  1. I have a request, while browsing the interview section I noticed that there isn't any interview with Mystica. Seeing that they/or at least one of their original members is still doing retro-sets, could someone pehaps make an interview?
  2. Here we have some ear candy in the form of smooth acidic goa trance. It sounds somewhat inspired by the Shamanic Tribes On Acid ‎– 303 To Infinity album. The approach is indeed a more floating one than on previous albums/aliases, all of the 303 lines are without distortion in order to give it a smoother more liquid style. It's a welcome change after having sifted through most of the goa albums/EP's/compilations on his bandcamp. As this album is less hectic, and offers a more chilled-out experience. I haven't listened to all the tracks yet, favourite so far is Himalayas, a very good track. The track Ascendancy is a bit too monotonous and drags on a bit with the same patterns. The album is very psychedelic in the sense that it has these fractal-like effects on some of the percussive elements, as well as in the melodies. Rather colorful bright music, which I think is reflected well in the cover artwork. The album has a fresh inspired sensation, and feels very summery to me. Perhaps with a touch of a cold Himalayan breeze. Upon listening to some more of the tracks, I can say that it's a really solid album. I like all tracks so far, Ascendancy is not a bad track per se, but compared to the rest it was not as varied. This is good music for the treadmill/forest run, as it is energetic and meditative at the same time. It isn't stressful, but still has enough energy to keep you going. Origami is a cool track very uplifting and fresh, with some hints of mystique.
  3. Good stuff! And what a perfect introduction to this wonderful genre.
  4. It's just amazing ancient egyptian inspired downtempo.
  5. I definitely think he could enjoy it in the right context, for example during a studio session with Youth, perhaps in a micro-dosed state. And yes if he has known Youth for quite some time, I would assume that he must've been exposed to it at some point of their friendship. Then again there's so much different goa made, one would hope that some of it might hit home with an older generation of psychedelic explorers. (Like in the case of Raja Ram). My bet would be that he would love some of the more downtempo psy stuff. Like Younger Brother or Shpongle perhaps. And yeah a collab between McCartney and Posford would be awesome of course. And if we also take into consideration how much of a cultural shock the first goa wave was in the UK during the 90's, as it continued the issues the general public had with the raves since back in the acid rave days. Paul must've followed the phenomenon with curiousity. Since he as well has the experience of beeing part of a culture that wasn't entirely accepted by the "adults" in the beginning. And the parallels between the hippie era of the 60's and the 90s goa wave are of course there as an obvious aspect, which he surely could've reflected on, as it must've been quite a déjà-vu. I can totally see Paul watching this on the TV in 1995:
  6. So yeah I tried all the skins, the issue is there on all 3 of em. And I also noticed that it affects one thread of another member as well, as you can see there in the print screen of the Paul McCartney thead. I tried browsing the forum logged out now as well, out of curiousity, and yes it's still there.
  7. So from this we can deduce that a thread made back in february is not affected by the glitch. So I'm not sure yet if my threads are only like this from my POV, or for other users as well. And not sure either if the actual view count gets delayed and will display proper values in some days/weeks/months from now. We should be able to narrow down the culprits atleast :). I'm gonna test now as well with the other forum skins, to see if the issue persists "across the board".
  8. It's only on recently made threads that I've noticed the glitch so far, pretty much all my recent threads in the general section. Hold on gonna try and get a printscreen of this "ghost in the machine"
  9. Yes indeed, and a rather cool thing I discovered just recently is that Eutuchia Records/Music has made some deal that got them a huge chunk of the classic Nitzhonot releases. Like all the Shiva Space Technology compilations among other things, so there is tons of it now on spotify thanks to this aquisition/catalog expansion. However it's not as of today added to discogs. It's not remasters or anything just the originals put on spotify. Only way you can tell is by looking at each album/compilation on spotify and seeing the Eutuchia label copyright thing at the bottom of the album/compilation.
  10. Baghdad Legends Oriental Music Zone Stellar downtempo, just listen to those lush Eventide type reverbs.
  11. Egyptian Meditation Temple - Ramses Secret Rather nice egyptian themed meditation music
  12. Egyptian Meditation Temple - Ancient Egyptian Path Yeah really beautiful mediation music in the Egyptian theme.
