  5. ok so the goa purists comment is gone so i guess my reply was redundant.
  6. Suntrip records, 2019. 1. The Crane 8:39 2. Kraftpaket 8:48 3. Faster Than Light (Wormhole Edit) 7:07 4. The Elite 8:20 5. Barbed Cotton 9:41 6. Ghost 8:04 7. Life Behind The Sun 8:16 8. Disco Valley 8:40 9. Tenderlion 8:02 Battle of the future Buddhas release their 7th album. First thing we can notice is that the dirty sound is gone Instead, the iconic Swedish band delivers a nice polished sound, clearly morning oriented but also with some (rare) dark touch. It's clear from the get-go that the tracks are "inspired by the music played on the beaches of Goa in the early 90s". The tempo is slower than usual, it's acidic and melodic, very danceable and it includes some key changes here and there. As often with these guys, intros are almost non existent which is good for quick mixing and makes it interesting for dance-floors without a doubt. Also, even though the style is different to what we were used to hear from Battle of the future Buddhas, the signature synths and occasional distortion are still present. The rhythm used is more reminiscent of the slower tracks released in the album Demonoizer. The most inspiring tracks have to be #2, #4, #5 and #6, but I did not find any weak track there. The Elite is deep and hypnotic Goa trance at its best. Barbed Cotton is in my opinion the most accomplished composition, it contains more twists, it's less linear than the previous tracks and it ends with a very intense melodic climax! Ghost almost has a clubbish feel, yes funny to say when we know the past output of this band To sum up in a few words, this is an unexpected morning Goa trance album from the Swedes, more conventional this time but very interesting nonetheless. Rating: 7.5/10. Listen / Buy: https://suntriprecords.bandcamp.com/album/battle-of-the-future-buddhas-the-light-behind-the-sun
  7. The video seems to have been deleted by the user. Any other platforms we can use?
  8. Give me some feedback on this new Darkprog track from me:
  9. Median project: Constellation Suntrip Records 1. Antidote 2. Mission Adept 3. It Is Not Possible 4. Infinite Space 5. On The Edge 6. Pandora's Box 7. Sand Of Time 8. Sunrise 9. The Constellation Of Aries I came across Median Project on YouTube around discovering his previous album, In the Depth of Space and that the artist would have a track (Life Line) on Suntrip's recent double 2018 compilation, The 50th Parallel. It was easily one of the best tracks on that compilation. Constellation improves on MP's previous album. It's different in style to the artist's Life Line track on The 50th Parallel which was more gentle and traveling. This is higher energy, more cosmic, climactic, and surreal at times. 1. Antidote starts off the album with a big and colourful, but fairly safe (conceptually) uplifting AP (without ever emulating them). The introductory sounds are good. The music is nice, melodic, and dance-friendly. I enjoyed some of the melodies. Overall though, the song did little to awe or impress me, as if it was afraid to take risks or start off the album with a bang. This is fairly typical sounding too, and the last act could have been a little more varied. 3.5 / 5 2. Mission Adept is far more interesting and kinetic to my ears. This is one step closer to what I like. It's zippier, more intense and surreal to some degree. Still not groundbreaking but man-- those ambient notes coupled with the cosmic feel, accents, and the second act really stepped this thing into high gear. The only part I question / find odd is the telephone, land line ringing effect/accent around 2:30 that occasionally recurs. To be fair, it is altered at times and sounds more alien in nature, attractive when doing so. The third act is good too, but is it me or does it sound a bit too similar to the second? Oh well. On dance floors they'll never notice . Fun, fast-paced track! 4.5 / 5 3. It Is Not Possible follows the edgier, darker (in a zippy/fun way) approach since Mission Adept. To me this is sharper, more fluid, smart, and satisfying. I love the opening act. Also the second act's forth minute takes the song to new heights! The last act gently compliments the perfection of the second act, though it offers less that's innovative/refreshing when comparing the second act to the first. This is an arresting, cosmic number, with terrific synths, atmosphere, buildup and climax to boot. Couldn't the song though have been called, "It Is Possible" considering anything and everything is possible as we expand in consciousness? The song is just too good for its title IMO and will inevitably lift roofs on dance-floors. Stellar track! 5 / 5 4. Infinite Space maintains the clearly upgraded, evolved approach since the second or third vehicle, providing more of the electric, futuristic/cosmic energy while incorporating topical sound/melody designs and atmosphere (!). I often criticize arrangements for being repetitive (Morphic Resonance's Perplexity I felt ran into that recurrently around showcasing some amazing work). Here however I'm engaged and find the delivered arrangements to be great. 