Introducing Psytrance Guide
A great place to discover Psychedelic music
Dear fellows, I’m pleased to introduce you to the Psytrance Guide:
If you are a millennial, you probably remember the Ishkur’s Guide to Electronic Music. How awesome it was! As a music lover and a person who likes it when things are organised nicely, I used to spend hours on that site.
I was always thinking, too bad that guide is abandoned, outdated, and hence no longer reflects the variety of genres we have today, in Psytrance in particular. But then I realised: I could do it myself. I can do a website that probably won’t be that cool and fancy like Ishkur’s guide, but fun and informative enough, especially for those who are new to Psytrance.
And, in fact, I did.
What is this, exactly
PsytranceGuide.com is the ultimate, up-to-date guide to Psytrance music genres. It covers twenty subgenres, and I’m planning to keep it relevant through time. Each subgenre includes several audio previews that have been carefully selected, a typical BPM range, a little description, and lists of some noticeable artists and labels that are worth checking out if you like some particular subgenre.
Keep in mind that most of those subgenres have no “official” names. Everything on that site is a subject of my personal vision and experience in the Psy scene. However, I did my best and researched a bunch of niche community websites to make sure that I’m not alone in that thinking, and I will keep continuing making it more accurate.
Who is this for
Basically, for everyone. If you are new to Psytrance or if you have a friend to whom you’d like to introduce Psytrance, it’s a great place to discover the whole variety of music spectrum that Psytrance have today. However, if you are an experienced trancer, I’m sure you’ll find a lot of fun too, just like I did when I was making that guide.
A special note to DJs. If you have a large Psytrance DJ collection but everything from Astral Projection to Zen Mechanics tagged simply as “Psytrance”, use PsytranceGuide.com as a reference to update your ID3 tags properly. This is something I use for my 12000-tracks collection, and it works great.
