  1. Wow Thanks for bringing this to my attention. So many Adjectives can be used to describe this album. It’s part wicked, part playful, part hard, and most of all very psychedelic. It really does deserve to be called psytrance. The track with Sienna was probably my favourite for the vocal play. The rest of the tracks are similar enough that I would need a few more careful listens to pick favourites from each other. But that’s not a bad thing as each track is exactly what I want from Psytrance. I can push shuffle and know I’m going to get something good. The only track that I need to grow on me is the Hux Flux track which can quite frankly suck my toes. I might like it in the future, I might never try who knows, who cares, I am but 1 man in a crowd of billions. Very nice release and reignited a little spark inside of me for this type of well produced hard and heavy psytrance.
  2. If you're gonna take Ra off the table i'd take a phreak by nature, clementz or a lemurian track. It could be like the 12 days of Christmas
  3. I've actually just discovered Menog for the first time and he has blown my mind. Your tracks really decent, disappointed when it was over.
  4. What's the protocol here? 1998 review section or 2019? When I.F.O came out we considered that a 2015 release. Akashic Dreaming has had a remaster yea? Jaroslov's recent work right? No way this sounded so bad ass in 1998. I suppose we can call it a 2019 release then? Same goes for all of Classic Goa Trax and the rest of the Unreleased Goa Records catalogue? Maybe there is a better place to ask this, but 2 birds with one stone is my kinda shtyle, and you can't block my Shtyle. 'HMMMZZZZEEEEER! There was a compliment in there, so I guess part of that was relevant to the conversation. That compliment was there for a reason, this is super funky and well produced Goa that sounds like it lives in 2019. Artist: DreamChild Title: Akashic Dreaming Label: Unreleased Goa Records Date: 8 October 2019 Arcania Organic Nova Systen Shock FoxGlove Digital Mantra Fractal Amoeba Spiritual Flux Manta Ray With an album cover that would make Har-el cry, Unreleased Goa Records presents DreamChild - Akashic Dreaming. We not only have two artists that like diving dolphins, but two major labels dedicated to finding unreleased goodies from a time before the present. Akashic Dreaming is a wonderfully titled title. Each track contains elements of pure trance, Dreamy ambient breaks, exciting climaxes and heavy synths that twist and spin with other melodies. Arcania starts off lovely and sweet before giving us the dancing melodies and sweet ambient breaks. the track goes from light to dark and back again just wonderfully, a real spiritual treat. Organic Nova is so far my listened to track. Super funky, and cool. Yes there is a weak lispy melody does come in at 2:30 but gets made up for 30 seconds later. The rest of the track is a big old hoedown with metallic melodies slut dropping it low, Graceful ambient in a wet t-shirt competition, climaxes of firefighting strippers ripping their protective gear off, bass lines fucking in the cubicle, then the whole track pops a molly that hits right as we all thought the fun was over. Powerful final act. System Shock You would think that Dreamchild wouldn't be able to catch me in dreamy breaks as often as he does but that's exactly what happens. This time only a minute into the track and before I knew it I was blasting out of a smooth tumble dryer filled with warm towels into dance land. A complete anthem that gets me again 3 minutes later. The acts are so huge that you just assume it's all over when the drapes of warm towels are gently placed over you. A lull into safety that you want to always be there, but that's not what this crazy life has planned for you. Back into the dance lands we get sent again and again, a system shock. FoxGlove Only a 16 year old bmx rider would have the right word for this track and it would be 'Rusty':- Bruh! A little more low-key and freaky than what i've heard so far and it works. Dreamchild has great range in music but it all feels distinctly him by the sweet treatment that he gives to those breaks and the growing of a track right to the end. It feels like if he didn't have to wrap his tracks up he wouldn't. Digital Mantra is just incredible digital funk and Mantrafuls of fun, the cyber feel and electric melodies all create quite the show. This track would put Michael-Faraday-the-father-of-electronics-as-told-by-Charles-Ludwig into cardiac arrest. The final act really takes the track to another stage and makes sure that you keep flying upwards, you would think I would be use to this by now but every climax comes with a big beautiful surprise. Possibly the best track here but fuck it they are all good. Fractal Amoeba uses its big fat lead to kick the track right off into dimension 6's synthetic