Yeap - very much into Breaks, electro, techno (dave clarke/garnier/mills stylee), dnb, 'intelligent' hiphop - a la mos def/talib kweli - not so much the gangsta stuff, klezma (for random comedy music moments), swing, some rock'n'roll stuff, some new indie stuff - but select tracks rather than much of the genre as a whole, & ambient/chillout - cafe del mar/anotherlatenight/backtomine stylee.


so actually, that pretty much covers most things apart from classical & black metal/grindcore & noize/drillnbass and pop, rnb, soul, funk - those are genres i generally can't get into.

I'm a big fan of alot of 'chillout' bands (although I hate that word) like zero7, air, bonobo, goldfrapp, kinobe, lemon jelly, morcheeba, nitin sawhney & talvin singh. I also like good hip hop like the fugees, j5 & the herbaliser and I love latin american stuff like the buena vista social club and manu chao.

Yeah emma, the best way to describe manu chao is definately sunny summer music. It always brings a huge grin to my face as I imagine the beautiful weather brazil must have for people to write music like that!

And josh, I wouldn't say that I exactly owned many of those artsts' albums, but they seem to be played by my computer very regularly.. don't know how it happens! :ph34r:

Didn't know there was a new morcheeba album.. might have to check that out.

I also dig a bit of Bingo Bongo Manu Chao stylee, always brings a smile to my face :Smile3: I don't listen to psy-trance so much these days anyway, I'm a chill freak really, but I shave through my old collection of funnies such as Breakdance The Soundtrack and a bit of Led Zeppelin.... I listen to Gong a bit still and even Abba when I'm in the mood! !! It's not all swirly noises and grooving beats. I also have a passion for dub and reggae stuff like Alpha & Omega, Misty In Roots, Mad Proffessor etc...

talvin singh - traveller is one of my favourites!!!!

nice, musical stuff i listen to when not annoying my neighbours with relentless banging

anything good i am open to :Wink3:

ur boring if you just listen to psy and are missing out on many enjoyable music genres!

was listening to ozomatli's first album again today and was reminded how excellent it is... crazy mexican funky hip hop-y stuff with 2na fish rapping, very very good, even if you dont like hip hop...

uk hip hop is good too - task force, roots manuva, mark b & blade, blak twang, skitz, braintax to name a few are producing some good tunes.

mr faster is right - listening to just psytrance means you miss out on huge amounts of damn good music...
