  1. Watch this then ask Kim Jong-un to #sendnukes ... I almost cried.
  2. Alav ha-shalom! Thank you for your legacy
  3. Modern goa/new school

    That's true but it's not because artist are not trying. Problem is in listeners i must say. That's what's holding us back. Goa came from many different styles, merged to become Goa Trance later. Now most of us whos doing this thinks same, about doing something 'fresh'. Ofcourse you can't merge it with Jazz or Country music but more to with other subgenres of Psytrance or techno (like Zenon does) or trance, euro trance etc. Then we do this, using patterns and technics used in other styles which were used back in 90s aswel: - offbeat or triplets from Progressive - FM/zap fart sounds - so called 'fullon filters' on kick/bass group - many other things... Not so unique but still not used in Goa Trance, and when you combine all of different technics from different styles and put into Goa, then it becomes something different. Then you spend months and months of that track, playing and testing around on dancefloor, finaly get it released, you are really happy with some fresh work and blaaah... Then you get from 'true Goa' people something like: - Meh, it's not old school! Bro, this kick is too sharp. That bass too phat, cmon that's fullon! Mate, that's not Goa, listen to Astral Projection or Hallucinogen! You worked on this track 6 months? You fucking wasted your time... At first you are being acused for ripping off Goa from 90's. So you take your time and energy and you try something new. Wrong, now you betrayed true spirit of Goa Trance. With Goa scene being so small and limited you literaly have no much freedom for evolving. You will try, release something you think is different, people won't accept that new thing, sales will sucks and label will say NO. So you can't release music you made by your taste and what you love, without releases there is no promotion - no gigs - no money, you loose chance to upgrade your equipment and to advance. You are being tired and depresed by this and you stop. One by one will stop doing it or switch to other style or genre. I am having a lot of conversations with other artists last few years and I must say lots of them are depresed by such matter. That's a huge problem! But you see, younger generations love and accept those changes, fresh things, modern sound. Yet older guys can't accept that is not 1995... And then you get most funniest/stupid comment like: Ah bro, this music is too loud, can't listen it because my kid is sleeping in another room????? Cmon. I understand we all have families and no much free time for parties and festivals, but don't judge music without hearing it at dancefloor! GOA TRANCE IS DANCEFLOOR MUSIC! I am not pointing out to anyone, with this post I just wan't you to think about it. As a Goa lover you are presenting your self, do you really love this music and try to keep it alive or destroy it? Goa is small as I said and this is one of places where you come to share it with others, to hear their opinion. To most of artist this place has value. But somehow we have no more freedom regarding how to produce what we love, we can't have mastering we like because you need more dynamic range, we can't have covers we want. Basicly no freedom. No freedom - no inspiration, no inspiration - no music. In other subgenres there is no such problem, you can make whatever you want and it will be accepted and supported.
  4. This is so called 'Pop Full On' and it's dead for some 4-5 years now. Padmapani gave you an example of what is future of 'psytrance'. They call it 'Future Prog' and it's just kick/bass variations, some percussive work, shamanic/hindu vocals, mantras etc. Minimalistic and commercial approach for masses. It's terrible but Brazil/Israel pushed this too much, now if you do this you get payed 5-10k euro per gig or more, first class or charter flights, ************** hotels... People are actually getting so fucking rich pretty fast having 10-15 gigs per month and got payed like this.
  5. Thanks a lot! Some things are taken from here: And Youth sampled from here:

  12. What is "morning psytrance"?

    I don't think think 'morning psytrance' exist because it's same thing as full-on. Those tracks are full-on, especialy last one, classic definition Just like we like to use it Goa trance for example Morning, Acidic, Darker etc they use same so they can describe style.
  13. Again I must say we should be less limited with so called 'standards about style'. Goa came from lot's of genres and styles, why is problem when we do same today? That's why we can't move on to another stage, sadly. Also I noticed problem with 'home-listening only'. Yes, we all do listen at home and review based on such experience. But this is huge mistake imo. I have 'hated' some of the artists or releases, but when I heard them on party woooow, boom, so much better! I understand some people stoped going to parties for this or that reason but keep in mind that every electronic dance genres are made for dancefloor. It's supposed to sound good on dancefloor
  14. Myself. In my opinion I believe that's next level/next stage of Goa Trance, maybe not now but in couple of years. Old school is great, I mean is amazing. But this is not 90s. We should move on, try not to recycle. Goa Trance is my love and life but I do dig other styles and 'tricks' they use. When I start producing I don't care about 'standards' style based like this is goa, this is not, this is fullon, this is prog. I just do what I feel and what drives me. But even more important stuff is sound quality. It's 2017 with all these tools around, again most of tracks sound worse than those made 20 years ago... No, not really. IMO standards are pretty low as stated in last sentence up... But I don't blame just artists. It's the problem with whole scene. If artist makes really clean and modern sound then he is attacked by listeners for 'making fullon', so is the label for releasing it. So they stop doing it... At this moment I would say Filteria/K.O.B, Cosmic Dimension, Celestial Intelligence, Crossing Mind, E-Mantra. They are doing it their way, how they do melodies, basslines, kicks, other elements in tracks and their own way of mixing. It's easy to recognize their work when played in ocean of other artists. Everyone can make 303 but their stands out and that's the signature of the artist. Production. So if you are at party and you recognize their music in few secs, that's it.
