So did I, occasionally, circa 1997/1998. There was another one similar--at Bagleys, I think--but can't remember the name.

Return to the Source, that's the one. I've never much liked goa/psytrance, but I had a good time at some of those parties.

I never got to experience Escape From Samsara or Pendragon (yes, i'm gutted about that!) but some of the best tracks I've heard were played regularly at those parties. They sound of those raves probably had the biggest influence on me too.

One of the parties mentioned in this thread is also running the afterparty.. Will post up details when it's officially announced!

Astral Phoenix was always the best. Huge soundsystems, always the latest sounds, really went overboard with the decor, and EVERYONE was on LSD.
Man they were some of the best partying years I ever had. The music was only half the experience.

Come on man, don't rub it in ;)

All of the decor at those raves looked next level - can totally see why it was a music and visual experience.

It's mad to think that Samsara were running at (and selling out) the fridge weekly. I don't really know of any parties that could do that now.

I did see a video of Reaktor in Amsterdam recently. That looked to have the musical and visual experience nailed so would love to go there.

They used to ram the fridge too. Chill out upstairs, chai bars, stalls selling hippy shit and fluoro stuff. The fridge was one of the more commercial parties. It was at Pendragon in the Fridge that I pulled my missus, and I'm still with her 17 years later.
But all the parties were busy... The Tyssen St parties were the best. 4 rooms, big warehouse, super messy.
The psy trance scene in London was really big.
I'm not sure historically how aware of this people are.
Megatripolis was the ultimate though....

I'm tempted to go to this party advertised but I'm not sure I could do it sober...

Then get yourself some Acid and go nuts. 8-)

Though I never listen to Psy stuff, I absolutely love the vibe of psy events. I usually visit Fusion, Nation of Godwana and Antaris Festival and when I resume at the end of the year these events are always the best amongst every other stuff I went to.

It`s such a fucking commitment though right?
The only stuff I know I can get is pure liquid.
And you are essentially signing up for 18-24 hours of a full on trip just on one drop.
I just don`t have the time or the patience for that any more you know.
I think, it may be sad to admit, that I have done my last LSD trip some time ago now.
I used to consume that shit like candy.

However, I`m not adverse to some entheogens now and again to give the brain a good scrub clean (twice a year actually). But they aren`t really conducive to a party atmosphere. I`d much rather be out in the forest or something.

I was kidding mate. ;)

But yeah, i was actually on Acid from the age of 17 until 19 on a weekly basis. I loved Acid and i think it's my favourite drug ever. I mean,once it opened your doors and you change your mindset about the whole world it makes you the person you really are. At least it made me the person i am today.
I would have been much more insecure about life in general if i didn't had Acid trips.

Though i couldn't take it anymore. I had my last one in 2008 on a festival. I knew it was my last one as missus just became pregnant and it was my "farewell trip".

Can't deal with psychedelics anymore, sadly....

I don`t mind em, it`s just the time commitment of LSD. IF they made a short duration version then sure, a couple of hours or so, yay for that.

Hi guys,

Another day, another interview - this time with Phutek...

"If more promoters realised a special event will come from the right musical programming on the night and being more adventurous with their sound-scope. This would educate the scene instead of segregate it. So I support whats being attempted here totally. "

It's nice to see he's picked up on this because multi-genre is exactly what we've always gone for.

Anyway, the full interview is here:

https://www.trackitdown.net/news/show/106048.html

Cheers!

Not sure if there are any trance fans here but Sneijder is headlining the Hard Trance Europe room and he has recorded an exclusive mix for us which is here:

https://soundcloud.com/user-146428706/h ... x-sneijder

Some really nice tech trance (is that a dirty word on Subsekt?!) as expected!

Cheers,
