Can't handle all those categories...


I'll just post my favorite:


Ace Ventura - Rebirth


haha, yeah its quite a lot isn't it. i was bored and did it more to get some cool new music recommendations so any contributions to the thread would go down very nicely :)

Anyway, i hate to say it but the ace ventura album has actually been wearing a bit thin on me lately... Not sure why, but just not enjoying some of the tracks as much as I used to :unsure: Still love psychic experience, sao paulo, presence and the light though, but with those they don't seem to have the same effect on me anymore... Maybe it got overplayed a bit, or perhaps i need to see him live again to reinvigorate my taste :P

This one is really hard. But the following albums have been very stimulating:


Atmos - Headcleaner


Cujorius One - Creating A Second Sun & The Art of Mindfucking


Genetic Spin - ON/OFF


Haldolium - Daegua


Shiva Chandra - Auricular



I have recently been checking out some of Horns And Hoofs Entertainment's releases like Bigwigs and Fuzzion etc. I just ordered a huge batch of CD's from Wirikuta. The tracks I heard sounded really promising. So I can't wait to get into it.

hmmm, interesting topic. don't wanna ba a smartass, but what does 'Progressive' mean here? is it about progressive psytrance, or progressive trance in general, psy and/or not psy? 1-2 years ago i changed my definitions about what people call psyprog or psygressive. for me it's the australian style (not necessarily aussie labels/artists only) that is progressive psytrance, simply because for me it's psychedelic. i mean labels like Zenon, CCR, etc and artists like Tetrameth, Grouch, etc. Most artists/releases listed here are not progrssive psytrance for me, rather progressive trance or progressive techno with a little psy influence maybe. and that doesn't mean it's bad music. it's just not what i call psychedelic. ok, i will list 2 Top 5s:


Top 5 progressive psytrance releases (no particular order):


Shadow Fx - Direct Influence

Tetrameth - Psychological Pyrotechnics

Tetrameth - The Eclectic Benevolence

Grouch - Further (album)

Merkaba - Awaken



Top 5 progressive trance releases (no particular order):


Various - Tshitraka Project - Festival Compilation Vol. 4

Bitmonx & DJ Fabio - Plugged

Zolarium - Prototype

Subsistence - The Condition Of Existence

Various - Straight Forward
