You lot have some pretty impressive collections!

 

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

 

190 CDs listed on discogs, though they're probably not all there, let's say it's more like 200 give or take.

 

2/3/4 - Can't be bothered to go through them. Plus what I might define as some genre might be a totally different genre in somebody else's collection.

 

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

 

Shpongle - Are You Shpongled? - circa June 2005

 

6. Fav Psytrance or Psychill release in your collection.

 

Infected Mushroom - B.P Empire

 

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

 

I couldn't honestly say, mostly because I'm moving away from the entire genre. Probably same as #6 because I still love that record.

 

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

 

I got a couple out of print astral projection albums, but they're not really that rare.

 

9. Albums/Compilations balance.

 

Do the math yourself: http://www.discogs.com/user/amplifly - I think the albums outnumber compilations though!

 

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

 

I buy music I like, regardless of where it's come from and when it's been released. There's so much being produced that it would be hard 'just' to buy UK stuff just because it was UK stuff.

 

Bonus question: Do you download Psy for free?

 

If it's available as free, then yes. If I can get it on CD I will get it on CD. But yes if it's a free download then I'll download it. :)

 

I don't download CDs I can get from a shop.

...not :drama:

No it actually did.

As he put code around each question I could answer each question so that he question was bold but my answer was not, looking very nice in the post. If he had just but code around all the questions as a block then it would have been much more work for me to do that!

So in fact nananananananananaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Around 1000+ vinyls and 200+ cd`s I really should update my discogs, but it`s such tedious work,

6. Fav Psytrance or Psychill release in your collection.

 

Masaray - Time Traveller Of Trance.

 

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

 

Slinky Wizard - Witch Juice EP, since it`s the one that convinced me on the greatness of goa trance.

 

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

 

Dunno, I buy records to play. Maybe the Bliss Point sampler ep. Monetarily possibly the Prana debut album, or some of the compilations, Truth Of Communication, etc...

 

 

9. Albums/Compilations balance.

 

Around 70% of my stuff is 12" singles.

 

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

 

I buy finnish trance that I like, e.g I will get the new Texas Faggott album, but not the new Highpersonic Whomen.

 

Bonus question: Do you download Psy for free?

 

I download mixtapes, legal stuff like antiscarp & thixxndixx and songs that I already have on vinyl, because it`s a hassle to set up my stuff so that I can rip them.

 

Whew, what a chore to type all of that again

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

 

2000+ CDs, 10 vinyls, 200 DVDs, no tapes

 

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

About 1000 CDs I guess.

 

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

2000+

 

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

About 1000 CDs I guess.

 

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

Man With No Name - Moment Of Truth - 1996

 

6. Fav Psytrance or Psychill release in your collection.

Impossible to say. Sorry for being so boring, but there are hundreds.

 

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

I have a fair share of the seminal goa trance/psytrance releases.

 

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

Tough one. I have some rare stuff I guess, but nothing insanely rare. Judging from Discogs own/want ratio, I guess these are somewhat rare: this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this + this

 

9. Albums/Compilations balance.

My Discogs collection (only 75% of my collection) is 34 pages. Of those pages, 12 are compilations. So, quick math estimates that 35% of my collection consists of compilations.

 

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

Yeah, to some extend. I've always loved Koxbox, and Iboga Records makes me proud.

 

Bonus question: Do you download Psy for free?

 

No. I have done so to a smaller scale in the past, but now I'm a hardware fetischist. I haven't downloaded psy in 3 years.

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

No vinyls. I guess it's something like 150. But I have the whole Chopin collection in a 30 CD box so it's more 180. Planning to get the Beethoven collection (more than 100.........) so it will surely boost the number :lol:

 

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

I guess something like 81.

 

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

I guess something like 135. Thus tapes like 15, perhaps a little bit more

 

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

I guess something like 80.

 

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

Bought Eyal Barkan - Good Morning Israel back in 2000. Threw it away in 2003...

Got back to Goa in 2006 when bought a bunch of CDs from Twisted: Hallucinogen both, Prometheus both, Unusual suspects both, Koxbox - U-Turn and perhaps one more I don't remember.

 

6. Fav Psytrance or Psychill release in your collection.

Psytrance/Goa - Definitely Hallucinogen - Twisted and Jaïa - Blue Energy

Psychill - Definitely Mystery Of The Yeti 1

 

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

I guess it's Hallucinogen - Twisted since it's because of this album that I started to listen to Goa.

 

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

Perhaps Asura - Code Eternity 1st edition? Don't have real rare ones...

Oh! I have Transwave - Helium. I think it's rarer than Asura.

 

9. Albums/Compilations balance.

I have more Goa/Chill albums I think. But every genre overall it might be compilations since when I was listening to Trance/Dance I thought compilations were better.

 

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

I dislike most of French songs, so not buying these.

As for Goa, I think oldschool French Goa was nice. But I'm not buying only because it's french... Say, I don't really like Talamsca so I won't buy it.

 

Bonus question: Do you download Psy for free?

Yes. In fact now I buy most of my CDs based on that. Except for few CDs where the samples were enough (U-Turn, Torakka - Far Out Express and few others).

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

about 1250 + 300 classic music vinyl + 40 cd's classic, jazz, hiphop, etc..

 

so, about a 1600 i guess

 

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

as i'm more into the grey area's it's hard to draw a line within my collection

but pure psytrance.. i'd say a 200-250

 

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

counting double and triple cd's as one : about 64 + a 40 some classic/jazz/hiphop/...

