  1. Tomasz almost had me convinced to jump on a plane and come to this....hehe... I hope you guys have fun tonight...new echoplex tracks rock and i've got a feeling I'll be seeing you in less than a month
  2. I'm just wondering if anyone has seen Jan Mueller of X-Dream play at a party recently. I'm curious as to what kind of music he's playing these days, particularly in his dj sets. Recently has anyone heard him play an old school x-dream set or is he mostly playing electro with vocals these days? Is he mostly playing club venues or is his music what ppl would want to hear at an outdoor party? at night, in the morning, or during the day? Discuss.

  7. mwahaha...will be there in full force.... this party is going to rock! ...and what about the dude playing the morning set...who's he?
  8. ahhh...i like the samples....i just don't understand why everything in this style must be so FAST these days... this sounds interesting to me.....
  9. All of the above...evenly spread. Any other way just bores me. You're missing a chillout option tho
  10. Hello, I'm going to be putting together an interview for Yab Yum (Peak Records) aka Ajja and Gaspard for a website here in the US as they will be coming here next month to play...I will of course also post it on here. I was wondering if maybe you guys could help me out a bit with some questions or ideas for things I could ask them about....thanks!
  11. new recruit!!!! mwahahaha!
  12. Nick's a friend of mine...not sure he's on this forum, but I'll pass along the link to this thread to him....
  13. What would be an example of Neurofunk?
  14. Its funny to see this same conversation show up on the N. American psy mailing list, so I thought i'd post some of the descriptions here... Neuro is the east coast slang for Trauma trance.. it's the same thing, just called different on the other side of the country... The thing is, everyone's getting caught up in the speed war, not really my cup of tea, but if people are making 170 + shit, I could probably get away with 1 or 2 over 150... Hell, I've got a couple with some us friends here that are 161 & 166... They don't get played too often, but if ever the need happens where it will fit, I'll play it... the thing is you never know what people will respond to unless you feel them out. Oh and the reason people refer to it as Neuro trance was taken from Suria's Dark Side of the Sun cd. The second disk was supposed to be this cutting edge neurotrance, as it was promoted.... listening to it again recently, it really didn't have anything in common with what is now being interpreted under that name. I think also a russian comp called it that too... ~~~~~ I find it funny that everyone keeps thinking up names for this stuff..... I always called it the hard shit, or aggressive nightime music... of course there's varying degrees of hard... but for the most part it's pretty much very very different then what Chemical Crew is releasing or has released... I find a lot of what you guys refer to as neuro or trauma trance or whatever it'll be called next week to have a little more chaoticness than your typical ask and answer big melody riff stuff... Maybe the focus is more toward frequencies than than melody, but I'd say that if you really want to look into the differential of these musics, you need to go to an event where you can actually hear whats going on and feel why they are different... ~~~~~ I have never heard of "Neuro" trance. "Trauma", yes. I'm sure they're kinda the same thing. Pretty much most of the San Francisco producers create this style of music. It seems that Alien Mental, Xyla and others seem to hover around 150bpm, if not faster. I've heard Xyla play a song that she grinned and told me was, "172!" Hardcore, psycore, same thing basically. When you get into speed territories like that, me no likey. In my old age, I've slowed down to like MAXIMUM 147bpm, and I like slow all the way to ambient. No hip hop tho. Mubali and Ghreg on Earth (imo) seem to steer clear of this trend (but maybe not, I haven't heard them in a while), and focus on dark, hard stuff. Mubali is amazing for nighttime hard music, and Ghreg is likened to Industrial music (the good ol' stuff, not the new bastardization of Industrial that is basically cybertrance). ~~~~~ Try This for Trauma http://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/moe/moe1cd002.html and these for Neuro http://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/ime/ime1cd011.html http://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/ava/ava1cd039.html http://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/dej/dej2cd005.html And yes it does seem to get faster and faster, some would even call it psycore ~~~~~ triplag.com usually has pretty seriously slamming mixes streaming as far as neuro goes, the definition is really vague i think... dark was the name it had previously but then it got faster. a couple times. ~~~~~ Chemical Crew has very little to do with the so-called dark "neuro" trance, it's testosterone-fueled Skazi bs. for some free sample downloads of (full tracks in 128 are free, i believe, you have to pay for higher quality though). link to a stream of v/a Vapour. Not the best in the genre, but a good representative of the sound, imo. http://sonic-energy.net/Download/vapour.m3u track list: 01. Lemurians - Input Flip (Procs Rmx) :: 145 02. Mubali Vs.

  15. Sennheiser HD25SP I've been really happy with these for djing and listening to music....I'm not a fan of huge headphones...I always feel silly wearing them when i'm djing...
  16. Ahhh...was at Rhakti Dei 2 years ago and had a lovely time.... wish I had known more of your psynewsers then so we could have met up!
  17. ...what's that you say? no worries i don't personally use the term as a way of describing this music myself.... i don't think its so much a question of "pigeonholing" a genre, but more simply a means of describing the sound, which of course, everyone has their own interpretation of.
  18. YIKES! semantics semantics..... Wasn't claiming any ownership to the term, or stating any opinion of my own on the subject...only saying thats where I first heard it from and trying to explain the best I could the music people sometimes refer to as Neuro. go :wank: elsewhere my friend....
