  1. I can't really talk about the scene since I haven't been to a psytrance party in years. I also haven't been in contact with any psypeople for even longer than that. But there is something I can say about the music: it's true that there are a shitload of forgettable and uninspiring releases (for my taste anyway), but as far as I can tell that is not exactly a new development. I think it only was different in the very beginning but as soon as goa/psy left the state of being something very undergroundy this changed. Which is what happens to every style sooner or later, especially since it's gotten easier to release tracks or albums and put them online instead of having to have a physical release to get your music out to the listeners. But for my taste there is still a lot of very nice stuff that gets released. I just need to do the cherry picking and dig for the stuff that moves me. Not only when talking about psy/goa but also when it comes to hip-hop, metal or other electronic styles like indie dance or techno. This can be very tiresome but in the end the output I get is more than just worth it. About the short attention span: a rather popular topic in the media but I can't tell if it really is as bad as some people say. Obviously there are apps like tik-tok or instagram where you can post and watch reels that only have a limited amount of time they can last. But they are not the only media available and also not the only media used. If you want something longer there are still regular movies or series, or TV programs. Reading book is still (or again?) rather popular. But we have to face the fact that life is faster than it used to be: technology advancing faster than it used to, news being available faster (and in bigger quantities) than before the internet, an overload of personal opinions available on the internet and what not. When it comes to music there seems to be the trend (at least with techno, can't say how it is with psy) to play only very short sequences of every track and mix in a new one very fast. Not exactly my cup of the and this indeed seems to be a thing with or for younger people. But that's how it is, young people want to try new things instead of doing the same stuff we did again and again. Perfectly normal for any generation in my opinion. Never the less most of the tracks I buy for djing (techno, progressive, indie dance) and also the stuff I buy for my private pleasure (the psy/goa stuff) are in a "normal" lenght. This mans despite new trends I can still function/listen in the way I used to.
  2. I personally would prefere it if the forum keeps running. I'm only posting once in a blue moon but I do read it way more. And I've been able to discover some amazing tracks/artists/albums through this forum lately so it is still very helpfull for me. I don't think it's that bad if moderating the forum only happens with a delay. Considering the forum is not very active anyway I don't see any harm with that.
  3. I also hate Spotify and never use it. But the album is also available on youtube (www.youtube.com/channel/UCrbvoMC0zUvPL8vjswhLOSw) if you want to listen to the full tracks. And if you like it, the tracks can be bought from Beatport, or you check if the physical release is still available in the Infected Mushroom merch shop. Great album btw. The remakes sound (obviously...) more modern than the original versions but IM still managed to keep the original spirit of the tracks. I definitely hope for a second edition with more tracks...
  4. Have you tried the Terrafractyl albums, definitely some jazz influences if you ask me...
  5. I allready ordered it, together with a Matsuri Digital vinyl... I didn't have to pay any taxes on it but I guess it just slipped under the radar...
  6. I got that CD too and also ordered the Aswaad Collective comp you posted... I haven't been able to listen the comp but the Psykorhythm EP is great. I listened to the track from The Square that you posted, excellent stuff too! I think I have to order that one too... I got a lot of new music lately, too lazy too post it all but besides the stuff mentioned above that's some of it: https://www.discogs.com/de/release/4039219-Alchemix-Brain-In-Action https://www.discogs.com/de/release/2357488-Ziki-Outstanding https://www.discogs.com/de/release/1799260-Vibetribe-Destination-Unknown https://www.discogs.com/de/release/4996863-Solar-Spectrum-Source-Energy-Creations https://www.discogs.com/de/release/5082157-Solar-Spectrum-Droplets-From-The-Matrix https://www.discogs.com/de/release/1282169-UltraVoice-The-Star-Alliance-II https://www.discogs.com/de/release/1607310-Transwave-Phototropic https://www.discogs.com/de/release/6280248-Various-Goa-Energy https://www.discogs.com/de/release/14002662-Off-Limits-Eargasm https://www.discogs.com/de/release/2275010-Faders-Feelings https://www.discogs.com/de/release/1785018-Bitkit-Necessary-Illusions https://www.discogs.com/de/release/1224484-Twilight-Wet-Wild https://www.discogs.com/de/release/10473597-Various-Terraformer https://www.discogs.com/de/release/16817631-The-Maniac-Into-Madness https://www.discogs.com/de/release/15097453-Galaxy-Unit-Quasaroid https://www.discogs.com/de/release/7784770-Lunar-Dawn-Kolovrat https://www.discogs.com/de/release/8033448-Proxeeus-At-The-Mountains-Of-Madness https://www.discogs.com/de/release/10031917-Toxeed-Trip-Beyond-The-Lost-Temple https://www.discogs.com/de/release/342303-Verros-Suki-Shiva-Space-Technology-Israel-II https://www.discogs.com/de/release/18755842-Artifact303-From-The-Stars
  7. That's the kind of full-on I like and miss. I can even be cheesier for me... I didn't know Lexxus but I just pre-ordered a physical copy of that album. Thanks for posting it!
