  1. Remember Son Kite?

    Hi there, long time no see So I was listening John Digweed's Transitions and he started the show with a Sebastian Mullaert remix of Moby... I kept thinking "now where did I hear that name before??" then it came to me: aaaah, this is none other than Son Kite... I didn't even think he was still into music making these days. Well, thought I'd share it with you, I really like it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GqVKIUvf5E
  2. Yep, we've spotted the trend for a few months now, and it's finally here: psytrance played on the mainstage of Ultra Miami... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWYERsYZFxc
  3. I'd definately recommend Space Safari as a spring-time warm-up for bigger festivals. Great atmosphere, friendly people, good music. But if you want to go all-in, then I'd say Ozora, like Squid said, the main advantage of big festivals is that there are loads of scenes and there's a little something for everyone, you never get bored. Now the main disadvantage with going all-out to a great festival from the start is that once you go to smaller venues after that it feels a bit dissapointing (presonally I've stopped going to small parties all together because I find them too boring compared to big festivals...)
  4. So there we go...mainstream EDM goes psytrance

    Umm it has oriental melodies, rolling bassline and triplets... It pretty much has all the trademarks of psytrance IMO
  5. So there we go...mainstream EDM goes psytrance

    and BTW speaking of Hilight Tribe, yes THE Armin Van Buuren has just made a collab with them... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yo4pmauhugo
  6. So there we go...mainstream EDM goes psytrance

    yep, it actually bares some similarities with this classic, which made me even more suprised to hear it on daytime radio: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqa8tevk3h8
  7. So there we go...mainstream EDM goes psytrance

    haha I was just about to post something in the same lines and saw this Yep indeed, psytrance is "in" once again. KSHMR is pretty big and he basically does goa-influenced EDM and lately there is this track that is getting more and more airtime on daytime radio in these parts... yes, psytrance on DAYTIME commercial radio! Who would've though that day would come? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NejMwMeZyag Well ok, to tone down things a bit let's not forget that most of the golden days goatrance period ALSO saw (not-so) underground producers like AP - People Can Fly or MWNN - Teleport on mainstream dance shows... which is how many people in the 90s hear of goatrance in the first place.
  8. 1 Infinite Power 8:28 2 Twisted Mind 7:20 3 Howling At The Moon 7:31 4 The Awakening 7:04 So after an *ahem* mystical experience last weekend, Scatterbrain's track Mexican Jesus came to my mind as clear as day even though I haven't listened to it in years and years. When I got home, I took out Infernal Angels and gave it another listen and was amazed by how fresh it still sounded after more than 10 years! So I started looking around if he ever made a second release and he did. Amazingly this was pretty low profile (well, I guess that the people who were into Infernal Angels when it came out aren't really into the scene anymore so I'm not surprised). Anyway, I was blown away by this, it is much more morning-oriented than Infernal Angels, pretty melodic and very few twisted sounds that were his old trademark. I don't know if people into his old sound will apreciate it (or even if they still care to listen to it), but personally, I like it a LOT. Twisted Mind is my fave one here, morning trance the way it should be done, not too commercial full-on, not too progressive, not too neo-goa, just no-nonsense good melodies and trancy ambience. The Awakening is also very melodic, there even is a singing sample in there, that makes it sound almost EDM, not sure if purists will appreciate it but personally I loved it! Definately one of the most undersetimated releases of the last few years! Alas no "Mexican Jesus pt.II" but definately give this a try 4/5
  9. Scatterbrain - Infernal Angel

    AGREED! This wekend I was umm... "down there with the dna watching the dino" And this track just came back to my memory like it was yesterday yet I haven't listened to it in YEARS! Took the CD out of the shelf, wiped off all the dust and maaan, it still sounds so good and fresh! Definately one of the absolute CLASSICS IMO!
  10. Night Hex - Viziuni Nocturne

    First of all when I listened to it I was a bit WTF?? I remember that Suntrip promised us a new wave of night-oriented acidic goa, and somehow I thought this would be it, given the name and cover... However it is not at all the case, which, after a few more listens, I have decided is not necessarily a bad thing. I would describe it as some sort of crossblend between newschool and progressive, I get what Trance2MoveU is saying with the dancing bit although in reality the music FEELS slower than it really is (BPM-wise we are pretty much in the 120-130 BPM range aka progressive territory) . Personally I find that the intro track is the PERFECT track for driving in the evening and watching the sun set... the kind of track you listen to and start wandering off, forgetting you're listening to something in the first place, feeling wierd and then all of a sudden once it's over you just realized almost 10 minutes have passed without realizing it. I must admit that I haven't felt that in a LONG time! I must admit that while listening to it the term "new beat" came to mind: the long lost art of playing 45 RPM records at 33, giving it a hypnotic feel... maybe the evolution in music has come around full circle again? I would be happy if it did.

    out on DVD now in case someone wante to see it
  12. Sunburn Goa Festival?

    hi there, Was a bit surprised to see quite a lot of talk (on mainstream media) about a festival in Goa called Sunburn, it even has its own theme song and everything (kindof like Tomorrowland and Ultra). Of course I suppose there is no psytrance present there... was wondering if anyone has any more infos on this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlJAiwwGHMg
  13. Denshi Danshi - Fluid Dynamics

    ummm well, I don't want to come out as some grumpy old man who always complains but... once again we get the "more of the same Suntrip neo-goa formulaic stuff"... Ok, on a positive note, the intro track Dancing Shiva is a DANCEFLOOR KILLER!! (no, really ) The tension-release around 4:00 OMG!!! If that echoing-synth sound gave me goose-bumps. Ok, I haven't listened to much psy in 2015 but form what I've listened I can easily call this the track of the year. Proof that there is still room for surprise in a genre that is more than 20 years old Well, too bad the rest of the album isn't like that (or maybe just that the bar was set so high by the first track that the rest seems pretty forgetable). Honorable mention goes to Mars Base Alpha where the artists seem to (finally?) realize that good goa doesn't always have to be ultra-fast and over-the-top to work, just having a slower pace and a mysterious atmosphere can also do wonders And last but not least, the return of the mandatory down-tempo album closer Kraft Karamel. Hmm, not bad at all I must say, some nice acid lines which sound soft and agressive at the same time, I really like this one a lot. So, basically you have one absolute killer track, one good but not great one and one very good downtempo track, among pretty forgetable generic-sounding filler material. Still, those 3 tracks are definately worth buying the album IMO 4/5 PS thanks Trance2MoveU for letting us know what is a Mugwump

    Hi y'all! Just stumbled on this totally by chance... an actual Belgian movie (not documentary) filmed at Lost Theory festival! How crazy is that? I guess it must've got a very low-profile release since I didn't hear about it at all. Anyone seen it? Not expecting much, but it would be cool to see how they made it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=deBr1X0EU9w
  15. Are you ready for the Blend Test?

    oh ok, well I hope you guys had some fun trying to recognize the tracks anyway
