    Artist: Sky Technology Album: Rainbow Spirit Label: Neogoa Records Release: September 29, 2019 1. Hidden Secrets 2. Escape From Babylon (Sky technology Remix) 3. Winky Dink And Nod (Album Version) 4. Fake Dance 5. Katedra – Collision Course (Sky Technology) 6. A Ray Of Light (Album Acid Version) 7. Just Do It 8. Kids Don’t Eat Alien Protein (Album Version) 9. Rainbow Spirit 10. Memories of Another Life Sky Technology is Dmitriy Kolosovskiy who has released 4 studio albums including Rainbow Spirit. I kind of remember Spirituality although I Don't think I ever listened to it through and through, the rest of his albums are going to require some searching from me. I have thoroughly enjoyed his features on various compilations and have until now thought that he mostly did Neogoa and down-tempo Goa which he rules at. I’ve listened to Rainbow Spirit from start to finish, back to front, and shuffled all about. I get the most enjoyment on the Shuffle option and decided to review from that angle. 4. Fake Dance: Damn this fella is going fast and hard on this album. If I heard this on a dancefloor in the deep hours of the night I would come out the other end a jabbering jattering jittering mess. For at home listening it’s a little too hard for me, but That doesn’t mean I can’t see the place for this crazy ass song. The Final louder and more intense lead is pretty wild and enjoyable. In fact it’s absolutely wild. 6. A Ray of Light was one of my favourite tracks off of the Call of Goa Vol. 3 Compilation and the Album Acid Version just brings it to another level. Sky Technology brings the energy right from the start to the finish and doesn't skimp on the light rays of aural sensation. 8. Kids Don’t Eat Alien Protein (Album Version): Does he mean they don’t eat alien protein anymore? Damn kids have changed. I believe this to be one of my favourite on the album. 9. Rainbow Spirit comes at you with more another machine gun bassline and a bright Nitzho melody that turns into a pretty exciting midway break before coming back just as hard. The main break and final leads stand out here, the rest of the track doesn’t quite hit home for me. 2. Escape From Babylon comes in a bit of an easier pace to keep up with and instantly brings the vibe of a banger. This is most certainly my album favourite. The leads whip around each other while the kick pounds onwards never giving up. 10. Memories of Another Life starts with all the potential of a track that could be chill. Aint gonna happen though hombres. The track really takes off at 3:18 and gives us a taste of something we haven’t heard on the album yet. 3. Winky Dink And Nod has all the feels of a Nitzho track found in the deep forests of Scandinavia. Squelches and bubbles envelope the track and keep it dark and deep. 1. Hidden Secrets is tribalistic goa and another track with a difference on the album. Maybe one of the best produced tracks here with an entire catalogue of elements working towards a beautiful piece of work. 7. Just Do It is another fast and hard machine gun pound fest. Not a favorite but definitely appealing to those that like it fast, hard, relentless and extreme. 5. Katedra - Collision Course (Sky Technology Remix) Obviously this isn't going to be some rinky dink Sloa Version of Collision Course... Wait. Has Katedra even released the original of this track yet? Well gonna be a gatling gun firing rounds of bass in your face with the fastest strobe light we have. I really loved the screech lead that came in at 2:40, but have to stop myself from being disappointed that it doesn't spiral into something more amazing. The only reason this thought hits me is because the final bar sounds like it's about to jump into a different rhythm and start bouncing all around the place, instead it repeats itself onward. Putting this unreasonable expectation aside Sky Technology's remix is balls to the wall great and finally a fast and hard track that I can listen to over and over again. That is the album folks and Folkettes. A nice mix of Goa and super fast Goa that changes the music I expect to hear when I see Sky Technology release a track. Other than some bass lines that I wasn't a huge fan of I think the album has mostly solid tracks that will tear up a dance floor without a doubt in my mind. I have about 6 favourites which is decent 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10. Most of the track sit between a 7 - 9 minute run time which is completely appropriate for their intensity. Trance2MoveU made a comment on his spirituality album in 2016 "Dmitriy Kolosovskiy from Kiev is a guy that has taken goa to places that may make some feel uncomfortable yet refreshed at the same time." Well that holds for this album too, a little bit of both for our pleasure. Well done to all involved, another extreme album to add to the growing collection of chaos that has been released in 2019. https://neogoarecords.bandcamp.com/album/rainbow-spirit