world. As melodic layers pile on onto one another, the track beams forward through the higloops and ding-globs that glitter this landscape, like silken mountains of fin-glum. Sweet ambient background noises manage to find their way back into the track giving us beautiful break after beautiful break. Spiritual Flux has the kind of title that I expect crazy stuff to from. The intro is promising and dark, a different direction, a theme, right from the beginning Spiritual Flux is ticking boxes. Boxes getting ticked all over to be honest. Spiritual Flux stays focused and badass to the end with another big moment in the final act, explosions of dark energy that grow into big bad monsters. Manta Ray brings us back to the light. The beautiful midway break lifts me into a state of mind that Mike Tyson must have felt when he realised he could become a legal grower, and then the climax of that break catches me in the face like a left hook from Tyson in 87. Well shit that wraps it up. the 2019 re-release and remaster? of Akashic Dreaming By Dreamchild. What a damn hecking nice experience each one of these tracks gives you. Thanks to Unreleased Goa Records I now know about a badass producer with an infectious shtoyle thanks to this release. I absolutely love (If you cant tell) the attention to the break that isn't just another nice part of his music but a tool that creates all sorts of emotional changes in your psyche, ambient that somehow transports you to another state while building a climax that I personally didn't see coming each time. What a wonder this would be on a dancefloor. I imagine artists don't just give their tracks away to anybody. Suntrip, DAT Records and any else doing this have built a reputation for themselves as the sort of people that can be trusted to preserve and bring forward albums that otherwise may have been lost in time and hazey LSD memories. I don't care what the Russians are saying on Psymusic.ru this is good work. I have another Non album related inappropriately placed question for Unreleased Goa Records, does any one purchase your album from Beatport? How has that site survived so long? I bought my first album from them the other week and couldn't believe the amount of things I found to bitch about during the process. To me Bandcamp has become synonymous with the Goa scene. Links for both https://unreleasedgoarecords.bandcamp.com/album/akashic-dreaming https://www.beatport.com/release/akashic-dreaming/2746506
  5. Psykovsky's renown makes no sense to me. Maybe I need to do something different but it's mostly him playing super fast flick kicks over background noises that are finely produced, but I wouldn't call it unreal. I've been listening to Na Ve Ka all morning and im not sure. I just don't know. I know its all subjective and yada yada but the claim that his music is one of the best produced music, I can't say I see it. lots of sounds he uses are piercing and the beats make me feel kinda mad. My coupla cents.
  6. Ooh, new Skeletone track. I always wonder about those comparison graphs that show modern music exceeding the range of the screen. Eg:- But also wonder if the range that modern music operates in has a wider boundary/sound stage so those images don't do it justice. Any way I think definitely music is getting louder, ears ringing from all electro clubs I visit is super common these days. Sometimes really shit sounds that I don't want to hear fill the room and make me wince... Eherm, Techno Smoke machine sweep noise. That brings me to another point. The techno smoke machine sweep noise can suck my balls. I've heard lots about the loudness wars, seems like a legit thing. Tell you what i've never seen, a video that says my ears are getting old and music is the same volume. What else would they be making new speakers for? You can tell your friend that Tsotsi says he is wrong.
  7. Damn, poor Radi, he got savaged. lol page 2 & 3 is where it's at, how did so much happen in 2 pages? So Astrancer never released an album, I can't find a collection of his singles anywhere, Radi has left us, Goa just got better and better post 2012.
  8. Ive read the first pge of this thread and the last, so maybe ive missed something but where do we find all of Astrancers old tracks?
  9. No disagreement from most of us, your 1.71 Sterling is welcome. Your reference albums are spot on too. The way you describe this album is exactly how i feel about Chi A.D Earth Crossing. The sort of album that makes you wonder if you are going to be able to enjoy another album ever again. Well I had the same thing when I first listened to Moksha, I didn't think I was ever going to find a Goa trance track exciting again. Luckily I still hadn't listened to Howling at the Moon at that point. I find it hard to believe that Psylent Buddhi didn't have the acclaim that Pleiadians, Cosmosis, Astral Projection etc had.
