  1. I think this is a banging release. This style is pretty much what Cronomi is all about, I don't know why any one here is shocked that they got an Avant Garde release from the Cro-Crew. Also what is the difference from a live recorded album and this one? All the songs have a start middle and end, were written and created just the same. IDK, seems like a legit release to Tsotsi.
  2. Stick to info that you can trust. From what the video says it seems like it can get to us via bacteria in our lungs. But still less likely.
  3. Stick to info that you can trust. From what the video says it seems like it get to us healthy adults if bad enough.
  4. https://youtu.be/ZbKNU1iqBvY Documentation from Australia's last few months
  5. More Jagoa! Review of 'The First Steps' in 2019. Didnt know about the follow up, gonna enjoy digging into this.
  6. Its pretty fucked. I feel for you guys. We have had a domestic comedy cruise in brisbane cancelled on us too. I don't think govts have any idea what they are doing right now. Just blindly following each other, the cost of treating the sick can't possibly be greater than the cost of a world recession.
  7. This is an album cover for the album "Don't Be So Serious" by the artist "Supertoxic". The label resonsible for the release is "Mertacortex Records" who are responsible for releases such as "Supertoxic - Don't Be So Serious. The album cover has large amounts of red colouring and includes an image of the all seeing eye (In red), some ancient writing (In red), a devilish type face being mirrored (also in red) and what may be a large and open eye ball which contains the devilish red face. It could not be an eye ball but it is a safe bet as there appears to be some eyelashes pn the top but not on the bottom so maybe a special type of eye ball.
  8. Mum? Is that you?
  9. @Anoebis What are the chances of a schedule coming our way?
  10. Every new release gives us new tracks. This one is incredible.
  11. Too bloody true mate. You are free to spread your wings and fly again.
  12. Progressive Trance, Psycho Trance, God Trance One of the greatest ever.
  13. Artist: Atlantis Title: Cosmic Waves Label: Global Sect Date: 24, Feb, 2020 Tracklist: 1. Chi-A.D - Astral Warrior (Atlantis Remix) 2. Contact With Peace 3. Infinite universe (With Alienapa) 4. Cosmic Waves 5. Altered State of Consciousness 6. Acid Mantra 7. Astral Way (With Proxeeus) 8. Miranda - Phenomena (Atlantis Remix) 9. Inner Energy You can’t be sure of everything in this life. One minute you can be with the love of your life, the next you can have your heart stolen by another out of nowhere. You can be rich, make a few bad choices and then be out on the streets. Most terrifying of all, a strong mind can turn into a weak one, changing who you are and what you know, revealing you to be the same kind of human you used to think you were different from. But you can be sure that Global Sects mission for high quality Goa trance has extended into 2020. You can be sure that Atlantis knows how to carry you away from your problems and tribulations for some much-needed R&R. Clearly a much needed journey into the cosmos is exactly what The Surgeon general ordered for us , so here we are. My god what beautiful cover art. Atlantis AKA George Christoforidis has, like in the battle of Martyropolis led by Bahram, shot a storm of arrows into the sky turning it as black as a star-less galaxy. Pay attention to the mantra’s, hymns and galactic energy. Each break brings with it a calm euphoria, laden with synths that rise and fall before climaxing into more cosgasms. Take track 1 Astral Warrior (Remix), although personally to short for my liking, (I was certain that final moment was just a break) You get a track filled with acidic whips and melodies, encouraging vocal samples come and go getting you ready to charge into war with the ShlimSlums of Glaxy Hexaden 438. Contact With Peace spiritualises things up a notch further. Deadly basslines grind in the back bringing in an industrial edge as acidic chops of Solar Flares shoot their way through the galactic storm. If I was picking favorites this would be up there, but, well, you’ll see. A much missed Alienapa joins our boy Atlantis for Infinite Universe and it’s just as epic as you would want this collaboration to be. Welcome back baby, and thanks for bringing the coronal mass ejections to the party. Raw leads are introduced to shred up the asteroid belt leaving nothing but space debris. The huble telescope couldn’t track the layers of Infinite Universe, despite it showing up to be one of the biggest tracks of the night. The duo brings their A game for that main break and blast us completely out of this world. Cosmic Waves instantly fills the air with the enigma of nebula clouds expanding to consume everything around us. The melody swings out of the giant vaporous masses again and again, bringing you in each time to be lost in the beautiful sound of this music. While not overly complex the main melody works with the other elements in near