  3. Nice the first minute sounds so clean and sharp. Only sound I am not fond of is at 1.27 (the voice like sound) but then these Infected Mushroom vibes with the melody. Great job.

  4. Didn't understand that either, but I assume it's meant as "thanks" for the constant drama. Might be wrong though. Sad to see Psyshop disappear even though I've rarely bought music in the last couple of years.

  5. Thank you a lot, I'm humbled ... and I admit: I'm very curious about what they will reply. It would be less unusual if there were frequent shipments - but there's only that one container I'm very happy though that my post did not act as trigger, I admit I was a little worried ... but as said: it shows what people are thinking and digging up if a business "just vanishes" without any info... I have, by the way, dug a lot in the german directory of "Insolvenzen" (I don't know the English word - it's when a business goes defunct) ... but I could not find anything Thanks for the link... ...but: WHY, of all, Kristian Thinning? That reference in there, It just caught my eye

  6. Yeah, I miss those days when my friends and I took the train to Malmö (south of Sweden) and went to Cosmic One, Basement and Relapse. The good old times. =)) Hunting for music, flyers and the coolest clothes.

  8. So what’s your favourite Goa Trance with some pronounced alien/sci-fi vibes? The classical ones that spring to mind are: Astral Projection - Searching For UFO’s ( Contains a sample which I don't know the source of: "We were flying along on a H20 bomber very much like this one, and we are coming south with [...] and we are just about the same altitude [...] about 5000 feet above the ground with something [...] in the back of the airplane reported before, then we had bright light coming down toward the aircraft behind us." The album Another World is strong with the themes of other worlds and space in general. The Nazca Lines are clearly popular in Scifi. Technossomy - V.T.O.L (Provided that they aren't referring to the Harrier Jump jet. Which I highly doubt). Slinky Wizard - Funkus Munkus (contains a sample referring to the original statement that The 509th Operations Group at Roswell Army Airfield issued in 1947. Before they retracted the original statement claiming that it was a "weather balloon". The sample goes: "'Which in effect stated that we have in our possesion a flying saucer.'" Miranda - Groom Lake (Contains a sample of an alleged employee at Area-51, describing the telephatic ability of an alien working at the facilities referred to as J-Rod. UX-Alien Earth Activity The Visitors-Tiny Little Engines Hallucinogen - Alpha Centauri (I interpret this one as having such a theme, but I could be wrong. Maybe Simon was just interested in astronomy in general). Gamma Goblins pt 2 is also a track I personally interpret as having to do with supernatural ”dwarves”. Which in historical accounts might correlate with visitors of short stature. Certainly it reminds me of the Kelly–Hopkinsville encounter that supposedly took place in 1955. Involving glowing goblin-like aliens. Or perhaps the track might refer to the frantic so called Machine Elves, so curiously described in the literature. And famously by Terrence McKenna. That are sometimes seen during the DMT-experience. Which in essence from the descriptions of appearance are some michivious hyperdimensional entities. Or there might not be any deeper meaning to the track name at all, more than sounding funny. The very intriguing description of the Machine Elves by Terrence McKenna: "At about minute one or two of a DMT trip, according to McKenna, one may burst through a chrysanthemum-like mandala, and find: There's a whole bunch of entities waiting on the other side, saying "How wonderful that you're here! You come so rarely! We're so delighted to see you!" They're like jewelled self-dribbling basketballs and there are many of them and they come pounding toward you and they will stop in front of you and vibrate, but then they do a very disconcerting thing, which is they jump into your body and then they jump back out again and the whole thing is going on in a high-speed mode where you're being presented with thousands of details per second and you can't get ahold on [them ...] and these things are saying "Don't give in to astonishment", which is exactly what you want to do. You want to go nuts with how crazy this is, and they say "Don't do that. Pay attention to what we're doing". What they're doing is making objects with their voices, singing structures into existence. They offer things to you, saying "Look at this! Look at this!" and as your attention goes towards these objects you realise that what you're being shown is impossible. It's not simply intricate, beautiful and hard to manufacture, it's impossible to make these things. The nearest analogy would be the Fabergé eggs, but these things are like the toys that are scattered around the nursery inside a U.F.O., celestial toys, and the toys themselves appear to be somehow alive and can sing other objects into existence, so what's happening is this proliferation of elf gifts, which are moving around singing, and they are saying "Do what we are doing" and they are very insistent, and they say "Do it! Do it! Do it!" and you feel like a bubble inside your body beginning to move up toward your mouth, and when it comes out it isn't sound, it's vision. You discover that you can pump "stuff" out of your mouth by singing, and they're urging you to do this. They say "That's it! That's it! Keep doing it!". We're now at minute 4.5 [of the trip] and you speak in a kind of glossolalia. There is a spontaneous outpouring of syntax unaccompanied by what is normally called "meaning". After a minute or so of this the whole thing begins to collapse in on itself and they begin to physically move away from you. Usually their final shot is that they wave goodbye and say "Deja vu! Deja vu! Terence McKenna and Dr. Rick Strassman have both asserted the sense of reality of the experience is distinct from ordinary hallucinatory experiences, leading both researchers to speculate that perhaps the physics of many worlds is involved. Jacques Vallee has proposed that the entities met may be of an interdimensional nature in his interdimensional hypothesis." There’s plenty more of course, since this is/was a popular recurring theme in this genre. And I would even say one of the defining ones. The paranormal, scifi, science, cosmology and new age sensibilities all contributed to shape this genre, at a core level. And perhaps the psychedelic experience ties them all together somehow. So what tracks/albums stand out in your opinion with regards to the extraterrestrial theme?

