Trance Labels
musical homebase of the psychedelic artists

Their names are printed next to each DJ and liveact, on every flyer of
any big Trance event: so they appear to be just as important as the
artists themselves! Some festivals even have an entire dance floor pre-
sented by one of them. Some became legends and calling their names
is sufficient enough to conjure up a blissful smile across the faces of
music lovers. Many are born every single day, but comparitively many
also die each day. We are talking about music labels.
Providing the scene with its most essential basic essence, the role of
labels in the cultural evolution of Psy Trance is crucial. But despite
their great significance, many labels have been suffering turbulences
for quite some time. Turbulences that might be indicators for times of Edoardo

Adieu Trancecard

Still und heimlich hat sie sich

zusammen mit dem vergangenen
Jahr verabschiedet: Die Rede ist
von unserer Trance Card. Leider
fanden sich in letzter Zeit immer
weniger Partyveranstalter, die
an unserem Vielfeier- Rabatt-
programm teilnehmen wollten.
Aus diesem Grund haben wir
das Angebot nun eingestellt.
Wichtige Info für alle Inhaber einer
noch gültigen Trance Card: Euer
mushroom Abo wird entsprechend
der Gültigkeitsdauer verlängert!

results of drug research. A popu-
lar example was Mephedrone,
which is a drug according to the
laws of most European countries
today. Research chemicals can
provoke heavy effects and side-
effects and since they have not
been examined properly, long-
term effects are unknown. Cur-
rently there are pills containing
4-FA for instance.
