Ziptnf - Obscure Alchemy [old school psytrance]

Recommended Posts

It's always nice to explore the history of a certain sound. A lot of classic tracks from the mid to late 90's are mainly goa, or goa-influenced psytrance. A lot of times I'll listen to classics sets and be bored to tears with the lack of variety in some tracks. In this mix, I play a collection of weird music from early psytrance artists that broke the mold and pushed forward a style that was just a little different than everything around them.

 

Note: A couple of the transitions are not so great, but it shouldn't detract hopefully. Also, if anyone is concerned about the Infected Mushroom track, think back and remember how boss Classical Mushroom was. Yeah, that's right.

Zip, I wouldn't consider the B.E.T.H. and the Synchro tracks as psytrance, its more dark goa which has more psyish and Industrial influences, but it is still goa, just my opinion ,Just didn't like the way you categorised the different styles into one genre. Anyhow very unique mix, weird mixture of things going on, I haven't heard anything of yours for ages!!!! Nice <_<

Forgive me for disagreeing, but I would consider those two tracks to be closer to psytrance than goa. Considering you know so much about classic goa, it surprises me that the fact that I included those tracks bothers you, since a majority of all 'psytrance' tracks from that time period have significant goa influences. Finding tracks that abandon all the rules that goa trance sets was very difficult, so having tracks that may identify with goa shouldn't be an issue.

Thanks for listening.

Oh, I know. Perhaps the smiley face at the end threw me off lol.

 

Pure psytrance from that era of music is relatively rare, especially the good tracks.
