  1. Clarity from deep fog https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE7cF2btpf2Za78j3sKLTNg/playlists Each DAY of ZNA in playlist
  2. True! I was at the market stage during Zen Paradox. Still, a great time with the rest!
  3. I must have been a bit fucked up.... I was there I even have it on camera...
  4. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE7cF2btpf2Za78j3sKLTNg/playlists I'll be uploading videos of each day... Every day.... It's a lot of work (I have so much content). Took me 3 hours for day 1 and it's the smallest one.
  5. How did I miss that, what was I doing? I love the track and we have an inside joke with the Goa Constrictor about it. We weren't expecting it to be played. Dada was also good but I left half-way through to catch my mate DJ QSES at the chill. Did he play any Synthetic? Because the first hour was Transwave and old Deedrah.
  6. At youtube Astral Fairy (Despina, the famous GOA Mama and coincidentally neighbor in Athens) has a lot of videos. I will start uploading next week. I am so busy this week after holidays, that every day that I wake up I feel like I've been hit by a train. I have a lot of videos, but it turns out i'm a shitty videographer. The better the performance, the worse the videos because I wouldn't stop dancing.
  7. I really wanted to hear this but I just didn't have the patience to sit through UX. Until I left they hadn't played any of their hits so maybe when they played them towards the end it was better. Zen Paradox I "Sacrificed" for Der Dritte Raum at the Market stage. Not such a wise idea but you don't get to hear such a legend often (but then again, Zen Paradox is also rare). Most people said it was fantastic and fit great for King Andrew Till afterwards. For both I was at the dancefloor but too exhausted, so I opted to go to rest.
  8. Ooooooh, Just realized the connection! Sneaky east-coasters!
  9. Texas Faggott played a remix of Angelic Particles that I have no idea of and I can't find any info about online. At the dancefloor I thought it was Spiritual Antiseptic, but when I got home and checked the video, it proved to be Angelic particles. I will post a video tonight. Has anyone ever heard it before or heard something about it?
  10. I've been to many fests in the past 20 years including a few legendary ones (Samothraki DF 2002, Solstice 2002, SUN 2014, ZNA 2017). It was a close battle between ZNA 2017 and SDF 2002 for the number 1 position and I had given it to ZNA 2017. A lot of people were making the same comparison, some gave it to SDF others to ZNA. I can say without a doubt that ZNA 2022 crashes both EASILY!!! The music has PHENOMENAL, the organisation had improved (unlike 2019 when they exceeded capacity and the majority of the ppl got sick.... all of my group got sick), the dancefloor energy and the friendliness of everyone is something that I haven't found anywhere else. Even the old-school Portuguese that have gone to many BOOMs since the beginning said that this year's ZNA was something out of this world! The sound system quality overall was very good except for the Goa Guardians night, which for the third time has an awful sound. Not so many Psynewers this year: Goa constrictor, Staffan, Joske (who was also playing) and I. These are the only regulars that I met. Concerning the music: Andrew Till played the best DJ set I've experienced EVER, dethroning Queen REE.K. It was 3 hours and I wish it was 3 days! It was weird, funny, powerful with amazing mixing and variety. Sandman enters the pantheon of Demi-gods along with Hallucinogen and Graham Wood' TIP as the best live sets (now called producer sets) I've heard. Staffan was with me and can attest to me losing my mind. Can't describe it in words! Other SPECTACULAR sets: Cydonia (Steve and Dinos): I was actually on the dancefloor drinking beers with Iain Rive (also Cydonia) and Mark V D Flungt amongst other ppl. Iain was very happy and was telling us about who had done what at most tune. Texas Faggott: Spectacular stuff, not too SuomiSaundi. I will make another post about a Hallucinogen remix he played that was a massive surprise OOOD: Acidic fast & groovy party magic! Nervasystem: Such an underrated artist. Amazing production, compositions, very groovy and rhythmic. Since he played at a tough hour (4-6 in the morning) he opted for a mellow/slower set and it was PERFECT. Prana: Very nice to hear all the hits live and with all 3 members RA: The biggest surprise of the fest. Better than Prana IMHO. Old-school and new-school stuff, kept everyone dancing for 2 hours Ray Castle Vs Nick Taylor: Aussie weirdness + Ray's collaborations X-Dream: top notch as usual Laughing Buddha: Another great surprise, played a lot of Cosmosis too (as he was part of the group at the beginning) Skizologic: The new-school strikes. Hypnoxock: great variety and mix of styles, very original compositions (we knew about that) but he made it