    Good music in general, Oldskool Goa Trance in particular. Also philosophy, psychology, sociology, physics, chocolate, wine.
  1. Finnish freeform should be your salvation. For example... I really recommend getting all of VA - Hakkapeliitta. Will list some more tracks when I have time to dig.
  2. Full list of bass music I like = http://www.karangill.com/drumtastic--bassalicious-music.html
  3. Yeah I agree. What you said makes sense. I feel a remix is rather like EDM's version of 'perform'. The re-interpretation. If you think of every EDM track embodying an idea or a certain mood, then the way the original composer writes the track is his way of conveying that. And a remix is another person's re-interpretation of that conveyance and how they see fit to convey that idea/mood. I don't know if this makes sense though? And when a DJ mixes in two tracks, it's is the DJ's performance of the music and of how that DJ wants to convey the idea/mood. So I think of DJs & remixes as representing the perform side of things, DJs more so ofcourse.
  4. Always come up against this when I talk about how amazing EDM is Personally music is made by the effect it has on you. That is what makes music, period. It's about emotion and beauty. As long as it holds something for you, it is a piece of art. The process of creating that music only comes in if it contributes to the art-ness of the piece. I don't think making EDM is that easy, it takes some understanding of the actually frequencies of different instruments, understanding of synths etc... , of the buildup and release of tension, of flow ... Besides I feel the whole point of technology is to empower. So we _should_ use technology to allow us to put our energy into the act of creation instead of spending it on perfecting an instrument. Another interesting point people miss is that with traditional instruments one person can only play one instrument, but with EDM one person has to understand and put together every single instrument in the track.
  5. Why do you say that socialism works only if people are perfect?
  6. Made some tracks and I'm wondering if they're any good at all. If anyone has the time to give me any sort of feedback that would be great! Drum & Bass + Orchestral elements. Always wanted to push try and push D&B a bit. http://soundcloud.co...129/karan-slice Psytrance http://soundcloud.co...an-free-radical Experimental-ish Dubstep. The second half builds quite nicely if I may say so. http://soundcloud.co...ran-acid-retort Intelligent Dubstep. Kinda spaced out. http://soundcloud.co...29/other-worlds Hope it's okay to put it here instead of Music Promotion. I just want feedback, not promoting this or anything.

  8. Haha didn't see that. That definitely puts any lingering doubts to rest.
  9. I don't know what Ron Paul's policies are specifically but I know he's a libertarian and I don't think you can build a society on non-intervention, so if I were American, I won't be a Ron Paul supporter. Also, I always thought psyheads would be more inclined toward social democracy than libertarianism. No?
  10. Here's my list... http://www.listology.com/karan129/story/best-goa-trance-top-artists-albums-and-tracks
  11. Hahaha it's so obvious he had speakers that underemphasized the highs and the volume was maxed out on a bunch of channels and the compressor was used to try and fix that Personally, the best goa trance cannot just have great melodies + production, it has to _embody_ goa trance, capture the essence of it so to speak, such that when you listen to it you begin to understand what the genre is about.
  12. Oh so it's personal now huh?

    First post wins

    "I win because I set the rules" Very smart.
  14. Now there are an even number of posts = no middle = no one wins. Sorry.
  15. I think what AlieNed means by 'strange' is that it isn't all that psychedelic, that perhaps it's evolved too far to be considered psy in character.
