  1. Hmm - while great tracks most of them, I miss the definition of the first album here. Born Underwater was far more story-telling and coherent. On the flipside Lunar Tides is a fantastic continuation of the first albums sound and Odysseus and Fractal Octopus are both great mwnn style early 2000 tracks.

  2. This guy is pretty underrated. Lots of great melodies and atmospheres, quite psychedelic inducing too - I'm honestly surprised he isn't being released in current goatrance comps at least. Reminds me a little bit of Infinite Dimensions in many ways if anyone remembers that project. Shows you it goes a long way to release on a label when it comes to publicity.

    Joske and Mars you guys should totally listen to "Abyss" from this album.

    there have been playing sets mainly consisting of trance covers since 2008 (or so) at least when i saw them here in austria (i was actually attending only for filteria who played directly afterwards).

    Mustve been a jarring experience to go from gms to filteria :D

    Modern Psytrance tracks are mostly based on kick/bass, fxs, so it's much easier to create clean and well balanced mixes. Goa trance is mostly based on melodies and layering, thus high level of production skills is needed to create top sounding tracks. Easy as that. 

    I can't really agree with this sentiment. For example lot's of psytrance has segments that are absolutely bonkers in complexity and they still sound a helluva more vivid than goatrance.

    i.e. a part like this



  5. Well Filteria sounds on the opposite spectrum of being too tinny.

    . If you listen balance of kickbass, leads, percussion and effects you will see harmony.

    I agree with this. Though I still feel like the bass has been a little overdone - I mean I don't think it's a lot, but it's definitely too much.

    I do really like how this sound fills up the space regardless of the overdone bass (which can be compensated). Only psytrance does that sometimes with the thumping deep kicks and basslines.

    New school goa sounds like trash compared to psytrance production wise.

    I agree and I don't really understand why.


  6. It's fatiguing on the ears very much like old Filteria, though it's way more boomy. I've yet to form a proper opinion if I like it or not. On paper it's fucking cool.

    Edit: There's no question the boominess was deliberate to increase the depth in the production for that very apparent spaced out maximal sonic feeling you get when listening it, but I have to agree that thing is kind of overdone. Turning down the volume the bass becomes just too heavy. This is the first time I've actually wanted to turn down bass in EQ. Esp in track like Ring Of Fire it's a little botched. Then again this probably sounds full even on tinny soundsystems. Honestly though when paying attention (i.e. close your eyes and fly away) the sound separation is pretty good.
