  1. Hello Everyone, OK, let's all take a breath and address a few things. First of all, I can see that me just taking a pause from the goa trance scene was interpreted as basically any possible interpretation ever. But let's then answer about some of the things that were expressed on this thread: A number of DAT releases expired past the original contracts with the artists after X number of years, and so we are renegotiating to continue to make remaining copies available as possible. Meanwhile, Covid also put a big halt to several planned releases for the year, which we are continuing to prep

  2. Dear friends, The votes have been uploaded to my main supercomputer and have been counted a thousand times over and over again. As always, these lists are gold. Some of you will encounter hidden gems, stuff that you missed... or you can start digging those sweet downtempo albums to find the perfect background soundtrack. A big thank you to all artists and labels for the music. Even if your score is not in the upper range, being included in the list means someone noticed your music and it means that now we are ALL noticing your music. Congratulations!

  6. Dear Suntrippers! 1.) New VA - Gamma Draconis 2.) Future releases ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1.) New VA - Gamma Draconis We are very proud to release our new compilation, Gamma Draconis! After years of working with these goa-trance legends they made 1 more old school goa-trance track especially for us! So, lets revive for once that amazing 90s vibe! The result is an 8 track compilation with music that ranges from classic melodic trance, modern goa-trance to darker acidic stuff by the biggest names in trance history!

  9. *clears throat* \begin{rant} So, these days, psytrance = something like vini vici or armin van buuren Real talk, just search for "modern psytrance" - I can't distinguish between any of them, there's nothing unique, it's always the same shit. That shit ain't got nada to do with psy. I mean, if they can pay their bills and make ends meet, sure, whatever, more power to em, but that shit ain't for me. Of course old school goa trance sounds dated. It's not bland and monotonous with the same god damn "kick" and slight variation to melody, if any is present in the first place - most likel

  11. What's gold is the fact that this scene was built in the back of murderous ex-military Israelites & has-been hippies abusing the seemingly liberal lifestyle afforded to them by a poverty stricken nation desperate for the money they brought, with not a care to the devastation this scene has caused to the people of Goa & India over the decades. Furthermore misusing religious prayers & symbols with drug abused while claiming its for enlightenment when it's just an excuse to drop chemicals and become wankers. This scene was and still is the ultimate in religious & cu

  12. I'm missing colorful, story-telling 10+ min tracks... rest assured, they're rare to hear because they're difficult to make. There needs to be coherence within the change and it's actually difficult to achieve without some level of conceptual thinking. It's exactly these sort of threads on Psynews that initially sparked the flame to start composing. My personal vision can only be materialized by me. In fact, I'm gonna open my FL and try to come up with final melody to the last track of forthcoming 4th album.

  13. Complex subject, complex melody or no complex melody, musical theory or no musical theory. Personally either complex melodic or not complex melodic tracks either have it or they don't. This is foremost dance music, its origins kicking up red laterite dust on the Goan shore line, so we can expect complex melody to have a second place to groove and atmosphere (which is often created using simple melody). Of close second importance this is trance music, the goal is to hypnotize, greater complexity melodically or with sonic layers tends to retract from this potential. I know from experience here.

  21. My order is in. I still have to double- and triple-check to believe it. Let's just hope that it arrives safely too. Very nice reissue in its simplicity, by the way. In some threads I've been lamenting the recent extra fancy bundles which cost an arm and a leg, don't show the original artwork properly, and sometimes don't even fit into a normal shelf. This one seems to deliver the original release and some extra tracks, no frills. £24.99 is/was a fair price too. 1150 copies? Could have been more because price-wise this was well within the reach of an average fan. Let's see how long

  23. "Turns out this thing goes deeper than I imagined!" Does it though? I haven't done one of these for a while so...here goes! Suntrip has been the gold standard for goa trance since 2004 and with this compilation they are merging the very compatible styles of goa trance and forest psytrance. Two projects that should immediately come to mind are Ka-Sol and Battle of the Future Buddhas and they are indeed represented here. First thing to take note of is the very nice cover art. On that front Suntrip rarely disappoints. Deeper Reality opens things up with a rather benign and tim

The protesters that go demonstrating in masses without masks and the who people actively break the rules - all of them worry me a lot I had this Covid shit already and I'm quite anxious to get it again, I really _really_ don't need that - also for the well being of my family and all people dear to me.

