  1. IC 1848 and IC 1805 are two nebulae shown above that are commonly referred to as Heart and Soul Nebula (heart: right, soul: left). Originally I was considering naming this mix after a supernova, but rather than focusing on star death I changed the theme to star birth. In an astronomical sense, a starburst galaxy refers to a galaxy that is undergoing a process of an incredibly high rate of star formation. The Heart and Soul Nebulae contain large cavities that were carved out by radiation and winds from the region's most massive stars, giving them triggered star formation. The carving out of these cavities pushes gas together, causing it to ignite into successive generations of new stars. This system can be viewed almost as a star nursery, where the clouds of gas and dust are undergoing intense nuclear fusion and creating brand new star clusters. The tracklist is probably fairly obvious to most of you, especially those of you who have heard me on TA Radio. This mix features a whole arsenal of colossal progressive psytrance blasters. I'd like to thank Dr. Mundus, Atmospheric Energy, and PsyScape for exposing me to these awesome tunes.

  2. Hey man, I listened to the first one. Killer set. I've heard good techfunk/psybreak sets before, and this ranks up there. Check out my buddy Dave King, he spins a similar sound. http://soundcloud.com/djdavek/dave-king-entropy-13-04-2012 http://www.tranceaddict.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=614038
  3. What in the fuck is all that HTML rubbish? Are you alright, mate?
  4. Oh, I know. Perhaps the smiley face at the end threw me off lol. Pure psytrance from that era of music is relatively rare, especially the good tracks.
  5. Forgive me for disagreeing, but I would consider those two tracks to be closer to psytrance than goa. Considering you know so much about classic goa, it surprises me that the fact that I included those tracks bothers you, since a majority of all 'psytrance' tracks from that time period have significant goa influences. Finding tracks that abandon all the rules that goa trance sets was very difficult, so having tracks that may identify with goa shouldn't be an issue. Thanks for listening.
  6. Dude, this was so cool. Brilliantly executed, the narration sequences were well-timed and very interesting. One thing I'm not certain of is why you decided to include the tag "Electro" in the mix? To me there is no electro here, bar a very light hint in a few tracks. Everything is like you said, swingy, touch of prog/glitch/minimal. Highly interesting mix. If I had to give you advice, it would be to post more mixes, and post them in the DJ Promotion forum here. Also, please post a tracklist. Thanks for the music!
  7. It's always nice to explore the history of a certain sound. A lot of classic tracks from the mid to late 90's are mainly goa, or goa-influenced psytrance. A lot of times I'll listen to classics sets and be bored to tears with the lack of variety in some tracks. In this mix, I play a collection of weird music from early psytrance artists that broke the mold and pushed forward a style that was just a little different than everything around them. Note: A couple of the transitions are not so great, but it shouldn't detract hopefully. Also, if anyone is concerned about the Infected Mushroom track, think back and remember how boss Classical Mushroom was. Yeah, that's right.

  8. Necromancy (/ˈnɛkrɵˌmænsi/) is a claimed form of magic involving communication with the deceased – either by summoning their spirit as an apparition or raising them bodily – for the purpose of divination, imparting the means to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge. The term may sometimes be used in a more general sense to refer to black magic or witchcraft. Hopefully some of my regular listeners will have noticed that I have been going back over some older mix ideas and improving them. I have done a death metal + psytrance mix in the past, but this time I added the extra depth and darkness that the previous mix was lacking. I love making these mixes, they are so much fun.

  9. Now THAT'S a unique psy track. I'm seeing a lot of recommendations that are more on the goa-side. I suppose that's not too surprising since goa was more prevalent than psy around that time. More psy-oriented tracks, please!
  10. Killer tracks. They are both awesome but I prefer the ECT one. Wowzers.
  11. I'm not talking the BEST oldschool psy track, I'm talking the one you heard once and never heard anything like it ever again. For me that honor would have to go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCZupCtCMZ8 Only the coolest, most interesting tracks you know of!
  12. I just made a new psystep mix the other day. In my opinion, this sound is the true epitome of psytrance+dubstep. http://www.psynews.org/forums/index.php?/topic/63116-ziptnf-heavy-gravity-psystep/
  13. The fusion of psytrance and dubstep is a very rare thing indeed, and it is even more rare to find high quality, proper sounding tracks. In contrast to my last psystep mix: http://www.psynews.o...psybreaks/, this one doesn't have such a goofy vibe, and I actually blend the tracks. It starts very tame; accessible to anyone who likes classic atmospheric dubstep. As the mix evolves, you will experience a deeper, more sinister trip. I'm super proud of this one.

  14. A lot of people diss psytrance. I don't blame them, especially since the genre "full-on" has tainted the scene with an ocean of watered-down tracks, cookie-cutter basslines, boring melodies, and riffs with no energy. I thought I had divorced full-on, but I found my love again and dug as deep as I could for this mix. I've never played a mix with this much power behind it. When I finished spinning, I felt like my brain had exploded. This is my ultimate full-on mix, at the absolute maximum level of energy possible. I hope some of you are feeling brave.

  16. Trance will never die when producers are cranking out such magical tunes. These tracks are all fairly recent. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.

  17. We all know that most producers/DJ's in the psytrance scene are on facebook pages and have twitter accounts. Let's post some, shall we?

  18. Goa? I find that genre makes no difference if a melody resounds in your heart.
  19. Awesome, dude. I appreciate the listens. I'm listening to your Collosus teaser right now. You don't even understand how pumped I am for this release.
  20. Life is indeed like that. I actually appreciated the idea of mood swings in this set more after I thought about it than my first impression. Emotional rollercoasters can be detrimental to the human psyche but it worked so very well here. There might be a slice of negativity in there but it was counterbalanced by something much more positive. I really liked it, mate.
  21. Why don't you just post the PDF here?
  22. Nice job, mate. Listened to this while doing yoga. I must say the flow was a bit all over the place and that affected the mood of the set. Sometimes I was in a state of total relaxation, sometimes I was anxious or upset, and sometimes I couldn't possibly have been happier. Made for a unique experience. Thanks, buddy.
  23. Thanks for listening, mate, I'm a huge fan! I'll check out your set when I get a chance. Just out of curiosity, which mixes of mine have you listened to? I've listened to all your production works, but none of your DJ sets, so I'll jump on that ASAP.
  24. I understand your interpretation of trance, but the sound was not at all similar to the other examples in the thread. I created a mix to show off these gems. Click my signature. While you're in the DJ promo section, check out Procyon's mix as well, that mix is awesome.
