1200 MICROGRAMS

1200 Micrograms are one the leading Global Psy Trance acts without doubt. The combination of GMS with Raja Ram and his buddy Chicago make for action packed music. Forget Beats Per Minute with 1200 Mics, its Thrills Per Minute (145TPM). And when they take it on tour, its a headline act that delivers….hysteria.

The idea for starting the project allegedly came to Raja Ram while he was hallucinating in his hammock in Brazil. Thus, their first, self-titled album featured 9 tracks about Ayahuasca, DMT, Mescaline, LSD, Marijuana, Hashish, Ecstasy, Magic Mushrooms and Salvia Divinorum. The tracks featured many quotes from Terence McKenna and samples from movies such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Matrix.

The second album, Heroes of the Imagination, was dedicated to famous inventors and scientists who dramatically contributed to, or changed, the course of history, including Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, Michael Faraday, Albert Einstein, Charles Babbage, Albert Hofmann, Francis Crick, James D. Watson, and Tim Berners-Lee. This album also contains the 2003 party hit, Acid for Nothing; a trance remix of Dire Straits’ Money for Nothing which samples lines from the movie Waking Life (the track also replaced the phrase “I want my MTV” with “I want my LSD”).

The 3rd album was called The Time Machine. Its songs were influenced by famous places and times in the past — The Creation of the Universe, Stonehenge, Ancient India and Egypt and Greece.
