Ektoplazm is proud to present Organic Circuitry, our first official compilation release. Compiled by DJ Basilisk, Organic Circuitry features an eclectic assortment of songs contributed by friends and allies around the world, many of whom have already appeared in the free music section of the Ektoplazm web site. Conceived as a celebration of the vibrant diversity of the global psychedelic trance underground, Organic Circuitry features an exotic blend of new school Goa trance, fat and funky full-on, pumping progressive, and deeply enchanting downtempo. Although differing in their approach, the songs of Organic Circuitry are united in their common emphasis on the power of melody to convey ideas and emotions. Every track shimmers with colour and light—fantastic stories waiting to be told. To ensure a professional level of quality, Organic Circuitry has been mastered by Colin Bennun @ the Stooodio, Bristol, UK, and features cover artwork by Paul Zulauf.

OOOD have been creating their own unique brand of psytrance since 1994. The first OOOD album aLIVE was released on Cabbaged Records (UK) in 1997 and was probably the first ever live album released as a debut by a psytrance act. A stunning exposition of the unique psychedelic sound of OOOD, the album was recorded live at parties across the UK including Pagan’s fabled New Years Eve party, Science Fiction and Otherworld at the Fridge in London. True to the authentic spirit of mid-nineties Goa trance, aLIVE is an exuberant combination of dazzling old school melodies, sizzling acid lines, and upbeat rhythms. Enjoy this blast from the past—free of charge!

Attractive Synthesis is the second full-length album from Tsabeat (Elad Weinberg), an Israeli psytrance producer also known for his work as Sattel Battle. Released by Postunder Records, Attractive Synthesis gathers nine squelchy, elastic, pumping, playful, and bouncy tunes made by Tsabeat and several co-conspirators. Combining freeform Finnish psytrance with darkpsy and full-on influences, Tsabeat has crafted a riotous sound designed to shake up the dance floors of the world.

Anakoluth’s clean technical style has already won the respect of fans around the world, and with this release he exhibits an evolution in both sound production and musical arrangement. This release has been mastered by Colin Bennun @ the Stooodio, Bristol, UK.

Oliver Prime and perhaps Vibrasphere. That's about all I know. You might wanna check out Oliver Prime's playlists, find stuff you like, look at other stuff by the same artists, look for other sets by them, etc.

So I think that I've decided that I seriously love the more progressive side of Psy.
Can anyone give me some recommendations?
There are two sides to this coin: the more pumping side of progressive psytrance (FREq, Tegma, Ace Ventura, NASA, Gaudium, Andromeda, Magnetrixx, Symphonix, Bitmonx, and El Zisco) and the kind of progressive psytrance that bleeds into progressive house and minimal techno (Perfect Stranger, La Baaz, Duca, Flowjob, Fiord/Antix, Extrawelt/Midi Miliz, Son Kite/Minilogue, Motion/Solead, and Tomic). And that's just for starters...

Thanks for the suggestions. Ill have to take some time to narrow down the artists that I really like. Psy is kind if a side-interest, while my usula musical focus is house/progressive
Thanks again and ill post sets that I find that match what I'm talking about!
Speaking of Perfect Stranger, they were the guestmix on GTG for January. Very progressive.
