  1. Flexy-discs? well that's retro, welcome to the 50s That aside I would love to be at this party.
  2. yes it is confirmed, but first the compilation and mind rewind 4, then etnica and then more!
  3. Hello everyone, sorry for the absence, we were all very busy with holiday and then festival (ZNA) and it was truly a nice summer. We are now back on track to work on new releases (Mind Rewind 4 coming) as well as a new compilation on DAT (the 3rd in the "Analog" series) but most importantly we have re-opened the shop for whoever wanted to get the Pleiadians 4LP, sorry for the delay and enjoy!
  4. @antic604, it seems to me you are making a big deal out of this. The release date is 1st August when people will get the download and the cds. The cd will have a bandcamp code to download the tracks. If you only want the files wait for the official release day, it seems all very logic and simple to me, no backward thinking, just you wanting the file this very moment, before it's even released.
  5. Zygote FTW really it is just an awesome track, played that track so many times.... i definitely agree with you and love how they combine classical without becoming cheesy, it's another level of Goa, nobody else does this in this way.
  6. 123 excludes shipping but to sweden is not too bad, the package with 3 versions weighs 3kg so nope i cannot offer the shipping included, sorry
  7. DAT Records are proud to reissue the original I.F.O. album together with an incredible live set for the first time ever on vinyl. Released in a 4LP Deluxe Gatefold, it is a stellar edition and a real collector’s item for whoever wants to own the most important album of the Italian Maestros. It comes in 3 versions, Black, Red Transparent + Black and the special Galaxy Version that is a mixture of colours and includes glitters made of silver dust. Each version features the records pressed at 180grams and exists in 100 copies. Tracklist: Pleiadians - I.F.O. Live A1 Pleiadians - Merope 12:36 A2 Pleiadians - Alcyone 8:42 B1 Pleiadians - Asterope 11:26 B2 Pleiadians - Maia 10:37 C1 Pleiadians - Electra 9:46 C2 Pleiadians - Taygeta 9:23 D Etnica - Vimana (Pleiadians Live Mix) 10:25 Pleiadians - I.F.O. [i.dentified F.lying O.bject] E Pleiadians - Maia 11:14 F1 Pleiadians - Taygeta 8:38 F2 Pleiadians - Merope 9:15 G1 Pleiadians - Alcyone 8:23 G2 Pleiadians - Electra 9:09 H1 Pleiadians - Asterope 11:35 H2 Pleiadians - Celaeno 11:45 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 many of the tracks found on the DAT tapes. Prepare for an interstellar voyage, a joyride of space galactic music mayhem that will take you to places you cannot imagine! Official Release Date: 7th July 2017 Get your copy now on www.datrecords.it
  8. DoktorG, thanks for your review and your spot-on opinion, me and Cristian are delighted to read these words and happy you have enjoyed the album that much. It was never intended to be in direct comparison with the original but rather to pay a tribute.
  9. samples were added on the DAT Records website, so you can get an idea about the other tracks too
  10. hoefully my cd and tshirt are on the way too, can't wait!!
  11. In all fairness it doesn't seems too bad of a crowd and also, it was early morning so probably many were sleeping but who was there said the atmosphere was fantastic and it doesn't always need to be a party with 1000+ people to be great. In some cases, and I have noticed this in Belgium mostly, they limit on purpose the number of people that can go to a party to a max of 300-500 people so that everyone has space to dance and the place doesn't get overcrowded. It generates a lot of good vibes to be able to dance without feeling like a sardine, so in many cases it is appreciated If this set was recorded in full would be an amazing document, but we are glad at least this bit survived.
  12. @psychannel. The test pressings are just 10, also, the blue is the same for all copies but the other one ranges from that colour that you see and completely clear with smoke in it. They are quite unique, I guess for some collectors, I'd accept some offers but they won't be for sale in the store. PM me if you are dying to have one and we can figure smth out. If I remember well you also asked about the slipmat I have in my video, it was purchased in the 70s in NYC, not sure it can be found easily around or if they ever repressed it...
  13. That We Are The World is the strangest salad mix it all from all melodies of the goa world... weird! I do believe it can be enjoyed with purple embraces while alternating with what is love.
  14. @K1NG trolololol , sorry mate but as this year GN'R reunited,there's also hope for the t-shirts... my gfx artist did something but i was superbusy with the vinyl... !!!
  15. Excellent, thanks for sharing!!
  16. Spot on KING! Exactly the philosophy of this one, to put the needle on and be waiting for the surprise
  17. It is because this release is targeting , or aims to target, a different audience. In the techno, acid and trance scene the vinyl is seen as the most important format and the fact it is given priority it is appreciated. Also, with the background story hopefully people will be tempted to hear the album and since the main track is a hit, should be a no brainer to buy it. I was advised to not reveal anything about the release, nor the real tracklist or put any samples until the first two weeks have passed so that curious listeners will be tempted to buy to have it asap. It is a very different approach and I am trying it, just saying. That said, who has heard the other tracks told me I selected good from the demo, only one track we had to skip as the cd-r was unreadable beyond repair and it was the sole existing copy of the track (the artists and I looked+asked around). But that said, the other 3 trunes are really great. The EP has 5 tracks as one is an intermission that is less than two minutes long, so it doesn't really count as a full track. I will eventually place some samples after a little while for sure though
  18. Sorry I cannot understand this statement "I don't see any way that these two are exclusive of each other." ?? what do you mean?
  19. However, the physical item doesn't risk to "die suddently" like an hard drive. Yes there were a few discs made in the 90s with bad manufacturing process that are now unreadable (and the cd-r) but the good pressed CD will last until you pass them to a newer generation. I do believe they might come back in fashion in maybe 10 years when people will see the commodity of a CD again (after they vinyl hype will be done) as everything in this life goes in cirlce it is not entirely impossible (and mars told me once he thought the same). However without all you good collectors it will be very hard to continue what we do at DAT, Suntrip, Zion, Hado, GS Concept, Cronomi, Goa Madness and the newly risen and good labels of Thanos and of Joost. If more and more people go this direction it will be very hard to survive for us. I do know right now with producing vinyl I might go on a bit but it is just sad to read this.
  20. I believe he wants to pay his tribute to the classics, in his style, and maybe introduce them to full on new crowds. This one I kind of like, also very cool video:
  21. I forgot to mention it is available for ordering on datrecords.it and on discogs (however it's best the first option!) Bandcamp will eventually come at the end of the month, we are undecided on when releasing the digital version as we really want to push the vinyl first.
