My review for Nibana: Shūmatsu No Tani The emotional intensities of Nibana’s deep and colorful universe are nothing short from profound in this multi-genre, psychedelic release, Shūmatsu No Tani. Offering an intimate connection into another realm, the intelligent innovations of musical craftsmanship can be explored vividly on a magnificent, two-hour adventure. As the dramatic sound of his latest masterpiece unfolds, vibrating beneath layers of complex melodies and detailed synth structures, a mystical dimension of breathtaking adventure is clear like thousands of stars shining over an ancient and mystical world… with a large touch of earth-shattering bass. Inspired from the heartwarming soundscapes of Solar Fields and the boundary-breaking reaches of bass music masters like Tipper and Whitebear, Nibana and a couple of other talented producers have created something for the history books with this captivating release. It is a mind-expanding dive into gooey psydub, intricate downtempo, and other electronica orchestrations impressively spread across both psytrance and ambient soundscapes. Prepare to be carried through a progressive, beautiful story told through sound, for it will likely be one of the best albums 2017 has to offer. 10/10
  3. Hehe, hey thanks! I haven't been to this site in a long time, but it still has a very special place in my heart. This website introduced me to my very first psytrance festival in Dallas, TX. Ever since then, I have been throwing festivals in Arkansas. 18 shows later, we get about 500 - 700 a fest. I live in Austin, TX now. Wow, how things have changed... I owe a very large part of my life to Psynews.

Every second is elegantly laced with heartfelt emotion and powerful energy; a combination of beautifully evolved textures, mystical melodies, and satisfying baselines that set the backbone for a progressive adventure into another world. Its interesting chapters make way for a truly captivating journey that stays ambitious throughout its diverse expressions. After twenty years of producing elaborate music, Solar Fields passion for crafting innovative soundworlds still shines strong, and his talents continue to blow us all away with this latest release. Magnus Birgersson has worked with meticulous detail behind every note to create something very special. Each track in this carefully orchestrated journey is filled to the brim with breathtaking action. Wave after wave, its colorful ocean of deep bass hums in the distance against an intense array of dreamy synths and complex pad arrangements. This unique composition beckons our ears to take a dive, and it is certainly refreshing to hear such awe-inspiring brilliance in todays musical industry. Prepare yourself to venture through the auditory stratosphere of a video game score like no other, for the fast-paced arpeggiations and euphoric breakbeats of Catalyst will leave you on the edge of your seat. Yes, it is that exciting. As if you too were free-running across the rooftops in the futuristic metropolis of Mirrors Edge, thrill and suspense is engraved within the frequencies of this lively, conceptual album. The charismatic instruments seem to carry a personality of their own, banding together to tell the epic story of an enthralling universe. This is pleasantly alluring, a gracious invitation to an ear-candy experience where the mind wonders off into other dimensions. It is incredibly easy to let go and get lost, making It the perfect companion to an open-world video game. The game itself is not required to have a good time, however. All you need to do is press play. Get up and dance or sit back and relax. Whatever you do, open your mind and close your eyes as these thirty-two tracks take you to another planet. Seriously, its going to be great. Solar Fields has created a work of art that musical lovers everywhere can praise, so turn on your sound system and get ready for an atmospheric voyage into complete and utter bliss. 10/10 All tracks are written and produced by Solar Fields
  5. I bought all of my music (500+CDs) for $400 from a good friend. That is all I have purchased this year. Throughout the decade, I have probably spent $600 or more, which isn't much over ten years! Most of the time, I get my music for free (CC Licensing) on Ektoplazm. Also, the labels I write for send me the releases for free anyway. I have about 180GB of music (MP3 320KBps standard, my top ten favs are FLAC). Most of the time I am giving money to my favorite labels by purchasing art from them or giving out donations. Recently, I started throwing festivals in Arkansas with a friend as my way of giving back to the community. It's all about recognizing the talents and appreciating their expressions!
  6. Various - Flux Trax would be great. Are you sure you wouldn't sell them instead? Why the sudden urge?
  7. A few psynews users and I are going to Atrium Obscurum: Bhaskaras Wheel. Check out the details below! Its a 100% Psytrance, three day fest. Its going to be awesome. https://www.facebook.com/events/455448327921761/ (oh and I'm playing there :3 )
  8. Do you know about their involvement with Parvati Records? They have a good handful of releases specifically for that label under a few VA albums. https://beatspace-parvati.bandcamp.com/track/derango-back-to-para-normal They post most of their solos on Soundcloud. Go follow them! https://soundcloud.com/derango
  9. There are quite a lot of incredible albums out there... I enjoy a lot of different styles. Here are ten of my favorites right here. The first three albums are over three hours long. Sanathana - HOMA Spruce - Origins Spruce - Ubkivad Omniheita CinderVOMIT - The Wizards Cauldron Electrocado - The Hass Effect VA - Haters Gonna Hate VA - Momento Demento VA - Through the Afterlife VA - Nine Spheres to Enlightenment VA - Opus Iridium