  8. Now this sucks. I used to buy shitloads of CDs back in the day. I made a few orders since covid started but nowadays I mainly use discogs. There still is goastore.ch, the prices are swiss-like, this means they are rather high. Don't know about the shipping costs for foreign countries. Are you guys sure psyshop is really gone? Maybe the owner just failed to renew the domain name?
  9. Yeah listening to your stuff in alphabetical order has its downsides. But if I don't do it like that I forget which albums I have allready played. Plus I tend to listen to stuff I suppose I would like and miss some of the gems that are hidden in the unknown parts of my collection. But that's just how I'm doing eat, to each their own.
  10. I'm still on with the mission. But after listening to all artist albums untill E or something like that I got into buying stuff again. Since then I'm occupied with listening to all my new albums and compilations. When I'm finished with that I will continue where I left. At least if I'm still working from home, otherwise I doubt I will have enough time to do it.
  11. My newest find in the melodic goa section is JIS - Illusions of Reality, for sure my favourite goa Album at the moment
  12. Thanks for reposting this Psytones. I just sent the label an E-Mail asking to buy some of their releases that I'm still missing.
  13. I'm not really surprised Astrix has that many views on YouTube. I mean he's playing on huge and commercial festivals with big names from the techno (and other styles) scene like Charlotte de Witte for example. And of course it helps if you invest money in the promotion... And about Goa being bound to die: I don't think so. Of course its popularity will decline sooner or later (and maybe rise agan after that, who knows) but that's just the regular life cycle of any style. Since somebody mentioned Acid Techno as example: there are quite a lot of tracks in that style that are newly released and also played. The music doesn't sound exactly like it did back in the days, it's slower most of all but imho that style is far from being dead. I think the wish for an evolution of Goa is kinda tricky. Goa did allready evolve into psytrance and progressive for example. This means to me a real revolution will create new styles but Goa will stay the same in its core. Otherwise it wouldn't be Goa anymore from my point of view.
  14. I'm sorry for the late replay. I also own Liquid Soul - Goa Sessions https://www.discogs.com/de/Liquid-Soul-Goa-Session/release/6420041 Just listened to this one once after buying and I was kinda disappointed by it. The tracks are melodic but very close to cheesy trance. I wouldn't mind that since I'm into this kind of music normally, Unfortunately it's the boring kind of cheesy zrance for me... I got a shitload of new CDs since my last post, I can't list all of the stuff I bought, but here is at least part of it: v.A. - Progressive Moments https://www.discogs.com/de/Various-Progressive-Movement/release/841861 Dr. Franz - New Skool https://www.discogs.com/de/Dr-FranZ-New-Skool/release/1369875 Digital Tribe - Free Your Mind https://www.discogs.com/de/Digital-Tribe-Free-Your-Mind/release/1121680 --> Good release, I like Digital Tribe's style in general Puzzle - The Missing Peace https://www.discogs.com/de/Puzzle-The-Missing-Piece/release/994948 -->this one really was a surprise, great album!

  15. Both tracks are amazing if you ask me and I would gladly take a full album in a similar style.