work on the dancefloor Anoebis: I knew that Joske wanted to play a lot of unreleased and rare stuff. The first hour was OK, it's hard when there are so many unknown/strange/alternate tracks BUT the last 1.5 was a total bang. Filteria: Great as usual This fest, totally rekindled my passion for this music. It's the fest I've spent the most time on the dancefloor. Hardly any time at the Chill and a little time at the Market (Techno) stage, which was a great addition. Honorable Mentions and Weird stuff: - Der Dritte Raum at the Market stage: Hale Bopp of course!!! - Emok at the Market stage: Great mix of prog and techno - Gabriel le Mar at the Market stage: Really liked it - Jaia at Chill: Only listened a bit but was really good - Technossomy: Their equipment was stranded at customs because of Brexit so instead we got a 1,5 hour average DJ set + their big hits at the end - Marc V D Flungt + Ian rive + Steve Ronan at the market stage (Marc was very stressed during all his sets since he hasn't played on the big stage in many years) - UX: Either there was a problem with the drum machine or I don't know... it was out of beat all the time. Really struggled to stay, couldn't stand it, left quickly. -Synchro: The organizers said he had COVID so he didn't come, I doubt it. - BOTFB: Totally wrong time slot and I believe he had technical problems that he didn't even realize (probably the monitors were OK so it was only at the main PA) - I still have no idea who the surprise act was. Wasn't there and didn't care to ask - Chakra had a great reception from the crowd, not so much my cup of tea so just heard them from the lake - Infected Mushroom FINALLY played something that resembled and old-school set because every time they've WERE SUPPOSED to play old-school in Athens, it hasn't been so. Strange that they didn't play Bust a Move (or maybe didn't hear it because at some point I was bored and went to the lake). Stuff that I missed that I wanted to hear, but had to rest: Morphic Resonance, Intact Instict (really bummed for this), Holeg (Would have stayed if UX was acceptable) Obviously there were a few that disappointed. Won't go into that. No need. In the following days I will post tons of videos. Haven't started yet. Will add the channel link later. It's also the first time in my life that I feel the festival blues..... I want to go back there NOW!!
  11. Some things are no coincidence!!! These were my favorite performances + OOOD. I know you only caught the last part of OOOD, it was pure acidic party madness, very fast but still very good! Sandman was OUT OF THIS WORLD! Blown away! Staffan was present too and he can confirm that I had lost my mind.... totally loved it! Andrew Till, the best DJ I've heard EVER. It was 3 hours and wish it lasted 3 days! I'm going to make a post about ZNA at the main page too.
  12. This PDF thingy is genius.. My mate QSES is playing at the chill between Deedrah and Intact instinct, so I'll definetely go catch him a bit. My other mate Fishimself is playing while Technossomy is at the main stage, sooooo bad luck......
  13. This time i'm coming from Porto since I've already been to Lisbon twice for ZNA. Der dritte Raum is the big name at the market stage The main stage is great but has been set-up well for my tastes, I won't miss much I think
  14. I'm slightly younger, my raving/clubing days started in 2001-2002 when I was 17. However, I personally know a lot of the people in the video
  15. How are everyone's preparations?
  16. LEGENDARY ACID & GOA TRANCE ARTIST JAMIE GRAHAM (MOONWEED/SALAMANDER) First time in Athens | Sat 14 May With him: - Nikolas Infinite Zen/Brain Deflections - John Peggos IT-Athens | 8 eur (w/ Beer) | Doors: 23:00 https://www.facebook.com/events/1132672700637260
  17. I'm ready to go! Most of the stuff has been booked. and they announced Nervasystem!!! That's a big one!
  18. I've already started dreaming of ZNA. Possibly in a couple of months it will start becoming reality: booking tickets, flghts, cars, hotel. This time I reckon I'll land in Porto and explore the North before heading to the fest. It will also be like an early honeymoon, since, if all goes well, my wedding will be 3rd September.
  19. I agree, his output is mostly forgettable. AMEN to that... It's a bad track, not even a mediocre one For me it has to be MFG. I don't particularly like any of their tracks.
  20. Ooohhh and another that was fantastic: Alwoods @ IT Athens I've heard Giannis play 4-5 times already but that one was magical and not just for me, a lot of people were blown away, literally as soon as he came down from the booth there were people taling about booking him for private events, fests etc
  21. That would be sweet. I've heard Sean DJ but he played very few of his tracks, so it wasn't realy a Process set
  22. It's been moved to 2022. They announced UX vs Slide a few days ago. My finances are terrible but this is tempting me.
