OVNI is a kick as label by well-known Producer and manager Julien aka Angry Luna. He was able to form a fantastic team of producers, artists, and DJs around him. The label has a distinct funky vibe to it and the people in it seem not only be connected through music but also through friendship. This is one thing that got lost over the past ten years it seems. Many labels became more of an interest-based thing than anything based on love and friendship. The label has many promising Artists signed such as Veteran producer Neokontrol and his Wife Rose and is constantly expanding its roaster with fresh promising talents. The label manager Julian and the OVNI crew are also well known for producing some of the funniest psytrance travel and gig videos around. Check out “The Ovni Show” on youtube or facebook!

Noise Poison. Did you read correctly? Yes, you did. It seems that the label is reforming under new management. Noise Poison managed what very few labels achieved. They helped to create the new psychedelic music branch that is known today as “Hightech Psychedelic Trance” or simply “hitech”. Every Artist signed in that label caused some serious ripples in the psychedelic music world. The annually held Noise Poison Festival still is thought of the pinnacle of a hitech psychedelic music experiences. It featured the creme de la creme of the subgenre on a surreal sized Line array Funktion 1 System. They also had a 15-meter wide pool behind the stage that was specially made for 3-dimensional visuals. They used high powered pumps to spray water dust into the air. This was used as a canvas for countless projectors and lasers. Losing Noise Poison Records and Noise Poison Festival was a huge loss for the scene.
