Biography

Ibiza, Spain (1999- – present)

1200 Micrograms (sometimes credited as 1200 Mics) are a act formed in Ibiza in 1999-. The members are Riktam and Bansi who are the duo also comprising G.M.S., and Raja Ram and Chicago. The band split up in late following ongoing disputes; Riktam was fed up writing all the music and splitting the money three ways, while Raja Ram and Chicago became irritated at Riktam and Bansi’s unreliability in turning up for performances.

The name 1200 Micrograms comes from a reference to the amount of LSD that it would take to dose the four members of the group. A Terence McKenna quotation sampled in the track ‘Salvia Dinivorum ‘: “A substance so powerful that 300 micrograms is the dose. That means 1 gram will dose 7000 people”. Their music is known for the heavy use of guitars and a focus on themes related to drugs.

The idea for starting the project allegedly came to Raja Ram while he was thinking about making an album about his favorite drugs. Thus, their first, self-titled album featured 9 tracks about Ayahuasca, Hashish, Mescaline, LSD, Marijuana, Ecstasy, Magic Mushrooms, Salvia Divinorum and DMT. Not surprisingly, the tracks featured many quotes from Terence McKenna and samples from movies like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The album has been a big success, and 1200 Mics even released a Marijuana music video in 2003.
