Progressive Chart: 2009/07

I return again to share a 25 recommendations from the progressive side of psytrance–where the genre bleeds into cutting edge techno. “Progressive” is a word with several meanings; it describes a specific sound as well as an approach to writing music. Truly progressive music must integrate new ideas and influences to remain viable. Consequently, there is little in the way of traditional “progressive psytrance” on my list. The old style is largely exhausted of its creative potential and artistic appeal (for now, anyway). Instead we have a new progressive zeitgeist: a beautiful marriage of psychedelic trance production techniques and the more melodic and emotional aspects of more machine-driven techno music.
