2016 line up included…OOOD
Formed in the UK in 1994, OOOD have been around for as long as there’s been psytrance. Their eclectic third album ‘Free Range’ (Organic, 2006) was regarded by many as one of the very best psytrance releases that year. Two years later they released ‘Fourthought’ (Phar Psyde, 2008), an 80-minute psychedelic journey through downtempo, breaks, electro, blues and a varied selection of psytrance; again the album attracted ’11/10 A+’ reviews and saw them consolidate their place as one of the few acts from the birth of the scene who are still actively contributing. Recent releases have seen them reach high positions in various download charts, with their Oddball EP (Broken Robot, 2010) reaching #1 on Trackitdown and #13 on Beatport. As well as the originality, sense of fun and excellent production they bring to their releases, OOOD have been praised for their live sets. They have been surfing the wave of their creativity for over 15 years and their mission has always been to have a good time, spread joy and write the best tunes they can; if you’ve heard or seen them recently you’ll know just how well they are succeeding.
