The city of Kiev (Kyiv) is both the capital and the largest city of Ukraine.Ukraine is a unitary state composed of 24 oblasts (provinces), one autonomous republic (Crimea), and two cities with special status: Kiev, its capital, and Sevastopol, which houses the Russian Black Sea Fleet under a leasing agreement.
Psychedelic music showed up in Ukraine in the mid-1990s. In 1996 Sergey Tovstoluzhsky (RIP), also known as DJ Yehuanah, was the first DJ who started to play psychedelic trance in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. He introduced this music to DJ Pubert who became the first successful Ukrainian psy-party organizer.
In co-operation with DJ Tolya, Pubert promoted psy-trance in the radio project Misyachni Trombony (Lunar Trombones) on a Kiev’s local radio station. In the same time the first psy-events began to pop up in Kiev and with time psychedelic rhythms rushed to the South – via Odesa to the magical Crimea peninsula. Besides, in 2000 the second fully psy-trance oriented FM radio project Ohm was founded in Odesa by SOAP SS.
