  1. You didn't. Anyway it's still quite enjoyable: https://youtube.com/watch?v=iZEH8xeGtBY Have fun fellaz
  2. Thanks for mentioning Ovnimoon, I only know it from the Young Man on Acid compilation. Yeah sure the hippie tag is kind of a subjective thing. I like the tribal element of the album, it's a nice surprise in a way.
  3. It's my 1st review here, sorry for the failure to do a proper review. Anyway I'm curious what you guys, especially genre fetishists are having to comment on this. To give you an idea about my motivation to post this review: I was really into what people call 'zenonesque', between 2004 and 2015 this was in my opinion a truly creative and unique genre, it was the true hippie stuff in my opinion. For some reason I feel like there was a cut of some sort, I don't see the true hippie stuff within this subgenre anymore. Youtube recommended this album for some reason, I listened to it and thought it's a very pleasant journey. I wouldn't say this is the one and only true hippie stuff, but it's hippie stuff. It's less dark and maybe a little less psychedelic than typical zenonesque but certainly more creative than usual European progressive. Generally feel free to let us know: Where is, in your opinion, the true hippie stuff within new psychedelic trance music?
  4. Since people dream of vaccinations these days: Gruß ✡︎
  5. Old is gold, that's also true for Zenon Records. In my opinion this is probably the most underrated album in psytrance history. It certainly is very jazzy/funky. I love it!
  6. I loved GTA Vice City as I loved GTA III, San Andreas and the 'stories' add ons, played them all very much. Of course GTA IV and V are better games technically but there is less fun in them in my opinion. It's all so serious and in GTA V you even had to torture a guy for the story to move on. WTF?! Also what I really miss is WWII shooters with some atmosphere like Medal Of Honor Allied Assault. Yes, Call Of Duty (WWII parts) were entertaining as well but MOHAA had such a great movie feeling with all these 'behind enemy lines' missions plus the excellent score. Epic stuff indeed.
  7. This is very good goa trance and regarding the era it's 'newschool'. It's dirty, i mean really dirty. It's funky as hell and it's willful in a positive way. Producers should be inspired by this track.
  8. I didn't say that Zenon Records is dead, I said that 'zenonesque' seems quite dead to me. I could be wrong about that and I could be just too lazy to dig deeper. Anyway, looks like this topic becomes a promotion for Zenon Records. It's ok though since I was asking for opinions. The difference is just that around the year 2010 it was quite a rare style while today there are many labels releasing that style. Still interesting labels for my taste are http://arkhivemusic.com and https://universaltriberecords.bandcamp.com and WOW: Just found an interesting website about this: https://psygressivearea.com <3
  9. I remember the year 2010. Merkaba released an album and so did Tetrameth and Minimal Criminal. All of them were and still are excellent albums. Seriously, how great was that particular style people started calling 'zenonesque' at some point. Between 2006 and 2014 there was a really creative output within this style of psytrance. The music was dark without being negative and/or aggressive and it was very creative, funky and yes: Psychedelic. Today 'zenonesque' seems quite dead, right? Ok, Zenon Records is still around but they changed their direction to a more technoish style. Cosmic Conspiracy Records didn't realease anything in a long time and even the latest Merkaba album and new tracks from other talented artists don't really do the trick anymore. Technically perfect music but with a lack of heart and true inspiration in my opinion. ^ great piece of music from 2006 ^ So, what style of today's psytrance offers a ~135-ish~ BPM plus creative ideas and a positive and progressive sound design? Any suggestions? Comments?
  10. Ok, back on the actual topic: An example: Psychaos' track 'Intellect'. It's not even an outstanding track, just a good one. It has a certain level of funk though, it's funky and it just rocks, doesn't sound overproduced. I know maybe 10-12 tracks from the 'newschool era' that deliver that level of quality. That's not much is it? That's why the pioneers (not gods!) of Goa Trance get that much respect while newcomers don't get that much of it.
  11. Not saying I hate them but yeah, quite annoying.
  12. 'Koss The Plug' are quite cheap and they do the job very well if handled properly.
  13. Interesting. Thank you for the info. Everybody: Save your DJ sets properly. No, not later. Now!
  14. There's not really a question in my above post, anyway might be interesting what people say about this as I'm not a computer geek so thanks and there you go:
  15. Thanks to marsh it's back online and downloadable. Oh and it seems there's finally a proper alternative to soundcloud: https://www.audiomack.com/song/ake-9/triggering-psychic-awareness-mixed-by-ake
  16. Hey guys I once uploaded a DJ set to Youtube and used an MP3 320 kbps (LAME) file that was converted from the original WAV file to create the MP4 file for the upload, needless to say that i only used proper lossless files for the DJ set. Unfortunately i lost both, the MP3 and the WAV file of the DJ set. So i was hoping to be able to get at least the 'original upload audio quality' by using the premium version of 'Youtube to MP3 Converter', spent $9 for this. Anyway, windows and dbPoweramp tell me the audio quality is low, 95 kbps. Crap! So it seems to me that people listening to music on Youtube get very low MP3 quality all the time. Just letting you know. Correct me if i'm wrong about this. Cheers
  17. To be honest I don't know any album from the Goa or even Psychedelic Trance genre that i ever listened from start to finish. There are great albums like Alien Protein of course but even this one has a non trance track on it so i always skip it. Alien Protein is a great album and so is Language Of Light by Merkaba but for me Trance music always is about great tracks, not great albums.

    USA

    What I love about the USA is the fact that people believe in themselves at first. After that they believe in their country or they do not believe in their country, whatever. In Germany and Austria as well people believe in their country at first, not necessarily like patriots but they just believe in the state, they do as they are told. In the US people cross the streets as they see fit. In Germany and Austria people cross the street when some sign tells them to do so. That being said I strongly believe we as humans need an officially elected world government yesterday or at least today. We need that as soon as possible. You can just forget about the Bilderberg meetings, the CFR, Trilateral Commission, etc. If those guys were as clever and dangerous as conspiracy theorists believe, we would actually have an officially elected world government by now. So as long as there is no officially elected world government, my non biological 12 year old sister from Austria is the world government and I am her consigliere. Any complaints? No? Fine, go on!
  19. Thinking about Pete 'Tetrameth' Hayes ~ Quite a lot of 'lyrics' in there anyway truly unique sound. Hey Pete: I've been thinking about you ~
  20. Agree with northern Germany for this one, disagree with year 2000. Could be something from https://www.discogs.com/label/33676-Plastic-Loop-Recordings or maybe some track on this one: https://www.discogs.com/Various-Cosmic-Flight-Germanys-Psychedelic-Trance-Vol-1/release/137107
  21. The 'problem' here seems to be the extra-fancy ALAC format. Of course Apple had to create their own thing instead of going with FLAC. I suggest you ask for advice on some audio forum what to do exactly. Anyway it won't be that tricky i guess. On windows you can simply use foobar plus add-ons for the job and there's probably a suitable software for Mac as well.
