“We are happy to present you a mind-boggling live set byBRAINCELL he sent to the radiOzora listeners this month featuring lots of unreleased tunes from the forthcoming album! Saturday 8pm CET on the Trance channel.
Braincell – who used to be a founding member of the legendary Rastaliens project – is one of the most innovative psychedelic trance artists nowadays who notonly rocks worldwide dancefloors with his full-on oriented psytrance madness but also running a side-project for progressive sounds called Solar Spectrum. Both of the projects incorporated retrodelic goatrance vibes and fusionating it with the latest hi-tech sound. The forthcoming, fifth studio album of Braincell called "5th" is coming out soon at Boom! Records but the radiOzora listeners can get a sneak peak in to it right away, since most of the tracks in this mix are from the upcoming album.”
