hey all,
the psytrance scene in sydney is going down hill as fast as petrol goes up hill.

there were 10 international guests booked for the yr but they have been canceled due to poor turnout at the parties booked so far this year.

hmmm, how do i know this????
you might have seen my lasers at regen 08 (regrowth indoors), DNA (club 77), and Timecode (gaelic club). the scene is going down hill with turnouts well below break even. you all might be soon going to clubs listening to shit house music. the scene can only survive by making a profit. u hippies might think that anyone making a profit has bad karma but hey, who wants to put on parties at a loss, spending ur hard earn cash to make others feel good for a night, no one, so support ur local scene by going too and advertising the events.

you might hear more from me at a later date....

I'd have thought about going if they were outdoors. Maybe insted of having 10 small international parties a year have 1 big outdoor one?

Internationals aren't whats going to keep the scene alive here anyway, Australia's got some seriously good talent and there has been a few times i've been to a doof where the international has seemed crap compared to the locals.

sydney psytrance has been going downhill since god knows when
can't believe you've just noticed and rubbed it in just a little bit more.
maybe psytrance just isn't innovative and powerful enough.....
maybe we yanked tha chain long as we could but no more now.

sad to consider ....but what else?

i dont reckon psy trance is dead, its still prolific around here, i think its more of a matter of the trance party scene dying in the arse, due to new restrictions and the money promoters aren't willing to lose.

as X-Dream put it....

"we create our own happiness"

Don't know if i made any sense just now, but hey, i tried :P

P.S. - hey sooz, i have your cardigan/thing ya left at scotty's. i'll see ya soon, so rest assured its not lost.

The time has come for local people to do local psy parties in their local areas. For years we travelled, to see the best, we all know how it works, so time for allof you to be creative and introduce new blood in your area.

I will be going to the Winter Solstice as it only a local short drive for me. The other party is 3 to 4 hours away. The scene will not die, it will spawn and grow! :twisted:

Biting the hand that feeds you generally isn't a good way to do business. Especially in a scene that is a small as this. You haven't even provided any constructive criticism. Keep digging that hole mate <you might meet Gora on the "other side">

My personal opinion, is that if you have an out door even with more than 1 stage. Showing more than just psy trance, whether it be Dnb or something similar. You have the ability to double the people there easy.

People need diversity these days, i have alot of mates who love doofing. But they just dont want to listen to psy for 24 hours solid. They need some thing different.

Ive been to a few great, smaller doofs that have had 2 stages and the turn outs have been great. We need to come together and start mixing genres, there are alot of great crews out there who wouldnt be able to pull a crowd all by them selves. but combined you could have the making of a great party.

Well, I think it worked well with two parties on this past weekend. I hear that the other one down south went well, and the one I went to was a blast. So glad I didn't have to drive 4 hours to get to a doof, doof, then 4 hours back.

I think, several smaller parties on weekends may help the doof secene survive, then if someone/s want to do a big doof with internationals, that weekend is set asside for only that party, bringing everyone together :)

Well I'm real happy about your dinky little 100 people in the bush dancing to monitor speakers. Someone come tell me when the parties with 600 people dancing to A-grade internationals with a diverse and entertaining musical menu are on again and I'll throw the Esky in the back of the Falcon.

My 2c:

1. Having a diverse range of musical styles makes the night seem more appealing to a wider range of people. It reflects the diversity of the psy-trance culture. It also assists in making people more open-minded to different genres of music, and fosters creativity in musical artists.

2. Each event needs to innovate.

3. Should no longer promote parties exclusively on the basis of having one international musical artist

4. More focus needs to be put on lighting, visuals, decor, spiritualism, environmentalism, creationism, lifestyle - the other aspects essentially apart from the music.

5. Focus on new promotional mechanisms to get new punters.

6. Put the fun back into it

7. Simple stuff, like passing around a fruit platter, shows a general concern for people's welfare.

8. Opportunities should be available for up-and-coming artists, not just those who are established.

9. Better support (and less criticism) for those who are trying to create by those in the community.

10. More positivity and transparent intentions.

Dinky???- Your missin out big time

The small parties are rockin. This weekend had 2 parties both small, both free and both rocked. The music was supplied by local talent, and done for the love of it.
Commercialising the scene appears to just create more drama.

+ Syncarpia had a wide range of music the whole way every dj played a different style.

Why not appreciate how good we really have it here. Or maybe you would be happier living in Brazil.

+ We can hear all that A grade music your talkin about from any DJ. Thats what Saikosounds is for, isn't it?