    That's it exactly. The internet, which actually was created to be open, accessible and "everyone can start a website or platform" and which was a very fractalised mass in the past has "conglomerated" - the users formed bigger chunks and they got bigger and bigger and now we only have "some" huge chunks left and the smaller ones in between dry out or migrate themselves into the big, making them even bigger. We also may not forget that the ways people use it have changed - Ormion delivering the best example here. I am not much different to you man, I enjoy Russian Failblogs or other "plain entertainment shit" after a hard days work much more than actual meaningful discussions, as pityful as it may sound ... and there are many like us. In the past there were not so many ways to consume entertainment, so we went here and postet a bit in Offtopic... And also not to forget, Goatrance or Psytrance are more popular nowadays and the means of promoting it have been taking different routes aswell, using other platforms or not relying as much on BBS forums such as ours. The "silence" that has spread over this forum here is a sign of the changing times... I already said something needs to be done. I'm thinking about ideas.

    Hi everybody Since I discovered Psychedelic Trance, there are approximately 1-2 years I have never ceased to observe what I had observed in the Hardcore scene, Industrial, Rock,...etc : there are so many styles and sub-styles that it becomes a mess to find a way and we sometimes end (or even often) to nonsensical debates about how we will appoint or not appoint, define or not define, this or that music or this or that style. So I decided there are now more than a year to create a doc in PDF form gathering all styles of Psychedelic Trance and their characteristics without making pies of texts to infinity and beyond. It will be a little more than a year (or almost, must take breaks anyway ) to skim all anglophone and francophone forums, searching the most representative artists of every style, and recovering some information and definitions stuffed with spelling mistakes on Wikipedia, clumsy repetitions, discount translations all straight out of the English version of Wikipedia passed under Google Translate, and other calamities, and to correct then to complement them. Obviously, if you find an ugly lack of agreement/spelling well hidden in the bushes, an incomplete definition, or one of your prefered style/artist thatsmasheseverythingbutreallyeverything that is not referenced, feel free to sh*t in my face please let me know, it will be corrected in the shortest possible time if need there. Last update of the PDF: 03.10.2019 at 11:56 p.m. (Paris time) Here is the link for the English version: https://www.dropbox.com/s/x7po6dz18w4e0rm/Psytrance%20(EN).pdf?dl=0 Here is the link for the (original) French version: https://www.dropbox.com/s/eoi1kr5tbnydhul/Psytrance.pdf?dl=0 /!\ The Dropbox online reader doesn't support external and internal links in pdf files anymore, so you must download it and open it with a pdf reader if you want the links to work /!\ Here is the original (French) post on the French forum "trancegoa.org" : https://www.trancegoa.org/forum/trance/40857_mise-a-jour-n50-la-trance-psychedelique-dans-son-integralite Thank you for your attention

    You have lots of good mixes on your channel! oh i was raving to old-school 20 years ago, back then also collected some Distance & Transient cd's etc. It then took a backseat for many years while i discovered so much other musik, but now with cd's being cheap and easily available thanks to online culture i'm right back in it. Old-school goa trance has musically aged like a fine wine. Regarding new scenes you find superficial, i guess then you're referring to the mainstream side of things. This guy (a producer called Loud who's quite known in the psy-trance mainstream) said it best: Why psy-trance has become shit But hey bygones be bygones and all that...the mainstream has always been a more diluted homogenous ('superficial') mass-representation of whatever specialist fields it got its ideas from. Just look at modern pop...surely the most superficial type of musik in the world today. But if people like it, then so be it...jedi.

    Wouldn't that classify us an unintelligent? Are dolphins or chips or mice less intelligent than us? We define intelligence by using a measuring stick that it's measuring limits are defined by our own, so it's not really a successful measuring device. Wow, I was doing the same thing (although the other way around) talk about coincidence.

    Just like RTP said life happened I'm so exhausted from my job and stress that I have no energy to write something anymore. When I'm online I usually watch stuff like youtube, or funny stuff like 9gag or even a forum, but only as a reader. I'm still visiting Psynews and I will always love the place, but life hits you hard man. I'll try to be more productive from now on.

