Biography

There’s more artists releasing under name Prahlad. This page is related to trance/progressive artist, while other Prahlads includes Anand Prahlad, a accoustic blues artist.

Prahlad was born in Quito, Ecuador in 1975. After living in South America until the early 80’s he moved to The Netherlands in 1982. Here he first started playing the drums and synths in bands. Eventually his fascination with sound and music technology led him to go study audio engineering at SAE in Amsterdam. After his audio schooling he moved to Ibiza. The year was 1994 and on the Island the outdoor trance scene was second to none.

A few years later a close friend suggested traveling to India in order to learn about meditation. The first trip to India followed in 1999, where he was given the name Prahlad. Originally a Sufi name meaning joy.

Since 2001 Prahlad has been living in Germany. Initially working at Free Form Records, when the label closed down, he set up his own audio company: Inspired Sound. Since then he has been working behind the scenes as a sound system optimizer and stage manager at various festivals.


Movements of Consciousness was inspired by an interview with Dr. Goswami, a leading quantum physicist. This radical science is revolutionising many people’s view of the world, and being fascinated with its fundamental theories, Prahlad became drawn to write a unique accompanying soundtrack. The album spans a wide range of electronic music: influences can be heard from Electro, Progressive and Full On. However, the overall sound is also distinctly different: besides contagious groove elements and psychedelic effects, it also leaves space for expansive arrangements and captivating melodies.

    The main "problem" with Prahlad is that you will never be able to come up with proper definition of his music. This is NOT progressive psytrance, it's not full-on and for sure it has nothing to do with regular/traditional trance. Unsophisticated, with warm synth lines, fluent, beat-driven, a bit sentimental yet intelligent trance music. That's what it is.

    Love Prahlad material, especially Melt which is actually from his Ambient/Chill project under a different name and features on a compilation from Klassik Radio Germany.

    IMO "Movement of Consciousness" is the best psytrance album ever released. And it contains very useful information. Prahlad had great idea that music can be also the movement of consciousness. If you want some more information about consciousness - check "Mind Over Matter" on youtube. And be conscious! The age of consciousness is comming!:)
