Hey guys..

I was just reading this thread in the Mexico forum: http://forum.isratrance.com/history-of-psytrance-culture-in-mexico/

And it was really interesting to see how things got going there. Now I only came into the scene in 2005. I would love to hear about the early times and when things got started here in the US. DO TELL! if you were there.. NYC, LA, SF, MIDWEST, TX, NC, etc. How did the psybug get into the US?

I think Blue Room had something to do with the scene in SF, but I don't know much about the NY scene's history though.
In Texas, there was a crew called the Texaliens I think that did stuff way back, but I'm a little fuzzy on that history too... If anyone knowledgeable on the history could chime in, I'm really curious too.           An Eagle may soar, but Weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

The NW started being active around 1995...
It really picked up and took footing in 1998/1999...

LA and SF were also rocking around that time.


Many excellent parties down in California in the late 1990's.



Lots more diversity then too.
A waaaaaaay different scene...           nlm - http://goaconstrictor.com v4.2

East coast started with "Return to the source" (1995?) parties followed by "Tsunami" then "Synthetic Sadhus" which were the biggest I have ever seen in the US.
here are some old pics from those days.

I don't know when they started out but Acid Physix (sp?) were active in NYC in 1996, and brought OOOD over for their NYE party that year.           Mastering - http://mastering.OOOD.net :: www.is.gd/mastering

Astral Tribe in Dallas predated Universal Mind, but Texaliens in Austin were there in the beginning too. Mid/Late 90s for both.

goa trance started off in New England area (outside of NYC) in the mid 90's when they started adding special acts to multi-genre raves.

Some memorable ones for me was Slinky Wizard next to Rabbit in the Moon in Fitchburg, MA on 04/20/96, and DJ Dutch from SF coming out as early as '95 to drop goa bombs on the dingy warehouses of Hartford and Providence.           We are all family. We put the fun in disfunctional.

In 1998 PsyTribe Had MFG, Space Tribe and Darshan play in Washington DC,

then in 1999 PsyTribe started in L.A. bringing Xerox & Freeman, Astral Projection, Deedrah, Infected Mushroom, 3.Turn, Sun Project and continued in 2000 until Today and Beyond!! ... PsyTribe L.A., Tsunami N.Y. and Thump Radio S.F. would share flight expenses for the artists at the time.
