  1. Hello there, I just bumped on your myspace a few minutes ago and started listening to "The Bathysphere" and "Inside the Tree" once again, after all this time. Those tracks still give me the chills, so as i remembered posting here a while back.. i wanted to know what's up on your side? Anything cool you're working on? Give your fans some news dammit! Cheers
  2. Thanks for the gift mars and Jannis! I was dying to hear those remixes eventually.. just bought it and downloading right now By the way Jannis as you're reading this thread, may i ask if you ever finished the track called "Those Talking Machines" (i think it was its name) ? I remember listening to the sample on your website quite a lot when it was up (like 2 years ago) and loving the "ghost/haunting" atmosphere. I've been waiting to see it appears on a VA ever since, but i'm getting impatient now Same thing for the lower pitched version of Back To Earth, it was sounding very good.
  3. It's true that sometimes long tracks can sound repetitive, but i think it's done on purpose in order to create a mood/atmosphere and not by lack of originality (though that might be true in many cases). You know how sometimes it seems to sound the same for 10+ min (just 1 melody), but you're getting totally lost in the music and those 10+ min felt really shorter. I also find it hard to really get into a 4-5 mins track, and always regret that they aren't build up properly with more time spent on the atmosphere, on the structure, on playing with the melody(ies), etc. So while i agree
  4. That's one constructive post FTP. Always easy to critize and spit on, less so to do it in an intelligent manner with some propositions to improve things. I guess that is just a perfect exemple of what i describe in my first post
  5. I would guess most DJs don't even know/like the 90s sound. They might know the great classics (Mahadeva, LSD, etc), but their "psytrance culture" is based on the 2k+ sound and that's all they will play. When they speak about oldschool, they usually mean tracks that were made at the begining of the "new era".
  6. I love Paradise Connection, One love and Stardriver, but i'm not a big fan of what he has done after that (especially now). I've seen him live at Ozora this year, and have been very disapointed. It was more of a rock concert (over 1/2 of the tracks were played with live guitars) than anything. Very far from what you could expect to hear at a psychedelic trance gathering. Guitars, cheese, ppl claping their hands.. i have nothing against all those things, but i hated his liveset.
  7. I want to hear good music. I don't care whether it's old or not, and if the production is good or not. V.T.O.L. SQ is awful, but if a DJ spins it i'm going to lick his toes right after his set. That goes for dozens of oldschool classics.
  8. Oh yeah, i agree with that. Same people, different education/environement, but same kind of ignorance at the end (note: this isn't an insult, i consider myself at least partly ignorant as well). It only got on my nerves because on one side the trance crowd is supposed to be very open minded, tolerant, etc, yet those same trancers (or maybe are they just trolls and the real trancers are more interesting than that, i wouldn't know) saying PLUR all the time are judging/criticizing/insulting anyone who doesn't share their view on the world, which are usually people living in "rich" countries.
  9. I don't think i would be any different if i never stumbled upon psytrance. I'm just interested in the genre (well, a part of it anyway) for what it is (music), but everything that is around it doesn't interest me that much. I mean.. i didn't wait to listen to psytrance to know that life isn't fair, that the system we live in isn't perfect, that we have ecological and social issues, that peace is better than war and not polluting better than polluting, etc. All those matters aren't unique to the psytrance culture, and i'm not too much into the whole "let's criticize, judge, and insult wes

  11. Sorry, never heard them before. I only know the third track, so in case i don't know how to count and you meant this one.. it's If that's not the one then i have no idea.

    Pleiadians - IFO

    I also find that Maia and Alcyone are the 2 best tracks on this album (read: the 2 i liked the most) and 2 of the very best tracks this genre has to offer imo. Infectious melodies, intensity, story telling, unique Pleiadians trademark, i didn't find anything else close to those 2 masterpieces. The other tracks are good as well i suppose, but they don't touch me so i won't comment. In any case this album is definitly a must to listen, you can also get the wavs from juno if you're interested.
  13. Hmm, i'm interested into normal trance since i'm a melody lover, but i know almost nothing about it. From when did they start calling stuff like Tiesto trance? One of the main reason i've yet to explore trance is because i know i'll find a lot of Tiesto-like clubby music, which doesn't suit me at all. Any artist you could recommend me that would sound like L.S.G. - Lonely Casseopeya ? I've also heard the last track (i think) from Union Jack, called "Papillon". Not sure if that's called trance or acid trance, but i digged it (aside of the french sample, sounds stupid.. at least
