    Triquetra - Ecstatic Planet

    Wow! Biggest surprise of 2018 so far Without knowing anything about Triquetra before, I just assumed this was an old artist with a bunch of unreleased tracks from way-back-when, which only now got polished for 2018 and released It's very refreshing to hear something that sounds truly old school, as funny as that sounds... It''s rare that I come across an album in which I enjoy almost every track, a few more listens will determine some favorites Anyway great stuff, and I hope I get to hear it live some day!

    Morphic Resonance - Trip To The Stars

    I'm a big fan of Pleiadians and Morphic Resonance, but this album feels weird somehow. It's a great listen, yet I don't see myself playing any of these tracks over the originals when I'm in the mood for some Galactic Trance As a tribute, it's a great release and I'm sure Cristian had a lot of fun making it. It's just hard to add something new to music that has been burnt into our receptors for decades now. Although I must admit the rhythm section is one place that old Pleiadians could be better in (Meter being the exception, relentless fucking track), and the beats and breaks are much punchier and aggressive on the Remixes. I like. All in all, an excellent release on its own... just impossible to escape direct comparisons as its a remix

    Perfect Blind - Stratum

    Clouds, rain, wood stove and Stratum... the perfect soundtrack for this autumn Dark ominous synthscapes, but not devoid of rhythm. The overall atmosphere reminds me of Black Lung - The Coming Dark Age. Really hard to come by this kind of music... a truly special release!

    Resonant Warrior - AIYIA

    01 - League For Spiritual Discovery (143 BPM) 02 - Enchanted Forests (145 BPM) 03 - Code Insomnia (144 BPM) 04 - Shadow Of Doubt (144 BPM) 05 - Fate To Faith (145BPM) 06 - Durga Gayatri (148 BPM) 07 - Aurora Borealis (148 BPM) I think this one deserves a listen.Great storytelling, melodies and sound design. It never goes over the top, but delivers a fun psychedelic journey. I'm surprised not more people dig it, probably due to no label or promotion. Anyway, tracks 1, 3 and 5 stand out for me. Surprise release of 2016. Get it from Ektoplazm

    Morphic Resonance - The City Of Moons

    Fuck. This is excellent stuff... He's gone way beyond the "as good as Pleiadians" phase. I'm living off grid for the next few months without electricity, and this album gave me the motivation to get the solar panels set up ASAP

    01-N - Acid Experiment

    Raw Acid YUM Incubus, Groans, Implant are top tracks... very refreshing

    Mindsphere - Mental Triplex - Presence

    Holy shit! Well I really liked Patience for Heaven, but Presence is on another level! It's been a while since a new release had this sort of impact on me, and I haven't given it nearly enough listens, but already I can say that Inevitable Delusion and Alinside are the best new school Goa tracks I've heard in years. There's a very unique feeling of fresh nostalgia that seems to be carried in the music. Off to more listens

    Goa buying habits

    I went digital years ago. When I look at my old CD collection I feel like I'm looking at a pile of garbage All the energy and material that went into making a CD with case and booklet, then shipping it round the world... with the implied prerequisite that I have the necessary archaic technology to play it (which I rarely do these days). If only there was a simpler alternative I'm not trying to judge people that still buy CDs, but I realize that is exactly what I'm doing
  9. I'm not a huge fan of Nitzhogoa for home listening. The laser kicks, explicitly eastern melodies and high tempo are a little too in-your-face for my liking. It would be quite a different story listening to it at a party, with a full mind and body blast! Having said all that, I quite enjoyed this album Sound design is excellent, there are a couple of times when the synths sounded quite alien, fresh and really grabbed my attention Magnetic Force is a good example of this. This is quite refreshing in a genre where you can often anticipate the sounds. Other tracks I liked: Proto-Knowledge, Who We Are and Broken Music Box. At some points I heard similarities to Merr0w, which I like. Overall very nice release and one I hope to someday somehow listen to it on a big sound system

    more liquid dnb like this please

    Definitely For melancholy nothing beats The Upbeats And the last one might not be Liquid, but it's a dark rhythm killer

    Lovely music! Thanks for sharing For me Liquid DnB peaked around 2006-2007 with Hospital Records and Logistics in particular, so here is some stuff in that style
