  1. Slinky Wizard, Koxbox/Psychopod, Cosmosis, Orichalcum & The Deviant, Pigs in Space, X-Dream, Doof... Pretty much everything they've made up until 1998 is pure gold.
  2. Perhaps it was Ololiuqui - Prisma, but probably not...
  3. I've been asking myself the same question, and from what I've gathered so far, it seems that most of these artists consider their old goa work to be extremely cheesy. They probably lost interest or evolved (like any artist), or just wanted to try something new and they liked it. Maybe they are getting old and don't do drugs anymore like they probably used to, so there's less inspiration. Plus, let's face it, it's not a really big market to try and make experimental dance music, so you just stick to the formula that works and hope for the best. Also, their goa fanbase is far too small for them to care if they are 'true to the old school' when they can just make something that will certainly get them to the next festival/party.
  4. +1 Though it shares the 1st place with Forever After.
  5. Slinky Wizard - Lunar Juice (Hallucinogen Moon Strudel??? Remix) GNotR - Thunder Thighs X-Dream - Panic in Paradise Doof - Mars Needs Women Hallucinogen - Angelic Particles Hallucinogen - Thugs in Tye-Dye
  6. Eat Static - Splitting World
  7. In 1995? Or was that a joke I didn't catch?
  8. Yeah... I wonder how in the world they discovered it and thought it could be a good name for a band.
  9. Orichalcum - it's simply strange and mesmerizing Green Nuns of the Revolution - hilarious Slinky Wizard - just a fun name (Slinky Nuns is even better) Total Eclipse - well, it's just cool!
  10. Wow, now I can listen to this while going through this list, like 14 years of space pictures and ridiculous amount of information. By the way, I never knew a song can be that moving with an auto-tuned voice, using it is usually cheesy beyond measure.
  11. T2 theme together with the ending scene, and the hand, and you know... just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. Also, yeah.. Blade Runner is great, the music in 12 Monkeys is very fitting and I always had a soft spot for Halloween theme. But I have to say, nothing beats Mega Man 2 that's for sure! Rock on!
  12. Since when does that alone define goa trance ? I mean, with that rule Hallucinogen, Orichalcum, Green Nuns or even TIP aren't really goa trance either... Koxbox has as many goa trance elements as any other, but perhaps presented a bit differently (I refrain from saying 'more psychedelic'). I agree that Koxbox is in the league of their own, but they alone can't hold a genre name. What would you call it if there's nothing like it ? If it's called psytrance, then let's rename everything else that falls in there. I'd rather put it in a genre that it has most similarities with (read: sub-bass kick, funky basslines, 303, far out FX & melodies etc.), than to concern myself if it doesn't sound like Astral Projection or something. (note: I love AP as much as Koxbox)
  13. Only know this one at the moment, but I think this isn't it. Pretty pornstary, but no moaning. or this old one if you want the moaning Hole In One - X-Paradise (1992)

    District 9

    Refreshing sci-fi movie in a while I'll admit, but unfortunately the characters don't develop very much, especially the aliens. I guess what it fails the most at, is the mystery. There is none. Or rather, it's not presented well enough. 6.5/10 from me.
  15. What? Well, thanks for the insult anyway. That's pretty helpful. Could you clarify the rest? Anyway, if people like Simon Posford (Hallucinogen aka the biggest thing to happen to psytrance), Raja Ram (TIP, 1200 Mics), Ian Ion (The Overlords, Sri Hari), FrankE (Psychopod) and Peter Candy are not enough 'skilled' to know how to build up a track for your taste, then you really shouldn't bother listening or even analyzing any of their releases, since they clearly don't know how to do it, and by some strange miracle are one of the most highly praised acts in the history of psytrance.
  16. @sneila I actually think the opposite about most of the things you said about Koxbox, firstly, I find their synths and FX the most unique sounding from that era and I don't think I've ever heard those type of sounds ever since, especially with that type of production, it doesn't sound dated at all. Only comparable to the strangeness, level of detail and production are Hallucinogen, Orichalcum & The Deviant and Hux Flux that I know of. I also find Koxbox to be extremely atmospheric due to their ability of combining the right type of sounds at once and then changing them entirely into another perfectly combined bunch of sounds and melodies that are always so 'far out'. You also said "The smallest sounds added can change the entire track in a positive way." Which is exactly what I love most about Koxbox (or were you talking about Shpongle there?). Anyway... I've listened to their first 2 albums over and over for many years and those little changes and background sounds that just pop out of nowhere but still fit in into what's happening at the moment is what keeps Koxbox fresh as ever. I can totally understand and respect that your ears simply don't enjoy the Koxbox sound, it's perfectly normal, else tastes wouldn't exist. I can only suggest you that you leave the Koxbox for a month or two and then listen to it again. Don't concentrate too much on it though, just let the sounds swarm into your head by themself, just like only Insect & Insect Bite (Split Mix) can...
  17. How can you NOT like this character ? He's the greatest ever! Most memorable action movie actor of all time.
  18. Hallucinogen! ...for remixing his own track, Shamanix, and making it really cool. and Slinky Wizard - Lunar Juice (Hallucinogen Moon Strudel Mix)
