    Hallucinogen - Demention (Alternate Mix) 8:35 Technossomy - The Pyramid (Live Mix) 13:31 Total Eclipse - The Furnace (Summer 1996 Live Mix) 8:53 Tetrahedron - Quicksand (Remix) 7:28 Green Nuns Of The Revolution - Conflict (Live In New York 1997 Mix) 10:12 Quid - Code S9 (Transwave Mix) 7:14 Etnica - Vimana (Pleiadians 1998 Live Mix) 10:15 Hallucinogen - Angelic Particles (Doof Desk Mix) 10:21 Jaïa - Insomnie (Live Mix) 9:14 A nice collection of classics released by DAT Records, these are either a live mix or a remix, in my opinion most of them are improvements of the original. I'll start with a big thump up. The Pyramid is absolutely a monster track, it is by far more entertaining than the original. This live mix is extremely psychedelic, I do like the original but it's not a track I often went back to, but this version is just terrific, it reaches a rare level of psychedelicness. Demention Alternate mix is certainly a great track, same for The Furnace, not too different from the original though. I never heard Quicksand before, it is the most progressive track of this compilation, tribalish stuff, pretty cool overall. Code S9 is a fantastic piece of melodic goa trance, unfortunately ruined by the noisy kickline (similar to Tandu - Naughty Moves). A shame because this is really Transwave at their very best. I think Conflict is a bit improved here with these few extra minutes, it's a classic and you cannot go wrong with this one, solid stuff for sure. The big let down is unfortunately Angelic particles remixed by Doof, the melody is terribly overused, it sounds awfully repetitive to the point that you wonder what Doof was thinking when making this. I think it was an attempt at creating a deeper version but to me it sounds like inspiration was missing. A major disappointment considering how good the original was. Vimana is nice, it's a track that we heard many many times in different versions though. It's pretty much the same as this one. To finish, Insomnie is something special, the original is a clean soft goa track, not that well known and this live mix adds new layers, new twists, it is more acid, more twisted, more energetic. One of the highlights of this compilation. Rating: 7.5/10. To buy > https://datrecords.bandcamp.com/album/va-analog-visions

    01 - Tranquility Base Project - The Flower Of Life 02 - Tranquility Base Project - Where Did The Towers Go 03 - Tranquility Base Project - Quantum Entanglement Released by Timewarp. This EP is a nice surprise. The first two tracks have a rather atypical style. Track 1 is almost beatless, the introduction is very long, very melodic and deep, the melodies are quite complex, high pitched, it sounds very pure and ethereal. A very clean and unusual track, good way to start. Track 2 is clearly the one I prefer here. Quite a slowish tempo, the atmosphere is very spatial, many variations and twists in this track, with some distortion applied on the melodic sequences (similar to Jikooha's style). The small complaint I can make is that the Kick + Bass combo is too dominant, it is often the case in modern goa and tracks may sound less psychedelic because of that. And I would do without the vocal sample as well. But overall, it's really a convincing production. Track 3 is also very varied (there is a triplet part in the 7th minute) that said the track is fast (I would say between 145 and 150 BPM), so it sounds more typical of the style, most modern goa tracks have a similar BPM. It is not uninteresting but it has less depth than the previous two creations. Once again I find that the Kick + bass combo is too audible but for sure it is a very energetic and catchy track. A pleasant surprise to listen to these 3 productions from a new artist, who released this last year > https://www.discogs.com/Tranquility-Base-Project-Strange-Theories/release/12852115 I have not listened yet though. Encouraging EP. What strikes me is the desire from the artist to sound very trancy and yet different to the usual structures. You can listen and buy here > https://timewarprecords.bandcamp.com/album/tranquility-base-project-explained-phenomena-timewarp109-timewarp

    As discussed in this topic I was long thinking of trying to listen to my entire collection. One album (or disc) every day with headphones on so I can truly dedicate myself to it. There are 2 main reasons to it. Firstly, to discover hidden gems. As you grow tastes changed and you start to listen to the same music in different ways. Secondly, it would help me achieve another goal. I want to concentrate on quality rather quantity of the new music I buy each month. Granted my collection is not that huge (I do not consider myself a collector), less than 1400 releases (or 1700 discs) according to my OrangeCD database. Still, it would take me some years to listen through it all, not counting the new music purchased each month. I expect to fail miserably, but so did I when i first quit smoking but it's been over 3 years now that I'm nicotine (and thousands of other substances) free . No hurt in trying. The way I plan to do it is by choosing a label, artist or series and listen to them in order of being released to have an idea of how the sound changed/evolved throughout the years. The issue is that 2/3 of my collection are back in Greece so I cannot start with what I would really like, that being the releases from the legendary greek magazine Lemon but I'll manage . https://www.discogs.com/label/50787-Lemon-Magazine Each listen will be accompanied by a photo of the physical media and a short blurp. Stay tuned.

