Slum - Sunflowers of today
The headlining song from this years album, very sick. Even though the album is less strong than his first one (still my fav. psy trance of all time) slum still burns some serious ass.

New vids of Slum playing somewhere in Japan:




And one of the headlining songs from the last album:


Check it out you'll like it
PS you can watch it in hq on youtube

Slum rocks

In other news...



THE ATARI.S - ORIGINAL PIRATE MATERIAL EP
01 :: Sound System Speaking (8:03)
02 :: Bitcrusher (7:13)
03 :: Torque Of The Devil (7:08)

The Original Pirate Material EP features three blistering tracks by The Atari.s, a Mexican psytrance group signed to Phantasm Records. Their high-energy full-on style is similar to that of Eskimo, Cycle Sphere, and Bliss; expect to hear hard kicks, bold bass lines, sharp acid riffs, and explosive crowd-pleasing breakdowns. In addition, Original Pirate Material also features elements of contemporary electro and breakbeat music. The resulting blend is primed and ready to rock the dance floor.

It's funny but I never really paid attention to this thread until now. I've put up psy a few times on the web radio and too many times ppl bolt. I love a lot of psy but I get the impression many do not. It would be great to have more psy on, but if the listeners go down to zero, then it sends a clear message to me. I wonder if there's a workaround to this.

It depends on the type of psy being played. As I've mentioned numerous times in this thread, the stuff I've found most accessibly is psy along the lines of what John '00' Fleming plays. It grabs the trance heads in, that's for sure.

There are a lot of sub-genres within Psytrance. Some of them are pretty easy-listening and accessible to lots of people, other stuff can be very grating and abrasive, especially for people who are not used to it.

If your tossing on 150BPM night-time full-on Psytrance with loads of squelchy-madness to a group of people who have never heard it before - chances are most of them are gunna be running for cover :P

I think being open to a genre of music that often gives off an "expand your mind" vibe is hard for alot of people to commit to. I also think an enjoyment for psy helps if you are spiritualesque (for lack of a better term).

If you aren't open to or don't buy into these types of ideas, psy ain't for you.

Even with an open mind, the full on stuff can be hard to grasp. As with all music when you start listening to it for the first time, it all sounds the same. It takes time and a slow appreciation of a specific genre before you start noticing the nuances.

A lot of not EDM people pigeon hole all of EDM into one genre because they can't tell it all apart. This isn't to say they aren't open minded. Their experience of it is limited, and thus their ideas about it reflect this.

Hence if you ease into it a bit more (ie have a nice progression from the more softer melodic psygressive sound into the more full on stuff), more people will hang around. If it's mixed well, they won't even notice it's gone full on.

A great example of this is John '00' Fleming's mix CD he did for IDT magazine back in something like '03 or '04: "A Journey Into Psytrance". It starts out wonderfully mellow with Son Kite - Let Us Be and ends up fairly full on with Infected Mushroom - Cities Of The Future.

I have a bit of a love/hate with Psytrance. It was the first genre of EDM that I really geeked out over / really got "into". I had a passing curiosity with EDM for awhile, then heard Juno Reactor and got hooked.

When I was really into it - I loved the super hard/fast/squelchy stuff and had the attitude of "the harder and faster the better", but got burnt out on it after awhile and eventually genre-hopped over to techno

I still like Psy now and then when it's done well, but even having a previous soft-spot for the really crazy stuff - I can't get into it as much anymore. And, if I do end up getting into it - it's from a progression from the more mellower elements.

I think that some of the full-on stuff almost seems to have become a parody of itself of "how fast/hard/many layers of squelches/tripped out sounds/voice samples of the red queen can we toss into this mix at once?!"

Walking onto the Eclipse dance floor at 3am and hearing peak-time full-on madness after napping for the past couple of hours sends me running off to the alternative stage :P But, the chuggier sounds that come up with the sun can keep me moving with a smile on my face well into the mid afternoon.

Psytrance has more sub-genres than you can shake a stick at and is a rather large blanket-term for an entire scene/culture and when people hear the word "Psytrance", they tend to either instantly associate it with trance-trance. Or, they think of the super hard/fast/squelchy stuff which is not always the easiest to get into.

For me though, the best way to experience Psytrance is getting a good nights rest, waking up nice and early and dancing as the sun comes up until late in the afternoon :P

Writeup has me curious, I'll need to check it out when I get in from work - thanks.


Heh, I remember at Eclipse this year trying to sleep through most of the 2nd night, and the friend that was with me starts to bitch "We didn't come all the way up here to sleep through the night" - he didn't fully grasp just how late into the afternoon things go.

Grudgingly, I woke up and headed to the main stage, and think at that time I was treated to the soothing sounds of GMS (I think?), *laugh*, ah - thank god for a cozy hammock by the river at the alternative stage down below

It reads like a Casey Kasem radio dialogue. I laughed.
