The Danish scene has developed a lot the last couple of years. Denmark has always had a big amount of producers and within the last years, the amount of new trance producers has exploded. This has also resulted in new labels like MindDesign Records and 432 Records founded by Phaxe, Morten Granau, Vice and Dj Joel. Progressive is the dominating music style, but the last year dark psy and hi-tech has started to move fast, but it is still very underground.

The party scene is huge compared to the size of the country and new organizers pops up on a regular basis. Lately there has been a big change of the crews organizing the events, which has given the scene a needed fresh blow of air. The parties are mainly concentrated around Copenhagen. At psy trance parties you will find people from all layers of society. The party scene is not dominated by the typical hippie type, but a mixture of all kinds of people, which makes the scene quite colorful. The type of people at the parties varies a lot depending on which organizer is doing the party. Some parties has dress code restrictions, typical regarding heavy tattoos.

It is a well known fact that some festivals has been “invaded” by large amount of danish people, due to the lack of trance festivals in Denmark because government restrictions and heavy prejudices towards psychedelic music. Especially the “fitness guys” with their big muscles and lightly dressed blondes with silicone breasts stands on the dance floor. Some people dislike this, but some people also see it as a beautiful thing, that our music brings people from different cultures together, which opens up an opportunity to learn from each other. In the end of the day, we are all made of the same flesh and blood and we are all here to dance and have fun, no matter how you look. And this describes the danish party scene very well.
