  1. I understand your interpretation of trance, but the sound was not at all similar to the other examples in the thread. I created a mix to show off these gems. Click my signature. While you're in the DJ promo section, check out Procyon's mix as well, that mix is awesome.
  2. Now that school is over for me, I got a chance to make a new mix. I've been digging and digging to find really thumping tech-trance tracks from around the 2001-2002 area. This isn't your Armin Van Buuren tech-trance, this mix packed full of dark, monstrous tech-trance beasts that will brutally murder those insignificant weaklings. auricular - pilzvergiftung [medium] hujaboy - counting spirals [hom-mega] wizzy noise - cyclotron [candyflip] x-dream - thorazin [d.drum] platform - zinger way [star jelly] cybered - silentium universi (remix) [moonflower] the delta - thing [d.drum] the delta - low level format [shaffel] x-dream - fall out (dong edit) [d.drum] k.u.r.o. - anion [psyristor trax] opsis - moving, drifting [zma] pps project - timer [hadshot haheizar] trimada - voices [mechanical dragon] right-click, save-as: Ziptnf - Inhuman Massacre (68:15) 125MB ~256kbps Enjoy! Disclaimer: The title of this mix was planned in advance to the tragedy in Norway, and is not referencing any sort of relation to the shootings. That shit sucks. This mix is about a gigantic monster. Look at that fucking thing.
  3. I'm sorry, but how is that trance at all? There is no 4x4 beats anywhere!
  4. To each his own! I will not have my mix ready until next month, I am still searching for proper tracks. But when I make it, I will PM you to remind you to listen!
  5. It should probably work very well with the tracks I have lined up, but we will see what my final decision ends up being. I'm still waiting on another CD to arrive and I need to keep digging to find some more excellent tracks. As far as the mixing goes, I don't agree with your statement that good mixing sounds boring. In instances where the genre is House or Techno and the mix just plods along with perfect transitions, I can see your point. But where you have a bundle of unique tracks that have a certain level of energy associated with them, dropping the flow or screwing up a beatmatch is detrimental to the entire mix. Trust me, I've screwed up my mixing in plenty of mixes I've released. It sounds terrible when a transition gets ruined. That doesn't "give the mix more character", it makes it sound bad in my opinion. I love to drink a beer and smoke some weed when I'm mixing, and I still place a large amount of importance on how each transition sounds. You can still make it "surgically lasered by a robot from the future" and still make your mixing unique and energetic, especially with these tracks. Look out for my try in the next couple of months. If I blow some transitions, you can give me hell!
  6. Some of these tracks were total monsters: haunting, scary, thumping tech-trance beasts. Others were more trancey and less pounding but still fit the theme. They were all very nice tracks, with the exception of the last one (in my opinion). The flow of the set was pretty nice, but I must say I preferred the first half. Unfortunately, the mixing here is kinda bad. I can't really blame you, because I'm sure these tracks are tough to blend well together, but you had a few beatmatching issues as well. I'm planning one of these mixes myself! I was going to use the Hujaboy track but since you already played it, I'll find something else Nice mix, man, keep it up!
  7. I like watching basketball, especially NCAA and the NBA. I also was a swimmer, so when swim events are televised I usually watch them.
  8. Holy cow, you're like the tech-trance king! Those were all great tracks you posted, and I'm probably going to buy those two albums off discogs. Any other suggestions? Some of these tracks are absolute monsters and I can't wait to check them all out.
  9. Good suggestion. I also like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGq_bLln9nA Any more ideas?
  10. When I think of tech trance, I think of this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pe3DQjsJ80 This isn't quite as dark as those other tracks though, and a bit less emphasis on the techno part. Here's a dark techno track with less psy. I want a happy medium. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gjzxqi5WKa4
  11. You all know exactly what I'm talking about. The Delta - Thing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4sRBja6Hho X-Dream - Fall Out (Dong Version) Dark Soho - The 14th etc. There has to be more.
