    Hypnoxock- Futurexock

    Electric Universe - The Prayer

    (!) Psy-H Project - Precession of the Universe (!) (THE best goa track EVER) (or Sonic Elysium remix when I'm in the full-on mood)

    Astral Projection - Liquid Sun 

    Hyperception - Shaking

    Chromosome - Reality Engineer (original! not Vimana remix)

  2. I just found Innerscape on yotube and I think it's quite nice, i like such smooth melodies and cosmic synths. Can't say it's an outstanding track, the melodies are somehow linear and predictable, but a still a nice example of my preferred kind of goa.

    I understand from the reviews I shouldn't bother listening to other tracks," chaotic, agressive, pure scorched earth monster" etc are typically bad qualities in my book.

    one of his absolute finest works! up there with filter traces, easily. and i love how underrated it is :)

    i remember many shunning it when it came out. .. :p guess its too "trancy" and "cheesy" for some , but i adore those type of cheesy key changes if done in a sofisticated way.

    well done mr. filteria. i imagine i would go nuts over this track back in my e days of the early 00s :D

    What an amazing track! I'm not a fan of Filteria, his other tracks I've heard sound too chaotic and harsh to me, but this one is very different. Really good melodies.

    I too love a sunrise set of some melodic full on.. early protoculture style is just perfect for that time imo.

    No idea really why its not as prevalent nowdays. U Recken and those guys are still making music though his later stuff hasnt grabbed me as much.

    Hopefully someone here knows some nice new stuff for us! 


     U recken is mostly making prog now. Not bad and quite melodic at times, but indeed not really as exciting as his older stuff. Other people who were making this kind of fullon are either silent now or make some different music. 

    Digicult recently uploaded a track to youtube, no idea if he is going to release it officially but it's awesome

    but I think that's an old track actually.

    Neuroplasm's The Art of Melting Time and E-Mov's Stellar Loom have some nice melodic bits that remind me of that old full-on, not really a melodic storm like old Protoculture or U-Recen but some decent melodic parts here and there.

    Also some elements of that melodic/morning full-on may be occasionally found in some random tracks every now and then, but I can't think of any artist/label who would consistently release music in that style now.


  5. The Silicon Sound thread reminded me on this, It was the subgenre that has actually hooked me and made me a psytrance fan. But it seems to have died out by now. I mean, 144-146 bpm, trancy melodies, smooth and soft morning sound. Often borderline cheesy (well, sometimes not even borderline), not really psychedelic but still very enjoyable.


    Any ideas why music like this is not made anymore?

    I wonder what you guys may suggest for tracks/albums/artists that might be inspired by Pure Analog or have some similarities. Melodic full-on with smooth and deep, somehow mysterious sound?


    To me Hyperion's Drop Psychosis album has some quite obvious similarities

    The first favorite song i remember is "Lambada" by Kaoma

    It was also my favourite song when I was 4-5 y.o. I was singing all the time which annoyed the hell out of my grandma. Actually it was the first piece of music which I consiously defined as having some emotional impact on me.


    Maybe if we dig deeper it had some subliminal message which eventually brought all of us here?

  8. Ok, my fisrt exposure to electronic music was mid 90's (I'm that old!), it was some eurodance like 2unlimited and Russian synthpop (Technologia, Biokonstruktor), I discovered Prodigy a bit later and then EBM like Wumpscut and Front Line Assembly. There was only so much music I could find in Russian "music sores" (actually these stores were just kiosks with pirate tapes near metro stations, I was lucky if the tape had a proper tracklist) so I didn't even know goa trance existed. 

    Unfrotunately I switched to heavy metal soon, all cool kids in my school were into metal and punk rock/alternative so I had no other choice, din't want to be called out "raver", "druggie" and such. The next decade I listened to metal, later I also had some interest in progressive rock, blues, fusion and stuff. Played guitar all this time but not really professionally. 

    One day in 2005 I woke up and suddenly realized that I can't listen to any song with any guitar sound in there anymore. I went to a kiosk near the next metro station to buy some "other" music, they had some Paul van Dyk tape playing and I immediately relaized that this was what I needed right now (or it was Paul Oakenflod, i don't remember... some of these Pauls). I was an eager trance listener (van Dyk, van Buuren, Tiesto, Dj Feel and shit) for next few years until I realized that I can't listen to the same supersaw arpeggio in each new track anymore, so I started looking what else was there. I discovered liquid DnB, then psychill, then Infected Mushroom and Astral Projection.