  10. Behind Closed Eyelids, what a track! And such amazing memories connected to first hearing it back in 1998. I was mindblown. Perfect music to be creative with, just put on some headphones. And the let the pen and paper come alive.

  11. didnt try it but tal-chorus is an option, its that juno sound. tal-dac is also great for emulating classic digital synths, although theres usually a bitcrusher plugin in every daw that kinda can do similar things..

  12. Yes I agree, still usually when I'm stuck I browse some stuff to get some inspiration. Particularly pads when the track is in its early stages to get some kind of sketch down. For leads I find that there isn't really anything which sounds like the Goa I like, so that's always from scratch. It's so easy with these plugins anyways to get something going quickly. Certainly Sylenth1, and Dune 3 I find really inspiring and fast to get from idea in the head to a done lead/pad etc. And certainly the TAL-101 and Audiorealism Bassline, are just made to get in there quickly as well. What I really use a lot of presets for are sample libraries in kontakt, acoustic sounds, choirs and so on. Much in the same way they did it in the 90's. When they used the Kurzweil K2000 for those type of sounds and for example Roland JD-800 for its lush pad presets.

  15. Hello everyone, I run the GOAPSYRECORDS label, we were on the psyshop platform, know that we were not warned of anything, all access to psyshop have been blocked without reason, we can no longer upload, and all the tracks we had put on the platform are potentially gone, we have no way to contact them, all links have been deleted. we are very disappointed in their behavior, psyshop owes us money on digital sales that we will never see I think. We have been producing trance music for 5 years now, we hope that this story will not have a big impact on the small and fragile labels. Thank you for continuing to support the independent labels, Have a nice day

  16. Yes, I agree. More labels/artist should do this. I know only two. Banco de Gaia and Children of the Bong. If there is more I want to know. https://childrenofthebong.dizzyjam.com/ https://disco-gecko.dizzyjam.com/ And yes, pics of the GNOTR t-shirt. =))

  17. Give this album a chance! Don’t go in expecting the same type of Goa Trance we’ve been expected to hear these days. I think Suntrip and Afgin did a brave thing here by trying something unexpected. And in the process show that there are many facets is to this genre. Which of course becomes evident just by browsing the Suntrip catalog. Which to date has managed to become a sprawling library of different Goa styles. This album showcases that not everything needs to be about maximal layer density, and that there is ample room for exploration of older styles and fusing of genres. In the end this approach provides a wider range of tonal expression.

