  1. Horrible news. What the hell is wrong with this world? May he rest in peace.
  2. Such an incredible debut from Filteria. Loaded with power and melody on top of melody. It's relentless, overwhelming sometimes with it's raw musicality. I mean there aren't enough adjectives to describe how perfect this album is. It's such a bomb that perhaps it's this generation's IFO? I dunno, but what I do know is that it is as spectacular now as it was when it came out. Superb classic.
  3. The first compilation from Suntrip and what a journey it has been. 14 years on and this is still a high quality release. Just a few comments... Way back then I sort of panned the Aes Dana offering, but hearing it again I just can't help but get lost in its lushness and gentle entrance to start the album. The Yesod track early on is so hyper and nimble, but then shows it's more controlled side. Seems like this was the only track he ever released. The flute melody in Babylone Beach is one of the most soulful and melancholy sounds I've heard. Has their ever been a sound that crystallized a geographic area like that? You can not hear that and not think of perhaps a Persian kingdom. Sublime. The Ka-Sol track...I, uh...14 years and I still don't know what to make of it. And probably one of my favorite Goasia tracks.
  4. After 12 years I would say the Merr0w, Aerosis, Ra, and Talpa tracks rule the roost. KOB is of course an acquired taste and the Afgin track isn't one of his strongest. What a legacy Suntrip has. This was their 6th release and they're on what...50 something now? Impressive.
  5. Jaunt wasn't my thing, but overall this is still a great compilation. Hope the label comes back with some strong releases.
  6. This is certainly a stellar and unheralded compilation of blistering 303 laden goa trance bombs. Two things... Why does Artha routinely save his best stuff for compilations and EPs? And two, I purchased the physical CD so why is Mammomam angry at me and not offering the Toxeed track? Unless there is a code that I didn't read on the gatefold that seems backward to me.
  7. Cream rises to the top. Emmanuel is to goa trance today what Etnica/Pleiadians was yesterday. Another ripping, melodic effort by the king.
  8. Very psychedelic. Juicy squelches, searing leads, and plenty of concussive force. Moksha and Convergent Images are pure scorched earth monsters that made the Pleiadians arch an eyebrow. The last bit went out with a whimper in my opinion. Would've liked to have seen Retrocede or In The Stream finish out the album. All things considered it's definitely a winner.
  9. Dude...Fire. You. On it! Keep up the great work!
  10. Two things...One, that didn't take long! And two...this is a quality review.
  11. Artist: Ubar Tmar Title: Early Fusion Label: Zion 604 Date: August, 2018 1. A Tale of Taketori (604 Edit) 2. Another Transform 3. I'm Shocked 4. Eternal Return (Early Mix) 5. 3D Heaven ('96 Live Mix) 6. Eejyanaika (Early Mix) 7. When the Light Is Gone (Original Mix) 8. Flying Saucer Landing (Live Mix) 9. E-Talk (Live Mix) 10. Cosmo Drome (Piano Version) Zion 604 has basically knocked everything they have released out of the park. Very consistent which is why this release surprised me. As if you didn't already you have to take this review with a grain of salt. I never cared for the music from this artist. He didn't have the melodies of others and I always thought of his as weird. This compilation of tracks confirms my beliefs. Like the DJ's father above says, it's not my style. This isn't floaty, melodic, or hypnotizing trance. Leave it to the Japanese to make something totally different. It's not bad it just isn't for me. And that's ok. It's rife with discord. It aims to antagonize, like it's angry at the listener. It sometimes goes in weird directions that are jarring or unsafe. There were parts I enjoyed in most tracks, but it was never sustained. Sometimes it was noisy just to be noisy. And don't get me started on the annoying level of Eejyanaika. It's definitely not your run of the mill goa release but what I can say is that I appreciate the varied directions in which he attempts to steer his brand of goa. So...I'll pass on this one.

