Olli Wisdom is the man behind the psychedelic phenomenon that is Space Tribe, a phenomenon that morphed into existence on the paradise beaches of Goa, India in the early 90’s.
After years of performing as a live singer in the theatrical glam and gothic rock group Specimen, and running the famous London goth club The Batcave, Olli traveled to Asia, eventually arriving to Goa, India. It is in Goa where he first started to blast parties with music as a DJ, with great love to the pulse of the emerging psy trance music scene. That is also where he gained his reputation as a psytrance pioneer.
Ever since those early days in Goa Olli has been a pioneer of Psychedelic Trance music. His uncompromising musical attitude, with high-energy and ear tickling psychedelic music, that have been his trademark for over 20 years, is an inspiration for generations of psytrance artists and fans around the world.
