    For the ones that would like to know a bit more about the album... and beyond here is a little interview!

    I just got a few email from psynews. I don't know whether you changed the system or whatever, but this reminded me that Cronomi Records is 10 years old this year, and I decided to share some of the early history of how it came to be. It's funny, because back then we had the "new school old school" debate, and the whole "old school" era was about as long as the time from 2008 until now. Only tells you how this division is absolutely meaningless. Anyway, the teenager me was producing generic psytrance, kind of the usual kind of Israeli full on you'd expect. Some of it even ended up being released for reasons that I'm not certain of now because it was shit. Then, a friend challenged me to produce a goa track. So I did. It was also a challenge to myself, what can I get done using only the "Vanguard" VST plugin. Turns out that it went pretty well, made some amazing goa loops. I continued to finish that track with things other than Vanguard. It was eventually released at Ektoplazm in the first Golden Vibes compilation. The name of the track, "Shomervan" is just a Hebrew way of saying "Vanguard", with "guard" being שומר = shomer. It also required that I find a new name for myself. I was into stars and stuff back then, so I looked up the names of stars in the constellation Leo (I was born August) and saw that the name for the star ο Leonis was Subra and I liked it so I picked it. A few more goa tracks later (Snel Hest which is also in an online compilation, but shit mastering so it's fucked and I don't have the originals any more, Olmec which was nice) I decided I wanted to start my own label. I have zero knowledge of doing so, I was a shit business man (and still am) but apparently it was rather easy to do. I had some money from working so I went for it. I needed a name for the label, and I always thought that all of those mystical sounding names or things influenced by eastern cultures or things based on drugs were stupid. You know, 22 old me objecting to cultural appropriation before it was cool. Then I had a revelation! My artist is Subra, and the star name is ο Leonis, aka Omicron Leonis. Omicron sounded cool, but naming it after a Greek letter seemed non-unique. Playing with the letters a bit led to Cronomi, something that I really thought represented me (at the time). There were several reasons for actually starting the label. Suntrip was doing well at the time, and it felt like there could be more than just one goa label out there. Suntrip was also focusing on just one flavour of goa trance (in my opinion at the time), so I thought I could diversify a bit. And, being a label head was really cool. Hell yea! I got my own label! woohoo. Little I knew how hard it is to actually do it... Stay tuned for the next chapter, the story of our (actually my, I was working alone at the time) first compilation: Freshly Cut Tomato. Once I find the time to actually write it. Shouldn't take long.

    Dear Suntrippers! We can announce our next CD-release on Suntrip Records! We will release a new big talent from Russia: Median Project! I would describe him as a mix between Mindsphere and Astral projection! Powerful, epic melodies and a lot of acid303s on top of it! Check the samples! Next week we will put the pre-order on bandcamp! : https://www.suntriprecords.com/release/cat/SUNCD56/

    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. Lunar Core 2. Neura 3. Secrets of the Atom 4. Moksha 5. Convergent Images 6. Metalucid 7. Innerscape 8. Lightswitch

