Nice tips!! Haldolium and Elea are a must.


I still must point that lately I don´t see much innovation in what basslines concerns. To my opinion is starting to get quite boring all this one note heart beat, or machine gun basslines, and is a pity, because ( imho ) more variety will throw the genre into another dimension.

Lots of nice stuff allready got mentioned. I like to add the Extrasensory Perception compilations. There are three of them, the third one is my favourite. http://www.goastore....a590d6b15164473


Nasser's album Checkpoint is among my favourite albums of all time: http://www.goastore....roducts_id=2776


I also like the two albums that are out from Nuuktal Records. There is one compilation and a full album from Saeg:

v/a - Antimateria compiled by F-Zero http://www.goastore....roducts_id=4326

Saeg - Sophisticated Abstractions http://www.goastore....roducts_id=4162


Time In Motion are also amazing. I was able to catch them live in the summer of last year. Unfortunately they don't have a full album out but at least two EPs. I own one and like it a lot http://www.goastore....roducts_id=4608


I can also recommend the Audio Addicted compilation with lots of tracks from Swiss artists http://www.goastore.ch/product_info.php?products_id=4566

Progtrance (the psy variant on psyshop) can't really entertain me as it sounds all the same to me. And it's too boring recently.


There were some albums in the past that made me shiver though:



Fitalic - Atomic Atmosphere

Dousk - DIY

Iboga Set:7 Declivity

Antix - Twin Coast Discovery

Vibrasphere - Archipelago

Vibrasphere - Exploring The Tributaries

The usual suspects from the prog scene have been mentioned.


Hi-profile is another upcoming name in progressive psy, really liked both his albums. Its a bit on the fullonish side but there are some progressive elements as well. And some very nice floaty uplifting melodies.


Sensifeel is also worth checking out. Similar sort of sound in most of his tracks but overall not too bad i would say.

hi profile



Time in Motion


Zen Mechanics


These artists do tend to be very similar sounding without much progression(weird its called progressive) but are definately worth to be listened to if you enjoy progpsy soundscapes
