  1. Hello everyone, It is time to celebrate the 13th release of Digital Reprints. And the first that didn't rely on a Kickstarter. A double album from Stereo Dwarf printed in only 100 copies. Beautiful, Berlin-school inspired ambient, full of cosmic soundscapes and blissful beats. You know that Digital Reprint's releases are not to be missed as all of them are sold out. digitalreprints.bandcamp.com/album/echoes-of-existence I also added 10 copies of 10" Dub plates of the Ancient Sculptures E.P. This will be the only way to get this release on a physical format as well. Only 1 copies remaining though. There are a lot of artists out there, that they are not as prolific to warrant a 4xCD release. But that doesn't mean that there music shouldn't be printed in a physical format, far from it. So, If this project is successful, I plan to repeat the same thing, small print runs for single and double CD releases. I want to thank you so much for all the support you have shown the last (almost) 5 years. U R The Music!!! Thanos P.

  2. If you want a recommendation that might be more to your taste, try this: (This Morn Omina are a terribly underrated band, by the way...) However, if you are interested in a bit more info on my position about "what is scary in music": I have thought about this reply the most. I can not really look into your mind, but I understand you are looking for something "scary" and "strange"? The "strange" concept can be found in our psytrance music a great deal, it will just be a matter of what type of strangeness you are after and then which bpm or general setting, basically ... but the "scary" part is where it gets tricky in my opinion. It may have to do with the fundamental question: "what is scary to you?" "Scary Music" - is there even such a thing? And I mean this question in the deepest sense. I have been running through pitch blackness (i.e. a dark city park around midnight) with only the above mentioned "Tigerhill" on my ears, then I (metaphorically) turned round and did the same backwards with Noma, Prex, old S-Range, everything kinda "dark progressive" that was available ... I cannot describe the feeling as scared, rather "on high alert" because I didn't wanna run into any drugged strangers. This also didn't change as I tried to "up the ante" and bpm with Gappeq or Kindzadza. I have listened to a great deal of sick black metal ... nah, I also cannot find scaryness there, only a general question of "what do you actually wanna do with all this - with the dark symbols and texts" in my mind. Slaughtering goats on stage? I have not attended, but it wouldn't be scary ... it would just be "intriguing", just the same way like human feces thrown into the audience (I cannot recommend this, by the way). "Dark ambient?" Sure, why not - it only is difficult to find gigs, but that's what mp3 players are for, right? However, the general tenor with this music is, that it might have an impression that "this is scary" but when I actually listen when the tracks or pieces play, then it's actually not scary at all - just calm, cold, a bit depressing, that's it. I do not know about you, but "scare" emotion was not triggered on my side. The closest to a "scare" - or rather: a huge impression and impact - was Anthony Rother and I have to give him credit for that: it was his track "Escape From Sector 8" played in the Mayday 2021 Stream. This piece broke the third wall for me, because he was playing in an empty hall with only machines "dancing" to his music: the motors of the spotlights moving and the screens on the floor flashing ... and then I had this realization as he spoke directly at the camera: "I am not real. I am not here. I am a virtual machine, running on (an) operating system: A.I. Technology. Predicting someone's future [...]" ... even then, the music alone wouldn't make me scared, I guess, but the DELIVERY of the message was what got me so good. So I think that when you are after "scary things", your quest will continue - because first: scare is something personal ... and second: it's (in my opinion) very difficult to find scare in music. that was my 2 cents on this issue P.S.(post scriptum): Yes I was gonna recommend Eat Static, as a second or "third course" on the menu ... they are one of my favourites ... but I have tried to analyze the request and especially the answer to my post more and I think the threadstarter might not be looking for it... Yes, also I thought of Tigerhill. Might be a good one. However, still the above applies...

  3. I will write my professional opinion as well: This new album sounds very clean, transparent and warm. Has lots dynamics, the mixes breath and does not get you tired like some squashed to hell modern tracks. It is interesting musically, lots of story telling inside. So, very well done album from Filteria, hard work appreciated!

  5. Liquid Neon Sky and all of Earth Crossing is just unreal. You don't always notice it at first but eventually the album opens up to you and "woah"! I went through a phase where nothing else sounded good to me but that Chi A.D album. I don't have recommendations for anything like. I've never heard any tracks like anything from Earth Crossing. Lot's of wild sound moments from that album. I love the Industrial house sounding wobbly sheet metal sound coming in at 3:20 on the track X-Isle. Once again, nothing like it as far as i;ve found. Based on your other comments though check out the song 'Fluff Factory' from the album FF - Alienated - Most songs on the album are hot tbh. And for something dark. Ya boi Proxeeus has you sorted. For a unique moment unlike almost anything i've heard listen to "Me, Myself, & A Gnop-Keh" from the Elan Vital Compilation. The break at 5:55. Just wait for it. I don't care if you don't like the start, you wait for it ya hear me. . . Btw the first half of the song I think is great too. Let me know what you think. I'll try come up with some others closer to Liquid Neon Sky

  6. thanks for the feedback. I love different genres of trance. ranging from good old full on like 1200 microgram album - 1200 mic's, and also planet ben and didrapest - psychedelic injection. plus many more artists and tracks. I also like melodic goa. modern. such a meaty sound. a bit cosmic. these are e-mantra, nova fractal, median project, Artifact303 and some remixes from astral projection. I also like toi doi, pcilocybian, trold, braincell. I also like to listen to psytrance harder. forest or dark type. recently discovered the direction of hitech. This forum is the only one where they can answer my questions. unfortunately the culture is not as lively as in the 2000s. Your track doesn't work for me either. and now I'm just looking for a good darktrance. it is also interesting to listen to the hardest, scariest and craziest darkTrance. about progressive. I like. but not all. it is sometimes too slow. but I want faster rhythms. and the sound itself is delicious. juicy progressive. Can you recommend a couple of tracks or artists. i like once ovnimoon

  7. Artist: Filteria Title: Live With The Lag Label: Suntrip Records Release: 29th April 2022 Things change, the world changes, we change but one thing we can be sure of is Filteria's powerful, crazy and beautiful symphonies. If someone had of asked you about the expected changes of the world 5 years ago another solid Filteria Release might have actually been the only thing you got right. Is that because Goa trance is the truth? HUH? Is it? Yea, that is why. This album is easily my favourite of his albums. And to be perfectly honest the only one I've really found myself getting fully immersed within. Much softer undertones and more uplifting floating moments than seen in previous albums but on the same trajectory. From Sky input, to Heliopolis to Daze and Lost in the Wild, this has very much been the direction Filteria is heading. Is this the Apex? Who knows, there is more time and trance seems to live in this sweet man. The stock markets have crashed, the housing markets have crashed, the crypto markets have crashed - But Filteria keeps us soaring to the Moon and beyond! Anyway, this is surprisingly the most concise review i've done yet. Enjoy https://suntriprecords.bandcamp.com/album/live-with-the-lag