  10. Artist: Jagoa Title: The First Steps Label: Self Release Date: November 28, 2019 1. Het Fractale Elfje 2. Simon Says 3. Lunar Fractals 4. Tot Aan De Maan En Terug 5. Heel Ver Weg 6. Roots 7. Astral Flower Power 8. Intergalactic Hippy 9. Geometrical Vibration If Cronomi Hadn't thrown this release up on Facebook I may have never known about it. It's like Jago Boermans didn't want us to know about it. Maybe it's his little secret. Maybe he isn't happy enough with the results to be promoting it like it's better than a Late Late talk show. I don't know why any one wouldn't be happy with this production, it fucking rocks but if that is the reason then that's great, because some new works are going to be even better by his standard! That is all conjecture of course. Maybe Jago is just super chill and thinks that the universe will just do it's thing. Maybe he just wants to sit back and bask in his relevance to the cosmos. Either way, i'm happy with this release, full of warm low ends that wrap you up like the warmest safety blankets, Ominous acid that sits around the background and barking leads that shoot at you from the depths. ~ Het Fractale Elfje, The Jagoa tracks I do know handle samples and long intro’s really well. This is instantly the most industrial and raw of them all so far though. Dark, Moody, Metallic and still spacious. A great album intro and great track that has growling, grimy melodies. Simon Says Jago just wants people to dance a little more and worry a little less. Simon Says that the world is a complicated place and you can complicate it more by attaching yourselves to small parts of it to grasp for some sort of meaning because the prospect of allowing yourself to live in freedom is so horribly terrifying. Clap your hands and dance to this terrific track, fuck Simon, do it anyway. Lunar Fractals Comes in hot with some deep moods of forbearance. The disco baselines comes in and sweeps the track into ever deeper regions. The track grows and grows into a proper trance track that takes you away once again. Tot Aan De Maan En Terug smooths it way above your head with ease. The melody never grows old and cruises in, out & around the place for the rest of the track. Heel Ver Weg like all previous tracks builds into a monster. This time I didn’t even notice until I was swept up into the final crescendos of the final acts melodies and then released into the soft outro. Roots is another moody synth heavy track that carries you off into a world of floaty melodies. The track just gets cooler and cooler as it goes on. Connecting each emotion that it has created together into an uplifting sense of fulfilled joy. Astral Flower Power is a fully sparkled uplifting bit of enjoyment. Each break brings something new, like melodies of light force, interweaved spanglements of psychedelia and a dose of vitamin D so big you can forget the sun. Intergalactic Hippy might be one of the best tracks here for its atmospheres and breakdown after breakdown that releases in sweet insanity. Goametrical Vibration is a more tribal feeling track that has shed its moody club atmosphere for a more galactic experience. A slow burn as we spin through the Asteroid Belt only to find ourselves in the chaotic nothing beyond. A uplifting and cruisy closing track that floats you away out from the album with a sense of calm satisfaction. ~ If there is a proper release album coming out in the future then this album should be all you need to get prepped for it. Jago has a real talent for building tracks higher and higher. Each track is like a little journey that grows in intensity as it meanders through our minds. I really enjoyed this sneaky little release and will be purchasing it and all future works. https://jagoa.bandcamp.com/track/het-fractale-elfje
  11. Artist: Pete & Pan Title: Return Of The Goddess Label: Goa Madness Records Date: November 27, 2019 1. Serra Del Estrela 2. Elysian Fields 3. passing Spirits 4. Tantric Tweak, 5. The Fool 6. Abundance 7. Nowhere 8. Solstice 9. Muse (Bonus Track) Peiter, will you tell me a story? I’ll do better than that for you Peiter, we are going to make one together Pieter Goessens & Pieter van den Broeck make up Pete & Pan. If you haven't watched the Goa Madness interview with these fella's go and do so to get an idea of what they are all about. Alternatively you can take my word for it that they are all about having a fun and bringing enjoyment to the world. And if you know about Goa Madness Records then you probably know that they pretty much only release well produced psychedelic Goa albums. Taking this into account you can expect a well produced psychedelic Goa trance album that is almost filled to the brim with good times and positive story telling. The feel good aspect of this album is something I haven't heard since listening to Spiritual Healing. ~ Serra Da Estrela Good intro's are the most wonderful little gift that makes an album so much better. Serra Estrela has Astrix level Shamanic Tale vibes and does the trick of transporting you to another world like nothing else. The baseline is deadly and the magical atmospheres carry you through to a large vibrant melody that pick you up and take you higher and higher if you let it. Elysian Fields An anthem for all the teenage boys and girls out there that could never get some. A perfect mix of despondent teenage insecurity floats around positive future outlooks. If Elysian Field (Which is perfectly titled) does not pull an adolescent from their glum self pity into a mood terrorized by hope and positivity then nothing but time will. There is a playful little surprise for us further down the line that turns into a gamechanger for the track. Passing Spirits I like the vocal samples here. They all fit in really well and remind me of old 90's vocal trance that I used to hear in my friends old gym. Body Pump in North Australia circa 2005 is written all over this track. 