    Default Psy-Trance

    Hey guys

    So I've been listening to a chunk of psy-trance, and getting encouraged by a few people, who want to hear it more, to spin it. Was wondering if you guys could point me at some labels and artists that are really good, so I can get a start. I figure I'll be getting most stuff off of Beatport cause it's easier to find, and eMusic doesn't categorize their music very well.

    So yeah :-) Hope all is well

    The only artist I know of is Infected Mushroom. Not a big fan of the genre though. I like dramatic changing music .

    I've been getting a lot of comments of implementing more psytrance into my sets cause it could fit. And there's a HUGE psytrance scene around, whereas what I do is kinda limited.

    *shrug* Gotta do what the people are into

    Labelwise take a look at BNE/YOYO and Traffic.

    First of all, we need to know what type of Psytrance are you looking for? There is cheesy full on, good and hard South African Full On etc etc.

    I do not like any of the above mentioned artists to be honest, its ToyPsy for me

    I would recommend (and of course this is taste we are talking about here)

    Scorb
    OOOD
    Voice of Cod

    Listen to it, and then tell me if you like that Style.

    For Progressive Psy:

    Ace Ventura
    Perfect Stranger
    Behind Blue Eyes
    Ticon
    Son Kite
    Atmos (Awesome new album out now)
    Vibrasphere

    Almost anything released on Iboga Records is in my Liking, also check out the label Tribal Vision, very good Progressive label.

    If you want to dig deeper into the world of Psy, and know more about it, then you could visit forums like www.psynews.org or/and http://forum.isratrance.com/ also for the UK scene there is http://www.psymusic.co.uk/

    I find the reviews section on Psynews very good for a starter.

    lol, ToyPsy! Never heard it called that before - it is quite fun though so very apt, how about Broken Toy, Psysex or X-Noise?

    Scorb are VERY good, nasty dark stuff that it is... Paraforce, Noise Gust & E.V.P are also worth a listen if you like that direction

    The best site is the best I've found for finding new Psy is http://www.psyshop.com/ Don't think it does downloads but it's a good hub to find out what you're looking for when you go to other sites like beatport or trackitdown

    Nemo, you got any psy mixes you could post up?
