I listen for any SoundCloud DJs and then go find the artists from the set that they play. Sometimes, the music I find is so obscure, that it's not listed anywhere and I find it on some Russian forum on the 20th page of Google. This stuff sounds pretty good. I like to analyze the music and sometimes, it's literally a switch of melody and beat every 10 seconds, but it's a clean switch. Keeps ya going! :)

A few more good psy artists are 1200 Mics, Sounds of Syndicate, Astrix, Audialize and Azax Syndrom.


I know, MTV is usually associated with the most popular music today. Although I've heard Green Nuns of the Revolution, I wouldn't have thought that they'd be that popular.

Yup, 'Tales of the Inexpressible' is definitely an excellent album (it's their second one), as is 'Are You Shpongled' (their first one). Although it was made by Simon Posford, the man behind 'Hallucinogen' (my avatar is the second album of 'Hallucinogen', 'The Lone Deranger'), I wouldn't exactly consider it trance music, but in my book it's really trippy, beautiful electronic music.


I heard that even the Goa scene has gone underground in Goa itself. I believe it was because the cops finally cracked down on the drug use. Shpongle seems to do a variety of genres, but it's still excellent music. When I'd listen to anthem sets, I'd find a good song maybe once every couple of sets, but only because they stood out a bit from the rest of the blaring saw synths with the plucked synth breakdowns. Here you can find a lot of great music. The complexity compared to pop trance is just on a different level with many of the songs.

My bad, I thought that Shpongle is Psychedelic Trance with a mix of Goa.. :)

I also got that "Hallucinogen - The Lone Deranger", but I always pick "Dorset Perception" almost every time when I wanna try new headphone or equipment; I just love the song so much.. :D

Well, he does mix eastern sounds with western beats or even the other way around. He might be psybreaks sometimes, so you are partially correct. His style is just so "everywhere" (in a good way), it's hard to tell.

I will post a couple of records from the day. No descriptions but they are in descending order of how I like them.

Wow, I find that hard copies of music, especially vinyls, feel more satisfying than digital copies of songs. I didn't think that vinyl sleeves could look so trippy ;)
