    Ok how good is yer intuition and prospective ability in determining what will follow next?
    When I was able to keep up with almost every release I could predict where the sound would go. There was that catchy riff-then it was sampled and resampled and even leaked to cheesy pop renditions.
    So how is it now days? I know this is similar to it all sounds the same thread but surely there are some gaps to be explored in the sounds.

    There was a tweak and bleep then followed with a blurp, next came a barrage of base and back to the tops etc.

    it will divide, or rather it already has, and the divisions will become clearer.

    :no: :no: :no:

    Some peoples will attempt to make what we currently hear more popular, and some peoples will attempt to make it less popular, and some peoples will attempt to write what they had in mind in the first place.

    A bit like what has already happened to trance, hard house, hard trance, acid tekno, d'n'b and metal to name but a few.

    So... logically, there will be two 'new' sounds.

    1)Full on as we currently know it, only with more *big tunes*, or rather more obvious ones for more obvious peoples. Expect fluffy morning moments to full on stompathons to be raped in the name of money and commercial success, whilst previously trusted names fall over themselves in the rush to make a quick buck

    2)A return to the'old skool' is long overdue. Half of the old stuff sounds fresher and more psychedelic than the new stuff anyway, so I expect things to regress to the '96 - '98 time frame in terms of wibble noises, rythyms and out and out weird synthesiser squeals. Roll it on, because I can't wait!

    errr, Skazi and Infected Mushroom will feature on Now Thats What I Call Music 45 or whatever the next one is. Astrix will have to settle for a place on the No.1 Dance Anthems of 2006.
    We will have a state of Progressed psy trance where it can go no further which will make way for mid life crisis psy trance which will be followed by regressive psy-trance. Which is where in order to cling onto any last glimpse of coolness psy-trance tries to act more like it did when it was younger, which just makes it look even more silly. So it gives up and buys a Porsche with all the money its made. :P

    303 revival :Wink3: a return to the layerd acid sound. and hopefully a bit more depth and actually *shock* some psychedelic in there??? rather than just big chainsaw riffs and a crunching pound.

    There already is a bit of a revival going on in some circles, whether it's worth it or not is yet to be seen IMO. There have been a few albums taking the "why did people stop using 303s" route and others trying to recreate the melody overload that typified the time to me. Unfortunately the ones that I've heard so far have been very so-so or appalling, prime example would be Trauma - TB 0r Not 2B (Agitato). :no: The name describes it so well.

    By my guess there's a pile of peeps who are finally making their own tunes trying to recreate the sounds of then, I've yet to hear more than a couple of these tunes though which couldn't have done with the makers paying enough attention to learning the lessons that people learnt first time round.

    Still early days though...

    TBH I do like the odd 303 noise going on, but I don't want to step back to the days when every tune was about waiting for the 303 sounds to take over.

    good to see the future looks bright then. :rolleyes:
    Either shit commercial psypop, or old psy. No ones going to try and progress and develop the sound? Nah, lets just go back to what worked 10 years ago. :Sad:

    i think the south africans are the best direction of psy nowadays, its alot easier to mix it wiv other styles of music like electronica an heavy breaks. LFO- freak into artifakt - new born is possible, whereas the 'straight' psy is only mixable into a very limited range of styles wiv out needing a 3hr set!!! :trippn:
    IMO

    completely agree, hydrophonics album is brilliant. :Grin: It mixes it up with breaks, but also you can hear little breakbeat rhythms under the psytrance. That is how you develop, imo: embrace new sounds and ideas and genres, not go backwards.

    I dunno about that. Have you heard Unusual Suspects 2 yet. Now that sounds progressive and developed to me.

    Now that's what I'd like to hear!

    Remember stuff that you can hear how to mix instantly ain't worth the date stamp.
