  3. 103% funded. Only a few copies left in the next couple of days
  4. well, with 3 mins preview clips is not exactly blind trust, is it?
  5. First it needs to reach the target. That' the important thing now
  6. Totally agree, that's why I mainly go by label. That and because I like to see the catalogue numbers on the spine of the covers I guess that's the collector in me.
  7. These are my currents stats, which are pretty much up to date. As you can see most of them are based on the Goa/Psychill genres What is considered big collection is very subjective. I know for a fact that my collection dwarves in comparison with some other people's.
  8. Charging your fans for 15 euros and then finding out the physical cd sells for £9, that's bad, really bad IMO. The fans are first their to support you should be able to get a better deal, not worst.
  9. The Suns Of Arqa Kickstarter is live. Over 5 hours of previously unreleased recordings starting from 1979 up to this day. The tracks are compiled and mixed on chronologically order to give you that immersive feeling of a live release. Go over to my Kickstarter page to have a look at the trackilist. I hope you like it
  10. The latest project from Digital Reprints. http://kck.st/370B5UC Please share if you can. These historic recordings need to be preserved Back to the roots (again) "There are so many artists out there that I would love to see their music printed on cds. But it makes it so hard for me to put them on a priority list because for me all of them are on the same spot, first place. So, to make it easier, I decided to change my way of thinking slightly. It is time to surprise people, go back to the roots, to the artists that started this music genre, the legends." That was part of the description for Greg Hunter's Kickstarter project. And after a short intermission (read amazing Goa Trance by Elysium) I am back to the same principle. And taking a step or two further back (in time). I have said it before and I will say it again, the artists involved in my projects make it redundant to write any introduction for them. I just do it to make the landing page look cooler :). So let me present you my next project Suns of Arqa "Suns of Arqa creator and mentor Michael Wadada has been continuously investigating the supernatural potential hidden in the Classical Raga structure of the music of India. His mission – to mix the cerebral and illusive cosmological vibrations of Raga, with the mother earth rhythms of Niyabinghi drumming that were surfacing in England in the guise of Dub Reggae. An epic sonic mission which began in 1979, over 200 artists from around the globe have collaborated with Suns of Arqa, interpreting the various indigenous, tribal and classical folk traditions, and creating some of the most sublime Dub - World - Dance - Raga - Reggae Music in the world today." Discography Throughout the decades Micheal has provided with a truly extensive discography which will be pointless to detail here. Just visit Discogs or his site to get an idea. When we were discussing with Michael which tracks/albums we should include in the box set I spent a lot of time trying to identify any unreleased or obscure tracks to make this set as good as possible. But then I got the subtitle of the release... ...over 5 hours of previously unreleased recordings And that my friends truly does not need any introduction. My search was over :) Michael went through his vast collection of old tapes and recordings, compiled and mixed 4 CDs spanning over 10 decades on a chronological order Have a look at the tracklist and go over to my Bandcamp page for preview.

  11. He is overselling a bit but still, he can explain it much better than I
  12. Wouldn't that classify us an unintelligent? Are dolphins or chips or mice less intelligent than us? We define intelligence by using a measuring stick that it's measuring limits are defined by our own, so it's not really a successful measuring device. Wow, I was doing the same thing (although the other way around) talk about coincidence.
  13. Posting this on facebook. "WTF??? No unnecessary use of the knobs, no hands on the air, no dancing around to keep her hands steady and LOOKING DOWN all the time? Could that be....mixing??? I've heard tales about that but I didn't believe it was true. More like a legend told by an older generation to frighten us youngsters. I thought playing one really long audio file, prepared and mixed back at home was the only way to properly mix.It's madness I tell you. IDIOTS. You know who you are."
  14. Ultimae is not doing bad, on the contrary. Changing direction to the more easily accepted Dub Techno Glitch genre they are actually doing better (as a record label and record store). I have given up on them years ago. BTW, did you know RGB collection was to be released on Digital Reprints? Plans changed just before the Kickstarter was launched because Sidereal moved in offering to re-release the whole back catalog of Solar Fields. I was actually glad, they deserved a proper release. (Still struggling for Mirror's Edge )
  15. What makes you think we are brilliant as a species?
  16. While we wait for the Elysium digipacks to be printed I'm going to let you know for my Christmas gift to you Next week I start another Kickstarter in time for Christmas. Going back to downtempo music the next featured artist will be Suns Of Arqa. 4 CDs filled exclusively with unreleased tracks and edits. Spanning 4 decades of music, starting as early as 1979 up to 2020. Get ready, proper announcement soon
  17. All the files have been sent to the printing factory. I wait for the final proofs to arrive and then off for printing. Usually from this moment it takes for 3 weeks for me to get the boxes to my hands. Can't wait
  18. Entry #63 Hado Records started with what a lot of people considered a big bang. A reprint of Zirrex's debut album. And they also upgraded into a 3xCD album as well. In my case however I didn't really care about his music much. If anything, the bonus disc is where all the magic happens. I think the purchase is worth it just for this 3rd disc. Skipping his next album cause I don't understand what he was trying to do with that and landing on the 3rd release. Voyager: First Plateau. An excellent compilation, diverse and energetic Psychedelic Trance. Really, really good. However, I stopped following Hado after that coming to a realisation that I tried to suppress. For the second time in my life, I am losing interest in the genre :(
  19. I feel that the initial releases of Interchill were pushing the boundaries a bit more and were willing to explore different sounds (considering the genre).
  20. I categorise by label mainly. My collection is still not than expansive (less than 2000 discs) so it still works as a system. And you know, sometimes you want to listen to some good Goa but with nothing particular in mind, so you go to the Dragonfly catalogue and you are sorted
  21. I am, but not with daily updates any more. Just the interchill catalogue would take too much time to do it individually
  22. Having only recently introduced to the solo projects of Son Kite/Minilogue duo, I instantly fell in love with the sounds of Markus. The mystical vibes his music emanates in conjunction with the techno rhythms just hit the perfect, sweet spot for me. And this is how my journey begins.
  23. Entry #62 Wow, I hadn't realised that Interchill Records is on the game for more than 2 decades. And with around 60 releases you know that they are doing something right. Andrew Ross Collins proves with every release that he simply has a good taste in music. Crossing between ambient, dub and psychill every release is worth owning. They never saturated the marker with uninteresting or dull music, other labels have as many releases in a fraction of that time. So, if any of you downtempo labels want to stay around for as long as Interchill start keeping notes. P.S. Kaya Project was purposefully left out for he will get his own entry
