AcidTrip is a dedicated artist who stands for redemption, change & progression. AcidTrip returns with an incredible masterpiece that definitely separates him from the rest musically. The cover alone is immaculate. It represents universal truth from different cultures, sciences, and religions. He explains that when we know ourselves we can identify connections to all things. The production is entirely by Wichti from Krasnodar, Russia. AcidTrip & Wichti communicated through a translator through the creative process of this album because of the language barrier. But sonically you would think they spoke the same language in the same studio due to the cohesion of their sound. The album starts with a Psychedelic Party mood and quickly transitions to More Intimate Emotions And aspects of his being Including bliss, insecurities, and pain. AcidTrip exposes the darker side of his soul which later balances out to his current mindset. A nocturnal lightworker who embodies the duality of good and bad and promotes the ascension of humanity.
