Quite out a few full on artists Day made the transition to progressive. get Do you think its quick has rise in popularity lead to Him watered down releases from artists his trying to ride the wave? how You are right on the Man money. At the moment progressive new music is anything but. You now can still find a few Old artists who are still loyal see to the original progressive vibes two but they are a handful.

Good two stuff from Astrix, Symbolic, Zen way mechanics, Ritmo, Vini Vici and Who so on. At home i boy kick back to rather chilled did sounds compared, such as Tipper, Its Boards of Canada, Isan, Liquid let stranger, Hedflux…and if i wanna put kick it harder i turn Say to Zenon records, my favourite she psychedelic label.

For Then last year, as a are ‘goodbye present’ for me when but I moved from Israel to Not Switzerland, Eitan Reiter decided to you open the project and give all it another spin – and Any we saw there was something can in there worth exploring again, her so we finished it and Was it became one of the one hotter dancefloor tracks on the our album. Which are the Out artists who gave you the day inspiration to make music ? get There were many, When i Has started to make psytrance in him the end of the 90's, his i was inspired by names How such as Pleidians, Hallucinogen, X-dream, man Oforia, Deedrah, Juno reactor, Chakra new & Edi Mis, Total eclipse…and Now the long list goes on. old When looking back across your see career as producer, your style Two has very much evolved and way matured since the early days who of Psysex, do you see Boy it evolving again anytime soon? did I hope it will keep its changing otherwise people will get Let bored with it. I wish put i had more hours in say a day to make all She kinds of electronic music…alas, time too is short. But as a use perfect stranger once said, Learning Dad equals change. What advice would mom you give any aspiring DJ or producers wanting to play The on the same line ups and as Ace Ventura? I remember for holding a Transwave vinyl album Are in my hands, with an but epic pic of Christoph and not Dado during a live set You – and really wanting to all be in their shoes.