HOMA, a three hour psychedelic trance experience, does just that. It takes everything we know about music, puts it through an intergalactic space walrus, and crunches it up in this unexplainable burst of superb, colorful magic. Of course, he may not actually have his hands on a cosmic walrus with supernatural powers, but I would like to think this is the only sure way anyone could make something so brilliant. Yes, It sounds that amazing. HOMA is a engulfing, powerful creation with originality sewn into every stitch. Each track is fantastically diverse, offering Beats Per Minute (BPMs) from 145 to 200. The amount of content inside this release is nothing short from extraordinary, and can take the average listener some time to explore. With patience, this will reward any psytrance enthusiast. Sanathana takes the musical universe and twists it into an entirely new dimension without definition. Some may label this sound as “Psycore,” “Forest,” or “Darkpsy,” but the world he has erupted, truly, is influenced by his heart alone. There are many instances where there is no genre. This album presents a playing field full of innovation, churning up delightful, ear-candy surprises. As Disney’s little mermaid would say, it really is “a whole new world”. I could describe HOMA as a work of art, but I feel that isn’t accurate. A single piece of artwork almost underwhelms in comparison. I would bravely claim it, instead, as a sort of art gallery. I say this, for I see a multitude of pictures, each crafted with its own concept and meaning. Some of them are quirky, while others are almost terrifying. Paintings don’t typically spark any emotions for this particular individual, but they always make me stare and say, “hmm… now, that’s interesting!”. This release seems to promote a much heavier response, however. There was one track that literally had me laughing out loud and then tearing up just seconds later. Then, some weird gargooly zip-bob sprouted from underneath a layer of gooey bass stuff and I almost thought aliens were abducting me. Hmm… now, that’s interesting! No, aliens will not abduct you, probably, but if you close your eyes and pay close attention, you will be rewarded with a satisfying, personal journey. It is quite an incredible exploration, and certainly a living and breathing example of musical evolution. This composition is a major accomplishment in todays psy industry, which I feel will inspire a large number of works in the near future. As an ambient producer, I have been searching for inspiration. This album, even though it is on an entirely different plane, has sparked my imagination to no end. I am truly excited, and I can say it has been a real pleasure discovering this gem. Homa represents an array of themes, such as dark and light, balance and chaos, love and hate, yin and yang, and so much more. The background from Sanathanas culture in Dubai is present in the background, along with the chapters in his life. He has clearly been on a path for decades now, attempting to piece together his thoughts into the perfect form. One can say this album is a peak in his life. It is everything he has wanted to lovingly express from the very beginnings, where he would tip and tap at surrounding audio jargons for years until he got the sound just right. He passionately, delicately crafts everything from the ground up, and the results are legendary. Anyone craving discovery would be more than happy adding this to their collections. Put on your headphones and close your eyes. Walk through the forest, dance the night away, or do anything you feel like doing. Just do your brain a favor and listen, as you will likely fall in love. I think we all owe Sanathana a heart warming hug for this amazing accomplishment. HOMA is beautiful, a gift to us all, and I look forward to future releases with a similar, mind-opening experience that allows me to connect in ways I never have before. 10/10 All tracks are written and produced by Sanathana / Swaroop Guhathakurta Album Mastered by: Overdream Studio Album Art: Swaroop Guhathakurta / SGDesigns / Sanathana / Sanhata

  12. Interesting! Im glad to know there are many perspectives in this culture. I am throwing a festival in April in central Arkansas (400+ people) and am setting up an ambient/downtempo tent for people to escape the dance floor. Everytime these tents are setup, it turns into an opium den, lol. I totally respect the drug side of the culture, especially since much of it has been inspired from drugs, but I personally don't find any need in my experiences. I love the music for many, many reasons, and I simply don't need any substances to enjoy them. Although, perhaps one day, when the moon is full, and I am surrounded by friends in my psy family, along with my lovely girlfriend, I may do some shrooms... but don't count on it
  13. We are all safe here in the forums, but feel free to post anomously. Im curious ... Do you do drugs while listening to psytrance? If so , why? Personally , I have only smoked pot a few times, but other than thay ive never done anything else. I like the experience to be pure. Drugs arent a part of my journey yet. Are they for you?
  14. I am the only one who doesn't do drugs at these events. I find everything fucking hilarious.