    Artist: Material Music Title: Love & Magic (The Dust Album) Label: Kali Earth Records Date: May, 2018 1. Love & Magic 2. Thunderbrothers - Hausmania Jam 3. Ingenuity Box 4. Twitch Science 5. Jailhouse Suck 6. Space Out...and In 7. Return To Earth 8. Prabudda Jani Professor Rabinowitz? Umm...is my paper still due on Wednesday? Like a lot of genres our particular brand of music has long been over saturated with subpar and generic sounding efforts. It's a copy and paste world these days and every high schooler (or middle aged psychology professor) with a pirated copy of Cubase is poised to make the next LSD. More power to you, I wish you the best because it seems the world could use a little more LSD. However we're still waiting and it seems that (and perhaps it has always been this way) the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Promotion is the name of the game and nobody is going to toot your own horn like you can. Unintentional masturbatory pun. So through repeated messages I reluctantly agreed to give this album a listen and share my pearls of wisdom that nobody seems to agree with. It's not like the old days when I had nothing but time to write reviews on every file someone sent me. I'm a busy man. See? So, taking myself away from a whole day's worth of nothing I found out who the hell this is an boy was I surprised. Erland Yildiz is truly an inspirational story. The music biz is rife with tropes about the perils of substance abuse and history is riddled with those who have succumbed to them. He apparently has been making music for a long time, but fell victim to those forces and fairly recently got himself clean by going cold turkey. I don't know what he was on or what he was going through, but you don't get free of those demons without a lot of strength and support so kudos to him. Also to psytones for helping him shop his albums and getting his music out there. This album is a compilation of tracks he made over time, some while sober some while not. He clearly is proficient with the electronic wizardry with good layers, sound, and groove. Here are a few notes I made after several listens. The only quibble I have with some of the tracks is the excessive length without evolution. The title track is a churning progressive beast that clocks in at a hefty 15 minutes. Good thumping track with a bit of goa sauciness at the end. Felt it went on a little long though. And that will be a theme here. Hausmania Jam to me is filler that went on waaaay too long and seemed like a rough draft of a track that he would get back to later. Like...after nachos. Ingenuity Box is a psychedelic goa track that reminds me of something from COP. If that's your style then this is for you. Not bad at all. Twitch Science sounded very rudimentary, but in an alluring way. It also has that bubbling 303 beneath the surface so it's got that going for it. I liked it the more I listened to it. Jailhouse Suck has a funky house groove with some great tabla, but the mumbling underneath is a tad bit distracting. Space out is a psytrance progressive hybrid that flows with juicy layers. More variation would've been nice, but still good. Return to Earth is rather mellow and after listening to it 3 times I wasn't aware that I had listened to it. Maybe it flew by because it was the shortest track on the album. Prabudda Jani is pure Astral Projection multilayered in your face space goa. Best track for me on the album that sounded like it could be from Global Sect Music. So there you have it, a decent album that is available in digital or CD-R format and perhaps a welcome back to the scene of sorts for another artist. Kali Earth Records Bandcamp

    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

    Released for FREE here: https://bit.ly/2AFZ50d Kickstarter campaign for CD: https://kck.st/2zyUZr0 In late 2013, I started the Veasna project with one thing in mind: make people jump around on trancefloors! Knowing the genre for a decade already, only that year I started visiting my first parties and the feeling totally captured me in many ways. I started to try and channel that energy into music, which I have been making for a long time already but without any real "goal" behind it. The result was Veasna, and I met relatively quick success: only one year later, Neogoa Records released my probably most famous track "Quantum Conundrum". In 2016, I found myself having produced enough music to fit my first full-length album, Energy. Now as it is with releases, not all tracks I had by then made it to that album. As it so happens, this time of the year, Veasna turns five years old. So I feel it's time to get a few more of those tracks out into the world! On December 1, I will release 5ynergy - a 5th Anniversay EP that contains five tracks, four of them previously unreleased and one heavily improved. All of them have been originally produced in 2013 and 2014 - my first year on the project - so expect music roughly in the style of Energy. The release will be exclusive to my Bandcamp (which I'll put up very soon) and will be free on a "pay something to support me if you like" basis for a bunch of weeks for the entire month of December as a Christmas gift of sorts. Kickstarter campaign for a limited full-length CD @thanosp81 kindly pointed me in some possible directions to go, and the result is that also on December 1, I am starting a Kickstarter campaign to extend the EP to a limited full-length CD release. Additionally to the EP tracks, that would contain all my previously released digital-only tracks (Quantum Conundrum, Warp, Dendrites and Silent Spring) with improved production, plus a new downtempo track to close it off in Veasna fashion. The Kickstarter campaign would be the only way to ever get that CD, so it's meant for collectors and supporters. Though, whether it happens or not will depend on the outcome.

