  1. As much as I don't like such minimalistic drops I perfectly understand need for them. It is all psychological. Some top notch producers told me they don't like it, some of them hate it but they see need for it regarding crowd, so they make them. If you want to play and be big, you need to make some compromises otherwise you can play only on local parties. If you can combine your love with business, that's success. You make tension, then you put it down, put some primitive beats for stomping than start building again. Imagine 8 minutes track of constant full power and melodies, you get tired after 20-30 minutes. Mood changes are good and people love them. I always like to give people to listen to my most favorite live set ever which is this one: We should really study Burn In Noise, technicaly and mood wise he done it to perfection. His music is super powerful with tension builds for over few minutes just like in Goa Trance, yet here and there he put them 'boring drops'. It is different kind of power, different drive, different mood which is needed for the mind and for the body of dancers. I am in process of doing experiments with my own music. Making different version of already released music, example my album... now whole album have it's own remixes or edites with different 'drops' or 'build ups' and some of them work way better than original ones. I know it's up to each ones taste but there is some science in it
  2. My favorite just after Temple Of Chaos! It was remixed back in 2014 and released later on NeoGoa in my EP, now this is another/improved remix. Funny story regarding that remix is that I asked Dimension 5 to remix Temple Of Chaos and they sent me original cubase project from 90s, which was misnamed, it turned out to be Omega Centaurus, another favorite which I decided to remix. Liberation EP was delayed for almost a year because I had plan to build studio, which I did few months ago. Made superb acoustics, got monitors so my sound is 10x better than it was on album. Few compilation tracks and one more EP will come during winter I hope!
  3. Just saw my post from 3 years ago and I noticed I changed my 'style' of mixing. Now no plans, nothing. Just load and play one track and what I feel in moment I do that. I like the feeling of getting something done unpredictable and in last moment.
  4. Alternative Control will always be my favorite full-on project and they were first psy producers that I met even before I started music production, some 13-14 years ago when I was high school kid... oh so much fancy stories from gigs they did around the globe, they were one to encourage me to start with my own production, amazing guys!
  5. I will always miss tracks like this: That's what I listened before I started with Goa and it's damn hard to hear this retro melodic fullon these days at festivals...
  6. But I guess we in Serbia are winners, best psytrance ever:
  7. Everytime I produce something and I am really into it, deeply enjoying sounds and psychedelia of it I got lost, just partly there in chair. I am not very aware of surrounding, feels like im in many places and then when I take a break it's hard to come together for some 10-15 mins ahaha I am not sure if it's what you asked but it is very pleasent experience and then all these inspiration and ideas come, then next day 'how da fuck did I made this?' All I need to do is to get the right sound to trigger that experience
  8. Sevilla In Trance had delay and reverb on bassline, say no more...
  9. I guess most of you are mistaked. It's about mixing not the mastering. Katedra himself has always had this style of mixing: bassy, muddy, industrial. I know because we collaborated long ago on 'Magic Science & Imba - Ghost Town' where he was part of Magic Science, and you can hear his style in the track. Even if I am not, nor personaly nor professionaly for it/this style of mixing, I support and respect his ideas and presentation of his music. And important thing is freedom which not many labels give you these days but Global Sect does which is amazing. In most cases when I finish and send premasters to label they say 'It's too clean', 'It's more Fullon than Goa', or it's not clean enough or buyers prefer more this or that bla bla bla... here Katedra had complete freedom to express himself musical and production wise. Just relax and enjoy in what he delivers to you as his own Goa Trance without genre/style rules and boundaries
  10. 90% of music played there is much worse than that Offbeat which have some sense, musicaly + production wise. Believe or not this is the main thing there: Ear-bleeding ultra sharp kicks, same bass paterns over and over, few note 'melodies' and often oriental vocals that doesn't make any sense. There is no sense in any of it at all but it's as you can see, what crowd wants...
