About Timeshard

Time Shard were innovators in underground UK electronic dance music from 1988 to 2000

During their first five years Gobber, Psi and Angstrom became known as one of the UK’s first live ‘acid house’ acts, during this time they developed a sound which (later) became known as Psychedelic trance although at the time they were often described as producing Ambient or Shamanic Trance music.

Their signature sound of analogue synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines overlaid with glissando guitars and an electric sitar player made them a legendary live act in clubs and festivals throughout the 90s.

TimeShard released four studio albums and one live album. Releasing Crystal Oscillations, Hunab Ku and Zero on Planet Dog records.  

These last three were re-released in 2021 in expanded editions.
