^NitinS track 'streets' was picked out on the TIP infinite excursions comp. I have massive gaps in my listening & much more consistent ears and info out there. I only know bits of that 'asian underground' at a compilation level, but a stand out act is Bedouin Ascent (Kingsuk Biswas) really next level abstract beats - his website has a few CDr to order which are well worth a listen. I remember finding a promo of his science/art/ritual in Probe records 22yrs ago and his music still sounds like it's from the future on another planet.

+1 to System7/MirrorSystem - so many great collaborators they've worked with too. I read that Miquette is more techno and rates JeffMills contrasting with SteveH who thinks himself more trance. Miquette has worked with that VCS3 since Gong days, KingBritt posted about how it was tough to figure out what was going to happen - ha, looks more like a battleships meets arcade game interface. Miquette also picked up on iOS kit now too (SimonP & BenjiV used Animoog on a clip once too - Miquette is using the keys of that to fly other kit too I think). Soz for rambles but SteveSpacek is a fan of iOS stuff too, the mixtape he did on ninja is brill.

(I once quickly listed their water/fire albums, Cosmoafrique, KerrierDistrict, BodilyFunctions and GlobalChillage as faves) SebTaylor has such a great catalogue of music to explore too. Lol, I was gently escorted from the venue for smoking a bud at the 21st RTTS gig he played at.

Chapeau to you for listing Yello and FelaKuti and there's half a dozen new names to me on that first list. BrianEno name-checked Neu! with their motorik styles & TonyAllen (drummer with FelaK but other neat projects too) as the two most important beats. I love how playful Yello are and there's some fantastic sounds in their music.

Here's a quote from Linda Perhacs:
"If you follow a fad, it's very temporary. If you centre yourself in something that is eons old, you line yourself up with the highest vibrations in the universe: more light within, more inspiration within, more love within"

Which made me think about GlobalCommunication (MarkPritchard is Africa hiTech with SteveSpacek/Troubleman/Harmonic33 etc & TomMiddleton is the other half of the duo - love his 'liquatech' stuff and he's out as a shroomster too). Ooh and MarkP album features Linda on a track. Anyway their 76:14 is sublime & I remember them saying that they made all their own sounds, no presets so even 20yrs on it sounds timeless/fresh.

I'm fascinated by your mind NIONN. I ve never known anyone with that knowledge about Styles,Artists and with this analytical capacity (360).You named A Guy called Gerard Bernard fevre trent and the psy - world too.. You are a rare person who has experienced through multiple situations without identify with them.. is it a coincidence that I ve found you right here in the presence of Simon?

It's interesting, for me at least, to imagine a different version of history...like what if Goa beach crowd had grown up more as ravers? Or if they'd been more acid-disco fans than rockers?

Chicago (1200mics) posted underneath an enthusiastic remark from DJ Tristan concerning how rocking his crowd was, that it was a bit 'sausagey' - I guess as it all gains momentum it's hard to challenge, but I have a persistent notion that psytrance is fundamentally doing it wrong. Which is a shame because great crowd and setting...would love it if we could pretty much start again tho with concepts about appropriate music.

"no new genres"
One of the RinseFM dudes said he doubted we would ever see a new movement forming, something about how the Internet means that a bunch of producers with the same vibe can't just appear from nowhere anymore.
But, I'd almost say the opposite - like all that 160/80bpm stuff hanging out from Japan to London, USA, Poland etc - not sure how all of that would have taken shape without web presence. Also accessibility of diverse music for influences is sooo much further on that even a decade ago. I remember MixMasterMorris saying he was hanging out for kids for far away places to make music - fascinating to hear Electronica from Instanbul, the Sahara & India.

Music made a little while ago that sounds fresh/timeless still - via a pick by Magda I found Laurie Spiegal's Expanding Universe from 1975 which ended up being the first track on the Voyager gold space disc. Computer & synth music from 40yrs ago. Brenda Ray naafi slice too! 1979 diy motorik that could be a Trentmoller single. Also Bernard Fevre (AphexTwin said some of best music he'd ever heard) who made modular-synth disco and space ambience. I also like the tape/radiophonic stuff via TrunkRecs which is bonkers experimental 1950s Electronica. Maybe there's scope to do reverse musical archeology and plant tunes? I love the harmonic33 stuff from MarkPitchard & DannyBreaks - defo sounds inspired by some of the pioneers. Also music that skips genres entirely like Fhlosten Paradigm & Jlin and some of the silly/great footwork fusions by DJ Earl or the Japanese crews like Satanicpornoccultshop.