8 bit sounds can also be found around Passing Spirits as can some key changes that almost always leave me feeling cheated. This time is no different but I find it easier to get over it and move on to my continued enjoyment of the track. The wicked first act sets the scene for the rest of the track that is The Fool. The smooth leads form into a smooth melody that travels around the void calmly juxtaposed against a dirty bassline and kickdrum. The two take turns with your attention and build a glitter spangled storyline Tantric Tweak Cool title and another cool intro comes as no surprise. If you want a track that builds and builds and builds then this might be the track for you. The explosion of feel good vibes wrapped up in a wide melody makes you want to stroll where rays of sunshine can surround you in warmth the way that Tantric Tweak warms you from the inside. Darker atmospheres crawl out of the intro to Abundance but quickly get buddied up next to some playful positivity. The track builds and builds into something almost unrecognizable to the beginning. Absolutely incredible story telling that has so far remained impossible to not get lost in. Nowhere Melodies of raw sugar screech across your brain and etch themselves into it. Behind that you have a melodies begging you to throw your arms out to the side to glide on euphoria. Solstice Starting energetic and full of playful potential as can be expected with these bubbas. Here you're gonna get more twists, just as many feel good melodies and scorching raw leads of nuclear fusion. Muse (Bonus Track) It's been a long time since ive sat through such a purposefully uplifting banger. Muse is the sort of track you close a magical festival experience with, leaving everyone full of bliss and peace. A favourite from the album for it's pure emotional power. ~ Goa Madness continue their selection of hand crafted, top quality maestro produced Goa Trance. The production quality here is on par with Hypnoxocks Eurythmia, everything is polished, clean & purposeful. Each Track is a story and each finishes far away from where it starts. Listen to your album however you want, but try as many different ways as possible, back to forth, front to back, on shuffle. each time you get a different perspective and a different journey. Some of the track in Return Of The Goddess are the sort of music The Muses Rapt should have been producing in 2019. Well Pieter & Pieter have taken the torch and given us something that is so delightful I'm scared of listening to it too much. If Pieter & Pieter are going to go to the effort of releasing this piece of wonder then i'll face my fears and listen to this album till my heart is content. This album is certainly going into my top 10 for 2019 and something I'll be bumping every time I need a little extra aural love in my life. Thank you Goa Madness and all of the Pieters involved in this project. https://goamadnessrecordsofficial.bandcamp.com/album/return-of-the-goddess
  12. I wrote a review for this Incandescent but lost it on my computer. In Summary, Celestial Intelligence brings us an album full of what they do well. Spacey tracks that are carried by their melodies of interwoven wonder. The structure of their tracks really stands out and makes listening a pleasure. For the amount of stuff going on it's a wonder the tracks still feel like they are so full of room. It comes across as the sort of album that simply requires two people to pull off. So expect twice the thought and twice the number of ideas. While it doesn't have the magical trio of Divine Miracles, Constant Motion & Anapa all of which are complete anthems, the style and production has been refined into a tight ball of skill. The overall psychedelia has been increased What I love most about Celestial Intelligence is their introductions of new elements. A seemingly meaningless little background noise can grow into the primary melody taking over from the last and keeping each track incredibly engaging. Favorite tracks are:- Alteration which has a great rise in intensity towards the 2nd half of the track Forking Paths for its development from a dark psychedelic number into soaring psychedelic euphoria Galactic Journey for being just that Psychic Transference for its classic Celestial melodic spirals of fun and overall atmosphere. The melodies are brighter and sharper than their previous album, the euphoria and 'wow' moments are still abundant and thanks to extra psychedelic elements I think it Incandescent does a great job at pulling you into each track. https://suntriprecords.bandcamp.com/album/incandescent
  13. I have found that my main aversion to pop is exactly that it is currently popular. I love listening to Gwen Stefani, Black Eyed Peas, Pink, etc etc now that is older and not played on radio.