    Artist: Ufomatka Title: Off The Beaten Track Of The Universe Label: Cronomi Records Date: June 29, 2018 1. Transition To Hyperspace 2. The City Of Acid Trips 3. Sliders 4. Space Chronicles 5. USS Enterprise 6. Nebula 7. Drifting Across The Universe 8. Voyager-1 (Leaving The Solar System) This is the first album from Ufomatka aka Alexandr Yemelyanov from Ukraine. I am not familiar with his EP's or his tracks from compilations, so I had no idea what to expect with this album. The sound here can be described as cybernetic/dark psytrance, similar to artists like UX, Cydonia, Portamento, MFG Genesis era, etc. 1. Transition To Hyperspace: Starts off with a nice memorable bassline, slowly and methodically building upto 2:26, where the song starts taking off. I really like the second half of the song from 4:31 where the layers keep piling up till the outro. 2. The City Of Acid Trips: City? Song title feels out of place compared to the rest of the album. Anyway, we get a nice goa melody in the intro, then around 1:00 the song takes off, no slow building this time. I love the rapid, fast paced sounds here: the percussion, the synths, make it seem like the song is about to erupt. There are a lot of different psychedelic sound effects and subtle melodies on top of a steady rhythm. At 5:22, the song changes up and introduces a melody which could be considered the climax. This song is more aggressive than the previous one. 3. Sliders: I love the electric intro here, probably my favorite on the album. We get a simple, growly lead at 1:58, with other layers and melodies complementing it nicely. At 3:32, the simplistic growly lead takes a backseat, but I find it overstayed it's welcome. At 5:30, the song recovers itself when the climactic melody of the song appears, and then a few complementary melodies. 4. Space Chronicles: This song is similar to the previous one in that there is a simple, repetitive, techno-ish rhythm that overstays its welcome, but the layers and melodies keep it very interesting. I love the progression in this one, and it's subtleness, especially the cool background synth from 3:25-3:38. The climactic melody at 5:36 is fantastic as well. Overall, this song is packed with tons of ideas. 5. USS Enterprise: This one is a midtempo, journey-esque, laidback song, and it is perfection. There really isn't a climax in this song, but things are constantly changing, shifting, evolving with layers coming in and out gently. My favorite track on the album, and the longest song so far (but felt the shortest). 6. Nebula: Another midtempo song, similar to the previous one. Very atmospheric intro, but then it kinda becomes generic goa trance. Things get interesting and less generic at 4:35, and it fully redeems itself in the second half. I like the electric melody at 7:18, reminds me of UX. I felt like this song didn't need to be this long, he could have easily trimmed the first 4 mins. 7. Drifting Across The Universe: Intro really does make it seem like you're drifting. I love the creativity in this one, especially the synth from 2:25-3:18 and 6:16-6:45 which feel funky and free-styli. The dark, gravy boiling sounds at 4:50 reminds me of something from Growly Family GMS. Another great mid-tempo song. 8. Voyager-1 (Leaving The Solar System): A sample about Voyager, and an uplifting intro. Not a fan personally of the first 3 mins. But the song recovers quickly after that. The rest of the song has so much class, so much swagger, and you just don't hear this kind of style and fashion in Goa trance often. Does this guy play saxophone in his spare time? I thoroughly enjoyed this album from start to finish. The production is great, and I've always preferred this style of cybernetic goa trance over the traditional style. I also like how few samples are present in this album, they are quiet and non intrusive. The one complaint I have about this album is the lack of variation: similar to MFG's Project Genesis, the album really likes to repeat synths for extended periods of time, which is I guess what the artist wanted based on the promo "His musical flow follows the tradition of the avant garde and psychedelic trance/techno movement". Now I need to listen to his EP's. 4.5/5 https://cronomi.bandcamp.com/album/ufomatka-off-the-beaten-track-of-the-universe

