Text by Codek:
Back in 2002 when Alex Gloor moved back to Basel/Switzerland from New York, he played a friend of his the Schaltkreis Wassermann LP PSYCHOTRON from 1982 with the Daniele Baldelli/Bepe Loda cosmic classic LUX. To Alex’s surprise his friend knew PJ Wassermann, had his phone number and he lived near Basel, so Alex and PJ became friends & over the next 14 years stayed in close contact and worked on different project together. 2016 PJ was urged by his girlfriend to finally clean up his messy attic, which he did under protest, and to everybody’s surprise found forgotten recordings from his legendary LSD sessions from 1981, master tapes with live recordings of synth noodling created on many weekend “LSD Trips” recorded on a Revox reel to reel tape machine. After baking the tapes for two days at 50°C they revealed astonishingly good audio quality.
 
Perfect material for remixes we thought!
 
So we got a few different producers to work with the material and come up with new tracks rather than just remixing an old release.
