Psychedelic High

Chemical Crew are finally about to release their ground breaking psytrance compilation titled 'Psychedelic High'.

Star X introduces with 'Come with me' and the Israeli psytrance legend Skazi continues with 'Masturbation'. As you probably have figured out by now, this is no usual psytrance art piece.
Void rips with 'Maniac Psycho' and then follow 40%, Rocky and Four Carry Nuts remixed by trance pioneer and Blue Room flagship DJ Dino Psaras who is back for good.
To make things even more exciting GMS remix 'Revolution' by Skazi in what is to become another psytrance classic.
From out of the blue Ticon appear with a tense 'Analogue H' and the CD finishes with another oxymoron. This time Dino Psaras is remixing progressive trance leaders Son Kite.

If this is not a compilation to watch out for then I don't know what is.
A must have!

Psychedelic books

Surfing the web I came upon this great resource page filled with books written by various intellectuals and researchers on psychedelic substances, shamanism, philosophy and psychedelia. Amongst others, Carlos Castaneda, Rick Strassman and Timothy Leary get a special mention.
Worth having a look at.

Psytrance Love Parade?

The jubilant mob thronging last year's inaugural route proved a few things straight up. Despite its recent expulsion from our dance floors by the mighty hand of the '80s, there's still a vital electronic dance music scene snaking its way through Bay Area iPods and house parties. There's also a whole generation of neglected ex-ravers ripening for some smart promoter's plucking, eager to relive the frantic nights they can't remember and the days that form-fitting fashions forgot. But mostly there was, yes, the love. Who knows where it had been incubating all those years (psy-trance gatherings?), but a familiar sense of warm, gooey unselfconsciousness eased its way through the crowd. No, I don't mean ecstasy. Nor GHB. No stars, no trends, no wardrobe issues – dude, it was just, like, a great party.

Full On Spiritual Rhythms

Planet B.E.N. records presents the second installment of Spiritual Rhythms of Psytrance.
The compilation simply rocks from the very start with the melodic 'Faded Memories' from Electro Sun. It climaxes towards the middle with my favorite 'Cut Off' from DJ Mael aka Nomad and the dark, heavy and twisted 'Dr. LSD' rmx from A.X.L.
Phanatic hits hard with 'Lost Paradise' and Overlap close this comp with the relentless 'The Truth is out'.

Nothing new here, just plain good old full on psychedelic trance.

Dirty South from Acidance

Acidance are back with a storm of a compilation. "Dirty South" takes you through some dark and twisted paths in this full on psychedelic journey. From the very beginning Claw vs Paranoize start off with the fresh 'A message from the Ghetto' and the compilation never stops impressing until the closing track 'Dinaks production' from Iron Madness vs S.D6.
In between Blisargon Demogorgon deliver a strong 'Others are awaken', Xenomorph hits you with his retrospective 'Inextricable distraughtness', Mubali rave on with 'Gromit', Damage trip out with 'Predator' and Toxic with 'Arise'.
The only track that does not stand out is 'Chemical abuse' from Azax Syndrom, whose tracks all sound pretty much the same these days. Before you are putt off though Abomination hit back with my favourite 'Dynomite'.

This is full on psytrance at it's darkest, as someone would have
expected from Acidance.

Dont miss this!

Psytrance Cosmogenesis

Cosmogenesis records is about to release the 100 Full Moons complilation. Although a good effort overall, the production fails to impress.
Main contributors include Sinkronik, Psycotacine, Psyentist, Kaned & Unable, Psyshaker M, Andro and Genetek.
My favourite is M-Theory by Psyshaker M with its strong nostalgic element and ecstasy filled riffs.

If you like trippy 1996 style Goa trance without the fluff, you are going to love this one.
