Ear-catching

I’m not quite sure I grasp the concept of psytrance. Wikipedia says this much:

Psychedelic trance, psytrance or psy is a subgenre of trance music characterized by arrangements of synthetic rhythms and layered melodies created by high tempo riffs. Psytrance lies at the hardcore, underground end of the diverse trance spectrum.

“Diverse” it certainly is.

Anyway, I went digging for examples, and apparently this one was a Number One in Beatport — yes, children, I have an account at Beatport — and it seemed like a good way to torture my subwoofer:

“Chakra” (subtle, huh?) was a joint venture between W&W, a Dutch DJ duo which has made one album and several dozen singles, and Vini Vici, a side project of the Israeli trio Sesto Sento.

This is admittedly not, to borrow a phrase, easy like a Sunday morning, but it was Saturday night before I even heard it.
