Summer’s Up !
Spring… and the angels sing! It is not only that intoxicating hormone cocktail provoked by some proper UV radia-
tion onto our heads that sets our mood to euphoria. No, it also the knowledge that the outdoor party season is just
in front of our doors now, which gives us a reason to feel frisky and happy. Actually, it even gives us multiple rea-
sons, as there are heaps of promising open airs all around Europe and beyond its borders. A huge bandwidth of dif-
ferent concepts and venues give rise to quite some expectations for a very exciting summer again! Let’s start an
expedition to some of this year’s adult playgrounds!

Kristian T: Every style has invaded the Goa scene,


making the name Goa Trance an illusion. Techno, Pro-
gressive House, Tech House etc. Now don‘t take me
wrong. I love all those styles but I do believe its false
promotion to sell a Festival or party as a Goa Tran-
ce event when the muisc got nothing to do with Goa
Trance. Point is that it has become a fashionable word
and is being overused to promote music that‘s got
nothing to do with the Goa Trance vision and scene.
[…] I have been part of this scene since 1994 as an
artist and DJ so I know it all. Obviously some of you
have a hard time understanding my message.

Marco P: Everything was better in the past!? Final-


ly ... We‘ve got no time machine. If you want it

the energy, the colours, the fun, the good vibe

much but u cannot stop dancing and bother other
people with your critics when they are having some
sort of good experience. It’s killing the vibe! If you
don‘t like the sound, just temporarily do other
things- In festivals you have so many things you
don’t get to see when you keep complaining about
a DJ set… This Goa Nazi joke showed very well the
opinions of some people who are afraid of change
and this, my friend, is conservatism.

wish I could have experienced a Goa festival back in my earlier years of life. However as someone new
in the festival scene, I couldn‘t be happier at these festivals. Because I know I can walk around just like
I want to and generally there is some music that I love there but that doesn‘t mean I‘m going to stay at
that stage though. Systems with competing influences are balanced ones!

Jacques C: I love all forms of music myself, but when I go to a Psy Trance party I would certainly like to
hear Psy Trance or good Progressive. Is it wrong to want Psy Trance played at a Psy Trance party? Are
you wrong for not liking all styles of music? I think most people listen to more than just Psy Trance at
home and out. So what’s the issue really being raised? What I do know is that there has been a huge
drop in both quality and creativity in the Psy scene in the last few years and thankfully it looks like its
slowly changing again.

Guido D: Maximilian You are real-


ly nuts, sorry but the scene has to col-
lapse with people making this kind of
joke. What a luck I do not see such
a lack of good taste in my personal
environment.

A feeling of discomfort about Non- Psy Trance music at


parties is not something our editorial just made up. This
phenomenon is the subject of countless discussions going
on in the internet today, and it found expression at many
big festivals during the last years. Quite afew of you might
have seen the persons at Boom festival, for instance, who
wrote slogans like “Minimal is not Psy – Don’t fuck my
drop!” on their backs. Among some Psy Trancers there
seems to be a feeling of an “invasion” (quote from one
of the Facebook comments) of other music styles, which
are in consequence responsible for different looking peo-
ple and a different vibe on “their parties”… Sounds like
separation and conservatism? Maybe. But on the other
hand: If you order a cheeseburger would you be pleased
if you get a hotdog? Was everything better in the past,
when one could still rely on a cheeseburger? Or are there
those who think so incredibly boring, they lost their abi-
lity to get excited about something new?

Thanks a lot for all your comments, which give


interesting answers to these questions!

evidence of the onset of hallucinations
- even in obscenely large quantities. A
seemingly more logical explanation
emerges from during the 19th century,
when poisonous chemicals were added
to cheaper versions of the liquor, to pro-
mote a more vivid colour. For that being
said, the herbs used in traditional absin-
the do have both painkilling and antipa-
rasitic properties.
Amazingly, the ‘Green Fairy’ spirit lasted
more than 100 years in the under-
ground. It wasn’t till the 1990s, when
manufacture and sale of absinthe was
being reauthorized within countries of
the European Union. Nearly 200 brands
of absinthe were being produced in over
a dozen differing countries, particularly
France, Switzerland, Spain and the Czech
republic, as of February 2008.

Kylie Van Eerden

To drink absinthe, place a spatula-


shaped and perforated spoon on a
glass filled with 2 cl absinthe. Upon this
rest a sugar cube, and let water drop
over the sugar one drop per second.
The sugared water leaves the glass a
milky colour and the ideal absinthe-
water drinking ratio is 1:4.
