MEGATRIPOLIS BENEFIT FOR FRASER CLARK – 13 November 2008 at Heaven, London.
Chief zippie dude and grandfather of Luminopolis, Fraser Clark, has recently been diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer and his time within this reality zone is possibly drawing to a close. A special one-off Megatripolis event will be held as a fundraiser for his specialist medical care. Full details will be published shortly. We ask all of you to come and support Fraser in his hour of need, and here’s why…
In the late 1980’s Fraser created the Encyclopaedia Psychedelica, a magazine dedicated to the zippie / hippy movement. In the early 1990’s he co-founded Megatripolis, the first major UK rave-orientated “festival in a club” thus paving the way for Luminopolis today. In the late 1990’s, he teamed up with the genius alternative theatre writer / actor / director Ken Campbell to create The Warp! – a 24 hour stage play within a 24 hour trance party.
The Warp! was based at The Drome – the cavernous tunnels under London Bridge Station – now known as seOne. After The Warp! finished, a number of the production crew went on to create The Synergy Project – now known as Luminopolis – based at seOne. So you see Fraser’s trailblazing has lead directly to the amazing parties that we run today – he is our spiritual grandfather.

ORCHID STAR – debut single Passion
Help Luminopolis / Synergy Project favourites Orchid Star chart their debut single Passion (and do good deed too)! The single comes off the back of both a critically acclaimed album release and hugely popular live tour during the summer. The single edit features the highly talented “Rogue”… see her in the Passion video.
The band have strong principles and have therefore decided to donate 10% of all the sales of downloads to save the most precious of assets, our children via Save The Children. Every £1 donated makes a difference… so you will be doing a good deed for every download.
You can do something today that makes a difference… why not pre-order Passion and help a great record into the charts. Its only 79 pence per download. You can buy the single edit or any of the other remixes off the Archangel^ shop and each mix counts as a chart placing.
