  1. hey there

    you have nickname sneila, does this have anything to do with the sneila project by C. Constantinescu ?

    let me know pretty PLS :)


  2. It's clear who contributed what to UX project: Slide's Unstable is plain harsh dark psychedelia, while EON Project is very rhythmic, layered and atmospheric music. This album holds my interest from start to finish, something that Unstable could never do. I like the industrial sounds mixed with trance here. Chris Kylven has a lot of diversity in his music. I think he's underrated. He's the reason there is some soul in the Ultimate Experience album. 8/10 from me.
  3. I don't know why this received such a bad response, because it's actually quite good music. Yes it is goa trance, not all goa trance has to sound the exact same style or have popular dance-floor appeal. All tracks are pretty good, nice melodies and atmospheres and great detail. The final downtempo track is great too.

    Slide - Unstable

    It's sad to see people saying this album would be better without the downtempo track, The Zinc-Plated Goddess, that's by far the best track on this album. The other tracks are not bad, but I quickly lose focus after the first or second one because they're all the same and not very interesting to listen through. Nothing stands out. The Unstable album is nothing like Ultimate Experience, it's more scattered hard psychedelic trance rather than thick dark goa trance. Maybe the tracks are better on their own or in a mix, I don't think this is an album to listen straight through.
  5. I am an elitist but I think the majority of others around here are against elitism: they support things like re-releasing CDs, releasing music for free, etc. Maybe we can use a different word for believing your opinion is right and everyone else's is wrong.
  6. I have this (http://www.discogs.com/release/59061) and the track Dreamtime there is different from the one on youtube, so I think that is X-3.
  7. Anoebis bought some items from me, all was well, he doesn't seem like a very talkative jolly eBay buyer, anyways, I was going to send him some Suntrip records stickers with them as a joke, but I decided I'd rather keep them.
  8. Well I think you could find both with a little googling and torrent searching, but here ya go: 01 Twelve Moons: Zero Gravity (Remix 2) 02 Planet B.E.N: Y2K 03 Dreamtec: Venus 04 Shpongle: Divine Moments of Truth (Instrumental remix) 05 Matenda: Split Personality 06 Stoop & Fidget: Bits & Pieces (Sunday Night Live Madness Mix) 07 Vibrasphere: Autopilot 08 Monoclone: Dark Whisper (Tuesday Morning mix) 09 Psychonaut: Neurosphere 10 Infected Mushroom: Symphonatic 11 Man With No Name: Revenge All trax 2000, except MWNN 1998, Vibrasphere 1999. http://www.sendspace.com/f

    Yagya - Rigning

    It's OK, but you can't really listen to it unless in a perfectly still environment, it's extremely mellow music.
  10. Cool track, but is it Dreamtime or X-3?
  11. CHi-AD has the most unique and magical tracks, and lots of them. But I could understand if he got bored of spending so much effort on making tracks that go largely unappreciated.
  12. Interesting, I'm curious what you think classifies the music as psychedelic. Some goa trance seems to achieve this through complex patterns and layers and acid sounds solely, while other achieves it more through unpredictable changes and effects. I'm probably not wording this too well, but I think projects like Cosmosis, Shakta, Dimension 5, Miranda, etc, etc, on one side created a very different style of psychedelic music than projects like Koxbox, Ubar Tmar, Sandman, Infected Mushroom, etc, on the other side. Of course there is overlapping of the styles in each.
  13. I think JonCrow is trying to stir up a flame war by accusing others of being trolls. This is a classic trolling technique called the Anti-troll. Anyways, what I wanted to discuss here is why certain people like certain artists. I know it is different taste, but I believe there are some underlying factors that determine one's taste, and also that it can be described more accurately. This thread seems to have missed the point, perhaps people are too eager to defend themselves rather than explain themselves as Elysium has said.
  14. I don't "like" any genre, I "like" certain good musics which may or may not fall into certain genres. There's always crap in every genre, and I think Koxbox is one of the rare craps in goa trance.
  15. I think most goa/psy mixes don't have that good of track selection and arrangement. There are too many mixes just using popular tracks. Mixing skills is mostly just making them go together smoothly at a good point, which is still important, but only after picking tracks and arranging them first. One thing I like about the mix I mentioned in first post is that it's mostly obscure tracks just released on an EP or something, not that special alone, but they all work perfectly in the mix. I also think goa might be harder to mix, since lots of the [better] tracks are so unique and different
  16. 1995, UltraBass, for those that like eastern chantings in their musics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sy9_gZwrPbA
  17. Lots of these early trance releases are very chilled music. 1993, UltraBass: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5L4Dj1qdFE 1993, Alien Signal: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGx9WpOicQQ
  18. I just think it's a bit scewed since Twisted had 3 releases from 95-97, but it doesn't matter, give ultimae a little more competition if you want. anyways there's no poll...
  19. I don't know when Tiesto stuff got called trance but maybe someone else can enlighten us. Most trance I have is from 1992-1996. That L.S.G. track is nice, his first album is good, the rest I don't like so much though. But he has a ton of good singles on his various aliases as well as L.S.G.. Here is typical Mystic Force sounds, melancholic, eastern, melodic. I think any goa lovers should find this easily accessible, since it's quite similar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=630HQxz7vVY
  20. There's a lot of great normal trance releases for those after GOOD music, not just PSYCHEDELIC music, which is often overrated. My favorite artists so far are: Alien Signal Aqualite D.I.D. Earth Nation Influx L.S.G. Mystic Force Solar Quest Symbiosis UltraBass Union Jack Virtual Symmetry There's a lot others.. and probably a ton more I've never heard of. Share some. If they are vocal please indicate that; none that I listed use vocals.
  21. Yes, my friend was holding some of my CD collection and is selling it for me. Is that a crime?

    Pleiadians - IFO

    Very overrated album. Maia and Alycone are excellent, and Electra and Celaeno are pretty good. The rest may be some of the most psychedelic music you ever hear, but that doesn't make them good, and indeed they are not very good. 7/10
