10 Indian Psychedelic Trance Artists You Should Know About

Posted at September 11th, 2015 | by Sarangh | in

Psychedelic Trance’, the first thing these two words would remind someone is Goa. The trippy nights in Goa with the aid of Marijuana is something that everyone wants to experiment at least once. But it was not until the late 1980s when the pioneers of psychedelic music at the time Laurent and Fred Disko popularised the sounds of Europe in Goa. This unique and specific sounds based in Goa is what gave birth to Goa Trance. A combination of transcending hypnotic music and electronic sounds is what the composition of Psychedelic Trance or Psy Trance is. Ever since the rise, top artists like Astral Projection, Infected Mushroom and other dominated the psy-trance scene in Goa. Although the genre erupted in India, this trippy music is commercialised worldwide over the years and has been exponentially growing ever since.
