Mind field was formed in London around 1992 by musicians John Ford & Simon Carman and pioneering Goa Trance DJ’s Mark
Allen and Chrisbo, then resident DJ’s at their seminal London Party Pagan. They played at Return To The Source, Megatripolis,
Space Hopper and many other genre defining parties and events of the early UK Goa trance scene, releasing a string of classic
12” vinyl releases and CD tracks such as Lets Get Stoned & Watch The Freaks and Odyssey Of The Mind, and
finally a double CD album collecting their tracks from ’94-’99.
Mark and Chrisbo left around ’96 to work as Quirk and Medicine Drum, leaving John & Simon to run their enormously influential
Phantasm and Psychic Deli imprints which featured the earliest output of some of the scenes most talented artists, many of
whom are among the most popular psytrance artists around today.
Sadly, Simon died in 1997 after a battle with leukaemia leaving John to
fly the Mind field flag at numerous parties & festivals
worldwide such as Universo Parallelo, XXXPerience, Neverland, Indian Spirit, Full Moon etc.. until the present day as well as
appearing in the worlds best clubs such as Club A in Sao Paulo, Comfort 13 and The Block in Tel Aviv, Difer Ariake in Tokyo,
Heaven in Seoul, Ministry Of Sound in London, Backyard In Ko Pha Ngan etc.. and continuing to record as Mindfield as well as
some memorable collaborations with Dickster, Mad Maxx, and Cosmosis among others, including with his son, psytrance legend