    The poster should have indeed put this in the "Artist news section", not in the review section. But all that aside, this is a marvelous compilation! Just out of the blue I read the topic of tsotsi about Melusine releasing a goa comp, and here we are. Normally known for ambient and psybient comps, Melusine, under the wings of almighty E-Mantra, releases a full power goa compilation. And they hit it right in the sweet spot. 1. Travma - Son Nefes 07:48 2. Median Project - Shuttle 08:16 3. E-Mantra - Xibalba (Eleusyn remix) 07:53 4. Nostromosis - My Inspiration 08:18 5. InnerSelf - Circle Of Dreams 07:29 6. Via'on - I don't Like Goa 09:09 7. Astrancer - Koilon (Remix) 10:06 8. Lunar Transformers - Lunar Transformers 09:15 9. Adam Shiva - Ergot Pulsing 06:04 10. Proxeeus - Me, myself, and a Gnop-keh 09:46 11. The Maniac - Prayers Of The Night 08:56 Travma - Son Nefes I heard before on a Goalogique compilation, but somehow here, as opener, it comes to its right. Gradually adding sounds, and then the bassline and kick guide you till the end. Addictive! Median Project delivers as usual a space goa track for the books. The Eleusyn remix of E-Mantra's Xibalba takes on a more floaty approach, and I like it! Nostromosis has been busy for a few years, yet I haven't really caught him. A solid floater of a goa track he presents here including some tantric vocals. InnerSelf delivers the resting track of the compilation, for my feelings. Nothing extraordinary, not bad, but it didn't make me feel excited. Then we go into trippy mode, with Via'on. The funny breakbeat in the middle can't stop you from smiling and having a laugh. After that, we're back to goa for the 2nd half of the track. Interesting stuff! Astrancer seems to be back for good and this time with a more energy loaded goa piece than on Shambhala (Global Sect). Amazing stuff what he brings here. I'm totally immersed in acidic, bubbly, spiraling goa sounds. He hits it just right! Top track!! I have no idea who Lunar Transformers is, but this project nails it too. Non-stop goa. No shit. A dance machine. Adam Shiva is also an unknown project. I also don't find any credits on bandcamp. Scorching acid is what it's all about. Not a favorite of mine, but must be great on the dancefloor. Next up is my hero Proxeeus. Wonderful track by the master of the moment. And as tsotsi says, the last 3 minutes are what this track is all about. I mean, the whole track is genius, but it all leads to the final run, and that is fe-no-me-nal. Unearthly. He did it again. The last track by The Maniac is a fast speedy Gonzales. What a great idea to end the compilation with a bang! No time to breathe. Instead just knock yourself out with a belter and beater of an electric tack. This one has electric shocks written al over it. Aciiiiid! A wonderful goa compilation by Melusine records. One more 2018 release to buy and cherish. We're all awaiting more praise for this one. It's really goooood!

    To say these tracks all the sound same is a severe understatement. Is it literally the same track with slight alterations and different voice samples at the beginning? Maybe it's just the suomi sense of humour but this would drive me mad after 3-4 tracks and there's 46 of them..

    One of my biggest problems with the goa trance scene has been its susceptibility for buying into conspiracies and pseudoscience. I know vaccines are scary, but they've been vetted and are far more safe than getting the plague. New theories suggest the increased rates of autism are, not because of the rise of vaccines but, due to the processed foods, sugars, and grains. Not processed as in GMO tomatoes, but the refined sugars and flours. Our guts control so much of our mind and body that when we take in a bunch of rubbish, and pass that down to our young, it fucks with them. Change the diet, change the mind.

    Please don't hurt me: My favorite Etnica album is Chrome. For some reason I never really liked their goa trance too much - not that I don't like it, it's just that the connection is missing. Chrome was one of the first albums I had on CD back in the days so it has a special place for me. The result is this very unpopular opinion. Oh, and I don't think anything killed anything. In my book, modern psytrance and oldschool goa trance don't have too much in common and I treat them separately. I actually find it a blessing that oldschool goa is somewhat of a "closed chapter", because many styles end up becoming overly stale. Look at indie rock for probably the best example, and I think the same thing has already begun to happen with psytrance as well.

    Today we released our first Single Collection on Classic Goa Trax! It has vinyl only music and very rare compilation tracks on it by Four Carry Nuts! (Probably better known as a side project of Tim Schuldt, together with Gilgamesj). This release is clearly more dirty, powerful, industrial and rough as your usual goa-trance, but we know some people love this more hard style! The first 6 tracks are all from the 90s, after that the style becomes a bit more technoish/industrial around 2000! But with our label we want to be open for all kinds of psychedelic music released in the 90s and 2000! 1. Four Carry Nuts - Weird Egg - 1996 2. Four Carry Nuts - Grapefruit - 1996 3. Four Carry Nuts - Nuts Without Sugar - 1997 4. Four Carry Nuts - Donuts - 1997 5. Four Carry Nuts - Total Recall - 1997 6. Four Carry Nuts - Kay Sea Isle - 1998 7. Four Carry Nuts - Lucy (Female Mix) - 1999 8. Four Carry Nuts - Pflanzenfett - 2000 - Vinyl Only 9. Four Carry Nuts - Professor Hastig - 2000 10.Four Carry Nuts - Lucy (Male) - 2000 11.Four Carry Nuts ft. Dino Psaras - Bunker - 2000 https://classicgoatrax.bandcamp.com/album/four-carry-nuts-single-collection

