  1. Yes. This is IMHO also the reason why new styles and hypes are "born" every few years. Trance and psy and all that is a music that needs to evolve and evolve and it can't stay the same, because after a certain period of time the things get boring because the music is in itself a more or less simple conglomerate of sounds and basslines and one day you simply have enough of "always the same shit". I'm with delars concerning prog and scando forecasts. Except that some prog will merge more and more into house directions (listen to Vision & Canedy - Privileged, then you know what I mean) ... in fact it has merged quite a bit already ... Acan for example, a resident DJ on the vienna Suntribe psy gatherings is more and more spinning in "ordinary" house clubs ... and the whole suntribe psy style is moving more to prog/house, contrary of fullon if you know what I mean. Bleh, I can't project local developments in my town on the whole globe, but still, you know... And yeah, Astrix, Skazi, Yahel and IM will soon scratch the popular surface and will become "stars" (if you know what I mean) and their music will storm the charts and clubs and in the end we'll have a bunch of brainamputated idiots in our clubs jacking off to sk4zi and all those killargh clones and we won't go out much anymore......... lol, hope it won't be like that
  2. Okay, now I got curious and checked the samples. It's definitely not something I would like to listen to often. But sometimes maybe ... when I'm in this special mood. It's not that messed up as it sounds. Unikos has put it well: If you want something really fucked up, then check out noise ... Brighter Death Now for example ...
  3. I don't know "Backlash" ... but I was going to recommend Frontline Assembly. Check out more of them You could also check out Front 242 ... especially Front 242 - Headhunter 2000 (Frontline Assembly Remix), I think that's a fucking great track (brought me to Frontline Assembly (and the whole style at all)). Maybe Project Pitchfork could also be something for you ... but I don't know much of them, that's definitely not one of the main recommendations I would give... Hope you find what you're searching for
  4. S-RANGE : ANOTHER THEORY When will those fuckers release it at last... ARRRG...
  5. Hm well ... I guess I had pre-listened those earplugs you talk about at a friend once ... and yes, they were the only ones that didn't fall out It's good that I now know the model number, but ... hehe, it's too late. I already bought headphones. And for those who want to know which ones: it's neither the philips hp460 nor the neckband ones ... the philips weren't avaliable and the neckband ones I didn't want. I got totally different ones: the Sony MDR-V150. Some people might also know the MDR-300 ones, the 150 ones are exactly the same except that they are not foldable and that the colour is black. I didn't buy the foldable ones as I break them anyway (I know me ) and because the 150 ones were just 25 Euros (30 Euros cheaper than the 300 and they have the same sound ... this world is fucked up). Yeah and I can say so far that I'm really satisfied with them. The sound is incredibly good, even better than on my previous philips hp550 ... sometimes I even hear more synths in a track than before which makes everything a whole new listening experience! And the bass is really nice too (not phat, but nice!) as the speakers are placed closer to the ears than it's the case with the philips hp400 (the specs don't show so much differences!). I already tried them out with several types of music (tribal psy, scando trance, ambient, dark ambient, black metal) and they always had the same good sound (at least for the money I paid for them it's marvellous sound!) ... I'm really satisfied. And sweat is not really an issue as the Sony have a same dense spereating material between speaker and ear like the philips hp550 have, so if I sweat really much or when I clean them with wet paper towels there should be no danger that the speakers get wet inside due to the dense material!
  6. The longest one I have here which isn't already mentioned is Klangstrahler Projekt - Rising, 14:18 long. I think it's their best piece btw
  7. Oh no, no earpluggies please, I can't wear those, they always fall out of my ears! Really, my ears seem to be somehow misformed for that type of listening experience, no matter what I try, all earplugs fall out after a short time ... and having to put them in again every few steps is annoying, I already had this problem The behind-the-neck ones sound like an okay alternative ... I must say that I never really thought about buying those yet as I was always of the opinion that the bass support wouldn't be too great with those, but I looked them up at the Philips site and the specs seem okay. The good thing is, that I've been checking and they are avaliable in the same shop where the HP460 are, so I can try out both before buying The Technics ones are one of my wet dreams, but they cost over 100 Euro ... I'd in no way be able to afford those ... as I said above, quality begins at the double amount of money I am able to spend Plus I would not use them for running. If I paid so much money for headphones I don't want to make them all sweaty and that ... I sweat more than a normal person, so when others say they don't sweat much it doesn't mean the same for me <EDIT>: That's true, but if I buy headphones with soft material the sweat will probably be sucked up by it like a sponge ... by that they are likely to start to reek earlier than the ones with the leatherlike earpads - there the sweat isn't sucked up so much, it just rinses down. Plus I already tried the HP400 ones for running (they have the same earpad material) and the fit was perfect (crap was only the sound, you know)...
