  1. @psyhoe, we had asked for some gatefgold as large as the ones used for the Etnica 3LP but it turns out they printed them 1mm narrower, hence it's a bit more tricky to insert the vinyl. However, if you open the gatefold entirely, and insert them one by one, they actually fit correctly but I agree we need to use some gatefold that are a bit larger on the spine, next time.We don't like the trible gatefold though, but we'll see in the future. Glad you love the result, we are really happy of them! @denstrow, unfortunately we were not given the rights to distribute said track in digital format, as we had a deal for the physical copies only of the ZNA compilation, I do hope you'll find a way to get it ripped, maybe ask a friend? So sorry about this but it was already a privilege to be able to release it at all!
  2. Are you ready?! Have a look at the photo and then read the official announcement : I am on the moon really DAT Records are incredibly happy to present the expanded version of the mythical Tetrahedron album for the first time ever on vinyl! A wonderful collector's edition housed in a beautiful triple Deluxe Gatefold, a stellar addition for everyone who appreciated the wonderful alchemy created by the Italian Maestros. It comes in 3 different editions: Black / Fluo Neon Green / Splattered Neon Green with Dark Green and Black. Pressed at 180 grams per record, it exists in only 69 copies per edition available to the public. We used premium virgin vinyl only and have worked with a team of audio engineer to ensure the colours used, would reproduce the music perfectly, even on the splatter edition. It's rare to have this kind of effect with no audio compromise, but we have achieved it and we are sure you will love the result. Crop Circles - Tetrahedron A Lunar Civilization (Pleiadians Remix) B1 Antonomasia (Remix) B2 Daffy Duck On The Comet C1 Pentagon C2 Classic Process [Hale-Bopp] D1 Cerealogy D2 Full Mental Jackpot [Etnica Remix II] E1 Ghost Circle E2 No More Singles (Remix) F1 Fried Vegans F2 Skunkerie Written-by: Crop Circles Artwork: Miro Moric & Federico DraekeMastering: Jaroslav Valo @ Analog Dimension Style: Goa Trance As you may have noticed, there are some never before heard exclusive tracks that will be available for the very first time and only on this release, making it extra special. We were able to locate these mythical and rare tracks on some lost DAT tapes that the band had archived in Milan and that had forgotten about. The music has been gently mastered, taking extra care in preserving the dynamics of the original recordings, after an attempt restoration process that was needed for some of the tracks found on the DAT tapes. The tracks have been taken from source tapes once again and mastered by Analog Dimension, with a special treatment designed for vinyl, so once again we started from scratch to ensure the best possible result. Prepare for an interstellar trip, a joyful explosion of extra terrestrial music that will take you to places you cannot imagine or dream. Official Release Date: 23rd November 2019 - Available for ordering from the 16th (now) Limited to ONE copy per customer, the Vinyl will be available through DAT Records website or on Bandcamp. Digital Download will appear later on, for now it's vinyl only.
  3. It is a bit weird to say real goa is dying, it has died in 1999 maybe? but then again it resurrected many times again and again. In the timespan that is 1993 till today you will find a lot of good music to listen to, be it made int he early days or a week ago. you just need to find what you like. Oh and the girl from techossomy avatar is a metal girl singer from the 80-90s,
  4. Hello everyone, this post is to introduce our little new adventure, a sublabel that was born after many years working within the realms of unreleased music. We have received a lot of promos from artist from all the eras and have also actively searched and investigated a lot of projects that were otherwise forgotten. The idea came naturally as an extension to DAT Records and to create a digital sublabel was a necessity as there is a huge interest for the oldschool goa trance and psytrance music in all its forms. With this sub-label in fact, we are trying to promote not just the typical sound that we would promote within the main label but to open wide our horizons and include some styles and genres that we normally have not published. Will it be including modernly produced music? Not yet, as we do have a huge catalogue of releases almost ready to go and it is thanks to the work of the whole team of the Unreleased Goa blog that we have achieved this. But this is the adventure mostly of Vas Cosmogenesis, a precious collaborator who was through in his investigations and relentlessly contacted hundreds of artists in the years to prepare for this launch. I came up with the label name and we started moving early in this year. Now you can listen to the fruit of our hard work and we do hope to get some support and appreciation for all that has been done. We are very happy of the upcoming releases and you'll be surprised, I am sure! Enjoy http://www.datrecords.it/dat/unreleased-goa-records/ugr-announcement.html https://unreleasedgoarecords.bandcamp.com/
  5. Search no more! It has been officially remastered and released :)!! https://unreleasedgoarecords.bandcamp.com/releases