    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

    Material Music Who? Before you even had the chance to ask that question there was already a bunch of releases out. He seems to be (from what I've heard) an artist who's been producing music the same way I've been producing art. Making it, but never showing it. Which is always a great idea? Right? Right?? Love & Magic (The Dust Album) contains a variety of tracks that don't all conform under a psychedelic trance moniker. You hear some goatrance, some psytrance, some... old school house influenced sounds and generally a really wide-spectrum of I-just-want-to-make-music. Whatever anyone thinks of that, one thing is for sure - that it's a really mixed bag of sounds and themes. Love & Magic is basically the magnum opus of Material Music. A 15 minute ride through a psychedelic fractal landscape. It's quite reminiscent of Jikkenteki with it's length and ever-evolving pace. I absolutely adore the bright synths and uplifting melodies that warp in half way through the track, really lifting it up higher. Later parts become more goay with acid lines. It's quite modern compared to what's following. And suddenly Hausmania Jam breaks whatever excpectations you had and has a 90s spacey house sounds. At 11 minutes it's an enjoyable downtempo journey. Ingenuity box is another psy/goatrancy tune, but again with a massive flavour of 90s with a slight breakbeat feel. It's another constantly evolving journey and in fact I have a hard hard time not imagining this in a suomisaundi party. The bassline is just so damn danceable. The production is addictive and really quite psychedelic. Lot's of weird sounds filling the aural landscape. I'd even call this a little foresty. Fantastic. Twitch Science continues this road. It's quite suomi-style with a fat bassline and random sounds coming in and out. Much less melodic. What is becoming awfully clear is the album's soundstage is straight up old school. It's got that early 00's techno inspired psy sound. Jailhouse suck, well, here's the old school really housy / techno sound. While not my favourite as it's sounds maybe even too raw, I can imagine this being a totally a key change in the dancefloor, to break up the pace. Space out... and In brings back a floating old school goatrance sound. If ever missed hearing new old school goatrance, well here's your chance. I love the way this track is composed. The tempo is relentless, but it's still floaty and filled with great acidy sounds. Return To Earth is really, really, really old sounding. Like the first Total Eclipse. I would almost argue this as a protogoa/trance spirited track. The melodies are surprisingly catchy and emotional. Easy to get lost into. Well scratch what I about Love & Magic, Prabudda Jani is probably the most modern track on the album. We suddenly shifted from 92' to something like 2010's. This is kind of a more typical progressive psytrance with goa sounds. The sound is like going through space at an ever-steady pace. When the track explodes at certain points it's like passing a nearby galaxy with it's hard and bright synths. Well, that was an experience. Like I've mentioned the sounds range from really early 90s to recent times. A few tracks are probably offputting to some(Jailhouse and Hausmania), but I'd whole-heartedly try this out. Especially for the old school references and the title track. I think it's especially unfortunate this is easy to ignore as it wasn't on a big label and self-released. I'd love to experience this album live. On my last note I also suggest checking his other lineup as well, this guy can really hold his own and the compositions are all really solid. There's just something epic about his sound.

