Onionbrain – Desert Song [Selknam Records]
Deeply mysterious progressive psytrance from a top-notch compilation.
Faxi Nadu – The Deep [Postunder Records]
Distinctly original psytrance with a highly experimental touch. The entire album is full of surprises but this track is particularly delicious.
Vertical – Plastic Plants [Visionary Shamanics]
Ultra-psychedelic forest music in the Parvati vein, literally oozing with mind-altering potential.
Glitch – Sacred Geometry [Psybliminal Records/Ritual Records]
Blazing South African psytrance with just a touch of wobble. Quality stuff for the dance floor.
Mantra Flow – Behind The Shadow [Panzar Produktionz]
Bombastic progressive psytrance with huge melodies and loads of energy, almost like full-on pitched down and beefed up a few notches.
AstroPilot – Emptiness [Sun Station Records]
Pulsating and airy, this smooth piece of deeply progressive trance hits all the right notes.
GoaHuman & Sirius – Solar System [Underground Alien Factory Records]
Downtempo Goa trance at its finest; a pleasant surprise from the prolific UAF Records.
Brujo’s Bowl – Organic Structures [Timewave Records]
I have become a huge fan of Brujo’s Bowl since he appeared on the site earlier this year. This is another great psy dub tune from this talented newcomer.
Hinkstep – Medusa [Omnitropic]
Strange, exotic, and disarming psychedelic downtempo from one of the most musically articulate albums of the season.
