  1. I'm really puzzled. The Neon Nebula EP of JaraLuca that preceded this album is bliss and very sophisticated goa, where this album not even comes close. It doesn't even sound like JaraLuca. I really don't know what happened. It sure is a shift in sound and composition. More like full on psy with a light touch. Go for the Neon Nebula EP for full power JaraLuca.
  2. I'm holding it 🙃
  3. Wow, this debut of Veasna is bulls eye. It's serious goa with a twist. The pace is in mid tempo, according to goa standards. This storytelling, the unexpected twists and the hypnotic nature of this beast of an album make this a bomb. I'll be forever sorry I didn't get the cd. Wonderful album.
  4. Artist: Veasna Title: Providence Label: Goa Madness Records Release date: November 15 2023 1.Seed 10:09 2.Void 08:41 3.Marbles 08:09 4.Glade 08:51 5.Loom 07:56 6.Miraculix: Search & Destroy (Remix) 09:37 7.Shriek 07:27 8.Morphic Resonance: Bad Dreamer (Remix) 09:32 9.Karma 07:36 Veasna, aka Patrick Dinklage, already released 2 full albums on Neogoa: Energy and Spectral Flux. Still have to find the time to carefully listen to those two, but this third installment makes Veasna one of the great. I couldn't resist writing a positive review about this release. The music is the kind that you don't hear at the start or end of a party, but right in the middle of the night. Just when everyone is in his/her own zone. Dark, badass and hypnotic. Pure 100% goa. The mighty 10 min opener Seed sets the atmosphere for the rest of the album. Slowly building into a hypnotic monster of a track. Everything is so natural and organic, it's beautiful. Void is a gem. Deep, dark and so psychedelic. This instantly catapults me to 4AM at any goa party. Goosebumps! A showcase of trackbuilding and story telling. The magnificent Marbles continues in this atmosphere with a punchy basskick. Synths and acid are more prominent here than in Void. Glade is again more similar to Void, a perfect balance between spiralling sounds and deep bass. The acid undertone in Loom is spooky at the beginning, but the track majestically unfolds into a goa stomper no one can resist. Deep stuff right here. Search and Destroy adds more haunting synths. Shriek builds upon a chunky and crunching bassline and shoots acid. Bad Dreamer continues to push you deep into the night with almost an industrial feel to it. Glorious. Morphic Resonance's aggression is still palpable here with an overload of screeching synths. Very well done. The journey ends with the slightly less intense Karma, tunnel-vision like stuff. One that slowly builds, a bit of a mind cracker because of the non-standard bassline. But wow, it does build! And gracefully ends. Providence is a dense pack of serious goa music that goes deep into the soul. Veasna has a story to tell here. The dark overall touch, the heavy bass machinery and psychedelic spirals make this a unique experience. A proper tribute to night time goa. My winner for 2023 and maybe for many years to come.

  5. What was a party for peace ended up in a total slaughter. Heartbreaking to hear about this and our thoughts are with those who are injured, killed, those who lost loved ones and all of them who were there and witnessed this. I caught this in the public news, where Anoebis gave a short interview. He just left the party when all hell broke loose. *in dutch*. https://www.vrt.be/vrtnws/nl/2023/10/08/getuigenis-vlaamse-dj-muziekfestival-israel/
  6. I'm mostly listening to neorave and hardtrance these days. A genre I started listening to some weeks ago. Some badass artists out there. https://bandcamp.com/aspartic
  7. Nice for Proxeeus that he clearly masters different genres. Forest on the other hand is a genre that I cannot enjoy. Melodies and space sounds are my thing. This one"s not for me.
  8. I sometimes go to sleep listening to this album. It puts me into a trance straight away. Extremely good album.
  9. I like the first 4 tracks and especially the first 5 minutes of Insanity. That's some of the best acid pieces I've ever heard. After that it gets weird and too heavy for me. But it sure is an achievement making such complex and aggressive goa.
  10. I'm still very much lurking to all that happens in the goa music scene. Filteria's new stuff is the highlight for me. Great and entertaining as usual. I love listening to it in my car. Centavra looked promising but in the end I found it rather dull. Similar sounds by Median Project are of much higher quality and better story telling. I'm very glad that the parties came back without restrictions. Space Safari was crazy and the last Old Is Gold had me dancing till 8 am. Next one is 18th of march in Belgium, A Trip Into Goa Trance with Anoebis, Triquetra, BOTFB, Ohm Mind and Etnica. I mean, seriously? How good can a goa party get? During the whole corona period and also last year things were kinda hectic in the health care. Slowly it made me tired and anxious. I don't know, it kinda rolled over me. I'm more innerly stressed than before. We also have some home renovations and such. You know, real life things that stress you out in the long run. Each his or her own issues. As for the forum and internet stuffs, I've gotten lazy. A party here and there and listening to great music to chill or to get energy. That's my involvement right now. I still come back to psynews regularly, but just to read. I know it's very hyprocritical. There's less to read if no one posts anymore (myself included). But hey let's not get too dramatic. Things will clear up in the future. It's just been, and it still is, a weird time no one anticipated.
  11. Nothing more to be added really. Tsotsi put every feeling into words. This is a stunning collection of in your face blasting goa trance. I'm talking 3 a.m. stuff right here. The fun shoots through the speakers. And those killer basslines, it's ridiculous. Cherry on the cake is the crazy rolling "Donut Space Walk in the Pizza Nebula" (really? Lol!). Ever evolving until we reach 4m10sec. Total mayhem!! Hats off, what an amazing EP by these two crazy belgians. Also check out this fantastic accelerating acid goa track by Adam Shiva from his mentioned The Nature Of Life EP:
  12. I wasn't drunk or anything edit: but yeah, I sounded really dramatic it seems. Let's say it was not what I was hoping for hence my disappointment
  13. Ephedra, you know I love you. But this is more of the same and less experimental or breathtaking than your previous offerings. I feel like you've rushed the album to make the album. It's hard to find emotions in tracks, as they all sound very samey and not so surprising. Shoot, I hoped for something bigger, more melodic, sometimes some faster music. I'm left a bit disappointed. You can do so much better. You will.
  14. Afgin did something not many were able to do the last years. Make something new and fresh. Try a different take on goa trance. I'm so in love with the wide open euphoric pads and melodies. Most tracks begin with a steady goa beat, some laser sounds and then bom! Afgin rips open the dark sky above you to unload rays of sunshine and blue sky upon you. Don't be afraid of overeuphoric soundscapes. Embrace them. There is a soft touch in any of us. Afgin manages to embrace the euphoria with true modern goa laser sounds. This album took me by surprise. It will be on repeat till the rest of the year 2021. Hail Afgin!! Hell yeah!