euphoric harmony. Altered State of Consciousness comes in with more hardcore whispers and basslines. Whispers and words turn into mantra’s and anthemesque shots of comets across the known layers of the human experience. Raw dirty industrial sounds fill the track from underneath, daring you to look down. We float for a bit and the song takes off again before ending maybe a little to early. Those whispers are so clean and sexy though I don’t mind. Acid Mantra picks up with more foreign wordplay making this one spiritual beast of a track. Another favourite for all the reasons that make a track great. Clean clear production, interesting, raw background noises and a melody that goes higher and further. The main break is the best so far, so soft and silky with such a beautiful vocal hymn going on, this is pure trance baby. Astral Way. We all heard how the last duet worked out, and now we have another legend of the genre, Proxeeus to work some acidic fury into the fabric of space time. Acid whips around the track like elastic electricity as a star-studded melody is introduced. The atmospheric background reminds me of Ra’s R.O.M which is nothing but a good thing. Astral Way is probably the most complex and diverse track here, another showing of what you can achieve with a little collaboration. Phenomena is maybe the only track here I think could have been better. It’s slightly more cosmic than the original, although the original feels like it has more depth and rawness to it. Maybe if I hadn’t heard last years remaster of her treasures, but damn it’s hard to beat an original. Inner Energy slows us down a little but not a lot. The slower pace allows more space for the track grow and morph. The mid break is just straight up bad ass, The rest of the track doesn't offer too much variety but for a couple of listens it has been neat. I personally love when vocals are placed into tracks and think that leaning towards the spiritual side of things is almost always a good choice. Think somewhere in between Zopmanika and Psy-H Project. But really this is Atlantis' unique style that I really haven't heard like this before. The presentation, of the album is interstellar, this is a beautiful piece of artwork that hits every sweet spot in my body. My ideal kind of trance, beautiful and moving, in fact i was head bobbing and doing subtle little hand dances for about 5 hours straight as i had this on repeat on a flight back to Australia. The collaboration tracks really stand out and show great teamwork, my other favourites are 1, 2, 6, 7. Bom Shanka you beautiful people over at Global Sect. Andrei Verner delivers another beautiful piece of artwork to add to the collection. https://globalsect.bandcamp.com/album/atlantis-cosmic-waves
  14. Artist: The Schmitt Show Title: Teonanactyl Label: Sundance Records Release: September 17, 2018 Hey guy Welcome back to the review. Today we have to talk about something serious, but first a word from our sponsor NordVPN *'VPN Good'* Ok excellent now lets look what we have here. It’s Schmitt No not that Schmidt Yes that’s right, Ezekial Schmitt, teaming up with Sundance records who have heard the complaints from the masses ‘Bring back melodic psytrance’ Now if you’re into that kind of thing then this thing is going to be your thing. Why Dragon’s Blood is why, a great way to start off a lil ep. Mmmmm feel the Schmitt. Super grooving rhomper that is just as many parts melodic psychedelic tech as it is trance. Boom. Things come and go, nothing gets stale and the buddumbabum of the drums are syncopated as. In A Trance is also why, why, not for it’s super solid production, and wavy leads, but also for it’s proper trance like rhythm. The wavy melody does what waves do, big waves though, shooting up and down. The zippity synth keeps things light and the talky sample is hot hot hot. So is the hymning. So is everything. Clean. Of The Forest isn’t here to watch moss grow. At only 5:54 there isn’t time for that, still time for an intro though, bellisimo. Coming in with roaring leads from the get go. Somehow minutes feel like more minutes, this certainly does not have the feel of a long Katy Perry song. Schmitt gets the job done in the allocated time and doesn’t miss a beat. The final raw melody sounds familiar, I wonder if it’s from a goa track (And Visa-Versa) or if I just recognize it from a previous listen to this song. No shade, it works wonders. Schuman, get it, like the Schuman show. But more oriental than white middle class American tv. More hymning takes you deep, with darkness just waiting in the depths. It comes out to play for a bit before some crazy layers stack up and hit home. I came of the new Shpongle Static release to this and hardly noticed a drop in production cleanliness. This EP isn’t growing any bacteria fast. Songs build and drop, slap you with a melody, build and drop. A great Jab-Straight-Uppercut combo that works around and around. I think this is a great release and well worth many’s time https://sundancerecords.bandcamp.com/album/teonanactyl
