  1. First off I have to say that the Trolls, Staffan and Jani, are pretty good friends of mine, so I might be biased to say anything about them. I have always rated their music quite high, and it just keeps getting better.

    I am actually a bit surprised it isn't more popular already. Here in Finland they are quite successful act in the Psy scene... or have been for some years already actually. I hope all the best for them :)

  2. Sadly enough, I said it would be my one and only post in the thread, but I can not restrain myself after reading RTP's post.


    RTP: Did you know that the BPM Counter of the most cd players that you find on any parties are just as accurate or even MORE accurate than the one in any program that you have out there? Oh, and you will concur with: Yeah but a good dj does not look at the counter of the player... they ALL do. Its not what you use as your tool when you play out to people that counts, its the result, isnt it? If a dj is a good dj with his laptop and effects, then hes a good dj, if he sucks, he sucks... the same goes for the DISC player i am afraid ;)


    And like I said before, I still use Vinyl a lot, because I love the touch... but I am for sure as hell not going to be a an old git and a conservatist (yeah I know that word does not exist), because the future will kill (not like taking your lives) the likes of you.



    As nemo said, the result counts. Ofcourse I have a huge respect for people who can mix well, just as I respect choosing the right track for the right moment at a party. But what it all comes down to is the result... not how you got there. The same thing applies to pretty much any form of art. Art doesn' t have to be difficult to be good...

  3. Well.. hard to say really.. My parents once cruised by an openair party in a park here in Helsinki. The party was organised by my bro, kolibri. My mom really liked it... She tought it reminded her of her own youth, so it really gave her good vibes. She's an ex flower girl, so no wonder.. I' m not too sure about my dad tho.

  4. Yeah I agree! To me it seems that they just lean on other commercial albums that sell well (from other styles I mean) and imitated them to look commercial or professional. Which they do but at the same time they are also very boring so I doubt that strategy will be successfull.

    Exactly How I feel :)

  5. As I've allready said about Antic's comment, that's an explanation that makes sense to me. :)


    But in the end good-looking is a matter of taste too. A lot of covers posted in this thread are imho an outcome of that mentality that labels/artists want to sell. Like the Spliff It Up cover or the Talamasca cover, boring standart "art"-work not linked too much with psyculture anymore. I'm still a sucker for covers with phantasy and multi-colored stuff.

    Yes, you are absolutely right that good looking is a matter of taste. I also like the multi colored covers atleast in Psy/Goa. I think those reflect the music quite well sometimes. And as I stated, I always respect effort. With the Spliff it up and Talamasca covers I find it hard to think that they have put a lot of effort in these covers... Those both ideas have been seen on hundreds of covers before. Nothing new, nothing "own", nothing I find attractive. Even if they want to attract bigger crowds, they need to stand out. They are competeing with a even bigger bunch then.

  6. This makes you look like you're into psy for the coolness and underground factor and not because of the music. Way to go... :P;)

    Im not that much into psy at all anymore as it has been ages since I bought an psy album. I couldn' t care less for underground or coolness factors either... It's not some show off thingy. I enjoy good art, and in my eyes, it really affects the whole product, a bit like antic also explained. The covers don' t necessarily have to be good according to my taste, but I' d like to see SOME effort in making them and not something that my grandmother would be able to produce in Photoshop. Ofcoure the music might be good without good covers, but I find that that I really struggle to buy the ones that look like shit. Ofcourse me working in the graphics field may also affects how I wiew these things. And as antic said, I like to look at my collection too :)


    The way I see it is: if you do anything, do it good. Why make a superb album and wrap it up in something that looks awful... Let' s not kid our selves here.. these are not some underground and cool albums that are passed around among a small group of people anymore. These are albums that people and labels actually want to sell! First impression is very important for a lot of people. If you want to stand out and actually sell the album I think that a good looking cover will help a lot more than an ugly one. ;)

  7. His IP was banned because Radi was banned and still tricked his way into posting on psynews.

    So why reduce the restrictions on his ban? So he can trick his way into posting again? If he does that again, it will be worse for him.


    Generally (with an exception or 2) banned members came under new nicknames/IPs to post. That's not the purpose of a ban.

    You are very cute when your that strict :)