 

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

±5 (if you're talking bout true psytrance/chill

if i count in the grey area's that count in for me personally : ±20

 

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

i started with buying the typical psytrance quite late, because in the days i used recordstores as source i never really bounced into goa i liked

first typical goa stuff i bought would prolly be Juno Reactor on Novamute, and some Koxbox stuff on Blue Room and HartHouse

this started out probably round 2003-2004

 

but i'm not really a psytrance freak, i call things psychedelic trance that have the label "speedcore, acidtekno, industrial, techno, etc...."

so i have a different perspective on the term psytrance, and can't really answer that question fully to whats expected

it's comparable with discussing colours .. if i say red or green it fully depends on personal interpretation and perspective to define what colour comes in mind ;)

so i just have an unusual view on psychedelic trance, that's it mainly hehe :)

 

perhaps the first things on cd i bought were Eat Static cd's ('99 - '01 somewhere) as i knew a store that had a good variated stock with electronic stuff on cd

 

6. Fav Psytrance or Psychill release in your collection.

hard one, my favorite things mostly are grey-area's qua style as they are very meaningfull to me,

=> to gain perspective on the old streams and to blend psytrance with other psychedelic genres

 

but within the style (though i find it rather good techno-trance-acid) > probably Planet BEN - Trippy Future Garden

out of the style into the grey zones (though very congruent with the former mentioned album) that'll probably be Klinik - Sonic Surgery

 

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

all psytrance that borders with techno, acid and oldschool trance / rave / house

best material essential for blending in a mix

 

furtheron, importance is irrelevant for me, as i try to keep my collection filled with releases that i find important working materials

and they all have their own qualities which cannot be compared

 

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

probably something from the Loving Ed Records label, but that's not really psytrance

and my collection is 99% vinyl, so.. can't pinpoint this

or something from Black Totem perhaps

 

but what do u consider rare ?

rare imo equals hard to find (for example because of lack of represses of old small defunct labels with releases of 300-600 copies, pressed only once

hyped (expensive) stuff is something else .. old items that have become rare because they are so wanted, never were repressed and intensively used by owners over the long period of time

 

9. Albums/Compilations balance.

96% Albums/Ep's 4% Collections i guess

 

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

as much as i can, but due to financial issues i sometimes have to make a selection in buying

but i certainly do.. except if i find the release itself awful :)

 

Bonus question: Do you download Psy for free?

yes, i'm quite the intensive downloader

but that's only because i dont have any recordstores anymore where i can get inspired

so downloading stuff for me is just the way i discover new music that i like, so i can buy them

i dont consider it being illegal, though it mostly is

and i certainly dont use these things to create mixes (i would rather die)

 

ah yes.. and to conclude my answer : i find mp3-deejays extremely lame

they don't deserve any respect and are a confirmation that internet has a decaying effect on music-quality

don't understand that mp3-dj's get asked for parties, but i blame forum life for this

if u love music, u praise the artists behind the magic of the music ur into

free mp3-downloading has a more massaconsumption nature, which mostly evokes bad taste, and decadence (cultural decay)

 

but hey.. scene-decadence is a natural process that always occurs hehe

(be it through overproduction, be it through hyping "hits of the month", be it through musical-content getting dependent on social hierarchism and friend-politics)

 

 

so dunno if it is appropriate thing to do for me, filling out this list

but i'm more of an allround outsider that doesnt believe in scenes, doesn't work with styles, but works with elements, origine, influences, networks (between artists, labels, etc..) and association to define music

so i'm not really a goatrance fanatic if u consider goatrance being an autonomous and isolated style with roots from the past

i'm more active in exploring the grey areas and cross-influences between different psychedelic electronics seen over it's whole traject from the late 70's till now

allthough qua psytrance my interests mainly reach no further than 1997 (not counting in the few exceptions)

1. I don't have vinyls, tapes (well any more) so it's the same with my cd number. Around 410.

 

2. 348 if I remember correctly.

 

3. The same with 1.

 

4. The same with 2.

 

5. Pulse 6 but they stole it from me the same day so it doesn't count. First release Distance To Goa 4,5 & 6 Box in 2000.

 

6. Too many... Sorry, can't find just one except from IFO... Oh, wait I don't own IFO! :o

 

7. Distance To Goa 4. First Psytrance cd in my Hi-Fi. Uh, memories...

 

8. Audela album (222 copies), then Durdom & Hate compilations (500 copies). Maybe some of my Goa cds are pretty rare today, not sure though.

 

9. Albums 40%/Compilations 60%. Not in purpose though.

 

10. If I like the style then yes!

 

BQ. No.

 

 

ONLY ORIGINAL

 

 

C'mon your turn it's fun! :rolleyes:

It is fun!!!!

 

1. 476, all cds, I thought I had between 500-600, but I did sell some, I just didnt know that I sold that many. Quality over quantity right.

 

2. same

 

3. same

 

4. same

 

5. I think Etnica-Chrome (Japanese version) back in 2002

 

6. Thats hard, maybe between Cosma-Simplicity, & Cosma-Nonstop

 

7. They are all important to me.

 

8. I dont think that I own anything rare. only maybe some Suntrip, or Ultimae releases, but I dont think they are rare, just great quality. Maybe the first two Hallucinogen albums, or Transwave or something.

 

9. albums/comps, maybe almost 50/50, maybe 20 more on the albums side.

 

10. Yes, but being an american there arent really alot of great artists to support. I enjoy Ocelot, & Penta, and some Quadra. Anyways, I have lived in Japan for the last 6 years, so I support artists from all around the globe by buying their releases, and going to see them spin live.

 

Bonus Question. NEVER HAVE, NEVER WILL!!!
