Talamasca is one of the big names of psytrance and it is the main project of Cedric Dassulle, a french Dj who began to play in 1992 in Paris.

More than 100 tracks have been released on the best labels of this style of music.

Anders Nilsson (30) is the man behind the dream project Andromeda. First release was out on legendary Spiral Trax & further on English Transient Records. After having released 7 albums and 100+ features on compilations with sales over hundred thousand copies. They constantly touring the most important festivals such as Boom, Trancendence, Ozora, Full Moon, Rainbow Serpent and travelling to all 5 continents frequently to deliver their well known Scandinavian sound scapes.
During 2008 he has been busy finishing the follow up of his biggest success "The Remixes". Now the part 2 "Classical Continuation" is in the mix process and the tracklist is bombastic: Logic Bomb-Crystal Skulls, Talamasca-Time Simulation, Bamboo Forest-breath to mention a few.
Andy Nilsson (..78) & Linus Eriksson (..82) from Sweden is the companions behind the continuing project Chromosome, lived previously in Metropols like Amsterdam, Barcelona, the Balearic Islands and in modern days in a villa at the Portuguese Riviera. Education and background: Schooled Musicians and Sound Technicians, conducting choirs at age 7, bought first synth at 8 and father of Anders released 13 albums as violinist and inspired Chromosome to pursuit own career. At 18 while working with musicals and doing sound engineering for live bands like Latin Kings, they discovered the mystical magical dimension of trance, and love as a foundation for living. Discovering oneself as the source as Alex Grey so articularly puts it. This led them to produce their first Vinyl release on the now legendary Spiral Trax. From then until now has been a constant time zone shifting, touring the most insane sceneries n.. festivals, The Boom, Natraj Temple, Rainbow Serpent, Trancendence, Ozora. Developing soft n.. hard-ware for the Gypsy MidiSuit with Sonalog in the UK. Remixed artists like: Jean Michelle Jarre, Bamboo Forest, Silicon Sound, Logic Bomb. Praised by Alex Ligowskij as ...Wunderkind of 21st Century... and received ..Great Works.. reviews by the number one label Dragonfly Records for this Album.
Chromosome - DMT Cowboys
DMT Cowboys is a shponglish adventure into the Otherworlds...' This release of Chromosome 'DMT Cowboys' is the 6th album by Anders Nilsson and Linus Eriksson. A journey through their wide range of creative abilities. The intense touring Summer 2006 peaking with the Boom Festival inspired these psychedelic mind benders to forget an escalation in trance.
Fans worldwide know the unique sound from Scandinavia. The vibrating Ambient in Soul Surfer, hypnotic sound of Andromeda, into the magic full on frequencies by Chromosome. A creative musical environment in youth and music design studies led to a first release at legendary Spiral Trax and further on Transient. After followed the famous Andromeda albums that where sailing best seller charts all over and created big stirs in the trance scene. Influences as P Floyd, Simon Posford, BT, Depeche and Motorcycle are clearly heard on earlier works as well as here. Also the world of Tryptamines are part of the essence behind this album.
The Idea took form with the fellow partner Linus Eriksson who is 26 years old and previously released under Endorian. His extraordinary experience with music and productions led to joining Chromosome in 2006 and together produce this mystical ethnobotanical piece of wave constellation. Together with a masterpiece of artwork and a 8 page booklet painted by Android!
