  1. Desert Island Albums (GOA): Your pick

    Battle of the Future Buddhas - Twin Sharkfins Koxbox - Dragon Tales Sandman - Witchcraft Pleiadians - IFO Hallucinogen - The Lone Deranger Should be enough to fend off boredom...
  2. Swedish Masters

    As far as I'm aware Marcello Bonifacii who is behind the Encens and Aeternum projects is British. No relation to Subcouds either. I didn't know one half of Subcouds went on to be part of Vibrasphere, though. The things you learn from Discogs.
  3. What good is the world to anyone

    Every right implies a responsibility; Every opportunity, an obligation, Every possession, a duty.
  4. Life is competition

    Many have made the mistake of saying "Life is x" There's a reason why Psychopod left that question open. Life is a balance of impulses. Too much competition is not the way. Neither is too much co-operation. Each being needs independence too. Life is about finding the perfect balance, the threshold!
  6. Mark Day

    A fine member of this forum, manuser I believe, pointed me towards this guy. Normally I'm not the greatest fan of psytrance but this guy just gets it. Really, he does. Extraordinary sound design. Leaves you floating way out there. Psychotropical. Marvellous atmospheres. Now forgive me why I contemplate why he chose such a common name for this project.
  7. Khetzal - Corolle

    Don't forget Ganesh!
  8. V/A - Erta Alé

    I support the sentiment expressed upthread that Kapala is one of the best "new-school" goa tracks of all time. It's bouncy, cheeky, dynamic and psychedelic. Wonderful work.
  9. Psychedelic Horror

    Jacob's Ladder Hellraiser: Hellbound Dark City Altered States Beyond the Black Rainbow Santa Sangre
  10. Etnica - Plastic

    Back in February I still didn't appreciate this one as much as I should have done. A real psychotropic grower.
  11. PharaOm - Tesseract

    "There is no god" is such an interesting sample to throw in at the psychedelic climax. It's an affirmation of NEGATION as opposed to the liberal sprinkling of various deities and mythological invocations and visuals that accompanies classic goa climaxes. Yet it's such an elated negation. It is saying, "who needs god to enjoy themselves?", as you climb that melodic staircase to neogoa psychedelic nirvana. PharaOm is without doubt one of the top artists releasing goa trance recently. This is a great release but Under The Sun Of Goa is even greater IMO!

    Damn, I knew I shouldn't have clicked on this topic...
  13. most talented artist/band in the scene?

    Taika-Kim, that's an excellent breakdown! It does indeed sound like you are describing Simon Posford's productions, particularly early Shpongle. Yet I would go further... The music goes so far beyond satisfying just that criteria, that it becomes amazingly FUN. It is a joyous journey that is PLAYING or TOYING with your subconscious. And Posford makes it seem so effortless. That's true talent.
  14. this makes me happy

    Wonderful, whereabouts in Belgium is this?