  14. Someones gotta promote this project. The First Steps is a series of tracks made between 2012 & 2014 from Jago Boermans Jagoa Project. Deep moody hypnotic trance that sweeps you away to lost worlds that Jago created by having a little fun. Expect the above adjectives as well as groovy melodies that get bigger and bigger. It seems like this was just a quiet self release and if Cronomi hadn't posted about it I might not have known about it which would have been a shame. Well worth looking into, a pretty solid release. Tracklist:- Het Fractale Elfje Simon Says Lunar Fractals Tot Aan De Maan En Terug Heel Ver Weg 11:14 Roots 08:41 Astral Flower Power Intergalactic Hippy Goametrical Vibration https://jagoa.bandcamp.com/releases
  15. https://jagoa.bandcamp.com/track/het-fractale-elfje This sums it about up.
  16. A whole bunch of community generated content on a psynews channel wouldn't be a bad idea. This could be but one of many contributions.
  17. Well that clears up any confusion anyone was having ;p
  18. Personally I like the 35:00 drop. From someone that still goes to clubs, the "progressive goa" are pretty funky, they just sort of come out from underneath rather than above. Kinda takes you by surprise. Definitely a techno thing, especially those damn sweeps. I haven't heard a modern techno track that doesn't have a sound effect that just sounds like a high pitched smoke machine. #cocaine&ket
  19. Well now I can stop hiding my conversations here from my LGBT friends. Have you tried mixing it into a track yourself?
  20. The sentiment is there and he explains it so well. But I would say he is under selling the difference of 1% on an infinite scale. That 1% could be far grander than the phrase "Only 1% different" suggests. For example, our accomplishment as a species as well as our failures are far grander than 1% different to those of Chimps. As far as we know, the chance of other life is only a mathematical probability devoid of evidence. I believe there most certainly is life out there, but I still think that as far as we know, we are as good as it gets and we should be kinda settled by that.