    Agree with all the criticism, bullet-pointed here for convenience: - no adventure in the composition, you've heard the first 2 minutes then you've heard it all already. - too many elements fighting for space, just sounds like a wall of sound. Even if you can fixate on something, it doesn't really take you anywhere. - the mixing/mastering makes the above issue even worse by squashing this space. How did it come to this? I blame these things specifically: 1) computer screens. The modern producer spends too much time in front of one. His senses are focussed on seeing, not hearing. Back when Goa was made on hardware, the producer only had tiny screens. He was working with an array of knobs, sliders and keys. The senses used were very tactile: combining hand-to-ear coordination rather than eye-to-ear. Would a guitarist play his instrument with more soul if he could play a software version? 2) the loudness wars. It's ruined a lot of music, not just Goa. Check this video out from 2006: it demonstrates how the loudness war ruined the seminal Dire Straits album, which originally came out in 1986 to demonstrate & promote optimal dynamic range from CD audio. Dynamic Range which has subsequently been crushed by cash-grabbing 'remasters'. 3) the drugs don't work anymore, or rather they've changed. There's less psychedelics in the scene, more narcotics (uppers/downers). 4) emphasing the kick: old-school often had low-frequency kickdrums with the envelope starting a little soft, which sat nicely in the mix, allowing the other elements centre-stage. New-school often has higher-frequency sharp-attack kicks, which have a harder presence and a higher volume, this doesn't encourage focus on the other elements (presuming the other elements are worth focussing on). I've tried a lot of modern goa, from different labels. The only artist who stands out so far is Astrancer, unfortunately his work has also suffered from the loudness wars. Ra's 9th is ok, but that samey metallic kick sure does get tiring. There's still a lot to try out, some highly-rated Suntrip CD's I haven't spun yet so hopefully I'll be taken on a better ride, but I had to turn off that Epoch Of The Terrans comp as it was just numbing to listen to. Putting on an old Goa Head directly after was truly soothing to the ears. More I think about it, the more I see Forest-Psy as the spiritual successor to old-school: tells trippy stories, weird surprising stuff can happen, decent quality control of CD releases with the loudness wars thankfully not being able to destroy all the elements (because the producers tend to mix their individual tracks with awareness of space). Some forest-psy pieces are works of art, just like some old-school, and will be enjoyed decades from now (just like any good music regardless of genre). Disclaimer: as I mentioned in another thread the above is from the perspective of home-listening. I understand and respect the argument that this new-school sound works well at big parties. I do still party myself, tho' rare when compared with my youngling days from late-90's/early-00's. The only recent festival gig which really got me dancing like old times was Goa Gil's monster-set at Ozora 2017. At least there's light in the dark...

    Hello psyheads! Feel free to check out my new album "Antipodes of the Self-Conscious Mind". This album is filled with ethnic melodies and shamanic vibes, while still having lots of powerful psychedelic impacts. Hope you will enjoy it ;) https://youtu.be/SMk93qe3IYk

    i've just ordered this on CD as i really rate Astrancer's work. Hopefully there'll be a bit of room to EQ, maybe even stick the signal through an expander.

    It's a unique album, now checking Discogs and indeed two different people doing the mastering: Mastered By – Alienated (tracks: 2, 3, 6, 7), Henrik Munch (tracks: 2, 3, 6, 7), Jens Bundgaard (tracks: 1, 4, 5, 8) Producer, Written-By – Jeffrey D. Jensen*, Thomas Larsen A shame, you would at least expect the mastering to be harmonious and similar throughout the whole album! I haven't listened to the album for a while now but remember for instance the hi-hats sounded very quiet in some tracks and louder in others.

    its so sad for me because i think it is one of the most unique and precious Late Goa/Psychedelic works. Its a coherrent crazy-dark ride into the mind of a Scandinavian or nordic human. Even if it sounds very metalic and surreal it fits very good for the forest. I was jogging some times with this album through the forest and it was awesome(beside the Quality :(((((() Who was this one Guy who did this genozide to this album ?? xD

    lesser known but definitely awesome olschool track Comes from this compilation https://www.discogs.com/ru/Paul-Oakenfold-A-Voyage-Into-Trance/release/12454 which also has some other gems, like this one The Mandra Gora track aslo exists in different version, but i like it less, it's faster and more agressive sounding but misses some of these darker/atmospheric qualities of the original. Tovarisch Stalin disapproves it.

    Cyclothymic, love this track. Great to see Key to the Innerverse, a track that I grew on me, by the way added Eye am the I to my previous post. Great track but the sound quality is not the best for mxing because it sounds very quiet compared to most tracks.

Its our fault why psychedelic trance music turns slowly into shit, becaude wa all want to be the best and feed our own ego...make music for the world. If yo all really love oldschool Goa trance then you should forget the law and this imaginary man made structures BLJAD. The Heart has no structure it gives love

    Damn, JaraLuca got us all by surprise here! A huge jump forward since his last delicious album. This one is even bigger and better. Lots of unpredictable turns in each track, highly danceable and lots of power. It's a fresh album without copying himself or other artists. Very impressive and candidate for goa album of the year!

