  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. I sometimes go to sleep listening to this album. It puts me into a trance straight away. Extremely good album.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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:
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. Artifact303's debut album has been a long time nr. 1 in my list of all time goa albums. But this second one might take the spot now. Initially I wanted to compare both albums, but this has no use whatsoever. From The Stars is faster, more energetic, more aggressive, just more in-your-face. A different approach. All tracks have a pumping energy and a spiral/tunnel-like vibe that draws you into the music of each track. That's an effort only the best achieve. I simply love this album! Artifact303 remains the king. Hail to the king!
  11. Holy crap, that's a worthy review, Tsotsi! You're the master of video editing, you've put some time into it. I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the music. Khetzal delivers again. Very mystical sounds, a lot thicker sounding than Corolle, I say. In terms of sound, Khetzal, Ra and Antares are a bit on the same line here. Mystical, eastern-like sounds. This is a hell of an album. It's got power, yet it feels very warm. Favorite: Acide Formique. Great percussion backing up a lightning of goa sounds.
  12. Sergej did it again, man how does this guy do it? Piece by piece these are straight in your face whirlwinds of shooting goa trance. I happened to be listening to Time Lord right now and I'm missing the parties soooo much! This music teleports me right there on the dancefloor at 3 am. The melodies are incredible, the complexity is enormous yet pleasing, the drive is speedy.. in other words this record puts a big smile on my face. I give this 5/5. It's all good. I literally can't nitpick about anything here. What an amazing piece of art. Woooow!!!
  13. Oh Tsotsi, I was so into your hypnotizing nonsense, that I wasn't aware you were actually reviewing the album track by track. Your outfit screams "GOA TRANCE" btw Hope the wine was good and the headache wasn't too bad the day after. No really, I loved it!! Keep em coming. This is a mega album.
  14. Heya peepz, good to see you guys are on it. I did this poll for the last three or so years, but its popularity declined and this time I have other things on my mind. Work related stuff... it's busier than past years, which is good for business :D I'm still here, just a bit more on the sideline. And that damn corona prevents all those nice parties. That one hurts. I'll post my favs here soon.
  15. Well, now I know I'm not a forest fan. But to everyone who enjoys it: have fun!
  16. Man, thanks a million for your suggestions. You opened up a new world for me. Heilung... how amazing are they. Never heard of them, but I'm watching with my mouth open to these lives. Strangezero is beautiful ambient trance like I've never heard and This Morn Omina is kinda new beat like. About time. Thanks so much for these eye openers!

  19. K people, I'm closing this and counting the results. Stay tuned!
  20. Just wanted to share this funny but serious Crockett's Theme cover with you. What starts off as a mediocre cover, goes really loose and bezerk after the mid mark.
  21. I'm sorry it's not goa, but those first 30 minutes are godlike.
  22. Ooo, the samples sound delicious! Pretty sure this is a purchase right off the bat. Good job!
  23. It's like people finally start wiping their asses. Considering everything, it was fun to watch.
