    It's big, it's beautiful, it's Median Project - Constellation Artist: Median project Album: Constellation Label: Suntrip Records Release: May 20, 2019 Tracklist:- 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 This review is about what is in my opinion one of the most extraordinary release of modern Goa to date. An Album that encapsulates the cosmic tone of the genre in it's own unique and captivating way. Personally I can honestly say that only 3 or 4 other albums have ever granted me this much excitement, and none of those have been been in this style and this style is by far my favourite. This album is not another level, it is the level. If your brain converts sound into colours and shapes then this is going be one vibrant journey of electricity. The album art by ShivaOMArt really says it all as far as the spectrum of colours that you are going to be blasted through goes. You're going to experience warm rust pyramids filled with gold, strokes of amber splashed across azure temples and gas giants of cerulean creating reactions with scarlets. You might even spot some periwinkle In the distance. 'Yea yea, it sounds amazing but it's not a game changer' 'Sorry huh? What did you just? Not a game changer for whom good sir & madam?' It is certainly a game changer for Sergey who has advanced his skill to another level. The layers are as balanced as a spirit level placed by Vladimir Shukhov himself, the leads rip through the other sounds and at times dance around in prisms of energy above your head while at other times zip through your head taking you to star nebula's. Vocal samples nestle themselves neatly into tracks where they are placed, but it's really the other elements that make these tracks stand out. The dial tone in Mission Adept, the boombastic roar in It Is Not Possible & the unforgettable screeches for the first 4 minutes of Sand Of Time, my god even a 4 second sample of that track gives my brain dopamine thrush. The melody of Sunrise & The Constellation Of Aries make me drive exactly 4 kilometres over the speed limit with a huge smile on my face. It's all cosmic Goa, but not like you have heard before. Median Project has placed more emphasis on the moments that really make a track stand out, the introductions and outro's have been given more detail, the tracks have been filled with 'Bigger' sounds and more effort has been placed into introducing periphery sounds that make every listen unique. I have had this album since it's release, so I have had plenty of time to listen to it, the honeymoon period is over and I can with all certainty say that this production of art is up there with the greats of the genre and the broader spectrum of Psytrance. What Median Project has done is find a way to take cosmic goa up to the next stage of its evolution, I can consider this album an advancement towards the style that others (Hopefully) will build on. It does have all the NeoGoa elements that some people (Not Tsotsi) often find tiresome but the arrangements are what keep this exciting. For those of you that think that this genre has nothing new to add, crank this up when the sun goes down and prepare yourself for a visit to solar systems far away. As always I would like to thank Sergey for taking the time to deliver this masterpiece to us and making the world that much more colourful for it. His hard work really does pay off. Thanks to all others involved in the project including Suntrip for an interstellar addition to their catalogue. One Final word. The description of the album calls this Astral Projection meets Mindsphere, but I think we can surely agree that from now on this is pure Median Project an artist unto himself. https://suntriprecords.bandcamp.com/album/median-project-constellation

    Well my first album was RA - Earthcall and then Artha - Dream Telepathy, before that I labelled the album Loud - 5 Billion Stars as Goa. I didn't listen to any old school until about 2-3 years into my experience and didn't like it until one special night with me and Hallucinogen. How about that for credentials? There are pretty big differences between the two. But I think we already know what they are. Old school had a sense of play about where you can almost feel the artists on the other side of the track. The good albums certainly feel like they come from artists with a broader musical range who loop A LOT LESS, probably due to hardware. The tracks have quirks and more subtle changes that are a result of live knob twisting and all that. The looping that does go on gets tweaked so it doesn't sound so same same. Also the tracks have room to move, much more space in oldschool. HOWEVER, Kick drums are often weak and even if a good melody is present, having starting from heavily layered music I miss the craziness and extra psychedelia present in Neogoa layers. Some Old school blows my mind and I love how nothing is placed in a track without a purpose, but the real eargasms, increased heart rates and jumping around comes from Neogoa. While I hear the creative genius behind the classic old school albums, I get far more lost within modern classics.

    Meh. Old school and new school is a thing and we certainly didn't invent it in this thread. We are simply trying to figure out what exactly new and old school means

    Glad I got the CD, because it is a great piece of chill music. Quality production by Jerome as usual. It combines light and dark together, but you feel the goa vibe everywhere. Albeit in a chill environment. This one's gonna be in my downtempo list of 2019. :D

    All right then, here is my story. Mostly accurate give or take a year, it's been a long time since I had no interest in music until the age of 13-14 (94-95) when my father bought me a Sony compact Hi-Fi for getting a degree in English language. It had a lot of buttons and shiny displays so I had to use it. So I opened my sister's drawer (2 years older) where she kept her cassettes and started playing them one after another. Mostly pop and rock of the time but also some rave and house played that time on the radio. I didn't pay much attention then, I could only hear a bang bang anyway However she also had a cassette of MJ's Bad. I really liked it but I remember thinking "it would be much better if there were no vocals, just the music". And after a while I realised that there was some music with no vocals, the bang bang thing. So I started re-listening those tapes with a bit more interest. One of those tapes had Scooter's Back In The UK. I used that track to wake up every morning for months. I guess that's the point where I was hooked in electronic music. Soon after I found out those genres were called Rave and it's harder sibling, Trance. So, as a teenager, I started looking for Trance (because, you know, harder). I went to my city's biggest record store (Musical, Patra, Greece) and bought my first vinyl. Titled N-Trance - Electronic pleasure with computer generated cover art. It was obviously trance. Well, no. What the F*** was that? Tried to return it the next day, but in vain, no returns accepted. So this time I go to another record store, smaller, run by the daughter of the Musical's owner. Although I didn't know back then , I got lucky. She knew about electronic music. I asked for a recommendation. It was between Trust In Trance 3 or X-Mix - Electronic Storm. She said get X-Mix, much deeper stuff. And it was. But I don't think I was ready for the subtleties of Techno music back then. But I was getting closer. And then it happened, goosebumps all over my body with the opening track of Goa-Trance Vol. 3. Struck gold. This was music I knew it. Goa Trance. Soon after I also purchased Chakra & Edi Mis - The Promised Land and The Truth Of Communication. Thank you for ever (I don't remember your name). It was diificult to get Goa Trance vinyl so after those buys I turned to cds. My first purchase was Goa-Head Vol. 1. I had payed back then 10,000 drachmas, equivalent back then to 30 euros. How much do you pay now for your music? The rest is history. For a couple of years I was purchasing alongside Goa some Jungle, Drum & Bass and Rave but I had found my lifelong companion. I was happy.

    I was going to wait till I listened to it 100 times, but after 20 times I think I'm getting the feel. This is one of the best goa trance I have ever heard. We already had a great share of good music and amazing artists, but Median is right up there. Shining. Where his album on Global Sect was also very good, Constellation has enormous depth, euphoric layers, and fantastic balanced frequencies. I'm very happy to hear that Sergey tuned down the snares and claps, which were very present in his previous work. I'm listening to parts of Constellation every day. In my bed, in the car, ... He manages to transform a whole idea into music. Only given to the most talented. Every track is a space journey. Every track puts a smile on your face. Very good review Tsotsi! Constellation deserves that. We will look back and confirm year after year that Constellation is a milestone in Goa history. I'm sure of that. Grab it while you can!

    Wow there is some fuuun stuff happening in here! This thread has been so goooood, even if to just remind me some tracks i have forgotten haha.. Also, I never heard Quazar before! I don't know how but yeah, never.. and it just blew my mind! As for the original topic.. So hard to pinpoint as most of you already worked out, but Ethereal/BPC/Synsun must be some of the first and well Filteria is his own thing but he gave it that huge kickstart of energy at a perfect time.

    I still absolutely refuse to accept "NeoGoa" (especially with that capitalisation) as a genre name. You can try to convince me otherwise but you'll fail. To me it's all Goa Trance. Period. And as for "the first newschool track", it's exactly as difficult to define as "the first goa trance track". There was a bit of fluctuation around the turn of the millennium. Off the top of my head, the Ra / Electron Wave / Dimension 5 trinity comes to mind, and also Tranceform Records with Blissful Moments / Ethereal / Ypsilon 5. Astral Projection's Amen isn't really oldschool either. Filteria was among them too but I don't hold him in nearly as high regard as most of the scene seems to.

    I am just curious how and when other people started to hear Goa psy music... how was the way that led you all to this awesome music? How has your music taste changed over the course of your life? Is there even better and more mature music than Goa out there? Is there a next musical step upwards after Goa? Would be very nice if you would dive into your past and write down your approximate age + the music you loved at that time(Style, Bands, DJs...everything!) Youtube links woud be cool to. Maybe one track that describes the phase in your life the best! I will do it for myselfe first ( i am born 1990): START: 3-5 Years: My parents told me that i loved Russian chanson music and a guy called "Oleg Gasmanov" ...i was singing it all the day xD 6 Years: I had a magical experience with Trance music on the family birthday party of my 18 years old cousine...my parents have all the euphoric dance expressions of me on video Tape...yeah It was basically commercial stuff like Paul van dyke...But for a child pure Magic. Fantasy. Wonderland. Space. Insomnia. Madness. I remember this track very well...it sounded very "hard" to me at that time. 7-10 Years: Modern Talking, russian Synthpop, Eurodance. CDs from my parents... My favorite at that time. 10-13 Years: An Italian school Friend gave me a cassette with "Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory" from his older Sister and at this point i became a hardcore Linkin Park fan! I always liked the electronic elements in their music. After Linkin park i changed to the Emo side and my new flame was stuff like: Evanescens, Within Temptation, HIM, Nightwish and...I AM PROUD OF IT OK!!? 14-16 Years: I dont know how but i managed to download a Sven Väth Mix from the Internet. From this point on i Loved stuff like: Extrawelt, Pig&Dan, Boris Brejcha...but at the same time i was also into Progressive House and heard stuff like Deadmau5 or Glen Morrison. All in all this phase could be called Progressive Techno/House. 17-20 Years: Through Youtube i had the first Contact with Fullon and ProgPsy in 2006-07. Astrix, Astral Projection, Audiomatic, U-Recken, Vibe Tribe, Bizzare Contact, Sesto Sento and many more. Man that was a crazy time!!!!!!!!! At first i didnt even knew what goa is...until i bought Goa Head 2 on a flea market. I dont really know how old i was but Astral Projection - Kabbalah blew me away on this day. I remember the moment very well... Since GH2 i could finnaly distinguish between Goa, Psytrance and Progressive. 20-22 Years: Neurofunk, Dark Dubstep... 23-26 Years. GOA. 27-28 Years: Goa but more often the darker side of it...found Twilight Fullon for myselfe. Now: Darkpsy, Dark Ambient, Dark Wave/Synth, Ebm, Industrial, Psychedelic/Space/Doom Rock. so thats basically my musical "curriculum vitae" for now... You are welcome to write yours my friends!

    Since this psy rave thing actually comes from the old ebm in the 80's, it's not that strange. Nitzer Ebb and Front 242 was played on the beaches of Goa. So I've been told anyway. This Hocico is not from the 80's, but great anyway. Or just some classic Skinny Puppy.

    Ok, my fisrt exposure to electronic music was mid 90's (I'm that old!), it was some eurodance like 2unlimited and Russian synthpop (Technologia, Biokonstruktor), I discovered Prodigy a bit later and then EBM like Wumpscut and Front Line Assembly. There was only so much music I could find in Russian "music sores" (actually these stores were just kiosks with pirate tapes near metro stations, I was lucky if the tape had a proper tracklist) so I didn't even know goa trance existed. Unfrotunately I switched to heavy metal soon, all cool kids in my school were into metal and punk rock/alternative so I had no other choice, din't want to be called out "raver", "druggie" and such. The next decade I listened to metal, later I also had some interest in progressive rock, blues, fusion and stuff. Played guitar all this time but not really professionally. One day in 2005 I woke up and suddenly realized that I can't listen to any song with any guitar sound in there anymore. I went to a kiosk near the next metro station to buy some "other" music, they had some Paul van Dyk tape playing and I immediately relaized that this was what I needed right now (or it was Paul Oakenflod, i don't remember... some of these Pauls). I was an eager trance listener (van Dyk, van Buuren, Tiesto, Dj Feel and shit) for next few years until I realized that I can't listen to the same supersaw arpeggio in each new track anymore, so I started looking what else was there. I discovered liquid DnB, then psychill, then Infected Mushroom and Astral Projection. In 2010 I occasionally found VA-Orientation 5 released by Dacru (I was actually looking for something else and bought it by mistake). And now I'm here.

    Wow, you are lucky! Straight to GOA Trance...and also quite good goa trance(Cosmosis, Dragonfly rec...) i had first to go through tonns of Fullon to finally find real Goa in the Ocean of Psytrance...but i love also the Fullon times! Yeah the parties xD i remember how i always met with my friends at friday to make a warm up with Psytrance. Then we went to the City Clubs to watch Girls and hear stupid Electro House or Techhouse xD After the Club we heard Psytrance again and talked about the Girls and how stupid they are nowadays....i want to be 16 again! haha

    Euphorya is nice but it seems that they try to sound like Digicult but don't quite manage to nail it. This is a Dream has a melody which sounds like a rip-off of another track Around 4:25. Anyway I agree that morning full-on with smooth sound and good melodies is now really hard to find. These tracks caught my attention recently as something that could be called an evoltion of classic SS/Protoculture sound of sorts (the second one the bpm is too slow though, perhaps more like old Liquid Soul stuff).

    Thanks guys for the suggestions. The Orion track fits indeed and I like it, so I will put this one between Logic bomb and Juno reactor, thanks AP : ) @ Manuser Kollage is one of my least favorites from Prana, it sounds more like Joujouka, not a fan of this track, sorry. Tim Schuldt - Absurd is alright but I find I can find better. Thanks anyway : )

    Hm, will check it out Also for the beginnimg of hippie Goa.. read Goa Freaks by Cleo. It isn't dedicated to goatrance but it is about the time before it, the more very beginning of Anjuna etc for the hippies. Goa. She for sure spills the beans. Sad but true. This shit always happens. Anyway, you could say that the book is highly recommended 'cause of it's dissapointing and revieling truth. I read it in 2008 while travelling India.

    Evolution is like a Wave...for now we go upwards FOR NOW... but its a wave with small Steps in it if you zoom in. I (maybe Astralprojection too) talk about the small steps in the wave. There are progressive and avantgarde people out there who do this steps. They sometimes jump over 5 of them. I suggested "SynSun - Quazar" because i found this track randomly on "psytrance from paris" and i was blown away because it is far more superior in the production/buildup than any other Goa track from this time + - 3 Years! this guys jumped up 10 steps in the wave of evolution and for now it is the first newschool Goa track. No Doubt...they jumped up and got on another Level insted of swimming in the river stream upwards with all the others. "It's just evolution of a certain music style... don't think there's a point where you'd be able to pinpoint an oldschool track from a "neogoa" one precisely" we want to find this older one jumper who did the most similair Goa Trance compared to recend Newschool Goa Music i was in love with it so i made a mix with Quazar as starting Track...all the other tracks are from 2018+ just compare them with Quazar...specially the Suntrip ones "SynTrip Rec."

    ^ that is one nice reply Tsotsi, and a lot of good posts in here about the subject in general. So SynSUN, they won the spot? That is pretty cool, ha, who would have known. Cool for them. What an honour to be pulled up like that all the way in 2019 Or will the sole OT spot go to another artist, another track? Didn't the "Old is Gold" Goatrance releases contain some of the very first NewSchool Goatrance also?

    yeah i think synsun - quazar is the clear winner. and as for what constitues new school - for me im convinced that the main characteristic is a very clean sound, that the artist worked very very hard on to perfect. as in the old days, these guys were actual musicians, they played actual music, and the music was always in the forefront. the technical aspect of sound design was limited to the gear they had. some gear sounds amazing just from the get go which is why the old school has that sweet analog warm cozy sound quality. but; it happened automatically. now with new school, most producers (certainly not all) use software. with that comes an advantage - they have averything imaginable avaliable to them to truly perfect the mix. it will still not sound as warm and analog as it did in the old school. there, that is what i have learned and concluded, from this thread what the difference are =)

    The first compilation from Suntrip and what a journey it has been. 14 years on and this is still a high quality release. Just a few comments... Way back then I sort of panned the Aes Dana offering, but hearing it again I just can't help but get lost in its lushness and gentle entrance to start the album. The Yesod track early on is so hyper and nimble, but then shows it's more controlled side. Seems like this was the only track he ever released. The flute melody in Babylone Beach is one of the most soulful and melancholy sounds I've heard. Has their ever been a sound that crystallized a geographic area like that? You can not hear that and not think of perhaps a Persian kingdom. Sublime. The Ka-Sol track...I, uh...14 years and I still don't know what to make of it. And probably one of my favorite Goasia tracks.

    Exactly! This is why I don't even bother pretending to select "the best" (or create those types of lists). Something that might hit the spot and move me at one moment in time or for one emotion might be the exact worst song for another mood. The music I want to listen to while driving home at 5am is regularly different than the music I want to listen to at 4pm while heading out to meet up with people.

    This thread is impossibly hilarious I'm not even gonna claim The Best, as there isn't one, but one that I feel doesn't get as much appreciation as it should is: Satori "Razor"

    Yeah that is the standart evolution formula for almost all electronic music...tracks are geting louder and more overloaded nowadays. There is a clear process of switching quality against quantity/thickness :/ Pleiadians were well known for their successful "multy layered" Trance, so the people are trying to recreate it. And they hope for glory and success if they copy an all time classic Band like Pleiadians/Etnica(wich i am not a fan of...i mean Pleiadians!) Today every child can rip FL studio and make music on the PC...in the 90s it was more difficult to get the hardware for producing. So talented Kids with rich parents could afford it...and do electronic music. And parents would not buy this stuff if their kiddo isnt playing an instrument for years already. So what i mean is that maybe 80% of 90s goa producers could play instruments/make quality music before they made Trance! This cheesy fullon wave in the 2000s was a group of untalented kiddos with PCs trying to make classic goa... thats btw the reason why all the good guys from russia and eastern europe came after 2000. You simply could not buy the equipment/PC in the 90s russia...even if the talent was there. Once i tryed to make Goa by myselfe too and i got a medium fullon/Goa hybrid track...a simple chord progression is not enough to get this blissfull alien like music. A trance track needs an unique and strong Character to sound like "Goa". And yeah...i hate this people too who think Goa trance MUST have something to do with India/Oriental culture xDD sorry for mei Englisch.

    I completely agree on skarma, he has a very nice and warm sound but to my ears it still do sound like software though. And that's fine :)

    Mirror's Edge series ... soundtrack by Solar Fields - and a really good one you can also list Unreal ... combat themes are probably what you like: And if you really, really like Unreal Tournament ... there is a huge scene devoted to remixes and some of them are absolut psytrance ... may I direct you to this (imo underrated) thread: https://www.psynews.org/forums/topic/73233-unreal-tournament-psytrance-remixes/ héhé
