  1. Wow, just wow! I'm glad to be here. Congratulations to everyone here on Psynews!!!
  2. Haha, yeah maybe a bit too early. It's a lot to digest I know. We can always edit our chart to make changes along the way. Let's take some time to do this.
  3. So a very good day to all of you! Oh no, we are not going to stop with the "best of" series. Here we are to continue our world famous Psynews best of ........ 2019!

Post this everywhere you want, so we can get more votes!!! cheers, Aspartic
  4. I scrolled through the tracks in a hurry on bandcamp and must say it didn't stick to me. The tracks are rough and monotonic throughout their length. I'm looking for something warmer. Not to say this is a great effort, putting 3 CD's of norwegian goa trance together. ;-) I'll have a better listen though. Might change my opinion about some tracks.
  5. I'm going for that Atlantis album due in january. Immersion in deep space. Can't wait!
  6. This album shows immensely the essence of Goa Trance. Anything is possible! Goa Trance is not supposed to follow a formula, not supposed to be generic, but innovative, different and just plain fun! Here we get massive amounts of fairies, angels, floating sounds, chord changes, bouncing basslines and much more. Yep, this is a euphoric, happy and pleasant album of music by Pete and Pan. I witnessed them live at Ohm Gathering in Belgium not so long ago and I remember it was the most outstanding revelation. Something different! Very trancy! The whole album breathes the same happy atmosphere. And if I have to pick a favorite: Tantric Tweak. Man that track is phenomenal. Just the right amount of happiness and heavy basswork. Really great great job you guys. I'm enjoying this enormously. Purchasing now.
  7. Happy New Year to all of you! While I'm not that active anymore, but I try, I check this place everyday! To me this is THE portal to all information on good goa trance. May Psynews forever be around!

By the end of 2019 we have had a huge amount of quality goa releases. Suntrip, Goa Madness, Global Sect, ... they all delivered big time. I'm still in the process of listening and eh well... processing what the talented goa artists gave us this year. Reviews will be added to the threads shortly. Yet an unexpected appearance in 2019's goa catalog made me write a (short) review so you are sure not to miss it. And buy it! Neogoa records sometimes shoots a limited CD release to us and this time its GoaD's Hypnotic Mirage. Immediately when I heard the samples I felt this was an outsider amidst all the goa violence we got this year. Danish Anders Munk manages to melt old school sounds with a warm and thick hypnotic spectrum of sounds. And "hypnotic" is the key word here. Every track is submerged in hypnotic acid bubbles that go on and on until your brain is addicted to it. So beautiful. The mastering is super so your ears can have a break while listening to this masterpiece. Modern goa that doesn't follow any formula, but sticks to a warm hypnotizing feeling. There is not one single filler track. The second part of the release is a remastered version of his previous album Galactic Aviator. Reviews can be found HERE. The progress between the two albums is very noticeable. Hypnotic Mirage sounds much more modern and full to me. GoaD is steadily improving his sounds and production skills. This album is a topper already and I'm sure he will deliver much more in the future. What a surprise! Just ordered the limited CDR. What other choice do I have?

  10. Huge, fucking HUGE! I've been waiting for more Atlantis. Finally my space acid dream has come true.
  11. I am seeing the promotions of this fine album including a UV t-shirt. Is there a possibility to order this kind of CD/T-shirt combination on Bandcamp? I'd love to have a T-shirt but also the bandcamp streaming after buying. Any way to do this? Thanks.
  12. Damn, JaraLuca got us all by surprise here! A huge jump forward since his last delicious album. This one is even bigger and better. Lots of unpredictable turns in each track, highly danceable and lots of power. It's a fresh album without copying himself or other artists. Very impressive and candidate for goa album of the year!
  13. DJ Solitare had me in a grip during his whole set last time at an old is gold party. Steady start, but growing to a grand finale.
  14. Does anyone know of any good fora for progressive house and techno reviews and discussion? Seems to be well hidden or non-existent.
