  1. Nice, you did it again :D By the way: most divers and psychedelic in Belgium for years!!! This is it mate... big hugs!!! For less money (than big hyped festivals) an amazing line up (and the location is cool too: last year was amazing).
  2. Update: the CD format is also available now Limited to 300 copies - be fast, because this is something very unique Link: https://cronomi.bandcamp.com/album/ufomatka-off-the-beaten-track-of-the-universe <3
  3. ...and here it is Buy your psychedelic candy here: https://cronomi.bandcamp.com/album/ufomatka-off-the-beaten-track-of-the-universe CD format released in 1/2 weeks
  4. July :) Pressing is busy. Update online (the shop) will be next week ;)
  5. Cronomi Records feels proud and overjoyed because after many years of very hard work Alex aka "UFOMATKA" (Ukraine) comes out with his d├ębut album. His musical flow follows the tradition of the avant garde and psychedelic trance/techno movement Samples: Tracklist: 1/ Transition to Hyperspace, 2/ City of Acid Trips, 3/ Sliders, 4/ Space Chronicles, 5/ Uss Enterprise, 6/ Nebula, 7/ Drifting Across the Universe, 8/ Voyager (leaving the Solar System)...chill out. Shop: http://www.cronomi.com/#Shop (release: juli 2018): 300 copies (limited edition).
  6. Is it me, or are the two tracks on CD3, namely "Fingers" and "Gilligan's Island" fucking amazing!!!!??? I mean: WTF!!! Both are on repeat for two weeks in a row now...I see no end soon.
  7. -A lot is happening, but in life some things - like planning releases - inter fear with new shaped schedules I have an extra masters degree philosophy I have to finish (for my job) and that takes up almost all my free time (which makes it hard to run the label as I used too with 2 releases a year + I hardly have time to dj too). That is why the pace is so slow (very frustrating, but in life one makes choices). -We have a full album coming up soon (check our facebook for updates in the coming week). We are test pressing now... -Later on we have 8 projects (hopefully 10) in the pipe line (from 5 are close to being finished or very near to completion). -BUT due to the fact we want to stay as 100% avant garde as possible (and within the newer realm of producers that is very hard #unpopular - lol!) our pace is always been very very slow I know, you know it

    Your Unpopular Opinion?

    One of the main reasons I guess (lack of investing time in the sound to be more like the avant garde/out of the box vibe of the past)... Plus, this cartoon is funny as hell!

    Ray Castle & Collaborators - Mystique of the Metaverse

    Normally I do not reply to reviews, but I have to do it now (please take no offence in my words, it is just my humble opinion after listening to this 'genre' for 20 years and numerous talks with Ray and many other psychedelic trance artists in the past decades). I'm not talking about the quality, style or what ever of these tracks, just about what they are and do (imo). These things are up to everyone to decide Apart from that, if you would take even more time to dig deep into the history of this 'genre', you'd realise a few things: a ) goa isn't a genre, it was called 'goa trance' by party organizers in the mid 90's in Goa (India) to attract people; so it was a pure commercial move to call it 'goa trance'. Detail: at that time all sorts of 'weird' electronic music was played at those beaches - info by Ray Castle himself. It is an illusion to pose goa trance started to exist only at the mid 90's, nope, the sounds capes we so adore came a live gradually (listen to some 'proto goa' sets from the early 90's and you'll hear what I mean). b ) That is why 'goa trance' could better be called 'avant garde trance' (quote by Ray Castle), and he is right: that is exactly what this music is all about. Fucking avant garde and out of the box: challenging the mind in a musical way. Goa therefore is a mind set to rethink electronic music to re-invent itself and NOT get stuck into a certain formula or sound scape. c ) So that taken in consideration the term(s) 'old skool goa' (and new skool goa) is (are) far from correct and is (are) utterly useless to determine what has been released here. (my personnel) Conclusion: this CD/album should be for everyone who wants to know about avant garde trance and wants to buy and support a wonderful project/artist/music! -Our minds are polluted with the idea goa is a genre and the fact that goa should sound a certain way: guess again Ray proves goa is a fluent, organic and non deterministic way to make psychedelic electronic dance music. Good thing to wake that up again Ray (and Suntrip): may it inspire more new artists to be more unique and utterly avant garde <3 ...and not just copy a existing sound without searching and using the 'basic' ingredients. -Our minds are polluted with the idea this 'goa trance' has to be melodic and that these (well distinguished) melodies should lay 'on top' of the music. No, melodies are found also here in Rays music, but in a more non obvious way we hear nowadays. Again, Rays music is about being unique, psychedelic and avant garde, and - surprise - this is what (how we call it today) 'goa trance' is all about. -Rays melodies are blasting and crazy...plus: this sound is far from 'early goa sound', it is the 'goa sound' from a certain period. Without the intention to be smart or arrogant...yours truly
  10. #nice btw: is this track "CD2 02 Mystical Appearance In Goa (Remix)" that very long version with the long intro?

    Best (Belgian) line up in years: so psychedelic. Finally again <3 Thanks mate for having us, glad to help you! First edition was legend, now we build the future
  12. Good news Direct sources are the best. Can't wait for the art work: very curious, cause Ray('s music) has a really avante-garde mind set Note: Ray told me some time ago all tracks on this album are going to be goa trance. Isn't all his music wicked?
