    Somehow...I feel better in a way. Not entirely personally but for reading the stance of someone leagues more musically successful than I will ever be who took a step back and jotted down much needed notes.

    This is so true. Waaay too many people (myself included for a while) get caught up in the rat race and end up losing the spirit that got them into music in the first place.

    Saw it yesterday on FB, pretty touching. It is the sentiment that most club dj's on the grind have. It's all about your web presence, good music doesn't really matter any more. Pretty sad.

    YEP!

    I know a lot of REALLY talented Psytrance producers here in South Africa that have 'made it big' in the world of Psy.
    They too have kind of given up on the 'whoring yourself out on FB' and other social media platforms and suffer due to it.

    Sad...they struggle to get gigs locally, but internationally they do freaking well. Sucks...

    it would be nice to get the local gigs and just get by running a cafe or something on the side that way we can truly enjoy the hippie lifestyle that is trance
