New Genre of Electronic Music Emerges for Psychedelic Therapy

This week Billboard highlighted a fascinating new trend that blends electronic music with emerging psychedelic therapies. With Ketamine Clinics and Psilocybin Therapists exploding onto the wellness scene in the last several years.

The year: 1992. The place: a rave in a field outside Manchester. I’d taken enough e to send Hannibal’s 37 elephants into the stratosphere and I said to the geezer I was dancing next to, “This is the most beautiful thing that’s ever happened to me.” He replied, “This whole deal’s a hallucination, mate.
