1200 Micrograms -1200 Micrograms (TIP World 2002)

4924 days ago



1200 Micrograms (sometimes credited as 1200 Mics) are a psychedelic trance act from Ibiza. The members are Riktam and Banzi, from G.M.S., Raja Ram and Chicago. The name 1200 Micrograms comes from a reference to a very high dose of LSD and the Terence McKenna quotation sampled in the track Salvia Divinorum: "A substance so powerful that 300 micrograms is the dose. That means 1 gram will dose 7000 people". Their music is known for the heavy use of guitars and a focus on themes related to drugs.

The idea for starting the project allegedly came to Raja Ram while he was thinking about making an album about his favorite drugs. Thus, their first, self-titled album featured 9 tracks about Ayahuasca, Hashish, Mescaline, LSD, Marijuana, Ecstasy, Magic Mushrooms, Salvia Divinorum and DMT. Not surprisingly, the tracks featured many quotes from Terence McKenna and samples from movies like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The album has been a big success, and 1200 Mics even released a "Marijuana" music video in 2003.

The second album, ''Heroes of the Imagination'', was dedicated to famous inventors and scientists, including Leonardo Da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, Michael Faraday, Albert Einstein, Charles Babbage, Albert Hofmann, Francis Crick, James D. Watson, and Tim Berners-Lee. This album also contains the 2003 party hit, "Acid for Nothing", a trance remix of Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing" (the track also replaced the phrase "I want my MTV" with "I want my LSD").
