    Is this where I tell you about when I went to the Underground Piano Bar...?!!! Ben

    With not one iota of Schadenfreude, Sas, that set was off the scale. One of the funnest times I've had and possibly the best single outdoor set of techno ever for me - location, friends and, ahem, condition, all contributing. And only enhanced when he later tweeted that it was one of the most fun DJ sets he's ever done. We must have looked amazing to him from the belly of the spider. It was especially fab because of the timing - 10.30pm on the Saturday night meant that most people there had made a proper effort to be there, and not just stumbled across it. I was with four or five of my closest (only really see at) Glastonbury friends. Magical. Ben

    Psytrance is no different to any other genre when it comes to my 95% rule, Fuzz... Namely, there is just so much stuff being put out now, that 95% of all music in a single genre is shit, and that it's invariably a question of seeking out the 5% that is excellent. There are, naturally, some genres that exceed the 95% shit quota, but few, if any, that stake a decent claim to be lower! So yes, when psytrance hits a rich vein, especially when time, location and environment are spot on, it can be spectacular. The Tribe of Frog sound system at Boomtown is as good as any outdoor (dance) rig I've ever heard, and when the psytrance was hitting its stride...WOW. And I'm consistent in my 95% rule - I love techno, as all on here are bored of hearing. But there's a lot of shit techno... The prosecution rests. Ben x PS - for some blistering, multi-focused electronica, have a listen to Applied Autonomy by Robert Lippok. Bloody hell, it's good...

    Glad it was good @zero000 Rødhåd has been on my need-to-see list for ages. Just as one-line review of Boomtown electronica... I think I've fallen a bit in love with (good) Psy-Trance (eek!) and Enrico Sangiuliano was absolutely incredible. Ben x

    Thanks for the heads-up, Fuzz Let's hope they're not too dickish. My pre-festival impression of Boomtown is that it is exactly the ethos and vibe that festivals still should be, so fingers crossed some over-zealous chaps aren't there to bring the spirit down. Have an amazing Boomtown everyone. Ben

    Yes, Thursday, Sas. My Friday night is looking quite trancey and my Sunday night is VERY techno! As I’ve said before, always happy to be around as a rave buddy if you’re on your own. Shame about Saturday night! That’s looking pretty sweet too! 0200-0400h Simian Mobile Disco DJ set could be phenomenal. One of the two of them played a techno set at Latitude last year and it was STELLAR! Ben ☺️
