  1. can't this also apply to goa? we can learn to stop overthinking and worrying and accept goa for what it is. there's something for everyone. you either get it or you don't. some times a song will make me queasy, other times that same song will hit just the right spot. generally the best way for me to enjoy goa is loud enough that it drowns out my thoughts... once i reach that state of zen, it's easy to get lost in the silence. isn't this what it's all about? .... isn't this where we want to be? "naked, singing in the rainforest, stoned, and exalted. one with the souls of th
  2. had to dust off my account to post for this one... it's been a while since an album hit the target with as deadly accuracy as this one I remember Xamanist had the misfortune of releasing the previous album "7" on Dec 31st 2016... it would have surely been on the best of 2016 lists except i think most people had made up their mind by the last day of the year... and the idea of putting a super-late 2016 album in a best of 2017 list is a whole other bag of worms... anyways, "7" was one of the best albums within the 365 day period that surrounded it's release, and "Out of Time" co
  3. the website release date says Dec 7...but Bandcamp says Nov 30? either way, i have already cleared 3 hours of my schedule to fully devote my being to this behemoth of a compilation hopefully there is no apocalypse before it arrives...
  4. never. my entire going out schedule is centred around proximity to hygienic bathrooms. if i don't have access to a 4 star minimum hotel or upscale department store within a 10 minute walk from where it's at then it's a no go.
  5. admittedly, my first few listens of this album i was disappointed but after readjusting my expectations i find it to be quite enjoyable. a lot of goa can be too intense if i just want to have something on in the background. the screeching assault of noises and non-stop nature all blend together and i feel kind of claustrophobic and anxious after about 20 minutes. goa is great if i want to close my eyes and analyze the complexities but not so much if it's accompanying a task. but this ufomatka album is really warm and easy to digest as a soundtrack to my life. there is nothing abrasiv
  6. Im pretty sure the release date is the 33rd of Neveruary
  7. it also works well when played while burning the trees in secret! lovely, lush grooves... waves of liquid aural gold cascading through my ear drums. there's not enough of this 135bpm-ish crystalline grooved psytrance left being produced these days but when it's as well made as this, it always hits the spot i saw you have 2 tracks featured on the upcoming Heart of Goa V6 compilation... congrats buddy!
  8. warmup Goa? there is no such thing... Goa is all about immediately sticking it in and thrusting at maximum pistons at the most, you might lick your finger to give it a little lubrication but that's it thanks for this mix! gonna enjoy it!
  9. thanks for the prompt review. i'm curious what emotion this music evokes when people listen to it? it makes me feel anxious, confused and dirty like nothing else. it might be that i've only heard it in the daytime but it's not tolerable for long before i have to put on something more soothing (like the brilliant new Rival Consoles or Jon Hopkins albums )... for me, goa psytrance is about activating the crown chakra. it's a connection to something of a higher essence, more pure and ordered than waking reality. this album is the opposite of that... it's grimey, turbulent and hellishly
  10. Good find but I expect Yuta will be playing a more techno oriented set to fit in with the theme of the night. It would be awesome if he busted out the old school goa but I wouldn't anticipate it. if you're heading to Contact, make sure you register to be a member... http://www.contacttokyo.com/members/ you can click for English registration but let me know if you have any trouble signing up... if I was going out tonight, I'd be heading to Daikanyama Unit for sure cause I'm an on the fringes kind of guy (and if you promise not to tell anyone, i love GMS/1200 Mics!) ..
  11. What are you doing online!? Get over to Koenji Cave, they're having their psytrance night right now! Tomorrow night (saturday) G.M.S is playing at Unit in Daikanyama. I don't know how you feel about their brand of Full On but they're veterans and will definitely know how to get a party started. Daikanyama is definitely a hipper area than Koenji, so even if it's not as psychedelic a venue, there will be more hot chicks a better crowd. Fineplay Records is hosting the event, they have a decent following from their annual beach parties. http://trancelife.net/event-3295/ truth be tol
  12. maybe it's just me but to my ears this album is severely lacking in bass... i'm not sure if it was Mr. Lectro Spektral Daze's intention or the mastering choices but the low end frequencies feel neutered. whatever beautifully sequenced bassline and kick that there might have been gets de-emphasized to the point that my enjoyment of the album is reduced. the fact that tsotsi mentions pulling out his earphones from one of the sweeps should tell you something... while listening on speakers is kinda okay, listening on my v-moda headphones, which are usually excellent at reproducing booming clu

    magnificently said review... made me want to dust it off and give it another spin this album is almost too much to swallow in one go (that's what she said). it's just one atomic blast after another. the quality is so high that it can be difficult to wrap around it (that's what she also said.) Global Sect is taking a smart approach with their 2018 lineup by focusing more on solo albums. it gives artists a bit more chance to vary the tempos and experiment. the new Median Project album is incredible... if you can hear your neighbours complain, you're not listening loud
  14. i don't want to deter anyone from buying the album and supporting Suntrip, so i will keep most of my thoughts to myself... but you pretty much summed it up Mr. Trance2MoveU. i'm not sure if the album is meant to be appreciated as historical artifact, or as a technical achievement of what was possible in the nascent digital age, or as a nostalgic reminiscence of goa's early days but it just wasn't scratching the itch for me on a musical level. i'm probably at fault though since my overloaded dopamine receptors have been utterly desensitized with so much complex and maximal music (among oth
