  1. Listen to my Spotify playlist dedicated to Mindsphere (see above), it's a careful selection of his best tracks. Your mind will be blown again.
  2. Mindsphere is the best thing that has happened to this scene in a long, long time. The quality of his music is up there with the old masters. I just discovered his unreleased (!) tune Gate of Sadness, what a masterpiece! It kind of reminds me of The Muses Rapt's Spiritual Healing, but a lot better and even more powerful. Listen to his live set from 2016, you'll find Gate of Sadness at around 1:31:40. Prepare to be blown away: To experience Mindsphere live is officially on my bucket list. I've compiled a Spotify playlist with his most powerful tunes, enjoy!
  3. I experienced GMS last night at Scandinavia Electronic Festival. I feel I need to write a few lines. I don't know if it was a dj set with their own music or a standard dj set, but it doesn't really matter, this is about the result. Riktam more or less only played remixes, or covers of other tracks. It was so bad. A new song starts with a well known signature part, and it gradually builds and then everything goes silent and then the generic progressive baseline hits. Over and over again. Every track. He played two Prodigy covers... It was so generic I left for the second dance floor. I didn't have any special expectations, but this was bad. 1200 mics was equally uninspiring. The kids seemed to love it. I guess I'm getting old. GMS = Generic Music Scientists Besides that, the Scandinavia Electronic Festival was a fun experience.
  4. Remixes by Youth, The Delta, The Irresistible Force, Bluetech, Ajja and many more. https://liquidsounddesignuk.bandcamp.com/album/saafi-brothers-mystic-cigarettes-special-mixes-of-classic-flavours-20-track-digital-bundle The 20 min sampler sounds excellent!
  5. Wow!

  6. Great recommendations! I knew many, but found some new gems. Here are my recommendations: Dargoa's mixes are in a league of their own. Excellent track selection, perfect mix of old and new and the flow is just amazing. For high energy lovers. https://www.mixcloud.com/Dargoa/dargoa-mix-2011-07-20/favorites/ There are many more by Dargoa. DERELICT SPACE BEACON - LSD25 visible sound recordings Project 2501 - Coexist GhostOnAcid - Smiley Faces Of The BigBang Jens M - Hail the Fluffies (excellent summary of the 1998 era) Lumo - Nirbubg Mad Wax - Seventh Day Paradise_FM-1997-09-14-Nick_Taylor_and_Andrew_Till_Psyharmonics-EVO068AB (Mindblowing!) https://www.facebook.com/psyharmonics/posts/an-old-gem-of-a-recording-from-nick-taylor-andrew-till-recorded-and-aired-on-ger/10151591216922072/ Dj Searcher - Neurotrance Tsuyoshi Suzuki - Live @ JJJ Mixup, Australia - 2000-01-22 (Tsuyoshi at his absolute best!) Oh, and my very own eclectic ambient mix:
  7. Wow, just wow! I've been listening to these three (!) albums in a row nonstop since yesterday. The melodies! The samples! The various styles! The flow! Love it! What a journey! This is something beyond the ordinary. He's constantly shifting between styles and the flow is just excellent. This is the best new act I've heard since Psykovsky entered the scene, and don't get me wrong, their styles are not related, besides them being very psychedelic and with tons of shifts and turns. Do yourself a favour and listen to these albums properly, don't just click through the tunes, really listen to them, or you won't get it. I clicked through the first two albums and didn't hear anything out of the ordinary. Yesterday I listened to the first tune of the third disc, and couldn't stop listening, and it just got better and better, and I proceeded listening to the rest of the albums. Really excellent stuff. Mandragora is a new psy maestro!
  8. He died in a drowning accident, and "passed away at his house by the lake where he lived, worked & loved", according to his Facebook page, very sad. He had seven children and no life insurance (!), so please consider donating some money to this official fund raiser: https://www.gofundme.com/support-the-kids-of-dennis-hux-flux
  9. I've found lots of great trance sets in the DJ Mixes section, but I've been disappointed with the downtempo sets more often then not, so I've stopped downloading them. But I'm sure I've missed some great sets. Please post your favorite downtempo and ambient mixes. Here's an ambient mix of mine that I often listen to when I'm reading:
  10. A beatiful preview of the upcoming album: https://www.facebook.com/astralprojectionofficial/videos/10156010661853185/ Swedish promoter Technostate just announced that they will host the Astral Projection album release party in a couple of months!! It's happening!
  11. The "old gods" had lots of talent. Back then music was made with hardware, which was expensive. So to actually make a basic track you would need to buy hardware for several thousand euros. If you were prepaired to make that investment you probably already had some talent. Today, the cost of making a track is the cost of a computer. The results, anyone can make music, and that doesn't lead to quality, it's leads to quantity. I realise now, that the cost of equipment probably hade another consequence: many acts were two or more members. Pleiadians/Etnica, X-dream, Total Eclipse, Slinky Wizard, Juno Reactor, Koxbox, Quirk, Technossomy, UX. Why could this be relevant? Because more members lead to more influences and more ideas. I can think of a handful of neo goa acts that consist of two or more members, There were a lot of creativity and as psytrance spread over the world, people added their ideas to the music, and the music kept evolving. Suntrip has been releasing neo goa for 13 years now, and in my opinion, the sound hasn't changed that much during that period. I'm sure others will disagree. The production quality has however increased, but that sound is more or less the same. In short, the "old gods" get worshipped because neo goa is a modern take on that old sound. I have a public Spotify playlist with what I consider to be the best melodic sunshine neo goa tracks, and even though I've scanned 13 years of neo goa tracks I haven't found more than 20 great tracks. I do realise that some great tracks are missing on Spotify. Feel free to follow that playlist if you want to know what tracks an old timer enjoys. I often listen to that playlist when I'm running.
  12. Excellent album, well worth the wait! A bit airier then It's Tomorrow Already, but in the same vain as ITA. Beautiful music! My favorites at the moment: Call It Music, Magic Acid and Space Elevator
  13. Sebastian Mullaert is one of my favorite artists out there and certainly one of the most talented in the entire electronic music scene. Few artist's music has the width and quality that his music has. I'm sure you all know that he and Marcus Henriksson are no longer working together as Minilogue. These days they focus on their respective solo projects. I have a tracklist on Spotify where I collect all of Sebastians best tracks, and it's getting longer and longer for every release. If you want to follow the playlist here's the link: https://open.spotify.com/user/supermindway/playlist/0Dx4W2buK5ZxkECZ9f2syP If you haven't kept up with Sebastian's work you'll find that his music is getting deeper and deeper.
  14. The haunting melody that starts to build up around 6 minutes, one of the best moments of the old school: Athena (Miranda) - Croctopus
