Swedish psych outfit Hashish, headed by Subliminal Sounds honcho Stefan Kéry, bring us their debut full-length A Product Of. If the clever combination of album title and band name doesn’t imply a kaleidoscopic experience, then fear-not; from start to finish the record provides, or perhaps provokes, a dream-funk out-of-body journey. 
Opener ‘Bliss’ begins with the calming pulsing of ocean waves, feeding slowly into modulating synths and doing so sounds like the beginning of some New Age meditative retreat. Indeed, this effect remains throughout but thankfully is explored through less ambient avenues. Repetition is one of the key trance-inducing effects employed by the band, as with the looping of funk-infused bassline and yodelling flutes that hark back to late-Sixties experimental jazz on ‘Fly Away’. This track continues the therapeutic energy of the opener, with a soft vocal lead assuring us to ‘Touch the sky, you’re beautiful’. 
Things aren’t angelic for long however, and take a dark and abstract turn as the muddy, Kraut synths of tracks like ‘The Light’, ‘Revel’ and ‘Outer Spaced’ come into play. 
But interestingly, whilst the up-beat drive of funk has been often been used as an energetic counterpart to the stupefying chaos of psychedelia, Hashish layer elements of lounge-jazz to weird effect. Indeed the biggest but welcomed surprise of the record is its closer ‘The Light pt. 2’, which is reminiscent of Bonobo with its jazzy snare rolls and soundtrack-esque emotive chord progressions. 
A Product Of treads the line between music and musak very finely, and perhaps borders too close to the latter at times, but this is of course done consciously given that the record seems to have a dissociative agenda….By JOHN BELL…~


The label says: “The long awaited debut album from Hashish This is top notch psychedelia that both challenges the genre and takes it to a whole new level. Inspired by the 60s and 70s psychedelic scene and by creating the perfect combination of retro baselines and kraut drums layered with an all over crisp electronic lounge sound, Hashish has managed to create a record that is both genre crossing, experimental and top modern. Hashish is the finest kind of occult Scandinavian psychfunk, a project that by some has been said to pick up what GOAT started. “A Product Of Hashish” could go hand in hand with Salvador Dalís dream sequence in Spellbound. It could be a sibling to Bulgakows The Master And Margarita or Stanley Kubricks 2001 Space Odyssey. The album is a dream inspired way of expressing and expanding the mind. Call it psychedelic, call it conceptual or arty. When everyone is throwing todays reality back in it’s face, or stripping off social problems and injustice in our society, Hashish is a dream to escape into. Hashish is the answer. 

”Hashish sound like the lovechild between a 70s soft porn soundtrack composer and a wide-eyed teen experiencing hallucinogens for the first time” ”Get ready to feel like dropping some acid and going bowling” – Noisey/Vice/UK
”. Welcome to tomorrow. The sounds transport you into a forgotten world where the future looked different from what it became. On his soft subtle island capped with clouds of cool fire, Pan weaves his teachings with the wind and the sun. Raining sacred melodies on the hearts and minds of man, driving him with desperate loves and yearnings by songs of Sainthood and madness. Transient temples of the flesh, laughing at death, clothes our lives in fire. On rippling altars of skin we sensual magicians worship bright burning desire…..Subliminal Sounds …..~


After last years 7" the Swedish Prog-Rock-Band HASHISH are finally releasing their debutalbum now. “A Product Of” is a thrilling trip into the depth of the 60/70s. It comes on CD (COLLINE NOIRE) and LP (WOAH DAD!). Psychedelia and Progressice, mixed with a fairly touch of Afrofunk and a lot of Groove. This ingrediants form the base for this awesome release from sweden. Supported by full synthsizer soundscapes and vocoder effects the band manages to create a sureal appearing album with a great retro-charm. HASHISH mastermind Stefan Kery, who is known as the labelowner of the swedish psych label SUBLIMINAL SOUNDS, held his hands firmly over this project. Altogehter (lyrics, sounds, videos) an experimental, krautrock-like, occult album emerged. This one is definetely “outer space”. HASHISH easily combined all this so genuine that they can hardly be distinguished from the originals 40 years ago…..~



The long awaited debut album from Hashish. Top class psychedelia that definitely takes the genre to a new level with a sophisticated approach to an afro-funk groove accompanied by dreamy and playful melodies that goes by a spectrum from Scandinavian Occult Psychedelia to Minimal Synth and Surreal Electronic Soul Disco with rare groove. Hashish is a project that has been described by some to pick up what Goat started, this is not the time to sleep kiddies! Welcome to tomorrow. The sounds transport you into a forgotten world where the future looked different from what it became. On his soft subtle island capped with clouds of cool fire, Pan weaves his teachings with the wind and the sun. Raining sacred melodies on the hearts and minds of man, driving him with desperate loves and yearnings by songs of Sainthood and madness. Transient temples of the flesh, laughing at death, clothes our lives in fire. On rippling altars of skin we sensual magicians worship bright burning desire….~
