Psytrance, Psychedelic trance or psy music is a subgenre of trance music which finds its roots in Goa Trance, an electronic music style that originated during the late 1980s in Goa, India.

The goal of psychedelic music is to assist dancers in experiencing a collective state of bodily transcendence through, similar to that of ancient shamanic dancing rituals, hypnotic pulsing melodies, basslines and rhythms.
