The best live psy act you ever saw

In all your time of going Psychedelic trance parties who are the best live act you've ever seen ? Mine are strange because they aren't nessecerilly even among my favourite acts But I saw Transwave once at a club in London Called Science Friction back in Jan 1997 and they were fantastic they just defined what a good psy trance live set should be, I really didn't want them to stop. secondly Electric Universe @ Ozora in Hungary 2005 we'd watched live psy trance acts after live psy trance acts for at least 2 days before but Electric Universe came on and blew the roof off the place there was just something about the chemistry of the time and space they were playing in. he was joined on stage with the guitarist that night and strangely a year or so later he released an album pretty much of what he'd played that night I bought it and thought it was tedious, but on that night in the here and now the set had been more than memorable.

HMmm the answer to this question usually changes after some time.

 

For me I think the best was Total Eclipse, in Bordeaux, in 96 or 97.

 

And following very close were Etnica in Paris, 1999.

And followng very close were one of the first live acts of Infected Mushroom also in Paris, 1999.

A Logic Bomb performance, still in Paris, in 2000 blew me away, and KoxBox at Samothraki 2002 too.

 

I should point out that usually memory makes things better than what they actually were, so let's pay attention.

 

More recently I think only Filteria, Antares and Andromeda made me fly like in the good old days :)

From all the psy live acts I've attended (and a fair 80% of them were witnessed while attending one of Ozoras I've been to):

 

Blue Planet Corporation @ last year's Ozora, at around 07:30 in the morning. Oh the joy...

 

Green Nuns Of The Revolution in London, @ the amazing Twisted Records label party

 

Union Jack @ this year's Ozora Festival. These guys are the definite surprise of the event for me. Wow, what a powerful performance, and glorious track selection.

 

Solar Fields @ last year's Ozora, as it was the very first time I heard tracks which were later released on "Movements", which still ranks as one of the finest downtempo releases I have ever listened to.

 

Eat Static, London, May 2007. When they came onto the stage with those alien masks on, all hell broke loose. Woohoo!

Hux-Flux

Logic Bomb

X-Dream

Infected Mushroom

 

All back in 2000-2002 or something.

 

By the way, this I'm jealous of. Damn. All of those artists... in that era. Makes me drool!

 

But seriously, when it comes to playing LIVE! I have never seen a psytrance artist who is as skilled and engaged and fucking musical to the bone as Eat Static. No song of them (him) played live is ever the same, he's focused and constantly plugging things in and out, twisting knobs, turning levers, heating fluids... whatever. The guy's a maniac.

 

I mean, LIVE! (LIVE!!!) sets without laptops are pretty rare these days anyway...

@Rino: you were there in London? Nice! I liked Younger Brother's liveset best there, I was completely surprised and didn't know what to expect beforehand.

 

:)

 

Yeah, I actually flew from Zagreb just to be there at the party. I stayed for a full week in London though. Found a cheap hostel, and shared a romm with a bunch of cool americans :)

 

Younger Brother was very good, true, a totally unexpected performance, but Eat Static tore the roof off.

 

I want a replay of that party!

Its really difficult to remember live acts and the music that they play.

Some are :

 

Hallucinogen, most of his live acts :P

 

Slinky Wizard, Sola luna 2001 :ph34r:

 

Red Seal, Sola luna 2001 B), had perhaps the best sex in my life, girl that i met had her tent next to the chill area :P

 

Noma, 2000 ;)

 

Kox box, many of their live was awesome B)

 

and lots of other that i cannot remember. Use to attend psy parties every weekend till 2003. Generally best live acts that i heard were before 2002-03. Sad eh?

 

 

Also artists that i love and reaaaally looking forward to listen to them live and never had the opportunity is Ka-Sol/Derango and BOTFB..and i rarely listen to psytrance-goatrance the past years

I've been not to many parties with live acts but I'm very prejudiced against "live acts" because many of them are not real. :)

All big artists I saw as S.U.N. Project, Astral Projection, Atmos and others just simulated. So one of the true live acts that I liked is Son Kite's in 2004. It's not my favourite style because it's Progressive (Blaaaah), but the performance was excellent.

sun project was "simulated"?

 

really...cuz ive seen them about 6 or 7 times and every time i saw them they were playing live (as live as psytrance gets anyway).

Yeah, many people that saw them in live act said that they have great performance and real live playing years ago. But last year when I was at party with them it was only simulation. Everybody can understand it. :)

Great concert :D

 

on this note I have to add:

 

Jean-Michel Jarre "Oxygen Live" played on the original synths (him and 3 other guys) in Copenhagen 2008 :rolleyes:

I saw him play at ozora this year and was quite disappointed :( he didn't seem to have any direction what so ever in his set, but on the other hand:

 

H.U.V.A Project (Ozora 10) blew my socks of and the following

Aes Dana live set.... holy shit!!!