  21. I'd call that intelligence, even if our measuring stick is our own measuring stick, we still have a measuring stick. Dolphins, Chimps & Mice are all great, but they don't have the ability of collective consciousness. No out of space travel, excluding Bobo, no greek, roman, continental or asian philosophy. If it wasn't for our glaring flaws of wanting to piss on everything and start fires in our own backyard we would just about have it all. Gaia theory suggests that nothing that comes from nature can act in way that nature did not attend. Therefore it could be perfectly natural for us humans to destroy ourselves and most other things, we might have a finite timeline that no version of Sapiens can surpass past a point, Fermi's great filter. This contradicts my earlier point before that we are exquisite. Rather Gaia is exquisite and we are completely ordinary going about our human things with no relative awareness beyond what is desired by nature. IDK
  22. Nervasystem - Time Travel Rotating Rama Non Terrestial Intelligence Interstellar Mutation Juddervision Dimension Expansion Narcosynthesis Cybermat Karmenbozia Rotating Rama I instantly expect Wagner’s Rise Of The Valkyries to start during this intro. Although I simply do not know why. But we don’t need that to giddy up into battle, Nervasystems bass line and kicks do the job just fine. What else can I say? The track spirals into a psychedelic wedding void of prenuptials but with champagne towers of funk. Non Terrestial Intelligence a fun take on a common theme. Forget the terristials and their otherworldly smarts, what about the non terrestrials huh? Well. A foresty kind of intro turns into a track that lives in the darkness. The aural embodiment of LSD shivers, slide down this track into your brain as a team of different layers swell toward you like they are on a try-out for the Schlabbaduerst rekkords cheerleader squad. Interstellar Mutation back with the extra terrestrials we find ourselves in the beep booping depths of space, is anybody out there? Well Nervasystem is and at the 1:55 mark he reminds you of that, can you spell ‘rumbelling baslines’ my friends? Leads of electrical energy fire themselves straight at you like a game of laser tag with teenagers and too much frozen Fanta. But oh no, don’t think that is meant as a bad thing. How could it be when the reverse bass is that doped up and heavy. Juddervision I might’ve had Juddervision before. Hard to know when you don’t know what the gosh danged fuck Juddervision is. Great song though, hard, fast & aggressive, the trifecta. Another perfect fit for Schlabbaduerst rekkords Volume 13. A simple lead quickly develops into psychedelic bliss. Why does everything this guy do sound so damn good? The main melody is so metallic and funkedlically spinny. Awesome stuff. Dimension Expansion Nervasystem could just draw his intro’s out to a full track length and I wouldn’t notice until it ended. Well he aint gonna do that, instead he's going to turn Dimension Expansion into a mansion owned by Deedrension Emery filled with leads that have emancipation and enhancing backwords dancing kept away from Emery’s enemy Ketrahension Newery and her severely severed sense lacking didactic pension. Narcosynthesis comes in nice and hard with another favourite melody/lead of the album. Raw with a drizzle of Greek styled balsamic drizzle Narcosynthesis really hits home. It simply seems to never end which is completely wonderful and the ideal feeling from an amped track that is this good. Cybermat Smooth galvanized steel ambiences in the background of another foreboding intro, a bassline comes in and its go time. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that just because this song has the word mat in it that this song is going to be taken on the ground getting stepped on. Simply not the case and btw stop thinking like that in general its unhelpful and unhealthy you sicko. Karmenbozia I really did assume that this word was made up and could not have ever told you that I thought there was going to be a ‘Karmenbozia’ sample. Good and rare find as far as I am concerned. Nervasystem gives this track a more progressive edge and plays around with positioning of sounds rather than creating a wacked out wil’n banger. From the perspective of this guy I suppose it is a downtempo track. But beware, he still manages to trip you out towards the end. Quite the album and Quite the artist. As far as my preference for dark psytrance/goa/whatever-we-call-it goes this is probably at the top of my list of most preferred. Truly a must have for any collector and appreciator of this fine musical sub culture. https://anjunarecords.bandcamp.com/album/nervasystem-time-travel