  15. This is Legit one of my favorites, have stared at it for at least a total of 45 minutes.
  16. There was a 2016 release from Avatar which is definitely still not 2019. Maybe i read it upside down. More than likely a faulty assumption as i found it in 2019. Removed to reflect real life.
  17. Whenever i go through an old disaster thread I wish that it didn't result in someone leaving the forum. We need more disaster threads. Hypnoxock + Artha
  18. Some absolute bangerz that haven't been mentioned. Proxeeus - Me, Myself, and a Gnop-keh Goasia - Polar Lights Celestial Intelligence - Anapa Median Project - The Constellation Of Aries Daimon - Codex Daimon - Wake Up And Smell The Ashes Xamanist - DNA (OSG Remix) Nervasystem - Narcosynthesis Artha - Insidelamp Psysutra - Acid Rush Psysutra - Postcard From Goa Damn Antares/Daimon, & Psysutra were good. Would do many many things to get more releases from them.

  20. Chuck it on ya list dawg, totally counts as a 2019
  21. Artist: Various Title: Goa Trance Adventures 2020 Vol.1 Label: Timewarp Records Release: Jan 11, 2020 Tracklist:- 1. Barmohak - Spiritual Ceremony 2. Tranquility Base Project - Where Did The Towers Go 3. Filami - Wavicle 4.Cactus Arising - No Stereotypes 5.Celestial Twins - Sleeping With LFO 6. MeloDeep - Foundation Stone 7. Wizard Project - Divine Intervention 8. N3V1773 - Spherical Wavefront Of The Mind 9. Psychedelic Quest - Psychotherapy 10. The Maniac - A Treatise On Acid Goa Trance Adventures, Goa Trance Wizards, Goa Trance Voyage & Magic of Goa Trance.... Yikes. and all Volume 1. Something tells me we are never going to see a volume 2. If you don't like getting spammed with 50 new tracks a week and therefore don't follow Timewarp, allow me. I have picked one Comp from their recent catalog A-Bomb to see if it holds up. After all, the team over at TWR bring us new artists and give them a voice to be heard, kind-of-like how Twitter gives every doinkus a chance to shout an opinion....Only much better. because it has the flavour of G O A. Well it was a roll of dice to decide which one of the 4 i was going to pick > Well close enough to a role of the dice, I decided I liked the word adventure more than voyage, Voyage is far to 'long ocean trip' for me, Wizards i'm down with but couldn't pick between the stuff that makes a wizard a wizard (Magic) or the sum of the parts itself (Wizard). Speaking of 'Kind-of-Likes' This comp is kind of like that sneaky Goa Full Moon Compilation with a bunch of recently released hits. Maybe they specified that, IDK, I they don't hit 'Enter' on their album descriptions which really makes the task of reading a paragraph much more daunting than the simple task of reading multiple broken down and congruent paragraphs. Barmohak is flagged as my most promising Timewarp talent, Barmo is the only one who really stands out there with his big-bad-boi leads, yea i'm drunk.......drunk on the power and self-importance of review writing. Whats that? Oh the song? Yea it's gotta cool organic intro which is always great, more organics please! I wish it would have been incorporated throughout the fast parts of the track. This track reaffirms my preconceived notions of Barmohak which is always a dangerous path that risks a life of confirmation bias. Alright then i'll say it. Some layers were a bit to wispy and could have been bulked up, maybe a little to fluttering and fast, take your time my dude. The first half was lit, got a bit tired after that. ~ Vilmar: Woah that's a lot of writing for one track. H: What are you doing here? Get back to the Goa Gilde review dude. ~ Tranquility Base Project comes out with a hopper topper of a title. Where Did The Towers Go? Seems like we have more than ever. Or is this the future? Having a little premonition are we? TBP Actually hits us hard with a serious banger. This is most things I Love about trance, the breaks into chaos into sneaky breaks back into chaos. Love it. Really good track. Filami knows how to keep a party moving