aka what happens when you give Belgians money.

 

I used to like Bonzai / Platipus style trance music. 1997 - 2000 (max) was a good era for the sound.

For me trance kinda spawned from the more upbeat ambient techno (Age of Love, Cygnus X) which then split into two, Goa Trance (later Psytrance) for the old hippes who liked to dance for free in muddy fields and the more commercial trance anthems for clubs [...]. Both avenues of 'trance' really haven't progressed musically since around 1999 imho.

Really?

late 90's Trance is the arse end of a doomed "scene", hence irrelevant, christ remember mid-90's Gratecrasher kids with fuckin facepaint a glowsticks?

 

trance with a small "t" is as old as humanity & the fact that term has been appropriated by such derivative wank, dayum, one of the more overt travesties of a universal experience

 

music should have the power to induce trance & to induce in a collective environment without recourse to demeaning Fluro, daft bpm mong-beats & crusty dreadlocks, is one of the finest realms humans can reach

 

giving bs scenes a label doesnt provide authenticity, ever

it's cuz acidhead homeless people who danced to goa didn't have the braincells left to listen to anything else. the people were too stoned to realize how aesthetically boring the whole thing had become.

(psytrance that is)

Have you changed your mind since you wrote the above, or was this some kind of aberration?

The best thing about this is that every related video confirms it perfectly.

re psytrance:

 

very popular at bush raves here (aka doofs). i agree that the synths are very interesting, and i get a sort of moving popup book vibe from all the melodic layers in psytrance which is very cool esp when tripping. however i find it too dry and cheesy overall, it kind of sounds silly to my ears. dark psy i absolutely despise, who wants to listen to that unnerving nonsense while strung out on acid? apparently a lot of people.

 

i'd be more into doof music if it were more earthy like boc and less dry and synthetic. probably something to do with how it translates to a dancefloor over a pa system i guess.

Interesting.. Yeah i hear and i wouldnt be tempted to dance to psytrance.. To md thst stuff is more suited for getting into a work flow, mental stuff, computer w headphones, doing mind numbing keybosrd tasks etc

Trance producers I know in Syd are not aware of how poor quality their tunes r because the bush doof scene has devolved them into addlepated simpletons in just a few short years

Trance has always been underrated imo. Yes, itz a borderline eurodance shit mostly but the way it influenced me when i was in my early teen yrs was nothing but spectacular. Traveling without moving!

wasn't expecting to see this here lol, Neil's catalogue speaks for itself

https://www.discogs.com/artist/591298-Nail-Tolliday

whole lp is so fkn good & Nottingham's finest did their own version of transcendence by distilling the deepest of deep house, fortunately Warp picked it up & personally still consider Strictly 4 Groovers one of the label's strongest releases, the Firenze track is sublime too

Just discovered this BBC essential mix from last year, full of classics from the dutch "golden era" 1998 - 2003 (ish).

A fun way to spend 2 hours if this sort of thing floats your boat.  A bunch of "progressive" remixes included by Ejeca who curated the mix.

On Saturday night I DJ'd at a house party, did roughly 3 hours of trance classics(all on vinyl, obviously) from the years 1997 - 2003.  Was amazing fun and those in attendance enjoyed it too - all attendee's roughly in the right age bracket to have enjoyed the music the first time around.

Luckily the guys who owned the house had hired in a pretty decent PA with subs so it sounded damn banging in there.  No neighbours for miles around and surrounded by forests.  I felt rotten driving home last night but surprisingly energised by the experience today!

Tunes that went down especially well:

Also;

Paris & Sharp - Aphrodite

James Holden - Nothing

Tilt - Children

Ayla - Ayla
