  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. My newest find in the melodic goa section is JIS - Illusions of Reality, for sure my favourite goa Album at the moment
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!

  8. Both tracks are amazing if you ask me and I would gladly take a full album in a similar style.
  9. Cosmosis plays guitar and he's quite a stage hog. Don't know how he sounds nowadays but I saw him maybe seven years ago or something, it was ace! Khetzal was allready mentioned in the thread, saw him and his violin live at the same party that Cosmosis was playing. He was also great!
  10. Same here, the track is amazing! I'd definitely buy a re-master...
  11. I will tell you as soon as I have found the time to listen to it. Should be today tho…
  12.

  13. During the last two months I was mainly playing Elder Scrolls Online on the PS4 and Animal Crossing on the Switch. Both games are awesome!
  14. Re-Listening to all the CDs in my collection is (or was, I will have to leave home office and go back to working at my office soon) actually my pandemia project. My CDs are sorted from A - Z, this means artist names but I also added all the compilations later since I also started to re-arrange my Collection. Chill-out and ambient stuff is also included there. But I won't be listening to that since for me this music not suitable for work. I was able to listen all the albums from artists A to D, Maybe 30 to 40 CDs or something. Then I started to listen to albums and compilations randomly (means I chose the CDs but I tried to listen not only to the stuff i allready played a lot back in the days). I'm still far away from listening to all the stuff I have, also because I started to order new stuff. I have to say I'm nearly as adicted to buying stuff as I was back in the days… I am listening to all the new CDs that come per mail but I also keep playing my old stuff. Some of the albums I rarely or never listened to are way better than I have expected, I found some real gems there (well, for my taste anyway). And the stuff I used to play a lot still moves me. What doesn't move me anymore is the "standard" prog, it's quite boring to me nowadays. But also in that category there are tracks or albums I still dig. Anyway, I now wonder if and how I will continue listening to goa and psy when regular work starts again, I rarely find time to listen to Music at home, besides the tracks I use for djing (not psy or goa). On the other hand I started to write down the tracks I could use for a mix, mostly goa and neo-goa stuff. I will have to find out if I can mix that stuff tho…
  15. Lots of new CDs: Radical Disortion vs. Mendark -. Purple Energy https://www.discogs.com/Radical-Distortion-Vs-Mendark-Purple-Energy/release/567130 Goasia vs. Omegahertz - Purple Energy 2 https://www.discogs.com/Goasia-Vs-Omegahertz-Purple-Energy-2/release/787532 v.A. - Swisspsy Compilation Part One https://www.discogs.com/Various-Swisspsy-Compilation-Part-One/release/1027992 v.A. - Origin II (Nano Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Origin-II/release/434344 Morphic Resonance - Trip To The Stars https://www.discogs.com/Morphic-Resonance-Trip-To-The-Stars/release/10202834 Cosmic Tone - Special Edition 8th Anniversary Halfmoon Festival - Pha-Ngan Island https://www.discogs.com/Cosmic-Tone-Special-Edition-8th-Anniversary-Halfmoon-Festival-Pha-Ngan-Island-Thailand-/release/4531613 v.A. - Exploration Of Dreams (Dimensional Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Exploration-Of-Dreams/release/3532682 v.A. - Different Attitudes (Telekiness Records) https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Telekiness-Different-Attitudes/release/851842 v.A. - Psychedelic Vibes 2 (Trust in Trance) https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Telekiness-Different-Attitudes/release/851842 v.A. - Up To Next Steg (Goalogique Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Up-To-Next-Step/release/4704508 v.A. - Spiritual Rising (Ezel-Ebed Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Spiritual-Rising/release/2419621 v.A. - Psychedelicus (Goalogique Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Psychedelicus/release/6981522 v.A. - Vibraspirit 23 (Sundance Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Vibraspirit-23/release/282460 Omegahertz - Valsamon https://www.discogs.com/Omegahertz-Valsamon/release/3099117 Prana - Cyclone https://www.discogs.com/Prānā-Cyclone/release/445592 v.A. - Absolut Trancelucent (Trancelucent Productions) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Absolute-Trancelucent/release/908626 v.A. - Alternative Colours (Ezel-Ebed Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Alternative-Colours/release/1807688 Tripy & Mindstorm - Cosmo Sounds Volume 1 https://www.discogs.com/Tripy-Mindstorm-Cosmo-Sounds-Volume-01/release/1935854 DJ Vlado - Listen To Me Loud https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Vlado-Listen-To-Me-Loud/release/348525 Somnesia - Infinite Mind https://www.discogs.com/Somnesia-Infinite-Mind/release/12398719 Sykespico - Perspective https://www.discogs.com/Sykespico-Perspective/release/14317466 Cosmosis - Fumbling For The Funky Frequency https://www.discogs.com/Cosmosis-Fumbling-For-The-Funky-Frequency/release/1877292 v.A. - Magic Dew (Space Baby Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Magic-Dew/release/2026098 Somnesia - Sanctuary Of Stars https://www.discogs.com/Somnesia-Sanctuary-Of-Stars/release/5236812 DJ Vlado - Trancelvania https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Vlado-Trancelvania/release/523132 Frequency Surfer - Respect https://www.discogs.com/Frequency-Surfer-Respect/release/164568 v.A. - Rabbani (Hadra Records) https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Driss-Rabbani/release/484448 DJ Zen - Crysallyx II https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Zen-Crysallyx-II/release/1639054
  16. I'm kinda late but I have a CDr of that album, given to me by Nemo back in the days. I don't now the format of the tracks, most likely MP3s I suppose. But I can check for sure if you still need them.
  17. New stuff arrived yesterday and today: v.a. - Cosmic Guide (Goalogique Records Ezel-Ebed Records) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Cosmic-Guide/release/5184586 The compilation is nice but nothing too special. Besides the last track: GoaTree - Goaliens, what a bomb! v.a. - Pure Planet 4 (Dimensional Records) https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Chakras-Pure-Planet-4/release/2538509 Merr0w - Born Underwater (https://www.discogs.com/Merr0w-Born-Underwater/release/1678234) v.a. - Audioalchemists Klangstaubelixier (Zodiac Records) (https://www.discogs.com/Various-Klangstaubelixier/release/438216) another Swiss comp, again very nice tracks

