In 1988 Steve Angstrom founded TimeShard, noted as innovators in the UK electronic dance underground during the 'second summer of love' in 1989. Steve's band became known as one of the UK's first live 'acid house' acts, and during this time they developed a sound which became known as Psychedelic trance although at the time they described it as "Shamanic Trance" . A name derived from their interest in using the music, and the trance in a more directed and "magical" way than their peers. Timeshard's music found success UK's free-festival circuit, which was in a period of transition and fusion as acid house fans found a place to dance without restriction, outside mainstream club culture. Steve and TimeShard built a devoted following among the mixture of punks and Acid House followers which flocked to Britain's free festivals fields during this period. Gradually, their live show expanded outwards and across Europe, while their sound gained elements of ethno-techno, trance and dub. Timeshard also gained attention for their self-released, cassette-only albums, Who Pilots the Flying Saucers in 1991 and Hyperborean Dome Temples of Apollo the following year. In 1994, Planet Dog signed the group and released Crystal Oscillations and the trio's second full album, Hunab Ku, appeared in 1996. Touring and performing constantly from 1989 to 2001 Steve moved away from live performance, but now is back after digging through his vaults and discovering hidden treasures, his unreleased works which were recorded in snatched moments but never released. Recovered Artifacts 93 – 97, soon on Sleepers Records.