and just because Wavicle isn't a real word doesn't mean I wont be open minded. The main melody is held for the majority of the track which is always very impressive, especially when it develops and morphs. Wait, it's almost like what you expect from a particle AND a Wave. Woah, that went full circle. I liked the outro too. I was going to say 'That Cactus Arising starts us off like any ol Timewarp fam', but then the beat half came in and I ate my thoughts. A midtempo treat that ignores the Sapien heuristic for putting people and things into categories. Good luck ever escaping a stereotype. Wait, didn't I stereotype at the start of this track? Well for a track that is kind of cruisy I feel Cactus could have toned down some of the louder layers in this and really made us dive deeper. I like the production quality but with every element the same volume it loses me a bit. Celestial Twins, the group that get me excited every time i read the first half of their name. that's not fair, I haven't really done a dive into their works. The ambient intro was sweet but there could have been a better transition to that loud ass kick drum and bassline. It gets much better when that evil vocal comes in, really takes you into the track a bit more. Melodeep hits us with a different tone and vibe that feels softer and more comforting on the ears. A welcome change up. This guy bangs hard but also bangs talentedly, Is Melodeep the Xander Corvus of trance? Who knows, that's to raunchy for me. Probably my favourite from the comp so far, the indian 'wallawallas' are awesome as well as all the vocal samples. An edge of Fullon against an edge of Goa, this shits the adventure for sure. Or is it the Mt William Estate 2013 Shiraz? lol, remember when 2013 was shit? time ages things kindly my friends. Wizard Project starts us off with something pretty unoriginal, low volume melody to high volume melody? I guess it would work as a transition. This one is loud boom boom zip zip music. More repetitive than what i'm about, but that's a preference, I don't mind repetitive and deep, this is repetitive and loud. But then the spoken words come in, why do spoken words always sound so good? The track gets better from there on. It is the Neville of 80085 (N3V1773) here to show us why he is so damn good. A real champ and probs one of the hottest Timewarp talents. It feels lush and warm from the very first kick drum, then it gets psychedelic and cool. A really strong performance and great tranceadelic hit. Psychedelic Quest is out to entrance us as well. Psychotherapy comes in with a strong first act, energy builds and builds drawing you in deeper. The second act doesn't do much but fumble and drop the energy that was created. The main break saves the day taking the track into a stronger second half. The rest of the track is completely above par and pretty psychedelic. The Maniac coming in with A Treatise On Acid, the only track known to me before this comp. If we are going to believe that someone over at Timewarp Recs actually puts the time into curating these mass drops of comps then I have to say well done. The maniac finishes the comp off in the exact way that it should of been. A fast crazy and energetic blast of power and psychobaba that temporarily blew my mind apart.. WOOOOOOAWEEEE it just doesn't stop. What a banger. B Deepak gets better with every listen, this guy rocks. After skimming some of the other releases it seems like many of these tracks or all of them (I told you I didn't read the description) have been heard before. As someone who doesn't have the time to fit all the Timewarp releases in, this is a nice little collection that shows where everyone is at with their music. Some pretty trancey and fun music here and actually might prompt me to give at least check the Wizards release. If you were wondering if you should dig into one of these comps then I'd say go for it. https://timewarprecords.bandcamp.com/album/goa-trance-adventures-2020-top-10-hits-vol-1-tw003-timewarp
