Is Psytrance completing a full circle ?

I am not surprised to see the older artists branching out and seeing what they can do sonically. Does this or should this affect psy-trance in general....IMHO, no. Having a fusion being played out in front of me does nothing for me. I already respect what these artists can do; whether it's live or pre-programmed. I don't need 6 people on stage doing stuff to be impressed with the music, or get "into it" anymore or have a "wow" experience. I mean I can't stand the posturing that goes on in those experiences. Hell at Gamma Fest Simon got a frigging standing ovation for playing "live"
with music that was all dated. The artist should never be the focus; the music always should trump who's playing it. I even feel weird when I dj sometimes...I feel like shooing people back to the dancefloor.

I am not really sure what this would do for the music either since there isn't any inherent structure when jamming - depending on if it is truly a free for all. I might be cool to have some sort of live changes to the music, but I would rather leave that up to the producer to actually play a "live" set.

I think the coolest and most psycodelic JamBand Psy Trance that no one said anything about is STS9. Sound Tribe Sector Nine, is truly a cool band ahead of the psy fusion deal and with nothing to do with Simon Posford or the Disco Bisquits. Need to give some credit to STS9, and if you dont know them, I'm sure most of you would love them.
They kick ass on CD too.

p.d. I.M sucks!

Yeah, Sector9 rocks but man their organizers and supporters need some positive healing work.Fighting security,stealing peoples things from tents and leaving around 4000 cigarette butts on ground.Bad Bad Bad hippies but very successful events financially and educating the 13:20 technology.

It's funny you mention about the Bad Hippies. I don’t think these kids are at all hippies. I feel that the jam band movement mostly attracts a bunch of drunken liberal arts college boys who have very small consideration for anything other than their own personal fun. It reminds me a little of the psy trance crowd from Mexico. Dirty excessive partiers, leaving tons of bottles, cups, and cigarette butts all over the floor, everywhere. I think the STS9 people are lean more towards the good hippies; the problem is all the other people or the rest of the crowd that come with the other (country rock music type) Jam bands. Here in the USA, the outdoors Psy Trance movement is associated with good energy, permaculture and other ecologically sustainable ideals. There is a really cool environmental wave going on and most of the time, the party goers are great people with really good ideas. Every festival I go, I feel smarter coming out than coming in. A big thanks to the Psy Trance party promoters, helping me become a more intelligent individual.
