  1. Few years have passed and this one still is on my playlist. Great album!
  2. 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 sounds and I consider it a new classic.
  3. Whoa! Proper KoxBoxian mood, guy (girl ? ) really did the homework. Subtle melodies and heavy sfx usage detected, this could be huge.
  4. 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.
  5. Just bumping this one due to the last Anoebis' comment.
  6. 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 .
  7. 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, different melodies and strange, funky feeling. +1, thanks for the great review. Doesn't matter what music will be released next, I'm pretty sure this album will stay in my Top 10 of 2015.
  8. Now that's some archeological topic diggin' if I've ever saw one. First poster should be an expert on goa trance by now.
  9. 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 .
  10. 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.

    Ovnimoon - Holistic

    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 ?
  12. Sometimes You don't know You want something badly until someone else mentions about it. Now I want the sample for yesterday .
  13. I'll just put this one here (form different topic):
  14. I've been waiting for more than decade to read sentence like this.
  15. I suggest different approach, maybe Traci Lords - Control (Juno Reactor remix)? I think we could look outside the goa/psy scene and being on first Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack have helped this one and reached few people for sure.
  16. What does that mean? Great album btw, for me it skips from Transwave through AP to Etnica, but with their own twist. No walls of sound, which is nice. This one should stay with me for a while .
  17. I might be the third dog running away with a bone . To make things clear I'll just repeat - please, consider Poramento's LP and thank our trio later.
  18. Oh, don't scratch that - I think You've got it right the first time . It's an album I keep going back to. Pure energy blast, no dumb solutions.
  19. I have one friend who's into goa/psy and he started getting into it independently. The rest doesn't know/like or (in some rare cases) has moved on. Strangely my dad likes it, he was always telling me that oldschool goa/regular trance suits him well while driving (mostly producers like BPC or Union Jack) .
  20. I'm almost sure this one will stay on my 'best of 2014' list no matter what happens next. Another 'keep an eye on' artist unlocked.
  21. Yeah, I don't know if it's ironic or simply enthusiastic attitude, guess I didn't get too much sleep lately.
  22. +1 I think it doesn't work for me because the focus is mostly on weird effects and not enough melody (they don't have to be in my face but a little nod would be welcome - that's why Darshan's first LP is positively excluded from the bunch ). I couldn't get into Hux Flux or Double Dragon especially. Most of the times it's better to move on instead of trying to force-listening and waiting for the dazzle to come, just because the others had the epiphany. I know what You're saying, listening to E-Mantra I always imagine a spaceship flying on and on and on... People seem to praise Alienapia's album, but to me it's too loud too much and at the same time (furiously barking dog on a leash comes to mind). Also Asia 2001, I know this guy has lots of fans, but 95% of his work doesn't do much for me.
  23. This guy knows how to revive the old spirits, he deserves to be among the best within the genre for sure.
  24. Just by reading psynews forum it occurs that Boris Blenn has let down his 90's fans (even those from Cosmic Experience era) at least few times. I'm with those who say his latest fullon LP's could combine into one decent production (IMO, of course, if someone likes cheddar and guitars in psy, there's plenty of delicusness for him). Blenn's Galaxy alter ego is another story. Great melodic journey, as Spiral Mind wrote - delicately psychedelic, nontheless psy-vibe is certainly present all the time. T2MU brought Vangelis, I'd add Tangerine Dream, another greats from the beginning of electronic music. Old flow with new gear, recommended.
  25. I think You should read this post and the topic in general, because maybe You didn't get it properly . Going back in topic, I won't be too original: Electric Universe - Stardiver (pure sentimental value, but nonetheless worth listening) Hallucinogen - The Lone Deranger (crazy stuff, together with 'Twisted' is the father of all unpredictable trance) KoxBox - Dragon Tales (this one is so psychedelic, it's too much for some ) Pleiadians - I.F.O. (this album contains energy and melodies for at least three other LP's) Total Eclipse - Violent Relaxation (two discs for two different moods, both great)
