The title "Furyan Sunrise" is inspired from the movie "Chronicles of Riddick", where there is this bad ass super hero "Riddick" who belongs to an almost extinct warrior race called the Furyans. The Furyans are from the Planet Furia, which was attacked and destroyed by another race called "Necromongers". In the movie, there is a sunrise on a planet called "Crematoria", which completely scorches the surface of the planet as the sunrise progresses. It is quite a sight, flames, explosions, plasma and stone melting. I think the music in this set reflects the sunrise on Crematoria, and the furious nature of the Furyans. It has to do with inner and external power, pushing everything unwanted in its path away and moving forward in a tremendous display of natural power! "Furyan Sunrise" was my second set ever targetted solely towards a dark and more aggressive sound, even though it is a couple of years old now, for me the music never faded. Good music never goes out of style. -[ Stay updated on the artists in this set below ]- Sesto Sento - http://www.myspace.com/sestosentovs Time Lock - http://www.myspace.com/timelockmusicfelix Brain Waves - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Brain+Waves Kindzadza - http://www.myspace.com/kindzadzamusic Megalopsy - http://www.myspace.com/Megalopsy Gappeq - http://www.myspace.com/gappeq Digital Talk - http://www.myspace.com/digitaltalk Triskell - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Triskell R.A.M. - http://www.discogs.com/artist/R.A.M.+(4) Twisted System - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Twisted+System+(2) Jahbo - http://www.myspace.com/jahbz Shotu - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Shotu Suddha - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Suddha Far East Ghost - http://www.fareastghost.com/index2.html Neural Rectifier Syndrome - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Neural+Rectifier+Syndrome Para Halu - http://www.myspace.com/parahalu Deviant Species - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Deviant+Species Artax - http://www.myspace.com/artaxsweden
  3. I dug out Koxbox "Forever After" not long ago, listening through all my old releases.... I was amazed how wonderful it still sounded, after so many years lying in the dark :-) - Krell
  4. And if people stop talking about them, they will be forgotten and only remembered by those special people who have not burned their brains totally with acid yet :-P I think, when stuff people write is On Topic, and it comes from the heart and need to share and debate something On Topic, they should have the option of doing so. Thats basically it. I like to see people bring it up, makes me happy to see the music I danced to and played back then is still making people shake their booties :-) Now, why dont you just find another topic to troll around in, telling people what they can and cannot do ? :-) *hugs* Your very own colleague Troll, Krell of Denmark :-) Ps: Saiko-Pod = Psychopod, but a new name because the old one was licensed to Tip Records, and could not release on another label. Saiko-Pod then become Ian Ion, but actually Koxbox "The Great Unknown", was first known to be a Saiko-Pod album... until finally the Koxbox name was made available ? From Blue Room Released I think. Psychopod = The name used on TIP Records. Dont bang me on the heads with the details, but it was something like the above I believe. Might remember it wrong, long time ago now :-)
  5. Isnt it the same thing really ? "Let it RIP" and "Psytrance is going nowhere" are Suzuki statements. "Psytrance is dead" is from another label, Nabi Records. Anyways, Suzuki earlier stated "let it RIP" as in "rest in peace" something you say when someone died. The connection should be obvious to you now. - Krell
  6. They rock, and I dont see whats wrong in bringing it up to the surface for new people to become aware of it. - Krell
  7. It certainly is not true. In 1997 Suzuki released VA "Let it RIP", pointing to letting the music (goa / psytrance) Rest In Peace. This is where his argumentation starts, now, 10 years later he repeats something along the same lines as Let it RIP. So, was psytrance "dead" as a musical genre back then ? No. Since back then, we have had several developments into new sounds, the psytrance of today is different from the psytrance of back then, since it evolved, and to evolve it needs to have been ALIVE - and also, it needs to have been moving, ergo, it is going somewhere. So, its neither dead(1997) or not moving forward(2007). Just to name a few developments I will repeat myself, Dark Psychedelic Trance, Suomi Style, Tech Trance and a shit load of cross genre work. All which are developments and proof of