  1. How was ZNA ? That is a complex question A. First of all I'd like to start with a thought, or more of a feeling that emerged. This came to me firstly when I saw we all needed to queue for water in the heat (of the moment). I felt this might have been the most important moment for me of the entire festival. Queuing for the basic ingredient of life is a profound event, as water is not just an object, it is a necessity of all kinds. After this I was wandering during the night next to the lake and was gazing at the milky way. I pondered the following <3 ... - note: and listen to this track at the same time when you read the next text - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_uHa_PET9M "When I walked trough the dark places of my mind and the world, I saw humans coming together, as tribes or in villages of some sort. I could never rely to them: nor to their culture, nor to their habits. Yes, I could do so, but only too the one thing they had in common: living of the land, our mother, in big doses of respect. That to survive they created a coexistent-state of mind. In a non-egocentric need an urge opened, one to depend on each other. Queuing for water, queuing for food,... But than there came a time with more build up certainties. The people forgot they needed a prophet near the water fountain, one who proclaimed thusly: "Here thay find the element and mother of all life - share - and be one, and only one as one (really) is (in itself)!" When in the night, there he stood alone, I came across him. He gave me a swift look and uttered gently, like dry sand moves the desert: "When you are looking for the end of all things, go there!", lifting up his arm, pointing at the night sky, that was ribboned with stars and a lonely planet weaving its path trough it. I died peacefully in his arms..." B. Goods and bads: the GOODS + that main stage sound: very very good, balanced, clear and warm sound - I could just enjoy its quality so much; +being in some sort 'locked up mode' in the artist village most of the time: met great guys like 'Gabriel Le Mar', 'Alex' aka Boshke Beats, the guys from 'MFG' (Front 242 lives): we had the best musical and historical debates! - learned me a lot to reshape and remodel my label and our philosophy into the future; +fun'n games with Ray Castle + Meeting your dreamy and melancholic trance hero: X-Dream - the train rides on +Close encounter with the boys from Astral projection: "Trilithon lives!!!" <3 Avi Nissim, talk soon! My music is on its way +Beer with Tromesa (long time no see - his cocktail bar in Warsaw is amazing btw); +Funky psychedelic performances of: Portamento (say what?!), ColorBox (live altering old and new tracks like no one else did), Gabriel Le Mar, Juno Reactor, and the whole line up from the 'market stage'. A big <3 to all the dj's there, damned a psychedelic festival needs slower funky, sexy stuff!!! Alex, maybe call it the groove cave next time? - can I come 'n be a groove dj too? +Cool decorations (and an amazing, kind, splendid decorations team); +Nice food for the artists and an amazing kind food team! Big hugs. the BADS -the virus, no not the synth, that took me out 9-10 days (still counting); -in general maybe a bit more variation in music on the line up: as I stated before maybe this festival has the vibe to open up even more to a more broad variety of psychedelic electronic music, like we saw on the 'market stage'? Most acts play now only their old stuff and it is always a bit "fast" imo - why not go 'back' to the end 80s and mid 90s vibe and have a more complex approach of psychedelic music/beat ranges/...? -having to play for an empty dance floor (what a contrast with the former ZNA, where I was playing for at least 500/700 people on the guardians night :O ...could only fill it up again to 200 people, and than my body decided to shut down. C. People I'd like to thank are: -'Frederico Fernandes' (for booking 12h of 'Cronomi Records' music on ZNA and so believing in us) - see you next edition; -'Sara Marrecas' and 'Greg Staikos' for representing the label and our guarding goa's spirit; -'Ray Castle' for that special 3rd day and giggling; -'Wim Schepmans', 'Caroline Boermans', 'Tom Poez', 'Roger Janssen', 'Fabien Marsaud' (do I forget any one?) who were there to help me when I almost fainted during my dj set (due to my illness): you were very very kind <3 -'Color Box' and 'Portamento' by proving new music can rock the floor - and be so funky business!!! You guys filled the floor with groovy beats and funky baslines... -'Gordon Clone Brown' for being a great Canadian; -And the goa freaks (mostly Belgians) I had to chance to talk to: 'Robbe Caranthir', 'Aimen Itos' (Hallugen, we talk soon) and 'Yassine Alea' got to me the most!!! 