One of the first progressive psytrance artists I listened to along with Liquid Soul. My journey and insatiable hunger for darker but blissfully atmospheric trance in the late 2000s led me to artists like these. Hector's older music is still ahead of ... See full review

There has got to be a smurf running around causing all the trouble. Time to get my mallet to squash the smurf into blue jelly.

I have a physical copy of this album but wondering if there only supposed to be be 9 tracks out of 10. The Psyshop website has the same thing listed, only 9 tracks but the 10th is greyed out.

posted a review of AudioStorm - Giant Industry. about 1 year ago
Giant Industry sounds like an old school 1990s classic thawed out for the modern age. It's a shining example of rare sounds that few electronic musicians still practice to this day.

Trance as a whole is not dead, just not the ones most "oldschoolers" are accustomed to. The progressive psytrance music of Ovnimoon (including his 3 Access & You collab), Mindwave, Motion Drive, and Zyce (including his Zyce and Flegma or the Vertex ... See full review

These guys were at the top of their psytrance game at one point of time. They took psytrance to insane limits that no other psytrance producers ever dared. Around 2011, they fell from chaotic grace to pursue a career in gimmicky production.
posted a comment on BT. over 4 years ago
BT is a well known pioneer of trance music of the 1990s. His focuses have changed around the mid-2000s, and certainly not always for the better. Just like many of his caliber (Armin Van Buuren as one example), his latest works reflect pursuing a life ... See full review

Another impressive work of Vertex. Somewhat a departure from their previous album, but still has plenty of atmospheric grooves in this one.

What happens when you combine the smooth grooves of deep house with atmosphere of progressive psytrance? You get this wonderful piece.

One of the most influential progressive trance artists within the psytrance scene. One of the earliest pioneers to establish deep atmospheric progressive psytrance, music evolved out of the minimalistic progressive psytrance of the early 2000s.

Justin Bieber, an artist? What have you been smoking? The only instrument Justin Bieber has ever used in most of his songs are his vocal cords, and is not something to brag about. The true "artists" would be Scooter Braun, and the numerous nameless ... See full review
posted a review of Motion Drive - Viewpoints. over 5 years ago
Motion Drive really outdid himself this time. This 2 x CD album may be his magnum opus yet. CD 1 features icy, deep, atmospheric psytrance...while CD 2 takes on more of an ambient and deep house approach. No tune is lacking in any stretch of the ... See full review

That is just it, PSY is Universal's hand puppet and this is what the pop music cartels want you to believe. This is what makes all EDM look like a joke, as kids music. This is what fuels the "snobbery" of EDM.

A great release. Even though this is more or less a "best hits" album, as this is the best BPC has to offer in this generation on a scene that bordering on existing and dying. The ol' mighty, driving, godly Goa trance with atmospheric synths, most ... See full review
posted a review of InnerSpace (2) - InnerSpace. over 6 years ago
5/5 Quality Goa trance. It's sounds may not be different from what has been done before, yet it still is a solid release. This album is actually self-titled as "InnerSpace", BTW.

Oh no yourma, the music is still being made a plenty. Suntrip Records is THE label for modern melodic Goa trance. This is where you find this kind of music.

Steve Aoki has the potential to break away from the electro hype and start producing hearty house music. Yet, he loves the retro hype of the 1980s too much so he can remain popular. As much as I love the '80s myself, the vibes have been done to death ... See full review

I thought it was hipsters and scene kids who love Skrillex's music.
