Full-on is psychedelic trance that originated in Israel during the late 1990s. The expression “full-on” is taken from the first out of a seven compilation album series and the first album ever to be released under Hom-mega Productions in 1998, titled Full On, which comes from English slang.
Other sources say it comes from the “Full” “moon” festival’s name, whilst others argue that it is derived from a phrase widely used to describe particularly high-energy music (“That tune is really full-on!”). Full On is without a doubt the most popular form of Psychedelic Trance.
Owing to big basslines, catchy hooks and some borderline commercial and pop elements this style has the most mass-market appeal.
The most easily recognizable elements of full-on psytrance are the so-called “rolling” bassline, which crams two or three short bass notes in between each hit of the 4/4 drum, the fast changes in music sequences (max 32 beat for sequence), and a more energetic melodic/uplifting nature. Often heard in clubs or during the nighttime hours at festivals it is popular in Israel, Brazil, Goa, Florida, Victoria and the United Kingdom.
