  • Summary

  • This series includes guests discussing their experiences with psychedelics. It is intended for mature audiences, for informational and entertainment purposes only. It should not be taken as medical advice. Psychedelics are illegal under US law and in other countries. You should talk with a doctor or therapist before starting any treatment, and any use of psychedelics should be done in a safe and legal way. Listener discretion is advised.

    Psychedelic Frequency takes listeners on an expansive, inward journey exploring the crossroads of sound, psychedelics, and wellness in this immersive, 10-episode series. Hosted by acclaimed hip-hop producer and recording artist Maejor, alongside co-host Natalie Ginsberg from the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), the series takes listeners deep into the world of psychedelic therapy, unpacking its history and introducing some of the world’s foremost experts on MDMA, Ketamine, Ayahuasca, Psilocybin, LSD, and DMT.

    The globetrotting series travels from Big Sur’s Esalen Institute for a holotropic breath workshop to Berlin’s psychedelic underground, a Los Angeles ketamine clinic, and Guatemala, where doctors are treating opioid dependency with the powerful hallucinogen, Ibogaine. Along the way, the series explores the entire taxonomy of the psychedelic experience, from the importance of set and setting to ego death, and how we synthesize these experiences to change the default setting within our minds.

    With its emphasis on sound, the series is also a dense and deeply personal exploration of the psychedelic experience from the POV of a bevy of recording artists who share their life-altering experiences with Maejor, including Jim James from My Morning Jacket, Belly, Nathaniel Rateliff, Dead and Company bassist Oteil Burbridge, as well as Coldplay producer Jon Hopkins.

    The series also features its own playlist of original music from Maejor, the recording artist Bi-Polar Sunshine, and Jared Gutstadt, tuned to the frequency of specific psychedelics to help the listener on their own inward quest.

  • Episode I: Intention
    Oct 12 2023

    We introduce the listener to the key concepts in the series. What is a psychedelic? What is psychedelic therapy and how to set yourself up for a successful experience by setting an “intention.” We do the same for the series. In addition, we breakdown the hierarchy of psychedelics by bringing the listener into a Ayahuasca ceremony with “New Yorker” writer Emily Witt. Finally, we discuss the power of micro-dosing and the safe consumption of psychedelics with multiplatinum hip hop artist and producer Belly who joins Maejor in conversation about psilocybin from his studio-aptly titled LSD in Los Angeles.

  • Episode II: Set and Setting
    Oct 12 2023

    We introduce the concept of set and setting as defined by Dr. Timothy Leary to the listener as one of the key components to a psychedelic experience. Set and setting really breaks down to who we are with and where we are can define the psychedelic experience for an individual.

    This conversation serves as a bridge into why we do psychedelics and the search for answers about the divine questions of life-GOD. This includes set and setting in the context of ritual. This is followed by a conversation with Brian C. Muraresku, author of the groundbreaking new book “The Immortality Key.” He posits that the Greeks and early Christians both used a substance similar to LSD in their rituals and how this may have lead to the creation of Western Civilization and Christianity.

Informative & entertaining- shame about FX

The informed/educated integration of psychedelics into our society on a medical, scientific, productivity, healing etc level imho is essentially for our continued growth as individuals and a species. This series does a fantastic job of exploring the history and potential of both synthetic and plant based/entheogenic psychedelics, which makes it such a shame that in many sections, every single speaker has certain words delayed/echoed to make it sound more ‘trippy’. There’s working with audio frequencies to enhance or cultivate the mood of the information presented, but it is done in such a cheesy and excessive manner that it detracts from, rather than enhancing the content. Given part of the goal of this series is to legitimise psychedelics and remove the stigma attached to it over the decades because of the War on Drugs etc, I just can’t understand why an apparently talented audio producer/mixer would manipulate the sound in such a cliche/stereotypical manner.

Stick with it, the content is absolutely essential listening for everyone imo, but just try to ignore the excessive use of delay/reverb to make it sound more ‘trippy’ (trippy… trippy… trippy…)

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
