  1. Great production, great creativity, 604 trance is alive! Really enjoying this album, every track as its own story and overall the album has its own identity, congrats! It isn't easy to create a darkish vibe while keeping the sound clean and detailed, and IMO this album does that. It is not easy also to keep the goa vibe when the sound is modern, and this album brings the best of both worlds in its own way. Boom!
  2. Agreed, great flow and great tracks! Thanks for spinning my track on my country Boom
  3. Hey Lunar Dawn! Nice to meet you Sorry for letting this review slip under my radar, but my radar is also working at a very slow pace due to work and a small daughter Thanks again for the detailed review (we already changed ideas on the promo post), looking forward for your interest and feedback on new tracks that are slowly cooking on my goa melting pot! As always, new tracks keep surprising me and taking my music into new directions. Looking forward to hearing your new stuff. Peace & Light
  4. You could check my music It's definitelly not the "most craziest, out-there goa/psy that exists", but surelly it is not classic and it's always somewhere in between styles! http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/xamanist-7 http://www.ektoplazm.com/free-music/xamanist-initiation
  5. This kind of discussion comes from the beginning of time and goes till the end of time Taste is a very personal thing, so of course there will be a lot of disagreement when we compare. Some people favour to hear lots of tracks in the particular style they like the most, others favour to hear diversity and experimenting... Everyone gets what they want if they look deep enough Personally what drew me as a musician to the goa scene was the amazement about the diversity of sounds and influences in oldschool goa trance. Rock breaks, asian melodies, tribal elements, voices, fx, everything goes! Sometimes the mix was amazing, sometimes was plain weird! Since then, when I danced and tripped to goa, progressive, dark and other masterpieces, when composing I try to let myself go and let inspiration flow wherever it goes... And it's a bliss to sometimes get to where you never imagined you could! I have less time than I wanted to listen to all the new music I want to, but surely masterpieces are being created as always! And boring tracks too... But maybe in a couple of years I will love to hear the ones I dislike nowadays So +1 for diversity, crossovering, imagination, creativity... And +1 for respect for what you don't like at the moment and those who like it! Boom
  6. Very nice festival organized by very nice people! For the oldschool goa heads this is a must. Welcome to Portugal 604 dancers
  7. Yep, different people, different tastes and experiences... With this diverse album I hope everyone likes at least some track and maybe a few like them all
  8. Thanks Paul, glad you liked it! So far, from the feedback I get, "Bubbles" seems to have a love or hate relationship with everyone Peace
  9. Hey! Thank you for playing one of the tracks, please let me know if it bombed the place Sure, if you make it to Portugal and are thinking about visiting Porto (you should) please let me know and we'll meet for beer & chat! Peace & Light
  10. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to the album and to write this amazing review! It's great to know in detail what someone thinks of each track, each moment, what does it bring up in their personal experience I really get everything you said about every track, seems that our background has a lot in common and that you get where I come from and where I'm going. My tracks normally go where they want and I collected a lot of influences through the years, so I think my albums are very diverse, but with Goa trance has it's core and foundation. It's the music that touched and touches my heart and that oldschool spiritual vibe won't leave my bones. 7 years is a lot of time to compose an album, so the diversity is ever greater as I keep evolving and seeking diferent things through the years... I would be very surprised if everyone liked every single track. I compose this music because I love it, I love to make people dance, elevate their spirit and have fun Thank you again for listening and don't take me wrong if I steal "Proggy trippy GoaTrance" for a t-shirt Boom
  11. "7" is the second album by Portuguese producer Xamanist (Sérgio Ribeiro). Seven years after making his debut with Initiation (also released on Ektoplazm) comes this seven track journey through earthy and organic full-on and progressive psytrance with strong old school Goa trance influences. These songs reflect the seven years of change, growth, and evolution, all of which reshaped his creative vision. Bringing a new life into this world and becoming a father was key to this transformation, instilling within his music all the joy, enlightenment, and responsibility that accompanies this pivotal experience. Shifting from more night-oriented psychedelia to a more progressive and hypnotic vibe, Xamanist maintains his identity as an old school Goa trance composer open to new textures and sounds that have arisen over the many years of psychedelic trance evolution. Featuring voices by Sérgio Ribeiro, Joana Tomaz, and Mia Ribeiro. Track 3 originally by Random Mode. Mastering by Colin OOOD at the Stooodio with artwork by Basilisk.

  12. Xamanist, Goa Psytrance act from Portugal https://soundcloud.com/xamanist Enjoy
  13. Nice deep bass, nice effects and atmos, clean mix, flowing story, really digging this one! Really like the style and production, following you
  14. Hi! Very nice as always, got an Haldolium vibe to it, nice intensity, trippy as I like my progressive Impecable production, really liked this one!
  15. Hi! Good track indeed, nice melodies and flow and lots of psychedelic weirdness in a good balance, congrats, polish it
  16. Nice organic intro, great kick and bass sounds as always, great percussive grooves give the track a lot of energy. The track develops nicely with diferent sounds and grooves. Seems to me that the climax is before the last break and not in the final part, maybe that's your idea to smooth things before the end of the set. I think the track is suitable to close you liveact, IMO could end more smoothly not to stop people's heart Well done
  17. Hi Simon! Nice intro, good clean progressive groove and ambience, the floating melodies work great. The track builds up slowly in a nice way, always evolving... Nice rythmic tweaks and changes. The last part delivers in a dreamy way. I feel that from 6:00 to 6:30 it could go further, explode a bit in some way, maybe an over the top melody... Seems that the energy ducks a bit there Great track, one of your best, congrats
  18. You got the psy! At least you got nice elements for creating a good goa psy track. Now improve the structure and the mix until you reach reachable perfection
  19. Great melodies indeed! Liked the story of the track too, well done. Suggestions: Maybe the track could benefit with more percussive/rythmic elements; Personally didn't like the screaming sound on the beginning of the last part. Good job!
  20. Xamanist - Am I the Universe From my upcoming album "7", full track mastered by Colin OOOD. Is the Universe in me or am I the Universe? Enjoy and comment please Peace & Light
