In the mid 1960s the first hippies arrived in Goa drawn by the beautiful beaches, no-fucks-given lifestyle and readily available Marijuana, which was legal until the 1970s.
At the that time Djs were mostly playing psychedelic rock. Jim Morrison, we miss you buddy.
It was not until the 1980s that people like Goa gill (thank you, baba), Laurent and Fred Disko started popularising the electronic sounds from Europe in Goa.
This unique Goa-specific sound in combination with spiritual culture in India gave birth to Goa Trance.
Attracted by these transcending hypnotic sounds people from all over the world came flocking in to Goa and by the 1990s this “special” Goa music was being produced by Djs all over the world (namely Israel, Netherlands, Russia).
Artists like Astral Projection(Israel), Infected Mushroom(Israel), Hallucinogen(UK) dominated the Goa trance scene and because most of the music was now being produced outside of Goa, it was mixed with a lot of different styles of music and people eventually started calling it Psy trance or Psychedelic Trance.
Although the sound originated in the India, artists from rest of the world dominate the psychedelic trance scene.
But the Indian Psychedelic trance artists mentioned below are making us proud by producing some of the best psychedelic trance in the world.
Please support these artists: lose yourself to their beats, BUY their music and help spread this beautiful music to more and more people in our country
