I personally don't consider any of the tracks above to be psytrance at all, save for the Burn in Noise song. Oliver Prime is dark progressive trance, J00F releases a psy track from time to time, but for the most part plays trance (1440 Minutes I would say is entirely trance with zero psy). Ovnimoon and Cosmithex both have their "psy" influence, but I think they lean more toward the trance side as well.
I've heard this stuff referred to as complextro.
I like it but it's not trance. Sounds more like a blend of progressive house, electro, dirty Dutch and dubstep.
Totally agree with Sedna. I would say most people are brainwashed into thinking the cheese that Armin plays constantly is proper trance, which I dont think it is.
Alot of trance from non-comerical producers just gets lumped under the psy-trance label because of it being more underground.
What I mean is I believe that the stuff he plays is trance and the trance I like but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the only form of of the genre. And by that I'm not trying to differentiate it into another sub genre.
Ah hell, that doesn't sound anything like the point I'm trying to get across.
Basically they're both trance (slow and cheesey and hard n fast) but not sub genres of.
