Heads up, Dead-heads! Special (very) limited edition vinyl of an extremely trippy entry in GD history, repressed on bonkers vinyl for your general bewilderment. Don't sleep on this one.


Ken Kesey’s Ultra Rare 1966 studio recording of the 'Acid Test' with The Grateful Dead originally released in 1966.

+ Very limited, Indie shop only version LP, pressed on transparent 'highlighter yellow'. 

The legendary documentation of the 1965-66 Bay Area 'Acid Test' scene from 14 hours of the actual trip (recorded in a studio). 

Lots of amazing mind games and word play with Ken Kesey and Ken Babbs in good form, ad-libbed poetry, fractured harmonica solos, tape loops and the Grateful Dead lurking in the background. Originally released in March 1966.

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
