Bowery and Mr. Bugsly Presents:
w/s/g Horizon Wireless
Saturday, June 4th, 2011
Brooklyn Bowl - 61 Wythe Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11211
Mr. Bugsly is excited to help bring psychedelic mastermind, Simon Posford, to Brooklyn Bowl for a very special Hallucinogen show on Saturday, June 4th! The show is only $15 and will sell-out so get your tickets ASAP. Joining Posford are NYC based Drummer DJ Duo Horizon Wireless.
Hallucinogen aka Simon Posford is a pioneer of electronic music and founder of the psy-trance scene. With the release of his first album, "Twisted", which reached Number 27 in the French album charts, a genre was born. There are many words to describe modern electronic music but none that come close to the wealth of emotion and experience that comes from listening to a Posford tune.
These days he is just as likely to be entrancing crowds around the globe with a throbbingly epic live set as he is to be dribbling ambient delectations in the Hallucinogen Soundlabs in the West Country. He is co-director of Twisted Records with Simon Holton, ex-label manager of Dragonfly Records. Their label is one of the hottest underground gatherings of talent this side of Mars. Hallucinogen's second album "The Lone Deranger" blew the lid off the musical scene that had built up around his influence. Not only did it have more of the killer musical riffs but also was a feat of clean production and professionalism previously seen with the likes of The Floyd, one of Simon's major influences. Another tune that influenced Simon was "The Age of Love" by Jam & Spoon and this can be heard in some of his earlier releases. More recently he has produced tracks with Benji Vaughan as their band Younger Brother, Simon Posford has completed new sounds with Dub 'Ott' & Hallucinogen and is currently collaborating with the Twisted Allstars and touring the world spreading his music to all sorts. There is talk of a 'Hallucinogen 3' but Simon's most recent album is "Tales of the Inexpressible", his second album by Shpongle. Simon is the musical genius behind Shpongle and for this latest orgy of brain fluid he gathered 4 other talented musicians, as well, of course, as Raja Ram- Druid of Psy.
To date Simon Posford is working along side Merv 'Eat Static' as well as working on the new Shpongle album with Raj watch out for it!
DJ/Producer Harrison Waxenberg has been making music since he was able to tie his shoes. This might have been later than most children his age, but better late than never. After playing numerous shows and festivals under this moniker for the past year, Horizon Wireless seems to only be picking up speed and momentum. With the addition of Sol Montoya (Digifront) on drums, Horizon Wireless becomes a storm of soul smashing beats, titillating harmonies, and wet melodies. This sonic tsunami can easily induce multiple crowdgasms. Bringing a towel to shows is not only recommended, but also encouraged.
Since the beginning of 2011, Horizon Wireless has received considerable mention for every cut they have put out. Their first mix tape won Grassroots California's Mixtape Competition (http://www.subsynthesis.com/2011/04/grassroots-california-contest-winner/) landing them a sponsorship with one of the highest quality merchandisers in the music scene today. Shortly thereafter, their remix "My Baby Does Que?!" was released exclusively on the None Backwards "Spring Forwards" Compilation CD for Rock Against Cancer alongside acts like Big Gigantic, Archnemesis, Michal Menert, The Polish Ambassador, and Two Fresh (http://nonebackwards.bandcamp.com/). And their third release, "Can't Get Enough," was the #1 pick of the week on The Untz (http://theuntz.com/Nattys-Picks-of-the-Week-Volume-20)...check these guys out as soon as you can.