5 / 5 5. On The Edge returns to the more intense (less but still very melodic) cosmic feel of "It Is Not Possible". I'm so happy that this artist is committing to stronger, more magnetic songs back-to-back rather than putting lighter (or less kinetic) ones in-between them. The song builds up to a searing, visceral climax that is contagious, especially for high octane/adrenaline dancefloors. As with Track 3, the artist really knows how to deliver monster energy, buildups, and climaxes. Once this thing takes off, it doesn't look back. 4.5 / 5 6. Pandora's Box starts great. The synth at 1:33, and the voice effects soon after is catchy! I love how the music picked, the supporting synths via 2:09. Same with the classic AP-esque melody at 3:19. The first half of this song is really good. Is it me though or does the song seem to run out of ideas soon after? I start to lose interest somewhere midway. The overall structure and key changes progressively sound more typical and formulaic. This song deserved to showcase more variety and development in the second half. Keep us interested! You're a terrific artist! I was enjoying the track so much before it ran out of steam and dare I say, took the lazy route. We get a little adjustment at 6:22, but that's not enough considering the song's first half was so good. 3.5 / 5 7. Sand Of Time is an improvement. There's something about the edgier synths when combined with the more harmonious melodies and atmosphere that really hooked me. I really enjoyed the first act, the midway interlude and something very pretty, elegant in the forth minute (so pretty!, allowing us to breathe) a la fantasy-esque elements! The last act is very nice, incorporating the fantasy feels into the whole. 4 / 5 8. Sunrise is bouncy and tight, offering a refreshingly different, characteristic feel from the start. Man why can't more songs and albums be as good as this one? It's so catchy! I love the buildup to gradually tastier, more ethereal (with zippy compliments) terrain. Also complimentary is the lower pitched synth that supports the higher sounds. The interlude in the fifth minute refreshes the senses, providing a super catchy climax that's almost too good for words! The second act is so fluid, attractive, and beautifully helmed-- the melodies. I love it, and I love the complimentary arrangement in the last act. Stellar track! 5 / 5 9. The Constellation Of Aries builds until a crescendo of sounds that doubles as huge, ascensional climax. l really like the atmosphere, sound/melody work, and feels in this final chapter to what has been a rewarding story. We get a refreshing interlude in the fifth minute followed by a return to angelic sounds and atmosphere. This is one of those tracks I feel, as with the rest of the album-- it's going to be amazing on dance floors. The music is more ethereal, yet loaded with energy, and the cosmic ascension vibes become more prevalent as it continues until everything is one giant energetic wave! I feel like their could have been a little more variety and events leading up to the big one-- but I'm hardly complaining! Great track! 4 / 5 CONCLUSON Constellation is a beautiful, imaginative, and fun release. When it lets loose and commits the majority of the time, it's so exciting, imaginative, and fun! There were only a few times/parts of tracks (1, 6) that felt less inspired, typical to me. Each song has character and sounds different, often stellar, and I love how far the artist took the sheer crazy energy and climaxes at times, as if there was no filter in concocting this thing. Great synth work, buildups, climaxes, and atmospheric. The style and approach I'd say is more akin to Artifact303, Mindsphere, and Astral Projection rather than more daringly out-of-the-box styles like Hallucinogen, Cosmos, etc. For what it does it does extremely well. And from Track 2 forward (with exception to some typical elements of Track 6-- I was impressed over and over again by the sheer vision and quality of this release. The album capitalizes on the cosmic-- hurricane-of-dance-energy approach [conceptually] like an old AP album and reminded me (at times) of what a new MFG or AP album could sound like if the artists had the inspiration and passion to make a Goa album today. That said, there were a few times where I felt more variety and growth within certain tracks would have been nice, but that wasn't the majority of the time since I see what the album's gong for, and when you're dancing sometimes, it's nice to have familiar ingredients to fall back on. The last thing you want is for a song you're into to change into something less intoxicating, and I was rarely not satisfied. I suppose it comes down to perspective and how much certain styles resonate with you. For me I love so many styles of Goa-Trance, and this is (generally speaking IMO) the most accessible one. Also it's been a while since I heard a Goa album with (the way I'd describe) blockbuster sounding production values, e.g., AP's Dancing Galaxy, Another World, etc. Constellation is a visionary, cosmic ride full of super dance-friendly Goa songs, and one of Suntrip's best releases to date. The artist proves that In the Depth of Space was no fluke. Nice cover too whoever did it! Favorite tracks -- 2, 3 (!!!), 4 (!!!), 5 (!), 7, 8 (!!!), 9 (!)

