This subgenre combines the best elements of the two and combines progressive psy and classic psychedelic with a touch of psychedelia, psychedelic rock and even a bit of rock “n” roll.
Psybreaks (or Psychedelic Breaks) is a relatively new subgenre that emerged in the late 2000s. It is probably one of the most common psytrance subgenres currently played at festivals around the world. This particular subgenre refers to the word “psytrances” as soon as you hear it, and is the result of a combination of progressive psy, psychedelic rock and psychedelic trance. Psy Psychedelic is perhaps the most iconic of all the sub-generals of Psy Trance music, with its driving basslines and futuristic sounds often produced with FM synthesis.
Suomi saundi is derived from the Finnish word “Suomi” (“Saundi”), a combination of the words “semi-psychedelic” and “saundis” in Finnish.
Suomi saundi is derived from the Finnish word “suomi” (“saundi”), a combination of the words “semi-psychedelic” and “saundis” in Finnish. Suomisaundier tracks are very melodic, also funky – and sound like the 80s. Psybreaks (or Psy psychedelic breaks) is a relatively new subgenre that emerged in the late 2000s and is the most popular genre of psychedelic trance music in Europe and the United States.
Suomisaundi tracks are very melodic, also funky – and sound reminiscent of the 80s. Psychedelic trance uses resonant bass beats superimposed by different rhythms derived from the drums and other instruments used. It has a distinctive, fast sound that is more used in psychedelic trance, which has its roots in the trance music scene of the early 80s and early 90s, including the use of drum machines, synthesizers and electronic instruments such as keyboards.
The song begins with a new rhythmic pattern, with constant bass lines, then it breaks down and new layers are added until a climax is reached. These layers are used to add new musical ideas, and each new layer is added differently, as in the case of Suomisaundis song, the use of a synthesizer and other electronic instruments.
Early trance tends to be characterized by the anthemic qualities described above, and typically involves dropping the beat to focus on the melody before bringing it back up with a new intensity. By the mid-1990s, the trance had become one of the dominant genres of dance music commercially. The trance sound was picked up by the DJs and the style was bound to become more and more mainstream. While traditional trance styles were often relegated to the background of sub-genres, the rise of electronic music in the 1990s made the sound more commercial and diverse.
Trance is immensely popular in Oman and fills a niche as one of the country’s most popular dance music genres. The booming beat and its distinctive sound may not be good – well-known in Oman, but two local trance DJs hope to change that.

When asked how he would describe PsyTrance, he said: “Psy Trance differs from the typical trance in that it does not sound fluffy or commercial. Trance lacks the ponderous emotional nature of Psy, where trance can be uplifting and euphoric. If you need more information about which genre of music DJs normally rotate, use the list below for reference.
While Psy uses a melody that can be characterized as dark and dark, it can also be used with melodies that reach a level of pleasant harmony.
One could argue that psytrance has a less classically harmonious sound design and is often less melodic, but this is because Goa had a strong influence on eastern melodies. It was often influenced by the sounds of the East, especially from India, and tends to be more melodic than other forms of psychedelic music such as psychedelic rock.
Trance and psytrance are both music that tries to evoke pulsating hypnotic trance or fugue states. Both psycho-rock and meditative music are psychedelics in a way, but Psy comes from psychedelics.
It’s not usually the first dance music genre, and fans often come through other, more accessible gateways. Perhaps you could describe it as partially derived from the house, but it is usually not, as fans often access it from other more accessible gateways.
Although there is no strict definition of trance, songs of this genre can be characterized as accessible and with anthemic, epic, torn and psychedelic qualities. The best way to describe the trance genre, in general, is dance music based on splits and hymns, which can be either very energetic or very chilled. However, not every trance fits into this profile and the song classification for trance has as much to do with who plays the songs as with the music itself; however, song classifications are often limited in time and need to be re-evaluated.