  23. Artist: Sky Technology Album: Rainbow Spirit Label: Neogoa Records Release: September 29, 2019 1. Hidden Secrets 2. Escape From Babylon (Sky technology Remix) 3. Winky Dink And Nod (Album Version) 4. Fake Dance 5. Katedra – Collision Course (Sky Technology) 6. A Ray Of Light (Album Acid Version) 7. Just Do It 8. Kids Don’t Eat Alien Protein (Album Version) 9. Rainbow Spirit 10. Memories of Another Life Sky Technology is Dmitriy Kolosovskiy who has released 4 studio albums including Rainbow Spirit. I kind of remember Spirituality although I Don't think I ever listened to it through and through, the rest of his albums are going to require some searching from me. I have thoroughly enjoyed his features on various compilations and have until now thought that he mostly did Neogoa and down-tempo Goa which he rules at. I’ve listened to Rainbow Spirit from start to finish, back to front, and shuffled all about. I get the most enjoyment on the Shuffle option and decided to review from that angle. 4. Fake Dance: Damn this fella is going fast and hard on this album. If I heard this on a dancefloor in the deep hours of the night I would come out the other end a jabbering jattering jittering mess. For at home listening it’s a little too hard for me, but That doesn’t mean I can’t see the place for this crazy ass song. The Final louder and more intense lead is pretty wild and enjoyable. In fact it’s absolutely wild. 6. A Ray of Light was one of my favourite tracks off of the Call of Goa Vol. 3 Compilation and the Album Acid Version just brings it to another level. Sky Technology brings the energy right from the start to the finish and doesn't skimp on the light rays of aural sensation. 8. Kids Don’t Eat Alien Protein (Album Version): Does he mean they don’t eat alien protein anymore? Damn kids have changed. I believe this to be one of my favourite on the album. 9. Rainbow Spirit comes at you with more another machine gun bassline and a bright Nitzho melody that turns into a pretty exciting midway break before coming back just as hard. The main break and final leads stand out here, the rest of the track doesn’t quite hit home for me. 2. Escape From Babylon comes in a bit of an easier pace to keep up with and instantly brings the vibe of a banger. This is most certainly my album favourite. The leads whip around each other while the kick pounds onwards never giving up. 10. Memories of Another Life starts with all the potential of a track that could be chill. Aint gonna happen though hombres. The track really takes off at 3:18 and gives us a taste of something we haven’t heard on the album yet. 3. Winky Dink And Nod has all the feels of a Nitzho track found in the deep forests of Scandinavia. Squelches and bubbles envelope the track and keep it dark and deep. 1. Hidden Secrets is tribalistic goa and another track with a difference on the album. Maybe one of the best produced tracks here with an entire catalogue of elements working towards a beautiful piece of work. 7. Just Do It is another fast and hard machine gun pound fest. Not a favorite but definitely appealing to those that like it fast, hard, relentless and extreme. 5. Katedra - Collision Course (Sky Technology Remix) Obviously this isn't going to be some rinky dink Sloa Version of Collision Course... Wait. Has Katedra even released the original of this track yet? Well gonna be a gatling gun firing rounds of bass in your face with the fastest strobe light we have. I really loved the screech lead that came in at 2:40, but have to stop myself from being disappointed that it doesn't spiral into something more amazing. The only reason this thought hits me is because the final bar sounds like it's about to jump into a different rhythm and start bouncing all around the place, instead it repeats itself onward. Putting this unreasonable expectation aside Sky Technology's remix is balls to the wall great and finally a fast and hard track that I can listen to over and over again. That is the album folks and Folkettes. A nice mix of Goa and super fast Goa that changes the music I expect to hear when I see Sky Technology release a track. Other than some bass lines that I wasn't a huge fan of I think the album has mostly solid tracks that will tear up a dance floor without a doubt in my mind. I have about 6 favourites which is decent 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10. Most of the track sit between a 7 - 9 minute run time which is completely appropriate for their intensity. Trance2MoveU made a comment on his spirituality album in 2016 "Dmitriy Kolosovskiy from Kiev is a guy that has taken goa to places that may make some feel uncomfortable yet refreshed at the same time." Well that holds for this album too, a little bit of both for our pleasure. Well done to all involved, another extreme album to add to the growing collection of chaos that has been released in 2019. https://neogoarecords.bandcamp.com/album/rainbow-spirit
  24. Matter of perspective. Being the only living organism that can not just imagine but create a collective imagination between us is pretty neat. Being able to create megastructures like society isn't a bad achievement either. Then you've got art, space travel, jokes, love, technology, ideologies. We have pretty much mapped every single road on planet earth, figured out how to live effectively together in large numbers (Although we lack the will power to do what is required). I'm in Australia talking to some one in The UK while listening to a saved video of a Vinyl only Jungle set & trying to convince some one in Germany not to give up. As far as impressive species go there are Homo Sapiens and then there are Emperor Penguins. We are also terrible for not doing all the wonderful things we know how to do and instead treat each other poorly. We will certainly be the only ones responsible for our own demise. But at least we once got to live.
