  1. After Your post I've tried it again and, unfortunately, with the same effect. To my ears the tunes sound like a long, multilayered build-ups. I guess I need more ear-candies . Nevertheless, strong album, just not my cup of tea.
  2. Great production, but I couldn't get into it. To me it's like E-Mantra's psytrance - everything's swirling & floating through space but I can't single anything out, just different patterns one after another.
  3. Really digging this one. I guess I'm a sucker for melodic morning goa .
  4. Are You trying to say, that there will be more Portamento's music? Don't even dare to tease like that, if it's not the truth! I haven't found anything similar to the vibe of 'Portal'.
  5. Few years have passed and this one still is on my playlist. Great album!
  6. Digging up this fossil (alphabetical order): Art of Trance - Wildlife on One Astral Projection - Dancing Galaxy Electric Universe - Stardiver Hallucinogen - Twisted Infected Mushroom - Classical Mushroom KoxBox - Dragon Tales Pleiadians - I.F.O. Portamento - The Portal Total Eclipse - Violent Relaxation Transwave ‎– Helium Some of them are here having sentimental value to me (like Art Of Trance, Electric Universe or Total Eclipse ) and some because they are IMO untouchable (Hallucinogen, KoxBox, Pleiadians). Portamento's album brought me back to goa/psy sound
  7. Whoa! Proper KoxBoxian mood, guy (girl ? ) really did the homework. Subtle melodies and heavy sfx usage detected, this could be huge.
  8. Could someone tell me why there are lot of post 2004 producers whose style is inspired by AP, MFG, Pleiadians or Transwave, making dancefloor bombs or deep-space storytelling tunes but there are only two or three trying to explore crazier/stranger side of goa? Is it harder to achieve? I'm asking because new wave artists talking about their inspirations often mention Hallucinogen or KoxBox next to those I've written earlier.
  9. Just bumping this one due to the last Anoebis' comment.
  10. Very true, but having just about one LP a year plus some tracks/ep's made by his label mates can't be considered a saturation imo .
  11. Infected Mushroom have stopped years ago, Talpa has moved to some kind of horror-prog, I haven't heard anything new from Principles Of Flight and it's been ten years since Misted Muppet's album. Terrafractyl is the man I need in psytrance. Cinematic and inventive psychedelic at its best, His tunes hit all the right spots in my ears. I've read through few Terrafractyl discussions, some people complain about similar basslines and drums. Well, it's sometimes true, His releases aren't very versatile in this area, but I consider it as another producer's stamp, it's all about atmosphere, d
  12. Now that's some archeological topic diggin' if I've ever saw one. First poster should be an expert on goa trance by now.
  13. I don't think I've ever seen less 'goa-ish' covers than this bunch. Looks like your every summer radio hits album (although 'erotic goa' sounds intriguing). Maybe it's like in UK garage - more vocals and melodies was 'for the ladies', harsh and more bass for the guys, so maybe it's not about the gender of the producer, but the gender of the music .
  14. Just this topic shows there will never be one best new school album (I think I'm safe to write it without 'IMO' )), not only that, but even defining one or another as 'masterpiece' raises questions. Personally I'm in team-Portamento . Who should attract more attention than he gains on this forum? Question driven only by curiosity.

    A bit OT, but sometimes I want my favourite artists not to change their styles too often, at the end of the day that's why (among other things) we like them, right ?
