  1. I think Skarma has some qualities that set his tracks apart from the rest of modern goa. First, his tracks sound soft and a bit muddy, the kicks are not really punchy and the instruments separation is not that good. On the other hand, there is some lovely warmth in there. I don't pretend I can actually tell hardware production from software but his tracks sound to me more like a small hardware setup than a modern DAW/VSTi-based studio. Second, he doesn't try to kill your ears with 10,000 notes per second, his melodies have some hypnotic and actually entrancing qualities which I don't often hear in modern goa and which rather remind me of classic AP and MWNN tracks. TBH I don't exactly remember what that Hypnoxock goa album sounds like, for we they always were one of the best fullon acts (Synthetic Resurrection!) but when I heard their goa attempts it sounded to me pretty much like "an average newschool album". Maybe i should give it another listen.
  2. I used to think the genre was called neogoa before I learned it was actually a label. AP, what do you think about Skarma? Is it "oldschool" or "newschool" in your definitions? I think it sounds deliberately old, both the prodcution and the musical qualitiies.
  3. How do you distinguish oldschool from newschool? Is it only related to the actual time when it was released (when was the breaking point then)? Is it about production facilities (hadware mixers and sequencers, analog synths vs DAW and virtual/digital synths)? Is it about the production style (newschool supposedly has more layers, more uptempo and less atmospheric sound, more chaotic melodies)? How do you think, is anyone still making oldschool goa, or was in the last decade?
  4. Global Sect style... sort of, I think
  5. Only pure reality My turn: 1. Machines are tools, they are made to be used, it's their nature.... To be slaves? 2. There actually is cosmic system where birth and death are transitions from level to level 3. (In a hysterical female voice) What the fuck is going on?!!
  6. Dont speak for all Russian people please. The tracks are fine, but if you are serious about the future of your music, you don't call your project like Infuckted Mashroom or Ostral Projunction. Deedrah is a really well known artist.
  7. I think this thread is from the times when people were looking for music that conveys a specific mood/atmosphere rather than music that stirctly meets some niche subgenre criteria. When I think about music which I woulds associate with forests, it's something like this
  8. I've just listened to the track from Bandcamp. Quite nice track actually, totally different from what I expected. That funky full-onish vibe from the times when full-on was good These key changes... I think the thing is that the track in a major key. This is something very unusual for psy/goa where minor scales are typically used (if any at all). The key changes here support the melody in a musically correct way but the melody itself sounds weird in the context because it's in major key. For me that's a good kind of weirdness but I can see why it may sound wrong to someone else.
  9. I haven't heard this exact track yet, but the hate towards key changes is something that really puzzles me. I mean, they can sound terrible, basically anything can sound terrible if used without skill and taste. But... psytrance is music. Key changes are natural part of music regardless of the genre. What's wrong with it? The next step is going to be "this track has some notes, how lame, I hate notes", lol. If anything, what actually bothers me about modern psytrance in general is the total lack of melodic content and basslines playing the same note thoughout the whole track in 90% of cases. It wasn't like that few years ago.
  10. Wow, great! The teaser sounds promising. I remember her track Visual Range with awesome melodic moments, this one is less melodic but still nice, classic full-on which I love. Something wrong with the links in your posts, they all lead back to this topic.
  11. For the third time already Well, my point was that you can "prove" basically anything by finding articles and surveys published by serious organisations and giving quotes out of context. I don't actually believe that all vegetarians are psychos, calm down If we talk about vegetarian diets seriously, well, human species is omnivorous by nature. Actually the above example with vitamin A supports exactly this, human metabolism can adapt and use inferior vitamin sources for a short time, but it's an emergency solution, it was "invented" by evolution to survive the periods when our ancestors weren't lucky enough to catch some animals. I can believe that now it's possible to compensate for permanent lack of meat by various food additives. But I'm not so sure that anyone in any place in the world has access to these and has enough knowledge and education to plan good vegetarian diets. So it's not like "if you want to be as good and moral as me just stop buying meat and milk, it's that easy". It's not that easy.
  12. As fas as scientific surveys go This survey says that people with mental issues are more likely to become vegetarians. But another survey says that Look, people, vegans are psychos! They became vegans because they are psychos and being vegans makes things even worse for them.That's science, bro! Well, I just googled some articles for fun, picked some conclusions out of context and put them toghether. Just like you did, because in fact means lots of supplements which people outside of the first world just can't afford, and not appropriately planned ones mean lot of health risks, especially for children. In case of developing countires health organisations recommend because which ends up in
