I don't know if it's THAT much like what you posted, but Cybernetika's Colossus has some trance influences in it.

ah yes indeed, I know Cybernetika's stuff, although it's more breakbeat than d&b... thanks for reminding me though, I haven't listened to him in a while ;)

 

[EDIT: oh, I didn't know he crossed into pure d&b realm with this album, thanks!! :) ]

Clubby trance but trance nonetheless.

i like the first track you posted Lemmi, nice mix of different genres

don't know many tracks like that, but Total eclipse - Psychedelic terrorist got a DnB touch



it is not similar to your track though, as yours is closer to classic trance, not psychedelic

Don't forget about Eat Static! Mandrake is such a beauty... and they have many more, some seldom mentioned, like Flapscratcher...

Another new artist to watch is Mindex; he's got some tunes up on Ektoplazm if you want to give his work a sampling.

Thanks for the John B recommendation. He has some really good mixes in his podcasts.

@topic:

Back in the days I found Russian D&B act Vortex Involute to be a mixture between Trance and D&B.

well, I have 2 albums with Psy/DnB style released on Ektoplazm called "Colossus" and "Atropos", and a new PsyDnb-Album in the pipeline to be released soonish, I think it fits the description. ;) .. Thanks for mentioning it Veracohr :)

Since the fusion of hard and fast dnb rythms + basses and layers of melodic and hypnotic synths is so interesting I am constantly hunting for the best and most inspiring tracks in this very small subgenre :)

Here are some of my personal faves:


Especially the russians seem to be into this stuff, there is some very underground russian stuff from around 10 years ago when this subgenre seemed to be at its peak. This one is one of the most popular - very catchy but still keeps a rough dnb edge with its amen break, liking it a lot.


Paul B is one of those russian Dnb producers who have made a few interesting releases in a relatively short time and then sort of disappeared into the underground again. This track is a little masterpiece imo - early-mid-00s-sound at its best. Heavy layering of busy drumloops, wide reese basses, and playful, trancy melodies.


Future Prophecies made a huge variety of styles on their "Warlords Rising" album, but there are 2 tracks that are definitely worth mentioning. This is one of them... one of the most dark and relentless hyperspeed-rides I have ever heard. The other dark-trancy-dnb track is called "Black Dragon", so look for that one too.


Brilliant effort from Rawthang. Them and Black Sun Empire really got my attention towards DnB. This is how it should be done, with the winning formula: heavy detuned reese basslines, fast-forward drumloops, simple yet effective melodylines and atmospheric backgrounds.

Hey thats a really nicenice track you posted Lemmi! And hearing it, Black Sun Empires MASSIVE classic track "Arrakis" should grease your noodle, even though it's heavier and darker. It's still very trancey! Especially the synth <3 -- np. the John B. track. .. The Total Eclipse track from the superb Tsunami VA, is defo more break beat oriented and less D'n'B, imo. But then again, I ain't no expert! .. didn't fancy the John B too much. is ok. np. Yana Kay

I am in wub with the Future Prophecies track posted above, really nice mood. Hearing forward to listen to the Rawthang :D



PS. does the melody/sound in "Magnetic" not remind you of a MWNN track? :smile:

 

 

PS2. Why is the album art of the Rawthang so similer to bLACK sUN eMPIRE's Driving Insane,

FULLY INTENSIONAL? Hey, I know this track .. .Nice1

Magnetic is awesome isnt it.. I can hear a lot of influences from a few Goa/Psy artists in tracks from that time. In my personal opinion 2000-2005 was a fantastic time for DnB, seeing all the noncheesy trance influences on DnB tracks from that time, but somehow they got separated again.

Don't know why the cover is wrong, its indeed the one of Driving Insane :)

But BSE and Rawthang have worked together on some tracks, not sure where to find them all, but this is one of them. Brilliant stuff with great vocals:

arrakis really is a timeless classic. certainly among the very best dnb tracks.

 

these trancy tracks from back in the day also shouldn't miss in this thread:

Roughly ten years ago there was sub-genre called trance'n'bass or trancestep by some, John B was one of the producers making this kind of music, although some of the tracks by 'trance' meant short loops with only slight changes during the progression supposedly helping listener to get into a trance-like state.

 

Reversing the topic tittle, few Slackbaba's productions are trance with d'n'b influences (in all his three albums), IMO definitely worth checking.
