Hallucinogen is the stage name of Simon Posford, an electronic musician specializing in music from England. His early work is as an engineer on the T.I.P. RECORDS(Raja Ram) and Dragonfly Records(Youth). His first album, Twisted, was one of the most widely influential electronic music recordings which helped to define the psychedelic trance genre. The follow-up album, The Lone Deranger, only cemented his influence.

From then on, Posford ventured into numerous collaborations with other artists. His most notable projects involve artists such as Raja Ram (Shpongle), Martin Glover (Celtic Cross) and Prometheus a.k.a. Benji Vaughan (Younger Brother). Though pooling his talent from a host of worldly influences, many of his fans will attest that he has the “Posford Touch,” a certain unmistakable quality to the sound of his music, that is revered by and enthusiasts from around the world. He is renowned for his meticulous production skills and the multilayered depth his music has.

Simon grew up in the village of Chobham, Surrey. While attending the nearby Woodcote school he played keyboards in his first band, “the Electric Light Failure.” Later as a teenager he experimented extensively with home recording, first on a 4 track portastudio and later with a Tascam MSR-16 16 track recorder.

    He's always been ahead of everyone else. No psy/goa sounds like Hallucinogen, no chillout sounds like Shpongle. Other artists, are you even trying?
