  1. 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!
  2. Just won a bidding auction on Ebay for Deviant Electronics - Brainwashing Is Child's Play. 18 euros not bad...
  3. 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.
  4. Ra's album is old school and some of 'To Sirius' tracks have been produced as early as 96/97. I'll let you have your opinion on Synsun but would like to point out they also made two albums in 99 & 00 which have similar tracks to the one you mentioned.
  5. A couple years since I spinned this... classic goa.
  6. If I may speak for my behalf... let's say I release a self-released cd then I reckon it should be closer to 80 minutes. But that's just me! I still appreciate albums like Morphem's 'Out Of Focus' even if it's little over 60 mins... although never really understood why there must be an edited versions of 'How Can U B So Sure' and 'Closed Sector' on it... frustrating!
  7. It's a hard question! Could there be #1...? I'm inclined to say, however, that it's Ubar Tmar's 'I'm Shocked (Live Mix)' which is unreleased. You will find a shorter edited version of it on youtube that's around 9 mins long.... however, the real length for this track is more than 10 minutes. I couldn't believe my ears when 'Early Fusion' was released on Zion604 and had the original mix of this track on it - so average! Maybe even boring if I may address myself honestly here. How could the live mix be so much better? But it is. I've had talks with Draeke and maybe, if the stars are in right position, we could release the live mix soon as well.
  8. It's just evolution of a certain music style... don't think there's a point where you'd be able to pinpoint an oldschool track from a "neogoa" one precisely. Analog vs. digital may be the factor that gave this genre a certain leap into something new though.
  9. Eeeh... a bit too glitchy for my taste but I definitely see where you're coming from! Their whole catalogue seems A-class and particularly 'Giraffe' has striking similarities to COTB, just as you said. Thank you for sharing.
  10. Yes 'Ultraviolet Frequencies' indeed mate! I do like one of the hoodies and the mug's sweet as well... I'll support u guys just need a bit of balance on my paypal account first. Can't honestly believe you recorded Sirius Sounds in 14 days? Talk about real musicianship... it takes 1-3 months for me to just finish a single track.
  11. I don't have the physical releases but managed to get a rip of the cassettes nevertheless. On them I find couple really strong tunes that should be released: Cosmic Flash Ultraviolet Catastrophy Ultrascope Inflight Trance Maybe a few others to go with those? You'd have a buyer here!
  12. Nice to hear from u guys. 'Sirius Sounds' might be my faourite psy-chill album from the 90s! I do also have all the tracks from the two "untitled" cassettes you once made. There's a couple nice tunes on those as well... any chance you'd release more material from those days?
  13. Go for old Imaginary Sight, he made some splendid music. Taigan Sunset from Sweden is good too... But in all honesty, as far as my standards go, there is so much to what the term 'Forest Goatrance/Goa Foresttrance' has potential to be. These days it's quite one dimensional music for the most part and doesn't really resonate with the word 'forest' at all. But 'Sir Kuch' () is on the mission rest assured...
  14. You're right I checked it. I do have the track in my collection and now that I searched it turns out I've got it under the name '? - Morphic Resonance'
  15. As a whole I reckon there's no doubt 'Cosmology' is his best album. It's one of the most perfect goa albums made. 'Synergy' is a bit of hit and miss for me, yet it does have his best track on it - which would be 'Spores From Space?' 'Howling At The Moon' would take the 2nd place.
  16. Yes it seems something went wrong with the youtube link... There's a lot of material I could rip, there's some Finnish guys out here that haven't digitized their DATs yet. The problem is I haven't got a DAT player and, although I'm interested in preserving the old goa stuff, my interest isn't big enough to validate a purchase of one. But surely, I'll let you know if at some point I'd have this particular track in my hands.
  17. Funny but it's been years when I talked to a fellow Finnish DJ about this track and, in particular, its remix. I always thought he was talking about an unpublished rmx but now that I saw him again a couple days ago, turns out, the released 'Magma' is more or less a rmx (or re-worked version) as the version he has on DAT is the 'original'. He reckons the 1st version's better... I haven't heard it myself but maybe, if all goes well, sometime in the future I might be able to rip it.
  18. That definition of forest psytrance sounds somewhat wrong - to say the birth of the first wave of forest trance is directly linked to Schlabba is cutting the corners. It's a lazy approach if you want me to put it bluntly. That's because the 'early forest sound' existed many years before y2k. Of course, if we wanna discuss the Schlabba thing a bit and give credit where it's due, it can be mentioned Ka-Sol and BOTFB were and still are active in forest parties and the very evolution of the sound. However, how both producers sounded in the very beginning of their careers, is just very close to classic goa in my books. Only Schlabbaduerst, afaik, was ever doing 'industrial forest sound' I'm not sure if that itself is enough to talk about this little niche as the other 'major trend'. I guess what we can argue about is the very aesthetic what forest is.... but if you allow me to express my opinion, then I'd say I see it as music with weird soundscapes and quirky melodies - something that started, in larger numbers, to exist around 97-98-ish and some fine examples of it are Katayama - Hyperwhirler / Tripfield 0-Logic (1998) Hux Flux - Motor / STP Something (1998) Little Blue Men - Jedi Smurf - Blah Blah Machine (1997) VA - Tales From The Forest (!) (1998)
  19. Yeah it's indeed a great 120bpm-ish downtempo goa. Very glad to hear you like it as well! Let's go for a serious pick
  20. I might have to excuse my drunken-ness (?) a bit but seems like a only a few of the very many answers are truly home-runs... I mean I could just as well post this and get away with it.
  21. I apologize my laziness to check and compare, but if my memory serves correct the title is 'TIP - Acid Cuts' (unreleased)
  22. What a lucky find! I'd never thought of owning this album due to the ridiculous price. But a local Suomisaundi guy sold me NM copy for 50e...
  23. Connect Ohm's 9980 on Ultimae is deep without being pretentious. Maybe check that one out?
  24. They were awesome - I find they had patience to build the tracks in almost unrivaled fashion. I can't agree with Sam about 'Create Your...' being their only melodic standout though! How about? or...