  10. My two favorite bands Mgla and Ulcerate releasing albums this year. And Tool is back as well, Jesus 2019 is STACKED.
  11. Shinouda - 'Love Around Us' is out now Psy-Sisters Music! Grab your copy of this epic progressive trancer here: https://www.beatport.com/release/love-around-us/2693295
  12. press CTRL, and then drag the things down, and you will rezise them all at the same time. =) if you mouseover the small black lines that form the box around the channel name; it turns into a thing you can then change size with. and if you hold CTRL while doing it, it will change them all. and may i recommend an update to cubase 10, its amazing! granted im only on 9.5 but had a 60 day trial of 10 recently. so now im just saving up :p
  13. impossible to answer, but Filteria - Daze (both Wormhole and Big Blue are signature tracks not to mention the absolutely gorgeous Filtertraces), Mindsphere - Mental Triplex, and hallucinogen - lone deranger are three i can think of immediately that has superb if not perfect production
  14. The new modern style of producing/mixing is to make the kick very punchy/compressed. It's a tad too much for my taste although the 'big crowd' is into it I suppose. I wouldn't say the modern approach is by any means what I consider the best. I'd go for something a bit more open, dynamic and perhaps quiet. What I myself like a lot is the Swedish wave of early y2k (Atmos, Logic Bomb, Noma) that were mastered at Tom Puss Point Studios. Perfect Sound!
  15. Infected mushroom or anything by posford.. Other notable producers are Hux flux Sandman Mark Petrick (xenomorph)

    Hi Croatians here, i have the pleasure to visit your country the next two weeks, will be around Zadar, Pula, some lovely islands... My Mp3 player is already prepared, found some good stuff from Neogoa + Lunar Dawn, Psilocybian, Stonebride, She Loves Pablo... What you think, is there some croatian music we definitely HAVE TO LISTEN TO ??? everything electronic or rock is worth a mention, traditionals also, croatian rap maybe? Thanks for answers!
  17. Thanks for the beautiful review bro! Glad you enjoyed it!!
  18. Just 1st listen atm. AP vs Mindpshere is a very accurate description! That is, to the sound signature/mixing style/production style. (Its much more Mindsphere than it is AP, though - overall ) The writing of the music itself; only at 1st listen though - seem to be on the slightly hasty side. I kinda have to agree to a minor extent to what GhostOnAcid said. it seems a bit "arpeggio ultra 303 3/16th ping pong delay deluxe" . But its a great album (still, 1st listen only ) and im curious to see how it grows on me.
  19. I accidentally reduced my tracklist to look like this: Please help to re-open the view..Much thanks

  21. The new BOTFB album.... O(H)M fuckin G! Instant love
  22. Found it a little bit repetitive in the beginning but after dozens of listenings it grew on me. A fantastic release which I like more than "9th" or "To Sirius". "Sacred Sands" is a gem and "Crossing Planet" a real dancefloor Killer. 8.5/10
  23. Even though mixing in key will all but guarantee your transition will sound musical without any clashing of notes, its still entirely possible to create great sounding mash ups while not following the key compatibility chart but youd have to have prior knowledge of how the two tracks sound together to avoid a train wreck mix.. which would make it a crap shoot to perform a "freestyle" session where you basically are picking tracks at random and only going off the bpm compatibility because youre bound to have two tracks that have no business being played together find their way to your decks. But you really should be making it a priority to mix in key whenever possible because its the correct way to mix and will make you look like a professional. As far as the intro track.... Since its a live event and not a set that was designed to be recorded for home listening, i would advise against using an ambient or down tempo intro because people are there to dance. But if youre clever or creative enough to pull off a short intro thats a maximum of 30-45 seconds and is comprised of either spoken word, sound effects, or anything that will sucessfully grab peoples attention, draw them in, excite them, and then build up into a climatic drop of the downbeat of your first track.... You just might make a few fans or 100 that night.
