Olli Wisdom Space Tribe – Tribute Show


Oliver John Wisdom (8 March 1958 – August 2021)Olli Wisdom Space Tribe - Tribute

was a British Goa and psy trance musician, and clothing producer, who resided in London. From the 1990s he recorded under the name Space Tribe.

Career in music

In the early 1980s Wisdom was the singer in the theatrical glam and gothic rock group Specimen, and co-founded and ran The Batcave, London’s weekly goth club-night at the Gargoyle Club Before forming Specimen and opening the Batcave, Wisdom was the frontman for the punk band The Unwanted. Their most popular song was a cover version of Nancy Sinatra‘s “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’“. After the Unwanted, Wisdom joined Metroz for a few months.

Wisdom was a pioneer of psychedelic trance for many years. After Specimen split up, in 1986 he went travelling in Asia and in 1989 he came to Ko Pha-ngan in Thailand, where he first encountered the electro-driven wild psychedelic parties on the beach. He stayed there for two years DJing and set up a small studio to make tracks for the parties before moving to Goa, India.

Over the next four years, Wisdom spent his time mostly in Goa, but started to travel around DJing parties in other places (San Francisco, Switzerland, UK, Japan). In 1993, with his brother Miki, and Richmond, he started Space Tribe clothing in Bali. In 1995, the first Space Tribe tracks were hatched in the studio with Simon Posford (Hallucinogen/Shpongle).

Wisdom moved to the rainforest in Byron Bay in Australia and set up the Rainforest Space Base studio. Space Tribe released its first album, Sonic Mandala, on Spirit Zone in 1996. In 2004 Space Tribe Music was set up as a record label providing an outlet for Space Tribe releases and compilation albums. Space Tribe also made many tracks in collaboration with other artists such as Sirius Isness, X-DreamGMSMenogCPUPsywalker, and especially Electric Universe, working under the name ESP.

Wisdom travelled all over the world, playing live at parties in a variety of locations including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Chile, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Poland, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
