Shpongles album Tales of the Inexpressible is worth checking out. It is Psychedelic Trance music with a strong emphasis on acoustic, world music and ethnic styles. Don't think its anything like what you typically think of "psy-trance" it is very different. 

 

Wow!! Amazing!

For whatever reason I'd just taken your post as writing off electronic music in general, like putting it into a modern style - must be shallow/crap like I've seen sometimes on the web.

 

Is it the march-hare that makes me seem like a fogey, or the use of the word snooty?
Gee, man, I can be hip. Down with the kids, chillin', groovin' and all that jazz :p

 

I don't know why I never warmed to trance music, I just never did. House and trance has always been more my thing. Heavy, dark and dirty.
