Even though they were breaking away from the psytrance scene, I think the Son Kite albums (especially Colours) were some of the trippiest + masterfully produced albums.
The very first Iboga compilation, Tabernanthe, was also pointing in a totally new direction, and if you listen to a track like Oryx “Once Upon a Time” tell me that ain’t as good as it gets, and it’s over ten years old.
Flying Rhino Black Rhino (solid and features one of the best tracks ever, Slinky Wizard “Fistfull of Mutants”- who’s with me on this?)
Pretty much anything from Blueroom (like the Infinity Project album mentioned above), but I’ll go with Saafi Brothers Mystical Cigarettes.
TIP Feeling Weird (“They were like noises, noises coming from the darkness, strange, like a whisper”)
Matsuri Witchcraft by Sandman
Twisted (god do I have to pick one?) Dementertainment
For me it’s sad that my experience of the music back in the day was just at parties, we just couldn’t get the releases here, all of the music was brought over by Japanese DJs on DATs. Some of the tracks really blew me away and I’d ask the DJ- Quirk’s Dark Matter, Montauk P’s Turn the Page, Morphem’s Hypnotone, X Dream’s Out Here We Are Stoned and The Frog…
