Where is all the energy?

So I have listened to a bunch of psytrance over the past few years and it seems that the energy has started to level out. Nothing pushes the boundaries anymore, I can't find hardly any psytrance (full-on, night, or darkpsy) that is absolutely exploding with energy from every corner. I feel like all I ever do is request music on this forum, but I think it's necessary so that we can start compiling similar tracks or albums. I need something aggressive, something relentlessly blasting your face off with psychedelic sounds and basslines.

 

In the massive desert of full-on psytrance, there are very few gems (good tracks), and even fewer diamonds (energy overload tracks). I mean, I'm looking for something that is just overflowing with energy, and full-on doesn't always fit the bill, but I know there are a few tracks that have what I'm looking for. Here is an example of a track with (in my mind) unrivaled energy. Give until about 2:50 to really get going. There HAS to be more stuff like this.

First that came to my mind.

Too bad about not interested in goa, there's a ton of energy to be found there.

Also another neat track. It's not that I'm not interested in Goa, it's just not what I'm looking for right now. Right now I'm looking for full-on that matches the energy in my original post. I definitely may use these suggestions in the future for a Goa mix! :D

 

Also maybe?

This is the speed of darkpsy but it sounds more full-on! Weird track, definitely! :P

 

And timecode's releases are pretty maximal : d

 

Timecode has a ton of compilations, I've really only listened to their Broken compilation, Tickets, and Shift. Any particular suggestions?

I don't know if these are the style you're looking for, but they immediately sprang to my mind:

 

Psychotic Micro - Take Over

Psywalker - Some Kind Of Spaceship

 

http://mp3.juno.co.uk/MP3/SF1289547-02-01-05.mp3

 

 

Double R.E.L. - Sawlead Moment

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4iBKlIvDzc

 

 

Khopat vs. Sidharta - Beyond Messure Of Control

 

 

Also, the likes of Phyx, Shift, Winter Demon, Toxic, Khopat, Sidharta, Technodrome...basically stuff that's released on Timecode, Yabai, some 3D Vision (Absolum, Azax Syndrom).

 

Personally, I like almost all Wildthings releases and to me, they are pure energy.

Psychotic Micro - Take Over

 

In the right direction... full-on sound, but lacking energy imo. I actually have the Overpowered compilation.

 

Double R.E.L. - Sawlead Moment

Almost there, I'm actually looking for tracks a bit less dark than this, or the one in my original post. Night full-on is great, but can you think of any superenergetic bleep bloop pounding full-on? This one doesn't have as much energy as my original post, but I'm looking for stuff in this category:

Khopat vs. Sidharta - Beyond Messure Of Control

Right up my alley! Definitely good stuff, that's pretty much overflowing! :) Maybe veer towards the middle in the full-on spectrum when it comes to dark vs uplifting?

To regulars here this will be a obvious recommendation from me, but Cosmosis' last 2 albums (last one in particular) are packed with energetic full-on/goa hybrid music:

Enjoy!

Judging by your extract, what you need is a serious dose of:

- Pitch Hikers (latest album)

- Wizack Twizack (the latest 2 albums)

- Shift (any)

Pitch Hikers has pretty good stuff, their album from 2007 is pretty decent.

 

 

Sigh...Take two doses of V/A - Ministry of Chaos, V/A - Macao, and Timecode's Retrospective albums and you should be fine. Also, Deliriant and Hypnoxock album were super.

 

Why do you sigh? Is it a chore to give people reccomendations? :huh:

 

Also, Ministry of Chaos was a bit too dark for my interests at the moment... I'm looking for a bit more of the slamming full-on without too much darkness or too much happiness. Active, energetic, and interesting. Sometimes the night full-on stuff just sounds like a bunch of squishing, squelching, and hypnotic psychedelic energy melodies tweaking up and down for the entire time. Don't get me wrong, some of it rocks, but others can be a bit irritating... :unsure:

 

Hm, in that case you may wanna try some proper Hardcore or Speedcore? Plenty of energy I promise ;)

 

What? When the hell did I ever say I wanted Speedcore? Is this a joke?

Ok, I'll try again:

 

Sidharta - Transform (Vibraddict rmx)

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IU6_V3aNmxs

 

It's one of my all-time favourite tracks, so be nice ;) I've listened to it several hundred times and I don't get tired of it. From 2:38 onward it's pure bliss.

 

 

Winter Demon - Active Mode

 

Mr. Dvir, release some new stuff!

I can see why!! It's AWESOME!!!!!!!!! This is exactly the kind of stuff I'm looking for. Definitely a contender for a spot in my latest set! :P

 

 

Winter Demon - Active Mode

 

Great track, I love this bassline, it's so cool. Only a few tracks have basslines like this.

One of the most intense fullon traks I can think of was Space Buddha - Acid Prophecy...

 

here it is:

the calm beginning doesn't fit ... but it's really energetic ... at 4:00 for example...

Not a bad track, pretty interesting! I prefer Space Buddha - Blow Your Heart Up, it may not be filled with as much pure energy, but it's a very unique full-on track.

Yo zip, could you make a mix out of all the most intense tracks, like the one's posted here. This thread is making me want to listen to full-on again lol!

 

I'm planning on making a very stomping full-on set within the next two weeks, I had to come to this thread for one or two more tracks, and so far only one has made the cut! :P

 

Shift - Toxic Shake

 

Lots of energy, but the sound doesn't quite fit with what I'm looking for at the moment. PLEASE don't think all these suggestions are going to waste, I am planning a separate mix a few months from now that is just pure psytrance, not quite as cookie cutter as full-on, but lots of energy.

 

Twisted System - Necessary Evil

VERY cool track! Nice and dark, pretty pounding. :ph34r:

 

Frozen Ghost - Ned's Mental

 

Not really my cup of tea here, dude, sorry...

 

Azax Syndrome vs Bliss - Psycho Madness

 

This one is pretty cool too, I have this album, and they have a lot of moody, thick full-on in there. My favorite from that album is "The Better Man":
