  1. Reviewed my previous list on Darkpsy and added another disc worth of comps and releases to include. Stopped at 2010 since I really didn't see a load of essentials AFTER that. Hopefully it looks accurate. As always feedback is welcome if given on any of these lists.
  2. "Psychedelic UK Techno" (Megadog, Crusty Techno, and Ethno-Hippies) https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-psychedelic-uk-techno-megadog-crusty-techno-and-ethno-hippies/
  3. Taking a break from the Psychedelic Trance Review and getting some Downtempo and related sets made or updated. Kinda related in their adjacent way with PSy. https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-ambient-dub/
  4. Twilight Psytrance done https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-twilight-psytrance-1/ Hopefully covered both sides well. Likely I'll just review what Psychedelic Trance sets I already have done and see if I need to expand or revise anymore.
  5. sorry can't help you there and a little off-topic... Hopefully he didn't borrow a riff or two from the Tresor label back catalog by naming it that, lol
  6. Beatspace has so many labels attached now on Bandcamp they are the psy version of itunes, lol. https://beatspace.bandcamp.com/artists 1.2. Trip Records 24/7 Records 2to6 Records 3rd Eye Records 9th Circle Records Acdc Records Acidance Records Acidmaniacs Records Active Meditation Music Adapted Records Airglow Records Akashik Record Alchemists Pact Records Alchemy Records Alice D Records Alkaloid Productions Amaris Records Anarchic Freakuency Anomalistic Records Another Dimension Music
  7. New set done, Zenonesque. https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-zenonesque/ Went back a bit further then the pdf did. Didn't cover Darkprogpsy outside of it....
  8. I think that's one of the issues is that when you look at modern mixes of psytrance with newer releases is they are a mix of several of the subgenres (even listing several in the titles), they're new or small artists that aren't necessary to know or don't fit into the history, and they're not designed to really do any history lessons. That's where going over classics and the history part is essential in at least showing where it came from to those who care. Youtube mixes and spotify playlists will almost always be just updated modern versions, mixing several subgenre sounds from where they sta
  9. Forest Psytrance is up. This one a bit large https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-forest-psytrance/
  10. Psy Tech is up on RYM https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-psy-tech-1/ Youtube Playlist Partial Spotify More on the way......Twilight next ?
  11. Nice to see Fuzzion - Outlaws on here and then a decade + later on Psychedelic Techno Vol. 2. Good music doesn't disappear....Psy-Tech classic as it sounds great today!
  12. Progressive Psytrance is up on RYM https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-progressive-psytrance/ Youtube Playlist Spotify More on the way......Psy-Tech next
  13. New School Goa Set is up on RYM https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-new-school-goa/ Youtube Spotify I likely should get to Progressive Psy next....
  14. In the meantime I decided to re-do the main set and cover the Golden age from 1993-2000 and break them into a 4 disc intro thru the chronological years. Since the split really happens at the millennium the rest will likely fall under the individual sets. Dropped the post 2000 selections which included progressive and new school goa, added a lot more comprehensive picks, cleaned up the sources section, and added some videos. On the bottom i show what's already made and what's now on the way. https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-goa-trance-psytrance/ Youtube
  15. So the RYM Box Set project was started on the music database rateyourmusic (RYM for short) now known as Sonemic. It's a group project to highlight the essential artists, albums, and tracks for every music genre + scene. The ultimate guide to music genres. 11 Years+ Now!. It's as easy a way to explore a genre as it gets and is a chronological mixtape with a purpose. It was created on 2009 and is still being very actively worked and expanded by a multitude of people. It has over 1,000 genre sets with nearly 1,300 discs worth of music. Many of these are stream-able on YouTube and Spotify. I
  16. ahhh ok. yeah i was hoping the pdf covered the essential artists and albums for each style, not just "examples" of some. Makes it harder to understand the genre when its different artists, albums, and criteria on the different sites to check out or the essentials / classics are skipped over. Thanks for explaining that though.
  17. PsyTrance Guide Night Full-on Also known as: Twilight, South African Full-on BPM range: 145-150 Night Full-on is the evil twin of Full-on: it has the same fast-paced bass and leads but with a darker vibe and twisted, synthetic sounds. On the festivals, Twilight Psy typically sound during the night-time, hence the name. Note: probably, Night Full-on and Twilight will be separated is the future version of this guide. Please read more in the blog.???? Examples: CPU — Processing Unit (Original Mix) Azax Syndrom — Flawless Victory (Original Mix) Alienn — Goodfellas (Origina
  18. I'm a bit mystified here. I know Ormion has been very outspoken on what great Twilight is in all his posts on this forum but yet his recommendations aren't matched by what is on the pdf but they seem a little closer to the psytranceguide stub.....As a newcomer its hard to know what to go by when people are given very different answers by 3 experts...... I've copied over the pdf recommendations into a chronological list (s.african on second half, do most people separate them or lump them together?) https://www.discogs.com/lists/Twilight-Psytrance/603302 and all the source links i found so
  19. I don't supposed anyone has ever tagged the results with subgenre tags have they? Uptempo and Dowtempo doesn't do a whole lot when there's better subgenre tags that can be used....
  20. So here's the set i just compiled for https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TheScientist/rym-ultimate-box-set-nitzhonot/ I kept the quotes and scores from Agneton and Psygreg seems like the great experts for it. I guess the examples Zed Reactor and Space Buddha fit the style but are a bit average in comparison to some of the other options. Ideally it would be nice to have the best of the best albums under selections. I don't know how far you've gotten into Psycore. I've got a bit of a list going but its pretty hard to separate and define it apart from Hi-Tech https://www.discogs.com/lists
  21. We are in the brickwalled era. Even psytrance must suffer the same fate or sound not so up to par.
  22. Glad this forum is going strong. May 2020 be a year in sharp focus.
  23. Glad you are rebooting your series on your blog. Looks very nice! Hard to get excited with just 1995 up BUT we know there's a lot coming and you're already adding a lot more detail then just 5 picks per year. Really look forward to this!
  24. I was looking through this forum and came across this thread and your pdf and i must say it makes things MUCH easier to classify the different psytrance genres than EVER before. Personally it would be nice to have the other sections (origins, more examples) with their retrospective subgenre sections but I can understand that it allows people to go through the basics first before it gets that much more complex. I've been working on my own project for breaking down and explaining genres in chronological cd length playlists for just over 10 years and its clear this next year I should spend
