  1. That is actually the funding page - PayPal's money pools seems to be their answer to crowdfunding.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

    Veasna - 5ynergy

    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.
  5. Thesis is passed, I'm already officially master of science and going for PhD starting in April. That means I can work let be work and no longer have struggle with all that stuff in my private life, so there shall be room for moar Veasna! My very first gig was in Croatia and Vesna is a very common name there... I became immune to this joke quickly.
  6. On March 3 (yikes, that's tomorrow!) I'll release I released two mostly unheard tracks of mine produced in 2018 as a short EP on my Bandcamp: Get on Bandcamp Both tracks were in a near-done state for the Spectral Flux album, but I felt that they didn't fit the rest really well. The first track, Horus, I would describe as heavily Ra-influenced, even though I only really noticed that while composing the melodies. But indeed, that lead to the name and also cover art . So if you like to think in categories, it would probably fall in the Suntrip-esque "newschool" category, which may be a bit untypical for my sound . Charm may remind you of Wormhole from my album, the vibe is also a bit mysterious but overall happier I'd say. More oldschool-ish sound than Horus, but fitting the overall atmosphere. With this EP, I'd like to close a the second "chapter" of Veasna if you will. I see how the way I compose, arrange and produce music is changing, similar to how it did between the Energy and Spectral Flux releases. So whatever comes in the future may sound somewhat to a lot different, I don't dare to make predictions! Samples: By the way: Those who supported my campaign for the 5ynergy EP and replied to my message will receive a free download code for the EP. Again, many many thanks! It certainly failed because of my lack of advertisement, but the release fell in the major working phase for my master's thesis and I wasn't prepared for a CD release - it was a very spontaneous endeavour after @thanosp81 approached me with the idea. I simply couldn't put the amount of energy in it that I would have liked . Anyway, Kickstarter is extremely sensitive about backer information - which is good. However, that makes it impossible for me to just give an individual key to every backer. I received a few e-mails, but for those who didn't do it, please send me a mail or PM here on the forum!
  7. Thanks for supporting guys! Really! Sorry I've been promoting it pretty sparsely, holidays sure don't help I guess? But that doesn't mean it's too late. I'll try and put more energy into this the coming days!
  8. Thanks guys! Time is getting spare on this indeed, may not have been the best choice to do this over the holidays in combination with my naturally little promotion? May take a little miracle to get this done now, but hope dies last. Do tell a friend!
  9. Veasna turns 5 years old! In late 2013, I started the Veasna project with one thing in mind: make people jump around on trancefloors! Knowing the genre for a decade already, only that year I started visiting my first parties and the feeling totally captured me in plenty of ways. I started to try and channel these feelings and that energy into music, which I have been making for a long time already but without any real "goal" behind it. The result was Veasna, and I met relatively quick success - only one year later, Neogoa Recordsreleased my probably most famous track Quantum Conundrum. In 2016, I found myself having produced enough music to fit my first full-length album, Energy. Now as it is with releases, not all tracks I had by then made it to that album. As it so happens, this time of the year, Veasna turns five years old. So I feel it's time to get a few more of those tracks out into the world! Making the EP a full-length CD album The 5th Anniversary EP is a free digital release, so what's the deal with this campaign? It just so happens that the goa scene still has some CD collectors, myself included! So the main idea behind this is to get the release on CD. However, five tracks would be pretty few for a CD, right? So why not make it a full-length album, additionally containing all previously released digital-only Veasna tracks with some new production? Now we're talking! But because that still wouldn't fill a CD, we add the missing piece that's an unreleased downtempo track, keeping the spirit of previous Veasna albums, closing it on a slower pace. If you would like to support, please consider supporting my campaign:
  10. I'm happy to announce that I just released the EP on Bandcamp here: https://veasna.bandcamp.com/album/5ynergy-5th-anniversary-ep! I will post about the Kickstarter (here: https://kck.st/2zyUZr0) in the Crowdfunding Projects subforum (EDIT: done).
  11. Very glad to read, thank you! I believe it's time to publish the outcome of our private conversation. thanos and I talked about that idea and he kindly pointed me in some possible directions to go. Thanks! So also on December 1, I will start a 31-day Kickstarter campaign to possibly extend the EP to a limited full-length CD. Additionally to the EP tracks, that would contain all my previously released digital-only tracks (Quantum Conundrum, Warp, Dendrites and Silent Spring) with improved production, plus a new downtempo track to close it off in Veasna fashion. The Kickstarter campaign would be the only way to ever get that CD, so it's meant for collectors and supporters. Though, whether it happens or not will depend on the outcome. This doesn't affect the digital EP, which will still be five tracks and free for the entire month of December while the campaign is going. So one could also view it as a "demo" of sorts.

On December 1, I will release 5ynergy - a 5th Anniversay EP that contains five tracks, four of them previously unreleased and one heavily improved. All of them have been originally produced in 2013 and 2014 - my first year on the project - so expect music roughly in the style of Energy. The release will be exclusive to my Bandcamp (which I'll put up very soon) and will be free on a "pay something to support me if you like" basis for a bunch of weeks for the entire month of December as a Christmas gift of sorts.

  13. I love early-to-mid-2000s psytrance kickdrums. Short and sweet, not taking too much space in the spectrum but still delivering a somewhat "funky" feeling and enough pressure. Examples:
  14. I remember it was an instant-buy when I first stumbled upon it. However, I gotta say it didn't age too well. Track 6 ("Distant Echoes") is the perfect example for what my issues are with this album... this starts off MASSIVE, like really, the first 5 and a half minutes are pure bliss and some of the best trance I know. Atmospheric intro, very powerful driving kick and bassline, melodies building up slowly and everything that's added makes perfect sense. I'm not a big fan of vocals, but here they just fit and work extremely well. Starting at minute 5 is frankly one of my favorite melodies in all of goa trance. But what happens then? Going into minute 6, it appears the artist was all out of ideas and what's supposed to be a "turn of events" (I guess?) just feels out of place and also too cheesy for my likes. This track is really begging to be remixed (J.I.S. or Ephedra come to mind )... Anyway, that was for one track. In summary, good stuff on this album, but it could be a lot better. That also goes for the audio quality, which isn't the greatest at all.
  15. Nice to see a review of this here. This is really a gem dug deep into Ektoplazm waiting to be found, surprised me in a very positive way back when it was released. The atmosphere is extremely well laid out, it's an interesting progressive approach to dark psychedelic music (no, not "darkpsy"...). Can't really be compared to anything I know (hence the title?), and don't let that description scare you away if you're into goa trance, it's definitely worth checking out! Good stuff for night to dusk times. Downside is that some tracks get a bit boring here and there. Tracks 3, 5, 6 and 8 really stand out from the rest for me, but as a whole, it's a very good album! The guy's got a second album together, just looking somewhere to release it as far as I know. I'll be looking forward to that one!