    Artist: Various Title: 303 Syndrom Label: Mamomam Records Date: 10/10/2018 1. Hypnoxock - Heaven Can't Wait 2. Clementz - Medistajon 3. Median Project -Â Space Monkeys 4. Goad - Entranced 5. Jaraluca - The Ektoplazm 6. Omneon -Â Power of the Ori 7. Artha - Hall-Lux 8. Proxeeus - Suydam 9. Toxeed - Milky Way (Bonus Track) What a month for music. We've been blessed and cursed with a great set of October releases. Blessed because they all rock. Cursed because we must not only buy them all, but find the time to listen to this sweet sweet music coming our way. But I'm on holiday, so I have time and will I use it constructively? Learn a new skill, read a book, write a resume so I can apply for a job? That would be great, but you know whats better than all that? You do, I know you do, 9 Blistering tracks compiled by Mr Jaraluca. If that's not enough to stir up the hornet's nest within then just take a second look at that artwork. Still not cracking a woody? Surely that line up is all you need. Heaven Can't Wait - It can't, or maybe it can. I mean I thought I couldn't wait when i saw Hypnoxock opening this comp, but here I am. Wait I did and boy am i glad about that. An ominous intro leads quickly into a melody and some vocals then woah holy heck this becomes a great track. I still think that most tracks from Eurythmia are better than his singles but that probably has more to do with it being a masterpiece than anything. Still a good track. Medistajon - No autocorrect there, we aren't trying to spell meditation. Clementz is here with fat kicks and melodies that take you higher and higher. Balancing between light and dark for the duration of a track ain't always easy, but you wouldn't know it here. Space monkeys - Whether that's a kookaburra or a monkey really isn't important here. Median has done the usual and come in hot. That explosion after the breakbeat is incredible. This track takes you and Cappuccino the Capuchin directly through nebulas. Entranced - Goad takes us into cosmic space land which really is the most wonderful place to get Entranced. But with under 8 minutes and no real climax I feel like I just got dropped off at the edge of space and left there. The Ektoplazm - Jaraluca picks up where he left off with his last album. Only he got a little wilder, a lil more cray with the same Jaraluca full flavored spice. Very nice track. Power of the Ori - A nice spacetime banger that really take off at the 5 minute point. Man I love that moment. Raw leads and acid take center stage as Omneon marches us into battle with the full power of the Ori behind us. Hall-Lux - Did he just? Is this song the? How did he? ARTHA IS BAAAACK!! What ever he has been up to its well worth the wait. I'm saying my favourite track of the year so far. Clean screeching leads, melodies and perfect direction changes. A little bit of classic Artha dancing around a modern new sound Artha. Every element of this track is done to absolute perfection. I can only say nice pretty things. Suydam - After his track on the Va - Lotus, I really can't do anything to contain my excitement by seeing his name on a lineup. I don't need a reminder why but if I did this track would be it. While I'd probably dislocate my shoulder trying to keep up with this. Milky way (bonus track) - Do you like digital album bonus tracks? As some one who only buys digital it never really feels like a bonus track, feels more like, a track. But I'm not complaining. Another track! The comps not over! And boy am I happy about that. Toxeed comes in fast and hard with some great story telling and really cool melodies. Now I have to go and listen to his older works, I've been turnt. I'd absolutely lose my marbles if I heard this on a dancefloor. More bonus tracks! What a goshdang goddang ride. There are so many good tracks on this compilation that every time I think I have a favourite another comes along and steals my attention. While 604 Syndroms felt more dance floor friendly and spacious, 303’s is mostly space fuelled and a great homage to the instrument that made this genre what it is. I'm hoping more people purchase this to encourage more Goa comps from Mamomam. Well done to all the artists, Jaraluca and Mamomam records on what will probably be the 1st or 2nd best comp of the year. https://mamomamrecords.bandcamp.com/album/va-303-syndroms

    I thought the same but have a few issues with what this would mean. First that guardian article I posted explains how vegan farms actually destroy vital parts of the ecosystem and inhibit life from taking place via fungus, small critters, bugs, birds etc. I never considered the effect of mass use of pesticides and herbicides. Second is more an issue with the world system of capitalism and anthropocentricism, my fear is that once animals become useless to us we will stop considering them necessary when push comes to shove.

    1) A cow is continually fisted/inseminated against her will. (In human term, we call that "rape"). 2) Her baby cows are quickly and repeadetly taken away from her (usually 36 hours after birth, so the milk goes to the humans, not the calves). Thereafter, the mother cow calls for her babies for days. 3) A good portion of the male calves go the slaughterhouses. 4) When the mother cow is about 5 years old and no longer productive (mostly due to stress, exhaustion and diseases), she's slaughtered for meat. Keep in mind that the cow's natural lifespan is 20 years on average. 5) In the slaughterhouse, she's usually shocked with a bolt gun, hanged by the legs to finally have her throat cut open. That's the true face of the dairy industry my friend. When you buy milk/dairy at the supermarket, you support all of the above.

    Newly made tunes mimicking the dated sound of old school goa make no sense to me. What a waste. We have such sharp sounds now, so much cool stuff you can do with the tools available and it sounds so fresh... The vibe of old school can easily be kept in the song-writing, there's no need to intentionally make it sound date. So many releases like this. It's heartbreaking to think what could be.
