The Treasure Named Heidi Priebe

Heidi Priebe

It’s been a while since I stumbled upon a treasure of unparalleled value in the depths of the internet. It helped me find my way during dark times and showed me the light at the end of the tunnel.

I’ve shown this treasure to a few close friends, who I felt might benefit from it too. My belief in its value was confirmed, and so today, I share it with all of you.

Kerray – Abstract Sun (2023 psytrance dj set)

Abstract sun (Midjourney)

For those of you who appreciate electronic dance music, I’ve prepared another good set – I would describe it as slower, relatively melodic proggressive psytrance, streaked with acid. As usual, it’s spiced up with a few extra samples and occasional fxed Korg Wavedrum.

You can listen to it on YouTube, or download it in lossless quality as a 667 MB FLAC (here’s the checksum to verify the download). I put the cover together from a few images I generated in Midjourney v5.

Kerray – Karburátor – 2019 psytrance dj set

Psytrance is a strange music—attempts at description would fill volumes, and yet it wouldn’t be the same as saddling the massive, animating bassline, and drown attention in shared vibration— can’t listen to it too much, it’s festive, but when it comes…

This is a mix I got ready for the last party I played on in Prague before the pandemic, truly psychedelic psytrance for dancing, spiced up with Czech samples from Karel Čapek’s Absolute At Large.

Bio here again

I don’t share that many invites, since I rarely play anywhere, usually just local parties in Brno. However Bio is a party that deserves an invitation, since it’s been the best Czech openair party for years, and even people who don’t frequent psytrance parties at all love and visit this one. So come join us – 20th May is nearing.

Summer invitations 2012

Just a short post – these are the parties I’ll be playing during this year’s openair season. I don’t think you’ll meet me elsewhere, because just as every other routine, psytrance parties get boring after a while. 

Oh, yea, I’ll probably be at european Rainbow gathering, but that doesn’t need any further info.

So if you want to hear me, see me, talk to me, you’re welcome.

Kerray – Fruit Of The Gloom – psychedelic psytrance dj set

I’ve been mentioning a lot lately that the music releases we’re used to include under the ‘psytrance’ genre (which was shortcut for psychedelic trance) are often not psychedelic in the slightest. When DJing, I have long ago stopped shunning older and downright old music under the “must stay on the edge and play new/rare tracks” mindset – I can’t play it if I don’t like it, and there are many true gems in the older (5+ years) releases, gems which most of the people who only discovered psytrance in recent years don’t know. And this is what the final product looks like. Lots of these ancient but sparkling tunes combined with some of the good stuff of today, made for dancing but also complex enough for exacting listeners. Intended foremost for the people who don’t know all the classics – but if you do, just recommend it to your friends, even those who don’t know psytrance at all.

Kerray – Synaecstatic (beatless ambient music set)

Not much to say – beatless ambient bliss, use it for relaxation, meditation, sleeping or as a background. If you want more similar music, buy the CDs these tracks come from – or, if you don’t have it yet, you can download my vitaminek set (and other stuff, but that’s not ambient). Download or play:

Kerray – Uroboros – Psychedelic Trance Set

Uroboros was quite a good party – it ended twice even before it began, and twice it came back. Perhaps it should have been named Phoenix. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed playing there, from first light of dawn to first rays of sun. Perhaps for the first time it happened so that I could play almost all the music I planned to play – at other times, I have to change the plans, because what I wanted to play just doesn’t match the mood of the party. Not this time, and since I also wanted to create a new mix for quite a long time, I used a lot of what I played at Uroboros to create the following psychedelic trance set: Kerray – Uroboros set (182MB, 100 min., local mirror [Play] [Play]) Cover is by Donald E.

After two years, another Boom Festival takes place on the usual spot in Portugal, and we’re leaving by car on Sunday after tomorrow, for cca three weeks. On one hand, I’m really looking forward to the whole incredible experience and at the same time I’m interested in seeing how the global “psy” subculture has shifted further from the psychedelic roots and how the organizers take that into account. Besides the additional world music stage, introduced last time, there should be a new stage with breaks, dub etc.

Originally, I aimed to prepare some interesting content, kind of a psychedelic reality game like I did at last two -bio- festivals, but it didn’t quite work out. I’m still working on the script, as the writing turned out to be a lot more demanding then I expected, particularly when combined with a full time programming job. However, as it’s going to be something that can be set up for many times in different places, I’ll continue working on it, make it really special, beta test it at some other events, and who knows – perhaps in two years, it will be at Boom.

Anyway, have you seen my report from the last Boom Festival in 2006?

MöBio 2008 party report and photos

The MöBio psytrance festival last weekend was very good – again. The reactions are overwhelmingly positive. All the work put into past years increasingly starts to pay off – the -bio- parties are among the most significant psytrance events in Czech republic, but they also attract a lot of people, who don’t otherwise visit “regular” psytrance parties. The positive word of mouth has grown quite strong. People know that they’ll get relaxed and have a pretty good time. I heard that the festival paid itself off for the first time – after all these years.
