  1. Yeah, I didn't draw the parallel to Felipe for nothing, it's the same really. The music is stellar, the guy behind it... not so much!
  2. He's literally been filling the Hypnotic LFO Room Bandcamp with his stuff these days: https://thehypnoticlforoom.bandcamp.com/ Not sure what to make of that post, he's probably still fine with taking "those people's" money, but whoever has bought stuff off his Bandcamp better download it before he pulls a Santos.
  3. I've been digging in those old folders where I still have some tracks left that I never bought since discovering back in the early 2000s [1] but am still looking to. I stumbled on this one that I have labeled as "Bamboo Forest - Joystick", and recently memo604 have released Bamboo Forest on Bandcamp. Well, turns out that label is wrong (as are many files that I still have from the filesharing days). The style certainly fits, but I couldn't identify this track among the memo604 releases, so chances are it's a different artist even. This sample contains only 30 seconds, but it should be enough to identify for any of you who know it. I'll remove it once identified): I like it a lot, does anybody know it? [1] Feel free to judge, but in the past decade I've been catching up by collecting around 200 CDs plus plenty of digital releases. It takes time!
  4. Bandcamp: https://goasia.bandcamp.com/album/landed-on-wrong-planet I'm not much of a reviewer, but I want to leave this here. So Spacedock Records released the latest 10-track Goasia album in June, without many fanfares as far as I have perceived. Nonetheless, I purchased it immediately, but wasn't really sure what to expect. I absolutely loved his early work (Purple Energy 2, From Other Spaces) very much more than his later work. I listened to the samples, I listened to the full CD at home, it didn't click at first. Yesterday I had a longer car drive with nice sundown and I thought Goasia would be a good idea, so I put this in the CD drive (yeah, oldschool). It was a very good idea! His style became a lot more progressive in a way that I like a lot (don't confuse the term "progressive" with the YSE style garbage). The individual tracks are definitely not groundbreaking, but none are even close to bad, and the flow of the whole thing is nothing but amazing! It's very cheesy here and there, reminded me a bit of Nitzho (especially that thing in "Yes, We Are"), but Goasia embedded it very well and it always feels just right, never too much. He's also done a notably good job on the basslines and overall sound effect scape, which tends to be extremely monotonic in most newschool releases nowadays. Overall, this is one of the better newschool releases in my recent memory and I recommend giving it a try!
  5. Not forgotten at all, but the mastering was horrid. I'm happy it gets its well deserved second shot!
  6. If the style is any close to his Field Quanta or Reed Voyage tracks, this is a must-have and I'm already missing it!
  7. So good to read! Next step is get him to play sets...
  8. Being original in this genre today isn't a small task, but the two Piets definitely are! One is a member of Quantum Fantay and you can definitely hear that in parts, which is beautiful. The other one is easily one of the most creative persons I know and has evidently studied the music on dancefloors all over the world for a long time. There's so much knowledge and creativity in this album that even though it's still very early, I believe that it's one of the most authentic goa trance albums of the decade. Hats off, guys, honestly!
  9. I consider this but an ad slogan, because this album is definitely 100% Battle Buddha material as I know and love it. And this is actually very good news, I wouldn't want it any other way! If you like Buddha's sinister-ish melodic tracks, there's more where that came from, and it's found on this album!
  10. This is pretty good! I'm puzzled about Neuron Shift though. The aggressive-ish synth starting late in minute 6 is completely off the beat, and its extremely bad at minute 8. Sounds like mixing two tracks with CDJs and one track is that tad bit off and tempos don't quite match either. Is this intended? It definitely shifts my neurons, in an unpleasant way though.
  11. That is actually the funding page - PayPal's money pools seems to be their answer to crowdfunding.
  12. Thanks for the support so far y'all! I put some samples on SoundCloud and included them in the main post, some may prefer that.
  13. Hah, this explains why it would appear BELOW the other EP in the discography. Fixed it, thanks! So yeah folks, it's released: https://veasna.bandcamp.com/album/horus-charm-ep

    Thanks for the review. Very glad you enjoy... mostly! I usually don't comment reviews because I'd like them to stand like they are, but: This is very subjective of course - I love noisy claps! Granted though, these are pretty prominent. Now I wonder if they're maybe simply too loud or do you think they should be exchanged altogether? I'll gladly build a version with different claps, would be an interesting variant.
