Lurking around on Psyforum
So, way back on Psyforum in 2005 I discovered Chickens of the Infinite by DJ Lurk - a two part mixtape with a silly name that grooved from lush progressive trance into funky upbeat psytrance via a blend of smooth bass and floaty melodies.
Chickens of the Infinite Pt1
Chickens of the Infinite Pt.2
The mix was conceived as a compilation of tunes that Tom liked grooving to on his ipod over the summer and Pt 1 especially had a top spot on my ipod for some time after. Anyway, I recently found Lurk's 2008 update which showcases the more techy, minimal side of progressive trance at the moment, sounding more pulsating and floaty than minimal techno or tech house but with all the subtle builds, drops, noises and harmonies. Enjoy...