  18. 03.30 into the track. 02.17 into the track 02.50 into the track Okey next research project, the lead sound in these tracks which start at denoted time stamps. It has the same euphoric feeling. Could it be the SH-101 with some phaser and slight distortion/overdrive? Chorus? Or is it something else like the Oberheim? Since both AP and Filteria have those synthesizers (Xpander and 101). Getting kinda close with the PWM+LFO modulation of the square wave on the 101 clone. For the crying/detuned aspect of the lead. It has been suggested to me that it could be the Nord Lead.

  19. So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have probably heard of RA, the goa trance project by Christer Borge-Lunde and at various times Lars Lind. 4 years since the release of 9th, RA is back to impart some light, wisdom, and laughter once again only this time it’s not goa trance, but rather a collection of ambient, downtempo, and chilled out goa grooves. Of course this isn’t particularly something new as RA has released a hand full of songs like this, one of my personal favorites being Light Receiver off of 9th. However, I can honestly say I have never heard anything like Unearthly before in my life. So where to begin? "Faith is to believe what we do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what we believe." Floating Shrine of Inanna - This track serves as an intro of sorts with wonderful vocals provided by Christer’s sister (I love saying that) Marthe who will make another appearance in the next track. Some nice little percussion work and strings set the mood for this album and it may come as a little surprise. Unearthly is very light, uplifting, and positive unlike some of RA’s darker heavier goa trance. I get the sense that the storm of the previous albums have passed and we are left with a heavenly blue sky with the shining sun warming your heart, even as winter approaches for us in the northern hemisphere. Rain No Water - Once again, Christer’s sister helps out on this jaw droppingly gorgeous ambient piece. Guitar sounds, filtered pads, and strings make this one a standout track for me. It dips in and out of melancholic, yet euphoric moments. Ascend - Is it December 21, 2012 yet? If this is what we get to listen to when we ascend, then bring on the end of the world because this song is full of bliss. This song is also one of a number on this album with a four to the floor beat, but there is absolutely nothing heavy about it. The rhythm is as light as a feather. Shift - “To jump across space and travel in time..." Arguably we are back in familiar territory here with eastern melodies and trippy soundscapes. This is more like the RA we know and love. The best part of the song comes around the 6 minute mark when the bass line starts shifting around and the originally developed melodies start changing ever so slightly. Lifethread (Serene mix) - So yea, this is a downtempo version of Lifethread from Shaltu released earlier this year. It’s amazing how when you break up the beat and slow the tempo down all the intricacies of the various melodies become this dense subtle explosion of little sounds. Highly creative stuff, nicely done. Lightspark - Can the vibe get any more positive? This song has a little more pace to it once again shifting back to a dance beat. For some reason I feel like it would be really easy to call something like Lightspark cheesy but as the whole theme of this album seems to be about faith and believing in the unbelievable, I find it difficult to not just give in to the positivity this song creates. Even a cynic like me has a soft spot that likes to be tickled once in a while. Unearthly - This one more of less continues the vibe of the previous song but mixes in some tension filled arpeggios underneath soft piano like melodies here and there. The chord progressions later on in the song are just so blissful. I’ve never heard an artist capture quite the mood this album does. I have a hard time describing it. At times it sounds like video game music but it holds such hope or maybe empathy. Celestial Slice - The final song on here is more downtempo with acoustic guitar thrown in and a simple yet effective clap/snare on every other beat. I could listen to this song all day long, what a way to finish off a brilliant album. Unearthly is one of the most genuinely exciting albums I’ve heard in a while and it lies in part due to Christer’s insistence on creating layers upon layers with loads of harmonies. It doesn’t always work perfectly, it’s a somewhat flawed very human album, but I think that was really the point of Unearthly. If To Sirius and 9th are the spirit channelings of the 6th density being known as RA, then Unearthly is RA himself. Love and light, thanks Christer. (and Christer’s sister too )

  20. I just noticed that Sub Terranean's Bandcamp (https://subterraneanrecords.bandcamp.com/) is completely gone, Google still finds it so it can't be too long. They had a LOT of oldschool releases, goa and other music genres. Does anybody know what might have happened?

  21. Well, the same as most old school labels do: they just put old school stuff online without any rights. They just try, catch a lot of money untill an artists really makes problems...