'Greg Zna' for being such a kind person; - @ 'Jeroen Verley' to show me how complex playing with vinyl is -...and last but nut least: 'Jo Frère' for a splendid two conversations <3 - just because of it and your suppor to the label! -'Tiago Florindo' & 'Gonçalo Florindo' for being the sweetest brothers -'Guy Vaz Marle' for being helpful on the shuttles and actually laughing trough out the entire festival - no matter how tired -To those I might have forgotten: I'm still ill as f..ck - blame the virus <3 - I miss my belgian beer Any way: "Don't panic, keep it psychedelic" (dj Inada)
  2. To they who still doubt - that this is gonna be epic Why should you go to ZNA gathering? Even if you don't go 'Cronomi Records' has 7 names playing on the stages: That is 12h of music "Who are they???" A. MAIN STAGE: amazingly 2 magic Danish guys... 'ColorBox' & 'Bypass Unit' - with unreleased tracks, B. Goa Guardians: playing from the 90's, till now... 'Psara' & 'Greg Staikos', C. The Last day: 2 live acts and one dj... 'M-Run' (presenting his new album), 'Portamento' (with also unreleased tracks for a new album) 'dj Inada' (with 3/4 tracks of my own - made with M-run & Antares). Just saying - haha! Yes yes, doesn't only depend on us - lol! ...as so much mpre good music
  3. Not sure, but I know it is very very basic - so 'old skool' way :p I'll ask'm.
  4. Well, he did what you can expect what I'll be doing on ZNA festival: a 100% newer goa set - with the mind in the past and future This guy is great stuff!!! <3 ..and with good music - well it gives fireworks
  5. A. The story What happens when you invite a dj to listen to your music. You ask him if he likes it enough to make a dj set. We are talking about a dj that played 'trance' music in Goa (India) in both the beginning and mid 90's? So a guy who knows what 'goa trance' is all about What happenend? a) Well, he likes the music a lot b) And he makes a wonderfull set with 100% Cronomi music Big huggs for 'Djamstore Beats'!!! B. The dj says what...?! "I've been invited to make a mix with tracks from Cronomi Records only. It was an honor and it was a pleasure to do so. I am happy to know that there are some labels out there keeping the original Goa Party music alive. Rooted in the old school vibes, Cronomi releases music which is nevertheless fresh and new without just copying the past, but bringing the original vibes back into the present. There is continuity, a clear vision of musical identity and a specific "label-style". I love that. Buy the artist's stuff. They deserve it!" C. The dj set/track list (THX to all the artists who made it happen all over the years) 1. Jikkenteki With 11 - Super Power Mustard, 2. Pandemonium! - A Mad Scientists Night (Subra vs Felis Remix), 3.

  6. The best feedback I can give you is to get inspired by the quality of this album (and I mean this in a positive and constructive way) https://www.discogs.com/Bassline-Baby-Computer-Controlled-EP/release/45685
  7. A good album comes with a good story Have the music already, but I await this one too, can't wait
  8. There are no (fluent) melodies, because this album is almost 100% avant garde psychedelic techno Techno indeed hardly contains melodies, and that my dearest, was the whole point of the album ...so you've got it spot on! <3 The "melodic" part is formed in how the mixing is done...and yes, with nowadays productions, this is an album that probably needs o grow on you, because it stands out far diffrent than most of what is released #cronomistyle
  9. Every few months I delete my "old" mix online and post a new one to keep things fresh Here is a new one: a blend of '90's and newer melodic & psychedelic trance. I hope you can enjoy the journey as much as I did "Melodic Dance Of The Omicron" It contains some unreleased Cronomi material...

  10. Anjuna will soon sell them again; had straight contact with the guy who is managing the webshop: let us hope <3
  11. That "EthnoVibes Ambient" compilation is amazing: the avant garde value of it is imo one of the purest expressions of what we call goa trance. Thanks!
  12. Small detail: Bypass Unit and Color Box (well known here) are going to play much new and old unrl material in their sets. They are working on a new album for each project - happy-mode!!!