  19. Ordered a bunch of new stuff over the last weeks: Day.Din vs. Fabio - The Unreleased https://www.discogs.com/DayDin-vs-Fabio-The-Unreleased/release/989419 Dharma Kaya - Full Service - The Russian-Israeli Full On Sound https://www.discogs.com/Dharma-Kaya-Full-Service-The-Russian-Israeli-Full-On-Sound/release/2027615 (I'm listening to it right now, seems to be a real gem; the first two tracks were fucking awesome) Mercury Fall - Gaiascension https://www.discogs.com/Mercury-Fall-Gaiascension/release/4563644 Miraculix - The Arrival https://www.discogs.com/Mercury-Fall-Gaiascension/release/4563644 Flexus - Christiana Selection Vol. 3 https://www.discogs.com/Flexus-Christiania-Selection-Volume-3/release/5506773 Rocky Tilbor - Goa Sessions https://www.discogs.com/Rocky-Tilbor-Goa-Session/release/8269015 v.A. - FullOn (HOM-Megta Produktions) https://www.discogs.com/Various-FullOn/release/184693 Andromeda - Temptations https://www.discogs.com/Andromeda-Temptations/release/250727 (ok, but the older albums were better) Bubble - Bootleg https://www.discogs.com/Andromeda-Temptations/release/250727 (nice album, Bubble has his own style) v.A. - Imagi:Nations Part 2: Day https://www.discogs.com/Various-ImagiNations-Part-2-Day/release/484687 Asia 2001 - Psykadelica https://www.discogs.com/Asia-2001-Psykadelia/release/6917485 (nice but not mindblowing) Afgin - Old Is Gold Selected Tunes (2006 - 2015) https://www.discogs.com/Afgin-Old-Is-Gold-Selected-Tunes-2006-2015/release/7277369 (very nice, the album he released on Suntrip Records was even better tho) DJ Ans - Wind Up https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Ans-Wind-Up/release/296019 (rather boring, I'm glad it was cheap)
  20. Seems like all the old farts are back... Ok not all but... @RTP I wouldn't call it a problem but it sure takes some time. So far I'm at the letter C. But I ordered a new CD stand and startet adding also the compilations. So I'm back at a listening to them to. It's lots of fun and I also started ordering CDs again.
  21. I'm re-listening my entire collection, so far I'm still at A. The latest Andromeda album was pretty nice, a bit popy but that's ok. Astral Projection's Amen was dull and boring, not as bad as I remember but bad enough. Ten is better tho but also not among my favourites.
  22. And still with all this shit that was happening to you you are still a very chilled person now, respect for that! I know a thing or two about close people dying but that's how life is I suppose. I hope you continue to Keep your head up.
  23. Yes and no at the same time. I always used to listen to different styles and I still do. I used to listen to way more goa and psy stuff back in the days and also bought a lot of releases. Nowadays I rarely buy psy or goa stuff and I completely lost the touch with the scene. Once or twice a year I stumble over a new artist or an album that I buy but it's all by chance. I also haven't been to a propper psy doof in years. Instead I'm into progressive/Techno/Deep House stuff. But also in those genres I go for the melodic (even cheesy…) and driving kind of tracks. Those are the same elements that I was looking for when I started collecting psy and goa records. I still can't appreciate too minimalistic music and I doubt this will every Change.
  24. Oh, some of the old timers are still (or again…) here… Thanks to the Corona Crisis I'm working from home now so I decided it's time to re-listen to the stuff in my Collection. I take it the lockdown will be over before I'm done with that but who knows. I'm still at the very beginning and listening to artists starting with A, my conclusions so far are: the first 1200 Mics album was rather weak in comparison to the other ones (they are awesome imho); I didn't appreciate Akanoid enough when I first listened to their Album, their sound is ace; I couldn't stand to listen to Ace Ventura's Rmx CD until the end (sorry mate!), Alternative Controle's first album is a blast; Amahata is great to (bought a double CD but never really gave it a try, what a shame!). Maybe I'll keep you updated… Oh and Afgin really is the master of neo-goa! Hi Mike D, you sound really chilled and down to earth! I'm happy to hear live is going well now for you.
