  1. He was definately one of the best, kicking up dust on every dancefloor... Fly high Oli!
  2. We had our own Omar, may he rest in peace!
  3. Guy is totally nuts, just open his site and you will understand ahahaha http://www.zoransumadinac.com
  4. Don't forget this megahit from my country!
  5. Yes, I've done war crimes when I was 7, advanced generation!
  6. 'Hey guys, Imba is war criminal because he is from Serbia so I can't make music anymore because you are still listening to his music and book him for your parties, so you are war criminal too and this scene is supporting that'
  7. I did not, some were recreated by our own Padmapani and rest I got from original projects from artists to remix
  8. Bassline from my new track... but now you have that super fast envelopes, phasing and sidechain they didnt use in 90s
  9. MIDI wife old basses aren't much different comparing to one today, it's synthesis. Here are few examples of old school basses. Electric Universe - Solar Energy Electric Universe - One Love Dimension 5 - Omega Centaurus The Overlords - Sundown Genetic - Trancemission
  10. He started singing because all that happiness! https://www.facebook.com/aznhjohyennro/videos/3795002200546435
  11. He is so abviously too happy about this idea he licks you over the monitor!
  12. I always liked to compare building a house with building/making of a track. First you need to find suitable ground/idea, you have to make good and strong foundations with good structural integrity. When you start overloading it with other building materials it needs to stand still or it will fall apart. I imagine bassline as concrete foundations and kicks as concrete pillars, very 2 elements which have to hold everything in place in one huge piece. And then you add layer by layer, just like bricks until you get walls of sound! And if you didn't pick/make right bricks from the beggining, and you didn't place them well, your wall will look ugly and will probably have holes in it (read: sound synthesis). Then you have percussions in top which should remain strong, just like roof so it doesn't collapse. Last thing is facade/mix. If you done previous things right that should be easy without too much effort and you get your house beautiful and very much functional. Just like your track, does it looks/sounds good? Yes! If you miss some of steps in building you will have weak and unstable thing, full of holes and crooked walls. Would you like to live in such house or you will try to fix it and polish it? What he said! Take 90s Goa hits, Teleport, Mahadeva... they are not super complex. Their complexity is simplicity. They made huuuuuge sound with just few layers!
  13. You can't compare Goa scene with Psy scene, first because of the size of it. Second because the quality of it. We in Goa don't have that amount of money for marketing but could improve quality, with quality probably more gigs and sales, then more money to invest into marketing but not gonna happen anyway... because Goa Illuminati! If it's up to me but it's not, quality like new Cosmic Dimension and nothing less is the only way forward. The most finished/complete album in Goa for last decade aaaaand that's just some Imba's opinion... and then there is his opinion, and his and his and hers and we are just opinioning each others instead of doing something Anyway if you didn't, check the album - 2k views in just 2 days: And yeah Astrix is daddy, he always was and always will. Because he know how to make proper music in proper time!
  14. Quite investment, now you have studio sound quaility!
  15. Imba

    VA - Gamma Draconis

    Can't judge guys who didn't make specific style in decade or more. Sometimes I don't make music for half year and much thing I forget, much things change in short period. Roy, BOTFB and Shakta are my favorites. Xenomorph composed great one with terrible mixing. Is it because of lack of knowledge or proper gear? Or he just forgot how to, anyway he was never into clean production so... Astrals... more trancy than goa, artists choice. Judge it after you hear it and feel it on dancefloor! MFG took few decades old track and finelly polished it to fit 2020s RA would be perfect with more balanced mix over layers, bass and percs are too loud. Track as idea is great! Oforia deliever sound that could fit everyones taste on todays festival, mixture of everything yet Goa. It's strange indeed because of all these styles but it's great to see all these names with their own vision of how Goa should sound today. I know some of guys were hugely impacted by some of festivals in last years and decided to change their style or update it... I remember Battle of Future Buddhas told me 'I don't want to make dark shit anymore' which he proved in this compilation. RA was satisfed with how some new Goa sound on dancefloor in Apsara, and now you can hear he tried that. And I am happy for that, I don't want to listen 20+ years of same sound over and over, this is unexpected but refreshing
  16. I will buy if you change artist name to Nhjo Jong-Un!
  17. Smaller capacitors here cost 1cent to 1euro, bigger can be bit more expansive. Soldering is not rocket science but yeah, you need some skills. Without them you can destroy print. Just open housing of the amp and inspect them. You don't wanna have some blown and all that acid on print
  18. Beware that SU-X955 is old thing but if capacitors werent replaced they should. My 80s Phillips HiFi was on half power, when I replaced all capacitors and resoldered everything it was full power again. Maybe previous owner done that but again... They can also look normal but after 30 years they are dry af Open the SU-X955 housing and visual inspect them. If they look like this, they are pretty bad.
  19. Now you just need to put bassline down for 2-3dB, and lowcut it higher (cut at key frequency with 30dB sloper or more). It's too subby and eats too much of the mix. Track have potential indeed, I am here if you need any help !
  20. You didn't have tools back then or they were really expansive. Today it's easy to do it with EQ or dynamic EQ to put down specific frequency ranges, automate as you like. Some of them used different technic and one example is Dimension 5. In very melodic parts they added click sample over kick, at 2.08 click comes in: MWNN has best production in Goa scene in 90s, he managed to have his kicks and bass flat and steady. If attack on kick isnt fast enough, he used longer subby ones 1/8 and put them louder few decibels than they should be. Few examples: Lunar Cycle, Low Commotion, Neuro Tunnel, Dawn Chorus... Then you had in Moonracker remix metalic kick similiar to one from Gnocchi by Miranda. Cydonia - Shambala, Infinity Project - Superbooster all enginered by MWNN. Early Miranda stuff all by Dan Larsson (Electronic Dreamplanet) :))
  21. From what I heard/know, our serbian musical pride - Talpa has worked so many years on table in living room on KRK 6 which he sold. And after he complained that he will buy another KRK because he is used and perfected on them. Only last year he managed to finish and move to studio, I think those are KRK 8 now: Last year I also 'made' my studio. All panels were DIY and thankfuly to Colin OOOD who gave me various tutorials on that, I was able to save loads of money, to make them look good and have good use! Lets say it costed me 60-70% less from finished product prices - I saved enough to buy monitors, lights and rest fancy stuff. Room is 4x3m, superchunk basstraps in all corners plus flat traps on first reflection points (above head too) and rest filled with pyramidal foam to collect more mids and higs. Luckily in this room i have wood paneling ceilings filled with glasswool which extra isolation. Hairy and heavy carpet which is also big plus. All in all, huge game changer for around 500-600 euro. 1/3 of room is completely isolated. It's very acoustic and in same way I can make music non stop full power without disturbing anyone in other rooms or outside house! Some photos before decoration and with: Now compare that sound/mixdown to Imba - Liberation which was made/mixed in this studio after. Or with any new releases in future