    Have you guys had a chance to read new Mr. Pollan’s book - “How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression and Transcendence,” ? He has a lot to say about on LSD, psilocybin mushrooms and other psychedelics and the way we can use them to heal mental and emotional afflictions. Check this article here - it will help you get an idea what the book is all about and give you some insight on new science of psychedelics.

    Juno Reactor's sophomore effort, 'Beyond The Infinite', is one of a kind. It's maybe the one Goa album that hews closest to its synth-pop and EBM roots, while taking it to that next level with acid-trance lines, techno strings and pads, and tribal/ethnic sounds. 'Guardian Angel' begins with ominous pads and a sample of Burt Lancaster from 'The Swimmer.' Immediately afterwards, we're whipped into a frenzy by a Front 242-esque bassline. Percussive electronic noises and frantic riffs that arc and spark keep the tension high. A little simple and straightforward, but that's what makes it a perfect introduction. 'Magnetic' is cool and seductive by comparison, with low chants sampled from the movie 'Baraka', a bubbling acid groove, and Spanish guitar-like melodies. Electronic bird calls echo and synth bleeps swim by like a school of fish, as though we were hearing the field recordings of a zoologist on a robot planet. 'Ice Cube' simmers in Yello-esque ambience before launching into a blisteringly intense run, proving that you can make a low tempo track (120, IIRC) without sacrificing ferocity. 'Feel The Universe' has an utterly gorgeous intro, with one of my favorite synth lines of all time. Some people prefer the 'Otto edit' of this track that dispenses with most of the introduction; I will never understand those people. It's like cutting the first movement of a Beethoven symphony. After the track has gathered momentum, it reaches escape velocity... industrial, found-sound percussion (SPK much?) combines with tribal drumming, alien sound effects, and Eastern European-sounding riffs in a cosmic cacophony of noise. I'd love to know where the inspiration for this track came from, it's so rich with ideas. 'Razorback', only available on the US version, is far from a filler. Cool, glassy synth lines bob and weave through pounding beats, punctuated by the occasional tribal yell. Aggression and subtlety are perfectly paired throughout. 'Samurai' is a slightly updated mix of a 1993 single by Jungle High (Ben Watkins and Johann Bley.) Juno by any other name is still Juno; this version has a little less acid-trance feel than the original and more of an industrial rock quality, which is probably Johann's sensibilities coming to the fore. Spoken-word vocals with a message of love and devotion provide the calm at the eye of the storm. 'Silver', the sole downtempo track, weaves contemplative futuristic atmospheres. More Baraka samples, monk's voices cut up and stitched together into a future-funk rhythm. 'Rotorblade' is maybe the most beloved track here, and it deserves all the praise it gets. Effervescent bass and percussion undergird gated synths, whooshing and breathing noises, and a bluesy electric guitar. All this is led by poignant electronic strings that hit you right in the feels. Powerful, mature, and complex. It mixes seamlessly into the final track, 'Mars', which takes the power, spaciness, and emotion of the previous tracks and somehow manages to sum them all up. Can you tell I like this album? Due to its storytelling nature, 'Beyond' is an album that works in multiple contexts, from armchair voyages and night drives to the most frenetic of dancefloors. Some tracks are a bit 'ravey' and unsubtle ('Guardian Angel', 'Samurai'), but they're balanced out by the deeper tracks, and lend their energy to the whole. Most of all, though, I love the album for its sound design. Nothing is harsh, mechanical, or overly 'synth' sounding here. Instead, these tracks come alive, yielding up a synaesthetic fruit salad of flavors and textures that doesn't sound like anything before it or since. There are a very few Goa releases that transcend the "Goa" or "trance" label. TIP's 'Mystical Experiences' is one of them. This is another, and deserves to be inducted into the canon of great synthesized popular music. 'Bible of Dreams' may be the album that brought Juno mainstream attention, but this remains their most accomplished and complete work. A masterpiece that sets the bar for what a psychedelic trance album could be. 10/10

    Thank you sir, for my next song title! I find this album just awesome! I so love Crossing Mind's swirling-melody style and key changes and the sort-of-chaotic noises floating all around at the same time. It's great when I want some goa but not in the mood for any of the various neo-goa artists that can start to sound too similar after a while; Crossing Mind is definitely unique in this! I've loved The Holographic Paradigm since the songs were dredged from the dark recesses of the internet, and I love The Inner Shift!