  6. Sorry to hear that neptun, I hope things will get sorted for you as well!
  7. So let's do a proper announcement for the K.U.R.O. & Charm release: K.U.R.O. & Charm - Japanese Vibrations [DATCD014] Disc 1 – K.U.R.O. 01 - K.U.R.O. - Ginga 02 - K.U.R.O. - Daybreak 03 - K.U.R.O. - Electric Room 04 - K.U.R.O. - Automotive 05 - K.U.R.O. - Doppler Effect 06 - K.U.R.O. - Planet 1996 07 - K.U.R.O. - K-2 08 - K.U.R.O. - Transgate 09 - K.U.R.O. - Ionosphere 10 - K.U.R.O. - Copernicus 11 - K.U.R.O. - Magnolia 12 - K.U.R.O. - Outro Disc 2 - Charm 01 - Charm - Archaic 02 - Charm - Deep Inside 03 - Charm - Atavistic Cycle 04 - Charm - Ancient Religion 05 - Charm - Global Village 06 - Charm - Spiritual Chaos 07 - Charm - Riders 08 - Charm - Untitled 09 - Charm - Big Bang 10 - Charm - Storm (Mecca) 11 - Charm - Around 12 - Charm - Sleepers Disc 3 01 - Genshi - Future Memory 02 - Genshi - Medicine 03 - Genshi - Crystallize 04 - Genshi - Psycho Genetic Time 05 - Perfect Rainbow - Exotic Eye (Before Mix) 06 - Trance Warp - A Voyage With The Stars 07 - Sora - Night Child 08 - Sora - Flash 09 - Sora - Open Artwork: Miro Moric & Federico Draeke Mastering: Jaroslav Valo @ Analog Dimension Style: Goa Trance Description : The triple album of K.U.R.O. & Charm is something completely unexpected, a treasure from the land of the rising sun. This music will make you dream of oriental landscapes, of lotus flowers, of psychedelic fragrances from a different universe, and feel the special energy of those years. The DAT tapes were preserved as a treasure by the artist and we are so lucky that they remained in perfect condition for so long. All the tracks contained in this deluxe triple edition were in fact produced between 1992 and 1998, as explained in detail in the 8-page booklet included. The collaboration with master K.U.R.O. is something that the label wanted to do for a very long time to promote the incredible Japanese sound worldwide and to create a bond with the land of the magic. DAT Records is so proud to present a spectacular selection from the Japanese masters and we are sure that you may remember these tracks from partying in Japan while others will be delighted to hear these compositions for the first time. The music has been remastered from the original master files by Analog Dimension, and both the artist and the label are very happy with the results, so have fun and enjoy this superb music. Release Date: 11 October 2019 available here: http://www.datrecords.it/dat/online-shop-2.html#!/K-U-R-O-&-Charm-Japanese-Vibrations-DATCD014/p/151172160/category=178775 http://datrecords.bandcamp.com
  8. I just want to inform that I have been refunded on my pledge of the campaign and that even if I am sad the album was never finished, Kristian made things right. We hope he may finish the album sometimes and put it on bandcamp maybe, that would be great and also he won't have the pressure to finish it because of the campaign.
  9. @Grayling, sorry, I don't really come regularly to psynews and certainly have not done a lot of sales/post sale assistance in the forum. I will of course help to solve this situation as surely something is not right. However I encourage everyone who make a purchase to contact me everywhere else (official dat website, bandcamp, discogs, facebook). But I really am not logging here very often or check PM, I don't get notifications if someone write me here, so I see it only if I log. That said, we will make things right
  10. Yeah sorry, all the orders have actually been shipped, but we have not updated the status on DAT shop, will do that now, thanks for the reminder! :D
  11. Around 200 were sold at ZNA, more or less, the shop was not too well advertised so people were not too aware of the CD being there, but we are happy, so we have copies for sale for sure for everyone who would want to support our work. We are so blessed to have had the chance to release all these tracks! I would expect to hear some comments about Hallucinogen track though? What do you guys think of it? It's new but sounds oldschool
  12. How was the summer everyone? We've all had a wonderful time at the ZNA Gathering festival in Portugal and over there we launched our latest release, the official compilation than Mark and I have compiled for the occasion. An explosive mix of previously unreleased killers that will delight end entertain everyone for the winter to come :). Tracklist goes like this: VA - ZNA Gathering Retro Futuristic Compilation II 1–Man With No Name - Who Is It? 2–Medicine Drum - Angelic Force (Funky Angel Mix) 3–Masa - Infinite Space 4–Tromesa - Bonanza 5–Technossomy - Elektron Bender (Live Mix) 6–Total Eclipse - Chaotic Circus (Summer 1996 Live Mix) 7–Ubar Tmar - VS (Early Mix) 8–Hallucinogen - Horrorgram (Remix) 9–Battle Of The Future Buddhas - pH+ueKKed DATCDZNA And yet every track is from the 90s except for Mr. Hallucinogen who granted us a NEW production, yes you read right, a track he has remixed in 2019, and that sounds absolutely fantastic!! You don't want to miss your copy, as Simon track is exclusive to the CD only. We believe it is really a killer compilation. KURO and Crop Circles 3LP are being pressed, and to be released shortly, The first should be ready in a week and the second , was going to be ready now but we rejected the first test pressing as we want it to be stellar this time. Infinite Zen and Nemo will come after those, but they will come out too. More news soon! Meanwhile, get your copies here: http://www.datrecords.it/dat/online-shop-2.html or here: https://datrecords.bandcamp.com/ please note that the digital download only of the compilation on bandcamp will NOT include Hallucinogen track, as per agreement with Simon.
  13. Dear beloved supporters and fan of the work of DAT Records, it is with enormous pleasure that I can say that the production of the crop circles release on vinyl is going ahead and we are very close. We should have copies in store in early July and we are so happy about it. I also want to tell you that in all these months we have worked relentlessly to make some big announcements about our future at DAT. More Exciting news, coming soon
  14. I do still have hopes that the album will eventually get released.
  15. Hello Pezcore, if you still use the forum, please contact me, i am draeke of DAT Records. cheers
