  1. Toï Doï - Technological

    Ze cosmos trip is one of the most underrated goa tracks ever. I'm on a cosmos trip right now and sometimes it's what you need.
  2. Most inappropriate melodies or samples in psytrance

    Or the sample in Simply Blue which is a police report about a drunken and disorderly neighbour!
  3. Most inappropriate melodies or samples in psytrance

    To be fair, I think that during every 1200 Mics track... I think that's the idea!
  4. Psychedelic Horror

    Great recommendations judging from the ones that I've seen already. I'll definitely watch the whole set, apart from perhaps Begotten, which doesn't look like much fun. Based on your recommendation and that of a friend I saw Antibirth this week. It was great, just a shame that it had all the elements of becoming an AMAZING film but didn't quite hold together in the end. I mean, part of reason why I love this 'genre' is that the films don't necessarily hold together on a plot-level but manifest strong subconscious themes, however Antibirth also got tangled up in its subconscious symbolism, squandering the psychologically scarring power which its forebears (Rosemary's Baby and Jacob's Ladder) have. However I wouldn't be surprised if director Danny Perez comes up with a classic of the genre in 4-5 years time.
  5. Commercial psytrance?

    I don't understand how the intention of the artist can define whether something is commercial or not. For a start, we can't fully know the intentions of the artist. Some become commercially successfully without meaning to. I think it's qualities of the music itself that define whether something is commercial: such things as unchallenging rhythms, cliched melodies, overproduction, etc.
  6. What's some good Full On

    Some might find this too generic but I love the sound design from 3:30 onwards:
  7. Witchcraft - Magic Frequencies EP

    Magic Frequencies is astonishingly good, swirling analogue melodic layers dancing and warping in and out of each other, neither predominantly light or dark; an abrupt and spine-tingling pitch-bending ending.
  8. Morphem - Out Of Focus

    Such gorgeous production on this one.
  9. M-Run - Some Run Just For Fun

    Listening to this again the similarities with peak oldschool Etnica struck me, especially in the arrangements and peripheral sounds. Amazing goa album, one of the very best released in the last 10 years in my opinion. It's full of bouncy, funky energy, keeps catching you by surprise, and above all is a lot of fun to listen to.
  10. Best synths in psytrance

    Too many to list, but Pigs in Space Visitors springs to mind
  11. Power Source - Cosmic Waves

    I was wrong, Granada and Vorlan are also top-tier tracks! Orient Express is still king though
  12. Sonar ping

    No problem. It's sad what has happened to online forums. Five years ago, this lost tracks request would have been answered in hours...
  13. Sonar ping

    Jaïa - Breathing Ocean
  14. Psychowave - Dancefloor Metadata [Boom Rec.]

    I haven't checked this album yet, but I'm interested to hear reviewers say the tracks are poorly organised and don't really progress satisfactorily. In my opinion, Psychowave tracks like Moon Bindi (one of the very best goa tracks from the last 5 years!) and Supernova have some of the most psychedelic progression and flow I've heard in goa. Reminiscent of Koxbox in how lots of different colourful ideas are woven tightly together without big buildups or repetition. I'll be listening to this album and report whether I share the consensus view here.
  15. The Infinity Project - Mystical Experiences

    Did I write that? DoktorG, are you me? I couldn't have put it better.