movement, from 1997 to 2007. He was wrong back then, and he is wrong now. Just because you have a strong opinion and your famous, doesnt mean that you are right. These are the facts, and they prove that I am right and you are wrong. I can say this with confidence, since this is really as simple as I put it. When something is dead, it does not live, when something is not moving forward it does not change. Psytrance did all of those things, so, there must be a fault in the argument "let it rip" "psytrance is going nowhere" or the copy cat version "psytrance is dead"... To all of those you might add "for me" or "to me" at the end, then the argument would become true, but not before. Only question that remains is, are you too stubborn to acknowledge the truth when it is presented to you... Perhaps you are, like him, too mesmerized by your own opinion for you to be able to take the facts into consideration. - Krell
  8. I wonder why they chose to feature him on this release... What is the intention behind it ? Making money ? Poor investment, especially since Im sure 90% of todays psy community never heard of Suzuki or Prana, or Matsuri Productions for that matter. It is clear, that Mr Suzuki holds opinions in regards to "psytrance", then again, he was trying to sell the same message 10 years ago now... Since then, we had an explosion of Psychedelic Chillout, Dark Psychedelic Trance, Cross genre House&Deep Trance with Psychedelic, Suomi Style and other subgenres. So, I wonder if he really noticed those developments, keeping his head in the ground, coming out with this opinionated statement ? I mean, I dont really see much new in his tracklist no.... so I wonder, is he aware of the developments at all ? Seems like he is mostly focussed on getting his own, 10 year old, message out once more... Which is sad, since when you are offered a chance to compile and mix a set for release, you owe the people employing you and the people buying it to honor the idea and to do an honest days work and put together something professional. This being said, I dont know the details of this release, wouldnt bother listening to it either. More than 10 years ago, Suzuki was one of the Djs I very much respected, and to some extent, I still do - For what he was. However, I think this is in the past, while I dont disrespect him as a person now, I in no way consider him a good psytrance dj, or really, even a psytrance dj. This I trust, is no problem for him, and I would not wish for it to be so either. However, I think its a sad waste of resources to release something half baked, only to get a message out which is so outdated, and simply not true. Sad those resources didnt go to a freelance dj, or whomever most qualified.... and not some psychedelic relick from the past. Psytrance is going somewhere, to hell maybe ? Doesnt matter if you dont like where it is going really, but it IS changing and moving forward - slowly but surely. - Krell
  9. I normally dont post my complete reviews in english, this time I make an exception however, to give labels an impression of what my reviews are like. They are written for another site, electrobeat.dk, which focusses on electronic music in general, but which has mostly trance users. There are more newbies to the music on our site, therefore the focus is on the whole of the release, instead of a track by track walkthrough. --- Sound Field – Audio Surfin’ (Oxygen Records, 2007) Andy Yakovlev(Prosect, Sonify & ICO) teams up with Liron Atia to create the Sound Field project, whose debut album we review in this article. The album also offers a collaboration track with danish Lars Knudsen, the genre is Progressive Psychedelic Trance. Tracklist OXYCD006 01. Sound Field “Psychedelic Revival” (9:41) 02. Sound Field “Technological Terror” (8:57) 03. Sound Field “Midi Tales” (8:20) 04. Sound Field “Return To The Field” (6:55) 05. Sound Field “CrossBreed” (9:28) 06. Sound Field “Dub Vibration” (8:11) 07. Sound Field “Funk Science (Southern Mix)” (9:00) 08. Sound Field “Second Step Above The Sun” (10:36) 09. Sound Field & Lars Knudsen “Lifted Higher” (8:09) Sound Field is made up of 2 israliens who go by the names of Andy Yakovlev and Liron Atia, in 2003 they chose to create a new musical project together (Sound Field) which was to unite Andy’s melodic sounds, grooves and structuring with Liron’s flair for progressive and softer sounds for the morning hour dance floors. Furthermore Sound Field is about having fun thru the development of fresh music, the project name itself in its own way symbolizes the freedom to create anything within the field of sound. The title of the album ”Audio Surfin’” is connected with Liron’ s love for the sea, a love he has enjoyed surfing the waves