  1. I find this an underrated album. What I hear in Brainfood is a unique blend of the organic, cosmic sounds of old school goa with the tropes of Scando/forest psy: breakneck tempos, crazy sample work, and a focus on atonal lines, repetition and drones. It's warmer and more harmonious than fr'ex BOTFB (the closest thing I'd compare it to), with an almost New Age sweetness at times. But at the same time, it's kinda gnarly, with beats and synths that drill into my mind. IMHO, rather than sounding out of date, this is something so unique, weird and fresh that it's timeless. Best tracks: Paradize

  3. This set was recorded live at the old-school Goa revival party "Bring That Beach Back". It's composed of nearly two hours of 1983-89 techno/edm/proto goa trance. The first half is the 'sunny' mix; melodic, mostly 4/4, and clearly trancy. The midsection and second half go into dark synthpop and industrial territory a la Ministry/FLA, with a heavy dose of cold war paranoia; late night jungle freak out music. The last several tracks are melodic again, but darker, further down the psychedelic spiral; and it finishes with one of the most unique tracks you'll ever hear. I make no claims to h
  4. On Saturday, July 14th, Earwall Productions and friends are proud to present a special night of retrodelica! Goa trance has a wild and wooly history, stretching over multiple decades and incorporating many different substyles. For one evening, our DJs will take you on a whirlwind tour of its past; hearkening back to a more psychedelic time, we invoke the tribal rhythms, colorful melodies and tripped out sounds of yesteryear. Come make some new memories with us. Schedule: 7-8 PM: Groove coalescence; downtempo and ambient trance 8-10 PM Earwall (Earwall Productions) 80s G
  5. I call Goa that's aggressive but not dark "hard Goa". Like Colorbox - Train To Chroma City, or the 2nd and 3rd Space Tribe albums.
  6. Mid-late teens is the magic period for getting into this music, it seems... I was a weird kid, didn't really listen to or pay much attention to music until I was twelve or thirteen, and then it was mostly prog rock and video game soundtracks. When I was 16 I heard Juno Reactor and was instantly picked up and thrown around the room by it; it was everything I had been looking for in music, aggressive, pensive, atmospheric, melodious and most importantly, futuristic. I was already a fan of Prodigy, Shamen, Orbital ect. but this took electronic music to a completely different level. After learning

  8. Spirit Zone's old compils are great, particularly if you don't have an extensive album collection. I found a lot of great artists through the "Tathata" and "Global Psychedelic Trance" series.

  12. Robotnick is a bro! Problemes D'Amour STILL sounds fresh after nearly 30 years.
  13. I vote Peace And Freedom Party: http://www.peaceandfreedom.org/home/ Libertarian socialism is a more consistent fit with my principles than libertarian capitalism. I'd like to see the foreign occupations and drug wars of the US ended; I'd also like to see the TSA abolished and a return to dignity and respect for our health when we fly. On these issues, I agree with Ron Paul. But I'd also like to see the root causes of war addressed, along with our high rate of incarceration and our high rate of unemployment, underemployment and poverty, which we can't do by shrinking the government.
