    The land of greeen ginger
  1. Hallucinogen - The Lone Deranger. It defines Goa trance for me... perfect in every way. Tandu - Multimoods seems to be many people's favorite. "Orca" happens to be one of those tracks I keep coming back to. It is a masterpiece. But since I haven't listened to the whole album, I can't put it on my list. Does "Dementertainment" from Twisted count as Goa album?
  2. 1200 Mics - Salvia Divinorum, E=Mc2, High Paradise Zorba - Datora Oforia - Substance Triptych - Thought Transfer + The Path
  3. Lull - Slow Fall Inwards... I bet this track has caused suicides over the years. I'm surprised noone has mentioned Amon (Andrea Marutti) yet. The album, "Foundation" is a masterpiece. Tracks like "Mopula" and "Lost" makes you feel like being locked up in a dark boiler-room, with nothing but the sound of a giant furnace to keep you company.
  4. What is that thing? A "Hallucinophone"
  5. Hallucinogen-fans are hard to please Hmm.. I would rate it 3½ out of 5. Not a bad piece of work. But I'm not totally crazy for it either. Then again, I wasn't crazy for Shamanix on the first 4-5 listenings. The "Posford-touch" is still there, for sure. I was more excited with the new Younger Brother-sound. And if I have to compare it to the other Hallucinogen-"tastes" we've seen in the last 3-4 years, I say they were immensely better (especially "Big Tits") - with the exception of Bubble 'n Tweak, which never really grew on me. Having said that, I'm giddy as holy jumping fuck with this new twitch and life-sign from the Hallucinogen-sphere, indicating a new album is on the way. I'm getting ready for a new spiritually cleansing derangement of the senses.
  6. Look no further than Younger Brother - Happy Pills Taster, from their latest album. Title says it all . Both of their albums are, on the whole, pretty "happy"-oriented. As someone mentioned earlier, Youth vs Abakus is also pretty happy-go-lucky kinda stuff. Look for a track called "Spiritual Being". Other recommendations: Ott - Splitting An Atom Shpongle - The Nebbish Route
  7. I really liked Underworld's contributions to the music in Danny Boyle's "Sunshine"
  8. It's not on youtube, but you have to watch this; 45 gorgeous minutes of HALLUCINOGEN-sounds in super-crisp quality. Enjoy http://www.psysurfeur.com/video_trance_goa.php Scroll down a bit. It's the one called Hallucinogen Live 12.2006 (switzerland). The first 6 minutes of the show are on youtube, by the way. Search "Hallucinogen Switzerland" and it should pop up. Simon does a really cool build-up, using live-synths. The tracklist is: 1. E-Rection - Out Here We're Stoned (Shpongle Remix) (Available on Raja Ram's Stash Bag 4) 2. Beast - Trouble 3. Hallucinogen - Fluoro Neuro Sponge 4. Hallucinogen & Joti - Big Tits (Available on Twisted 10 year Anniversary DVD Bonus CD) 5. Hallucinogen & Lucas - Pipeworm (Available on God Save The Machine from TipWorld) 6. Hallucinogen - Shabby Trance (also Available on Twisted 10 year Anniversary DVD Bonus CD) 7. Manmademan - Karahana (Hallucinogen Remix) (Available on Manmademan - The Legend Remixes from Turbo Trance Records) 8. Hallucinogen & Joti - Long Long Arms 9. unknown - possibly a Metal Sharon track. I commonly refer to this one as "The acid is out of our league". It has Eat Static and Hallucinogen written all over it, so it's gotta be Metal Sharon . 10. Hallucinogen - Shamanix 11. Shpongle - The Seventh Revelation 12. Shpongle - Around the World in a Tea Daze
  9. Dark Ambient is definitely my number one style: LUSTMORD: The Place Where The Black Stars Hang, Rising AMON: Mopula, Gateway, Time is Waiting, Osirion, LULL: Lost Sanctum, Long Way From Home, Slow Fall Inwards Mystical/Space Ambient: MATHIAS GRASSOW: The Old Park, Siddharta, Selina, Nightveil JONN SERRIE: The Far River JON MARK: Eye of the Falcon, Sirocco And occasionally, PETE NAMLOOK: Asbendos, Winter, The Flight Psymbient: SHPONGLE: all tracks SAAFI BROTHERS: Mystic Cigarettes and Midnight's Children-albums INFINITY PROJECT: The Answer, When Sound Becomes Color, Mystical Experience ENTHEOGENIC: Absolute Love, Twilight Eyes, Pagan Dream Machines, Invisible Landscapes YOUNGER BROTHER: Ribbon on a Branch, Sleepwalker, Psychic Gibbon, Safety Zone, GALAXY SOLAR FIELDS Various: MODULA GREEN FULL MOON FASHIONS I never considered Shpongle ambient, by the way. Occasionally they move into ambient territory on tracks like Invocation, Shpongle Falls and And The Day Turned to Night, but I believe that Shpongle is a genre in itself. There are just too many crossovers to accurately define it as a style.... which is pretty much a style in itself.

    I hate Simon Posford because ever since I discovered his music, everything else has pretty much seemed like poo! Shame on you!!!!
  11. The first time I heard it was on the Sonica dancefloor and I went nuts. An instant classic. A close second on the album for me has always been Soma.
  12. I have had my picture taken with Simon Posford on two occasions now. And everytime I was too shy to say a single word. He probably thought of me as a weirdo . But he seems really friendly and makes funny faces for the camera. Nice bloke. Maybe I'll buy him a beer next time and ask how he comes up with all those weird noises.... And when that Metal Sharon-album will come out. I shook hands with Prometheus at Earthcore in 2006 and chatted with Chicago on the dancefloor a couple of hours later. Just brief hello's and how-are-you's. Also, I chatted with a guy from Ozric Tentacles at Sonica 2006 and bough the Arborescence album. He had a nice selection of their CDs next to the stage. I almost met Ott, Tristan and Youth on a couple of occasions. But I am too damn shy. I can't help but feel a little awed in the presence of these talented musicians, whose art has enhanced my life over the years. Silly me