earlier in his life. Unfortunately Liron is today confined to a wheel chair due to an accident. Therefore, the title is also dedicated to him personally. The cover art is symbolic for the colors of sound the album explores. The album offers several facets of electronic music who all seem to integrate into the general course of the album following the softer psychedelic sounds. Genres are eagerly crossed, for this reason the tracks on the album are quite diverse from each other. This diversity offers the listener funky melodies, dub & reggae sections, electro grooves, technoish repetitions, classic 303 build ups and old school goa moods, all whom are integrated into the general trend towards the softer progressive psychedelic trance style which has been so popular during the last years. In its search for new sounds I think Sound Field has succeeded in producing a very good result, a result which quality is apparent in the diversity present on this album. In regards to flow the album works well, since I definitely feel a connection between the different variations of the tracks. That being said I dont want to promote Sound Fields album as something ground breaking new in its genre either, since other artists are also able to produce the same level of diversity and flow. Instead, I want to say that it is a good album and a text book example of how an album can be turned into an interesting and versatile experience for the listener instead of it just being a collection of tracks of the same sound with no real progression from start to finish. Something I miss with the Sound Field album is one or more tracks who seek to increase the tempo and energy level somewhat over the other progressive tracks. This could have added a bit of extra contrast to the album, something that would have made a positive difference for me. I have set this album at a rating 4/5, for its variation, quality, story and all the other positive things I mention in this review. There is still something missing musically before a rating of 5/5 is a possibility for me, at least a couple of the tracks didn’t really catch me to take me on their journey or were simply not melodicly compatible with me. I look very much forward to listening to more releases from Andy Yakovlev, I dont know if Liron Atai will be able to produce again after his accident. For now, the project is being continued by Andy. If you are into Progressive, whether it be of the House, Psychedelic or Deep Trance variety I can recommend you this album with a good conscience. The same can be said if you love a funky sound woven into softer progressive psytrance.

  10. Heres a watery track Element "From the Rain" Nice detail, for me about this track, I once used it on a prerecorded set me and some of my friends where listening to at this really nice cottage my ex girlfriends father had. The cottage was overlooking the most beautiful lake in Denmark, with forests all around us, and was situated on the side of a hill.... So, all in all, a marvelous place for tripping, listening to music, with natures beauty right next to you as well as the comforts of modern civilization such as high quality hifi, a roof, terasse at tree top level... So, once that track began, it also started raining slightly outside, in the morning :-) Heres a picture from the terasse view, with the rainbow in the background :-) - Krell

  12. Doesnt anyone else have something to say about this fascinating topic ? WHATS WRONG WITH PSY TODAY !? ??!?! - Krell
  13. We just need a proper test some day. I wanted to do one at one of our parties, but when the time comes everybody is stressing to make sure everything is perfect for the guests. Hopefully some day we can make a credible article on this subject. - Krell
  14. A statement which is TOTALLY illogical, since just about ALL big sound systems are inferior to home hifi setups or headphones. They often dont go deeper than 40Hz - 50Hz nor higher than 16KHz. Could it be, that it is actually not because its MP3s being played but something else ? Perhaps you just hear a bad sound and conclude "Oh, that must be Mp3" ? Or perhaps, if you know a DJ just spins MP3s, it is not a professional DJ who knows how to use the mixer properly (over gaining or eqing the tracks). I for one am able to tell a bad mastering from a good one easily on CD, something I can also do over a PA. Why cant I tell an MP3 from a CD then ? We have 20-40kW sound setups at our parties, and have never had bad sound due to an MP3 being played, at least as not as I nor the other people noticed. Instead other factors touch the sound quality, over gaining tracks or pushing mixers beyond their dynamic range for instance, bad mastering and stuff like that. - Krell
