  1. too many heheh just in my playlist right now: chable and the dirty fours - tokyo (nubreed rmx) petter - those days (sasha involver mix) momu - adoru (clubbervision rmx) and maaany others
  2. indeed very nice very nice chill stuff hehe im just starting to check out gaudium - nordic nature saw many good reviews.. lets see if its over hyped normal prog psy or really good indeed
  3. the 2 main trance festivals you should check out, as bad trip said, is Universo Paralello (www.universoparalello.art.br) and Solaris festival in february appart from trance festivals, in february there is the famous Carnival, happening all around brazil.. You probably seen images of it, the half naked women with some weird costumes, lots of beer, samba and other traditional music, etc... where in brazil do you plan on going? Universo Paralello in new year is in Bahia, north-east of brazil... Solaris is in sao paulo state, in the south east... and carnival is all around, from south to north and yes, OD, mardi grass is in new orleans usa, but it is in some aspects similar to brazillian carnival (costumes, the moving sound cars, alcohol, half naked women, etc)
  4. I used to like pots a lot.. hope they didnt become another normal prog psy boring stuff, but some artist that are always evolving like antix & co
  5. nope, I like track 1 too, for sure just that I already had it from va Playground... but its still defo good although my favourite is still track 3 and the amaaaaazing break
  6. he means that if you listen to astrix, which is full on, you'll definitely hear the difference between antix, which is progressive trance (with some prog house influences) dont know if it was clear enough when he said it
  7. last track: d-nox - seven hours np: klein & zenker - chapter 11 next track: sub 6 - 7th son (andre absolut rmx)
  8. entheogenic track is very nice, good speed, not too chilled and not too fast, nice colours, good melodies.. elysium is nice, but nothing speciall... it has this ´fat cyborg robotic´ sound in loop just before the vocals, and it doesnt fit the track..the track itself is calm and somehow tribal, not much my style, but its nice ishq - I really dont like in general beatless ambient tracks, but this track here (so as the other ishq tracks released) is brilliant! fking beautiful stuff, perfect to listen with closed eyes.. very colourfull, very visual, very beautiful... someday I´ll listen to this on acid for sure, must be great shulman (cbl rmx) is damn nice.. I just wish they would have given more emphasis to that really cool ´bass´ that appears later on... The mix between shulman´s original flutes and the rest of the track is ver good Jaia.. am I the only one that didnt like it at all? It doesnt decide what it is all about.. strange.. its as if its a track that wants to start but doesnt... ´skip´ cell - its ok, some nice aspects, but the 4x4 and the speed makes me not enjoy it so much there.. phasephour - very catchy melody, well done and kinda trippy...good track.. but the melody could have repeated a bit less times.. elysium vs space cat - The parts that seem to have come from Elysium (bassline, the vocal samples, etc) are nice.. but the ´scratchy psychedelic´ sounds that seem to come from space cat really suck and make the track lose it´s magic overall... Altitude - its nice track, different.. but not so much my style... BPC - quite nice track, I liked it overall, funny and interesting.. overall: flow is not bad, but I would have preffered something more linear.. There are some strange and not good tracks, and there are some very nice tracks (entheogenic, ishq, shulman cbl rmx, bpc)... Nice compilation....
  9. I agree with you BUT, for the krueger and coyle case: Their music is very ironic and humorous, at least the way I see it... This is one of the nice things about their live, it´s kinda playfull... I thought that the ´hats are turning´ track fit well in this context, and I think it wasnt purely copying and putting a psy kick on it, but it was changed enough to make it interestnig and creative... do you disagree? I mean, Im not asking if you like the fact that they remixed the track, or if you like the original or the sample, but Im asking if you think that they just copied it and put a kick, and also if you think it was out of context in their live
  10. let me defend another criticised remix: krueger and coyle - hatz are turning (remix of beds are burning from midnight oil) its a very good track! and in the original version in the cd, there isnt any vocal sample, just the little melody, which works quite good... the vocal version they play in their lives is good anyway, works very well, like in voov 2004
  11. I dont think minilogue's remix of billie jean is very bad... its good, in a funny way (it worked in Universo Paralello on the dancefloor I tell ya)
  12. I second anthony rother Martin H 's latest cd Another Download has quite a bit of some weird electro feeling.. Check out the track 'sounds reviving', very good Mylo, for electro house stuff check out releases from Hadshot recs like 'floorfiller dirty' and the 'chosen ' series. cant remember anymore, my memory is bad now hehe... If I remember I post some other time
  13. what you said made me more excited about it Lately I've been listening quite a lot to house and electro, so from what you said I think (even if not new) I will like it
  14. I would probably (and maybe still would) make: 1- dubby chill --- e.g. ott 2- spacey atmospheric deep morning prog house/trance --- e.g. clubbervision, beckers and minilogue 3- dark evil tech house with full percussions --- e.g. some of martin h and ty tek (stuff played by dj mau mau) 4- powerful electro madness --- e.g. tiefschwarz, martin h and anthony rother I obviously wouldnt be stuck or following and coppying anybody, though.. the examples are just to show what Im interested in, but definitely all in my own style and not limited to classifications maybe Im still going to do it.. just need some spare time, better equipment and some more time to propperly learn different instruments
  15. try this track and tell me what you think: petter - these days (sasha involver mix) chilled, trippy, floating housy sounds
  16. damn curious about this one... but I dont have such high expectations as I did with antix... still, I hope its good.. I know at least emok has a damn nice taste
  17. nice track list, some a bit older, some newer... gotta check the mix latter, now im using my grandpa's computer
  18. exactly angel tears 3 and 4 (ppl say 1 is very good too, but didnt hear it yet) and kaya project - walking through
  19. I just said 2 simple ways.. but there are many more things you can ´play with´ when mixing and different ways.. but I guess this cant really be taught so much, because it depends a lot on the person playing.. you can use loops, you can play with the ´jet´ thing, you can turn that round thing in the middle (forgot the name, but it makes the speed faster or slower momentarily) etc
  20. well.. you gotta match the beats... no but really... you can use ´queue´ on the track you are going to mix, just before a beat... adjust their bpms so that they are similar (but dont change the ´key´ of the tracks or else they sound weird.. just change the speed.. on pioneer cdj´s, the button not to change the key but only the speed is ´master tempo´ I think)... then when you think that its time for you to start ´mixing´, start playing the second track just before the beat of the one that´s playing already starts, so that they both beat together... but do this with the ´channel ´ of the second track closed, so that only you on the headphones can hear it... and when you see that they are perfectly together, then start opening the channel to the speakers this is one of the ways... or you can count how many seconds it takes for the beat of one track to start, and then start playing the track when the same amount of seconds are missing for the other track to finish... but this depends on how the tracks are beginning and ending, if the intro and outro are compatible, etc... anyway, remember the queue button is always useful, remember to adjust the bpms but not change the ´keys´, and just try things out (im not an expert or real dj, and I dont know how normally people do it, but I´ve played a bit with it and got the hang somehow in my own way.. hope it helps)
  21. I was kidding.... and well, psychedelic is also not an objective term anyway.. I did try listening to droidlock.. found it too noisy and fast.. couldnt get any 'mind trips' at all, except finding it annoying, sorry... and progressive can be VERY psychedelic and not boring AT ALL imo, if you get the good ones... Antix - Forever Changing is one of the most psychedelic and interesting and visual tracks I have heard, for example but then again, as long as we know its all about taste, its good
