Free Music Friday: The Psytrance Top 10 Podcast is a weekly podcast featuring podcaster Grover Reed III’s favorite psytrance tracks:
The purpose of me doing this podcast is to share my love of psytrance with everyone. I live in the Bronx, NY. From the first psytrance album I heard was “Converting Vegetarians” by Infected Mushroom and I was instantly hooked. I started researching different artist and the rest is history.
I am open to new artist. That’s what this podcast is essentially about. Having a gateway to give and receive past and present psytrance tunes. I also listen to trance, progressive trance, and uplifting trance. My favorite artist are Judge Jules, Andy Blueman, and GMS.
