  1. Oi mate! I, like many others, initially didn't check this one out. It's the harsh, continuous reality of getting information overflow in our brains - we filter out so much, and I was already so close on missing a diamond. I want to congratulate you for a really well done album! The fact alone that these tracks were done in 10 years span tells me you're a dedicated person. You're the best post-y2k artist to emulate that famous Pleiadians sound. Kinda curious you'd remix such an underground artist as Mantis but glad you did as that track turned out to be my favourite if one needs to be pic
  2. Some of the compositional elements sound a bit off on the 145bpm version. I'll vote for the original.
  3. It was really fun... my pleasure.
  4. We recently had our annual Aikahattu party here in Finland, I spun some darker old school - kinda similarly to the last year. The mix contains tracks by Hux Flux, Logic Bomb, Noma and the likes.
  5. Thanks Mentaloscope. Keep an eye out for the next album it's right now being mastered.
  6. Only took about 400-500 hours (probably more) and 6 months but I think the last track is ready now. Time for mastering... I got a great cover art ready as well!
  7. Sure! 1) Hallucinogen sound of the 90s. Does that need further explanation? 2) Yahel-esque stuff he did in the beginning of his career around 2000. Clubby goa with borderline cheesy melodies, he carried such class in his melody work one is hard to reach that. 3) Tech-trance that came out around y2k. Tracks such as 'Atmos - The Only Process', 'X-Dream - Thorazin' or 'Etnica - Andromeda'. Oh boy, would it be nice to hear more bangers like that, it's just not the fashion anymore!
  8. Thanks for kind words mate, it's appreciated.
  9. Hey AP, I do music under the alias Sab Kuch Milegator.
  10. I'm missing colorful, story-telling 10+ min tracks... rest assured, they're rare to hear because they're difficult to make. There needs to be coherence within the change and it's actually difficult to achieve without some level of conceptual thinking. It's exactly these sort of threads on Psynews that initially sparked the flame to start composing. My personal vision can only be materialized by me. In fact, I'm gonna open my FL and try to come up with final melody to the last track of forthcoming 4th album.
  11. I immediately thought of this one... pure brilliance.
  12. One factor is, that many people have lost connection to themselves and people around them. All our great values, like love and honesty for example, have already long time ago been utilized and thoroughly raided by the capitalistic system. Nothing seems to be sacred. Life feels shallow and we seem to have incredible haste as a civilization to go forward. I do enjoy the very concept of progress yet the question remains, at what cost? One of the very goals of our lives should be happiness and most of us do seem to favor a bit more relaxed pace to achieve that. If the society at large needs a
  13. Lots of social factors come at play when you try to figure out how "the scene" came to its current standards. 90s was a period without internet, or at least the social media was non-existing. You'd just do your thing, with no need for constant attention seeking or self-promotion. You'd sit in whatever psyhole you had there, compose, play at a party and the feedback would occur the natural way, via real human contact. These days you need following, likes and what not - it's all virtual though. And hey! You can also buy the likes, psyscene is under capitalistic law like it or not. All that
  14. Psytrance! Just think about the word for a while... there's a lot to this term that is yet to be heard. However, the mainstream artists are, in my humble opinion, not the ones who I look to see whether there's some progression happening or not. (Because it's a little bit about the money and that kinda kills the best vibe of any artist). In the end I think if it's about a human being expressing his/her soul.... we'll always get to hear something fresh and new every once in a while. I couldn't tell when and where however
  15. I've become a C:G:C: as in conservative goa co*k... I do listen to stuff outside goa/psytrance territory, yet with house etc. it also leans towards the golden 90s.
  16. My internal computer can't process this phenomenon. I'd say there are quite many people, if we'd like to talk about the big masses in this case, who simply only understand and enjoy the most primitive part of the track - kick + bass? All the psychedelic sweeps is just unnecessary garbage for them... Yet it's kinda understandable - K, B & PsyFX combo usually isn't that deep, musically interesting concept that it'd move the hearts of many, yet it serves as the perfect easy flowing fuel for one's drug filled dance rituals.
  17. That's indeed a horrible example of bad mastering. I think quite a few of these tracks would be great to play/hear in sets but, as things are, I'm going to pass.
  18. Here's my 2c: Psychedelic trance music is, within a track, often a journey. The very aesthetic is that the tracks are usually 7+ minutes long following a certain philosophy of drama. It is thought/expected that the tracks end with a bang. No self respecting DJ would mix out the track before the best part, that's obvious no? We pretty much have a genre where technical "grandeur" is hard to show in your sets as there are such big gaps between the tracks. I won't go into detail, but techno and house music, widdem big starz, have more "use the tracks as tools" philosophy and it's just bound t
  19. Thanks mate. Yeah no doubt on that one I've been keen to have it for years now.
  20. I rarely do massive purchases like this these days, but an eBay seller had all these great CDs available and I couldn't help myself! Interlect 3000 - Electric Allsorts Koxbox - Re-Oscillation maxi-CD Spectral - Celtic Alchemy maxi-CD Sandman - Psycho Toons UX - Ultimate Experience Transwave - Hypnorhythm EP Finally... Koxbox and Transwave collections complete
  21. The new modern style of producing/mixing is to make the kick very punchy/compressed. It's a tad too much for my taste although the 'big crowd' is into it I suppose. I wouldn't say the modern approach is by any means what I consider the best. I'd go for something a bit more open, dynamic and perhaps quiet. What I myself like a lot is the Swedish wave of early y2k (Atmos, Logic Bomb, Noma) that were mastered at Tom Puss Point Studios. Perfect Sound!
  22. Just won a bidding auction on Ebay for Deviant Electronics - Brainwashing Is Child's Play. 18 euros not bad...
  23. The Etnica re-release would've been in the top 10 surely have I voted... but I decided not to, mainly to prevent myself from voting my own album (haha yes I like my own music ). Still glad to see it in top 10, only self-released one and with next to no promotion... thanks for the support guys and cheers to the other top tenners you deserved it.
