Hey, so I listened to it, and it’s fine! No dodgy lyrics, just a few nostalgic samples from UK television. It’s old-school “techno”, i.e. post acidhouse EDM, and could have been made in 1991 were it not for that certain modern sheen, the clinical perfection of the contemporary DAW.

Thank you for the mystic crystal revelation.

And the mind’s true liberation, as well.


#4

I don’t know why I never thought to ask that particular question.


#5

Seemed more like psy-trance, and the DJ so self-identifies. Who am I to argue?


#6

It’s psychedelic trance, mate. I had a ten year DJ career spinning this stuff before I lost all interest. I cannot tell you how many hours I lost digging through bin after bin of record, trying to sift the gems out of the formulaic uninspired garbage that sounded just. Like. This.

And the scene? Pseudo spiritualist appropriators of woo, the lot of them convinced that the world would end in 2012, poisoned to death by choking chemtrails summoned by Apocalyptipoctl, Aztec god of ॐ and divine conspiracist.

I was going to hazard ‘Goa trance’ but I didn’t fancy my chances so just put “techno” in scare quotes.


#8

*clutches childhood tightly*


#9

No flared base? meh


#10

As god is my witness I thought you wrote “no flared bass?” as a criticism of the music


#11

In fairness, both work as criticisms…


#12

That is definitely Goa/Psy Trance.


#13

Sure. But with the other crystal set I can get uhf downstairs.


#14

Covering all the basses, I see.

Woo swigglers… ouch. Radically accept the lot of em. Doesn’t mean snark is out of the question.


#15

God I hate weed culture


#16

Now I’m hearing “healing crystal dildo” to the tune of “Crystal Blue Persuasion” in my head.


#17

Isn’t that Jason Statham dancing?


#18

#19

What kind of lubricant is recommended? asking for a friend.


#20

It would honestly never occur to me to search for the term “healing crystal.”

Dildo, on the other hand?

That’s another story… but certainly never a combo of the two.