  12. It's not really psy, unless you want to consider variation "psychedelic". The last track is from the OP.
  13. Thanks! Man, with sites like that, 1400 tracks in the playlist, I'd need hours upon hours to go through each! I got a few of these tracks from chipmusic.org
  14. I threw together a chiptune mix. Check it out heeeeere: http://www.tranceaddict.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=602900&forumid=73
  15. Not really psytrance, but delicious 8-bit goodness. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG_Vx-1Sy0o
  16. I recently discovered this track, which takes advantage of the loveliness of simple squares and other 8-bit music synths. Is there anything else in the psytrance scene that does the 8-bit thing well? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVLv2daKPOQ&hd=1 What about just regular 8-bit music?
  17. Hey man, I listened, and this is pretty nice. Mixed well, and the tunes were lush. They didn't try too hard, and the set had a solid flow. Good work.
  18. This mix is a wonderfully weird interpretation of suomi trance. I've always considered this genre to be filled with tracks that can't exactly be classified into specific genres. Suomi doesn't really follow the same rules that the rest of psytrance does. In some cases I preferred the genre confusion of other tracks over "traditional" suomi. If you're expecting this set to flow all nice and purdy, you're in the wrong thread. Synthetic Science is always changing speeds, styles, and moods. Those who make it through the last two tracks will have beaten the final boss of all my mixes Tipper - Open The Jowls (VIP Mix) [Tippermusic] Artifakt - The Runner [Organik Media] M.E.E.O. - Wilder Beast [Mental Sauce] Circuit Bent - Into The Outpsyde [Morning Monster Records] Outolintu - Human Boing [Faerie Dragon Records] Shiwa 2000 - Hyppypiertari [Hippie Killer Productions] Haltya - Rainbow Funkster [Exogenic Record] Weblet - People Juice Eater [Morning Monster Records] Siaqua - Bring it Again [Morning Monster Records] Chromatone - Dub Divider [Nano Records] Texas Faggot - Back To Mad [Exogenic Records] Crazy Astronaut - Breakdown [Osom Music] Strahlenkater - Mathematischer Fehler [Mitnal Records] Lullaby & Goodnight - Experimento Concerto [Mitnal Records] Ziptnf - Synthetic Science (87:26) 160MB ~256kbps
  19. I'll check those out, thanks. I've already heard Sibilant - Proper Filth, but the sound didn't fit with this particular mix.
  20. Wait, so if you don't like Justin Beiber, you're narrow minded? That's some fucking stupid logic right there.
  21. I'm not aiming it at you at all, I'm aiming it at your mindset. The second part is exactly what you said, it is the case where a fanbase may not appreciate the new direction an artist is taking, but it seems that dismissing their new sound without giving it a chance can be closed minded. This is only for specific cases, when talented artists use their old influences to improve their sound rather than change it completely. However, sometimes, artists change their perspective so drastically that it just doesn't fit with their old crowd at all. I don't think Ticon made the right choice in going almost purely electro, but that was their decision, and they abandoned their old fanbase for a new one. That's just the way the music industry goes. The Black Eyed Peas used to do old school, Brooklyn-style hip hop, but now they're doing electro-pop for the brainless masses. That's why I said there are tons of artists out there that are making music that you would enjoy
  22. Not really. Who says that artists should follow a particular pattern when they want to change their sound? When an artist wants to evolve, they can use previous influences as well as current influences to develop a new identity. If an artist makes goa, then psy, then full-on, then goes back to goa, I think that's really limited with what they want to do with their creativity. I, for one, wouldn't be upset at all if they decided to make more progressive or techno influenced stuff, just because they are getting tired of the trippy, full power nonsense that they were into in the past. I think that is very closed-minded. Perhaps if PoF or Perfect Stranger starts doing more techno than psy, you may not like it, but keep in mind that there are hundreds of artists out there that are probably producing music you like. Artists produce music that they like and they hope their fans might like. If they don't, they don't have to listen, no honor lost. But dismissing it because it's not psy is very stubborn in my opinion. Don't dismiss the artist just because they don't keep making goa or psy over and over again for 8 albums straight.
