Live Mixes

L1 – Hallucinogen – Shamanix (Live Mix)  9:09
Date ? / Source: DAT from French DJ / It was recorded during a live set and has some notable differences in structure.

 

Notes
• The track ‘Alpha Centauri’ circulated as ‘Purple Om – Up 4 More’ during the Goa season of 94/95 on DATs. It is uncertain if that was originally a Purple Om track.
• A track that circulated as ‘Hallucinogen – Thugs In Thy Die (Remix)’ was actually a combination of two tracks, that Simon used to play together in his dj sets: ‘Sulphurex – Point Break + Thugs In Thy Die’. The first was slowed down to match the speed of Simon’s track and they blend perfectly.

Some tracks circulate with wrong artists/names:
• ‘Hallucinogen – Agent Orange’ is actually ‘Beast – Trouble’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Are We Here’ is a track from Orbital.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Brainpilot’ was actually released as ‘SAS/Ban/Tony – Xtra Terresticle’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Dynamix II’s Non-Stop Electro Bass’ is actually a track from Rabbit In The Moon.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Electro Acupuncture’ is actually a short version of ‘Astral Pilot – Electro Acupuncture (Rabbit In The Moon’s Stimulation Mix)’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Gamma Goblins Part 3’ is actually ‘Gamma Goblins Part 1’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Not Just A Drug’ is actually ‘Radiotrance – Boctok 5’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – On The Run’: it is not ‘Purple Om – On The Run’, but from another artist.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Policeman’ was actually released as ‘Infernal Machine – The Loin Sleeps Tonight’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Phuture 2000’ is actually a track from Carl Cox.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Red Zone’ is actually a track from Robert Miles.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Smoke A Little Shit’ is actually released as ‘Younger Brother – Even Dwarves Start Small’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Synchro’: it starts with a track from Synchro and the second half with ‘Hallucinogen – Angelic Particles’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Swamp Thing’ is actually a track from Juno Reactor.
• ‘Hallucinogen – The Eight Devils’ was actually released (on a DAM-CD from mp3.com) as ‘Gigas – The Eight Devils Of Kimon’ (archive link).
• ‘Hallucinogen – The Funklab’ is actually ‘The Funk Lab – Hallucinogen’ released here.
• ‘Hallucinogen – The Last Man In Europe’ is an 8-bit track from another artist, which was once available on psyshop.ru.
• ‘Hallucinogen – The Violin Trance’ was actually released as ‘Celtic Cross – Darshannon’.
• ‘Celtic Cross – No Name’ was actually released as ‘Celtic – Sailing Down The Cosmic Seas’.

Some fake tracks circulated attributed to Simon Posford, such as:
• ‘Hallucinogen – Gamma Goblins Part 3’.
• ‘Hallucinogen – Twisted (Do You Fuck as Well as You Dance Edit)’ is a track from Macguyver.
• ‘Dj UX – Outside This World (Hallucinogen Remix)’: UX does not refer to Kris Kylven’s project, but to the MP3.com project of Robin Gunning (Promon). This track was never remixed by Simon Posford.
