  1. I'm looking forward to Jon Cocco's review. Interstate Highway is probably my favourite album from MWNN. I don't listen to it often, but it's one of those albums that always gives me a pleasant surprise every time I pull it out for some play time.

    Was never that big a fan of interstate highway, however Moment of Truth is probably one of the best cd ever made, bought it back when it came out still listens to regularly.



  2. I'm glad you made it Jon. It is never too late. Even on discogs you can clearly see and read that the Tunnel Records version of "Trip to trancesylvania" was released in 1993 , and some of its tracks were even recorded prior to that date...


    Hence X-Dream's current status as the true, pioneering, evolving and always changing masters of the genre!



    Children of the last generation was quite well know back in the day for example.


    Wasnt that impressed about we interface though.



  3. 1. Your total collection number (including everything: cds,vinyls,tapes etc. from every music genre).


    Never counted it, I guess somewhere between 800 - 1200.


    2. Your Psytrance & Psychill (all genres) number (including everything: cds,vinyls,tapes etc).


    Most of 1. maybe 19/20 of the whole collection. Dunno


    3. Your total cd collection number (every music genre).


    see 1.


    4. Your total cd Psytrance & Psychill (all genres) number.


    see 2.


    5. First Psytrance or Psychill release you bought and when.


    Hummmm. dont really know maybe juno reactor - transmissions(if it count as psytrance) back in 93, cant really remember before that.


    6. Fav Psytrance or Psychill release in your collection.


    Not possible to say about a release. Still favorite track ever is Shakta - lepton head part 3(deedrah remix). Fantastic music!


    7. Most important Psytrance or Psychill release in your collection and why.


    Man with no name - moment of thruth. Why? it set a milestone in my opinion.


    8. The most rare Psytrance or Psychill in your collection.


    Havent got the slightest idea, maybe ifo or accindental occindetialism.


    9. Albums/Compilations balance.


    no clue really. If you look at the early years its definetly compilations, later years I dont really know. A guess would by 60-50 to the albums.


    10. Do you support artists from your country. Do you buy their releases?


    Dont really give f*** where they come from.


    Bonus question: Do you download Psy for free?


    A few times.

  4. Was just checking the ozora festival line-up and saw that Transwave was playing.


    What got me wondering was the fact that it looks like they are signed on twisted??


    Thought they were an 3d vision since thats Christophs label.


    One more thing, on the promo text it says "...with some new material from their brand new album, and some legendary old tracks..."

    Now the only new album I know of is Backfire but I dont remember any new material on that, so exactly what did I miss?


    Anyone care to enligthen an oldtimer that been out of the loop for a while?



  5. Posted Image


    £ 120 on Discogs...

    Holy f***! 120??


    You got to be kidding me, you can get that for 45 through amazon. And if you wait and just check once in a while you can get it for 5-10 pounds.


    Seen this quite a few times second hand at really good prices, got my own copy for 5 euro.



  6. having said all this, there is one type of innovation this scene desperately needs more of, and that is in a unique style/sound for each artist. it seems that when an artist becomes popular, there are hundreds of wannabees who try and copy the successful style, and many others who actually want to release it, so in the end the scene is flooded with GMS clones, or Protoculture clones, or whatever, and not only does this become boring for the punter (full-on psytrance is only just recovering from the protoculture phenomanen imho) it also usually ends up killing off the act that starts it.

    Very well said.


    One thing I find very annoying about the whole 'innovation' thing, is that many people use it to describe that an artist have changed his sound.

    That is not necessarily innovation, it can be, but for many artist it simply imply that they have changed their sound to what ever is current, for example the whole fullon thing.

    I dont think thats innovation to sound like everybody else, thats regression.


    Just my two cents.

  7. The first Deviant Electronics album is one of the best melodic Goa albums of all time. It's probably in the same leage with Dimension 5 - Transdimensional although quite different in style.

    Crap, there is one for sale at amazon but the seller wont deliver to denmark..


    Well if anybody else want it, its there..



  8. Kreation7: Is it possible for you to upload a better quality version of m6-6?


    I also know this track especially the part from around 0:20 -> 1:00.


    Pretty sure I have m6-6 somewhere... reminded me of the first MFG album, but that's not it, is it?

    My first impression said Dimension 5, but that's not it either is it?



  9. Its incredible how it seems, at least to me, that you guys dont ever question yourselves how comes psynews was so great ´back in the days´ and it didnt have moderation?

    Ehhh, when excatly wasnt there moderation here?


    Even when you used your metalman alias(that was you wasnt it?) there was moderation here.


    stop being so strict, and locking topics.. let more space for conflicts and resolution of conflicts (unless it passes an obvious line) .. its important in life just like here..

    Thats the thing isnt it? When has it crossed the obvious line?

    Its subjective what that line is, agreed?

    Well it seems the owner think its crossed, whether you, I or anybody else agrees with it.

    The way I see it we can either accept it, or walk away.


    Just my 2 rupees.



  10. Sick of it all - consume


    Electronic music and especially goa have been major part of my life for year uncounted. However parallel to that I have always had a love for punk and hardcore. Goa represents in a way the "good" aspects of me but as any other person I have another side thats more agressive, that where the hardcore comes in.

    Sometimes I just get the urge to scream at the world from the top of my lungs, and since Im feeling like this right now sick of it all fits my frame of mind my beautifully.

    Consume is in my book one of their best tracks ever, the energy is incredible.



  11. have also heard them both play, Simon Live Act and Carl Cox techno and house sets. Simon was better by any means, but only coz he played Live. I disliked Carl Cox infantile shouts he is producing during sets, lifting the crowd with his hands in the air, shouting on the microphone, but still, Carl Cox is the only guy that played for Y2K on 6 different places around the globe, moving around in time so he could actually play 6 different NY...impressive activity.

    I thougth we were talking about dj's, not livesets?


    And besides whats so special about DJ'ing anyway, "Look at me! I can play other peoples music!" better take a look at production skills.

    Well as the above its all about personal preferences, but for me I'll take a dj set over a live one any day.

    Dj's got more material to work with since they are not confined to play only their own music.

    That for me makes it a lot more interesting. Then again there are not that many artist that I find it interesting to hear playing their own music for an hour or two.

    However I find that there are ofcourse exceptions like KoxBox, Total Eclipse, HAllucinogen, Juno reactor etc.
