Ten Classic SA Psytrance Tracks – Back to the Future Pt.2
I’ve decided to put a list of Ten Classic SA Psytrance Tracks together. If you read my blog regularly you will remember I did a similar list of some of my favourite psy tunes from yesteryear. This time around I decided to look at some classic from South Africa.
So many tunes, so many parties…. so many memories!
Now that winter solstice has passed us the countdown to the summer season can begin.
So while we are still bound to the indoors, there’s nothing better than going some of one’s old music collection and selecting a few killer tunes from the past, but this time focusing on the South African producers. I only chose a few favourites to reminisce for fun; this is by no means a definitive list of the top tunes in SA trance history or anything like that; this is just for fun.
For me, selecting these Ten Classic SA Psytrance Tracks was a nice trip down memory lane, and I guess it sits close to home as the sounds remind me of the small parties and simpler times.
I would like to take a moment to reflect back and congratulate my fellow Psy brothers on making history in the global Psy music collective. It does sadden me that some of these artists are no longer making music as much today or at all, mainly because this is a difficult industry to survive in and unfortunately personal needs change like having a family or following another type of career.
It has been over two decades of Psy trance in South Africa so I guess one has to face that things change and part of that is stopping to look back and enjoy the great memories. I hope you enjoy these Ten Classic SA Psytrance Tracks as much as I enjoyed compiling and listening to them again.
