  1. How long are you in the states? There's the Ozora USA festival happening at the end of May in California: https://www.facebook.com/events/321923285103790/
  2. damn! that's a good show story
  3. Oh, I mean, I am fairly sure Liam was the only person actually signed as The Prodigy when they were signed to labels. He's definitely "The Prodigy" and "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned" was strictly him. That said, they had a bit of a rebirth after that album tanked. They did the greatest hits album and a tour after a long hiatus. That tour gave them new life and the remaining 03 albums were all very balanced with Maxim and Keith on vocals with Liam punching up a more fierce and punk sound. Invaders Must Die is just the fucking shit and I got see them the summer after that came out. Was one of the fiercest live shows I've seen. They really did form into a more solid band, especially on stage with the guitarist and drummer and Keith still dances around. The Prodigy can indeed continue on, but that's a personal decision for Liam. Liam could even continue without Maxim and do another AONO, but he may just lay low for a while.
  4. thanks dude!! I really appreciate it =)
  5. Hey man! I hate to be "that guy" but I really don't stream music while at work or in my car (my two main areas for listening to music). Any chance of uploading to Hearthis.at so they can be downloaded? =) please and thank you!
  6. I channeled some of my grief into a retrospective mix... https://goaconstrictor.com/audio/goaconstrictor-firestarterinthesky.mp3
  7. I'm quite gutted and bummed about the passing of Keith Flint. While The Prodigy might not be psychedelic trance, I've dropped them in many sets (including the 1995 Global Goa Party mix I made). I decided to channel my energies into a mix in remembrance of the energies and life from this band Direct download: https://goaconstrictor.com/audio/goaconstrictor-firestarterinthesky.mp3 Hearthis: hearthis.at/goaconstrictor/goaconstrictor-firestarterinthesky Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/goaconstrictor/to-the-firestarter-in-the-sky Mixcloud (doesn't work in the USA): mixcloud.com/goaconstrictor/to-the-firestarter-in-the-sky RIP Punkin' Instigator
  8. that entire New Asians album is great too =) I need a digital copy of that. Can't bring my records to work... yet...
  9. Seriously... this track is fucking solid! Love it love it love it! =)
  10. I just wanted to chime in and say that I've been quite impressed with how this project has developed over the years. Good job and I wish you much ongoing success! =)
  11. Yeah, it's a bit of money but I don't travel much and don't take vacations often. I decided I really love good goa trance and we just don't get the shows I like out here in the USA. It's worth it to me to travel and hear the music that moves me from time to time. Do this this year. 2020 is the eclipse down in South America. 2021 can be Boom or Ozora or something. Now that I have a real job, seems nice to actually get out to hear good music once a year. =)
  12. Thanks for all of that insight! As of right now, I am traveling solo. So I'd be on the hook for the entire car rental. If I can get a copilot, it does sound like the better option...
  13. Yeah, I have no idea what rental prices are. that is likely true
  14. Is it hard to rent vehicles in other countries? I'm considering doing that so I can buy camping supplies and food but have never had to look into this before
  15. I feel like I would have known if a 2017 reissue happened officially. But I've been wrong about so many things in life, maybe this just creeped past me...? I'll wait and pay the extra $$ for whatever boxed set crazy collector pressing gets released. At least I know my money will be going to the artist at that time and not to some reseller.
  16. I don't know the answer to your question but I do agree that this is one of the high water mark tracks of the goa trance history. I absolutely love this song.
  17. It's almost certainly nostalgia that keeps me enjoying it. I was but a teenager when it came out and I listened to it a lot. I definitely have grown tired of that sound and don't listen to their other albums anymore, but I put on Macrophage last week and enjoyed it all over again. While they are most often known for the guitars, the songs where they swap out the guitars for 303s tend to be better. They fuckin' slay with the acid...
  18. I don't want to say because they're my secret little winners...
  19. This is a real worthy 15-year old thread to bump... Space Tribe, bless his heart, is much like Electric Universe. Not much variation between albums. Kinda repetitive in nature. Cheesy full-on, but good natured and hilarious. A few sparkling and shiny gems in the mix, lots of filler. Sonic Mandala and Ultrasonic Heartbeat would be my favorites, but that's only because they're the first and were interesting before I got bored of the sound. That said, Oli Wisdom totally changed the game for merchandise and is a true pioneer. Religious Experience might be one of my more favorite album covers, as it's just too cheeky and wonderful to be ignored. I couldn't tell you a single song or melody from the album though.
  20. I don't own any of these re-releases and don't foresee me buying them, but I approve and appreciate their releases. I don't like buying CDs because I don't listen to CDs. I listen to digital music or vinyl. Vinyl is nice because it is physical and has an opportunity to make something more like art. The middle ground is for you to not-buy them. I do not believe the vinyls sound better than a similarly mastered digital release. These are strictly for collectors. They're for people who want to buy this type of product for their collections. This is what record labels need to do now that music is near worthless with Spotify and streaming options eating up more sales. Now that Shpongle is nearing the end, hopefully Younger Brother is up next!!!!!
