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! :)
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.
I guess Goa/Psy Trance is under ground pretty much everywhere, except maybe in Goa itself (I've never been there) and I have to agree that goa is more or less dead right now - it's a pity, but hey, at least it was alive for a few years and we can still listen to the goldies from back then.
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.
