    dude, i promise you , with all my essence, that miranda herself send me that kick. now, maybe she stole it from cosmosis, but i definitely got it from her.
  4. another one. first pick: Noosphere - Carpe Noctem to me there comes nothing close to this track in terms of pure psychedelia. Padi wonders what is so special about it but there is something about it no other track has. Cant put my finger on it. second pick: hallucinogen - gamma goblins part 2 ( fairly obvious choice) third pick: X-dream - we created our own happiness although its very very hard to pick just 3. I also wanna put Mindfield - Lets get stoned and watch the freaks up there, but I wanted to limit myself to three.

    omg paul i love you! that was my favorite kickdrum for a LOOONG time. although i liked the Gnocchi remix version better. back in 1999 and early 2000s this song was in my top 5! the 303 is savage. man i remember when i used to hang on the same community (remember when communities was a thing?) as miranda and we used to chat. she even gave me a kickdrum as a gift. i still have it to this day. here it is: https://files.fm/u/d98xxv9j if you examine it you can see it was given to me in 2006

    Artifact303 - Feelings -the epitome of Neo Goa

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with Project Genesis vibes indeed Artifact303 - Contact is pretty amazing too. It does sound like he used the exact same template as Feelings but just made a new song with it. There are some audible similarites. Love it. I hadnt heard Cydonia - Why before, i think. But I much rather enjoy MFG - why Man, project genesis is a freaking genious album. edit: its also quite rare to have an old school album like Project Genesis have so much sub-bass. The mixing is flawless. it sounds almost like new school (in terms of precise mixing and deep bass)! Just listening to Why now and man, it goes deeep down. But this still sounds a bit better than new school in many aspects, at least those in the digital realm . This album is kinda like the epitome of Analog goodness I should start a new topic the kick on Sunshine is incredible

    Artifact303 - Feelings -the epitome of Neo Goa

    listening to feelings atm, and its ALMOST ... cheesy. i mean , juuuuust almost. especially the sample " do you feel it " right at the bridge. but then i remember "hey, i like cheesy". i mean im the one who put Spiritual Healing as the top goa track of ALL TIME. and alot of people would put that track the left side of cheesy. but to me, when the cheese works, aka when its done with class, it kinda looses its cheesyness. some tracks are MEANT to be cheesy and thats cool on the dancefloor because youre kind of wasted. But when tracks aim to be classic and unique and they happen to be cheesy is when it falls. Feelings sits right at that edge, right at that peak, when its almost cheesy but still classy enough to not be cheesy. And i guess, that is what New School is all about. Not cheesy but just at the border. Then you have the other side, stuff like Morphic Resonance. That doesnt even bother with coming close to being cheesy. Who needs cheesy melodies anyways. And I respect that fully.. But i guess to summarize my initial thought about this thread is that the epitome is AALMOST cheesy while still not being cheesy. So basically Artifcat303 - Feelings. And im being genereous with the cheesyness on that one, actually i dont think its cheesy at all. I think its pure perfection. But I also think Nova Fractal is in the Top 3 - which most of you seem to disagree with. I mean nova fractal to me is nearly as good as artifact303. I guess i just like when its sitting at the border of cheesy. I always have. I never liked Nitzho though, but I always loved those special "Dancing Galaxy" type of melodies. anyway, sorry about the Essay

    Artifact303 - Feelings -the epitome of Neo Goa

    ok man, i get it i like morphic resonance too btw, but its not something i would compare to Artifact303 - Feelings or For A Better World, or even Filteria which is somewhat overhyped. I would however compare it to something like Skarma, Liquid Flow, Mindsphere and PsyH Project. (all 4 of which is better than M R to me) But i completely and utterly respect your opinion on the "floating spacey fluff" getting on your nerves A more accurate comparison in my mind, to Morphic Resonance is not found in new school at all. But in more like Toi Doi, MFG, Mindfield, Jaia, and other old school artists. I mean take the two you pasted above.. Thats like straight out of a mix between Toi Doi, MFG and Jaia. Wonderful stuff no doubt. Besides, who doesnt like in-your-face 303??? Excellent stuff there.

    Videogame themes you want to hear remixed as psytrance

    well how about this. such a great time for self promotion. i remixed NES - journey to silius stage 2 a few years back. here it is. i still think it sounds pretty cool today.

    Artifact303 - Feelings -the epitome of Neo Goa

    really paul? thats the epitome of new school? btw im sorry if that sounded judgemental. its not my intention. i always mean well, even though i can come across differently sometimes..

    Artifact303 - Feelings -the epitome of Neo Goa

    if we are talking Filteria i think for me its Rotate To Vibrate or perhaps the newer sound of The Big Blue / Wormhole. I think its pretty cool we all seem to agree on the bigger things of the genre we love. The small details might be huge for one person and small for another and thats the subjective side of music. Btw, ive listened again to the Psy-H track and I really have not paid it enough attention before. Its wonderful. the key changes are epic its rare to find key changes these days that DOESNT sound cheesy. Filteria - The Big Blue also has incredible key changes. RA though --- not really up there at least in my opinion.

    Artifact303 - Feelings -the epitome of Neo Goa

    dont sell yourself short on your own opinions. your opinions is equally strong as mine or anyone elses. no need to explain or "excuse". the psy-h project track was a great example! i appreciate what youre saying. i get it. i feel though there is a huge difference in the classic scene (ap) and the new scene. The new scene is more focused on mixing and making the track really fuck with your head. the older style was alot more about melodies and atmospheres. i guess thats why i chose artifact303 for my top pick. had this been a general "top goa track" thread, it would have been far far more difficult for me to justify artifact303.
  14. i dont know. I thought the original was both mixed AND mastered way to thin. So i put my Amen CD into the drive (yes, i own it) and printed a 192khz, 32bit wav file. lowered the db with about -30db. Put some eq on the bass to bring it back up to decent levels. Returned the gain back up to normal. End result: Fully bass heavy version of my favorite AP track, THE NEXUS.this is WITH bass, i can tell you that much. Nothing is lost in terms of dynamics, or transients. for some people you might say its TOO much bass, but for you i say "listen to the original" WARNING. its 700mb. this is for audophile nerds only who happened to think the original was almost without bass. why no flac/mp3? i wanted to keep the full quality of the wav for you audophiles. https://www.aeap.se/tmp/nexus-192.wav

    Artifact303 - Feelings -the epitome of Neo Goa

    quick reply, didnt fully immerse myself in the above track yet - have to say though, I have had wonderful experiences with Psy-H project. I just dont see how anything can match Artifact303 - Feelings when it comes to the ESSENCE of New Goa. Granted , this psy-h track is certainly bigger, but i dont necesseraliy want bigger and more dancefloor ready tunes.. edit2: ive almost heard the full track on my headphones now and it is amazing!! Im very happy you put this in the thread. might make for a very interesting thread.