  26. Well I suppose it’s about time to officially state that I’m back and making music again. While it will be awhile before I get anything new out there, I have started plugging away at some new tunes. In the meantime I have finally started a Bandcamp page at https://jikkenteki.bandcamp.com While all the material there is also at Ektoplazm, I am also in the process of consolidating some older stuff, compilation tracks and such to put up on Bandcamp as well until I’m ready to unleash some new stuff. As for the new stuff, well “jikkenteki” means “experimental” in Japanese and that name

  27. I can't help wondering sometimes how it would sound if some of the trance maestros would venture into goa trance. The combination of inspired melodies/emotions and oftentimes euphoric sensations, would make for great goa trance. Kinda like how I feel like MWNN and Astral Projection at times sounded more on the trance side of things. The cross-over between these two very closely related genres has been surprisingly low all things considered.

  28. The site is up again, thats the news? As for Gamma Draconis 2... You have to know this cd was in the making for 3.5 years, that long it took us to find 8 tracks that were "good enough" in our opinion. At least 20 of classic guys didnt make it. I will be honest, it did not make us popular, but well... if some feel the magic again, we will go for a Gamma Draconis part 2

  29. Hi all! So we've gone ahead and upgrade the board to version 4.5.2 which brought new features for the board. The mobile interface should be much better now and some new smaller features have also slipped in. Upgrading the board however broke the old BlueBoh and Black Chrome themes pretty badly and I've manually created a color profile for psynews called Penzonews and set it as default theme. If you find new glitches or bugs please post them on this thread. We will see if there is something we can do about it. Don't bother requesting features since I don't think any of us know ho

  30. Hello psyber friends, Hope you all having a great year.. cough cough... So this year at least got me focused on finishing some tracks for a project I started. I got one track down (more or less) and have another 2 in works which I fee; have some potential. Anyway, I had posted it in some forums for feedback and overall got a great and warm response. A couple people had suggested to me that I could probably try get this kind of material released. I didn't think too much of, but then another guy who run a decent Youtube channel told me the same thing, and then also my track some

  31. Have you heard such basslines on big and good soundsystems on parties and festivals? Or is it just home listening? In my opinion when you put so much effort in something it can't be soulless, nevermind if it's made for huge audience like Vini Vici or for normal psytrance events. You put so much time, effort and yourself into someting. You literally put soul into it. EU - Mad Tribe guys are killer, probably one of best Psy music today and stand out. So clean yet so dirty with loads of 90s sounds! New Burn in Noise album is amazing, he have

  32. Hi there everyone, I've been wanting to do video reviews for a while now, my hope is that it will bring more hits to the music and somehow add to the scene. Any way self-righteous ramblings aside, this is my first attempt, I hate it, but need to start somewhere.

  33. I am not the overseer of all psy trance kick and bass but I know a few bits and bobs. Just as well as every time I make a track I use different synths different processing and I enjoy that, at least 5 different bass synths (I like Bazzism and Kick2 equally for different reasons). There is no easy answer, there is no.... do X, Y and Z and then you have great kick and bass. (How many times did you follow the many tutorials and got to the end thinking it sounds nothing like the video !) Never think of this as bass alone or kick alone, both affect the character of the overlap, they are as one (and

  35. So my wife inherited a place with a basement which is rare in Melbourne, Australia. Was meant to. Her Dad's wine cellar but seeing as I don't drink anymore I'm turning it in to a music room. At this point I've just repainted it, had some acoustic treatment done by a pro & put some furniture in. gear currently consists of MacBook Pro 15" 2019 (Ableton & Bitwig), presonus audio interface ( will replace late in the year), JBL LSR305 monitors (replacing with Genelec later on), Sequential Pro 3, Pittsburgh Modular Voltage Research Lab & Erica Synths a Techno system.

  37. Hi ... just to let you know, the channel is not dead ... new video has just been uploaded ... why so long? well, I had a few things that kept me off uploading, such as catching Covid, getting a new PC ... and so forth Artist interviews would be super cool - if we had anybody that did them ... seriously though, I don't think there's going to be any if there's no help, because even if I can shake hands with artists on parties occasionally, interviewing them is a wholly different caliber... I won't be shy to ask though. It's a good input cheers

  38. I do understand the need for taking a break etc. but transparency and informing your fans goes a long way rather than being silent and having a lot of things happen. People are passionate about the music and I feel speculation over oddities is only natural as they care about the label. Great news that everything should get back in order though.

  41. I agree, we need to set the bar higher for how we behave here on psynews. We should have zero tolerance for disruptive behaviour here, there is already plenty enough of those attitudes/behaviours on all the regular social platforms. This should be a safe haven from such nonsense. Or else it will spiral downwards fast, disruptive attitudes tend to spread on forums, like a viral infection in a population. I think mods need to step in and do some desinfection/quarantine work here

Coincidentally daughter turns five in a few weeks. My wife isn't overly maternal and the bulk of the child rearing has fallen on me. I don't get much free time to do what I want or listen to what I want.