  8. Yes, this is another topic about headphones. I need new ones. Seriously. Because I'm running with them all the time and they get all sweaty and meanwhile they reek already (don't tell me now to clean them, I fucking bathed them already in water several times, it still gets worse and worse, I'm having them for about three years already ) ... and they aren't suitable for high summer temperatures as my ears get soo hot with them on ... I want new ones. PHILIPS SBC HP550, that's the model I have. I can't find it anywhere to buy anymore ... but I don't want new HP550 ones anyway, they're too hot for the summer. I already bought another model - Philips SBC HP400, light ones and actually not even so bad for running (they fit well, I wasn't sweating so much with them and all that), but the sound, it was worse than crap. Bass support about beyond zero, synths so overdriven that they hurt my ear (I turned it up real loud 'cos I wanted bass!)! No, that's nothing for me. I mean, the sound wasn't even that bad for other music that does not focus so much on basslines, like metal or so, but I want the headphones for running and for running I need psy! So I sold them again and spent the money on beer. But that didn't solve my problem in the end. I'm now still searching for good, cheap, quality headphones. The point is that they should not be expensive and still they should deliver a good sound. And a fairly comfortable fit for my head ... but they may not fall off while running, my god! I don't expect the bass as phat as with the HP550 ones as I want some that don't press on the ears so much to have ventilation and not to sweat too much under them, but they should deliver a good, heavy bass-supported sound (I don't want Etnoscope drums to sound like somebody is knocking on the outside of the headphone speaker )... I already thought about buying the Philips SBC HP460 ones: Specs: 15-28.000 Hz, Neodym drivers, powerful sound. Anybody has experiences with those? Good/bad? Or does anybody know a better model (nothing above 50 Euro please, I have no money (the prob is, that real quality begins probably at the double amount of money, eh he ))...
  9. Austria: http://www.vulcanic.at/ http://www.suntribe.at/ look on goatrance.de too
  10. Earthtrance. That might not be the most brillant one, but it was the first goa compilation - actually the first goa CD at all that I bought. Got it for two euros (no joke) in a box with dumping-prize-items at Libromania (that store doesn't exist anymore). That CD has a very special meaning to me, therefore I say it's the "best" IMHO ... it was my first encounter with the Man With No Name, Banco De Gaia, Eat Static and several other tracks which are nowadays reagrded as classics
  11. Well ... back then I was mostly into the early Dream Dance compilation series ... with artists like Sven Väth, The Visions Of Shiva (How Much Can You Take?), Energy 52, Oasis, Disco Citizens, Paul Van Dyk, CJ Stone (Tower Of Naphatali), Chicane... A bit later I had a Dance To Trance and DJ Quicksilver period ... which then led into trance music of nowadays until end of 2001 as I discovered psy - fortunately...
  12. Oh... Does that mean we lost another artist to Fullon? That's really a pity as the Feuerhake sound was always very unique and original
  13. Yes, Feuerhake is very good ... I love it Klangstrahler Project are very nice too ... their stuff's a bit calmer than Feuerhake...
  14. I don't download much anymore, but ripper groups are nowadays the only way to go, because with those files you can be 95% sure that it's no fake... And BTW, the stuff I search for is only avaliable through ripper groups anyway...
  15. The last thing I heard of them was Fire on Goa-Head 18 ... and it was an incredible track (it's my second fave on that complilation )... I hope they will release some more in that style...
  16. Well, I never really cried to music (I mean that I burst into tears) ... that can only do films to me, but I got wet eyes because of wonderful melodies already some times: Carbon Based Lifeforms - Hydroponic Garden ... that's made my eyes wet more than once at the first listen (and still)... S-Range - 2001 ... the track, not the album (though it's brilliant, but it doesn't make me cry) ... as I heard this "I'm convinced that there must be many, many higher civilizations ... blahblah"-sample together with this wonderful synth that drags itself through nearly the whole track I really was stunned... Noma - Another Time ... mmh yes ... although this sounds already melancholic to me, but well...
  17. I can go completely nuts on the dancefloor too. I had several burn scars of the cigarettes and joints I kicked out of people's faces with my arms (smoking on the dancefloor isn't a good idea, lol) And I'm like Seraph - I can't understand how people can stand still to this music. Once I was in a club where the security was posted in front of the emercency exit doors at the side of the hall - and the securitys (all black guys ... that looked SO cool, hehe) were standing like statues. They did not move. And I just didn't get it ... I mean, how can they stand completely still? The walls were shaking, the vibe was incredible - but they did not move. Not even tap their toes a little. Crazy...
  18. Blue Lunar Monkey - Dance Around (can it get more uninspired?) S-Range - Trance Troopers Haldolium - How U Feel Magnetrixx - Suppencaspa (I know what a Suppenkasper is, so to me it sounds just plain dumb)
  19. Yep, yep, yep ... May 4th ... I can't wait And no matter what sound they play now (according to EP it will be boring fullon, which isn't so good news), I have never seen them live and I think I absolutely need to, no matter how they are now, they made amazing stuff back then
  20. RTP

    your taste

    I'd say I'm mostly into scandinavian prog morning ... no crazy stuff though, that's why I didn't vote for the northern europe one. S-Range, Matenda, Human Blue ... I love But it's not crazy. Etnoscope would fit rather under crazy maybe. No, not maybe ... actually actually. Ah, fuck it, I voted for prog morning...
  21. Auricular. Definitely. Actually AFAIK Auricular = Shiva Chandra... I don't know, but Genetic Spin also reminds me a bit of Chandra ... you probably might like that...
  22. I think Feuerhake's great music. And I even like the cover, it's not gay in any way IMHO... And the other one, the Psychedelic Blonde ... it can't be bad music with artists like Human Blue, Prex and 12 Moons...
  23. MATENDA - SMIRI SE Nothing comes close to that! This is just ... my frequency! Other ones are: Carbon Based Lifeforms - Central Plains + Tensor Eat Static - Abduction Matenda - No Return Shpongle - Around The World In A Tea Daze (Ott Remix) Bluetech - Prophetic Sines Saafi Bros. - Wellness Farm Björn Lynne - Messages
  24. Oooh guys, I wish I could go. But it shall not be, I just live too far away Well, nevertheless I wish everybody a great time there
