I wish I could get into psy trance but it all sounds the same to me. It’s ok in small doses I guess – I like the trippy sounds in it, and there are some interesting textures, but a lot of the time it’s like identikit dance music – that same popping kick drum that sounds like a wet fart that seems to be used on every track, and same bass sounds. Also it never breaks down, it’s just a relentless beat. I guess that’s part of the appeal.

I go to a fair few psy nights and went to Boom 2008 as a few of my mates are really into it, so it’s not as if I’ve only heard one tune that I didn’t like and written off the whole genre. I just don’t like psy trance (and most of the pseudo-scientific hippy mystical stuff that comes with the scene). Sorry :hopeless:
