    I guess most of you are mistaked. It's about mixing not the mastering. Katedra himself has always had this style of mixing: bassy, muddy, industrial. I know because we collaborated long ago on 'Magic Science & Imba - Ghost Town' where he was part of Magic Science, and you can hear his style in the track. Even if I am not, nor personaly nor professionaly for it/this style of mixing, I support and respect his ideas and presentation of his music. And important thing is freedom which not many labels give you these days but Global Sect does which is amazing. In most cases when I finish and send premasters to label they say 'It's too clean', 'It's more Fullon than Goa', or it's not clean enough or buyers prefer more this or that bla bla bla... here Katedra had complete freedom to express himself musical and production wise. Just relax and enjoy in what he delivers to you as his own Goa Trance without genre/style rules and boundaries

    i cannot think of a single occasion that wouldn't instantly be better if psytrance was playing. even if there is no special synergy between whatever you're doing and psytrance. that's true for anything. think of it this way, if you fall from a ladder and break your arm it's shit. but if you fall from a ladder while psytrance was playing you can say: it's shit that i broke my arm while falling from a ladder but at least logic bomb was playing

    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.

    Since we're all mostly using Bandcamp here on Psynews, I didn't find any topic where we can share the findings, so after a friend of mine told me yesterday about full-discography by Bluetech for only $5 over at Bandcamp I was thinking about making a topic here where we can share some good findings. I'll leave the Bluetech link here and will continue to share my own findings (in psychedelic trance, chillout, dub styles). Feel free to drop your own name your price / free goodies from Bandcamp Bluetech - https://bluetech.bandcamp.com/

    Label: Biijah Records Country: Guatemala Released: 08 Feb 2019 Style: Psy-Trance Bandcamp Tracklist: 1. Ritualtool - RustyBass 08:18 2. Propagul - Alien Seeds 08:44 3. Full Face - Coconutrees 07:00 4. Mubali - Fu, Interrupted 07:26 5. Smuds - Turn A Sphere Inside Out 07:33 6. Ohmpapa - Mutchi Swutchi 08:48 7. Shivattva - Samurai Lifestyle 07:45 8. NoizeBug - Underground Religion 10:37 9. Scope vs PsyVader - Bluemoon 07:54 Biijah Records, although a relatively unknown label from Guatemala, is a long-running imprint that has been releasing some fantastic darkpsy material since 2010. This is the second compilation titled Alien Seeds that gathers some very talented producers that deliver real goods. It takes a lot to make me enjoy darkpsy, as it isn't my favorote branch of psy-trance, but Alien Seeds 2 has some amazing productions and I've eventually decided to write a full track-by-track review. REVIEW 1. Ritualtool - RustyBass 08:18 The opening track of the compilation is quite good. In the first half it plays with some spooky voices, and then switches gears to more traditional psy-tools. What I like about it is that it always stays subdued, which kind of works here pretty well. 4/5 2. Propagul - Alien Seeds 08:44 It takes some time before Propagul puts something edible on the table, but even then this track tends to get a bit dull. I like some of the parts though. 3/5 3. Full Face - Coconutrees 07:00 Here's an unusual number. The track follows an unconventional structure and is in a constant flux. The way its built makes it really interesting, because you never know what's coming next. Usually, I don't like tracks that have no clear path, but in this rare case it works in the favor of the piece. 4/5 4. Mubali - Fu, Interrupted 07:26 "Who the hell is interrupting my Kung Fu?" - the phrase that literally interrupts the track in the middle after a strong start. Then, it sort of rejects everything that it had built and throws everything out the window opting for a different path. The mood changes in the second half, it gets more disturbing, but no less interesting. Mubali is a well-known name in the darkpsy scene, so I'm not suprised to hear another great piece from him. 4/5 5. Smuds - Turn A Sphere Inside Out 07:33 Ooh, love the beats on this one, chunky and metallic. No really, the rhythm drives this whole track, and it's really amazing. The bassline changes throughout as well, and the rest of the track is set up in such a way that it complements the kick and the bass. This is a fascinating piece of psychedelic music. 5/5 6. Ohmpapa - Mutchi Swutchi 08:48 There are glimpses of fun in this track, but not by much. 2/5 7. Shivattva - Samurai Lifestyle 07:45 This track is teasing me with good moments, but never reveals itself entirely for me to enjoy it properly. 2/5 8. NoizeBug - Underground Religion Underground Religion starts with a hindu chant, which reminded me of EU's The Prayer. I'm not sure if it's the same one, but it really sets a certain mood for a track. It gets really freaky by the middle point, and I'm not sure I like everything that I hear. It's a 50/50 for me, so I'll go with the rounded up score on this one. 3/5 9. Scope vs PsyVader - Bluemoon 07:54 The last piece is quite unusual in a good way. the second half sounds especially cool and original with its prominent sound effects and melodic snippets. Overall, a great finisher to a solid compilation. 4/5 --- Alien Seeds 2 is by far the best darkpsy compilation that I've heard recently. It's got tracks with different levels of intensity, and there are some real gems here. Not all the tracks worked for me, but most did and that's more than enough for me. The best piece on the compilation is Smuds "Turn A Sphere Inside Out." I like tracks that work both in your bedroom and on the dancefloor, and that's what Smuds achieves here with excellence. 3.5/5

    Ultimate Xperience (U.X.) is not a prolific producer. Their original CD was released in 1997 on Dragonfly Records. That CD, "Ultimate Experience", was something above and beyond the bog standards of the time. The Pleiadians also released I.F.O. during that same time. It was an exciting time to be alive, turned on, and plugged into the global psychedelic music scene. U.X.'s "Ultimate Experience" was, and is, such an incredibly powerful album. It has earned its place in a very special category of Goa... sci-fi, gothic, industrial, dark, cyberpunk, hard... that few other artists share. Juno Reactor & Mandra Gora are in this place... It is now March of 2019, and we have now been blessed with Kris Kylven's "magnum opus". The Realm Of A New Dawn is not just another release. This is something to be experienced many times over, with different levels of consciousness. The release is in two parts, Lazarus Rizing & Ad Vitam Aeternam. Disc One : Lazarus Rizing 1. Andromeda. 145 BPM : Opening track of the Lazarus Rising disc. Beautiful, sweeping pads open up a lush soundscape. A voice enters, then the beat. This is UX sound, but much more refined. The mastering is done very well, all of the synths sounds clear, crisp, and beautiful. As the track progresses with more layers and complexity, Kris slides in some of his magic at the 9 minute mark opening the soundspace up even more. Very cool effect. Excellent opening track. 2. Kingdom Of Heaven (Invictus Mix) 145 BPM : Voices open up this one. And then a very aggressive, driving trance explodes. This is sci-fi/gothic Goa done right. There is a mysterious and hauntingly beautiful quality to the way everything is put together, and then we are pulled into space.... with this orchestral sounding section. The build up to the coda is great, everything is on point, another solid track. 3. Across Thee Universe (Space Time Continuum) 145 BPM : The deadly secrets of a place we call, the Universe. There are a lot of haunting voices in this one, a close listen is required to pick up on what is being said. The trance itself is great, the melting synth lines... this is dark music, but absolutely beautiful. Very refined UX. Great track. 4. Lazarus (Sanctum) (Mix XIII) 145 BPM : This track is epic. NOW RISE! 5. High Energy Protons (Deus Ex-Machina Mix) 142 BPM : This is definitely the best remix of High Energy Protons I've ever heard. While it definitely is High Energy Protons, it's brought to a higher level. Nearly 12 minutes long, and none of it dull. Absolutely solid music. 6. Radio-Activity (eXtinction 13) 120 BPM : This is the first downtempo track of the album. It fits very well within this Gothic space opera. Like so many tracks on the album, this one is stellar. 7. Genesis 120 BPM : Back to trance,but with a more gentle tempo. This track has a very optimistic feel, the pads and other synth sounds are sweeping and lush. The lady's voice is most excellent and her message is interesting. The strange rhythms of the trance are so good... Disc Two : Ad Vitam Aeternam 1. Jezebel (From Here To Eternity) 145 BPM : Personal favorite track. This is just... magic for my ears and mind. Very powerful. Dare I say, perfect track? The breakdown, and rise before the coda is pure sorcery. 2. The Night Ceatures (Mix XIII) 147 BPM : Another monster track. Very cinematic. Beautiful voices, electric synth lines driving a pounding trance right through you. 3. Prophecy (Thou Shall Not Fear) 145 BPM : Haunting opening pads, and choir, along with a VERY UXian synth line. It has a wicked sound. There is something Kris Kylven does with synths that I adore... a clear example is from his track "Morphogenesis" (as Syb Unity Nettwerk Experience). A wicked vibration. 4. Temple Of Love 147 BPM : A classic Gothic dance track from the late 80's re-imagined. Kris Kylven's voice has an ethereal quality over the pounding trance, and sounds so close to the original I assumed it was Mr. Eldritch himself singing. Outstanding remix. 5. Blaze Of Glory 157 BPM : Following Temple of Love, this track is just perfect. industrial, Gothic Goa. The guitar is done very tastefully. This is not "Butt Rock" Goa, this is refined. 6. Lux Aeterna 140 BPM : The beat on this one is delicious. All of the voices, the strings... another outstanding track with Middle Eastern sounds throughout. 7. The Ark Of The Convenant 134 BPM : Middle Eastern sounds throughout. Excellent down tempo track that feels like a coda to this most excellent album... but it isn't as that honor goes to Children Of The New Dawn (Farewell). 8. Children Of The New Dawn (Farewell) 64/128 BPM : The album comes to a conclusion with this down tempo piece. Again, we have optimism here, as our journey through the darkness ends in peace. Perfect ending to an incredible album. There is nothing weak here. Every track has something to say, and says it well. Jezebel is my personal choice for "best track", but this is a very close competition. I will listen to this over the weekend with very enhanced ears and provide a more detailed analysis, but as it stands, this is a must buy. It is the perfection of UX, it is a cybernetic, cinematic journey through sci-fi hyperspace. If you're a fan of UX, Juno Reactor, Mandra Gora, Johann Bley, Transwave, Syb Unity Nettwerk, X-Dream... or just really amazing psychedelic soundscapes in general... buy this album. It is the album of the year. After multiple listens, this is my favorite album of all time. The mastering is so good, all of the sounds are in their respective places, everything compliments everything. Damn sexy! Ultimate Xperience did not disappoint in the least. 11/10 Kris Kylven is a genius Buy it here

    Yes it seems something went wrong with the youtube link... There's a lot of material I could rip, there's some Finnish guys out here that haven't digitized their DATs yet. The problem is I haven't got a DAT player and, although I'm interested in preserving the old goa stuff, my interest isn't big enough to validate a purchase of one. But surely, I'll let you know if at some point I'd have this particular track in my hands.

    Artist: Total Eclipse Title: Tokyo Live 1998 Label: Suntrip Records Date: April 1st, 2019 Track list: 1. Electro Gismo (Live) 2. Defrost (Live) 3. Kikamboot (Live) 4. Partycles (Live) 5. Sunrise (Live) 6. Collapsar (Live) 7. Miyukette (Live) 8. Chaotic Circus (Live) 9. Free Lemonade (Live) 10. Space Clinic (Live) 11. Are You Abducted (Live) 12. Psychedelic Terrorist (Live) Total Eclipse is one of the most influential Goa groups from the golden age. Tokyo Live 1998 is a re-mastered album filled with unreleased tracks and different versions from a set that was played in Tokyo in 1998. Being a fan of the group and someone who also has their classics, Violent Relaxation and Delta Aquarids, I was pleasantly surprised (to put it mildly) when I discovered the existence of this album-- nostalgic yet timeless. This would have been a classic from the golden age had it released in 1998. 1. Electro Gismo (Live) -- I never heard any version of this track before. The song's equipped with a catchy, organic-esque effect, like marbles or Chinese balls being shaken around the beat, but more integrated (like a melody). It's very nice and organic sounding. There's an intense climax early on. The synth is a bit harsh a la Crop Circles, but adds rough excitement to the danceable whole. Act 2 is great, returning to the groovy, more exploratory opening feel with greater depth and complexity. I like that the last act grew darker, more brooding and dramatic while remaining bouncy and fun. A- 2. Defrost (Live) -- This track develops tension and buildup before exploding into multiple, elaborate climaxes. The sound/melody work is fluid and infectious, resulting in a stomping sound frenzy with no shortage of growth and development. Moreover, there is a dark undercurrent synth (like Juno Reactor but refreshingly different) at its core. The song is wild, dynamic and fun, and bound to get blood pumping. It grows increasingly tasty and sinister, and the narrative/arc is excellent. Super track. A 3. Kikamboot (Live) -- Begins a little indecisive, but its direction becomes clearer, more psychedelic, and congruent in the second minute. A catchy, twangy synth compliments the music at 2:00, and the synth work grows increasingly catchy from 3:27 forward. The song's less climactic approach is a nice change after the previous sandstorm, allowing for more experimental sound/melody work. After hearing the previous two tracks, I was expecting a more memorable, distinguishable last act. What we get is good, though (to me) it's little more than a solid extension/reiteration of the middle act with some alterations. I don't know. You tell me. The song has a very nice and distinct Goa sound thoughout. A- 4. Partycles (Live) -- Starts with the classic wind up the [insert inanimate object] bedtime melody (you'll know when you hear it) that got my attention. The first two minutes were a little slow, but led to a delectable accent at 2:30 that worked wonders until more substance arrived at 3:12. Here I jelled to the music. The song gradually transforms into a dark, edgy, and rhythmically contagious gem thanks to a strong second and third act. Somehow the song manages to infect in its last minute, whereas most songs are in cool-down. I simply wish the first act was a little more congruent, but I'm nitpicking since ideal Goa songs generally get better as they progress. Though I like the previous track, I'm more hooked by the feel and tone in this one. The song develops into a more comprehensive vision in the second half and rewards the listener. A- 5. Sunrise (Live) -- Is atmospheric and unpredictable. The track makes great use of its main melody and is complimented with a trance-inducing (quickly dribbling/repeating) synth. It's so catchy! I love the key changes that support the story (narrative), and the feels! The artists follow their vision to fruition, and at one point accelerate us through some darkly unexpected terrain thanks to an upgrade (of sorts) at 4:45. The interlude that follows allows for a reiteration in development and an adrenalized climax, and I won't reveal the unexpected ending. Sunrise (Live) is a tight story-driven gem that knows when to captivate us with sleek as b@lls (!) sequences, and when to chill out and just be. A 6. Collapsar (Live) -- Follows off the ending of the previous track. We're floating in a neon sky that grows darker almost seemingly on point. Here the alien-influenced night-life emerges. Little firefly soundscapes echo around a growing sense of TENSION. We get some elegant piano-esque notes halfway through, though the song's general sound is moody, mature, dark, and engaging. The middle act develops into an attractive, musical sub-vision from the main arc, totally unexpected. Yet underneath it all is that darkly rich and engrossing (core) bass line and synth. The last act is good too, full of insectoid pops and clicks that sparkle the atmosphere with greater detail and luminescence. The song is further proof that the artists are great at combining light and dark (duality). A 7. The Antidote - Miyukette (Live) -- Gives us 20 seconds until the latch breaks and the music flies out the gate like a dragon full of fury. The melodies really pop in this track. The artists combine soft/euphoric sounds with grittier textures and some juicier, more colourful tunes with expanded development in arrangement (!). The result is an infectious, musical Goa song that's great for both home listening and dance floors/festivals. The middle act is excellent, increasing the storytelling drive with a greater sense of purpose. The artists take risks thanks to a desire and passion to experiment and always push further. I'm not a fan of the briefly repeating effect at 2:50, but it's through experimenting that we're exposed to so much ingenuity on both the song and overall album, and the last act is homogeneously solid. A- 8. Chaotic Circus (Live) -- Begins as if it's part-way into an uplifting, uptempo song believe it or not. Somehow the artists manage to make it work (I don't even want to know how). We're treated to a sonic fusion of melodies, like a famous Goa anthem. The arrangement is reworked at 2:00, maintaining its energetic feel before returning to the main melody and arrangement that inspired the opening act. Chaotic Circus is simpler than the other tracks, but very good/great nonetheless. I see this as a fun transitional piece-- though it's a main song obviously, between the more elaborate, ambitious ones. B+ 9. Free Lemonade (Live) -- "In the future, be more careful from whom you accept free lemonade." -- Ahhh... the classic track from back in the day (Delta Aquarids album). Think Close Encounters of the Third Kind if that film had a Goa theme. The song is accented with the sample before escalating into a cyclonic twister (around its signature theme sound) in the second minute. Free Lemonade is a darkly melodic track. Nonetheless, it doesn't feel as superior after hearing the slew of great songs on this album. The song builds towards two very cyclonic waves, reflecting its characteristic title that merely reflects the sample, otherwise the song could have been called something else. Great track! A- 10. Space Clinic (Live) -- Begins with one of the harshest, edgiest synths. My girlfriend feels that the first 1:45 is too rough. I think it's great. The track maintains its focus until 2:30 when the sounds drop out. This part lingers a bit, enhanced by a beeping (like one of those old telephone centers) effects that regains interest until a terrific climax at 3:35. The climactic segment develops well and although it's the last stand-out event on the track, the song feels complete (and completely solid) through its final moments. A- 11. Are You Abducted (Live) -- "What the hell are you doing man!!!" is the sample that sets the tone early on. This track feels unrestrained (in a good way). Some of the sound/melody work, e.g., 2:46-- is superb. When I hear songs like this, I shake my head at how this album never got a proper release until now. The ride reaches a second climax before diving into an infectiously acidic pool. A perk that's grown on me is the fading out of the track before the emergence of the beat. This helps to front new-- crunchier, darker, catchier, more psychedelic development, accented with an electric guitar. Super song! A 12. Psychedelic Terrorist (Live) -- Well this is different. We get some surreal sounds coupled with fast breaks early on. The first few minutes are catchy, e.g., a bouncy synth in the first act. Having heard so much by this group, I was expecting the song to grow increasingly infectious. Maybe it's just me, but the second act (part) to this track via 2:27 does little to hook me. It sounds a little too noisy and muddled for my taste, and I'm not a big fan of the arrangement. I do like the interlude at 3:07 to 3:42, and the zippy feel of the song. It's energetic and danceable. I like the returning energy/climax at 3:43 too. But I'm on the fence with the returning synth combinations in the last act, but that's me! Obviously the song was made for fun, to be thought-free (kick back and move). In that sense, I can see this being a fun party/dance track with the right crowd. I just prefer the group's more elaborate, ambitious work that's also fun and so broadly showcased above. B+ Conclusion 12 tracks and a handful of A songs is just part of the reason to get this album. Suntrip took one of the best unreleased Goa albums from the golden age and gave it a beautiful re-mastering and re-issue. Total Eclipse was never one (or three via trio of artists) to skimp on being elaborate, ambitious, imaginative, and visionary, and this is no exception. The music is punchy, tight, elaborate, and dark. It takes risks, had an expansive, flexible sound, and is fun! Thanks to the stellar mastering, we can hear every sound and detail. Everything is so crisp! It helps that the track list is healthy, full of top tracks. This is such a respectfully well done and appreciative release, kind of a gift/blessing for fans of Goa music. I own Violent Relaxation and Delta Aquarids, both great albums, classics in the genre. Tokyo Live (1998) is a stellar release that showcases some of the best songs in the genre that were never released until now. I just don't get it. This album is a huge surprise. Some of the tracks are INSANE!!! The sound/melody (synth) work is so catchy!!! Songs have character. They're dynamic, unpredictable, and visionary. Furthermore they have strong narratives. When was the last time you even read that about a Goa album? Pleiadians, RA, Cosmosis, D5, Filteria, and Khetzal (among most of our favourite Goa artist/groups) have strong narratives. They understand storytelling and how to structure a song to keep us engaged in the plot (narrative) throughout. This often involves a string of events along the way, but sometimes Total Eclipse packs so much plot into their songs that it's quite frankly amazing when they go all out. Granted there was a moment or two (here and there) that I found less stellar, but the overall track-visions, sound/melody work, and direction is terrific! While some songs have stronger narrative arcs than others, having good storytelling (direction) is huge. I love the sound/melody work on this album! The group also develops their arrangements, one of my biggest gripes with the otherwise great Morphic Resonance album, Perplexity (at times). Give me something with more developed arrangements. This album does that, and it was made in 1998! Moreover, it takes risks! The songs not only develop, they evolve. I've heard so much Goa that doesn't develop or evolve the music to THIS Degree, where THIS much change takes place at times. All in all, I'm not one to put every Suntrip album on a pedestal. I never cared for Denshi Danshi or the Prānā remix album, seemed lazy and uninteresting to me, not even worth buying. But this album, despite not every track being an A (from me) is fantastic! If you're a Goa purist, this is a must own release. Tokyo Live (1998) is more than a live set from 1998. It's a re-mastering of unreleased tracks and different versions, and some of the best songs Total Eclipse has ever made. It's been a while since I enjoyed a newly released Goa album this much. Prayers that this attracts everyone who loves Goa music. Although nothing is perfect, not even Pleiadian's IF.O. in my opinion, this is a super album!!! 9/10 HIGHLIGHTS: Electro Gismo (!), Defrost (!!!), Partycles (!!), Sunrise (!!!), Collapsar (!!!), The Antidote - Miyukette (!!), Free Lemonade (!!), Space Clinic (!!), Are You Abducted (!!!)

    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.

    Entry #33 I still remember the first time I heard Globular's Colours of the Brainbow. What it sounded back then like a combination of Ott, Shpongle and Entheogenic and I was wondering why no one else had tried that before. And he just kept delivering, release after release, with no drop on quality (rather the contrary) and always for free. Having his first releases printed in cd is like a dream. Add an amazing cover artwork from Luc that tells a story and it's not "just" amazing graphics and you have a gem.

    Some info, artwork and samples will be posted very soon, so hopefully it will end the speculation is it a free-form jazz or black metal

    We want to celebrate the beginning of the Spring with some great news: K.U.R.O. the master of Japanese melodies has agreed to release an incredible album on DAT Records, rare and unreleased tracks from the 90s that will surely delight everyone. It is going to be a triple journey through the musical landscapes and textures which will include music created with the project Charm courtesy of Takeichirou Kurosaki together with Tatsuo Endo. Expect a wonderful release in about a few months! Other things are coming soon, but it was about time we properly announced DATCD014 first. The album has been in the work for some time and we are very happy of the final outcome. Tracklist coming soon ;) ありがとうございました

    On March 3 (yikes, that's tomorrow!) I'll release I released two mostly unheard tracks of mine produced in 2018 as a short EP on my Bandcamp: Get on Bandcamp Both tracks were in a near-done state for the Spectral Flux album, but I felt that they didn't fit the rest really well. The first track, Horus, I would describe as heavily Ra-influenced, even though I only really noticed that while composing the melodies. But indeed, that lead to the name and also cover art . So if you like to think in categories, it would probably fall in the Suntrip-esque "newschool" category, which may be a bit untypical for my sound . Charm may remind you of Wormhole from my album, the vibe is also a bit mysterious but overall happier I'd say. More oldschool-ish sound than Horus, but fitting the overall atmosphere. With this EP, I'd like to close a the second "chapter" of Veasna if you will. I see how the way I compose, arrange and produce music is changing, similar to how it did between the Energy and Spectral Flux releases. So whatever comes in the future may sound somewhat to a lot different, I don't dare to make predictions! Samples: By the way: Those who supported my campaign for the 5ynergy EP and replied to my message will receive a free download code for the EP. Again, many many thanks! It certainly failed because of my lack of advertisement, but the release fell in the major working phase for my master's thesis and I wasn't prepared for a CD release - it was a very spontaneous endeavour after @thanosp81 approached me with the idea. I simply couldn't put the amount of energy in it that I would have liked . Anyway, Kickstarter is extremely sensitive about backer information - which is good. However, that makes it impossible for me to just give an individual key to every backer. I received a few e-mails, but for those who didn't do it, please send me a mail or PM here on the forum!

    Ka-Sol first released his tracks in 1998 and imo together with BOTFB are the pioneers of Forest. To my understanding and experience (as I first started to listen to psy in 1998 so I was there when all this subgenres started to appear) is that what we used to call Forest was the sound of BOTFB, Ka-Sol or even Logic Bomb and Hux Flux. It was basically a Goa trance/old school Psytrance derivative. It was mostly after Derango that Forest became more fx driven than full melodic (in spite the fact that Derango tracks still have melodies). Meanwhile Darkpsy was born in 2001-2002 mostly from Acidance records and Parvati first two releases. AFAIK nobody was mentioning Forest when we talked about that. This is why I believe that around 2004-2005 Forest and Darkpsy met and for some became interchangeable, but when it comes to origins they are from different branches. I meant Tales From The Dark Forest from Stoneage records that featured Derango and released in 2003. Then in 2004 they solidified their unique sound together with Dronebixie and others. But again this is to my personal understanding of how things went. After all things like that didn't pop out out of nothing.

    3 is just impossible... I'll give you 5 in no particular order (except Deviant Electronics, Mr.Walsh takes the cake for me) Deviant Electronics 1. Catharsis 2. Viral Spiral 3. Phenomenon Anon Marcello Bonifacii (so, Ominus/Encens/Aeternum) 1. Ensanity [Aeternum] 2. Spiritual Transgression [Encens] 3. Mindbender [Ominus] Green Nuns of the Revolution 1. Two Vindaloos & An Onion Bhagee (most insane climax ever) 2. Magellanic Cloud (just about as mad as Two Vindaloos) 3. Thunder Thighs/Fire (those two essentially tie for me - Fire is also a mad escalation and Thunder Thighs is the most fun and funky goa track I've heard) Extra I - Psychaos 1. Dense Dawn - no need to say anything... 2. Spatial Distortion - very phat and eeeeevil 3. Science Fiction/S.E.T.I. both are timeless classics, can't just pick one Extra II - Nervasystem 1. Initiation 2. Rotating Rama - that bassline is just....no words 3. Cybermat/Dimension Expansion Nervasystem is just generally great with the long, building tracks

    I'll probably pick Target Eye instead of NBK but that's a matter of taste. Shockwave is amazing.

    Proxeeus, aka Jerome Lesterps from France, has been elucidating the goa scene for a while now. His free debut album At The Mountains of Madness was a raw interlude of his potential. The second statement Weird Tales surprised many of us with a fantastic progression in song structure and production it its entirety compared to the debut. He was getting better and better. After that Proxeeus appeared on a number of compilations with stellar tracks such as Cthulhu Lives (Lotus) and Me, myself, and a Gnop-keh (Elan Vital). These tracks unveiled the new sound of Proxeeus where he far supersedes what he has done in the past (and that was already very good). We got more melodies, more travelling and more energy. On december 21st 2018 his 3rd album was released, Non-Euclidean Geometry on Goa Madness Records. Many goa fans were looking forward to this end-of-year climax. And .... Proxeeus delivers with a bang! Title: Non-Euclidian Geometry Arist: Proxeeus Label: Goa Madness Records (Belgium) Released: December 21 2018 Format: CD and Digital Tracklist: 1. Liber Ivonis 10:15 2. Ephraim Waite 10:25 3. What the Red Glare Meant 08:42 4. The Hounds of Tindalos 10:02 5. Down the Six Thousand Steps 08:27 6. The Unnamable 09:55 7. Old Keziah 11:13 8. Yog-Sothoth is the Gate 09:23 9. And Madness Followed (BONUS TRACK) Proxeeus' tracknames are influenced by the fantasy stories of author H.P. Lovecraft. He wrote about other worlds and aliens so much bigger and smarter than humans, we couldn't even begin to understand it. No soft mellow intro here, Liber Ivonis immediately gets the goa vibe going with so much melodies and kicking bass. It's a train that never stops. If you are looking for acid, just leave the album playing, because the second bliss Ephraim Waite is all that and more! Acid, more acid, and even more acid!! Intertwined with lovely warm synth melodies this track is a blaster. And the clarity of the sounds, wow, I can almost touch them. What the red glare meant thrives on a sort of hollow sound and starts a tad darker. But the majestic synths are back to take over. As a treat Proxeeus creates a metallic acid sound, Emmanuel Top like, like techno on speed. Very night-ish psychedelic stuff right here. The finale is super trippy. Proxeeus means business, and continues this bulldozer of an album with The hounds of Tindalos, a synth loaded and darker sounding track with acid blips in the back making you crazy. Hell, there is even an epic melody finishing with synths/acid mixed together to give an unforgettable dancefloor experience. Down the Six Thousand steps begins lighthearted but transforms rather quick in a dark monster where Proxeeus decides to take the aggressiveness up a notch. Next up is the liquid track The Unnamable. Liquid because of the sounds and the organic feel of it. Each minute we hear a new journey, but they flow flawlessly into each other. From warm to harsh and back to warm. Old Keziah is total immersion in Proxeeus land. Pulsating synths and acid fly around. How he creates the screaming climax is pure genius. The last track of the physical cd is Yog-Sothoth is The gate. Futuristic goa trance with sweet and banging melodic synth lines. The progression throughout the track is great again. Nothing feels monotonous, not predictable at all. That's the catch. And the fact that you know you're getting a great ending is so rewarding and pleasant. A joyful bonus track And Madness Followed is granted in the digital version on bandcamp. A 10 minute long odyssey to get all those goa brains melting on the dancefloor is the cherry on the cake. What a demolition track. We made it! Sooooo: The album is extremely coherent sound- and structure wise. You can listen to one track and be blown away, but the whole album is such an experience that you have to listen to it in its entirety. And appreciate it in its full length. The production quality is superb and not one single sound is out of place. Every track takes you on a journey to a parallel universe. Proxeeus is at the forefront of goa trance and this album is his magnum opus. Well, maybe until the next one. Who knows what comes next?? Jerome has much more to show us, I'm sure. Art like this only comes along once in a while. E-Mantra's Arcana, Artifact303's Back To Space, and now Proxeeus' Non-Euclidian Geometry. You nailed it, mister. Hats off.

    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.