  12. Artist: Various Title: Goa Trance Timewarp V.3 Label: Timewarp Records Date: October, 2017 1. GoAtma - Listen 2. Microdose - Full Power 3. Persia Vibe - Through The Stars 4. Travma - Modular Sequence 5. Nostromosis & Sonic Elysium - New Life 6. Ion Vader - Trip To Nowhere 7. Jaraluca - Andromeda 8. Lucid Rainbow - Overtones 9. Omnivox - Silent Sweeper (Nova Fractal Remix) 10. Coagoa - Everything is Conscious 11. Javi & Skooma - The Amplitude 12. Screw Loose & Lunar Dawn - Big Crunch 13. Hyperspace - Fiery Dawn 14. Median Project - The Wanderer 15. Cosmic Dimension - Voyage In The Universe 16. Innerzone - Universal Enlightenment 17. Omneon - Psytrance 18. Psychedelic Quest - Crystal Moon I spent more time typing the tracklist than I plan elucidating on this disappointing 2-CD release from Timewarp Records. The first half is the definition of generic, bland "this sounds like goa trance let's put it on the album" drivel. Travma? I haven't heard a good track from him in over half a decade. Hell, a pulse wasn't even detected until Jaraluca showed up. Then the quality ticks up dramatically. But there's a reason for that. Most of the rest of the tracks have been released before on digital eps by...you guessed it...Timewarp. So this release leaves me with a bad taste. Recycled. The only reason to get it would be if you don't have the tracks from the 2nd half or if you want them on physical media. Timewarp Bandcamp Psyshop
  13. Artist: Trinodia Title: Starstepper Label: Self-Released Date: August, 2018 1. Planet Number 12 (2012 Mix) 06:50 2. Goa Feelings 09:18 3. Free Form 08:54 4. Pulsating Neurons 07:56 5. Spaced Out To Noise 09:24 6. Deceive My Eyes 09:40 7. Starstepper 08:54 8. 7th Ace (Optional Bass Mix) 09:05 9. Human History (Ambient Mix) 10:26 "What's done is done and what I've done is right!" Yes it is Nana. Trinodia is a project that we all know about (Daniel Eldström), but one that might not first come to mind. That is until you delve back into his catalog and realize he has produced several solid albums of cosmic goa trance. His latest is a digital release that is unlike any of his previous stuff. So much so that when I first heard it I had to shelve it cause I just wasn't ready. According to him it has taken years to create consisting of 5 previously unreleased tracks, two remixes, one previously released track, and an alternate version of an original. It's got some goa, some psy and full-on, and some drifting melodies. The sound is incredible, full of warmth and pleasing to my ears. It made me want to sift through the layers. He carries some M-run rhythms (Goa Feelings and Free Form) splatters some acid (Spaced Out To Noise), has a pretty good goa ripper (Deceive My Eyes), and ends with a head nodding mix of Human History. These don't sound like B-side tracks because the quality is too high. They're just...different. While not my favorite Trinodia album (that title shall remain with Human History) it is nonetheless and good high-energy effort. Trinodia Bandcamp
  14. Artist: Xerxes the Dark Title: Transmutation Label: Kalpamantra Date: November, 2016 1. Proma Materia 2. Insomare 3. Limbo (MMVIII) 4. Tabula Smaragdina 5. Cold Sanctum 6. Xtra Terrestrial 7. Aeon (Bonus) I came across this awhile back and it stayed with me. Kinda like witnessing an exorcism would stay with me. Please allow me to introduce to you Iranian Morego Dimmer an electronic music maestro that has been around since 2005. This album is reminiscent of the Atrium Carceri style of dark ambient intent on scaring the sh*t out of you if you decide to listen to this at night. Dark Ambient and drone, sounds of things crawling and cracking and whispers echoing across an abandoned castle while nightmarish pads rise and fall in a sea of darkness. An evil presence lurks behind every corner. There is zero light to be found here. Zero. It's a slow, hopeless march into oblivion as demons herd you through the gates of hell. It's enjoyable (insert irony after last sentence) in the sense of trying to focus on all of the individual sounds that make up this slow descent into madness undoubtedly enhanced by the many horror movies I've watched. The vocals on Limbo are wet with the possibility of demonic possession or is that my own imagination? All the tracks are long to make sure you get wrapped up in the horror. My feelings about evil drone like this are similar to my daughter's. "It sounds creepy." Yes it does. A perfect soundtrack for passing out candy on Halloween night. But if you listen to this while you take your kids to school or pick up the dry cleaning....seek professional help. Xerxes the Dark Bandcamp
  15. [ Artist: E-Mantra Title: Serenity Ep Label: Melusine Records Date: October, 2018 1. Serenity 2. Serenity II 3. Balada Haiducului 4. Shadows Picture of a forest. Scary font for artist name. Dude...did you just make a darkpsy/forest ep? Narrator Morgan Freeman: Although capable of many things a darkpsy album to this date has not been attempted. Thank...you narrator Morgan Freeman. Nope this is a brief downtempo ep released by his own label even though everything screams forest music. Actually according to the blurb it was created in a remote cabin deep in the Romanian forest. Sure nothing scary about that sentence whatsoever. Serenity brings his tell tale drifting melodies over top of head nodding beats. Smooth. Part II picks up the pace, but was less introspective. Balada is a slow trudge with a melancholy presence but easily my favorite. Shadows as the name implies is the darkest track yet and I don't know how he completed it while in that Romanian forest. Hope he worked in the daytime. Playing this at night in the forest is some Evil Dead sh*t. All in all nothing earth shattering, but good, consistent, E-mantra downtempo goodness.
