Review: Perfect Stranger- Multiverz

I woke up to the exciting news on Friday morning that I was one of three lucky prizewinners for the Psymedia Giveaway I wrote about earlier this week (read it here).  Upon arrival at Trinity, I received an awesome Multiverz hamper (that included 2 tickets to the Event, 4 Perfect Stranger CDs and 2 T-shirts).  What a way to start the evening! Congratulations to the other prizewinners: Cheslyn Oliver and Casey Lynn Curtis. I hope you jammed as hard as I did. ______________________________________________________________ multied Snap shot I took. StereoType had Trinity pumping from the get-go, and warming up the crowd nicely before main attraction, Perfect Stranger, took center stage. The atmosphere on the dance-floor was truly incredible, there were happy faces all around. After 3 blissfully progressive hours, it was Dave Mac’s turn to make turn to keep the dance-floor buzzing ’til the lights came on. And he did. Dave was even kind enough to give the crowd “one last song!” Scott Rennie captured the evening’s events on camera. View the photo’s here.

As you can see, the eye-candy was out of this world. From the trippy decor to one of the best light shows I have ever experienced at a party, well done to ImageMasterBlinkSLAVE and MULTIVERZ for keeping us positively hypnotised.

Review: Herbal Remedy- Mongrels and Wizards

A successful night of grooving tunes and happy stomping was had by all at HERBAL REMEDY: Mongrels and Wizards last Saturday. Special thanks goes to Bianca Köhn,  CAPE TOWN PsyTrance Parties and Psy-Africa Productions for creating a spectacular evening.

First off, let’s talk about the venue. Ragazzi on Loop Street is the cutest and definitely most cozy place to psyk out in during Winter-  perfect for a party that caters to those who prefer a more rustic experience.

Other highlights included a dance-floor full of happy faces, swaying hips and stomping feet, powered by DJs such as StrainDigitalHippieDj SONICPsyTekhFractal and others!
As well as free shooters, and abundant positive energy.

Rolandi Senekal got everyone feathered up for the occasion with beautiful feather hair extensions. Check out her page  RSFeathers to find out more. I cannot wait to get one of these things!

When it comes to trance parties, bigger is not always better.
Herbal Remedy offers a truly unique and intimate psy experience.

One party-goer described the event as:
             “Simply the ONLY decent source of indoor psy.”
