jules Hamer
Written by Tara on 12-11-13 20:41 (8279 views) (1 comment)
The words ‘pioneer’ and ‘legend’ are often loosely bandied about on these pages, but with Jules Hamer aka Aphid Moon aka half of AMD with Dick Trevor having been involved in psychedelic trance since the mid-’90s, they are certainly well suited here.

These days Jules and Dickster are more often found headlining international festivals then playing in their native UK, so when we managed to book them both for an exceedingly rare London set at Astral Circus at Brixton Jamm this Friday 15 November, we were so excited we just had to ask Jules to answer some questions for HarderFaster...

Contineum prepare to propel Astral Circus into a new dimension
Written by Tara on 05-11-13 11:36 (6544 views) (3 comments)
Kezza Brown and Matt Kyriakides are Contineum. Combining the successful solo careers of DJ Mif (Matt) and Razzek (Kezza), their deep rolling basslines, driving percussion and heavily psychedelic sounds aim to project you into a contineum of space and time. Suffice to say they’re perfectly suited to headline the main room at Astral Circus at Brixton Jamm on Friday 15 November alongside AMD, Dickster, Aphid Moon, Nick Sentience, Nikki S, Unitone and Renegade DJ.

With just a few days until the circus hits town, we managed to get the guys out of the studio long enough to answer a few questions for HarderFaster...

System 7 raise the phoenix with Rovo ahead of The Orb's 25th anniversary tour
Written by Tara on 01-10-13 23:18 (7151 views)
Always the innovators, System 7’s new album Phoenix Rising sees Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy collaborate with Japanese band Rovo. Lead by former Boredoms guitarist Seichi Yamamoto, Rovo features two percussionists, funky bass guitar and keyboards as well as an incredible electric violinist. In short, it is undoubtedly their most groundbreaking work yet and over a career that’s spanned the entire inception of what we now call dance music, that is indeed no small thing.

With System 7 supporting The Orb’s 25th Anniversary tour at Manchester Academy 2 on Saturday 12 October and at London’s Forum the following Saturday 19 October, we spoke with Steve about the new album, its connections with the Fukushima tragedy, his links with Alex Paterson and their forthcoming travels…

Written by Psylicious on 30-09-13 16:58 (5776 views) (2 comments)
With his latest EP release ‘Digital Domain’ well underway, launched on Free-Spirit Records and reaching fans, enthusiasts and DJs from all corners of the World, I caught up with musician and producer Vince Garcia to find out more about his foundations and of cause his psychedelic trance act better known as Savage Circuit!

A well known face within the London psychedelic party scene originally from Miami, Vince made his intrepid relocation to the UK to immerse himself further into the culture, music and essence the psychedelic scene has to offer. During his formative years in the UK he released under the moniker ‘Pagan Technologies’, before his evolved emulation transpired into Savage Circuit.
