Purveyors of all things psytrance may recall their funny video earlier this year called Future Ducks of London – Why Psytrance has Become Shit which went viral quite quickly and has tallied up over 500,000 views. The video is simply a piss-take on the formula of psy and progressive trance and whilst shouldn’t be taken too seriously, it certainly made a point.
Well, at the end of January you’ll be able to appreciate why psytrance is NOT shit when LOUD take to the stage and deliver what is always a very psychedelic and different set by the duo. Regan from Nano Records says he has opted not to jump on the band wagon and simply try and book the ‘flavour of the month’ artists, opting to rather trust his judgment and introduce SA dancefloors to interesting and psychedelic acts he feels will bring back the journey element to parties.
Additions such as Ryanosaurus from Zenon Records in Australia are sure to peak interest by those in the know and of course Groove Addiction, recently signed to Nano Records, will be keen to debut his live set on our shores. Bayawaka should be good too. His is a heady mix of Psy Bass music, psy ambient meets glitch hop, meets dub, meets techno, meets world music. On the second dancefloor, techno stalwart, Secret Cinema from Holland will be a big attraction along with the imitable Pete Bones who visits us once more. Here’s the line-up confirmed so far…
LOUD (Nano, Israel) | Groove Addict (Nano, India) | Secret Cinema (Gem, Netherlands) | Marc Maya & DeLa Swing – Special Elrow Session – (Elrow, Spain) | Digoa (Zero 1, Brazil) | Ryanosaurus (Zenon, Australia) | Eitan Reiter + Kobi Toledano (Digital Structures, Israel) | Bayawaka (Enig’matik, Israel) | IpCress (Nanoplex, UK) | Rosa Ventura (Brazil) | Solar (Chile) | Pete Bones (Red Ant, USA) | Headroom | Broken Toy | The Commercial Hippies | Sad Paradise | Static Flow | Regan
