Yggdrasil's "Prose Edda" is well worth checking - it's a blatant, shameless rip-off of Shpongle/YB style (it's all there - acidy arpeggios, stuttering voices, live guitars, latino influences, tempo changes - the lot), but a damn good one.

 

Yes! I like Yggdrasil's Prose Edda better than Shpongle's Ineffable Mysteries. But both recommended if you are into Shpongle's past work.

 

And I'd like to recommend Easily Embarrassed's Planet Discovery! Kind of like Entheogenic meeting Jean Michel Jarre in space :)

 

Also I like Aes Dana's Leylines album better than Solar Field's Movements. But also both recommended anyway of course.

 

Oh and hi :) :)

Wow! We didn't have a girl here in a long time, since Tatsu, Lauryn and MC are largely inactive. Hello! :)

By a mile my favorite psy trance orientated release of 2009. So refreshing and fun to listen to :)

 

Other then that, I really enjoeyd Solar Field's "Movements" album, and as an old schooler, Blue Planet Corporation's "A Blueprint For Survival" was a spot on release!

holy merde, I just discovered that there are three new releases from the Klangstrahler Project guys ... one from 2009, just released recently actually -- the Klangstrahler Progressive Trance and Dance Compilation: http://www.psyshop.com/shop/CDs/kla/kla1cd006.html

 

How on earth could this pass me by?

the last time I heard something new from these guys was about seven years ago!

 

And this is good stuff! Because, unlike Feuerhake, this member of the former Free Form Records artist roster has NOT changed to lollipop-progressive!

 

How on earth could this pass me by?

These guys meanwhile founded a freakin' label!

Insane :D

Some releases I've had on a lot:

 

Filteria - Daze Of Our Lives

Vishnudata - Vishnudata

SubConsciousMind - Intermezzo Extended

Cybernetika - Atropos

Disco Hooligans - Clear Skies

 

Wow, that's a shabby list. Techno is taking up 95% of my listening time and none of it comes in album format... it's all random tracks pilfered from compilations and EPs. Makes my task of recommending music a lot tougher!

Hedonix - Order Out Of Chaos topped this year imo...

 

a good combination with funky, psychedelic spirals, driven by a progressive/fullon minded baseline...

 

psyshop link...

 

+1. Most likely my pick for the best of 2009.
