Had a listen to some of the stuff on Kamaflage and Dirty Blue Records and have been tantalized into getting hold of more... unfortunately I don't know anything about it. Its a whole new world, which - like the psytrance one - seems to be populated by a million small record labels and 5million albums.... 90% of which are bollocks. A jungle to explore!

Don't want to spend weeks wading through all of the crap to find the good stuff though. I need some hints to help find the cream of the crop. Can anyone reccommend their favorite artists or some good websites?

Cheers
Dan

so far i have downloaded 6 or 7 of these mixes and they are absolutely, mindblowing, heartmeltingly amazing.

to be honest its the 4/4 music thats most fired my synapses in the last few years

all tracklisted as well to aid hunting down artists/labels, but i havent actually bothered, the mixes are so divine in themselves i feel no need to go and cratedig the genre, i still have loads more of these i havent downloaded yet :Smile3:

Hmm... can't seem to find the Hazy mizes there. It's all in a wierd language and I've had no luck, despite clicking around a bit.

how very odd

when i went there last (which was when i posted it, to check), it was just an apache directory listing with all the mixes right there in front of ya!

no page, no language...

now i click on the link today to see what you're on about and i get redirected to a hungarian site indeed.

my only theory: at home i'm in firefox, at work (now) i'm in IE. try it in firefox? otherwise I'll fish out direct links to the mp3s when i next get home (which is tomorrow night)

Photek made a house album named solaris around 3 years ago. Its probaby a track off there. The album was not the best of photeks work but it had some nice grroves on, and some good vocalists too.

Found some more :Smile3:
I downloaded the second 'download' link after chasing up the music when hearing it on the radio. It's quite long at almost 2 hours, much of it is wallpaper music, but there are some interesting ones on there, particularly a mental metal track at about 1hr47..
