I think the scenes are too seperate to do a co-promotion with a main stream club night. The best joint efforts are the ones where there is already some cross over. Thats why is not uncommon (although not as common as it once was) to have parties with a room playing psy trance, one playing acid techno and one playing tech-trance/hard trance - theres already across alot of over in crowd.

I also think you get far more mixing it up outside of London. London can be very insular - because its such a big place - you can carry going to parties every weekend just playing one narrow genre of music. However once you get out of London you will often find many of the same people at an underground trance night as an acid techno squat party or underground house free party.

But I think the main stream clubs are just a step too far - theres even very little interaction between them and underground trance nights - let alone psy trance nights. (Although interestingly - Darren Shambhala - a veteran of the London underground trance scene - was briefly a resident at Gods Kitchen - but he didnt last very long - not sure what happended)

I know there is those outhere becommin tired of samey euro sound ..and lookin for something new ..as the offers and feedback on my cd's is enough to convince me ..it would work .


the problem with kitchen they were competin with crasher and majority of the crowd went to booth nights .. crasher who's policy was euro trance ....and so in turn kitchen followed suite ..in the end kitchen won the battle as crasher is strugglin as they have no residents ..

but i shall enquiry .....

Interestingly there are psy influences creeping into a lot of other sorts of dance music - especially some of what was hard house and, perhaps more obviously, acid techno.

And picking up on what you said about people being bored with the current Euro sound - the night I'm involved with in Sheffield has always gone for the tech-trance with heavy psy influences sound and we've picked up more than a few ex-crasher kids, as Gatecrasher no longer runs a Sheffield trance night. I think they have a lot of preconceptions before they come - expecting laods of hippies and wibbly wobbly music - but are always very pleasantly surpised.

But I think that music is only one part of it though - pople go to certain nights as much for the other people who will be there as the music (and that goes for psy nights as much as mainstream trance nights). For right or wrong psy trance does have a lot of baggage associated with it by the mainstream . Escape from Samsara pioneered first the Euro sound, then the hard trance sound to 1000 - 1500 every friday- but because it was (wrongly) percived as a goa night it was dismissed and ignored by the mainstream dance industry.

There has been some cross over into the mainstream - the most obvious being JOOF and Cass & Slide - but its pretty few and far between.