    Dear Suntrippers, here we are with the announcement of our next release! :) Actually, its a classic release from the late 90s and early 00s that never saw the daylight... And we are sure its one of the best psychedelic albums ever made! Psylent Buddhi - Secrets of the Atom! So, why was this release only released today? Its a long story... During early 00s during one of the Psynews contests an artist put some tracks online that were simply FANTASTIC. I never forgot this music and when we had Suntrip around 2005 we contacted him to release this smashing music on CD. By that time he lost ALL his file unfortunately :( So, we thought all was lost, untill last year our Israeli friend Kobi Harosh came to us with the original files! Luckely we still had the mail of the original producer and we managed to contact him! The rest will be legendary! Are you ready to hear his mind blowing music in FULL quality? Pre-Order: https://suntriprecords.bandcamp.com/album/psylent-buddhi-secrets-of-the-atom Samples: https://www.suntriprecords.com/release/cat/SUNCD53/ Release date: 8th of february! Tracklist: 1. Lunar Core 2. Neura 3. Secrets of the Atom 4. Moksha 5. Convergent Images 6. Metalucid 7. Innerscape 8. Lightswitch

    This is a really good album and I was lucky that master Starkraver actually brought it to my attention as I've been quite literally out of the loops regarding any JR material since about 6 years back. I never got the CD and actually only bought the vinyl. Return of the Pistolero and Voyager 304 has so far been the most stand out tracks on the album. Pistolero brought back with a vengeance and clocking in at about 10 minutes it is clearly something I will use the next time I'm in the mood to mix some psy/goa records. Voyager 304 is a really neat deep acidic ambient techno thing, really good stuff for the likes of me who are a sucker for cross genre tracks. Overall the album is well balanced psytrance that works my ears rather smoothly.

    It is not bad at all. It is good party music. First, awesome cover from Ivan! Now I understand where the other guys on this thread are coming from. The thing is, the psy-trance and goa trance market has became saturated so we quickly have this feeling "I heard this many times before". There is also something about these tracks, the 16-notes melodies are tiresome after a while, in my opinion. That's not unique to this release, I personally feel the same about many other albums that includes too many of these short 16-notes melodies. I think tracks 1 and 2 are the best here, track 1 really contains a lovely rocking bassline, and track 2 has a superb energy together with many modern ingredients that makes the genre interesting to listen to. So overall not bad at all, even though there is definitely room for improvement.

    I'm a big lover of Nibana. His 2 part CD Shūmatsu No Tani is pretty wicked. Not necessarily psybient but it has does the same thing for me as psybient. And then some. Earth from Above is just as good and more atmospheric and a little bit slower and has some live instruments and is very relaxing and is just all around bliss.

    The Infected Mushroom - Mystical Experience pal you probably missed the artist with "the infinity project".. let's start with the uptempo classic albums i think every goa\psy trance should have Ra - To Sirius --> start with this one wil ya... from the start to its end Dimension 5 - Transdimensional -> same... this album is like a trip to the stars Flying Rhino - First Flight -- so many classics there...!! Pleiadians - I.F.O. [I.dentified F.lying O.bject] - i recommend the datrecords release with the live versions too. Etnica - Live In Athens 1996 - dat records release again Blue Planet Corp - Blue Planet Astral Projection - Another World Astral Projection - Trust In Trance Dimension 5 - Second Phaze MFG - The Prophecy Cosmosis - Cosmology Man With No Name - Earth Moving The Sun Astral Projection - Dancing Galaxy X.Dream - We Created Our Own Happiness Darshan - Awakening The Infinity Project - Feeling Weird UX - Ultimate Experience once done with all those drop me a note ill continue to part 2

    i really try to like IFO but it does not work :/ Alcyone is the only very good track for me (of all Pleiadian work...) The remixes made by Morphic resonance are far better than the Original and MR even changed the build up to the BETTER side. So here is my small opinion: Fullon Psytrance: 1.Infected Mushroom - BP Empire 2.The Misted Muppet - From The Legend 3.Dark Soho - Combustion Goa Trance/Psychedelic: 1.Kox Box - Dragon Tales 2.Cydonia - In fear of a red Planet 3.Sandman - Witchcraft Newschool Goa: 1.Ethereal - Anima mundi 2.Celestial Intelligence - Perpetual Energy 3.Ra - 9th

    I think the track Kuiper Belt (Youtube link) slipped under the radar of many, yet it is among the very best. Actually this track would fit perfectly in this album, I would not even mind that it was already released given that not everyone heard about it. This new album is indeed more melodic than the previous ones, more mature, Proxeeus really improved, becoming one of the top names. It is very dense, very intense. The opening track is splendid. And Old Keziah is a crazy track. Very very convincing album.

    I prefer a great flow, layering of multiple tracks for crazy effects, definitely would go for a mix of unknown and known tracks. A story, hell yeah for home listening, at a party I won't be able to concentrate on the story.

    Mind Rewind is a CHARITY PROJECT. IF you want to sponsor the children you'll have to BUY the CD (OR let's set up that The Mango Tree sell's the digital files!??) If this isn't a transparent project..... there is no point going with this project. Just my 0.02€ ofc

    Isn't internet great... I wasn't here for 2 days, on other forums I told everyone to come here cause here it is really about the music... And then you read all this shit! Aaah, people Don't take internet too serious... Make sure you love the music and concentrate on that, if you don't get along with eachother... Ignore! (but well, I have to admit Radi was a pain in the ass, even for me... while the Swedish drunk guy (lol, the name is too hard to remember) did a BIG amount of usefull posts about music )

    A pattern I've noticed is that people who announce that they're leaving psynews never end up leaving. Can you guys just put this all behind and delete these stupid threads. I do enjoy drama at times, but this is just pathetic.

    Would it surprise you to learn that I've received death threats in a newsgroup about mathematics? I'm pretty sure that this being a psytrance forum has nothing to do with it.

    'Top of the TIP's mixed by G.M.S' is a nice "goa" compilation.. 'MWNN - Moment of truth' is some pretty nice "goa" too.. I guess..

    i just got the two albums of OOOD some days ago and i think they are brilliant. i don't know anything about these guys but they don't seem to be very well-known. in my opinion they are underrated because they really rock!