    In 2010 I occasionally found VA-Orientation 5 released by Dacru (I was actually looking for something else and bought it by mistake). 

    And now I'm here.

  9. One of my favourite newschool artists, he has very recognizable sound and actually good melodies. I think of his music as a logical evoultion of goa trance sound, rather than "let's try to rip off a 96 track but add 10 acid layers on top because we can".


    Whenever I feel like listening to some modern goa Mental Triplex-Presence is usually among my very first picks.

  10. Euphorya is nice but it seems that they try to sound like Digicult but don't quite manage to nail it.

    This is a Dream has a melody which sounds like a rip-off of another track

    Around 4:25.

    Anyway I agree that morning full-on with smooth sound and good melodies is now really hard to find. These tracks caught my attention recently as something that could be called an evoltion of classic SS/Protoculture sound of sorts (the second one the bpm is too slow though, perhaps more like old Liquid Soul stuff).

    Actually, if you are guys are really so interested in this... The first new school goa track is the first goa-trance track completely made with pc! No external synths used. Any idea what that track would be? :p 

    Psylent Buddhi? 

    This is taken from Discogs: "1997 - 2003 is, as the album title suggests, a collection of tracks created between 1997 and 2003. ....Apart from Retrocede, Metalucid and Winter Tickle, the tracks were produced using an eclectic combination of Impulse Tracker, Rebirth, Dreamstation and Acid". 


    For what I know, Rebirth and Dreamstation were some of the first software capable of making synth sounds, Acid was a mixing software and Impulse Tracker was, well ... a tracker. So apparently no external gear whatsoever.

    first Newschool track:


    Well, that sounds horrible like most 80s synth-pop stuff, especially made in ex-USSR. But some of Alliance's later songs were actually great, my father had a vinyl, i think it was Sdelano v Belom (Made In White) which I liked a lot when I was about 11 y.o. Today it sounds very naive but it still has some hypnotic and mysterious qualities similar to what I'm looking for in psychill music

  13. Nexus 6 and Pure Reality are timeless.

    I think Pure Analog and Protoculture's Refractions basically defined the sound of morning/melodic fullon for the whole decade.


    My favourite take on remixing Nexus 6

    and Pure Reality

    it's supposedly my native language, yet i don't understand a single word of what the guy is saying.

    I think it's German though

    "Freitag, Samstag fick' ich meinen Kopf
    Feier' ich 'nen Zopf, mach' mir keinen Kopf"

    At least I know what Kopf, Freitag, ficken and some other words mean in German :)

  15. Cool song, ugly girl (the other girl, the blonde one, is sort of sexy though... or is it the same girl?), have no idea what it has to do with psytrance. Did anyone patent triplets? 


    Yes, the song is cool. Almost everything sung in German is cool :)

    If you ask for worse examples, proper cultural appropriation between pop and psytrance may sound like that


    or that

    but id like to steer back to production style, because new school goa seems to have much more focus in mixing/technical side. More "perfect" like kicks, basslines, hihats, etc. Everything is precisely engineered to absolute perfection (to the best of the artists ability anyway)

    Actually newschool goa (not all of it, but some part) sounds to me the least "produced" subgenre in the whole psy scene. Typical psytrance mixes (full-on, proggy, hi-tech, whatever) are very clean and polished, basslines are super-tight - otherwise no label will release it. Goa mixes often sound much less polished and often are quite raw. Loud kick and brutal compression on the master bus doesn't necessarily mean good production :). TBH there are some goa artists, including some known and respected ones, whose stuff I just can't listen to because i can't stand their mixing and mastering style. 


    It's a common misconception that production is cheap these days. Unless you have an acoustically treated studio room and expensive speakers, which not everyone can afford, you would have a hard time meeting the current psytrance production standards. Goa as a whole seems more underground, I know some goa producers are mixing their stuff in their living rooms, with little or no acoustic treatment, with cheap speakers or even just headphones, some even make music on their smartphones and such and release it. 


    There are artists who deliver excellent mixing and mastering like Ra, latest Mindsphere, Artifact303, some others. On the other hand, old AP albums released in 95-97 sound extremely well produced even today, much better than some of the new releases actually.
